I've got a Disto 510 which will happily measure over 100 metres and does 
offset heights for trees handheld fairly accurately.

Its not as waterproof as it claims as it can fill up with condensation quite 
quick (it does clear in the dry) and the screen scratches very easily if not 
kept in the case. The display only shows measurement in black as far as I can 
see so sometimes you have to adjust it so the measurement comes up in a 
lighter part of the screen which is a rather poor oversight.

I find it works quite well for me and is not very expensive at about £350. 
It's very small also which is always useful for discression!

Cheers

Dave

Unfortunately over the Christmas period my car was broken into and a Trupulse 
360 laser rangefinder was stolen out of the boot. We bought the Trupulse when 
we thought we might want to integrate it with GPS etc, but that never 
happened, so we don't need the same bells and whistles for its replacement 
(just accurate heights and distances really). I was wondering if anyone has 
any thoughts? Obviously there is the Trupulse 200, but I am also looking at 
the Nikon Forestry Pro and various Leica Disto devices. I particularly like 
the look of the Nikon. Does anybody have any views as to the pro and cons of 
these various bits of kit?
