In fact, this was a higher-end course with reflectors on all the pins, and I was able to get yardages with just a laser or two. 

I still accidentally turned off slope twice, however. Still an issue there.

This is a big factor I think, must ask our club if they would consider doing this.

I turned slope ON accidentally, fortunately today was just a friendly.

If they push back on the cost - send them this link = they're pretty inexpensive . https://www.rrproducts.com/C6591/Golf-Course/Green-Area/Flagstick-Accessories

Hey guys, Just figured I post an update here.  If anyone has any questions drop us a line in here and one of us will respond!

I cleaned out my bag as my "last" round of the year was last week.  Anything after this point is a bonus for me with the next few weekends booked up and the inevitable "frost delays" start blocking out my ideal starting tee times.

I took out the NX9 HD and fired it at a few things around the yard when I noticed something... the battery meter has finally dropped down one bar.  Based on when the testing started I would say the battery life should be good for most poeple for the entire season.  Some guys who play 2-3 times a week will likely need an spare in the bag (you should have one in there anyway) but I have no complaints about the battery life on these units.

As I look forward to next season I have no doubt the NX9 HD will be there with me.  It performs wonderfully and looks as good as new after this season's use!

Great follow-up!

I found that my NX7 needed another battery this year; if you need a battery or just want a spare it is very easy to do and they come really quickly in the mail.

I got a spare just like @B.Boston suggested and it's in my bag in case I run out of juice on the course.

Got to go play today. My father-in-law was using my NX9 HD and i used my old Bushnell. The NX9 pulls distances so much faster and easier. Still loving it!

nice read MPR.  I guess we'll forgive you for the tardiness since the guys at HQ were literally throwing around your unit.  I would have been nervous as well! haha

I'm looking forward to using mine again this weekend.  We'll see where the battery is at, but I've got a spare ready to go.

My nx9 appears to have cratered. Ordered a new battery but it won’t pick up distances any more, just sits blank. Took out the battery as a means of resetting it and nothing.

Sent a note to precision pro, will see where it nets out.

Had to go buy a new one today, would not believe how dependent I have become to it.

My HD went bust - no data at all sent it back and had a replacement in less than a week. Great customer service.

I haven’t had any issues like that yet. I actually just had my first round where I couldn’t read the flag. It was in a moderate mist/light rain. Every other time I’ve gotten good readings.

Well unfortunately this did not go that well, was told I had to pay to ship back as I am from Canada , and really no certainty I’d get a new one back. I argued a bit and they agreed to pay for shipping but I’m somewhat stubborn and decided that the whole uncertainty aspect regarding repairs was a negative. I went shopping already for a new one.

Had a little fun with the NX9 at the range tonight. My son was aiming at a mound of dirt and wanted to know the distance. He started lasering the yardage markers and discovered a few things. The 50 and 100 yard markers were 3-4 yards further, the 150 marker was dead on, the 200 yard marker was 10 yards short, and the 275 yard marker was at 239! 

Rangefinders - use 'em at the range too in order to check and see if the signs are legit, heck it's right in the name!

I ALWAYS do this at the range haha.  It’s amazing some of the distances they come up with.  But I also get it’s hard when you have a wide area of tees.  

My uncle own’s a range and they just have flags out on the range and they put a chart in each hitting bay with approximate yardages to each one there.  It’s still not perfect but its within 5 yards.

I always do this at a natural grass range too. They slide the hitting areas forward and back to promote grass growth in worn areas which then changes up the flag distances

So this last page here has been kind of a downer, as several people have reported issues with their NX9s and had to contact @PrecisionProGolf for repairs or replacement.

I have to add myself to that list. A couple weeks back, I pulled out my NX9 on a hole, shot the flag—and nothing happened. The screen was on, the battery indicator was full, but no matter how many times I hit the button or tried changing modes, it wouldn't report a yardage. (This was after it worked earlier in the round, with no drops or anything in between.) And like several others here, there was now a rattle in the device itself if shaken gently.

So I got in touch with Precision Pro for two reasons: one, because I needed my own NX9 to be fixed, and two, because I wanted to find out if our experiences here were common or a coincidence of small sample size.

Like the other US users, I found Precision Pro very willing to cover the shipping for my return and to get my rangefinder back to me. I sent it out on June 22; I got a tracking number for the one coming back my way on June 30. That's good stuff.

On the other question: a representative of PP confirmed that the part coming loose internally was an issue with the earliest batch of NX9s (if I recall correctly, we got ours almost before they went on sale). He says that that defect has been fixed.

So I'm still happy with my original review: this is a great rangefinder, and Precision Pro seems to be a company that is willing to stand behind their products. Looking forward to getting mine back in hand and on the course!
