My binos are some lower end bushnells but they get the job done, I've yet to invest in a range finder, and I started off buying cheaper tree stands. I can live without a range finder for now, the binos get me by but could definitely use upgrading, however, a cheap Treestand I'll never purchase again. Last year I made the move to muddy hangons and the difference is night and day. I feel safe, secure, and the hang so easy. Money well spent!
