Default new cheap rangefinders?

i was just wondering about peoples experiences with the latest rangefinders ive been seeing, Dicks has some that are $70 after rebate, things like that. I really dont care about one with the built in angle compensator, id just like to use it for flatland ranging to targets from 0 to maybe 400 yards.

I like the wild game innovations range finders. They will get the job that you want done and there not that expensive.

Default Redfield

I got a redfield range finder about 2 years ago and am very pleased. Leoupold bought the name and started producing product with all there equipment and an affordable pricetag to go with it.

Speaking of rangefinders....I would like some opinions on the Wildgame Halo Laser vs. the Simmons Hunting Rangefinder. Has anyone used either of these?

well I just bought my son the wildgame inovations one from dicks for 149.00 marked down from 199.00 no rebates or anything. I was looking at the one for 70 and to tell you the truth i felt good getting the better one. the one for 70 doesn't come with a battery and they dont sell them there. the one for 149 came with a battery and has the angle compensator on it. it might be a good one but for a few bucks more you can have a better one. Plus, i used a $20 coupon so it really only cost me 129.00
