Leupold GX 4i2 Rangefinder Review

 The Leupold GX-4i2 has 2 major changes in this new model.  I already mentioned the new Smart Key faceplate; Yellow is non-conforming, silver is conforming.  They now have more power, or more disabling power than the previous one.  The other new addition is the PinHunter technology is improved.  While I have been impressed by the previous PinHunter tech, the advances are impressive.  The one knock on laser rangefinders, especially Leupolds has been the shaky hand.  Because of the smaller size of the rangefinder and typical one-handed use, someone with shaky hands would often miss the pin or have trouble getting an accurate reading of their desired target.  PinHunter2 technology is legit good.  I could get really accurate readings even as I was shivering in the cold this spring.  I rarely shot twice and never a 3rd time because I got a correct reading on the first shot.  If there was ever a prism it beeped instantly.
Leupold GX 4i2 Rangefinder Review
The rest of the Leupold GX-4i2 hasn’t changed from previous models.  The size is the same, the OLED red display are the same, the 6x mag is the same, the crystal clear optics are the same, the prism lock beep is the same and all the slope features remain the same.  .  Just looking at it and using it for a short time probably wouldn’t make the new features stick out, but on the course, even just one round, the PinHunter2 was very noticeable.  While Leupolds Rangefinder have always been fast, this one is faster and more accurate.
