In for review is the COOLSHOT 20 rangefinder from Nikon, and extremely compact and lightweight unit that also doesn't break the bank as much as some others with a price-tag of $199.95. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles we are seeing now, but for many a straight-forward laser is all they want/need. Will be fun to test its speed and accuracy.
