Laser Range Finder Suggestion

I somehow lost my range finder from my last hunting trip. Now I'm looking for a new range finder. For all your LRH enthusiasts, what do you recommend a good one that's up to 1500 yards, and not going to break my pocket?

    A tape measure.

    Depending on how much you want to spend, it's hard to beat the Swaro.

    Well it wont get 1500 for ya but I love my Leica 1200. It will range a big flat object out to 1450, and little stuff out to its 1200 range with no probelms.

    My favorite is the Leica geovid bino combo, but thats one set of optics you do not want to lose in the woods! $$$

    Next is the leica 1200. The swaro has a little performance edge, but I like the Leica display better, its cheaper, & for most of what I'm interested in doing (hunting <1000 yards, 90% under 800 yards) it works good. Another aspect is that in a few years the market will have small, dependable, & affordable 2000 yard finders, so spending a bunch of $$ on something that you will want to replace as technology leapfrogs may not be appealing.

    I have been using my Leica 1200 LRF for years and I love it! I have been told the new models are even better. You might find a used one in good condition if a new one doesn't fit in the budget. NJS
