Unique Exchange and Dual Display Technologies Lead Host of Premium Features on World's Most Advanced Laser Rangefinder
 
Overland Park, KS, January XX, 2015 – Bushnell Outdoor Products, makers of the #1 laser rangefinder on the PGA Tour, today introduced its latest innovative laser rangefinder – TOUR X. In an effort to continue catering to over 97 percent of PGA Tour pros and top amateurs who trust Bushnell laser rangefinders, the TOUR X has been engineered with Exchange Technology.  Using two interchangeable faceplates, Exchange Technology gives the golfer a 2-in-1 device.  The TOUR X conforms to USGA rule 14-3/.05 when the black faceplate is engaged.  When users switch to the red faceplate, the TOUR X deploys Slope Technology providing players with adjusted distance readings based on elevation changes.

 

“We are proud to unveil our most feature-packed laser rangefinder to date, which continues our legacy of dominance in professional golf,” said Scott Peterson, Bushnell Senior Product Manager. “The introduction of the TOUR X once again proves we are not only committed to the Tour player, but also the elite amateur player who requires precise yardage readings during practice and tournament rounds.”

 

In an endless pursuit of absolute precision through industry-leading technologies, The TOUR X features Dual Display Technology (DDT) that allows users to easily toggle between the bright red display featuring Vivid Display Technology or the crisp black display, incredible ranging capability of up to 1,300 yards (450+ yards to a flag), 2nd Generation E.S.P. (Extreme. Speed. Precision.) and PinSeeker with JOLT Technology.

Bushnell Golf also included JOLT Technology amongst the host of features offered in the new TOUR X. When the golfer aims the TOUR X at the flag, JOLT Technology will provide short, vibrating bursts to reinforce Bushnell's advanced PinSeeker Technology has isolated the target and locked onto the flag. The vibrating bursts provided by JOLT Technology will assure golfers have the exact distance to the flag.

 

The TOUR X is also equipped with 2nd generation E.S.P. technology.  E.S.P. provides yardage five times faster and more accurately than ever before. Not only has the acquisition speed been increased to a lightning fast level, E.S.P. provides 1Ž2 yard accuracy from five to 125 yards, and the distance is displayed to 1/10th of a yard.  Having more accurate distances enables the golfer to strategize and hit every approach shot with confidence.

 

The TOUR X will be available at Bushnell retailer's nationwide beginning in early April.  Retail price for the TOUR X is $499.

 

Bushnell, the #1 choice of professional golfers, offers a full range of rangefinders, which continue to change and improve the way golfers assess distances, ultimately improving performance.

No idea how they don't have a patent clash for the face plate tech with Leupold?

Short answer is I have no idea, but patents are strange things. Lot's off loopholes, and it's possible to be overly-descriptive in how a device/technology functions. It could be a simple as a some small thing in exactly how the face plate connects.

 

Could also be a licensing issue, or a trade-off for a patent violation that happened the other way. It's called horse trading and it happens all the time in the golf industry. Basically company A 'borrows' a bit of patented technology from company B and rather than deal with litigation, company A agrees to owe company B one at a later date. Basically it becomes an IOU situation. It's a lot more common than people might imagine, even among competitors.

Yeah, it was a bit rhetorical. I am familiar. Obama changed the patent system from "first to market" to "first to file" when he took office. That's a big change. Major advantage to the largest corporations in the world. Very dangerous.

Mushii:

  First, welcome!  Hope to see you posting more in the forums.  Secondly, this is an old post from 2015 so this range finder isn't so new anymore ;)  You can probably still get them at all the local retailers in your area and online.  Bushnell came out with a new series called the Pro X2, and the Tour V4 Shift/ Tour V4.  Specs are on the Bushnell's website http://bushnellgolf.com/laser-rangefinders/pro-x2/ My Golf Spy may have testing opportunities for these products in the future (just guessing).
