Ballistics isn't just a science, it's an art. Experienced hunters eventually develop a "sixth sense" of which shots are likely to result in a clean, ethical kill. But beginning hunters and shooters face a fairly steep learning curve on the matter, and it doesn't help that ballistic science requires the kind of math that's difficult to do in one's head, especially under stress. That's why the new-for-2024 Leica Geovid Pro 10x42 AB+ has us excited. It features state-of-the-art ‘Shot Probability Analysis’ technology developed by leading ballistics software manufacturer Applied Ballistics, designed to significantly enhance shooting and hunting accuracy, helping you make the best decisions in real time.
Here's how it works. The Shot Probability Analysis calculates the probability of hitting your desired target by evaluating the reliability of four main parameters: distance, wind speed, rifle precision and muzzle velocity of the bullet. After providing variable input data, users receive a hit probability percentage shown both in the Leica Hunting App and the Geovid Pro AB+ display. This advanced technology supports ethical, safe and informed shots.
The Geovid Pro AB+ offers these ballistic answers using a top-tier rangefinder, with results in a fraction of a second. The binoculars provide individual measurements and a scanning mode, ensuring reliable performance even in challenging conditions. With a maximum range of 3,200 yards or more, and accuracy of +/- 0.5 yards, they are ideal for any long-range hunting or shooting application. The inclusion of Leica ProTrack further enhances the capabilities of the Geovid Pro AB+ offering the ability to plot GPS mapping points in BaseMap and Google Maps, elevating in-field tracking, surveying and game recovery to unprecedented levels of precision.
As you would expect with premium German glass, the Geovid Pro range is equipped with Leica’s signature best-in-class optics that deliver exceptional performance, highlighted by outstanding color fidelity, specially coated prisms and enhanced stray-light and reflection correction.
