Had the LRB 1500 Newcons. Not a good experience. Very happy with the Swaro 1500 though.

Re: Swarovski 1500 Laser Rangefinder and the Leica 1200

For who may be interested and on a limited budget, I looked at the Swarovski 1500, Leica 1200 and Bushnell Elite 1500, but only compared them in the store for Size, price and optics. Swarovski Optics was the best by far.
I searched the internet for pricing and decided to try the Elite 1500, and since there is a 30 return policy and the price was 340 to 399 compared to 599 or 850+. For the Leica and Swarovski.

With 1 day of testing in bright light of Arizona. I can laser a wall min of 6 yards, to 1072 yards for a bush pretty constantly, free hand to the bush. I was not able to laser a bush past that point free hand. I did not have any animals to laser for this test, but hope to do some more testing next time I go out and bring a tri-pod.
Also the Elite use's a simple 9 volt battery.
So far Iím happy with the Elite and will retire my Bushnell 800 pro. Any one interested in the 800 pro for less than half of new?
Will post more tests, as soon as I can.
