Testers ANNOUNCED! Precision Pro NX9 HD Rangefinder

Recommended Posts

Jonathan, Jacksonville, FL

Currently no rangefinder, used them a ton back when I played college golf and played more competitively.

I've owned a Bushnell Pinseeker 1500, Bushnell Tour V2, and Bushnell Tour V3.

I use a GPS watch and a range finder.

Using shot scope GPS Tracker (excellent) and an old Bushnell pin seeker.  Range finder gives me distance to pin.  GPS gives front and back of green so I know where to land the shot (where the greatest room for error is.)

I've used over a dozen hand held rangefinders over the last 15-20 years. I've also given a fair amount of attention to three of the top watch gps Maker's over the last 5 years.  Personally I prefer the accuracy of a hand held gos unit opposed to any of the watches I have tried. The difference of 3-6 feet can mean the difference of breaking par or trying to break 75. Plus depending on where I am playing in some of the more humid climates I find a watch to be more of a neusence then anything during my swing.  Half the time I've even taken it off and attached it to my bag.  This is how I've ended up always having a hand held unit in my bag.  Especially with a couple key options I seem to trust in have to include pin seeker and automatic slope adjustment. This just gives me that much more confidence when selecting my club and shot type.

Currently use old entry level Bushnell from like 5+ years ago. Has difficulty picking up a stick without reflectors, etc. Would love to try a new cost effective range finder!

Currently use 18 Birdies app, yardage markers/eye balling and “feel” (Yes this one is mostly a joke - but some days a club up if I haven’t been feeling like I have been hitting far enough). My local muni course also has GPS in the carts which is very handy. But I walk so I normally ask my partners for a distance read. (Only rangefinder I’ve ever used has been the players in my group - I play with much more wealthy players than I am and they have the fancy gadgets)

I'd love NOTHING MORE than to try the next gen rangefinder from Precision Pro. The NX7 is the best I've ever used HANDS DOWN!!!

I currently use my Android phone and SwingU for GPS (but it kills my phone pretty fast -- I need to upgrade my phone!)

I have been researching rangefinders, and, thanks to the timely MGS Most Wanted Rangefinders of 2019 article, I had narrowed down my choices to the Nikon CoolShot Pro Stabilized, the Garmin Z80, the Bushnell Hybrid and the Precision Pro NX9 (The Nikon is the frontrunner) . I was just trying to find a reason to pull the trigger on the purchase. 

One of the things holding me back is that I am still relatively new to the game (21 Handicap), and I'm not sure that a rangefinder is going to improve my score much. However, several people I golf with say that the simple knowledge of your distance to the target is a huge boost in confidence. One of my playing partners even has an older model Nikon (the CoolShot 20) and I was paired with her, and she used it to give me distances. That day, I shot my best round ever -- 92 (legitimate, no gimmes, no mulligans). So I am now sold on getting a rangefinder. I am therefore extremely hopeful to be picked for this particular honor.

I purchased the NX-7 Pro, based-on the MGS review. It's a very serviceable rangefinder that does as-advertised.

Yes, I have a handful of times when it read '58 yards' when I'm standing near the 150-yard placard in the fairway 😞

Would appreciate testing the NX-9 & have the 'current' model to base it against

I have both GPS/stat tracking device and rangefinder

I currently use Game Golf pro to track shots and stats, and use a Bushnell Hybrid rangefinder on course for distances.

Haven't pulled plug on a rangefinder yet ($$$) but do still use an older Garmin Approach S2 watch every round.

Would love to thoroughly test this out!

I use a Bozily range finder, the cheapest one on amazon and apparently it is not tournament legal.
