This review is on the Bushnell ENGAGE LE1300SBL Laser Rangefinder, which is the NEW version – mine was made in May 2019. If you look elsewhere, or for reviews, you will probably find the Bushnell PRIME LP1300SBL 1300 Laser Rangefinder –which is the older model. I did not find many differences..The optics appear as they claim to my eyes: very bright and very sharp. The LCD information screen is typical: under most situations readable and fine, but in shadowed areas a little hard to see–but usable..The accuracy is significantly better than my 4 YO Leupold TBR Laser Rangefinder (expensive), but that may be to better technology. This rangefinder gives you consistently accurate readings while in the ARC Mode (angle range compensation), which is on the LCD screen just below the line of sight distance, out to the 40 yards I have verified (that I know the angular distance from Stands and the line-of-sight distance. I also checked it against measured targets at 15 yards, 25 yards, 30 yards, 40 yards, 220 yards, and 470 yards (that have been ranged by multiple devices and different people). This range finder was dead on, and never misread the distance as long as the “bulls eye” or “brush” setting was correct–very nice job here. I assume that it will work great out to their “claimed” 600 yards for deer (See Picture Diagram)..It is all black, but dull, excepting the 2 front lenses–I added camo the wrap to the front. It is smaller than other rangefinders I have used, but fits comfortably in your hand–nice job with that. It had only 2 buttons, so once it is setup, it’s fast to use..However, setting it up is an issue. Ditto with the “instructions.”.The only usable instructions were how to attach the lanyard, and the FTC statement. There was NO user manual. The 2 pages of paper had only this information in several languages. The small “user” card was basically an advertisement of features. This must be a sick joke . . ..I found a Bushnell manual online for the older model (Bushnell Prime LP1300SBL) and was able to put together enough information to set up the menus. This PDF Bushnell manual is confusing; poorly organized; and, had images / captions in poor relationships. They really need to have a Technical Writer overhaul their manuals and put some emphasis on “logical and clarity”. . . ..The 2 PRIMARY settings you’ll need to adjust are marked with the Red and Green Boxes in my Picture..If you can manage to get these settings the way you want them, you’ll be good to go for most bow hunting and rifle-hunting situations:.Angle Range Compensation Modes : • Bow Mode • Rifle Mode.Targeting Modes: • BullsEye Mode • Brush Mode.Overall, this was a good purchase. I looked at all of the Rangefinders under $200 (including the Vortex Optics Impact 850–and I really like Vortex optics), and I think I made a good choice. The Optics and Technology is there in this Newer Bushnell Rangefinder, but user-friendly instruction is sorely missing. . . It will be a pleasure to use in the field.______________ If you want to use their Ballistic-table values, the list of calibers is minimal:Bushnell’s list of Popular Caliber & Load Combinations:Federal Cartridge.224 dia. 22-250 Rem, 55 gr.

I didn’t like that I couldn’t see the distance number any better in low light than with my old range finder and at 30 yards it showed a 3 foot difference then my old range finder. It is also is heavier. I sent it back for a refund.

Holdover/under values are incorrect. For example: group D for a .308 at 670 yds with a +5 incline shows a holdover of about 28″ when it should be about 160″. Returned one rangefinder and the replacement did the same thing.
Works easily and intuitively; no need to to refer to a manual or learn it all over again each time it’s used. Just pick it up and press the button. Seems accurate and gets readings when expected.

There are NO online instructions for use, so my husband can not get the full benefit of use for this product. Simple use worked well, but could be better if had in detail instructions

My husband loved this for Christmas. Very good quality
great rock –
easy to use
PROS-Accurate measurements-Very good build quality.-Compact and easy to hold. Nice rubbery grips.-Not only measures distance but also angle to ground which allows “true distance” calculation. You can set it to bow or gun mode which adjusts for gravity fall.-Nice carrying case with belt loop. Unfortunately, it is not a molle loop.CONS-Unintuitive and difficult menu navigation. There are only 2 buttons which makes it a pain to navigate and select menu items. Another 2 or 4 buttons would have helped tremendously. The menu will auto time-out within a few seconds so you don’t even have time to try to figure things out. There is no text in the menu so you have to remember or guess what the symbols mean. You must study the manual to have any hope. And there is no paper manual in the box, so you must download from the website (as of this review, this model isn’t even listed on the website).-While this rangefinder markets the optics as good for low-light conditions, there is no backlight for the readings which makes the supposed low-light benefit moot. It is difficult to see the reading in true low-light conditions. Once there is enough light to see the reading, any improved low-light optics don’t matter much anyway.OVERALLWorks well for rangefinding as long as you can deal with the horrible, clunky menu. The angle measurement is nice if you have a need for it. I would not buy this for the low-light optics as the readings are not able to be seen in very low-light conditions. I also have a Nikon 8397 ACULON AL11 Laser Rangefinder which does not have the angle measurement but is otherwise equivalent in performance and build quality.

Super excited to get this. Bushnell is a great brand However apron receiving it. The optic is nice to look through. But good luck reading any of the display. I was looking at a white wall in my house and still could not read or see the yardage or any other of the displays. I had to read the box in the hopes of seeing what was supposed to be where The best way to describe it. It’s like trying to read black on black I have 20/20 vision.
Utilisé pour chasse à l’arc, bon produit !
