LaserLine's direct reading optical rods are the number one seller in the USA, and there’s a reason — tremendous quality. Tough, lightweight, and versatile, they bear the true test of quality in the field, and hold up exceptionally well.
Optical rods are designed to be used with optical instruments, therefore, they do not have a special rail for a laser detector. All tape faces have large scales and are easy to read at a distance when using an optical instrument.
