I would like to get a new range finder for the upcoming season. I am looking for some good recommendations on models that will work well in the field. i dont want or need the most expensive and dont want the least either. Just one with good quality and easy to use.

Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated...

Can't go wrong with the Leica LRF900 with scan capabilities. It's one of the better rangefinders but there are a couple that are better. It usually runs $500 though.

I have the bushnell compact 600 and the scout. The scout is so small, I love it! Both work great, but the scout is so much smaller it will help with the bulk while hiking around

I've used the Leica, various Bushnells....never tried the Nikon's though.

I got a Opti-Logic 120 on a trade here on AT last year and I prefer that to any that I've seen so far.

Middle of the road pricing, very durable and extremely easy to use.

I prefer this one because the eyepice has NO magnafication. The Bushnell and Leicas I saw I had a harder time finding the targets with the lenses in them. The Opti Logic is a lot quicker and easier to handle and use becasue of this I think.

Only CON I found was that the display is on the outside of the unit as an LCD opposed to being diplayed in the eyepiece but this has the PRO of being very easily read if your eyesight isn't the greatest.

I love mine and if it breaks I'll buy another.

Nikon 440, nice small size to fit in your pocket and great Nikon optics. I checked mine with a surveyors tape and it was right on the money.
