It had some good reviews, but I spent a little more for the Nikkon unit.

I used it for the first time yesterday BTW and liked it. It took some getting used to, especially where I had a blind shot. I kept my GPS app running for those situations.

I use golflogix on my iPhone for free. It's pretty close with yardage but just to center then estimate from there. Also no distances to hazards without paying a yearly fee. From What I have seen a laser obviously looks more accurate. And will help with blind approaches which would've been really helpful Sunday.

That said I have never used one so what do you guys think about this one.

Seems like that technology that gives the reading to closest object would make things easy. Plus it comes with. 4 batteries apparently. Again I have never used one and sure I could go for another $100 or $200 if I had to but I already spend so much actually golfing I would like to buy a cheaper one without the bells and whistles that aren't necessary but still won't give me a bunch of trouble hitting the pine which is what I was to do do obviously.

At the minimum, I want to see front, back and middle so I have a range. I actually get all the advanced features of the golf GPS app with iGolf. It's going to take a while to get used to shooting everything with a laser.

Just bought a Bushnell Tour V3. Probably could have got it a little cheaper but I have been going back and forth on it and figured if I didn't walk into a store and buy it I wasn't going to. And eventual I would and I was just wasting time not having it. I hope this is all it is cracked up to be for $300.

Lovin my laser. It's really helping me on par 3s and approach shots. Most misses are left or right. =]

So this is my first year with the bushnell tour v3 and holy crap if you don't have some sort of laser rangefinder then you are truly missing out. I'm hitting almost 70% of greens compared to 30% last year. Of course my iron play has been ALOT better but man am I ever more confident with my irons

I have the Nikon and i love it. Picked it up at Dicks grand opening door special. Great device. It shoots for 8 seconds. I measure the pin, front rear, hazards. I was surprised how far off course markers are. Lower scores, fewer lost balls, pin high when i do my part.

nikon coolshot vs bushnell comparable model?

 

nikon should be rainproof? Does the laser work well in the rain btw? Maybe not torrent downpour but light rain?

I haven't tried it in rain yet, but definitely like the Coolshot. I'm getting better at marking targets.

Bushnell Tour V2 here and love it!!!!   It's one of the best things you can add to your bag... Think about it, you will use it every shot and hone in your yardages...  It's well worth every penny.  As a couple other people have mentioned, if you play any tournaments then don't get the one that does slope.  You only need yardages...

Ok first time using mine today and I like it a lot. Probably saved 2 shots with it. Easy to hit the pin or whatever I wanted to with no problem with the V3.

I have not played around enough with the Bushy to tell.  I have not used in a full on downpour but it worked well today in light rain, low clouds and little fog.
