Pursuit X1 M700X Laser Rangefinder
This rangefinder is essentially a 700-yard version of the Halo Xtanium made by Wildgame Innovations of Grand Prairie, TX. For the same price as the Halo Xtanium, you can buy this Bass Pro-branded product that appears to have all of the exact same features as the Halo Xtanium, except that the Pursuit version reaches out 100 yards further than the Xtanium. I did a lot of research on various rangefinders online before buying, and the illuminated display is what sold ultimately sold me on this model, which for me was a compromise between the Halo XRT ($100) and the Leupold RX-i1000 ($400). It's noticeably heavier than the Leupold, Nikon or Bushnell rangefinders, but it feels very rugged and is packed with a lot of features for the price I paid ($220). My only regret is that I didn't buy it when it was on sale for $150 :D

Excellent Piece of equipment!
To start off with the guy at Bass Pro told me that this unit was not very good. We looked at all the units they have for under $300 and when we were done, even the employee was impressed.
The optic is great on this unit. The red crosshairs make ranging in low light really easy and the lense doesnt turn into a red haze like the archers choice unit does.
I had the leupold 600 and this is a big upgrade. The 600 was off 2 yards after 40 yards of distance. This is spot on out 150 yards. That is the furthest I've been able to measure.
I use this for archery and the Angle Intelligence is priceless. Other units at this price dont have it. My leupold 600 did not have it and I beleieve it is necessary for archery.
I highly recommend this product to anyone!

This rangefinder has some great features. I really liked the lighted recticle which makes it easy to use in low light. However, this rangefinder has two things I didn't like. I wear glasses and when I put it up to my eye the field of vision was extremely small and I had a hard time picking up what I was trying to range. With my glasses off it was much better but when hunting I don't want to take the time to take my glasses off and then put them on again. Also the lighted dot on the recticle was very hard for me to keep still when ranging something. This will even be a bigger problem at longer distances.

i've been using this rangefinder for over a year now. and i've been medium impressed by it. the best thing about this rangefinder is that it has RED digital lighting which makes it really nice in low light conditions, but can be hard at times to see during mid-day hunting (if the sun is shining). Upon first inspection, the first thing that came to my mind was how heavy it was compared to my Nikon prostaff 3, but i didnt mind it as much. The only reason why i'm giving it a 4 star instead of a 5 star is because when ranging a deer or anything, the rangefinder seems to lag. It takes a long time for it to come up with the yardage. not sure if its bc its calculating the Angle, but i've seen other rangefinders calculate faster.
