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.

Re: Laser Range Finder Suggestion

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
