I think I have finally convinced the boss (wife) that I need a rangefinder. I know some of you have extensive knowledge of rangefinders and have tried many or own many rangefinders. Cost is always an issue but so is quality and I want to make sure I get something that will suit my needs. I have listed a few options below that I considering. I will be using for hunting primarily. I am not sure if I want to go with the bino/rangefinder combo or just a straight rangefinder, and also the combo bino/rangefinder other than the Bushnell Fusion are very pricey.
I know this has been discussed before but any help/insight would be greatly appreciated.
The 1600 Leica is the best bang for the buck for under $1000 club. If you give some details on distances, terrain, and game you wish to use it on we can add more details. also what is the bugdet? You have RF's from $600 to a couple grand here.
I will be using the rangefinder in all kinds of different terrians from forest to rolling hills to wide open prairie. In a perfect world the Leica Geovid would be great but at $2300.00 that is a lot of $$$. I never listed a budget because i was going to wait and see what others had to say about the subject, because maybe I should be saving up for the higher end option.
Well then, I would take a serious look at the Vectronix PLRF05 also called the Terripin and the G7-BR2 from gunworks. Put those names in the search box upper right hand corner of this page. There is a lot of good info on them and they have some great options. They are pretty much in a different league than some on your list.
