Shout out to Bushnell

Recommended Posts

The other day one of my bosses, yes i have a few… came to me with a package he got in the mail. A brand new Bushnell  range finder. One day he decided to contact Bushnell about a range finder that he regularly used and may have been out of warranty. The lens became cloudy and he was having a hard time seeing though it. So he contacted Bushnell about the issue and they told him to send it in and they would see what they could do. He mentioned if there was a charge he would pay it if the warranty didn't cover it. Assuming there still was a warranty.

A few weeks later he gets the package in the mail with a brand new range finder. He tried looking it up on the internet and it's not even listed yet. This is that new.

So shout out to Bushnell for a deed well done.

PS. I don't work for or have any affiliation with Bushnell. Just noting that they did a good thing.

Regards.

I had a great experience with Bushnell customer service as well.  Had a Pro 1M Slope edition.  An error code came up rendering it useless.  I called the company and sent it in.  They sent a brand new Z6 model to me along with $100 gift card.  very impressed.

Thanks for posting.  I had the same experience with Leupold.  Both fine companies with good customer service.

    • I voted "no". Reason being there is/are sanctioned events and tours (e.g. Michigan Hickory Tour) and some are even shown on Sky Sports. They even have the Trilby Tour. This is a real amateur tour where the main stipulation is that you have to wear a trilby hat (i kid you not). Like many have said, the tech is soooooo different that it is more likely to be detrimental to their regular game that anything other than 9 holes or so for charity or exhibition wouldnt be worth it for them. That being said, some older pro's have switched largely to hickory golf with a lot of success. Sandy Lyle for instance won the hickory World Golf Open in 2014 and 2016. Still plays modern gear but in interviews says he enjoys the old stuff more. Difference is that Sandy isn't competing at the very top of the sport these days.
    • @Jack Watson, I think you know as well as I that the USA Today article is garbage in terms of saying pros want to play full tournaments with hickory. In fact, one of the first quotes in the video was, "Wouldn't want to play them from the tees we play nowadays". The the most praise they got was that the person "enjoyed the hit" or that it felt soft, but the soft wasn't necessarily good considering one of the pros likened it to "a bar of soap". In other words, the old equipment is garbage (crap) by comparison. It's the same as if you compared a Ford Pinto to a modern Ford Focus: the Pinto is crap by comparison (though there are a few who have a nostalgic infatuation with the older one).   My point is that what you think, "They should have enough pride to actually want to do this," has absolutely no bearing on reality. The pros have nothing to gain from playing this event, besides maybe to blow off some steam as a joke. It certainly wouldn't count towards the FedEx cup and they'd have to devote extra time to practice with equipment that, quite frankly, no longer is relevant or matters anywhere outside of a history museum.  I'd be willing to bet $100 that a survey of all pros on tour would show more against such an event than in favor of it. I understand that you very much want to see the event happen, but you should also be able to understand the reasons why such an event would never happen and why a majority of the golfers would be against it.  
    • I posted this for people who are intered in testing their core and balance, with these three progressive moves.  then leaving a comment on how they did.  If you are not interested in doing that please go somewhere else
    • @Vinsk  You have not shown a shred of evidence to support your view as I did.  Snedeker agrees with me and he shot 80 with vintage gear.  Where is your evidence?  I offered mine. Platitudes do not qualify as arguments.
    • It’s just more of the, “I just won’t admit this game is incredibly hard” nonsense to me. “Oh yeah? Well let’s see these pros who think they’re so good hit ‘real gear’.” It’s all nonsense. They’re that good. Period. @Jack Watson, you’re not. Whether it be hickory or space age titanium. Let it go. You’ll never ‘figure golf out.” Ok sorry. I’m done.
