Nikon 550 Laser Rangefinder Review
For 2008, the Nikon 440 Rangefinder has been split into three different variations: Prostaff/Realtree 550, RifleHunter 550 with ID, and the Archer's Choice with ID. Of the three variations, the base 550 Prostaff and Realtree models are most similar to the original 440 and retails at the same price ~$200.00 (Prostaff) and $220.00 (Realtree). The RifleHunter 550 (~$300) is identical to the base model but includes new Incline/Decline (ID) Technology which is Nikon's attempt at integrating ballistic ranging into their rangefinder line.
