    I've used one for 5 or 6yrs woodchuck hunting.
    Completely happy with it for the money.

    Might get a Geovid next, as I'd love binocular view

    I had one for a couple years and loved it. It WILL range 1200 yds. and it's clear and compact. I would still have it but I thought I lost it at hunting camp and went and bought a Swaro 1500 (THEN I FOUND THE LEICA THE NEXT DAY) ..Rich

    I have a 1200 CRF now but have owned the previous 1200 LRF too. I thought they both did a great job for the price. Definatly the best bang for the buck. And fast too.

    Agree best bang for the buck. It is the first rangefinder I have been able to get accurate readings on the tundra caribou hunting.
