    I'm sorry for bringing this up again but it seems that I have been a good boy this year and might be getting a range finder for XMAS /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif anyway I am wanting a fairly good one but cant afford swarvo. Question is

    1 Bushnell Elite 1500 ARC
    I am leaning toward this one because it has the ARC
    feature and as I understand it the Elite model is their
    finest, but I have a Yardage Pro 1000 and it is
    junk /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif of course I found it under a tree in the
    mountains 3 years ago, maybe thats why it was there
    2 Nikon 1200
    No arc feature but seem to better than the bushnell
    1500 at distances further than 800 yards

    Is the arc feature that nice to have at longer yardages and is the 1500 a good quality range finder????

    elkstalker, the ARC feature only goes to 600 yards. For my groundhog hunting that's something I don't need.
    Also had the Bushie Yardage Pro 1000 and the Elite 1500 is a better unit.
    I posted some info about the Leica 1200Scan and the Elite 1500 (non-ARC) laser aways back at this link: http://longrangehunting.com/ubbthreads/s...true#Post105872
    My last post in that thread will give you some info.
    If you can, ask the store salesman to bring the Nikon, Leica and Bushie outside the store to make range comparisons. If the store won't do that for you, find another store. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
