$49 if you’re not a prime member. 
 

I’ve been playing for 30 years and never owned one, but for $50 I’m giving this one a shot.

Let me know how the work out for u guys

 

I have a base model Nikon without slope i can compare it to as soon as it comes in.

 

Although i dont know how long this deal or coupon code is good for...so I would probably order it from Amazon and then return it if it turns out to suck

I’ve been wanting one for hunting just as much as golf. I’d like to know just how far out those pronghorns really are.

I bought one of these.

 

for the first 10 minutes I was confused as to why everything appeared tiny and upside down. Eventually I realized I was looking through the wrong end (I’m an idiot and I’ve never had a rangefinder)

 

Now that I’m looking through the correct hole, the thing seems to work quite well

 

its easy to aim and it gets the yardage quickly

 

ill Try it on the course on Tuesday. Thanks.

Got mine and the numbers are easy to read on the normal distance mode, but when you turn the slope mode on the readout starts showing extra sections of the numbers so that it is largely unreadable.  Of course, it was sitting out in my mailbox for half a day in 10 degree (F) weather, so I might just need to let it warm back up a little and try it again.

well, I now know my neighbors car across the street is 44 yards away, it's 112 yards to the first mailbox down the street and I've got to add 9 yds if I want to hit halfway up the telephone pole. 

 

If the numbers are accurate this thing is a solid bargain.  I had no trouble seeing the readout in either mode. And it has jolt! Have any of you guys got on the course with it yet?

I should have mine on the course by mid-April 🤣

yes I’ve used mine twice on the course and I really like it.

 

it seems to read similar yardages to my two friends who have Bushnells.

 

so far so good. We’ll see if it stands the test of time.

I love seeing budget rangefinders get good reviews. I think the prices for the name brand ones are silly. I got a tectectec for about $100 3 years ago. It's been great and only changed the battery twice.

 

Not sure about this one's batteries though. I'm no expert but 2 AAA seems odd compared to the CR2 that most others use.

I have a Bushnell, and I’d look favorably on a different battery system. The CR2 works until it doesn’t - no sense that it’s running out, just dies. And, if the screw in battery cover isn’t screwed in perfectly (using a quarter to turn it exactly 1/2 turn, assuming it was seated perfectly), it doesn’t work. Very annoying.

Its actually nice to have a common battery type that's easily replaced and available anywhere. CR123 and CR2 are like $10 each and hard to find sometimes.

I’ll take mine out to the football field tomorrow and try it out a little more and see about the things some of you are saying.

Still worked fine in regular mode, unreadable numbers in slope mode. Is it worth sending back or should I keep it for normal mode?

In non slope mode I need to press the button on whatever I want distance to. In slope mode when you press and hold it there isn't any issues locking onto the flag when the unit finds it. I'm keeping it, played with it at the range yesterday and the distances were spot on even if it took a couple times to get right.

I sent mine back to Amazon this week and requested a replacement. Maybe the next one will work!

Got my new one yesterday and it appears to work just fine.  My neighbors house is 19.7 yards away, with a slight downward slope that would play at 20.3 yards.
