A laser rangefinder instantly works out distances for you. It can help you get over obstacles such as bunkers and water hazards.
A decent rangefinder can also help you get into an area of fairway of your choice. This is why I choose the Bushnell Tour V3 Jolt Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder. All you have to do is use the optical viewer to locate you target. Then simply press the spotter button and a distance of yards or meters will be shown on the LCD Display.
The Bushnell rangefinder works up to 1000 yards and as close as 5 yards. Not that any golf player would need this distance. With many golf courses now adding laser reflectors to their fag poles a laser rangefinder such as the Bushnell tour V3 Jolt is a great choice in gauging distances.
The Waterpoof Casing and Design FeaturesWith a waterproof outer casing and an ergonomically designed hand grip the Bushnell tour V3 Jolt sits very comfortable in a golfers hands.
SCAN ModeOne of the key points I liked most when I used this rangefinder was that the spotter allowed me to move around without giving false readings. This increased my confidence when working out distances as I knew the device was accurate. This technology is known as the SCAN mode which is perfect for scoping out any golf course terrain.
Pinseeker TechnologyThe Pinseeker Technology means you can spot flag poles from distances of 300 yards. I felt this was a great feature as I could spot flags from way beyond my normal playing distance.
How the Bushnell Tour V3 Jolt Golf Laser Rangefinder WorksThe Bushnell V3 Jolt Laser Rangefinder uses a class 1 laser which means it’s invisible to the human eye. The Laser basically works by bouncing back a light signal (laser) from your chosen spot, on board electronics then works out the distance and display it for you on the clear LCD screen.
I was pleasantly surprised at both the accuracy and comfort of the Bushnell Laser rangefinder. It’s great easy to use tool that serves its purpose extremely well.
