I just got the rangefinder back in the mail. Bushnell replaced the unit agreeing that it was defective. It definitely works as advertised now. It is great! Very accurate and was ranging things out to 1300 plus yards hand held. It was able to range a medium sized dog at 425 yards, so I'm confident that it could go out further. I am also impressed with the clarity and contrast of the optics. Very sharp and very crisp. This is a completely different product than the first one I received. This one...I would completely recommend. All in all I'm very happy with the purchase even though I had to pay to send it back. It actually took less turnaround time than what the Bushnell website advertised. It ended up just around two weeks from the time that it was shipped off.
Here is the kick in the pants: The LCD is fuzzy or shows a double image when your eye is situated as it should be on the eyepiece. When I move my eye towards the edge of the viewfinder and I start to lose target image the LCD shows up crystal clear as I would expect it. Of course it was a gift on Christmas, so I cannot contact them today as to how to handle making it right. Best I can tell I need to pay for shipping there and back for repairs which kind of ticks me off forgetting that it will be another 4-6weeks before I get it back. I expected the quality control process to not just see if the thing turns on, but at least see if the display is lined up properly and the crosshairs match with the laser.
Depending on whether they stand behind their product will determine if I adjust this review.
Extremely disappointed that is was messed up out of the box as this is messing up my plans over the holidays.
After reading a few forums on the units design I tested it using my camera looking through the eyepiece and it looked fine.
Examining the unit closely, in front of the adjustable eye piece there is a ring that can be used to fine tune focus... Turn that and everything is great.
If there was a picture in the manual or something describing the different components/adjustable things on the he unit this would have been a lot less frustrating. Looking at the fine adjustment ring I initially thought it s just a locking ring. Dumb moment for me. Might be a good thing for them to add it to their FAQ. Stars adjusted as the system now behave perfectly.
This is the Bushnell Elite 1600 ARC MONOCULAR range finder, not the FUSION binocs. I say this, because many people confuse the two.
This range finder works perfectly to 1600 yards without issue. I have not been able to get it to range past 1600 yards, so I wonder if it's software limited.
The primary difference between this unit and it's closest top-of-the-line competitor, the Leica 1600 Rangemester CRF is that this unit actually works and is 1/2 the price.
The glass on the Bushnell is not as nice and the Leica or the Swavorski LRF units.
However, Leica has a large number of 1600 units that don't actually work (range) properly, and the Swavorski, which better at ranging 2000 yard distances, does not have ANY of the fetured of this unit.
So, unless you NEED superior glass, as opposed to good glass, and you want to spend time and money looking for a working Leica unit, then this is the unit for you.
I'm not trilled that it's not made in Japan like the Fusion Binocs; it's made in China. However, it does tell you the angle you are shooting from, gives you an accurate distance to the target (I've compared ranging information to Google Earth), and has target, brush, and standard modes.
It works, and it's the only really great Bushnell option out there.
One note: According to Bushnell typical turn around on repair of one of these units is at least 4 weeks. However, all of the ELITE units are warrantied for life.
One advantage this unit has is that it uses a CR123a battery, as opposed to a CR2. So batteries can be found everywhere.
Recharible CR123 batteries are NOT an option for this unit.
The optics seem very good for this price range and it does everything they claim. I have been able to range a boulder at 1667yds. It works very good on trees and brush too, surprisingly far away. The brush and game modes are very handy for ignoring closer/farther targets that may be in the way. The integrated inclinometer is a great feature. The built-in bullet drop compensator would not be desirable for precision shooting, but it does seem to stay reasonably accurate to about 300-400 yards and would probably be good for quick calculations at shorter ranges.
As long as thing thing holds up through several years of service, I will be very happy with this purchase.
Bottom line: You get a LOT of rangefinder for less than $500.
