1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Those, or something like them have been doing the rounds on Amazon and Ebay for ages, Argos used do this, so if you are going to have to have a cheap one, buy from here...

    http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/3172131/c_1/1|category_root|Sports+and+leisure|14419152/c_2/2|14419152|Golf|14419202/c_3/3|cat_14419202|Other+golfing+accessories|14419219.htm

    Because it is alwys easier to take it back to Argos than Mr Chin of Kowloon Harbour, Hong Kong! Just be careful read the reviews, if you want to buy it do so, trial it at known distances, ie measure 35 yards from a brick wall then get the range finder out and see if it will work, if not back to Argos, one of those times buying from a British company will be better!

    More expensive on Amazon, but the reviews are worth reading!

    You'd be better off using an iPhone app rather than one of those things ;)

    I was looking at that but yes it is too good to be true you press a button until the crosshairs are the same size as your 6m (seems a bit big) golf pin and the distance is given (roughly) from that.
    No good for us.

    Nikon Riflehunter 550 is a nice piece of gear. No fuzz, tells you the distance and then it leaves you alone.

    I use a Longridge Pinpoint, it is similar to the LRF 400 (probably the same thing with a different name on), it works, point and press, distance, easy, simple, no fuss!

    I have a Bushnell Sport 600, Bowhunter edition mainly because it was the smallest range finder I could find.

    Added bonus, as its the Bowhunter edition, if you are pointing at something in a tree, or down a hill, it will tell you the angle and the POI distance as well as the line of sight distance so no guessing on hold over/under, you just pick your mildot/aimpoint for the POI distance and shoot. :D

    Cheers
