    Haven't tried that one but can vouch for this one when it comes back. Under $200 nzd and ranges out to 800m

    Cheers. I found it. I will pass it on to him.

    Coincidently, $299 is about what I paid for my Nikko Stirling one and it works well. Got it from Smiths city a year or so back (20% off sale so got it for around $230 from memory) But Nikko should be available from anyone who sells Ridgeline, Howa, or Buffalo river....

    Fark that spend 200 more and get a yukon. They'll go toe to toe with the Leica and won't fall short by much at all.

    If their Bino's are anything to go by, this is good advice. My Nikko works very well, but my Yukon Bino's are great.

    I have a budget no-brand rangefinder that I bought second hand a couple of years ago. It ranges reliably enough, 800+ in good conditions and pretty consistent with respected brands. But the optics are terrible, compared to my binos or scopes its like looking into a muddy pond.

    I might spend a bit more on a Yukon at some stage, they seem well regarded.
