    Don't leave on a hunting trip without it, Nikon Prostaff 550. Don't use it for 3D though.

    Got a Bushnell Sport 450. I know they're not top of the range, but I've found it works very well in most situations.

    I take it with me if I go for a jog or walk and just point it at various objects at various distances. On other days I don't take it with me and guess distance, then when I'm at the same spot and have it, I see how accurate I was. It has really helped me guage distances.

    I bought a Nikon Monarch 800 about a year and a half ago. Works quite well. I've repeatedly ranged "soft" targets out to 700+ yards and "hard" targets further yet. It doesn't have the angle calculator built in but I don't feel I really need it as I've never hunted from a tree-stand and don't have any inclination to do so (at least not at this time).
