Rangefinder

Joseph M

Ok so I need everyone's help. I have been battling back and forth with myself about getting a rangefinder. I was raised very old school with learning feel and pacing off yardage from the course markings and knowing how to read and use a yardage book. Let me know what y'all think I respect the opinions of a lot of people on here and need them right now. thanks.

    I love my Bushnell V4! I've found using my rangefinders thru the years that there are many course markings that are incorrect. I can also shoot and get instant yardages to anything. Pretty sure if they allowed them on tour most guys would use them instead of walking off yardages.

    Old school pacing and pins sheets are fine. GPS's supply a lot of useful info, but they don't get you distance to the flag. A range finder takes away all of the guesswork. Get one. You won't regret it.

    I have had my Bushnell rangefinder for 4 years now. Best money I've ever spent on a piece of golf equipment.

    Call me silly but....I like old school. Pin sheets and 150 yd markers work for me.

    I have the Bushnell Tour V4 Jolt. Much easier, quicker to use and more accurate that some yardage markers when playing tournaments. Measures to the flag. I have used Bushnell's for years. This is my second one (I upgraded).

    Bushnell for sure. Only way to go for me.

    I actually have both. A GPS watch and a rangefinder. The rangefinder is great, as long as you have a clear line of sight. When you find yourself on the wrong side of a row of trees, as I often do, the GPS can still get you close.

    Definitely get a range finder. I would recommend Bushnell. I love mine and couldn't go a tournament round without mine. But that being said I also use a yardage book too because I like the feel of using one and double checking yardages. I use a combo of yardage book and range finder. There are limits to a range finder that a yardage book can do, and vice versa.

    I use the Bushnell tour V3 and it's amazing. Definite a must but , that the old version so go with the V4

    Leupold... American made and best customer service... my four year old model stopped working and they sent me their latest version.

    It will definitely will change your game. I've had a Bushnell and getting exact distances has allowed me to take the guess work out, especially when playing new courses. I picked up a Bushnell Pro X2 this year and have not regretted it.

    Precision Pro Golf (NX7 or NX7 Pro). I picked up the Pro version with slope. It's my first range finder and likely my last. Price point, free battery replacement for life and 6X magnification are terrific. 10 rounds and a few range trips and it's perfect for my 3 handicap game.

    I just got the Bushnell V4 and would recommend it to anyone. Easy to use and with the addition of the Slope feature it will give you an accurate yardage to the pin. I also wear the Garmin X40 which gives GPS yardages, but also tracks each shot and has a pedometer.

    I actually carry both a Garmin GPS watch and a Bushnell Tour V4 with me for my rounds. I like as much information as possible to make my decisions on the golf course. I'll use the watch to get my distances to the front or back edges and then use the rangefinder to shoot the pin. Took 1-5 strokes off a round taking guesswork out of it. It's a prudent investment if you ask me.
