Best laser rangefinder

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. Been toying with idea of laser rangefinder and gps watch and decided for similar money a laser rangefinder would be best!!!!
Problem I've got now is picking between;
Nikon coolshot
Bushnell
Or any others people can suggest!!

You won't go wrong with any from a top manufacturer.

I use a Leupold and 2 of my buddies use Bushnells. All are accurate, easy to use, and about the same price. If you look for an older model, like my GX-1, you can probably find one at a bit of a discount.

I'd recommend staying away from any models that compensate for slope. They're not allowed for tournament use even if the committee allows the use of distance measuring devices in the tournament.

BTW, you're gonna LOVE having a rangefinder!

Was gonna say the same, any Leupold or Bushnell is gonna be good, but avoid the slopey ones! (The even numbered Leupolds, for one). I have the same one as David and am very happy with it (check my review) and a friend has Bushnell v3 which he loves as well.

Newer version of the gx1. I don't know the specific differences. No slope and tournament legal
