Bushnell Pro X7 with JOLT -; Our Golf Rangefinder Buyer’s Guide attempts to address the actual factors you’ll want to think about when choosing a laser rangefinder.

golf range finder reviewsAccuracy

First thing you need to know is that ALL laser golf rangefinders are accurate to within a couple of yards. Should you get the one that is not really accurate, it’s defective and you ought to send it back!

Just what exactly should you really consider when purchasing a golf rangefinder?


The first thing to decide is whether or not you want a rangefinder with Slope. Slope measures difference in elevation between both you and your target and estimates the distance that the shot may play, in addition to the actual distance into the target. It may be a really useful feature however is not allowed underneath the Rules of Golf. If you don’t ever want to make use of it in competition, then it’s definitely worth considering.


If you’re a skilled golf rangefinder user, then you will probably have the ability to use almost any from the current models. However, when you have any trouble showing up in the right target along with your laser or maybe you’ve never used one, the most crucial factor is comfort of getting the distance to the right target. Your rangefinder won’t be any good to you when you can’t quickly get the right distance anytime you make use of it. The factors below often affect usability.

PinSeeker, PinHunter, First Target Priority

Most models today consist of the technology that allows this device to separate a foreground object from background objects. It means if you’re aiming at the flag with trees behind the green, your rangefinder will show you the closest object, which ought to be the flag. This feature is found on most current models. Bushnell calls it Pinseeker, Leupold calls it PinHunter and Callaway calls it First Target Priority Mode. Some models also give a sound, vibration or visual cue once the closest target is locked around the display.


Laser rangefinders change from no magnification to 7x magnification. We believe higher magnification can help you to hit the right target.


A rangefinder that’s too small can be a problem for people who want to use two hands to have it steady. Two hands definitely makes ranging easier. Several wider models fit two hands quite comfortably.

Scan Mode

Most designs have a Scan mode. Because of this either while you’re holding a control button down or for a variety of seconds as soon as you press some control, the rangefinder will scan the targets you’re ranging, attempting to find the correct one. In many instances, it’s easier to use a rangefinder with Scan mode turned on, so make sure you try it out.


There is a difference in readability. We’ve learned that units with Red numbers are much easier to see. Unfortunately, there is generally a price to be paid for that come with.

LESS Important Elements

More Features

Some models have more features, particularly slope models. These aren’t critical, but will be fun.

For most users, this is not an issue. Most of these lasers can measure distances well beyond a point where we must have information. If you’re within 15 yards of the flag, you could probably walk up and get your distance without the use of a rangefinder, so minimum distance is quite irrelevant.
