Swarovski vs. Leica?

First of all I apologize if this has been covered to any extent before but i haven't seen it yet. I have the opportunity to purchase either a Swarovski Laser Guide or a Leica CRF 1600 for about the same price ($10 difference). Given that, which range finder would you recommend and why? I just want to be sure of myself before I go and spend $800 on a unit I'm not going to be completely satisfied with. Thanks for your insight on this.

Re: Swarovski vs. Leica?

both probably have equal ranging capabilities. The leicas laser is rectangular in shape, has the same with as the swaro but 1/4 as tall. I went with the swaro because i am not a fan of the vertical held rangefinder and the swaro has a tripod mount on it which makes the difference of being able to range 400 yards max to 1900 yards max.
