BreakdownThe Kestrel 5700 Ballistic Weather Meter with LiNK is a great addition to the long-distance shooters' arsenal. Built to be used at the range or the backcountry this weather meter can take a beating and keep fighting. Giving you real-time invaluable ballistic information at your fingertips. With an intuitive user interface, understanding all of the variables of long-distance shooting has never been easier.
This is the Kestrel without the full AB suite.
The wind meter etc all work fine. I had a chance to use the unit next to a 5700 Elite and found that the lack of the "Data Card" feature is disappointing, but easily worked around. Once your true'd numbers are inputted, you can flip through your DOPE easily enough, you just are not able to see a full card on the screen at once.
The other main feature of only being able to save three weapons will be something that I will have to deal with. I believe that you are also missing Muzzle Velocity in the Ballistics version. Again, all of this can be worked around, it just takes time.
Once your rifle data and bullet data are entered, the unit spits out the proper come ups and wind holds very reliably. I also liked the fact that if I decide later on that I really need (want) those extra features, I can purchase the software and upload it then.
This Kestrel does what I need it to do, and from having worked with similar Kestrel's before, I am confident in it's durability.

This unit is very easy to use and I was able to connect on a 700 yard shot with a 12MPH crosswind on the first trip out. With the current lack of ammo supplies this tool is a must. It eliminates a bunch of guess work.
The kestrel 5700 ballistics was exactly what I was looking for to simplify and upgrade my long range shooting gear. I don’t need to worry about getting my phone out and loading a ballistics app. Just pull out the kestrel, range target and dial. Very accurate and easy to use.
A must have in the back country for long range shots!
