I bought off Ebay in the past and have had good experiences. I found an 800 yd (Nc Star brand) Range Finder with adjustable reticle and 6X magnification. The retail was around $260 and these were at less than $100 with 2 hours left. The seller had 1512 items sold and a 100% rating. Seemed like a pretty good deal but I never heard of Nc Star range finders have any of you?

All those mentioned are in the $60-$100.00 range. I also agree that a buckle type is the way to go. Velcro can be a nightmare. Hope this helps.

i will say x10!!!!! tru fire is crap compared to the tru ball short n sweet!!! i absolutely love it!!! i will never buy another release other than this one!! and yes buckle is the way to go!!! i promise you will not be dissapointed with that release!!

take a look at the scott little goose with the buckle strap. as far as wrist releases go it's top choice for me. i prefer a "T" handle release for hunting so i dont have it hanging from my wrist all day. i have the pro diamond and love it!!!

I use a True Fire with the buckle.IMO they're better than the velcro strap versions.

Used to use a tru fire buckle, but after hunting in the rain it became unreliable... The shop I frequent did everything they could think of, but to no avail. Still wouldn't function smoothly.

They all shoot the Tru Ball Copperhead with velcro strap. I borrowed one for an outing of shooting. Bought two, one for me and one for my wife! I hunt in all weather conditions and neither one has failed us yet... My favorite realse yet, and they redesigned their strap last year so adjusting length is much easier.
