    Beginner's Rangefinder

    I was looking at getting a rangefinder for some time, but I didn't want to drop the money on some of the others out there. This is definitely a good entry level rangefinder. It does not have the slope function, but it isn't a big deal for my game. The compact size is also great. I have not had any accuracy issues once I'm locked on like others have mentioned in reviews. I tested next to a friend using a watch GPS, and we were consistently within +/- 3 yards of one another the entire round. The problem comes into play locking on to the target. Windy days make it tough. It will take me 2-3 attempts to truly get the correct reading, but again once I get locked, it's accurate. My saving grace is that I am pretty aware of my surroundings and knew a reading of 200 yards wasn't right with the 150 marker in front me. I was picking up a tree in the background (thanks wind). Although I am only giving it 3 stars, I would recommend this product to the casual golfer, and it's worth saving yourself some money.

    The newer Nikon rangefinder include vibration reduction and after using this device for 6 rounds I would recommend to most users. This rangefinder has difficulty locating the pin when more than 200 yards away. Mainly due to being able to remain still while using the laser. I found that on windy days it would be affected more than on a calm day. I am speaking about light vibrations, not being over caffeinated or twitchy. This said I find this device very useful for my scoring clubs. When I am 150 yards and in I really enjoy using this rangefinder to dial in the distance to the pin. This is the only time I use the device and have no issues with vibrations. If you are wanting to pin a flag from greater than 200 yards get the upgraded VR model, if only using for scoring clubs this one is a great value for the money.

    This is the first time buying a range finder for golfing. Now that I'm getting more serious about my game, this has helped me get real yardage not only on the course but on the driving range. Now I am able to be more realistic with my distances and club selection. This product is easy to use and hasnt failed me yet. It's hard to keep steady to get a pinpoint at first, but you get used to it real quick.

    This is the perfect beginner rangefinder for a great price! It is very accurate with the yardages and easy to find and lock onto the flags. The case it comes with is Velcro so it’s easy to strap it to the cart for easy access. The viewfinder is clear and looks hd, and I really enjoyed that this product came with its own batteries!

    First ranger finder purchased and it works great. Knowing the exact pin distance has helped improve my game. This item is quick to pinpoint the flag stick. After 8 rounds only had trouble twice getting a lock on the flag due to heavy vegetation in the background skewing the numbers and preventing a lock. Otherwise no complaints with the product

    Title says it all. In about 15-20 rounds, I've only missed 1 reading. Not sure if it was the lighting or what, but it just wouldn't pick up the pin. Other than that it has been flawless. This includes cloudy rounds, sunny rounds and in between. Solid product.

    I’ve been in the golf industry for years and got this in a pinch when I lost my Bushnell. It gives accurate numbers and is compact. I’d recommend, especially if you are looking for a good price point.

    I was surprised to see this item for sale. I read reviews and searched 3rd party sites to read up on this product. For the price, it does exactly what a 400 dollar scope does. I've had it two months and haven't had to change the battery yet either. Very happy with it!

    I wanted something a little more compact in my bag. This was the perfect rangefinder for that. On top of that it's easy to get started and works really well. No need to shoot the target over and over again like my previous bushnell. I highly recommend it.

    Accurate and easy to ping flag from 175 and in. Require a little more effort further out. Light weight and easy to operate with one hand. Does require steadying if windy. Great value for price.

    I use the Coolshot all the time while playing. Most courses in the area do not have very good markers so the range finder helps a lot. It fits very well in your hand ant the accuracy is spot on.

    It is accurate and works well. Does not have the slope feature, but that's not a big deal for the courses I play and my level of play. Read the instructions so you know how to use it properly.

    Very portable and locks onto target fairly quickly compared to my Bushnell. Field of view is also very clear. Definitely a good value for the money for this no frills rangefinder.

    This rangefinder was horribly inaccurate. Numerous times my reading was 30-50 yds off. Even when i was sure that the aiming reticle was pointed at the flag, it was still way off.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Product is worth I paid. Would recommend to other ( not so great golfers :+). No real problems. A little shaky when zeroing in, but gets the job done. Would buy again.

    Bought this for my dad who is an avid golfer. It was a decent price for a rangefinder. It is a little small in the hand, just depends if you view that as a pro or con.

    This is nice rangerfinder for the price. Crisp and clear view. Don't have all the bells and whistles that pricier rangefinder. But it does it's job well.
