I'm curious as to what is the best bang for your buckrangerfinder. I will be using this only for archery and do not need one that goes out to 1000yrds. Any input would greatly be apprieciated. Thanks

I got into this mode recently. My Leica LRF works fine for long range rifle shooting, but doesn't give accurate readings at bow ranges - generally reads a couple of yards less than the actual distance. After a bunch of research, I bought the Bushnell Scout. It is very light and compact; and agrees with the steel tape at distances out to 70 yards.
