It's not bad for the price. Did a stop sign to about 150y, a 6'x6' fence to about 250y and a house at over 400y easily (that's all I had as a targets at those ranges so it might do small at those ranges). There is up to a +/- 5% difference between what it said and what goggle earth said but that could also be due to not being exact starting points. I wish I could have another brand/ better model to do a side by side comp with to check it against.
Over all it meets my needs for setting targets without having to rely on "yea that looks good". You might surprised on how off you are on guessing when compared to this and google earth.
Overall I'm glad I got it, for what I want, at what I was willing to pay. I would buy it again if I had it to do over
I took this thing bow hunting with me, and i must say. I fell in love. I had as much fun playing with this as i did the hunt. LOL!
The first one of these I ordered didn't work when I first put the battery in, but when I "jiggled" the wires to the battery terminal it came alive. Accuracy was spot-on, I checked it against known, measured distances and I was very pleased with the results. Three days later I tried to use the rangefinder again, and it wouldn't come on no matter what. I tried a known good battery, still nothing, so I returned it. The replacement has worked just fine from day one, and again the accuracy is exceptional. This isn't the most solid unit in the world, and I'd prefer that it came with a wrist strap, but it's so easy to use and reliable (on the second unit, that is) that it's well worth the cost. To me the MOST important feature is accurate readings, since my older Bushnell had let me down several times by being WAY off in that department. This unit fills the bill.
I've been putting off buying one but this one caught my eye for price and the Simmons name (I have one of their scopes and it can't be beat). Was measuring tape accurate at everything I looked at up 375 yd's.. Even left it out over night at 29 degrees and had frost on it when I fired it up. It quickly gave the same exact distance I'd be sighting in my rifle the evening before. Every sporting goods store / supplier has the same 4.5 to 5 rating on this model and I agree. I'll be bringing to the golf course the next time I go. Heck, I'll just leave it in the truck and it'll go everywhere I do.
Looks a little much to rate something 5 stars, but this Simmons works! and works well. At this price it didn't break the bank. All smiles on this one.
I have enjoyed ranging everything around me. The Simmons LRF 600 with tilt Is fast and accurate. The unit is lightweight. One button operation. The viewfinder is not cluttered. Only the information you really want is on the screen. It takes a 9 volt battery that can be found anywhere. Other units use a more pricey CR2 battery which in my opinion, is a turn off. The tilt feature (100 yard max) is fun to play with and is usually found on rangefinders costing a good bit more. Overall I am well pleased with both Simmons and Walmart.
Bought this to try on the golf course.What a pleasant surprise. After a little learning curve,
I was able to pick up the flags,bunkers,trees,etc. easily. It sometimes picks up trees behind the flag instead of the flag itself, but with a rough knowledge of the distance and a steady hand you will get the correct reading.
It is very easy to use with just one button and with the 9 volt battery you don't have to worry
about charging it all the time.
I like the rectangular reticle that it has for aiming rather than cross hairs that are on many models.
The Simmons LRF 600 Rangefinder is a nice, compact model that comes with accessories – including a nice belt case – not found on other comparably priced brands. I had initially purchased a competitor’s brand from a major outdoor online retailer and the product fell apart the first time I used it. The Simmons is easy to use, only a single button activates it. I carry it on my belt in near my spare ammo pouch and the light weight makes it virtually undetectable during a long day afield. However, the light weight is also a drawback. I worked in network television news for over 20 years, and the reason professional video cameras are heavy is to stabilize them during a shoot while holding them on your shoulder. The problem with any lightweight optics is keeping them steady enough to shoot, and the rangefinders are no exception. I found I often had to lean against a tree – something one doesn’t see much on the prairies of North Dakota, nor on golf courses, for that matter – to hold it steady enough to get a reading beyond 40 or 50 yards. Even then, it could be difficult and the limited range of the lower priced models is a drawback out here, when shots are normally measured in the hundreds of yards. None of that means I’m not satisfied with my purchase, however, and you would be too. You can spend hundreds of dollars more, but I’m not sure the price difference would really matter. Great buy for a starter rangefinder.
Very nice rangefinder not baulky light easy to set and use and the price is great any one that wants a rangefinder should get one of these
I purchased this to help my wife and daughter judge yardage while shooting 3D archery. They are only shooting 25 lb draw; so, yardage is a big deal. (They guess the yardage and then we confirm with range finder). This unit is light, quick to operate. The money saved in lost arrows has paid for this unit. If you are looking for a unit to range Elk @ 400 yards, well, maybe spend the money, but for our purpose could not be happier.
I took it once in the woods so far. Works great on a variety of things of a variety of colors (e.g from trees to cars, to houses etc). I also took it out on the shooting range a couple of times to find the range of various targets... nice product.
I bought this for my husband and he says he loves it. It works well and he would recommend this to everyone who is into this.
being a bow hunter and a lot on your mind while in the stand one last thing you need to not worry about is the shot what pin do I use how far is that ? spot a few items as a reference and your all set. measures quick and easy at the push of a button, can't say it isn't accurate seems to work great. well worth the investment
I tested the range finder as soon as I received it. I went outside and located small trees and it worked fine. However, as soon as I took it to the golf course it did not work. It has trouble finding the flag pole. Seems to be great for hunting but not for golf. Better stick with the range finders that are designed to use for golf.
Have used it four rounds of golf and it performs very well. A great price, convenient, does its job well. So far so good.
This range finder does exactly as advertised. I've used more expensive range finders that my friends had and this is as good or better than all that I've used. It works as well on the golf course as it does when I'm hunting. It's very accurate and easy to use and I recommend it to anyone who wants a quality product at a reasonable price.
Seems to work just fine but I've not yet used it to range a target and calculate the bullet drop in an actual shooting situation.
Very easy to use. Nice size. Light weight.
works really well for that price
Perfect for what I need. Takes all the guess work out of yardage. You don't have to depend on somebody telling you that, "Yeah, that's about 50 yards."
