Last year, in a test of bargain rangefinders for the magazine's Field Test section, the LRF 600 scored well for accuracy, target acquisition, optical quality, and overall performance. The author, Steven Hill wrote: "This unit performed reliably to 150 yards but faltered at 200, its advertised maximum distance for deer. [It reads larger reflective targets--rocks, trees, hillsides--to 600.] Decent optics and a generous rectangular reticle make it easy to aim. No angle compensation is a minus that's made up for by the very low price. Overall, it's a solid no-frills package."
