Golf is an entertaining sport, no doubt. But it can even be more interesting if things were in your favour many more times. If you were in you’re A-game most often than not and winning more games. Well, with the Bushnell Tour V2 Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder, your game can be just that. Using this new piece of technology, you will see your game improve a great deal. Doubt it, let’s have a look at the features that it comes with.

Key Features

Accuracy and magnification

The Bushnell Tour V2 Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinderhas the ability to bring your targets five times closer with its 5x magnification and an eyepiece that is adjustable with a ± 2 diopter adjustment for focusing the viewfinder. The magnification can give you readings from objects that are even over 200 yards away from you with great ease and efficiency.

Its manufacturing company states that the Tour V2 has the ability to provide accurate measurements of up to 300 for pin, 600 for trees and over 1000 yards for targets that have reflective prisms. Targeting the flagsticks in the course and other objects is easier with the aiming circle, especially given the fact that crosshairs emerge around the circle after the laser has been fired.

Auto scan mode and PinSeeker

With the Bushnell Tour V2 Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder, you get two different modes – PinSeeker mode and Auto Scan. You can easily switch between the two by the press of a button.

For panning, and getting the different distance of the different objects in the golf course, all you have to do is switch to the Auto Scan mode while you have the power button pressed down the whole time.

On the other hand, the PinSeeker mode is intended to make work easier for you during those times when the object that you are targeting as several other objects in the background. However, despite the name it has been given, the PinSeeker mode can be used to identify other targets aside from the flagsticks.

It is able to establish if there are other objects in the background and ignore them regardless of whether they are bigger in size than you intended target.

Ease of use

At a glance, the Bushnell Tour V2 Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder is pleasing to the eye as it has a very nice shape. But in addition to the lovely look, it is very comfy to feel and hold as well. And what’s more, it is waterproof meaning you can use it even when it is raining for the length of time that you want.

It can be held steady with both or even one hand – whichever you are comfortable with. It comes with a carrying pouch which proves to be very handy and secure for the device.

Battery time

The device runs on a 3 volt battery. When fully charged, it can serve you for over a 5000 distance reading. It does not feature a battery meter but it does come with a low battery indicator light that will appear in the view finder right when the battery needs to be replaced. This is approximately after every 12 months or 1 year.

The laser range finder can only be fired for a maximum of 10 seconds before it can be fired again. This is pretty handy as it prevents the battery from draining fat in the event you accidentally press down the power button for a long period. The 3V battery is safe behind the Posi-Thread battery door.

Extra information

The Bushnell Tour V2 Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder weighs 0.41 pound and measures 1.7 x 4.5x 3.8 inches. It comes complete with a two year warranty. As such, in the event the device gets a fault, you can always get a replacement or get it repaired.

Pros

Unlike many of the rangefinders that have the same specification as the Tour V2, the tour V2 is pretty cheap and affordable. It is perfect for even entry level golfers who are looking to up their game fast.

It comes in a compact size and its weight makes it comfortable to hold. You do not feel weighed down by it as you use it all through the course.

Cons

The battery life of this device is not the best. In fact, the manufacturers could have done it better. It dies too fast and the batteries drain pretty fast.

Even when you hold it up with two hands, the device still shakes. So much so that it gets distracting.

Conclusion

Accurate fast and reliable. These are the three words that can be used to describe the Bushnell Tour V2 Standard Edition Golf Laser Rangefinder. It is very easy to use, it also provides accurate results by just a click of a button.

To top it all off it is a device that is legal to be used in tournaments. It is of great quality and just the help you need in the golf course.
