Precision Pro Rangefinders

On the second round with the NX7, it had a lot more trouble picking up the flag. There were 3-5 holes I had to shoot the flag about a half dozen times to get it. Though I will say that this course has some landscaping and bushes close to the back of some greens. It's only 2 rounds so I'm going to keep going and I'm not overly concerned as lots of finders pick up trees.

I have owned the NX7 non slope for over a year. I love it. Everything good that is said I agree. I tried my friends Leupold and could not get a reading. I am 68 years old with not the steadiest of hands. I was going to buy the Nikon with stabilization until I read a review of the NX7 and how easy it was to get the target. I tried it and have not looked back. It is fabulous. I play about 75 rounds a year and just got my free replacement batteries, no hassle. Great rangefinder and great company.

I bought an NX7 Pro (slope) a couple months ago and it’s really useful, my first rangefinder, but it took a while to get the hang of it. The biggest challenge is avoiding picking up background. I glance at GPS first so I have some idea what the distance should be. I sweep the pin back and forth down low. If that doesn’t work, I sweep back and forth on the flag itself, that almost always works. I was on a course with yellow pins and lots of trees in the background Fri, which was tough - so it took a couple tries to get the distance. I have no idea if the big name brands at twice the cost work better. I do know using a rangefinder has saved me a couple strokes a round. GPS is dead on some times, but it’s as much as 20 yards off some times which is a BIG miss on approach shots. Best $219 I’ve spent on golf in a long time (thanks MGS).

I thought I was the only person with this issue. I have used GolfLogix for years and bought this based on the recommendations. I still love it but getting used to mine,

I used to swear by GPS, and it’s all you need on some courses. But if the underlying course waypoint files aren’t right, the readings will be off. *** GPS was great on my old regular course, but way off on some holes on my now regular course. Now that I have both GPS and a rangefinder and play a new course almost every week, I see GPS isn’t consistent - even after accounting for pin positions. And I’ve found the GPS hazards feature can be misleading for hazards that are diagonal, e.g. a water hazard that’s 180 yds right and 240 yds left.

*** Not positive but I think most if not all GPS devices use third party course data files (e.g. Garmin > CourseView, Bushnell > iGolf, ? > GolfBert API), they aren’t proprietary to manufacturers or devices. GPS accuracy depends on how good your device is at picking up nearby satellites which does vary between makes/models BUT that doesn’t help if the underlying waypoint files aren’t accurate - some definitely aren’t.

I’ve noticed sometimes being off by 5 yards or more. That affects my club selection. Within 180 yards are my confidence yards. So if it reads 170, but my range finder shows 157. That’s a club difference. TBH, I’m not great at Golf, but I do want to beat my personal best each time out.

Not to belabor the point, but it’s course specific. My old regular course the GPS data must have been accurate as GPS was always right based on dozens of rounds there. I moved to another regular course a year ago, and some holes are spot on, some are 10 to 20 yards off, which makes approach shot club selection problematic. And I’ve noticed my GPS and rangefinder is off on some holes when I play other courses. And yes, I am taking pin position into account as GPS shows front, middle and back. You never know when GPS will be right or wrong or by how much...until after you hit.

I'm bumping this because my battery died in my @PrecisionProGolfNexus rangefinder the other day, and I went onto their website and ordered a replacement battery.  I've had this product for several years now and still swear by it.  The lifetime battery replacement from the company is a huge difference to me.  Spot on laser with distance, and even better value of a product with the free battery replacement.  Probably the best club in my bag, as it never fails me.
