This one has a nice stylish camo design. It comes with a case that can be attached to your belt, which makes transporting this product even easier. It also features a lanyard which is pretty useful if you want to hang it around your neck or elsewhere while being in the field or on the golf course.
This model comes with a CR2 3V battery. This is pretty nice as some of the other models don’t have one included. The battery will last a long time, by the way, due to the TecTecTec ProWild shutting itself off after a few seconds of inactivity. Inserting the battery tends to take a minute for most users due to the tight design, but once it’s inserted it’s straight shooting.
A cleaning cloth, wrist strap, and quick start guide are also included with this model.
Features of the TecTecTec ProWild Hunting Rangefinder
This model can measure from 10 to 540 yards. It is accurate all the way to plus or minus one yard. While the measurement range isn’t as far as the range of other models, I really appreciate the accuracy of this product concerning larger distances. This device measures in yards or meters.
Size dimensions: 4 x 2.8 x 1.6 inches. Weight is 6.5 ounces. This isn’t too much at all and makes long trips easy. Nobody wants to carry around extra bulk, but the size of this model ensures you can always have it with you.
This unit shuts off after 30 seconds of inactivity, which is quite good as it saves the life of the battery. It turns back on very quickly, so it shutting off by itself isn’t detrimental.
The magnification is 6x. The lens features multi-layered optics for a clearer reading. The eye relief is adjustable, which means that those of you who are wearing glasses could easily use this device as well.
The display on this model is clear and easy to read. It is important to note that it is not illuminated, so it can’t be used in low light situations. However, it is a great display during the daytime, when there is enough light available. The readout is black.
The body of the TecTecTec ProWild is water and dust resistant. It can be used in the rain, although the display may be harder to read. Don’t put it in water, though.
Operating this unit is easy as can be with it’s two button design. One button turns it on or off. The other button is for choosing the desired mode. Clicking this button will allow you to measure speed or distance. Pressing the power button once more will get you your measurement. The buttons are large with rubber on them, so operating this device is easy – even with thick gloves on or anything of the sort.
Uses of the TecTecTec ProWild Hunting Rangefinder
The TecTecTec ProWild is a durable device that is great for those going on long hunting trips, as it is compact and lightweight enough to be carried throughout the day. It responds very quickly, which makes it that much easier to get a perfect shot.
Even though it is very accurate for long distances, it can be off a little for distances under 50 yards. ‘A little off’ means just a few yards. I don’t want you to run away from this one, but I thought you might want to know this little downer.
I can definitely would recommend this product to hunters that are on a budget. It is guaranteed to give you a quick and accurate shot every time – well, depending on your skills, of course 🙂 . But this unit can measure so quickly, you never have to worry about your target noticing you and hurrying off.
Bowhunters should consider their needs before making a purchase. Yes, the TecTecTec ProWild is incredibly accurate up to 540 yards, but at low distances it just doesn’t do as well. If you are mainly shooting at targets within 50 yards, I highly suggest finding a model with better low distance measuring.
While the name of this model may suggest otherwise, golfers can really use this product. In fact, I would go as far as to say that golfers could better utilize it than bowhunters. Let me explain to you why.
First off, the TecTecTec ProWild Hunting Rangefinder can read far distances. It isn’t too accurate with short distances, but long distances will always be accurately read. With that being said, you could make a shot from across the golf course with this bad boy.
Secondly, scan mode makes using this device for golfing very easy. It will range at a flagpole without hassle and help golfers get their hole-in-one. It can get accurate readings for speed, even in high wind conditions. A downer is, that it does not have flaglocking tech integrated. But for that you will have to invest a bit more, I fear.
For around 120 bucks you can become the owner of a good quality model. This unit is reliable, durable, and can survive even the most intense weather conditions. There are of course way more expensive models out there, but if you don’t need all the fancy stuff, this one is just as good.
It doesn’t have a ton of different modes and settings. However, it does have exactly what you need for a good hunting or golfing experience. My main quirk with this product is the fact that it has it’s problems when it comes to close distance measuring. Not always, but often enough to mention it here.
The TecTecTec ProWild Hunting Rangefinder is a good product for hunters and golfers. As I have mentioned, it isn’t the best product for bowhunting but it can still be used.
My suggestion would be to not purchase this if you are solely bowhunting. However, if you are bowhunting and either golfing or rifle hunting, then this is still an affordable and good product.
Thanks for reading and shoot straight!
