Re: Bushnell 1500 Elite - Bushnell 1500 Yardage Pro ???

I have had my Bushnell Elite 1500 for about 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have what appears to be a leak that suddenly occurred and is spreading splotches across the optics. Can't tell whether it's LCD or LED, but it's greenish-yellow in color and it is translucent. It was manufactured in July 2005. Laser rangefinding seems to work great though. Will send back and ask for further details on nature of the problem and solutions. Depending on Bushnell response, I may have to go with something else. Otherwise a great rangefinder for the price.

ipguy,

Let us know how they handle it. I bought the same rangefinder off of Jon's Optic Zone site early this summer. Mine has worked flawlessly, and I have nothing but good things to say about it, but knowing how Bushnells customer service responds would be great.

I will say in the one case that I have dealt with them they were very good. My friend had a relatively new Bushnell Legend 3-9x40 on an old Rem 760 that was in his house when it got flooded last September. The scope did not take it well, ended up full of water. He was very busy helping his family so my dad and I told him we'd take care of it. We called them and explained the situation and they said to ship it back with a letter of explanation. Within a week they shipped us a brand new one. Hopefully they will be as helpful with you. Good luck.

Carl
