Iím in the market and keep coming back to these two.  Both check all the boxes.

Love the ProX2, but its my only experience with a laser rangefinder. I don't think you could go wrong with either though.

There are many stories on here of Leupold customer service going above and beyond. Some have had defective rangefinders that are outside of the warranty replaced with the latest model. Most of the Bushnell customer service stories are exactly the opposite.

Just an FYI this policy has changed per Leupold.  I tried a few different customer service reps and got the same story.  Basically you get the option to buy a new unit at 60% of MSRP if you are out of warranty.  Still a great deal for sure but just figured I'd give folks the heads up that they aren't just replacing everything now with new units regardless of warranty.

I just found out about that policy when my GX-4i2 started going dark. I probably used it for less than 200 rounds in 5 years. That's not a good look for a $500 rangefinder.

Now the question is whether I buy the Bushnell X2 or ship the Leupold back and take the 60% "deal".
