TESTERS ANNOUNCED! SKYCADDIE SX400 GPS

I typically find my yardage mark on sprinkler heads and paced off if course doesn’t have cart gps. After accounting for other variables such as wind and elevation, by guessing or tossing up some grass, I select my club and proceed.

Every new advancement in technology in the game of golf I see as a positive. The game is challenging enough, so anything to save a stroke or two by having the most information available to the player, so they can make the best possible decision only makes sense.

I know most yardages at my home course and when I play away I use sprinkler heads, or similar markers, in-cart gps if they have it, or sometime a yardage book (preferred) if available. 

I think this kind of technology is fine, but I am not a fan of high tech ball striking equipment, such as adjustable drivers and developments that make shots longer and or straighter.  I also don’t have much use for launch monitors - give me a grass driving range with clearly marked yardage targets any day.

I use a Leupold GX3i which has been very reliable and accurate though not many features.  I all about technology and I am never without it.  It’s extremely valuable to establish a good measurement for our club distances to make us more accurate and better golfers.  Guessing distances is a good way to mess with your game.

There are far more people out there still using flip-phones than one might think. Call them traditionalists or Luddites, there's always a contingent happy to eschew technological advancements in favor of a more orthodox approach.

In golf parlance, this group tends to be feel players and might be overheard describing a shot as " a three-fingered 7-iron."

That aside, the merits of distance-measuring devices can't be ignored and if you've been looking for a reason to experience it first-hand, this might be just the opportunity.

Would love to try this Sky Caddie, currently using an older model Bushnell that is pretty bulky and heavy, probably at least 8 yrs old.

These new devices are so good for golf, speed up our play immensely. 

Thank You,

Rocky Walker

I already have 2 devices. One is a bushnell watch which is primarily used. My other is a golf buddy range finder, which is backup (I tend to forget to charge watch) or on par 3’s or where certain hazards come into play. Also most of my buddies also have devices. It would be interesting to see how close they are. 
as far as technology is concerned, It’s the user and the time taken.

Use a Garmin G10 currently along with a buddies laser. They are close but don’t agree most of the time.

Tech, subliminal programming, voodoo - whatever helps me score better is welcome!

I have been using a SkyCaddie SG-5 for a 7 years. I download and update all the courses I play, both in Canada and the US. My winter home is in Goodyear AZ, and I summer in the Niagara Region of Ontario.

I am very interested because I plan to replace my SG-5 soon. We also have Garmin and Bushell watches that my wife wears.
