    First of all I apologize if this has been covered to any extent before but i haven't seen it yet. I have the opportunity to purchase either a Swarovski Laser Guide or a Leica CRF 1600 for about the same price ($10 difference). Given that, which range finder would you recommend and why? I just want to be sure of myself before I go and spend $800 on a unit I'm not going to be completely satisfied with. Thanks for your insight on this.

    both probably have equal ranging capabilities. The leicas laser is rectangular in shape, has the same with as the swaro but 1/4 as tall. I went with the swaro because i am not a fan of the vertical held rangefinder and the swaro has a tripod mount on it which makes the difference of being able to range 400 yards max to 1900 yards max.
