It used to be there was a Snake River Canyon-sized gap between the big-name laser rangefinders and the so-called budget rangefinders. Both would give you distance, but dollars would buy you more features, sharper optics and greater accuracy.
You can still spend an arm, a leg and most of your uvula on a big-name rangefinder, but the gap is shrinking. Cincinnati-based Precision Pro Golf has been a leader in what some have called value lasers, but even that label doesn't fit anymore. And Precision Pro thinks its newest offerings can rival the big names in all areas of performance.
Testers Wanted:Precision Pro is introducing two new rangefinders this spring, the NX7 and the NX7 Pro. Precision Pro says both models are 25% smaller and 30% faster than last year's Nexus models, and the NX7 is the first Precision Pro rangefinder with Adaptive Slope and Pulse Vibration technology. In addition, the company says both NX7's feature a 400 yard range, 6X magnification and are accurate to =/- 1 yard.
And both feature a lifetime - yes, a lifetime - free battery replacement program.
But are they really comparable to the big-name rangefinders? We need four of you to test them and find out.
How To Apply:
We are looking for four avid golfers to test and review (and keep) the new offerings from Precision Pro: two will review the standard NX7 and two will review the NX7 Pro with Adaptive Slope Technology.
