I don't sign up for the reviews except for the products that really excite me.  I have been pondering a new rangefinder from Bushnell.  I currently have a really inexpensive laser rangefinder (I won't mention any names)....and it gets the job done, but it doesn't seem to coincide perfectly with the numbers my buddies get using their Bushnell rangefinders and it is tricky sometimes to hit the flag.  Also, it is very easy to get my finger in the way of the laser.  Joe from Syracuse NY would love to test one against his current rangefinder to see if there is a big difference.

My name is Keith August, and I'm a golfaholic

I live in coastal NC


I don't currently use a rangefinder. I tried one, about 15 or so years ago, and when I measured a flag in a scramble tournament, I sent an 8-iron about 25 yards over the green into a tree.


I would love the opportunity to test one of these bad boys out, and give my non-biased feedback.


And, happy holidays, everyone!


(now, to the cookies and coffee, offered at these Golfaholics Anonymous meetings)

Golf...a game you can't win


But, you can hate it & enjoy it at the same time

I've been using the Swing by Swing (upgraded Looper version) smart phone GPS app for several years. I have found it to be fairly reliable, but have never compared it to a range finder and would love to be able to do so.

Currently have a Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 which I have given to my 13 year old son and use a Bushnell Tour V2 Slope Edition for myself.  Love the slope for practice rounds in major tournaments that I play in.

Okay you guys have to help me out.  I have two problems.  The first is that I happen to be partially blind in my right eye and I am a right handed golfer.  I play to a 14 handicap but my biggest struggles have always been centered around gauging distance.  I have used App based GPS systems like SkyCaddie but always found them to be a mixed bag.  I have better luck with playing the same course over and over and gaining local knowledge that way.   The second problem I have is that I live in the great state of New Hampshire and all courses in my area are currently under 3-8 inches of snow with ore coming tonight and this weekend.  I won't be playing golf again, unless I win a contest that takes me to a warmer climate until April but if it were possible to test the machines out at that time I would be all over it.

I have an older Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 that works great once I readjusted the laser. I like the magnification of the rangefinder and the clarity of the image but don't always get the right yardage the first time. Would like to see if the newer one can get it right the first time with similar visuals as mine

Have used a Nikon laser many years ago, found it accurate but hard to hold on target.  Have owned several Sonocaddies over the years but recently switched to a Garmin G6. 


Would be very interested in trying another rangefinder, especially with slope capability as many courses in Michigan have elevation changes.


I play between 50-60 rounds per year.
