Precision Pro R1 Smart Rangefinder


Recommended Posts

This just came up on the main page and talk about data. The ability to get Trackman/Quad numbers and then enter in the launch angle, and speeds is just another level, even a bit more than Arcoss which is already doing the environmental data for their smart caddy yardages then applied to average club distance. Would be interested to see if this data allows them to recommend even more club for a high launch/high spin player hitting into the wind? This is the mental math that many of us estimate as best we can or not depending on how much we think about this data. This should make you feel confident about the club you take if you have all this entered. Even the simple environmental data adjustments are great, and something that I think given shot dispersion patterns is enough to make sure you have the right club in most cases.

Any other thoughts, is this just too much data for you to crunch. Worth the extra money, though Precision Pro range finders tend to be less expensive.

I read the first look article and thought that it sounded very cool, but I love tech items like this.  It would be really interesting to see how accurate the calculations are.   Wind, temp, and weather conditions were a recent topic that my golf coach and I discussed.   The only thing missing would be to actually maintain the yardages you hit the clubs like Arccos.

The audible alert you get for leaving your rangefinder is definitely plus and the weather information has me intrigued.

Well that was really interesting.  from the Instagram teaser and the shape of it I was expect more of a Garmin-like model with the GPS built in and viewable through the viewfinder.  Which we kind of get with the front/middle/back readings.  I was not expecting something with as much input at this.  Could be really cool.  But with Arccos Caddie already working for me I'm not sure how different the results would be.  

Hopefully this will end up being a test opportunity for members.  I'm still using my NX-9 HD from member tests almost 2 years ago now.  It would be really cool to see how much difference all that data input can make, or just generally how well the GPS/Laser combo works for folks.

I agree that most likely if you have Arcoss the added data you can enter won't make it worth it, but Arcoss if you don't get sensors free is about 200 to start then 100 a year from there while this is the flat rate 320 up front for as long as you use the item. Might be worth it for those that do not want Arcoss but where going to get a new range finder anyway as noted in the article the price is lower than many range finders on the market without these features.

But this isn’t Arcoss like.  arcoss actually captures distances and makes recommendations based on how you actually hit the ball.   This you simply enter you distance and it will recommend based on the single value you provide.    
 

at least that is my interpretation.  
 

 

edit: went and looked at the app description and it does apparently have the ability to track average distances.  Even more interesting now.

I've been looking at different apps or devices that allow more data on my game.  I want to start diving in more at what is costing me strokes.  Ofcourse I have a general idea, but the level of specificity on each part of your game and strokes gained statistics are just amazing.  

This seems like it could get you some of those things and also as a current precision pro owner, I was considering an upgrade as I really like a few of the newer features.

I have the Arccos caddie as well and would interested in seeing what additional information I could get.  Looks interesting.

At my ability, sometimes I feel like too much info might be a bad thing. My brain is the biggest detriment to my game. I think all the available info is really cool, but just not for me.

Yeah, I wonder how much of it will have to do with the app vs on the device.  Might be a bit of work going between the two to tell it what club you used and where you're hitting from, etc.  It looks like we need to get a good demo of it in action, but I applaud @PrecisionProGolf for thinking outside the viewfinder and adding some features and enhancements I haven't seen elsewhere yet.

Generally yeah, it's probably overkill.  But this could be cool/useful information if you're a frequent golf traveler and go and play at several different climate/elevations. 

It would be nice to have a better Idea of what distances I should expect from going from playing here in MA versus going out to someplace like Denver where the elevation should play a significant factor on the distance.

If you're playing the same courses frequently it would be less useful as you'd be used to those general conditions.

I didn't see a mention of this, but how much of this is within the rules of golf?  I know it has  the slide to turn off slope, do we lose all the other adjustments at that point to?  

I think Arccos caddie can use data from when the round started, but can't refresh or get current winds during the round.  Although I have not tried Tournament mode with it so I'm not 100% there.

I already reached out about trading in my NX9 slope for this. 🙂  Just so all you PP users know, you can get 30% off w/ their trade in program! Take advantage!!

I also downloaded the app and it's already pretty awesome without the new rangefinder!

I have been using Arccos caddie and it’s calculations for wind are really good! Issue is it doesn’t capture slope, so I love the idea of having all of this captured by one device. I’m definitely going to look at getting one, selling my Nikon to help pay for it.

Isn’t technology great.  I played this game when 6700 yards was long for most courses. We didn’t have yardage books or yards marked in the fairway.  We played by sight and feel. We walked because there wasn’t carts.  But life goes on and we must accept change.  What a great game this is.

Love this. I grew up the same! "Where's the 150 marker?" and everything was just worked off from there. At the course I grew up playing, they just planted bushes (as many other courses have done) at 150 just so you knew. 

I personally, while I love this tech, ALSO love a good yardage book. There's something about being able to use analog paper and pencil that appeals to me in a BIG way.

Sounds like a giant waste of time and money to me. In my experience range finders slow down pace of play for all types of players. I am a hacker. (16). For me and those like me the front, middle and back yardage on my GPS watch are plenty of information. And when In doubt, grab the extra club right? And I swear that none of the 3s 4s or 5s I have ever played with hit their numbers nearly often enough to justify the extra 90 seconds they would spend fiddling with one of these 18 to 24 times a round. Sewing clothing none of you really good players want to see me wait for the green to clear when I'm 230 yards out and none of us hacks want to see you fiddle throwing grass up in the air and trying to figure out the difference between two or three yards either you're not playing for money you don't need the numbers that accurate and you sure don't need temperatures and wind speeds and slopes and relative humidity and God knows what else. Play the freaking game

Courses I play aren’t well marked anymore. Trust me it’s much faster for me to hit the laser while my playing partners hit and it is for me to find the nearest marker and figure out how far I think I am. 

However, I agree that a GPS watch can be faster if you just want middle locations. 

I’m no pro, but my club selection and swing are going to be different for a 100 yard or 110 yard shot.  And if I execute, I’ll take 3-4 less shots in the round to slow everyone down.
