You most definitely won't be dissapointed with the V2.  I used mine this past season as it was a Christmas gift and it was just brilliant.  Easy to shoot targets, slope works great.  All around a great item and invaluable to golfers like myself.

i would just get a bushnell if i were you, all the courses are pre-loaded!  GPS's can get 3-5 yards off, where as a range finder is 100% accurate.  I got one last year for my birthday and it is awesome.  And, for some reason if you get the orange one it is $100 cheaper, exact same range finder, just orange.

They're as accurate as the person aiming the device. Miss the mound behind the green and catch a tree in the background and you could be 40 yards off. You still have to use your brain, "hmm . . . that seems off, better take another shot" will be a common phrase at first.

One thing I like to take a shot of is the group ahead in the fairway. I know exactly how far out they are. Not sure why so many people just guess.

I would think that *3-5 yards off* is close enough for most of us. Well, for all except that 30 HC I used to play with that swore he could differentiate his shot from 176 - 178 yards.

The magnification you get with rangefinders (usually around 7x, I believe) tends to negate any visibility issues (other than line of sight, of course.)

    • Meh, the book was better. Seriously, hope no longer term problems for the guy in the video.
    • Yeah, I slowed it down. You could pad it. Maybe cut a pool noodle in half or something. Most of my posts have the video. I'm all about the video. 😀
    • Legitimately, I think 30 minutes a month at the range would be enough for this stuff. You go and you just focus on hitting shots where you're aligned to the target and the ball is curving the right way. It seems like you do enough practice and other work where this probably doesn't need much time.
    • I agree, the swing looked good at SV. I agree with the losing focus on some minor details we take for granted sometimes. There are times I will find a line, start thinking about something and forget were I wanted to aim. The number of times I find people aiming way left or right because the tee box points them there is mind boggling. Play a few rounds were you have a mental checklist, or try to commit to a pre-shot routine with focusing on alignment.  If you are just hitting shots at the range to hit good shots, I doubt there is a difference. If you are focusing on making swing changes (exaggeration), then there will be a difference. Still, there is no difference unless you have video evidence. Schrodinger's Golf Swing 😛 
    • Almost never. I don’t go to the driving range. I could say that I’ll change that, but I’d be lying. I wasn’t debating over the shot shape, I didn’t know which direction the ball was going to turn. There’s a difference 😃 I’ve pretty much committed to hitting a fade. Slight push is fine which tends to be my miss more often than a pull. I’ve never taken a swing video on the course that looks anywhere near what I’m doing at home. There’s definitely a difference.
