    I just picked up a Bushnell legend arc 1200 on sale for $290(black) to replace my very abused older style bushnell legend. For the money the bushnells have always worked well for me. This style will switch from bow to rifle mode. Also has pre calibrated modes for certian rifle calibers and velocities and calculate hold over for that bullet drop. Haven't got to use this feature yet but could be cool. Was out today ranging deer sized objects at a little over 700 seemed after that it was a little more finiky. I most like the feature to size ratio on this one. Just right for bow hunting (my primary use) and has some range for some decently long rifle hunting.

    I have a zeiss victory prf. I really like it. I have ranged cattle at 1350 yards with it. The only complaint that I have is it's size. I wish it was a little more compact.

    i purchased a Leupold RX600 from Cabelas on sale for like 175 or something like that. I don't know if it has all the bells and whistles that you want in yours but it works great for me. I don't think its totally accurate to the 600 yard range its rated for but i know for sure its good up to 400 which is the max i would shoot with my equipment.

    Bow or Rifle? For bow, I just replaced my old Leica 700... It was an AWESOME rangefinder but the new Leupold RX-1000i TBR with DNA Digital Laser Rangefinder is among the best in class! Good red digital readout, clear optics and angle compensates to 125 yards... The rangefinder is definitely the best available right now IMO... I know there's always something new coming out but Leupold hit a homerun with this one so far!

    The new (2011-2012) high end Leupolds are getting good reviews, but I am shy about them due to the terrible experiences many people had with the original Leupold RX series.

    Graylight, keep us posted on its performance!

    I had one of the orginal RX series rangfinders and hated it. Once I made it home for my hunting trip it was going back to Leupold to get worked over but lost it instead. I am intersted on how the new models work.

    I used it in Colorado on my high country hunt, California during the Blacktail season and just recently during my Southern Az desert Muley hunts... It worked flawlessly... I love the darned thing! I used the Leica 700 for years, which realistically, I believe to be the only other RF I liked before this one! Just my input for what it's worth!

    How are the newer model Leupolds in bright snow conditions? My current RX model works flawlessly in early bow season, but sucks the round thingys on the back end of a donkey when snow is on the ground.

    I own the RX1000 model. It MIGHT range 200 yards in snow, and hits 1000 to 1200 fairly easy on dry summer conditions.
    I hunt because......

    I have a Lieca CRF 1200 and I got it to read out to 1321 yards! I have been very impressed with it. Only range finder I have seen that will read out to 1000 yards every time
