    the OO ones are horrid, all the wiring is held in place be sellotape (yes really its sellotape) eventually it lets go and the wiring gets unsecured or the adhesive absorbs water and becomes conductive

    I was in the same situation looking for a cheap rangefinder with tbr. Ended up buying a sndway 1000 after reading the reviews about them on the forum. $130 to my door off aliexpress. ranged it out to 1170 yards the other day. Took 2 weeks to get here but its an option for you
    Heres the link to the reviews:
