After more than 8 years in production, it is time to say goodbye to the 7th generation of the Leica DISTO™ D2. At the time of its 2008 launch, the D2 was revolutionary in its compact size, light weight and great value. Many called it the best laser distance meter they ever used. Many still do.

We visited Steven Kendall of Rigstar to find out how he uses his DISTO D810 Touch to lay out bridle systems for the rigging industry. Steve teaches a wide range of professionals in theatrical and industrial rigging at his shop in Northampton, Massachusetts. Steve has been working in the rigging industry since the wild west days of the 1970's. His tours with bands like Heart, Stix, Jethro Tull, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more, taught him everything you'd ever want to know about lifting gear, people and the occasional piano or dirt bike.

What is measuring accuracy?

Measuring accuracy is specified in accordance with ISO-recommendation ISO/R 1938-1971, with a statistical safety of 95% (2s, i.e. two-fold standard deviation). Typical measuring accuracy is based on average measuring conditions within the specified measurement range. It is not valid for special application functions and calculations, such as Pythagoras and is not valid in tracking mode (continuous tracking).

I understand the logic of the name "laser tape". But to call these tools a "laser tape" is a massive understatement. Read on and you'll understand what I mean.
