What was new with the Kestrel Sportsman Weather Meter with Applied Ballistics compared to the previous Kestrel 4500 Sportsman series:
Spin Drift - this was not on the 4500 Sportsman.
Takes 1 AA battery (instead of 2 AAA batteries)
The battery door is at the back, away from the motherboard, if your battery is leaking as it was the case with all the 4000 series.
For some illumination of the screen resolution (even sunlight) and easy on the eyes.
Intuitive screen navigation in the user interface.
Multiple languages: English, French, German, Spanish
Window and resistant to breakage and scratches.
All meters include the two options of red (NV - Night Vision) and white backlighting.
Slightly larger, the difference is not really noticeable. Suitable for the same cases.
Approximately 10,000 data points.
Kestrel Sportsman Weather Meter with applied ballistic features
Uses the enhanced Applied Ballistics G1/G7 solver, including Aerodynamic Jump, Spin Drift and Coriolis corrections for accurate long-range shooting.
Muzzle Velocity Truing provides accurate ball speed measurement without a timer.
Choice of solution units (Mils, MOA or clicks) - Works with any gun or range of sight.
Weather Mode provides all the environmental measurements, storage and mapping capabilities of the Kestrel 5500 Weather Meter, including wind speed, direction, crosswind, temperature, humidity, pressure and altitude.
The large hi-contrast hi-res graphic display is perfectly readable under the brightest sunlight. Includes bright white backlighting and red backlighting to preserve night vision.
Rugged (drop tested to MIL-STD-810G standards) and waterproof (IP67 waterproof).
Neck cord and AA lithium battery included.
The Kestrel Sportsman is an invaluable value in complete ballistic calculators with accuracy and reliability. This integrated ballistic resolution and time counter eliminates the guesswork of long range shooting and is an ideal companion for hunters and shooters working within the supersonic flight range of their bullet.
The new Kestrel 5 Series platform adds many new features and options. If you are familiar with the Kestrel 4500, the first thing you will notice is the larger, higher resolution and contrast display and improved font readability. The Kestrel 5 Series includes an integrated two-colour backlight, extra-strong polycarbonate lens and AA battery operation. Like all Kestrel meters, the Kestrel Sportsman is drop, dust and water resistant and can withstand harsh environments without damage - so it can accompany you to the range or hunting for years to come. A range of carrying pouch options allows you to take your Kestrel Sportsman with you.
In addition to the ballistic solver's capabilities, you can open the meter in "weather mode", a complete weather counter for measuring and recording primary environmental conditions: wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, heat index, pressure and altitude. Combined with the Vane Mount, the Kestrel Sportman becomes a compact and easily deployable weather station.
