TESTERS ANNOUNCED: Bushnell Tour V4/Tour V4 Slope Rangefinders

Recommended Posts

(5) Testers Wanted!

Bushnell Tour V4/Tour V4 Slope Laser Rangefinders


“How far” isn't a particularly profound question. But when it comes to your approach shot, it's easy to take the technology you use to figure it out for granted.


Bushnell bills itself as the “undisputed #1 laser rangefinder in golf,” and if you judge by counting the number of Bushnell's you see hanging from bags at any golf course, it's kind of hard to dispute.

Testers Wanted!

But are they really the best? We want your help to find out if Bushnell's new Tour V4 is a worthy soldier in the Bushnell lineup.


MyGolfSpy is looking for 5 avid and in-season golfers to test out (and keep) the new V4.   Three of you will test and review the standard Tour V4 model, and two will do the same with the Tour V4 Slope model. Put these things through your most demanding tests and let's see if they perform.

First â€“ if you haven't already, you must register for the MyGolfSpy Community Forum (click here to sign up).


Second â€“ please provide us with your name, home state/province and what, if any, yardage measuring device you use currently.


Good luck!

Man, I been skipping reviews. I been waiting to test something I could use and I know I could test well. And here it is. But, like Casey I'm out of season. I'd only play a few times from now till at least March. I do want this one bad though. I currently use the Swing by Swing app on my phone and find it pretty accurate. However, it was once up against a Bushnell last season and we had a difference of at least 20 yards. And he was hitting his shots short. I figured he had damaged his rangefinder at some point or maybe my app was off.

So, with all that said, I have to skip this review as well. Stupid Midwest weather. Good luck to all the year round nice weather people. As you are testing, just know I am jealous and you can laugh about it. We're all friends here.

Even though it's winter here, I'll be flying to Asia for 1 month golf vacation. Sun, beach and golf! That should work for the tests :)

Have been using a M400 from MG Golf for the last 3-4 years, but I think it's about to die :(

Would be awesome to test out the V4 Slope, as my Golfbuddy's battery just quit on me a few months back. Would like to see between laser and gps, which is best. Thank you for the opportunity!

I would be interesting to see how my GPS unit compares to a rangefinder!

Currently have a kind of generic brand rangefinder, it works, but not that great (hard to pick up flags).  Would love to compare it to a premium model like Bushnell

Have a heated range here, w/ many flags and objects (trees, etc..) that I can compare yardages

I've been using the Bushnell V2 since it first came out. I have really bad depth perception (right eye nearsighted, left eye farsighted). Rangefinders have been a Godsend. I no longer have to pace out short (20-40 yard shots).

Current using the Tour V2 and love the size and weight but would love to upgrade. Play all year round on a course with lots of uphill and downhill approach shots and tee shots sometimes up to 300 feet down so a slope version would certainly help.

Currently use a Bushnell 1500 series laser range finder for the last 8 years. Prior to to that, it was a Nixon that only lasted 2 years. Love the Bushnell, pretty durable (except the ocular piece which came off). Was looking to upgrade this coming year to a slope model to see if the yardages with slope really came into play versus the non-sloped with the manual calculations I did to compensate. Good luck to everyone entering!

Dang, I am a huge advocate for lasers but my course is crap right now and I don't play very often when it's below 50 anyway so not a good time for me. Had a Leupold GX-3i (stolen out of my bag at a driving range) and am using a Callawy (Nikon) RAZR now, plus the guy I play with the most has the Tour V3 which I use when I'm on his side of the cart. The V4 will have to be great to beat the GX-3i (my favorite I have used so far). Can't wait to hear the results as I plan to upgrade from my RAZR this Spring and the Leupolds are just too expensive. I bought my GX-3i on sale before they became popular. After it was stolen I looked to get another one and used ones on ebay were more than I paid for the one I had as they had become so popular.

Knowing that I can't guarantee I'll get regular rounds in (due to weather) during the testing period, I'll just wish the warmer weather guys good luck with this.   


And, I'll be following their testing very closely as I am in the market for a new rangefinder to compliment my GPS Golf Band

Currently use the yardage markers on the course, my feet, and The Grint app on my phone when service is available.

      Did a search and couldn't find anything on this topic, so excuse me if this has been brought up before.
      I'm having LCD issues with my rangefinder where the distances aren't displaying. The laser and jolt work just fine. But when a distance is supposed to appear, I either get nothing or maybe 1 bar that is supposed to be part of a number.
      It's the Bushnell TOUR V3. I bought it a little over a year ago. I've already contacted Bushnell CS. They were pretty short and not very helpful in both emails and over the phone. 
      From what I gather, even if I were to send the product in, it could take them up to 5 weeks to have it back in my hands and even then, it's not a guarantee that they could even fix it.
      So has anyone ever had this issue?
      And no, the rangefinder never got wet. I always keep it cased. I already changed the battery, left the battery out of it for 3 days, and have never dropped it.

      Bushnell Tour X Laser Rangefinder
      Admit it Rangefinder users - when you're on the course and realize you've left your rangefinder at home, or the batteries are dead, don't you feel kind of...adrift?  It's sorta like leaving home without your cell phone. It's a disconnected, unsettling untethered feeling...
      And if you're not a rangefinder guy and you feel disconnected, unsettled and untethered....well, that's what the MyGolfSpy Forum is for!
      It's also for Forum Member Reviews - and we're ready to kick off our next-to-last Forum Review of 2015.  We have a quartet of talented lads - our own "Fab Four," if you will, who'll be testing out The Bushnell Tour X Laser Rangefinder.
      Bushnell says this one is the "Ultimate," and we're hoping our testers will tell us if it's a bunch of marketing hokum or if it's the real deal.  Our boys are in the air, so keep checking this thread for updates!!!
      Here's the lineup:
