Rangefinders

I am looking at possibly buying a range finder. I am looking really hard at he Leupold RX-1000 TBR.
I am sure that some of you have purchased one of these. Is this ranngefinder worth the $400.00 price tag it has, and does it give the true ballistic range as it says? Would I be better off saving some more cash and buying the Leica 1200?

Re: Rangefinders

Save for the Leica, have yet to hear of anybody being satisfied with the Leupold range finders.

Re: Rangefinders

Thank-you very much appreciate the help. I will steer clear of the Leupold, and save for either the Leica or a Zeiss. I am one that has a hard time making a decision on optics, especially when I get heat from the wife for buying or even talking about buying new optics. I just want to make sure I get the most for my purchase, becuase like alot of you I have budget for my hunting supplies.

Re: Rangefinders

How about "rangefinder-binoculars" ?

Lieca, Zeiss and others make them. Price can run from $600 to over $3000. Some have a rangefinder grid versus a digital number.

What are your thoughts,

Re: Rangefinders

I would stay away from leupold rangefinders, I had one and it was worthless. I just bought a new zeiss PRF Victory and it seems better than the leica 1200 I had.

Re: Rangefinders

I bought a Lieca 1200 LRC for $500 from gr8fuldoug on this sight. That's only $100 more than what your going to spend on the Leupold. Gr8fuldoug is from one of the sites sponsers, Camera Land.
The other place to look into is SWFA's Samplelist.com. I just checked Samplelist for a leica 1200 and their out but they have them all the time.
