Thought I would share a quick review on the Precision Pro Golf NX7 Pro Rangefinder. I was looking to add a rangefinder this year but I didn't want to spend a ton of money on my first one. This one might be good enough to be my first and last. As a starter, I paid $179.99 for the rangefinder. This was with a $20 coupon or 10% off. I thought that was a pretty good price for what seemed to be a pretty good device (based on reviews). Here are some pictures of the device and the carrying case hanging on my golfbag. So, I also included a picture of the cards that came in the box. One to highlight that they give free battery replacements and two - I thought one othe other cards was cool. It was a little tutorial on the proper way to use the device. I know, seems obvious enough...... aim and click until it vibrates. All true, but it did mention scanning across the flag which seems to help. Anyway, to the point of the review......

I have used the rangefinder on my home course now for 5 rounds. The accuracy is there and it is very easy to use. You do simply align and push on a button on the top (green), it vibrates and gives you the yardage. If you have the slope on it gives you the adjusted yardage in the bottom right corner. The device itself appears to be robust yet light in weight. Not too light - meaning it is easy to hold steady and get a hit on any target. I shot it on bunkers, bushes, trees and even a bird house just checking it out early on. (We have bird houses at 150 yards from the greens on our course). The carrying case is legit and it comes with all you need to snap it on to your bag. I have played this course for close to 30 years, so it was very interesting to compare my learned knowledge on slope versus the actual measurement. It's amazing to see the actual number and know that even though a hole looked flat and you learned over the years to hit one extra club. Then to shoot it and realize it is about 8-10 yards uphill. Pretty cool. It does give you a lot of confidence to confirm some of that and then know you are pulling the correct stick. I'm eager to play with it on a course that I don't know very well.

The only negative I can think of is the lack of a magnet to allow for you to stick it on the cart. Easy enough to drop it in the cupholder though for an easy grab.  

I hope if you are looking for an affordable rangefinder that you find this review helpful.

Thanks for the review. I am looking at getting a range finder and not sure where to and what to get.  I have one I use now but its more for hunting than golf. I find my current one is really hard to catch the flag which makes sense to me as this isn't the purpose for the type I have. I am a GPS guy on the course but have come to find I am liking the range finder a bit more. One big reason is my eyesight has diminished that I need reading glasses to read my GPS. I don't like having to put them on and off for every shot especially for finding yardage to hazards or or just a random yardage to the middle of the fairway when I'm in the trees. 

 

Thanks again, if you have an update on this unit, I'm interested in knowing how it's been with a few months use and durability.

You'll find a number of posts here  on the Precision Pro line including an 'Official Test' a couple of years back. I've had the NX9 or what use to be called the HD for a few years (wider optics and a magnet). So far it's performed flawlessly. Lots of members here have commented on the great customer service. In addition I like the free battery replacement. Since I play 150+ rounds a year - that saves me about $10/yr.

I'm actually one of the testers from the NX-7 Precision Pro testing group from 6 or 7 years ago.  I still use it to this day so durability isn't an issue.  I don't play anywhere near the rounds @tony@CIC does, but it's a nice option to have if the battery starts to wear down to get a free battery from Precision Pro. The display is still bright and it hasn't had any issues what so ever.

Update - I used it all last fall and winter. Played several rounds already this year and it is still working like a champ! No issues. The other comments from the testers matches what I have seen.

It is a good thing it comes with a life time battery warranty because mine keeps draining the battery every 7-8 rounds…

otherwise it is good for the price point

That's surprising. I played 50+ rounds last year and got 5 rounds this season before putting in a new battery on mine.
