"Golf" vs. "Hunting" rangefinder

Is there really a difference between the two? Seems to me the tech would be the same. Local store has a Nikon 1000i "hunting" rangefinder with slope for $179. I like Nikon and all my hunting glass is Nikon.

I use a hunting rangefinder as well as gps(for when I’m in the woods and can’t see the green lol). The biggest problem with my rangefinder is it won’t pick up the flag so I always shoot the front of the green. I’m hoping to pick up a golf one this year with pin seeker tech in it. To me that is the only thing mine is missing. To be honest though I only paid $60 for mine so a higher price one may be different.

My buddy was using his Nikon and couldn’t pick up the pin with his either.

The first rangefinder I ever had was for hunting. I thought it worked well until I realized that most of the time I was hitting trees with it instead the flag itself. Highly recommend golf specific rangefinders with some kind of pin seeker technology. Also, highly recommend getting one with slope that can be turned on and off, especially if you are a competitive golfer playing in tournaments.

Have to be able to turn off Slope otherwise it cannot be used in competition. I bought a cheap Chinese knockoff that has pinseeker and for $99 it is brilliant.
