First off, let me say that I don’t have very much experience with laser range finders. This is actually the first one I’ve ever owned. So my perspective is simply a functional one from an everyman’s bow hunter.
Ease of use: Point and shoot, doesn’t get any easier than that. It has a brush feature, which allows you to range an object even though there may be brush or objects in your line of sight. This is great for stand hunters who will always inadvertently have some sort of twig or branch in the foreground.
Accuracy: So far it’s been spot on
Modes: Rifle (with ballistics calibration), and Bow, which gives you your true horizontal distance.
One thing that really bothers me, however is the lack of an illuminated display and reticle! Sometimes it can be very difficult to see your range in daylight, let alone in dim light settings! A dark shaded backdrop can also make these numbers hard to read. Take a look at the shots below.
Overall at 220$ on sale, this seems to be a great intermediate level range finder for your average bow hunter. It’s waterproof, fog proof, and it can serve dual roles for the rifleman, bow hunter and outdoorsman.
