I have an older Nikon range finder that I love but I need a second one . I have been looking at them and there are so many choices. I could use a good recommendation. I understand that there are some that are better for the bow.

My next toy will be the Leica 1600.
No BS, no exaggerated measuring ability.
Great clear glass in low light.
You don't likely need this power for a Bow hunt though.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!

For bow you should have one that gives you the true ballistic range, so it always gives you the right pin to use, no matter what angle you shoot at.
I use one from Leupold and am very happy with that.

You should take a look at the new RX Fulldraw by Leupold

I'm a gear junkie. I've had leupold, bushnell and nikon all within the last 18 months. At the end of the day, my absolute favorites (that got left in Africa as part of a tip) were the Bushnell Scout 1000 with ARC. They are high quality, read to low yardage, compensate for angles and work everytime, all the time. To be honest, my least favorites have been the Leupolds. To each his own. It's really hard to get a bad laser rangefinder these days.Tom
I have several different Bushnells & I like them all. I think they make the best rangefinders for the money.
