Halo XRT 6×24 Rangefinder Review – Tips for Hunting and Golfing

halo xrtThis is one of the few Rangefinders which is widely marketed as being both for hunting and for use in Golf. If you partake in both of these activities then great, but the chances are you’re only going to be focused on one, so we’ve taken a look at the Halo XRT 6×24 and its features, before summarizing whether it met expectations for golf use, as well as what it can do for the hunters out there.

This is one of the greatest rangefinder products used in the United States of America and around the world. It is powered with optic-logic technology.

Features:

  • Water-resistant so it can be used in all sorts of conditions
  • It allows constant ranging for if you need to move it around while focusing
  • 6x magnification
  • Images are crystal clear with a very high quality screen
  • Easy to focus
  • Easy to read
  • Simple display and information which doesn’t clutter the view
  • The readout can be changed to meters or yards depending on your own preference
  • 600 yard range
  • Lightweight and easily fits within your golf bag
  • Super easy to use, even a beginner can get to grips with it in no time

Whether you are on the golf course or you are woods hunting, this may well be the right product for you. Definitely, it is one of the best out there, and is among the best selling products of its kind. The company behind it, wildgame innovations, are not the best known, but they offer a huge amount of quality for outdoor hobbies.

Further analysis

The accuracy is simply outstanding. This is the right product for you if you are looking for the most accurate ranges without breaking the bank, as to be honest, it is pretty affordable by the standards of rangefinders, especially the ones which have been designed for golf use, which can be pricey. Scan modes takes about 20 seconds to activate. The battery life stays for a long period of time.

Cons

If you browse through the internet, you will see a wide range of online reviews. Some are good; few are on the bad side. Some have criticized this product simply because it takes a CR2 battery rather than being rechargeable. It lasts long, because they are 3 volts unlike the 1.5 volts of AA, AAA, C and D batteries, but nevertheless the battery type can be a little awkward. Though some describe this as a con, it can be used anywhere and if you’re on a long golf trip or hunting trip you can take it and just make sure you have spare batteries rather than recharging.

It doesn’t have the most advanced features like other devices, things like slope measurements, but lets face it, you’re probably going to be parting with huge amounts of cash to get all of the features. The unit has been mentioned by some reviewers as not being completely waterproof, though most others have described it as having no such problems, and after all, it is described as resistant to water, not totally waterproof. Use in a bit of rain will probably be fine, dropping it in a pond might not be such a good idea!

Final Verdict

It comes at a very good price especially when you are analysing its extremely reasonable price. Halo XRT 6×24 Rangefinder is straightforward, easy to operate, user-friendly. It will be difficult to find a product that will offer such value at this price. Due to its compact design, it allows for a more improved portability.

This product is able to display units both in meters and yards. Its battery compartment can be accessed both conveniently and easily and guarantees you a high level of accuracy, and efficiently designed to prioritize distant targets. The manual comes with clearly defined instructions. This will help the user to use it properly.

This product can also be used in a wide range of activities such as golf, bow hunting and so on. This is the right product if you are looking for an effective, reliable, efficient and effective kit that will get the job done as quickly as possible. The high reviews online will show you that this is one of the best out there.
