    Hawke have brought out quite a nice RF the LRF 900. Costs about 180. You can Google it, I think it comes from Deben

    Hi James,

    You can get a Bushnell Yardage Pro for around 250 Maybe you can find the unit at a better price if you shop around.

    My first rangefinder was a Bushnell Yardage Pro (back in 2004) and I was very happy with it. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, although I haven't tried any of their recent models.

    James. I have an excellent second hand Leica that I bought from an SD member for 270. Keep an eye open for second hand top brands on here as several members have been selling them to upgrade to range finder binoculars.

    The yardage pro will range trees and good big solid object just fine. However, if you want to range the actual deer you will find it limited at anything above normal shooting ranges. Once I bought a Leupold the bushnell got chucked in a drawer awaiting my son getting started on air rifles. I wouldn't sell it as I know that the new owner would not be happy with his purchase and that would reflect badly on me!
    For centrefire users I would definitely get a good second hand quality make to a cheap brand new one that will not cut the mustard which applies to all optics I guess?
