Caddytek Caddyview V2 Rangefinder Review

The Caddyview V2 was the biggest surprise of our rangefinder test. Our expectations were low with a price point of under $150, but this unit held its own among all of the higher priced golf specific rangefinders. Of the 30 readings we took, there was never a miss of more than 1 yard. The average time to pick up the rangefinder, lock into the flag, and set the device back down was under 5 seconds. Optics and feel of the device are in line with…

Should I get a golf rangefinder with slope?

(Updated 4/23/19) Rangefinder with slope is a common term you will see when checking out the rangefinder market. The majority of units out there are non-slope versions, but all of the big brands have plenty of options available for rangefinders with slope. The big question is, do you need (or want) slope on your next rangefinder? There are a couple of different things that need to be thought about before we can help you answer this question. Do you play in golf tournaments? Do you…

Our first side-by-side rangefinder test of three mid-cost golf rangefinders. The Bushnell Hybrid Golf Rangefinder & GPS, Bushnell Tour V3 with Jolt, and Nikon Coolshot 40i w/slope.

Nikon Coolshot 40i Golf Rangefinder with Slope Review

The Nikon Coolshot 40i Golf Rangefinder w/Slope was not a rangefinder on my rangefinder test list. The local course manager borrowed it from a friend so I could do an on-course test. I had absolutely no knowledge about this unit when I took it to the first tee. I spent the first 5 holes trying to figure out why the readings were slightly off of the Bushnell Hybrid & Bushnell Tour V3 I was using for the side-by-side test. Finally I realized when I arrived…

Bushnell Tour V3 Golf Rangefinder Review

The Bushnell Tour V3 Golf Range Finder is a fantastic option for a low cost range finder. First released in 2013 to replace the Bushnell V2, the first in the Bushnell line with Jolt technology was their big push. The V2 at the time was the go-to Bushnell rangefinder, and many people felt the V3 was just a play by Bushnell to repackage the V2 rangefinder with a fancy new shell and sell it as new technology. These people were proven wrong when they tried…

Bushnell Hybrid Laser-Gps Rangefinder Review

Rangefinder Review: The Bushnell Hybrid Golf Rangefinder & GPS is the second rangefinder I have owned. After my Bushnell Jolt Z6 Tour Rangefinder was lost to never be found I went to work trying to decide on my next purchase. This rangefinder combines the best of both worlds, the precise accuracy to the pin when a clear shot is available, and the front-center-back readings for blind shots into the green. You also get a bit of added accuracy on distance-to-clear hazards through the GPS system.…
