Re: Leupold RX-1000
When having to decide between the RX-1000 and the Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC, it was the longer warranty that swayed me toward the Scout 1000.
I have heard a disturbing report that the RX-1000 has a high failure rate. Probably the reason for the short 1-year warranty.
I don't like the Scout as well as far as using it goes, but it costs less and over a year later its still going strong.
Change the battery before calling your rangefinder bad. This is true of any sensitive electronic instrument.
