Bushnell vs Leupold

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I recently purchased the latest Leupold rangefinder (GX 4) and have used it a few times this winter.  I do not have the steadiest of hands and have had issues getting consistent yardages outside of 150yds.  I noticed that the Bushnell's have the flag lock of which is supposed to search for the flag and let you know when it is locked in.  Does anyone have any experience with these and are they easier to use than the GX4?

 

If it is I would be interested in selling the GX4 and getting a Bushnell.

The Leupold has the same exact feature. I prefer the Leupold because I think the optics (the light inside, the graphics, etc.) are nicer, the heft and weight is better, I like the battery life, and it's always worked perfectly well.

 

What are you aiming at and how are you standing when you aim?

I have tried aiming at the center of the stick, the flag, and the ground at the base of the flag.  I am doing my best to stand squared up to the flag. 

 

My guess is everyone's hand shakes a bit when trying to aim it?

They take a little getting used to, try using the scan feature.  I will give you readings of what ever it is hitting.  The flag, then the background.
