Best Golf Rangefinders of 2014

Golf Rangefinders are generally compact units that can find a distance to the green, the flag or any hazard standing in your way with the push of a button. Many now feature a locking capability to ensure that you are getting an accurate reading that you can trust. Different from GPS units in that you pick the target visually and find the distance to it, rather than relying on satellite information, or course recognition.

Bushnell 2014 Tour V3 Patriot Pack

The Bushnell Tour V3 Laser Rangfinder sets the bar very high with its design, performance and feel. Featuring a 5x magnification scope and ranging up to 1000 yards, the Tour V3 also has JOLT technology, giving the user short vibrating bursts when locking on to the flag. The ergonomic design and rubber grip ensure that you will be able to hang on to it comfortably in all conditions. Accurate to within one yard and legal for tournament play, the V3 Tour is a must-have for any serious golfer.

Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt

The Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt is the most compact, technologically advanced rangefinder available. Featuring JOLT technology, which gives feedback when locking on to the flag via short vibrating bursts, you’ll be assured of the accuracy every time. Second generation E.S.P. technology provides accuracy to within ½ a yard when you’re anywhere from 5-125 yards away. Improved light transmission provides more brightness while the Vivid Display Technology provides a crystal clear view. Waterproof, tournament-legal, and equipped with a 6x magnification scope, the Z6 is essential for tour players and club champions.

Leupold GX-4i²

This small and rugged rangefinder offers the best of both worlds when it comes to technology and durability. Smart Key Technology now allows the GX-4i² to conform to tournament standards, while the PinHunter 2 Laser technology allows you to lock in on the pin from 400 yards away and other targets from as far away as 800 yards. Featuring a one-touch scan mode and Prism lock technology, this unit will beep and the display will freeze as soon as you scan past a prism-topped flag stick, guaranteeing accurate distances. Weatherproof equipped and fog mode enabled, the Leupold GX-4i² is ideal in any condition.

Leupold GX-3i²

Powered by Leupold’s DNA engine and featuring PinHunter 2 Laser technology, the Leupold GX-3i² also comes equipped with Prism Lock technology.

Weatherproof and accurate to within 1 foot from up to 400 yards away, the Leupold GX-3i² can also find distances of hazards up to 800 yards out.

LaserLink XL 1000

The LaserLink XL 1000 is the first rangefinder that they’ve designed that allows you to hold it to your eye, rather than peer down the scope from a distance. AccuFLAG mode will identify the closest target in order to grab a correct reading, no matter what background is behind the flag. The waterproof design and 6x magnification make the XL 1000 an excellent choice for any golfer. Because it measures in distances only, the XL 1000 is tournament legal and conforms to both USGA and R&A rules. Indispensible and accurate from 5-300 yards for any flag, and 5-1000 yards for other targets, the XL 1000 is a golfers best friend from any distance.
