Leica 1600 CRF hands down. I have tested all the popular units and the Leica cant be beat for the price.

If you want to test drive one come on out and try my 1600 first. Then you will know if this is what you want before you spend the $$..

I found my Leica CRF1200 for $450 CAD used two years ago. Like brand new. If you look for a deal you will find it.
I have been able to get readings out to 1300 yards in perfect conditions.
