Rangefinder

what kind of rangefinder do you all have. I have a bushnell scout arc1000. I like it it has both rifle and archery modes and calculates both arrow and bullet drop. it has so far been good to me.

bushnell scout, I still have one of the first ones where you had to dial it up and the yellow picture would align with the clear one.

I have had a Bushnell Yard

I have had a Bushnell Yard Pro..can't even remember the model number had it so long.  It has never let me down, so I have not had any reason to up grade.  Even though I do like the new Nikon and Bushnells.

My first range finder was a

My first range finder was a bushnell yardage pro 600. I had it for probably 10 years and worked perfectely. I was looking for a longer range finder when I came across the zeiss 8x26 prf. The optics are night and day compared to my old bushnell and the new leupold range finders that I compared them too. The zeiss is very small, compact, and easy to use. It's worth checking out if your in the market for a new range finder.

I had the cheapest leupold

I had the cheapest leupold rangefinder for 3 or 4 years.  It worked pretty well for me, but last year I dropped it out of my stand and it quit working.  I just bought the nikon archers choice this summer and so far I'm really happy with it.  I'm not much of a rifle hunter so the 100 yard max. distance isn't an issue for me.
