which laser range finder?

Hello,
I would like to get a top notch LRF, to range easily to say 1400 yards... any ideas? I know the swaro is pretty good, but what about these models: Bushnell 1500, Newcon 1500/2500? I dont mind paying the price as long as the quality goes with it.
thanks for the help,
firefly

If you've got the cash, give me a call or shoot me an email. I don't think you'll find a better price!!!

The only way to go is the swaro, dont waste time with starting cheap and trying to make something work. spend the money right off the bat and get a swaro, it will work and you will be happy.

take it easy

Re: which laser range finder?

I tried to find the test post you spoke of.....no luck.

The Swaro's are certainly the stand alone in the rangfinder class but, I'm going to sell my 10X42 EL's and 3 rangfinders and pick up a set of the Leica 10X42 Geovid BFR w/LRF. I wish they had these when I bought my EL's. These are not only among the best in bino's (not a differance to my eye with EL's when I bought them) but and intergrated LFR!!!! One less thing to fumble with and carry. I'm hitting Cabela's within a few weeks and I'll be doing my business then. I'll still keep my STS80 HD though.
