Stroker mentioned it already but the golf buddy voice is great. Under $90 new in box. Clips on your hat or belt. Push a button and it tells you distance to front middle back, you can measure distance of shots, no annual fees and I haven't played a course that isn't already loaded. Highly recommend this unit.

I actually clip mine to the velcro strap on my golf glove. I don't always wear a hat or belt, and usually don't take my glove off during a round. Can't even feel it, but it's right there. Not a fan of wearing a watch while playing, but my golfbuddy works essentially the same.

I'm a dual use guy.... GPS and LRF.

I'm currently using a Garmin G10. It's a GPS unit about the size of a matchbook. I wanted a less expensive GPS after my Skycaddy crapped out. F-M-B is really all this unit does and that I care for.

Just last week I purchased a Precision Pro NX7. The one with slope and vib. Haven't had a chance to try it but I have high expectations it will beat the previous el cheapo models I've owned.

I only paid $188 through Amazon.

I see that was last September....Great deal as they are much more today.

Another vote for mggolf.com
Value and quality can't be beat. You think you don't want a fancy laser with slope but for $100 you might consider it.
Hat tip to [mention=156]fozcycle[/mention] for telling me about them.


And when the display went haywire, they offered to replace it. I paid an extra $25 and got the upgrade for the model with slope and side display. Awesome customer service from MG Golf.

For those of you with the MG 600s.  When using pin seeking mode how consistent is the result when you shoot the flags multiple times from the same spot?   I have played 2 rounds with mine and the yardage is more inconsistent than I would like.    The range can be up to about 5 yards but typically 3 or under.  About 50% of the time it will get the same number two times in a row.   It would be nice if the difference was just one yard with back to back readings but it is often more.  In no way am I a player good enough to worry about 3 to 5 yards but it still bothers me.  Could I have received a bad unit?

I think that might be a common issue with any range finder. I have Pinned ‘The Pearl’ range finder. I typically shoot it three times and take the number that was given to me twice. Sometimes it will give you one that is a bit off from the two consistent ones.

Perhaps that is just par for the course.

Thanks for the reply.  I ended up sending the MG rangfinder back and getting a Percision NX7 Slope.  I have not had time to play golf using the new one but hope it is better.

I've used the Precision Pro quite a bit and love it. Great product and superior customer service.

They do have great customer service.  I purchased my device just a few days before they ran the $40 off special over the weekend.  I inquired if they would give me the sale price and the refund was almost instantly processed.  Nice to deal with a company like that.

Thanks for the kind words, we are always happy to do stuff like that. We all have been on that end and it's always a bummer to miss a sale by a day or 2 so we are happy to honor that sale price.

 

We are offering up to $40 off our NX7 series of rangefinders through Fathers Day.

Yeah I can see battery being an issue for you. Newer phones are more battery efficient.

Buy a power bank.  Walmart has a couple of options for less than $10 with enough capacity to fully charge most phones.  Its not the most convenient option if you pocket carry your phone though.  If you can make it through nine holes on a full charge, the power bank should get you through the second nine.

Very accurate.....I have checked it with other lasers in my foursome.
