  2. Bushnell Golf, makers of the #1 laser rangefinder, chosen by 97% of pros on the PGA Tour today, introduces the industry’s newest innovation – HYBRID. HYBRID combines the latest in Laser and GPS technologies to provide better data so golfers of all levels can make better decisions on the course. The new Bushnell HYBRID utilizes precise Laser and GPS yardages allowing the golfer to see distance like never before. “HYBRID provides golfers more information than ever before. The two technologies ‘talk’ so that the golfer sees the front and back distances of the green in relation to the pin that is targeted with unmatched accuracy by the laser,” said John DeCastro, Bushnell Golf Product Lane Director. “The introduction of the HYBRID demonstrates Bushnell Golf’s commitment to providing the best, most accurate information so those who golf with Bushnell can play their best golf.” The new Bushnell HYBRID takes the guesswork out of the game by displaying the lasered distances to the pin and GPS provided front and back yardage readings within the LCD. Additionally, Bushnell has incorporated exterior GPS front, center and back yardages to assist with correct club selections when golfers have cart path only or blind shots. To support the power required by the combination of GPS and laser technology in the Bushnell HYBRID, the brand introduced the use of Dual Power Technology. The CR2 battery will power the laser and the USB rechargeable lithium ion battery will power the GPS. Dual Power Technology allows you to be able to able to use your laser, even if the GPS is not charged. Additionally, Bushnell Golf includes PinSeeker with JOLT Technology amongst the host of features offered in the new HYBRID. When the golfer aims the HYBRID at the flag, JOLT provides short, vibrating bursts to reinforce that Bushnell’s advanced PinSeeker Technology has isolated the target and locked onto the flag. The vibrating bursts provided by JOLT Technology ensure golfers have the exact distance to the flag. Key Differentiators 1st ever integrated Laser/GPS display Dual Battery source (CR2 for Laser, USB for GPS) HYBRID Laser Features PinSeeker w/ JOLT Technology Accurate to 1 yard 5X Magnification Ranges 400 yards to a Flag Fast Focus System Stable-Grip Technology Tournament Legal GPS Features Exterior Front/Center/Back Readouts Up to 4 hazard distances per hole Bluetooth for auto course updates Auto course recognition Auto hole advance The HYBRID will be available at Bushnell Golf retailers nationwide beginning in April. Retail price for the HYBRID is $399.99.
  3. There's another thread here for the GX-5i3, but these came in a separate press release much later, and I don't want to bury it at the bottom of that topic… New Leupold® GX®-1i3 and GX®-2i3 Golf Rangefinders Feature New Ergonomic Design BEAVERTON, Ore. — New GX®-1i3 and GX®-2i3 golf rangefinders from Leupold® feature a sleek, new ergonomic design that makes them easy and comfortable to hold in the palm of a hand. Both models offer Leupold’s high-performance DNA® (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy) engine and an advanced infrared laser that deliver faster measurements with increased accuracy that is superior to GPS devices. New PinHunter™ 3 Laser Technology increases the pulse rate and as a result, the GX rangefinder ignores user movement to quickly identify and lock onto the flag or pin for extremely precise and fast target acquisition. “Golfers will appreciate the look, feel and handling of these new rangefinders,” said Rob Morrison, vice president, global marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “They have all the distance, speed and accuracy to help take any golfer’s game to the next level and with the GX-2i3, you have customization features that make it like a personal caddie who really knows your game and can take the measure of any course.” GX-1i3 provides line-of-sight distance measurement only and is tournament legal. Tournament use of GX-2i3 is permitted under the Rules of Golf when a Local Rule is in effect (see USGA Decision 14-3/0.5) and the True Golf Range™ (TGR®) and Club Selector™ features are disabled. Using a custom algorithm that no other rangefinder has, TGR allows golfers to compensate for uphill shots that play long and downhill shots that play short. With the TGR and Club Selector features, GX-2i3 takes customization to an elite level by providing ranging information and club recommendations matched to the slope of the shot, atmospheric conditions and a golfer’s personal hitting strength. TGR displays the adjusted “plays like” range, calculated from the laser-measured line-of-sight distance, incline or decline, trajectory of the ball, current temperature, and specific altitude. Club Selector factors in the golfer’s specific hitting strength and TGR to the target, automatically recommending the proper club for each shot. Users simply input their personal striking distance for three specific clubs and the GX-2i3 does the rest, even indicating when the distance falls between clubs. Other key features for both GX-1i3 and GX-2i3 include audible Prism Lock Technology™ that allows golfers, including those with unsteady hands, to get their distances easily, quickly and with extreme accuracy when a course is outfitted with reflective prisms. Maximum ranging distance on prisms is 700 yards. Both models also offer Fog Mode to cut through mist and provide fast, accurate distance measurements. Each has 6X magnification and a one-touch scan mode that allows users to sweep the landscape while continuously measuring distance. Golfers can select from seven aiming reticles for each model, choosing the one that works best for the intended target and usage. Multi-coated lenses deliver a crystal-clear image. GX-1i3 and GX-2i3 are compact, weighing just 6.8 ounces, and measuring only 4.0 inches long, 2.5 inches high and 1.5 inches wide. GX-2i3 has a black LCD display for high contrast and clarity. Distance can be displayed in yards or meters. Both models are built to Leupold’s exacting standards for ruggedness. They are waterproof and covered by the Leupold Limited 5-Year Electronics Warranty. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $374.99 for GX-1i3 and $414.99 for GX-2i3.

  6. BEAVERTON, Ore. — Far more accurate than GPS and more customizable than any other golf rangefinder, the new GX®-5i3 offers all of Leupold’s latest technology that enables golfers to sharpen their game and improve scores. A recent update to Leupold’s high-performance DNA® (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy) engine and an advanced infrared laser empower the GX-5i3 to deliver faster measurements with accuracy displayed to the nearest 1/10th of a yard.

Other key features include audible Prism Lock Technology™ that allows golfers, including those with unsteady hands, to get their distances easily, quickly and with extreme accuracy when a course is outfitted with reflective prisms. Maximum ranging distance on prisms is 800 yards. GX-5i3 also offers Fog Mode to cut through mist and provide fast, accurate distance measurements. The rangefinder has 6X magnification and a one-touch scan mode that allows users to sweep the landscape while continuously measuring distance. Golfers can select from three aiming reticles, choosing the one that works best for the intended target and usage. Distance can be displayed in yards or meters. GX-5i3 is compact, weighing just 7.3 ounces, and measuring only 3.8 inches long, 3.0 inches high and 1.4 inches wide. Built to Leupold’s exacting standards for ruggedness and to withstand the typical rigors of golf, the rangefinder has a lightweight yet durable aluminum housing with rubber armor coating.

  7. My laser rangefinder , pin caddie 2 , has been my best golf purchase yet. I'm not a good golfer 96 is about avg. So I debated to get one . wondering if I could benefit from it. The answer is a definite yes. First I learned my yardages for 6-pw and am very confident in them. Second it magnifies the green so you can see if the pins front , rear etc. Third I use it to check hazard carry distances. I usually change clubs about 6-7 times due to the info it gives per outing. Ive kept my stats for the year . and after getting it my gir on par three went from 30 % to finish the year at 50%. I posted this because if your not a very good player and thinking about getting one . I say go for it , its expensive but I can't imagine playing without it now.
