More of a mid-size unit, I found the Bushnell Medalist to be the perfect size for a Laser Rangefinder. I find with this size that my hands can be more steady than the sub-compact versions. I was still able to locate my targets with a 4x magnification, and use the PinSeeker technology to quickly lock onto my targets from 300 yards and in.
Who’s it for?
Players who do not have the steadiest hands will enjoy the size, as it’s not too small, nor too big. With the mid-size shape comes more weight, but so much extra weight that the walker would experience a noticeable difference compared to the smaller, lighter versions available.
I have used the Bushnell Medalist Rangefinder for years. I am rarely interested in targets past 300 yards, so the 4x magnification does not bother me. I needed something that was light enough to carry, yet large enough for me to find my target quickly, and with accurate readouts. My only issue is when the battery is low it tends to shoot whatever is behind the actual target, so beware. In short, the Medalist is simple, useful and accurate.
