Are you anti 1st generation NV? Read On !!!
I am not saying I know everything about NV, I have
been using it for a few years and different models
etc, but what I
will say is this! I challenge all the ANTI 1st
generation NV people to take me up on this!
Many say save and buy second generation rather as 1st
isn’t good enough, well READ ON! This system is better
than many 2nd generation units in my opinion.
Night Vision is very misunderstood and often
underrated, especially 1st generation
equipment, and here I challenge anybody to challenge
me. I will say that I am willing to put myself in a
vulnerable position and say that – I challenge anybody
that says 1st generation is crap and not
worth it and that what you can see at night is
limited, I challenge you today, I will invite you to
visit with me, and I will take you out on the farm,
on a PITCH DARK NIGHT - NO MOON,
and I will hand you my Cobra Meteor binoculars or my
( BOTH 1st generation)
and I will fit it with the above laser infra red
devise. And when you look through that binocular if
you can say to me man that’s crap as I told you before
then I am willing to give you a cheque of R100, 000
how’s that! I challenge you! Come anytime you want, I
will wait for you. I remember once I read on a forum a
guy claiming that he hunted with red lights and killed
jackal, and then used NV but he had no real better
results, then all I can say is you must get good
equipment for NV and learn how to use it, and your
results will be far better.
cannot compare red light hunting against NV, using
quality NV is simply far superior.
To witness the above devise mounted on a 1st
generation binoculars, like mine I can see a jackal in
his full form at 120m coming into my call
IN PITCH DARK SKY
CONDITIONS, I can pick up his eyes at
over 400m away, and when he comes in at about 170m I
can start to see the image. (Without a narrow centre
circle of light) So, come on and call my bluff! If you
do you will lose.
If you want a challenge come to the farm and we check
it out, after that night if you still are ANTI 1st
generation NV you are only bluffing yourself!
And that’s a fact.
TILL YOU SEE THIS IN ACTION IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE
To witness top class equipment like this laser is
amazing, TAKE NOTE – this is not a red dot or green
dot laser, it is an INFRA RED laser that throws a
circle of light inside your circle of light from your
binoculars, so in other words when you look through a
binoculars it has a round circle of a picture, now
this is the same EXCEPT inside that circle is another
circle of infra red white light that throws a long
tube of light. And it is like a L Force light, you can
turn the head and it makes the light beam close in or
get smaller or larger. But the more you turn it in the
further it throws a light inside your binoculars to a
longer range and the tighter the circle the more
clearer the image, so at 100m with it turned say ¾ way
in you can see a jackal clearly with no problem at
all. It’s like a television, the more pixels the
clearer. So by bringing in that beam of light you get
a longer range and clearer picture.
SHEEP FARMERS/ GAME FARMERS & HUNTERS
Again I am willing to lay claim that – if we took all
South Africa and put all the hunters and farmers in a
big hall and one by one they went outside and looked
through the binocular on the darkest of nights, when
they came back in I tell you that all the jackal and
pig hunters would say
I WANT ONE NOW!
Nobody would say its crap – when you look through this
it is awesome.
This laser with infra red to be pretty blunt is
AMAZING! It is fantastic. It is like
looking down a pipe and the closer you go down the
pipe the more you see out the front, that’s an easy
way to explain it.
If you hunt a jackal but don’t use quality NV you
haven’t hunted a jackal yet, and when you try this you
will NEVER hunt with red lights ever again!
I was taught as a young man the following two things
Never comment on something you know nothing about and
2 - if in doubt there is doubt so
be doubtful. BUT with this system, I was never in
doubt and to all of the readers of this, if anybody
reads it and questions my statements here, all I say
is until you try this don’t comment on it, but trust
you don’t believe it, I am open to that challenge any
Come and I will show
you what 1st Gen can do, this concept is
I mounted this laser on my Cobra Meteor, and man I
will keep it on for good! What I can see is amazing,
the one test I looked along a farm sand road, the road
we walked out to 140m before it hit a corner, and with
the laser on I could see clearly to the turn in the
road, anything coming into the call I would pick him
up straight away. I was next to a tree line on our
left, those trees ranged at 150m, with this laser on
the binocular I could see the stumps of the trees as
clear as day in pitch dark, and if I made the laser
white light in my binoculars smaller the quality is so
good that I could count the thick branches on the left
and right of each tree. (In pitch darkness at 150m).
Again if you think I am joking, you can challenge me
any day to prove it,
now ask yourself a
question - if you can see so well on a pitch dark
night, how well will you see on a moon night!
Until a hunter uses NV for predator hunting he will
not understand what he is missing, it is entering into
another world, and when you see at a distance those
huge glowing eyes approaching and you watch him come
closer you can tell he has no idea what is watching
him, just remember if you are in the Vrystaat, and
call open fields, make sure to place that caller far
away from you so he cant see your bakkie standing in
the open while you scan with NV, as its open not bushy
like the Karoo.
December 12th / 2009
Here is an article from last week when we went out, it
is on my website but read what I said here, I was
using this system this very night with Daniel, man
what a seriously awesome devise!!!!.
Well this was indeed fun, a good friend and I decided
to get out and test new Night Vision equipment, we had
Luna Binoculars 5 power, new night vision rifle
scopes, monovisions, and a few other varieties of
expensive stuff to test and see what we will use in
2010, stuff changes so we must keep with the times.
We went to a farm that has given me many cats over the
past years; I have hunted it from 2001. We made a
stand off the road 140m from the point of a crossroad,
and all around us open fields, except for cover and
trees dead ahead. (Cat areas)
We never had a rifle as we never planned on hunting,
and just opened the back of the bakkie, and pulled
down the canvas, and waited for nightfall and the
darkest of skies, it was pitch black so we begun, and
tested all new models and other exciting models
including a new laser device that extends NV even much
further than normal. (This we now ALWAYS will
After about 3 hours of testing what each unit can do,
I said to Daniel, well we need to test it on a bat
eared fox as they are plenty here, and when you call
them they stand for a long time offering a lot of time
to look at live animals and take photos or just
observe with night vision models, they offer you a lot
of time to look and observe and test NV equipment on
so it is a good animal to practise on generally.
So we each picked up a set of NV equipment and stood
at the back of the bakkie, the night was pitch dark,
December 12th -2009) , so
at 9.40 I put a new call in my mouth, I had just
finished putting it together last week actually, a new
I called catty style with it, an open reeded style,
and both of us scanned with NV, after 20 minutes I
picked up eyes at about 120m looking from the tree
line area, then it walked towards us, at about 100m I
turned on the Infra Red Laser and centred the spot of
infra red light on the animal, I could see the lynx
easily, it came closer and at 21m it stopped dead for
the first time, it turned and looked left and right,
and Daniel and I could not believe that here sits a
very prime lynx, 21m from us, and we had no rifle. We
had no choice but to kill it with some very choice
words until it got tired of this rabbit and moved off.
I have called many cats in my time with hand calls,
and this was the first one I called without a rifle,
next time we will have a gun! Even for testing………
Anyway, we will get him next time! But that’s Murphy’s
Interesting again on this hunt, the cat was called in
windy conditions, I have called the majority of my
cats with a wind blowing, and again proving cats cant
smell you, this one had a breeze blowing in his face
from over 120m to 21m for over 10 minutes and still he
came and looked in our direction.
BUT because you use Night Vision they come real close
and are not troubled by any lights.
Night Vision RULES!!!
Pussy cat won this round!
SALES OF NIGHT VISION
NIGHT VISION EQUIPMENT CALL RICHARD AT 0823120035
My personal opinion;
Best value for money is Luna Binoculars with laser IR
(The above laser fits this model)
I have tested this model and later bought one, it is
strong and has amazing clarity at night, a top class
night vision binoculars and with that laser its better
than some 2nd generation units.
Richard stocks a large amount of NIGHT VISION
equipment, he also has the above mentioned items –
other equipment he has that I think will appeal to the
farmer/ hunter is the following.
Remember the MONO (single tube) night vision units are
cheaper than binoculars but they strain your eyes, it
is better to go with a double tube.
Here is an idea of a few other products he offers.
