I have know Bushnell to be quality optics products for just about my entire life. When I was growing up, my dad always used a pair of bushnells to look at the field when we went to football games together and I got to look through them as well. As far as I can remember, the optics were great and we could see clearly – Even from our nosebleed seats. Bushnell is a solid optics company with many options now, and they make some great things. But if you’re anything like me, you’re wondering what the best bushnell rangefinder is.
Now though, we are here to try and find the best bushnell rangefinder, which is going to be difficult because they have a range of products with a range of features. You may need some of those features or you may not need some of those features depending on how you hunt. For instance, the top of the line Bushnell ARC Binocular/Rangefinder has a range up to a mile! If you’re a bow hunter, there’s no way you’re taking 1500+ yard shot, so a feature like this is unnecessary.
There are a lot of factors to consider when looking at all the bushnell units, like magnification, ARC calculation, optics display and maximum range. There were also some units that we deemed were not appropriate for must hunters (because some features wont be used frequently and are not worth the added cost) and pulled some great units out of the running for that reason. We also considered bow hunters and rifle hunters, and looking over the options determined we didnt need to separate the two as we found one that would meet both needs. After a long process, we chose the Bushnell Team Primos The Truth Rangefinder with Clear Shot Technology.
We have a full review pending, but here are a few of the reasons that we picked this team primos unit.
- Clear Shot Technology: It will tell you if there’s clearance between branches and other obstacles for your arrow to hit the target
- Bushnell optics: Clear and high powered
- 4x Magnification
- True yardage range up to 199 yards, with a total range of up to 850 yards
The unit shows your actual guesstimated height of the arrow path, and can help you calculate draw length if necessary to ensure that you take a high percentage shot when that monster buck walks into your field of view. No more hitting tree branches and watching the winters dinner run off.
We have one of these and it’s in the review Que, so there’s a full review of this product to come.
