I am looking to buy a new range finder. My other one decided to stop working. I bought the halo z10xb the other day and did not like it at all. Will be returning it. The readouts when looking into it was black and when you range a tree or anything really you can’t even see the distance. Just blends right in. Anyone have a range finder they just love (and can still buy) My main use is bow hunting but would like an all around for gun hunting as well. Also a lot of them have the angle intelligence. Is that worth having? My old one does not have that. Thanks

I have the Wildgame Innovations Halo XRT. It’s been perfectly good for me. You can get them for around $100.
Also, if yours has adjustable zoom on the eyepiece, mess around with that. The zoom might be maxed out blurring the view.

It does have the focus and I did a lot of tweeting to make it clear but the black lettering is really hard to see in the woods. My old one was bold black so even in low light I could see it. Thanks for the input.
