You can purchase the Nikon ProStaff 550 through Amazon.com, in the base black version (called the Prostaff 3) or in the camouflage Team Realtree version.

Bottom Line Up Front: The Bushnell Legend 1200 Arc Rangefinder is a full-featured unit that attempts to meet the needs of all hunters. And though it wasn’t unanimous, users seem to agree.

It takes a bit to set up and use with so many features, but as it gets more of a track record, Bushnell may just have a winner on their hands.

 

The Legend 1200 is available in both camo and black at Amazon.com

Bottom Line Up Front: The Bushnell Yardage Pro Sport 450 may only give 70% of the functionality of higher-end models but it only costs about 50%.

Spending just a little more will get you a good bit more function, but if around $150 is all you have and you don’t need over 200 yard range or angle compensation, this would be a more than adequate choice.

Bottom Line Up Front: The Nikon RifleHunter 550 may offer the best combination of performance, price, and features around, certainly at its price point.

Whether you’re bow hunting, rifle hunting, or ESPECIALLY if you need a range finder that does many things well, this is the one to get.

 

You can purchase the Nikon RifleHunter 550 through Amazon.com in the Realtree camouflage version or, for a slightly lower price, the solid brown version.
