Ranger Pace Counter Cord
Track traveled distance with the failproof Ranger Pacecounter™ counting cord. A reliably simple and essential tool for foot travel during night movements and daylight hikes.
How to Use your Ranger Pacecounter™:
Simple instructions: Determine your normal pace by measuring 100 meters on level ground and walking it several times to count your paces per 100 meters. Establish counts in various terrains- uphill, downhill etc. for determining distances.
Example: It takes 65 paces to cover 100 meters. Step out with your left foot and count each time your right foot touches the ground. After counting the paces, pull down a bead from the nine (9) bead group. This equals approximately 100 meters. For each additional 100 meters, pull another bead down. At 1,000 meter point, a bead is pulled from 4-bead group and the group of nine is reset. At 5,000 meters return all the beads to the top and start again.
Simple instructions are included. Videos are available on YouTube.
