Product Description

Nikon PROSTAFF 3 Laser Rangefinder Nikon has expanded its line of legendary sport optics with the addition of the new PROSTAFF 3 Laser Rangefinder, a pocket-sized tool built for precision, ranging speed and consistency out to 550 yards. The PROSTAFF 3 is the perfect size and profile for any hunt. It is easy to use in the field with a high profile display, single button control and ergonomic frame. The PROSTAFF 3 measures ranges in either yards or meters and features an automatic power shutoff after the reading has been displayed for eight seconds. With bright, multicoated 6x optics, the PROSTAFF 3 offers high-resolution images in most lighting conditions. An easy-to-view uncluttered LCD display makes ranging fast and easy, even in bright sunlight. Its compact frame weighs just 6.3 ounces, fits comfortably in a pocket or pack and can be worn on a belt without interfering with your shot. The PROSTAFF 3 features an exit pupil of 3.5 mm for maximum brightness under less-than-ideal lighting conditions. The eyepiece is adjustable, with a range of +/- 4 diopters, has 18.2 mm eye relief and has a real angular field of view of 6 degrees. The waterproof/fogproof construction makes it the ideal choice for inclement weather.

I bought this product from Gander Mountain because they had it for about the same price as Amazon. They had many units available to try out in their store, so I got to try most of the top brands including Leupold, Nikon, Bushnell and others. Although this is not the top rangefinder out there, it does what I need, and it is well under $200 including tax or shipping. I have no need or desire to have a $400+ rangefinder. My uses are for hunting and mid-long range rifle shooting (200-600 yards). The Prostaff 3 does the job perfectly. It says "550 yard effective range" right on the top of it, but it keeps on working past that on reflective targets. So far the farthest "metal" target return I have gotten is 623 yards and I am getting "tree" returns of over 500 yards. This is better than advertised numbers...I am happy. I'm sure it will go longer distances for metal, I just haven't tried any yet.

As I said, the results of this rangefinder exceed my expectations, but the reason I bought the Nikon over the others had nothing to do with the effective range. As a matter of fact, the advertised 550 yards almost caused me not to buy it (because I wanted a 600 yard rangefinder). As I mentioned, this unit works accurately over 600 yards on "hard" targets, so don't let the 550 keep you from buying. I chose the Nikon because it had the clearest, uncluttered display. The yardage is displayed on the top in large font and is very dark black (easy to see). The yardage displays on some other brands were much smaller and at the bottom of the display and were not as readable. Also, the Nikon gave the most consistent distances with the least false returns.

My first and probably only range finder ever. I checked accuracy on a measured range and was dead on at all ranges tested up to 100 yds. Other unmeasured distances seemed plausable and realistic. This will definitely help me next deer season and on the golf course. Its 6X scope alone may replace my 8X binoculars on the hunt. Sight picture is sharp and clear. The price was right.

2 of my golf buddies use laser rangefinders in my group. One has a Callaway 550, the other a Nikon Monarch 800. Both units are made by Nikon, which detects pin placements quickly and accurately.
I used a free gps App on my phone, but lacked a few courses we played. Therefore, I finally decided to purchase a unit of my own.
The Nikon Monarch 800 was too much for my needs, and is no longer in production anyway. The Callaway rangefinders are in my target range for distances I need, but not the price I want to pay. That's when I found the Nikon Prostaff 3. It has the similar specs as the Callaway units, without the graphics and at a much lower price.
Reviews pertaining to usage on a golf course were mixed at best, with no reasons specifying otherwise. Checking the Manufacturer's product description is just as worthless, as it does not advocate nor discourage the use of this unit for golf, per se.
I decided to buy this unit for golf since Nikon does make reputable rangefinders with similar specs for Callaway, but without the Callaway price. Simple reasoning, but wrong.
I tried it as soon as I recieved it. I compared my reading with both partners, as well as course yardage markers. While my partners took almost instantaneous readings with their units, I had to take several readings before matching up to theirs. I thought this was just part of a learning curve for me. However, this went on the entire day. There were several instances when my readings were almost 50 yards off when compared to visual markers on the course. If not for the yardage markers, I would have been second guessing my distances. Not a good situation for shot commitment. I tried aiming at different targets around the area to no avail. I thought it was just my inexperience with this unit.

This review will be of both the redfield raider 550 and the nikon prostaff 3, since both are comparable in most aspects and I myself debated between the two. My primary uses are hunting/scouting.

I had initially bought the raider because I caught it on sale. However after receiving it, I was not happy. There was a fairly large black scratch or hair near the center of the reticle. It must have been inside the rangefinder because all my attempts to clean it off with a q-tip and windex failed. Other than that it worked fine. So I quickly exchanged it for another raider. My second raider had similar issues. There were a bunch of black specs on the upper left side of the viewing. This rangefinder also had focusing issues the farther away from the reticle. So I bought an Nikon prostaff 3 and decided to compare the two side-by-side.

After receiving the prostaff 3 and looking through it and testing it, it is significantly better that the raider. It is larger and a bit heavier but not noticeably so. Besides, I found the larger size better for holding steady to range targets. I also like that all the lenses in the prostaff are recessed more which gives them more protection when tromping in the woods. The "mode" button on the prostaff simply switches the units from yards to meters...nothing big. Both rangefinders range targets quickly and I found little if any difference in distance. Both had similar success and problems in low light conditions and rain (worked fine for the most part). I will note that inside of 100 yds., the prostaff returns distances out to a tenth of a yard which is nice. I got both rangefinders to range targets in excess of 500 yds. The raider returned distance as low a 5 yds. while the prostaff wouldn't range below 10yds.
