Pulsar Axion 2 XG35 vs Pulsar Axion 2 XG35 LRF (NEW 2022) | Optics Trade Debates

  • Maja 

Welcome to our latest Optics Trade debate. This time, we'll be comparing and discussing the differences between two very similar devices:

What are the main differences between Axion 2 XG35 and Axion 2 XG35 LRF?

The main difference is that the Axion 2 XG35 LRF model has a laser rangefinding compartment. The compartment is located on the left side of the device, with a button on it.

Difference in size

Axion 2 XG35 LRF is a bit bigger than the standard model. The device's laser rangefinding compartment makes it difficult to use if you're left-handed. For the standard Axion 2 XG35 model, it doesn't matter whether you are using the device with your left or right hand.

It is worth noting that the strap is only on the right side of the device. Even so, you can still use it quite easily with your left hand. You can hold it normally with your left hand, but it is a bit more difficult than if the straps were placed on both sides.

Difference in weight

Then there's the weight difference. Because of the laser rangefinding compartment, the Axion 2 XG35 LRF model weighs 80 grams more than the standard model. The difference is not that significant.

What about the price?

The difference in price between the two devices is 300 euros. The standard Axion 2 XG35 costs 2.490 euros, whereas the Axion 2 XG35 LRF model costs 2.790 euros. This is significantly lower than we anticipated.

We saw these devices at IWA 2022 and assumed they would be priced at 3000 euros or above; a price of 3.500 euros also seemed likely.

We expected a higher price because Axion 2 XG35 thermal monoculars have a completely new French-made sensor with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels that features a 12-micron pixel pitch.

Where are Pulsar Axion 2 XG35 made?

Axion 2 XG35 devices are entirely made in Europe, in Lithuania. Pulsar also provides service in the European Union.

Final thoughts on Axion 2 XG35 and Axion 2 XG35 LRF

Both Pulsar Axion 2 XG35 LRF and Axion 2 XG35 devices have magnesium housings, great fit and finish, and the best quality in the industry. Because of these great features, we expected a higher price.

Because of their low price, these thermal monoculars will be popular. It'll be tough for all the other companies to compete with these two devices.
