1. Leupold 112179 RX-1000I TBR W/DNA


Leupold 112179 RX-1000I TBR W/DNA

Leupold 112179 has unsurprisingly made it to the top 5 this year with its clear and superb image resolution. It makes use of an OLED display that has a unique brightness to it. The 800yard distance capacity is good, and it is specifically best for hunting purposes, as it could be used alongside powerful rifles. Furthermore, it has a very precise set of ballistic settings that provides excellent information for aiming. It makes aiming relatively easy, regardless of the weapon chosen by the user. It weighs 13.6 ounces, quite light for its 6x magnification, impressive optics, and the flexible intensity settings that could be adjusted to perfectly match the display to constantly changing lighting conditions. Interestingly, a buyer may choose from the following reticles: Leupold Plus Point, Duplex, and Duplex with Leupold Plus Point.

2. Bushnell Tour V3 Jolt Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder golf


Bushnell Tour V3 Jolt Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder

Each rangefinder is created to be good for a specific purpose. For golfers, Bushnell Tour V3 Jolt has to be one of the best choices, if not the best. This sold the most especially for golfing, because of its speed, price, and battery life. It is equipped with Jolt technology, an indicator of a pinseeking process’ completion, it also comes with a pinseeker feature. It is ergonomically designed to fit the hand well without causing discomfort. I still would say though, that it’s best to check one and see if it fits your hand well personally. Furthermore, it is tournament certified! It comes with a 3-volt lithium battery, a case, and a built-in tripod mount.

3. Bushnell Pro X7 Slope Golf Laser Rangefinder with JOLT


Bushnell Pro X7 Slope Golf Laser Rangefinder with JOLT

For sloping terrains in rangefinding, this product is one of the best. It is unfortunately not certified for tournaments due to the slope technology. Aside from that, it generates distance in about 3 seconds!

4. Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B 40534


Leica Rangemaster CRF 1600-B 40534

This model is, superb. It sets no limit to the user with its 1,600 yard range. It comes with a sturdy plastic case that is carbon treated to be indestructible. It comes with a powerful lens that had AquaDura treatment, making it hydrophobic, and thus creates images that are clear from rain and moisture. It also has ballistic modes and could thus be used for hunting as well.

5. Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder Review


Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder

This device is lightweight and compact. It has a good speed, by pressing the power button once, it could get the distance in 8 seconds and shuts down to save on battery. It’s easy to use and could be flexible to any non-golf activity like hunting, hiking, bird-watching, and so on. It has a range of 600 yards and a 6x magnification power. It could switch from metric to English system, and has the capacity to be brighter in darker conditions. If you’re a beginner and you’re looking for a flexible rangefinder, this is one of the most user-friendly rangefinders out there.
