Bushnell vs. Nikon vs. Leupold

Postby Aznealz on Fri Sep 12, 2008 5:27 pm

Hey folks-

What are your thoughts on these three rangefinders: Bushnell Scout 1000 ARC, Nikon RifleHunter 550 w/ID, and Leupold RX-II w/TBR? They are all in the same price ballpark. My questions would be minimum & maximum yardage detection, glass quality, ease of operation, durability and any other useful info for me to make a purchase decision. The winner will be used predominately for archery and rifle hunting in both treestand and steep mountain conditions. Thanks!

Optically, all of these are in the same general arena. The Bushnell will have the greatest range, and the Bushnell and Nikon are tied for ease of use. The Leupold has the longest learning curve, especially for someone who is not gadget oriented. If you're good with gadgets, they will all work very well for you.
Best regards,

Ryan W.
