New rangefinder...

Ordered my fourth archery range finder. The first from the 80's is the type one had to make adjustment to line up two lines in order to get the distance. It worked just fine but took some time to use. The second one from the 90's worked great, but it is the size of a large cantaloupe.

My third one a Bushnell from early 2000's is in line with todays models and performed very well until this fall when it retired it's self. So I talked Santa and he is bring a new 1700 Bushnell for Christmas.

Don't buy a Leopold as no warranty on a range finder!!


My brother in law learned the hard way....they offered a $150 coupon to buy another that is not warranted......so I bought a vortex after hearing that...

I recently bought a pair of Sig Sauer Kilo3000 rangefinding binoculars. I got tired of carrying both binos and a rangefinder. They were expensive, but they are amazing!

Really? From the Leupold site:

Leupold electronic products which include rangefinders, thermal products, and other electronic devices are warrantied against defects in materials and workmanship for two-years from the date of purchase. If the product is found to be defective, Leupold & Stevens Inc. will repair or replace it free of charge, within that two-year period. Proof of purchase may be required to verify warranty.

I had one...a Coleman. Worked good, but more of a tool to pre-measure and mark spots. Not ideal for ranging actual game. As you said, they took too long.

My current range finder sounds like your third. Mine is still going strong.
