This package comes with more than just the range finder. There is a convenient carrying case included, which is perfect for utilization when you’re out on the hunt. The case is anti-slip, adding durability to the product. A lanyard is also included, so if you prefer to carry it around your neck you can do so as well.
The 3 Volt battery is included too, which is just nice, because some of the other brands do not do that and you have to spend some more. I know that batteries do not cost that much, but it is nice to get one for
By the way, a nice feature of the primos ARC is the battery life indicator, that makes it easy to determine when to buy a new one. This is quite handy too. Imagine being out in the field when the battery dies – that would suck big.
The design is pretty basic and black. Many people prefer it this way as it can blend in with just about anything.
Features Of The Bushnell Team Primos The Truth Laser Rangefinder
The measurement range of the primos ARC is 7-850 yards. Keep in mind that it goes up to 850 yards for reflective targets only. Trees can be ranged up to 600 yards, and deer up to 200. It is accurate down to plus/minus one yard. This model can read distances in yard or meters. The simple, one button design allows you to switch between the two quickly and easily.
The Team Prios The Truth ARC is equipped with ARC technology. This allows it to compensate for angled distances and elevations, up to 90 degrees. This feature is especially appreciated by bowhunters as it greatly increases the chances of them making their shot when hunting down from wonky tree stands. Lower priced rangefinders won’t usually have this feature, so this really sets this one apart from the crowd.
The magnification is 4x with an objective 20mm lens. Total eye relief is 20 mm, which assures that you can use this model while wearing glasses too, but it may feel a bit awkward.
One drawback of the Team Primos The Truth ARC is the LCD display. In broad daylight, it is crystal clear and easy to read. However, there is no illumination and the readout is black. Due to this, in evenings and early mornings you will have a hard time reading the display sometimes. You could also have problems in dark woods, or in rainy / foggy weather. This isn’t the biggest downside in the world, but it is something to consider before purchasing.
Size dimensions: 1.4” x 3.8” x 2.9”. It only weighs 5.9 ounces.
The housing is weather resistant and rainproof. You could hypothetically use this one in foggy and rainy weather conditions without damage to the device. However, as I have mentioned above, it is sometimes difficult to use it in low light conditions due to the black figures. And don’t submerge the primos, please!
A good feature of the Bushnell Team Primos The Truth ARC Laser Finder is the single button operation. The entire unit is operated by one easy to use button. When you are out hunting and golfing, you don’t want to spend too much time fiddling around with it, so this is a good feature. The device itself is easy to operate as well.
Uses Of The Bushnell Team Primos The Truth Laser Rangefinder
Bowhunting / Hunting
The anti-slip casing of this model adds extreme durability to the product. You won’t have to worry about damaging it simply because of clumsiness. Also, the design is compact enough to carry it around all day without even realizing you’re carrying it.
One downside of this model is the Posi-thread battery door. Many users have reported that this is hard to open, and that they struggle with changing batteries. Luckily, the battery can last a very long time so this isn’t something you have to deal with often.
Many bowhunters rave about how great this one is, especially for it’s price. It’s ARC function allows them to get precise measurements when hunting down from tree stands or rocks. This feature is commonly only seen on higher priced devices, but thanks to Bushnell, this one has it too!
One thing that can be confusing to people, though, is the advertised maximum range of up to 850 yards. This model can read that far, but only for reflective targets. Last time I checked, deer don’t reflect, so don’t let that number confuse you. Trees can be ranged up to 600 yards, and deer up to 200. If you need to range animals at more than 200 yards, this probably isn’t the best option for you.
The Bushnell Team Prios The Truth ARC can be efficiently used for golfing. The display makes it easy to range directly to a golf pin, without any error. Just remember that there is noch flag-locking technology integrated, which means it won’t make a sound or vibration.
For under 200 bucks, you will get a very good model that has elevation compensation already integrated. The features offered on this one are similar to those offered on much higher priced models, which makes it a great deal – at least in my opinion.
If you’re a rifle hunter who doesn’t plan to range over 200 yards, the Bushnell Team Prios The Truth ARC Laser Rangefinder is a great model for you. Bow hunters will love it because of its integrated elevation compensation and its accuracy.
Golfers can use it to, but beware that there is no flag-locking technology available.
So to make it short: It is durable, reliable, and has incredible features and considering its price compared to its features, you will get a lot of bang for your buck.
Thanks for reading and shoot straight!
