    I had a Leupold RXIV 1000yd rangefinder with the TBR but not the newer DNA mode. I had trouble with it last year ranging in very cold weather past 400yds on game. I always had trouble past 450-500yds on game with it. I did some saving and trading and just got a Leica rangefinding binocular the Geovid HD-B. So far myself and everyone I've showed it to just says wow. I have ranged deer out to 900yds and a hunting shack at 2040. Everything I've ranged has given instant readings. Using the Leupold side by side I couldn't read a brick silo at 730yds with the Leupold and the Leica easily ranged it instantly. It is extremely expensive but combines very good binoculars with one of the best rangefinders on the market. I would definitely recommend it as of now. I just got it so haven't had it in cold weather yet.

    The only rangefinder I have ever been happy with is the Leica I have now. I wouldnt even consider any other make.
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Nikon-Junk, Leupold-Junk!! I've had several of each and I'd rather not own a rangefinder. I've been running the Geovid HD-b bino's and love them. Before that I had a Zeiss 8x26 PRF and that was an awesome unit. I'm assuming the newer Leica handhelds are phenomenal as well!!

    I doubt you'll find better than a Leica CRF 1000-R Rangemaster demo unit from CameralandNY for $599 http://www.cameralandny.com/optics/site.pl?page=40535

    Wait, I take it back. How about a new one on eBay for $549? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Leica-Rangem...item3a925bfb0a. eBay also has a manufacturer's refurbished one for $469, not sure of warranty.
