Range finder recommendations

What are you recommendations for a range finder for archery that falls in the $100 range for cost?

Find some junk in your garage to sell, then buy a Vortex.

I find it hard to believe.
I'm not looking for a range finder for rifle where 300-500 + yards are being ranged. This would be for within 75 yards.
I will not be paying hundreds of dollars for a range finder.
There must be a few decent RFs out there that are in the $100 range.

I would probably trust the Bushnell over the tectectec brand. Haha

Neither of those have ARC or any angle compensation. You will be surprised how much the yardage changes with uphill or downhill shots. I shoot from benches alot and it can be as much as 3-5 or more yards difference. Get the best used one you can find with some angle comp. :twocents:

It doesn't cost any more to shoot a laser 500 yards than it does 25.

You could always get the $50 special on Black Friday, but you are going to have to spend a bit to get a decent unit with the features you want.
