What's up with my rangefinder?
« on: June 11, 2017, 06:53:46 PM »
Yesterday I was out and about shooting my bow and ranging alot of different targets. I noticed there was a little jagged edge in my viewfinder when I looked through it, then over the course of the rest of the afternoon one little jagged spot turned into a bunch. Any idea what's going on with this?

Interesting you say that because I read on another site where a guys Vortex did this and then they sent him a new one and that one did it as well. Mines not a Vortex though, just to clarify. I thought about the internal paint possibly bubbling or something but it was only 70 degrees yesterday and I wouldve figured that would only happen in extreme temps, but I really have no idea.

Do you leave your range finder in your hot car?

Nope. I always put it away when I'm done with it. I bought it a few months ago so it hasn't really even seen summer temps yet.

It's the Luepold RX1200I TBR W/ DNA. I exchanged it for a new one back in June and the new one started doing it again this weekend.
