Well, MG Golf has done it again.  First they create the best gloves on the market at an affordable price.  Next they produced a ball better than the Pro V1 at half the cost.  Now they have manufactured a Laser Rangefinder for only $150!

Features:

  • Get the accuracy of a laser rangefinder at a fraction of the cost of big-names. The M400 measures distance within ±1 yard from5-438 yards (5-400m) but costs $$$ less.
  • PinSeeker technology. Measures the distance to the nearest object (e.g., when a bunker is behind a pin) which helps you easily lock on to the pin.
  • Compact size and light weight makes it easy to carry. Small (only 4.1 x 2.8 x 1.7") and light (only 7.4 ounces), the M400 grips comfortably in the palm of your hand and is practically nothing to carry in your bag.
  • Crystal clear optics. High quality 5x magnification lens with large display helps ensure quick accurate readings. Has adjustable diopter of ±5 to customize to your own eyesight correction prescription.
  • Conforms to USGA rules for tournament play.
  • Comes with handy carry case, carry strap, 3V lithium battery, microfiber lens cloth, and instruction manual.
  • 60 day money-back guarantee. Don't like it? Return it in good condition within 60 days for a full refund of the product price, no questions asked.

If I didn't already have a rangefinder I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. I've been thoroughly impressed with their golf balls and their gloves. I've also spoken with them and they have top notch customer service.

Foz I've been thinking about that one lately. I've been wanting a newer laser RF over my old.. old inaccurate Bushnell. This one is fairly basic as far as newer model LRF's go but I think it's really all I need. I've never been disappointed with any purchases made from MG.

 

UPDATE: I just called to ask a question and order one. My question was concerning the pouch carry case. Sounds like it would be along the same lines as other brands provide. However, they are currently out of stock for the next 7-10 days.

I'll call them back then to order and make sure it's still the same model.

I'm with you Plaid.  I have never used a LRF but this peaked my interest.  I emailed them and they said they were the manufacturer.  From previous product experience, they have always been rock solid.  I would like to know if they have a "jolt" like the newer LRF's have.

That's a good question Foz and the reason I didn't go ahead and pre-order. I was thinking I'll see what they offer when their new inventory arrives.

Somebody must be making it for them.  Wonder who.  I am not in the market, since I just got a Bushnell for Christmas, but I would be curious who made the optics.

I saw this a couple of days ago so this past Tuesday I ordered the M400 along with a couple dozen Calloway Crome Speed balls.  I figured that with a 60 day return policy, I'd give it a try.  Much to my surprise, it arrived the next day (Wednesday).  I have used it a couple of times and compared its accuracy with a high end Bushnell and a more comperable rangefinder.  I was pleased with the results, with the M400 being spot on or within a yard of what the others were showing.  It seems to be well made and very easy to use.  I'll see how it performs over time but if it keeps up like the first couple of outings, it appears to be a winner.

Have been using mine for about 3 years, still working like the first day.

And they definitely do not manufacture it. In Europe there are like 5 companies using the same model with a different sticker on it.

Used my M400 for the second time today. It's a good one. I've also seen many out on the web with a different name/number. MG seems to have the best price though. I'm glad I didn't pay extra for features that I have now found aren't necessary. For me anyway.

My M400 Laser Rangefinder just arrived......so far I have shot the various walls in my office and down the hallways...........pretty easy to operate, fits snuggly in my hand.  Now, if I just had a dry golf course to play...........

Finally got to try out the M400.  Seven of us played a "dry" course in Z-Hills yesterday.....I was able to test the M400 rangefinder from Master Grip Golf(MGGolf.com).  It took me awhile to get my hands steady, but I soon got the hang of it.  I also had my gps(Garmin G6) on me so I could compare distances.  I found that the M400 was within a couple yards of the Garmin, (once you repositioned the Pin in the Garmin.).  I am sure I will get better at it as time goes on.  I found that when I could not hold it steady, I could scan the area where the Pin was and look for a significan drop in the yardage.  This was usually the Pin.
