#1)  Looking to replace my 440 rangefinder

Postby AndrewJoslin » Fri Feb 10, 2017 11:53 am

I dropped my Nikon 440 on a cement floor, it's now a useless small object. Looking to pick up a new rangefinder in the $200-$350 price range. Looked over the specs on a bunch of Nikon rangefinders, All kinds of interesting features for golfers and hunters but... any recommendations? I'm fine to use my clinometer, don't need the height calculations, hoping to equal the 440's woods performance.

Thx!

Suppose my Impulse 200 LR is a bit too big for you.  It's been replaced, but the design was still epic for tripod mounting. I know the new model out has a longer range, but find myself rarely shooting 1/3 the 200 LRs range. Considered selling it since I rarely use it. But as long as I don't let batteries sit and corrode, it could last a lifetime and is handy the few times I take it out for something.

I still have yet to hear of a rangefinder with the 440's brush penetration, aside from the top-dollar 200x. I paid under $300 on ebay for my Trupulse 200B, which is of course a really solid performer, if not quite as adept at reading through tiny gaps.
