Nikon Monarch 1200 or Bushnell Elite 1500 ARC

Postby Swiler on Sun Apr 29, 2007 7:12 pm

I'm interested in purchasing a rangefinder to be used for hunting and golf. I'm looking at the Nikon Monarch 1200 or the Bushnell elite 1500 ARC. In your opinion, which is the better product in terms of use, build quality and features? The difference in price isn't an issue but it would help if you could tell me which product is better or recommend another unit.

Appreciate your input.

Really no significant difference between these two as far as I'm concerned. Both represent each company's best product and both are very close as far as features and quality.

I prefer the handling on the Nikon and like the clear and easy to read display, but the Elite has the rainguard coating and a longer 2 year warranty.
