Vectronix Shooting Solutions New Rangefinding Binoculars -The Firearm Blog

One of the most interesting product launches at the recent IWA exhibition in Germany was Vectronix Shooting Solutions as a new business unit of Safran Vectronix, and their new VECTOR X rangefinding binoculars in 8×42, 10×42 and 12×42. I think that regardless if you use it for hunting, extreme long-range shooting or long-range shooting competitions its features are going to be appreciated, like MRAD reticles, D-Pad control, heads-up Applied Ballistics Elite calculations on an active-matrix OLED display and a laser that shoots longer than almost any caliber. There are also new RADICAL X binoculars with MRAD reticles.

The Radical X

I had a quick go at the Vector X model at IWA, and I liked it a lot. Hopefully, we can have a system, including wind meter(s), for review.

VECTOR X: SETTING A NEW STANDARD IN RANGEFINDING BINOCULARS

Building on its legacy of equipping the world’s most renowned military units,
the VECTOR X, the flagship of Vectronix Shooting Solutions, sets a new benchmark

design and two MRAD-based reticles to choose from. With an IP-67 rating and
durable rubber armoring, the VECTOR X stands out as an exceptional observation
tool even under tough usage conditions. With a 905nm laser and the capability
to measure distances of up to 7000 yards / 6400 meters (laser class 1M)
or 4400 yards / 4000 meters (laser class 1, Europe) the VECTOR X is a rangefinding
binocular for the most demanding shooting scenarios.
With unrivaled usability as its guiding principle, the VECTOR X is the first
commercial rangefinding binocular to incorporate intuitive D-Pad control.

Whether novice or experienced users, the Human-Machine Interface (HMI) of the
VECTOR X allows users to instantly grasp its operation from the moment they
pick it up for the first time. This user-friendly design guarantees effortless
usability, making the VECTOR X accessible to users of all proficiency levels.
Instantly after a measurement, the VECTOR X provides complete firing solutions
calculated by Applied Ballistics Elite on its bright Active-Matrix OLED
display, with the elevation adjustment and two windage values displayed on a
single screen. Seamless integration with third-party devices and apps allows
users to connect their VECTOR X to Kestrel weather meters, Garmin wrist-mounted
computers, and ballistic apps.
