Bushnell Engage Rangefinders

The Bushnell Engage Rangefinders feature all-glass, two-lens optical systems; enhanced LCD displays; 50 percent larger objective lenses; and fully multi-coated optics with ultra-wide band coating.

Bushnell Engage Rangefinders

Bushnell has been leading the design and development of rangefinders for more than 20 years. I still have one of the company’s Yardage Pro 400 laser rangefinders that I bought sometime around 1998. A lot has changed in the laser rangefinder world since then. The newest units from Bushnell include the Engage 1300 and Engage 1700 rangefinders.

These new 6X 24mm rangefinders are two times brighter than competitive models in the class. They feature all-glass, two-lens optical systems; enhanced LCD displays; 50 percent larger objective lenses; and fully multi-coated optics with ultra-wide band coating and Bushnell’s exclusive EXO Barrier lens coating.

In addition, they utilize a proprietary algorithm that provides quick, consistent readings and a powerful laser diode for longer, more accurate ranging. They are ergonomic and have slimmed-down housings that are rubber overmolded, ensuring a positive and comfortable grip.

Powered by a single CR2 battery, the Engage 1300 and Engage 1700 can range non-reflective targets, such as deer, out to 400 and 500 yards respectively, and they will range reflective targets to 1,300 and 1,700 yards respectively. Both rangefinders feature ARC (Angle, Range, Compensation) with Bow and Rifle modes, as well as Scan, Bullseye, and Brush targeting modes. They come with fast focus eyepieces, ambidextrous lanyard holes, carrying cases, and tethers.


The new Engage 1300 and Engage 1700 rangefinders are a lot smaller and easier to use than my old Yardage Pro. I think I’m going to have to relegate that old unit to the museum.


MSRP: $256.95 (Engage 1300), $298.95 (Engage 1700); bushnell.com
