Leupold Golf Rangefinders under a 2-Year Warranty Now?

In shopping for a new laser rangefinder, I noticed that a bunch of people swear by Leupold because of their "lifetime warranty", and having had older models that malfunctioned, replaced with new ones.



I recently checked their website and noticed that it now says rangefinders are under a 2-year warranty.

Does anyone know if Leupold changed their policy? Are golf rangefinders now only covered by a 2-year period? If so, this was a huge selling point for me, and now I am considering other brands.

    If you scroll down that page, there are reviews that indicate that it was 2 only for “electronic” devices. Looks like some thought it was lifetime when it wasn’t. Why not call Leupold and confirm it was or a recent change.

    Yeah 2-year warranty on the rangefinders. I wonder if it was a recent change. In any case, I'm now looking at other brands.

    Nikon offers 5 year warranties. That was the last brand I bought.

    I have [background=rgb(247, 247, 247)]Leupold, why would you look for different? You think they'll not cover you? Like they have been for so many years. Your just a cheap person, wanting free stuff.[/background]

    I sent my Leupold Gx-3i back with a faded screen this month. They just offered 60% off any new purchase from their super inflated MSRP prices. Save a couple $'s off buying one off the street, but not that much when trying to replace an already expensive one.

    I sent back a GX-2i2 that was about 3 years old. It wasn't picking up flags consistently and hardly ever locking on to prisms. About 7 days after sending it off I received a brand new GX-2i3. I'm not sure what the warranty was on the old unit but the new rangefinder states 2 years. BTW the 2i3 is smaller and seems to read distances a little faster.

    I too sent back my GX-4 for giving incorrect yardages. they sent me a new one without worry. never asked about when I purchased it or not. sent in old model, received a new one after about about 10days. excellent email and phone communication. I would not buy another rangefinder after this. they are a bit expensive, but they are the best in my opinion and experience when it failed to work as expected.
