    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.

    One of my friends has that one, I tried it and it was ok. but it doesn’t has ID does it?

    Yes the riflehunter does have ID technology. Also look thru it in different lighting conditions. If its sunny outside it is difficult to see thru most rangefinders. Not the riflehunter. Good luck.

    :D Thing with rangefinders is you get what you pay for…almost every bowhunter I know that…was thifty with a rangefinder got so frustrated with the low end rangefinders they end shelling out more money buying a decent one…
    So in the long run save yourself $220.00 :p

    I have to agree with Neil you get what you pay for. I only want to pay for my rangefinder ONCE. After much consideration I chose a Leica 1200. They are pricey but absolutely awesome in any light condition. Good luck though with any that you choose.

    My brother just recently bought a rangefinder and I helped him on the shopping… He ended up with the Nikon Archer’s Choice for 199.99 with the mail in rebate.

    He was eyeing the Bushnell Chuck Adams model but that one is only “water resistant” it is not waterproof like the Nikon.

    Good luck!

    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 [=}=]

    X2 I have a couple Leupold Rangefinders. Save a little longer, because like Lost Arrow said, you get what you pay for. [=}=]

    As has already been said, Nikons Archers Choice is $260.00 with a $60.00 mail in rebate off of that. I just got one at bass pro and really like it. Its waterproof and fogproof too.

    But it only goes out to 100 yards, right?

    I own an older Nikon 440 and it works for me, I know it doesn’t have arc but it gives me a prettygood idea on what pin to use. I bought it on ebay for $115 a couple of years ago.
