Outdoorsman Review:

I know there are much better products out there but for the sweet price you can pick one of these up for it can’t be beat. Prices range from $140 on sale to $175. I
have been using this product for about a month now and have no complaints. After 300-500 ranges the battery is not showing the low indicator yet. It has 5 modes and  yards or meters can be selected with angle intelligence on or off. It also has a progressive scan mode.

I have ranged 250 yards with AI turned on and 500 with out. Very easy to use, I wear glasses and do not have to take them off because of the focusable eye piece and 5x magnification.

It is mostly drab green with realtree camo on part of it. It is comfortable in the hand and comes with a lanyard a case and a cleaning cloth. I bow hunt and it fits the bill very nice. Are there better ones out there? I am sure there are but for the same affordable price; no way. I am very happy with mine in every aspect. Battery life was a concern from other reviews but I have had no problems with mine at all.
