I have no idea what is the most popular, but I really like my Callaway Razr.

I have a Leupold GX-I as well. Good buy for me.

I bought the Leupold GX4i and I don't believe the benefit is worth the cost. The slope feature is OK, but not usable in competitive rounds. The club selection that takes into account slope, altitude, temperature is pretty lame since it only recommends clubs from P-wedge to 2 iron. On top of that, it doesn't sense barometric pressure (altitude) or temperature, you have to input those figures into the unit for the day and the location at which you are playing.

Accuracy is very good, and it is a big help at the driving range, I think I'd have been just as happy with one of the units that sells for around $300 bucks and saved the $200 spent on useless bells and whistles for something else.

Quite a few of my friends have the Bushnell V2....Great product...may have to get one myself ! Maybe as a gift to myself once I reach a single digit handicap.

I have a Bushnell V2 (non-slope).  I love it.  I got it as a gift when I first started playing.  At first it was like a fun novelty - neat but not really usefull.  The better I get, the more valuable I find it.  I reach for it now on almost every shot.

I would go with bushnell. I have one for shooting. I should get one specialized for for golf as well, because mine is a bit bulky to carry in a golf bag. Waiting for a good sale on one. For now, I borrow it from a friend.

    • No offense, but in my opinion this makes you unprepared to discuss it.
    • Every year, something is changed in a club design.  The real differences are minimal, assuming your current clubs are from within the last 10 or so years (just throwing out a random number).

      However, I just got upgraded to the Ping G driver from the Ping G30, and the big change I noticed is the face of the driver has a bit more friction on the G (at least as I understand it).  What it seems to do is reduce side spin, while retaining normal-ish back spin (I use the low-spin tec version).  When I miss-hit a drive with my old driver vs the newer one, I see noticeably less slice or hook with the newer version.
        When I go through those articles, I mostly read through the reviews of them.  It gives a better idea of what might be better.
    • Right, but then you're just getting into however different people value different things (including money, the performance of their golf clubs, the looks of the golf clubs, the value of a name brand, etc.). People have different values. For something like this, there's rarely any agreement on those, nor is there any "right" or "wrong" answers. I use a set of muscle backs that could just as easily be from the 1950s as now. The tech on those isn't really improving much (though the shafts are undoubtedly much better).
    • We went round and round a bit on this last year, but I don't remember seeing decision 15-3b/1 mentioned.  The difference between this decision and 27/6 seems to be that B's ball is found in a timely manner.  The finding of the "other" ball makes it virtually certain that A's ball was moved by an outside agency (Player B).  In the other thread, B's ball is never found.  27/6 allows the same kind of relief as long as the "other" ball is found within the 5-minute search limit.  As I read the rules and decisions, this is a timing issue,  the rules require a decision to be made within 5 minutes of beginning the search for A's ball.  If the "other ball" isn't found, its presumed lost.   In a way this is somewhat similar to another discussion we had, where a player's ball apparently hit a cart path and went much further than anticipated.  He searched and didn't find it at the expected distance, went back and played another tee shot for the lost ball, and eventually found the original much closer to the green.  He couldn't then put the original into play and "negate" the second tee ball, as he'd already searched for 5 minutes. I don't know if the difference in the timing of the discovery is adequate justification for the different outcomes, but that seems to me to be the defining factor.  It would be interesting to get the take of some of the USGA rules experts on this, not on what the rules say, but on why they draw the distinction.
    • I'd have thought there would be a sliding scale, akin to a volume discount. Not just $x/18 = per-hole cost. Or if there are obvious points where it's not terrible to get back to the clubhouse, make 3-hole, 7-hole, 11-hole, 15-hole, and 18-hole rates. Then you could even consider the par of the holes. Heck, if the course started par 5, 4, 5 I'd be tempted to just play the first three holes three times.  I'd get more for my money than playing holes 4, 5, and 6 which are pars 3, 4, 3.
