long range aids

Hi to everyone,
Some more questions.What is the best range finder? what is the best value for money range finder to 1000 yards?
What do you think of the kestrel 2500?
What is the best value for money pda?
Can you buy a good range finder or kestrel on ebay?
All these questions about value for money are because of Aussie dollar exchange rate.
Hope you can help.
Regards
hjl

    Ive looked into it mate, no matter which way you go about it your gonna pay over $600 Australian for a good LRF like the Bushnell 1500 ELITE (which are great value for money).

    cheers

    Heres a link for a site that sells them cheaper (+postage and handling) than you can buy them in Aust: http://theopticzone.com/detail.aspx?ID=3241

    7STW is some serious fire power, paired with a range finder and a good scope you should be able to knock over the old pig and roo along long way away.

    No but have spotted (used one) for a friend and found it to be a great unit.
    I will be getting one this year if the funds allow.
