i'm thinking about a 2000 model. they cost about 475. some have pulled readings of 2800 with them. to me this would be the exception rather than the rule. most get readings out to 2k with them but the target is everything.the Swarovski seems to have the best reputation for something to go 1200-1700 with 2k happening in good conditions. they cost about 900. if you want one to go to 2k in about every scenario, the Vectronics would be the best. very small, rated to 2500. it goes for about 3k.
these range finders are like most things. as the distance gets greater, the cost goes up exponentially!
