    I’m thinking about getting a rangefinder for under $220

    which one would you suggest.

    Does that one have the ARC technology?

    Does anyone know if the Nikon one has the angle compensation feature thing?

    Yes the Bushnell does have ARC technology.
    But the Nikon does not have arc.
    Also leupold does make one for around $200, their rx-600 model.

    unless youre hunting extra steep, mountainous terrain the arc feature is meaningless. from a 20′ tree stand on gradual slopes the compensation wont be more than a couple yards anyway. Nikon, Bushnell and leupold all make outstanding products. :thumbup

    1 because my brother has that one so i want to get a different one then him

    2 it doesn’t have arc technology

    but I is a good rangefinder, I would recommend it for the price.

    Another vote for a Leupold. I know you said under $220, but you can do a search on eBay and I have found brand new in package RX-750′s w/ TBR for ~$260 shipped [=}=]

    You left out the Nikon riflehunter 550. Awesome rangefinder. You can pick them up new on eBay for 249. Picked mine up for 200 a few months back. This close to the season you won’t find it at that price. I know you said under 220 but for an extra 30 bucks you can’t go wrong.

    AS mentioned you left out the Nikon Riflehunter 550. Great rangefinder. You will have to shop around to get it for $220. Try ebay. There is always some going up on there. I got mine from there and couldn’t be happier with it.
