Laser rangefinders are no different with price going up with increases in quality. There is also a noticeable difference between the low quality and high quality, and with laser rangefinders you definitely get what you pay for. That is why it is important to buy the best laser rangefinder that you can afford so there are no regrets.

They are commonly used to scout or reconnaissance an area, find military targets and aid soldiers and other active duty personnel during missions. However, militaristic rangefinders are often more sophisticated than those used in the consumer market, and they’re often combined with computers and other military technology.

You want to purchase the rangefinder with the most value for your money - more useful features at a reasonable price coupled with durability.

Hunters can use electronic rangefinders to calculate shot distance to deer, elk or other game. Golfers use rangefinders to determine the distance to the golf ball, which can help them select a club. Hikers and mountain climbers use laser rangefinders to map the best route.

What type do I need, do I need a GPS Rangefinder or a Laser Rangefinder, and maybe it should be an Optical Rangefinder. After you figure out the type you want, now you have to figure out what brand. Should I get Bushnell or Nikon, should it be Leupold or one of the many other brands? Oh yeah I need to know what features they have and do I need them and in some cases are they even legal to use on the golf course. Or maybe this rangefinder is for hunting or hiking and needs to be more accurate. Let’s first take a quick look at the type of rangefinder you may need. For golf and hunting you can use either a GPS Rangefinder or Laser Rangefinder. Both will help your game. GPS Rangefinder have mapping abilities that give you distances to various places on a golf course while the Laser Rangefinders tend to be more accurate. For hunting that increased accuracy may mean the difference between success and failure.

Last, it should be noted that all laser rangefinders feature a reticle (the crosshair or other type of aiming point you see when looking through your rangefinder). However, many rangefinders use LCD readouts with reticles that appear as black lines that you superimpose over the target you want to range but, this type of reticle if often difficult to distinguish against a dark background or in low light conditions. Therefore, other rangefinders have illuminated, LED, reticles as well. However, even though the brightness of the LEDs is adjustable (sometimes automatically), in bright conditions, it can be overwhelmed by the ambient light and thus it cannot be seen even at the highest settings and yet, in the evening when your eyes are accustomed to the lower light levels, the reticle is often so bright that it impairt your night vision even when set to the lowest settings. Also, this same issue pertains to the other information displayed on your screen such as yardage numbers and modes. Therefore, the best option is to choose a rangefinder with a backlight screen which gives you the capability to view your information in all light conditions.

They had to do more guessing and prediction in order to trap their prey and have food for their family. Today many devices can make hunting easier. Rangefinders for hunting allow you to know exactly where you stand in relation to the animal you are trying to snag. Knowing the distance between you and your prey lets you know when you can go in for the kill. When it comes to hunting rangefinders, not all of them are created equal. You must know what you are looking for when you purchase this tool. Having a rangefinder on hand when you venture into the woods helps give you an advantage over your prey, and being equipped with the right type of gadget will make it easier to get your kill.

These are costs necessary to keep the rangefinder in useful condition including the easy availability of maps about the golf courses in your area. Your considerations will include the features in each type of rangefinder. As you probably know by now, there are two basic types - lasers and global positioning system (GPS).

However, it is important to be aware that there are several different types of laser range finders on the market today designed for different purposes such as hunting, golfing, surveying, and forestry. Thus, as a bow hunter, you should make certain to choose a model that is specifically designed for archery. For instance, Leupold, Nikon, and Bushnell all produce archery specific models of laser rangefinders in a wide range of prices. Also, when choosing a laser rangefinder, you should be aware that they have different "priority" mode functions for different purposes. For instance, some rangefinders read the first object in their line of sight (called First Priority Mode) whereas, others ignore the first object and range past it to the object behind it (called Second Priority Mode). Therefore, rangefinders that range objects in First Priority Mode are particularly useful when you have an unobstructed view of the target but, rangefinders that operate in Second Priority Mode are of far more use when you have intervening brush and trees between you and your target. Furthermore, it should be noted that in addition to operating in either First Priority Mode or Second Priority Mode, many laser rangefinders are available with additional modes such as Automatic Range Compensation (ARC) or Horizontal Mode and San Mode. In fact, the ARC or Horizontal Mode is particularly useful when hunting in steep terrain because it automatically calculates the correct distance to a target at both inclining and declining angles and thus, it provides an accurate distance measurement even when aiming uphill or downhill. Whereas, Scan Mode, as the name implies, enables the hunter to range the distance of multiple objects by holding down the Scan button and then moving the rangefinder back and forth across the viewing area.

Also, you should be aware that all laser rangefinders operate by firing an invisible, tightly focused, beam of light at a given target and then measuring the time it takes for said beam of light to be reflected from the target and return to the rangefinder in order to calculate the distance to the target. Therefore, all laser rangefinders are adversely affected by hazy atmospheric conditions, glare, any objects between the rangefinder and the target and, objects that absorb the light beam instead of reflecting it. Consequently, even though rangefinders are designated as having a maximum distance at which that the particular unit will range a target, it should be noted that even though the manufacturer’s specifications may state a maximum distance of "X" number of yards for that particular unit, most will only range objects at that distance under optimal atmospheric conditions from highly reflective surfaces. However, when encountering atmospheric anomalies such as heat waves, glare, or even hazy conditions, any rangefinder’s ability to range objects over long distances will be reduced to between one half and one third of the stated maximum range! In addition, your ability to target and range objects may be further impaired by either poor optics or an overly bright reticle. Thus, some models of laser range finders feature a fixed amount of magnification but, it should be noted that while this feature does make your target appear larger in the view screen, it does not enable the rangefinder to measure accurately at longer ranges. Also, in addition to magnification, the better quality units feature multi-coated lenses that reduce glare and increase clarity which also helps you target your chosen quarry.
