The fact that it states 50 - 920 yds. makes it pretty much useless for bowhunting, doesn't it? My Nikon is good 11 - 400 yards and will not give a reading on anything under 11 yards. Something to think about.

Hey I'm all about saving a few $$.

I think (if it's reasonably reliable and accurate) it can be highly effective for spot stalkers, within limitations of course. Not so much for treesand hunters though. Keep us posted.

Probably not, here's a review I found by a golfer:

"I didn't notice this in the description, but it gauges distance by the height of the flag. It's not very accurate, and I wish I had spent the money on a true laser range finder. It's hard to hold steady while you're pushing the buttons to make the little line scroll up or down, and it takes a while to get it right."

Now if you hunt on golf courses..............

Thats exactly how it works. Golf flags are a standard height. This measures the height of flagstick and gives you a corresponding yardage. The further away, the shorter the flagstick. Now if deer were all the same height, it might work(not).

rangefinder

Must have a very intelligent chip to distinguish a flag pole from something else....say a fence post, a buck, or a bush. Right!! I think the user was doing something wrong. I think it may be good enough to spot check various objects and mark them before a prize buck comes along. I may just decide to try one out.

I have one for golf, heres what they look like. Wouldn't work to well for hunting though.


Now it makes sense of how it works. I guess they are only good for golfers. Thanks for all the info, guys. Guess I'll follow Tinks advice and check out the Nikon and other lazers.
