What is a Rangefinder

Rangefinders

While most modern day rangefinders that are available to the public are categorized as being a laser rangefinder, they have also used sonar (sound) and radar.

For now, lets focus on the laser rangefinder and the different purposes for which it can be used.

The basic purpose of a rangefinder is to show you the distance from where the rangefinder is located to an object of some distance.

They are used for such purposes as surveying, hunting and golfing but they also find a purpose in many other activities.

Typically, most hand held rangefinders have an effective range that varies from 400 to 1500 yards, depending on the type of rangefinder you purchase.

Other factors that would affect the accuracy and range of a rangefinder are weather and atmospheric conditions as well as the reflectivity of the object being used to reflect the light.

For most purposes it is fine for there to be some variation of a few feet or even several yards, but for other applications there is a need for great accuracy, as is the case of land surveying.

Two of the most popular uses for rangefinders are hunting and golfing. Because each of these sports require a proper distance measurement in order to be accurate when aiming for the target, the rangefinder finds it's way into many golfer and hunters bag.

Of course there are many different options to choose from when you are looking to purchase a rangefinder and they even have some that are sport specific.

In this way you can easily find one that will contain many of the most popular options bundled in for the sport of your choice.

It isn't always necessary to have a rangefinder to be good at your sport, but it is a tool that is not easy to get along without once you get used to using it. So when distance really counts, a rangefinder will give you what you need.
