Melville, NY (January 12, 2018) –Nikon just changed the laser rangefinder game with the introduction of its new MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED. This incredibly small, lightweight unit is feature-packed with Nikon’s award-winning optical image stabilization technology, crisp new red OLED display and 3,000 yard fast-ranging capability. It will most certainly redefine the expectations of hunters and shooters in 2018 and beyond.
The optical stabilization system in the MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED reduces viewfinder vibrations by approximately 80%*, while simultaneously aligning the viewed image with the laser. This function begins immediately when the unit is powered-up and assures faster, more successful “first-shot” measurements.
MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED has a maximum measurement distance of 3,000 yards on reflective targets and displays distances in .1-yard increments. An all-new variable intensity, crisp red OLED reticle display provides either automatic or five selectable brightness levels for maximum contrast against most targets and backgrounds. The rangefinder’s 6x monocular features bright, fully multicoated optics, user-friendly 18mm eye relief and a wide 7.5° field of view for fast target acquisition.
Nikon’s HYPER READ technology displays all measurements in approximately 0.3 seconds—regardless of the distance. By holding down the power button on the MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED, the user can continuously measure across multiple targets for 8 seconds.
The MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED integrates Nikon’s ID (incline/decline) Technology to take the angle out of your shooting equation–up to an incredible +/- 89 degrees. It also offers the ability to switch between First Target Priority Mode (reading of the closest target) or Distant Target Priority Mode (provides range to the furthest target through clutter, branches etc.)
Not only is the MONARCH 3000 STABILIZED exceptionally compact and lightweight (3.8” x 2.9” x 1.7” and 6.3 ounces), it is also waterproof in structure and backed by Nikon’s 5-Year Warranty. This game-changing, feature-packed unit comes at a suggested retail price of only $419.95.
*The effect of Vibration Reduction: Vibrations of the image in the viewfinder caused by hand movement (sinusoidal waves) are reduced to approx. 1/5 or less, (Based on Nikon’s measurement standards).
