What experts liked
The rangefinder also has an auto shut off feature which would shut the rangefinder off after 20 seconds of inactivity.
- Rangefinder Now
That’s because Halo considers themselves experts in ergonomical designs that provides comfort and ease of use for the handler.

One feature that bowhunters specifically are sure to love is the AI feature. This is one unit that is capable of compensating the impact of an angle on the shot.
- Target Crazy
The best part about the Halo XL450 is, it is waterproof. Well, I would typically choose it mainly because of this feature as handling bad climate should be one of the top priorities for any rangefinder manufacturer. Hunting is an outdoor sport therefore, all your hunting equipment should be both durable and weather resistant.

AI technology determines the range and angle to a target with hold-over ballistic data. It nips the projectile trajectory and drop value in the bud for hunters or archers when angling for a target in a tree blind or downhill. It integrates an inclinometer for high precision ranges without second-guessing your feedback.
- Rangefinder Lab
Equipped with Angle Intelligence Technology, this rangefinder is capable of measuring slopes in its given range. If there’s a slope in your intended shot, the readings will be adjusted accordingly and the data provided to you will be accurate.
- Sports and Outdoor Tips
A built-in Inclinometer. This feature measures the angle from the target to the shooter. By running in through an algorithm, it can accurately determine the best angle for perfect shot accuracy.
- The Big Deer
The special Ai Technology even accounts for slopes within your range as part of the yardage to your target.
- Sniper Country
What experts didn't like
The LCD display is decent for the price you pay. But it does not have the ability to illuminate the range measurement which can be an issue when used under low light.

Many rangefinders on this list, the display can be difficult to read in low lightconditions. This can cause some problems for hunters since most animals move during the twilight minutes of the day.
- Target Crazy
Just a beginner level rangefinder with basic functionality only.

This does not make it ultra-waterproof to survive a deep submersion in a lake. It can work while dripping wet for outdoor enthusiasts. The display may become unreadable due to severe weather conditions.
- Rangefinder Lab
One major drawback of Halo XL450 is associated with low light. In the case of bad light on the course or out on the hunting trip, users often complain about feeling trouble while interpreting readings from its display.
- Sports and Outdoor Tips
The carrying case can sometimes have a bad odor
- The Big Deer
Measures ranges only up to 450 yards
- Sniper Country
