New Bosch Laser Rangefinder DLR130K

Bosch Laser Distance Measurer DRL130k. A little smaller and a little cheaper than the Bosch DRL165K. Slightly slimmed down features, too. Get one here and here. Couldn't find any on eBay or Amazon.

Anyone tried this one yet? I haven't, but the 165 has performed nicely.

Bosch's website lists identical dimensions* for the two lasers, 4″ x 2-15/16″ x 1-1/4″. According to their user manuals, they also weigh exactly the same, have the same water resistance rating - IP 54 (dust and splashwater protected), same class laser. The only real difference seems to be their max distance (130' versus 165') and price, the latter of which I assume to be the whole point of this new model.

* Both models' user manuals also list identical dimensions, though it is different than the website, 4" x 2-1/4" x 1-1/4"
