In features, the Diablo Octane Rangefinder is almost identical to the highly successful Callaway LR550. Both carry the Nikon label, have 6x magnification, are waterproof and feature First Target Priority Mode, which aids in targeting the pin rather than the trees behind the green. However, the ratings on the Diablo Octane are higher than the LR550, which could be due to the red and black color scheme! The only difference we noted is a “new slim-stratic sleeve utilizes an independent bag clip that stabilizes to the eyelet of the Rangefinder”.
