Please help w/ some recommendations!
All but a couple lazers will dissapoint you at some point and under certain conditions.
That would include the combo units. I know a guy who has both the Bushnell and
the swarovski combo units. they both work equaly well for ranging. The swaro is
hands down better as for the binnoc part. I know another guy with the combo swaro
who is very dissapointed with the ranging especially beyond 1000 yds. I have a
swaro rangefinder that is fine to about 800. Beyond that it will occaissionaly dissapoint me.
Id reccomend you buy a Leica rangefinder and a good set of binnocs. First off you will be using the binnocs far more than the rangefinder.
