User Review: Silva Ranger Ultra 530
Price Paid: CDN $70
Beautifully crafted. Bought and checked it against Eclipse and Ranger model with prism. Tested them for land surveys, urban planning, map making and mountaineering. The Ranger model comes on top. But I'm cannot find any information on the split-mirror idea, and it appears the "Ultra" model is discontinued. The Ranger model is more accurate and smoother to use with maps than the other systems. I hope there is a good explanation for the split mirror, because it makes the mirror less usable for a number of other uses such as... a mirror, or for taking reverse sightings. If anyone knows, please let me know. I went to the Silva websites, and could not find anything.
