Summary: Great product from nikon, very dependable, highly accurate and worth every penny for that can't miss shot. When something BIG is on the line you don't want to second guess your distance. I love the waterproof feature of this finder, when you pay up to $400 for something like this you don't want it ruined by rain, and conversely you want to be able to use it on those foggy/drizzly days without fear of breaking it.
Summary: Great rangefinder for hunting and golf although I primarily use it on the golf course, even though I have a UPro which I also like. You can scope the flag and get the distance to the pin, or if you are having trouble keeping the crosshairs steady, pan the flag and watch for the yardage change, the lowest will be the distance to the flag. Easy and quick to use, I like the x6 magnification.
Summary: Purchased mainly for golf, but also for hunting. Rangefinder is light, small and accurate; once you get the hang of finding the flag yardage by first targeting the flag, and if you are not quite sure, or have shakey hands, panning the flag and noticing the yardage changes, you will be very happy with this unit.
Summary: All the Nikon Monarch 800's made nowadays, REALTREE camo or the matte black, are super clear, super accurate and have few if any problems reading even through your windshield on a rainy day ! I've lost on Leupold's and Bushnell's...both trash compare to this World Class RF. My first I bought at Amazon, and since have ordered and tested several more for family and friends.
Summary: "I had mine just over a year and loved it, but it quit working two weeks ago and I sent it in to Nikon for repairs. They wanted $311.00 to repair it. Might at well buy a new one. Very Poor Customer Service from Nikon.
