I purchased a Nikon Prostaff 550 on sale @ Cabela,s & I'm real happy with it.
For a while I couldnt justify the cost but I'm glad I spent da dough now.
I was going to mount it on the bow but ends up I hunt from a blind so I just hang it around my neck & slip it in my pocket where its handy yet out of the way.

I use a Bushnell Legend Arc 1200. When I set-up my portable tree stand I take ranges on several trees so that when a deer comes by I know the range and am ready to go.

Pydpiper,

Where did you get that spiral cable?
Also, is that just a regular heat shrink over your switch or something softer?[/quote]

It's a modified switch from a flashlight, came just the way it looks. I cut off the end and made my own.

Thanks David!
I really like your setup and I am in the process of making slightly modified version of it. Can't mount another ring on Nikon Bolt scope (no space) and also have Bushnell Yardage Pro Scout which is vertical, so I made my own bracket for it.
Back on topic, I am very happy with my rangefinder and find it VERY helpful in many ways.
