This rangefinder’s slope features could be turned on and off, depending on your purpose. It’s legal for tournaments, but could also be used for practicing slope estimation during times that one isn’t playing in the field. It also boasts of dual display technology that allows the user to switch between bright red display for low-light environments and black display for bright daylight use.
Brief Introduction To My Review
Table of Contents
I am a new golfer, but I’ve recently been very fond of it. At first, it started as simply going out with my friends to the golf course and trying out different obstacles at a time, just for leisure. After a few months, I bought my own equipment and started playing on my own. It’s fun. Golf has been my comfort zone ever since.
However, being the newbie that I am, I am very reliant on slope calculations. I first purchased a rangefinder with slope-calculating features. Eventually, my friends had encouraged me to start joining tournaments. This was a good idea, especially for my competitive spirit. This is also when I purchased my Bushnell Tour X Rangefinder. I’ve only used it for barely 3 months and 1 tournament now.
I’d like to share my thoughts on it. To start off, I regret that I had not bought it earlier. I think it’s a waste of money that I have such a multi-purpose rangefinder, and another one specialized in working with slopes. Since I only use it for golfing and I started joining tournaments now, I rarely have the chance to use my older rangefinder.
I’d like to share more of my thoughts on this device with you on the following paragraphs. But before that, let me give you a summary of the features that this device boasts of.
What are the Benefits?
This rangefinder’s slope features could be turned on and off, depending on your purpose. It’s legal for tournaments, but could also be used for practicing slope estimation during times that one isn’t playing in the field. It also boasts of dual display technology that allows the user to switch between bright red display for low-light environments and black display for bright daylight use. This has a pinseeker equipped with JOLT technology that gives notifications once it focuses on a flag. It also gives faster and more accurate yardages with its 2nd generation ESP and 6x magnification that could range between 5 and 1,300 yards.
How’s about its Features?
This rangefinder has 1.5 x 4 x3 in dimensions and weighs around 8 ounces. It is powered by a 3-volt Lithium CR-2, and offers extra-long eye relief with its fully multi-coated lens, 16mm exit pupil, and 393ft field of view.
As already mentioned, it is fully equipped with Dual Display Technology, pinseeker, and JOLT Technology that allows comfort, accurate, and fast calculations for the user.
Lastly, its slope calculating features can be turned on and off depending on the user’s needs. This is especially useful for tournaments and practicing, as you don’t need another rangefinder for practicing with slopes and a separate one for tournaments. This totally kills two birds with one stone.
This rangefinder is light, accurate, and fast. It has a good size that fits my hands perfectly, and a hand clasp that makes handling it easy. Battery life is good, and could last for about 10-12 rounds on me.
The highlight of this rangefinder is it is equipped with various types of technology that make rangefinding easier. It isn’t hard to manipulate and could be good for almost all purposes that I could use a rangefinder for.
Since this is especially for golfing, what I like most about this is its slope technology that could be turned on and off. That’s a big plus, especially since most people before have to have two sets of rangefinders; one for slope calculating and one especially for tournaments. It might seem pricey, but considering its versatility, if you’re one who would be able to maximize such features, it’s a really good buy.
It has a lot of features. For example, it could change the display from red to black depending on the ligh conditions. Also, the red plate gives two figures at the same time; the vertical slope and the yardage adjusted. Ideally, it also is good for my shaky hands. It isn’t hard to focus on the flag once it finds it. It works fast on the yardage results too!
Generally, I regard this product as a good purchase. Except for a few issues.
It doesn’t have an eyecup, and occasionally, it’s hard to see through the eye piece. Also, the focus knob easily twists out of focus. It’s also hard to focus with the red display too.
Lastly, I think it’s pricey. Luckily, I am very happy, as I could make use of all its features as I like joining golf tournaments. Otherwise, this won’t be such a good buy.
