I originally purchased a standard GW-9400 about a year ago. But, I flipped it because I was new to the forum and was freaked out after reading the lug breakage threads going around back then.
Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, still seeing a few posts here and there about the lug issue. So, I decided to buy another rangeman and put it through the gauntlet of my outdoor activities to satisfy my own curiosity if the lug issue is really a thing.
It seems to me reading the breakage threads that a majority of the people having the issues just came to the forum for that and didn't really have a good explanation for how it happened and all the variables.
I'm going to use the rangeman for my outdoor activities for the next year, to see if it is as tough as my other Gs or if I do have a lug issue.
It will go through but not limited to the following activities, Mountain biking (trail and downhill) shooting competitions, bird hunting, camping, bouldering, ice climbing, off roading, working on cars, mowing, yard work, ski biking, and dog walking.
If I do have an issue I will be as thorough as possible in documenting the cause of the failure.
