Pocket-sized precision

The lightweight and compact pocket rangefinder. For professional wildlife monitoring, architecture, golf, walking or nature observation in general, laser rangefinding technology is a frequently undervalued tool, and yet it can prove a valuable addition to your equipment. You will no longer be dependent on estimates: instead you will know exactly how close "far away" really is.

Here you find the top features of the Victory Pocket Rangefinder monocular.

A compact companion

The smallest Rangefinder model in its compact monocular format rounds off your equipment perfectly.

LRF technology

The laser rangefinder allows you to measure distances in less than a second, with reliability and precision.

Comfortable operation

The operating buttons are arranged in such a way that they are easy to reach.

A compact companion

The smallest Rangefinder model in its compact monocular format complements your binoculars perfectly. Weighing only about 310 g it is an extremely lightweight but valuable companion for measuring distances when you are out on a field trip.

Laser rangefinding technology

The laser rangefinder enables you to measure distances within a second.  
In distinctly less than half a second from releasing the one-touch measuring button you will see with reliability and precision the exact distance to your target. It is possible to measure distances of up to 1200 metres. Even small objects such as soaring birds of prey can be measured with precision and repeat accuracy. Even in poor light conditions.

High-performance optics

The high-performance optics produce bright images and allow you to see even the finest of details. This is particularly important when mapping the nests of ground-breeding birds. Even over long distances and in twilight conditions you can still enjoy outstanding images. The Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating ensures high transmission; in other words, it lets plenty of light in. This elaborate lens coating gives you a bright and clear image even in poor light conditions.

Comfortable operation

The large additional button that operates the rangefinder is situated comfortably close to your index finger. This means that your finger doesn't get tired even during lengthy measuring sessions. The second button, the SET button, allows you to choose between three different displays. Using this one, you can decide whether you want the distance to be displayed in metres/centimetres or yards/inches. Naturally, the Victory PRF also offers important information for hunting, so you can use the SET button to activate or deactivate the BIS® and select the ballistic programme appropriate for the trajectory path.

Robust design

The laser system is fully integrated and always well protected, even in the face of severe shaking, dropping or rough transport. The Victory Pocket Rangefinder is waterproof and dustproof. Its rubber armour protects it from knocks and gives it a pleasingly firm hold.

Innovative lens coating

Enjoy fascinating image quality whatever the weather. Water simply rolls off the lens as if from a duck's back. This is due to the LotuTec® coating on the lens and eyepiece. The fact that water simply rolls off and no dirt can collect on the surface of the lenses means that you can spend less time cleaning and more time observing nature.

Victory 8x26 T* PRF

The compact laser rangefinder with its 8x magnification and 26 mm lens produces a bright image even at long distances. It is a solid companion, despite its light weight. The laser rangefinding technology makes it a valuable aid for estimating distances. Whether you are monitoring migratory birds and need to establish their flying height, you want to take the measurements of a building or you simply want to know how far away the next mountain peak is, the Victory PRF with its small format is always there to help you.

Questions & Answers


How far can I measure with the Victory Pocket Rangefinder?

The measurement of the Victory PRF is over a distance of 10 to 1,200 metres.


The eyecups on my Victory PRF are damaged. Can I replace them?

The eyecups cannot be completely replaced, but we can change the rubber covering at our premises. Please send the binoculars with a corresponding note to our customer service team.


Can I use a different battery?

Please use only type CR 2 lithium batteries. We recommend that you only use high-quality branded batteries. A new battery is sufficient for more than 2000 measurements at 20 °C.


What do the abbreviations mean?

Meaning of the abbreviations


Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses


Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour


ZEISS T* Multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility


ZEISS Multi-layer coating (multi coating)


P / P*
Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating


Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used


Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation


Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations


High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution


High Transmission = lenses by Schott with very good transmission properties.



Smart Focus = Conventional binoculars require the focusing wheel to be turned 2.5 times in order to switch from the close focus to the maximum observation distance. The VICTORY SF only requires the wheel to be turned 1.8 times.
