The VPRO500 Rangefinder is on Amazon for $120 right now for the next hour. How is this thing? I am seriously considering it but not without input from the community first!Image1488850762.143967.jpg

My buddy ordered a similar one and it broke on him after a couple months. I would look at the Nikon coolshots line if you want a cheap rangefinder. They can be had for around another 50 bucks.

Oh okay thanks for the info. Yeah I'll just save up a little for one with slope on it as well.

I have a similar model purchased from MG Golf. Currently $104. These LRF's like you're interested in are all over the internet. They are good.... but can have quality issues. I'm making an update later regarding the M400 from MG Golf. I've had another issue crop up with mine.

Had mine for well over a year now in my bag when it is thrown in the truck then out and into the golf cart. Has never skipped a beat still working great after a year of use for $120 and some change.

Can't wait for the vibration free ones like Nikon's get to this price point.

I had a recent B-day and got the Bushnell V4 slope edition and it's awesome. Was only $249 on Amazon, and it has already saved me strokes with the slope feature.

For anyone looking at the TecTecTec range finder in the future I wanted to add some info.  I grabbed one before the start of last season for $100 and I have had no issues at all.  I have compared it with the results I get with other people's Bushnell and Leupold models and have been right on the money when doing pin seeking.  I have had a few times where some of the top end models have been more accurate at getting distances to hazards or random spots on the course.  I have never had an instance where it has been more than 5 yards off, but 5 yards can be significant.

 

Is it the top of the line in every way, no, but I have found it to be a solid little unit for the money and it comes with a great case for storing it. As a bonus, the original battery is still going strong.  If you have the money to burn on a Bushnell, do it, I am sure you will be happy with your purchase, but if you want to save some dough for something else grab one of these units and I don't think you will be disappointed.
