Golf Rangefinders

25 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive ($100-$175) rangefinder. My dad has an awesome Leupold GX but it runs around $300 and I dont need to spend that much. Does anyone know of a good finder in this price range? Thanks.

I don't think you'll find a rangefinder worth buying for golf for less than about 250 or so.

For around $150, the Bushnell Yardage Pro Sport is OK At around $200, you can get a decent golf rangefinder: take a look at the Bushnell Medalist and the Nikon Prostaff 550

Put away a dollar a day for 299 days and get something decent that you will use. Seriously, spending that much for the Bushnell V2 was the best golf investment I have ever made, better than any other piece of equipment.

My wife got me a Bushnell Tour V2 and it is wonderful...I'm learning how far I actually hit each club. I think she got it from golfsmith with 20% off and free shipping... I would say its worth it to get a good one... and definitely seems to be helping me get pin high a lot more often.

Just got the V2 as well. $259 at Dicks. Worth spending the extra 100 clams. It's almost winter as for it for Xmas

Just purchased, online, a Nikon Prostaff3 for $150, plus tax, free delivery from BassPro shops.  Probably as good as any other.  Nikon a great name in optics.

aww, I got no towel with mine.  I got 10 zero friction tees with mine.  Not really too fond of them.

I purchased the Tour V2 with the Patriot Pack as well.....those tees are in my bag somewhere! Best $$ i've spent on equipment in quite a while - well worth every penny (minus the 10%+ sales tax in chicago - couldn't stand to wait for an online order!!).....

I purchased the Bushnell Medalist and am pretty pleased with it. What I've found is that it's not fool proof. You need to shoot the target a couple times to make sure you're getting the flagstick and not the surrounding terrain.

That being said, I can't imagine playing without it now. As long as I make good contact with the ball, I'm pin high on 90+% of my approach shots.

+1 on the benefits of a rangefinder(even over a GPS as far as I'm concerned)  Does the Medalist have pinseeker like the V2 and above does?

The Medalist does have pinseeker. The primary differences between the Medalist and V2: V2 has 5X magnification with an adjustable diopter and uses a special CR-2 camera battery. Medalist has 4X magnification, is bigger, and uses a regular 9V battery. The Medalist is about $60 cheaper.

I just got the new Callaway (Nikon) Razr rangefinder and it is great.  Outside your stated price range but I think it's worth it.  Super fast.  I've used GPS apps on my phone, and I like this better.  Faster, simple, no nonsense.  It has their own version of "pinseeker" that works well.
