Need new rangefinder

My Nikon Rangefinder just quit reading yardages. tried new battery, I guess it's dead. I may look into one with the angle compensation. What finders can anyone suggest either with or without the ARC.

Re: Need new rangefinder

Is your a Nikon 440? I have one that has gone through torture and still works great. Most used accessory I own.

Ive been looking at the Aculon and the prostaff 3i butleaning toward the Aculon cause not sure i want the bells and whistles.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same

Yes it is the 440. It has been used a lot with no issues. I'm just not sure why it quit working but I guess I don't need to know.

Re: Need new rangefinder

If you do any longer range stuff I love my Monarch 1200 thus far...


The only range finder I've tried that comes close to its advertised range...I've hit a wooden barn just shy of 1000 yards with no trouble. Haven't been able to stretch beyond that yet.

If you JUST bow hunting or don't shoot far I'd look elsewhere..the added cost and slightly bigger size isn't worth it...

Haven't tried a Leicia...but the other brands I've tried and end up with Nikon's..had a riflehunter 550 before this one..it worked nicely as well..

Re: Need new rangefinder

I had the Bushnell bow hunter chuck Adams edition and loved the thing. It went through the washer and dryer once and still worked like a charm. When it went through the second time last year it didn't fair as well so I ended up getting the Bushnell scout dx 1000 with arc. It was pretty much the only one i could find in a pinch and wasn't cheap. The only thing I don't like about it is it has a rubberized housing and doesn't slip in and out of your pockets very well. That also means it's less likely to slip out of your hand in the treestand though so it goes both ways.

Second on the vortex ranger. Unlimited lifetime warranty and extremely well made. Red lcd display is a great feature to boot
