Range Finder

Hey, was just wondering if any of you know of a good brand for a range finder? Would love to hear an opinion.

Bushnell & Nikon are probably the most used

I know of a brand to NOT USE! Right gfdeputy!?!?! haha Stay away from the WGI Halo or any other range finder they have.

Personally I don't use a range finder, and probably never will. Property I hunt isn't really set up for needing one...
