About this item
- Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
- The Impact 1000 features an intuitive platform with angle compensation; perfect for bowhunters and range-day lovers. Range targets down to five yards out, with the ability to stretch out to 1,000 yards if need be.
- The primary HCD mode displays an angle compensated distance that is ideal for the majority of hunters and shooters. An advanced LOS mode provides the option to calculate long distance, high angle shots with increased precision.
- A scan feature gives continuous range readings to pan across a landscape or track a moving target. All modes can be set to read in yards or meters.
- The diopter located on the eyepiece adjusts for differences in a user's eyes. Added 6x magnification brings targets in for a closer look and more accurate ranging.
- Fully multi-coated optics enhance light transmission in low light settings. Waterproof and shockproof performance keep you in the hunt no matter what the conditions.

Impact 1000 Laser Rangefinder (LRF101)
When all you need is an intuitive platform with angle compensation–we're looking at you, bowhunters and range-day lovers–the Impact 1000 is all the rangefinder you need and then some. If things get up close and personal, range targets down to five yards out, with the ability to stretch out to 1,000 yards if need be. Lightweight and simple to operate, the Impact 1000 gets you on target fast meaning you can no longer justify going into the field without a laser rangefinder.
HCD (Horizontal Component Distance) Mode
The Impact 1000’s HCD range display is intended to be the primary mode—used for most rifle and archery shooting conditions. The yardage number displayed is the critical horizontal component distance.
Use the HCD range mode in the following situations:
• Rifle shooting on level ground at any range.
• Rifle shooting out to ranges of 800 yards with mild slopes (less than 15 degrees).
• Rifle shooting out to ranges of 400 yards with moderate slopes (15 to 30 degrees).
• For all archery shooting.
The displayed HCD yardage number is corrected for shot angle and needs no extra user input; shooters simply use the appropriate level ground bullet drop and wind adjustment for the range displayed and shoot. Archers use the appropriate level ground sight pin for the range displayed and shoot.
LOS (Line of Sight) Mode
The Impact 1000’s LOS (Line of Sight) mode is intended for rifle shooters who are using slope correcting ballistic drop data cards, ballistic cell phone applications, or other ballistic programs and who are shooting at distances beyond 500 yards and with slopes greater than 15 degrees. Most shooters and archers will not need the LOS mode.
The range number displayed in LOS mode is the actual line of sight range with no ballistic correction for slope. Most of the commonly used ballistic devices can provide independent slope correction for bullet drop data and require actual line of sight range input. Using the LOS range when calculating bullet wind drifts under these steep slope/long range conditions will provide a higher degree of accuracy than using the HCD range.
To use, simply input the LOS range number into the electronic device or use the LOS range when referencing ballistic drop cards with slope correction.
The Scan feature can be used to range moving targets or help range smaller targets on uniform backgrounds in either HCD or LOS modes. Once powered up, press and hold the Measure button and scan the laser back and forth, watching for changes in the yardage number as the crosshairs move across the target object. A blinking 'S' display indicates Scan Ranging is activated.

1. The cross hairs were off center to the right so you have to tilt it to the left get it straight up and down. Seriously?
2. I tried measure distances and would get different numbers. Not long distances, like 30 yards and get different readings by a yard every time. Seriously?
3. Case it comes with isn't enclosed to properly protect it. Really?
4. Claims to be using angle compensation, but doesn't provide any information about the angles or the distance it's changing, so you're just blindly taking the rangefinder at face value all the time. No one seriously about accuracy would like that.
The only real positive I would say is the construction seems great for all weather, and the warranty sounds great. Everything else is average.
Vortex makes a superior product. This thing is super clear, works well in low light and is a trusty source to get a range on an object!
With Vortex’s warranty you can’t go wrong!
