I can only afford one at a time. Whichever you get make sure it adds and subtracts, way cool feature..IMHO
but get one... :icecream:



Good point about the add and subtract. Very valuable feature. The new Lite and Classic will be available in 2 to 3 weeks. It should be noted that the new Lite will not have the add/subtract/multiply feature. Leica has decided to make it a "laser tape measure". Point and shoot.

The new Classic is pretty slick. It has raised/enlarged buttons, built-in bubble level and 2x telescopic viewer. It also has "quick keys" for the pythagorean function, reference setting, and units of measurement.

As an appraiser, I would purchase the new Classic. It is a little more expensive but I believe that the add/subtract/multiply feature is a must. Also, the pythagorean function is very handy for straight walls where there aren't any targets.

I am selling the new Classic now. I will begin shipping them in a few weeks. If you want to see it, click on the following link......


I will have the new Lite info on the website in a few days.

I second the add and subtract feature!! The more I learn to use it the more important that becomes.
