    Does anyone have any experience with halo rangefinders? Just wondering if they are a viable option.

    Never herd of them. How much do they cost?

    halo rangefinders

    I took a look at these a few years back when I was broke as a joke and needed a RF. They are cheap, base models are like $100, I believe they do have an angle compensation model for like $150. Not sure what you are using it for (bow, rifle, just target practice) but if I were you and looking for a cheap rangefinder I would spend a little extra on reputable brands like Bushnell, Nikon, or Leupold. I ended up getting a Bushnell Chuck Adams for bow hunting and I like it a lot for what I paid. Really expensive glass is the popular call in this forum but sometimes you have to make due with a smaller budget, it's all about getting the most bang for your buck and budget.

    Don't have a lot to spend on rangefinder with the cost of tags and fuel. Just saw it advertised and was curious

    I would look around for a good deal on something used. If you buy it right you could get your money back for it if you want to upgrade later on.

    Just my $.02 but it sounds like the Halo is similar to the Simmons rangefinder (based on price) that I'm familiar with. The Simmons is limited in yards but will do the job on the short stuff. The durability is going to be more of an issue. I'd assume much of the same about the Halo, or other rangefinders in the same price range.

    The only thing would buy the Halo for is bow hunting. My 15 year old Bushnell is in about the same class as the halo. And its just gotten old is all. I'm lucky to get a 150 yard read.

    I had a redfield that was excellent quality for the price but just didn't get long enough yardage. If they made a longer yardage model I wouldn't hesitate to buy another
