    Hey guys i have seen 2 different rangefinders on sale at dunhams and dicks, and i was wondering which brand is better. They both are about $120-$150. Bushnell or Nikon? Any input on those 2 brands or any other brands would be greatly appreciated. If you guys also want to tell me what features are most important in a rangefinder for bowhunting that would be cool.

    I have a bushnell yardage pro scout, works great, reliable, tuff and the factory battery has lasted for 3 years.

    Either one will serve you well.

    Nikon has a lot clearer optics than bushnell IMO. I use the Monarch 800. I am really growing on this range finder. It hasn’t failed me once. :thumbup :thumbup

    Just bought the Nikon Prostaff Laser 440. $180 dollars (20 bucks off) and got the “dont sweat it” warranty that covers me doing anything to it including running it over lol. it was 20 bucks for a year so i said whatever. I have been testing it out and i think it is sweet. Thanks for the input guys.

    I had a bushnell yardage pro 500 for 5 years and never even had to change the battery.

    That said I will never buy a bushnell product again, “upgraded” to the Quest last year and the glass developed moisture droplets inside the glass(which are suppose to be 100% waterproof optics) I sent them back and received a new pair in 2 weeks. Then 3 days before the NY bow season opening day the LCD on the 2nd pair craps out #-o Even if they sent me a new pair in a week that does me no good. Im bowhunting now and going on a trip in a few days.

    So a year after buying a the top of the line bushnell RF for 500$ I found myself at Gander MT shelling out 600$ more for a new rangfinder and binos(both leupold) to replace the bushnell quest.

    In short, I think the nikon was the right choice between the two.
