New laser rangefinder from Bushnell features both slope and non-slope adjusted distances through cutting-edge Exchange technology
Bushnell has revealed its new Tour X laser rangefinder, which eliminates the need to choose between a device that offers standard distances (legal for competition use), or slope-adjusted distances.
Replacing the Tour V3 model, the Bushnell Tour X features revolutionary Exchange Technology, which uses two interchangeable faceplates slotted on the end of the device. One of these faceplates is black, which is the non-slope version permitted for use in competitions. The other faceplate is red and features a plug-in that activates the technology inside the device to offer slope-adjusted distances based on elevation changes.
“We are proud to unveil our most feature-packed laser rangefinder to date, which continues our legacy of dominance in professional golf,” said Scott Peterson, Bushnell Senior Product Manager. “The introduction of the TOUR X once again proves we are not only committed to the Tour player, but also the elite amateur player who requires precise yardage readings during practice and tournament rounds.”
The new Bushnell Tour X also features a Dual Display that allows users to easily switch between the bright red Vivid Display for dim conditions or the crisp black display. It has a range of up to 1,300 yards and also boasts PinSeeker with the vibrating Jolt function up to 450 yards when it locks onto the flag.
The TOUR X is also equipped with second-generation E.S.P. (Extreme Speed Precision) technology, which provides yardages five times faster and more accurately than ever before. Distances from under 125 yards and in are displayed to the nearest tenth of a yard.
The Tour X RRP is £419 and its available in April from all good golf stockists.
