Re: Need info on laser range finders
I'll second praise for the Elite 1500. I've been very happy with mine (esp. for the money). I have been able to get readings of over 700 in all the conditions I have tried and on most every type of target (often a shallow hill). If a large tree is availible to range, 1000 is about what I can expect out of it. I have been able to get ranges on houses and reflective signs consistantly at 1500+. I haven't used many other rangefinders for a direct comparison, but the only one I have heard that may give similar preformance for the money is the Nikon 1200. I do not, however, have any experience with it, either personally or second hand.
Good luck with your decision,
Empirical results rule!
