In shopping for a new laser rangefinder, I noticed that a bunch of people swear by Leupold because of their "lifetime warranty", and having had older models that malfunctioned, replaced with new ones.

I recently checked their website and noticed that it now says rangefinders are under a 2-year warranty.

https://www.leupold....etime-guarantee

Does anyone know if Leupold changed their policy?  Are golf rangefinders now only covered by a 2-year period?  If so, this was a huge selling point for me, and now I am considering other brands.

If you scroll down that page, there are reviews that indicate that it was 2 only for “electronic” devices.  Looks like some thought it was lifetime when it wasn’t. Why not call Leupold and confirm it was or a recent change.

Yeah 2-year warranty on the rangefinders.  I wonder if it was a recent change.  In any case, I'm now looking at other brands.

Nikon offers 5 year warranties. That was the last brand I bought.

I have Leupold, why would you look for different? You think they'll not cover you? Like they have been for so many years.  Your just a cheap person, wanting free stuff.

No one said anything about wanting "free stuff".

I sent my Leupold Gx-3i back with a faded screen this month. They just offered 60% off any new purchase from their super inflated MSRP prices.  Save a couple $'s off buying one off the street, but not that much when trying to replace an already expensive one.

I sent back a GX-2i2 that was about 3 years old.  It wasn't picking up flags consistently and hardly ever locking on to prisms. About 7 days after sending it off I received a brand new GX-2i3. I'm not sure what the warranty was on the old unit but the new rangefinder states 2 years.  BTW the 2i3 is smaller and seems to read distances a little faster.

I too sent back my GX-4 for giving incorrect yardages.  they sent me a new one without worry.  never asked about when I purchased it or not.  sent in old model, received a new one after about about 10days.  excellent email and phone communication.  I would not buy another rangefinder after this.  they are a bit expensive, but they are the best in my opinion and experience when it failed to work as expected.
