OFFICIAL FORUM MEMBER REVIEW - PRECISION PRO NX7 LASER RANGEFINDER

Recommended Posts

Thanks! :) I am very excited to test this! My stage two review is going to be a bit more indepth. I was even thinking of taking the unit apart to see what it looked like inside and taking photos of it, lol.

If you do take it apart let me know how easy it is. I have a hair or something i can see everytime I look through it and cant seem to get rid of it!

Oh lord

 

I could see the aftermath of that. A puzzled MDHacker sitting around wondering where everything goes back into. Ha

Ha ha ha, you know there are ALWAYS extra parts after reassembling electronics! :)

Strange that a hair would get into the optical system. Did you check the eyepiece to see if something is there? I'm pretty sure it's a sealed system. Or check the optics in the front and make sure there isn't a scratch on the lens. Use the lens cleaning cloth to wipe the ocular piece and front lens and see if that solves the issue.

I'll try and see if it's there. Maybe I'll get some canned air and try to blast it out of there.

Just add some more info here...

 

dont have any photo.

 

I recently purchased this and I really like it.

 

First couple rounds with NX7 Pro was little hard because I have little shaky hand.

 

Over time I got used to using it and found out best arm position for less shaky... lol

 

It is bit slow but not that slow.

 

I think this is really accurate for price.

 

I had problem with estimating distance with my eyes, so I usually hit longer than I had to.

 

With this NX7 pro, I am not hitting long anymore.

 

because I am not that great player so I dont hit exact distance everytime but my play got way better.

 

Before with this device I was 25+ handicap

 

now I am ~20.

 

One thing I dont like

I think it is due to casing tolerance, dust and dirt often get stuck between lens and green casing.

 

I use canned compressed air(?) thing to blow dust and dirt and then wipe it with included cleaning cloth.

I noticed this as well. Here is a crappy photo of what im talking about. I tried canned air, and cleaning the lens and still it wont go away or move for that matter. Im going to email precision pro tomorrow morning and see what they have to say.

Schnergun:

Did you try and remove the ocular piece? I haven't had time to look at it to see if it comes off.

Based on the MyGolfSpy testing, I recently purchased the lower priced Precision Pro Nexus.  Similar to what you guys are testing, (obviously) with 400 yd range as well.  So far, I'm extremely pleased.  It does not have the scan mode, nor is it advertised as weather resistant.  One major difference is the case.  The "Pro" looks like it has a pretty decent case, minus the carabiner issue you've already discussed.  The Nexus, on the other hand, has a soft case that is kind of ill fitting, with only a magnetic closure that I'm frankly a little skeptical of.  However, at a $149 price point, it's a pretty decent unit.

The case makes a huge difference. No need to unzipped the case and I feel pretty secure that it won't come unhitched (and I've gone over some bumpy terrain.

Just heard from Precision Pro. They are sending me a new range finder. They believe it's on the interior optical lens and there's no way to clean it. Great customer service!

Nice intro and beginning SC!  I'm using mine just about every round, in conjunction with my Garmin X40.

      Precision Pro has folowed up it's NX7 rangefinder a Most Wanteed Wnner for Value with the NX9 HD.  Offering all the same technology from the previous version but enhanced HD optics take this price friendly range finder to a new level where it competes with some of the biger name brands. 
      Precisionn Pro has provided the following testers all with the NX9 HD to test out on the range, on the course and any other interesting place they may decide to put it to work.
      Follow along as they will be sharing their thoughts via a Stage 1 post in the next couple of days, then participating in an ongoing dialouge about their experiences, and wrapping up with a comprehensive Stage 2 post. 
      Testing the NX9 HD are the following members.

      TESTERS ANNOUNCED!
      Who are the seven forum users that the NX9 has locked on for testing?
      @FromRightToLeft @Jbmullin @russtopherb @B.Boston @poprocksncoke @JonMUSC08 @perseveringgolfer @GolfSpy MPR Full announcement found here.
      Testers Wanted (7)
      Anyone that has read or better yet tried one of the previous versions of the Precision Pro rangefinders knows a couple things for sure.   The company is very customer oriented, responding to any manor of questions promptly and efficiently.   It's very first iteration of range finders—nexus- was among the least expensive on the market, but didn't  meet with a huge success.   Enter the NX7 series, and it's award winning performance in Most Wanted testing, and Precision Pro had a winner on it's hand, a very reliable, accurate rangefinder priced in the $200 to $250 range, with many comprable competitors sellingn for $350 to $450.   Precision Pro held it's own in the land of the established icon brands. 
      So with a product firmly entrenched in the value category, Precision Pro is introducing the next level of rangefinder for company.  The NX9 offers an HD display to an already quality product.   To find out all the tech behind it, you can read The First Look articles published earlier this spring Precision Pro Nx9 First Look
      So  we are offering seven US or members from anywhere in the world, the chance to test/review and keep a NX9 HD rangefinder.  Golfspy_MPR  will  be riding shotgun along with the testers on this as you, write a very through review for the forum, and provide ongoing thoughts during the review period in the review thread. 
      How To Apply
      Please provide the following information in a separate post----DO NOT  QUOTE or COPY THIS POST!
      First Name/City of Residence.
      Do you currently use a rangefinder or GPS for distance measuring or rely on good old eyeballing!
      If you use a device what model and brand
      We'll be selecting the testers next week.  Be sure to check back and see if you've been selected.

      Seen a couple youtube videos about the approach G80 from Garmin , highly touted as the first 2 in 1 launch monitor and range finder,  any one have or tried one?
      Steep price tag but I have been looking for a decent range finder , could kill 2 birds here.
