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.

They’re manufactured by Opti-Logic, LaserTechnology, Newcon Optik, Nikon and Bushnell, just to name a few. As there are naturally many choices, you first need to know how an electronic rangefinder works to help you select the best one for your needs.

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.

As you line up to take your next shot you will find out the distance to the next bunker in a matter of seconds. It will also give you an accurate measure between you and the flag giving you a great advantage when you choose your clubs.

Since laser rangefinders bounce the laser off the target, and because all targets have a certain reflectivity, part of the distance the rangefinder calculates is based on this reflective nature of the target. In other words, "hard" objects like rocks and cliffs can be easily measured at greater distances than "soft" targets like deer or other wildlife.

Its most notable merits include its extreme accuracy to within a yard, two at most, as well its wide flexibility in working at every golf course. You can use the unit out of the box - no computer hookups, no membership fees and no subscription plans.

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.

The rangefinder will tell you how far you hit the ball and with time you will learn like a professional golfer what club to use under a particular set of circumstances. If you decide to add a rangefinder to your golf equipment I can promise you that will not be something you are going to regret - if your truly serious about improving your game. You will use it on most holes and you will most likely become addicted to your rangefinder, it will be like having your own - cheap version - of your personal caddy.

How do you think they choose their golf clubs with such accuracy as they hit a perfectly weighted ball straight on to the green? It is because they know exactly how far they are going to hit the ball with each of their clubs. They also know the golf course they are playing and how far it is from them to the next hazard (water, bunker, tree) or the green and make a club selection accordingly.

The distance to an objective is calculated by a rangefinder by the rebounding of a laser light beam off the object to be ranged. The time it takes for the laser light beam to reach the target and return is measured by a high speed digital clock. This time that commonly takes less than one second, is then computed by the rangefinder and displayed as a distance on the rangefinders build in screen.

When it comes to selecting one of the many laser rangefinders on the market, perhaps the first thing you want to look for is its potential range and application. Some rangefinders also use "modes" so that you can use it effectively in all kinds of terrain and weather. The potential range also varies as many are capable of accurately reporting the range of an object up to 2,000 or more yards. Whether you need one when you’re out golfing or are competing in an athletic, outdoor sport that allows you to use one, laser rangefinders can certainly be a huge advantage for any of these applications.
