Looking to pick up a new/used rangefinder for the range, and to use on the course from time to time....

Looking to spend between $100 and $200, used or new...

Any suggestions?

In the same boat, any suggestions for a cheaper end range finder with slope though?

Just spend a little more and buy a bushnell. V3 (if you can find one) or V4. It will last forever and you wont need to buy a new one in a year if you buy one of the cheaper ones. Ive been using my V2 for like 7-8 years now and still works perfect. Range finder is not something to cheap out on.
