I'm scoping out the Tour V2. I may have to wait though since I'll have to request this for Christmas.

I am using a local companies range finder, works great and is much less costly than Bushnell and others. $160 USD

The original question was Bushnell or Leupold. In researching laser range finders, I found that Leupold has less complaints about reliability - particularly versus earlier model Bushnells. But, they are also generally more expensive. I guess you get what you pay for.

In terms of GPS versus Laser Range Finders, my update is I'm still in limbo. I have a Skycaddie SG2.5 that is sitting in a drawer more out of protest than anything else. I know I should use it or sell it, but I haven't made up my mind yet.

Funds not withstanding, I'd love to go with a Leupold - even an older model. But, I just can't do that right now. Overall, if I look at things realistically, I've been playing without either for a couple of months now and haven't missed it too much. About half of the courses I've played have onboard GPS that I've been able to bum readings off of (even if I'm walking usually somebody in my group is playing cart golf). The other times I've relied on old fashioned sprinkler head yardage, course knowledge or local knowledge.

So I'm thinking this is more of a luxury rather than a necessity. I can wait and make a decision later or ask for a Leupold for Christmas in the off-season.

I'm looking at getting a Laser Range Finder with slope, but I'm wondering if there are major differences between the Bushnell 1500 and the Bushnell 1600. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I was just looking at https://www.golfclubs.com/ and the Leupold GX-3 got a great review. Now I'm thinking about buying it as well !

    Thanks! I've been on the email list for years and often read the forums for information or just to confirm what I think I know. I haven't bothered to sign up as I didn't think I had anything useful to add. Probably still don't.
