It turns out even I can be wrong. When I reviewed the Archer Range range finder I found a few thing I did not like. It turns out it was operator error combined with not reading instructions. I know none of you guys have ever been guilty of ripping a new toy out of the box and running to the woods with out reading the instructions first but that is exactly what I did with this product. If you check out the following web site www.ArcherRange.com you will find helpful tips on how to best use this product. I was using the crank to try to pull up my gear and that isn't what it is designed for. I also reported that the product was not good for uneven terrain but if you check out the website it will tell you how to handle this problem. I also failed to mention that the Archer Range requires no batteries and will sustain alot of abuse. The case is plastic but very tough.
