    Default Best Rangefinder for the money??

    Lost my bowhunting rangefinder last month, and now looking for new one. I don't want to spend a lot of money for new one. Is there anybody tried the HALO rangefinders? Is there another $ 100 worth of brand that has proven to be profitable?

    I’ve got a Leupold XR1000 or something like that that’s been good. Had a Bushnell but after getting soaked it was toast. EuroOptic had a sale on Ziess and Leica that was great prices a month ago.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    I’ve got a Halo and it works great. I found it new on eBay for around $65.

    Funny that the bushnell quit on you. I dropped my bushnell while hunting one day and found it two years later when I was turkey hunting. Still works to this day. No complaints but I also need to get another. This ones old as dirt and still works but it needs to be replaced before long I’m sure.

    The Sigs are legit. We use them in the long range matches on pretty small targets out to 1K yards plus. I think the doughnut is easier to aim than a cross hair. I’ve got a Vortex Ranger 1000 that works pretty well too. Its my hunting RF.

    I have a Redfield that is great.......but, they don't make it anymore. If you lived closer, I have a Bushnell I'd sell you.

    This was a cheap one. Not sure if it just had bad seals but it was full of water. Then again I tend to break stuff a lot. The Leupold has been great so far.

    I have a Nikon ID 3000 and don't have any complaints, I think it was around $160.

    I’ve got one of the cheap halo ones. Doesn’t always find the flag on the golf course but works fine for hunting when I’ve used it.

    I have a Nikon Prostaff 7, I think. It’s great. Does exactly what I expected it to.

    I've got a kilo1250 and can't get it to pickup a house past 634 yds or a field edge past 600. I will be calling them next week.

    The one I've used is mounted to a spotter on a tripod so it's stable and accurate as hell. We've use it to double check yardages at matches, because sometimes the ones they give are accurate sometimes they're not. It will hit stuff my Vortex and my buddy's Leica won't.

    I have a nice older leupold that I sent back for work, it got all buggy with lines in it. I bought a leupold pincaddie while waiting on that one. I like it.
