Buy the Nikon® Archer’s Choice laser rangefinder
(2/24/11) The review for the Archer’s Choice was left for us by Aaron H. from somewhere around here. Thanks Aaron for your review.
I purchased a Nikon Archers Choice before the 2010 archery season. I was very happy with the product for bowhunting. The shot angle compensation was very helpful and there actually is a difference in which pins you will need to shoot which helped me put the perfect shot on my biggest deer to date, a 156 inch Ohio 8 point.
The rangefinder was handy to use and easy to put on a target and quick to bring up the range. The only downfall to this rangefinder was for checking longer distances. I really liked the case it came in and the magnet made it quiet to uncover the lense. I compared a few different ones before i purchased mine and was very happy with what I got for the price.
I have recommended it to all of my hunting buddies and even a few have purchased one after using mine. Overall a good buy for the bowhunter.
