Our Review Summary of the Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 Laser Rangefinder is based on our research of user reviews across multiple websites. We look for commonly mentioned pros and cons so that we can provide an accurate representation of the device. We also calculate a GRS Score based based on user ratings to help when making comparisons between golf rangefinders.
Keep in mind that there are two versions of the Bushnell Pinseeker 1500: the Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 Tournament Edition and the Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 Slope. The only difference between the two is that the Tournament Edition does not include the slope measurement and is legal for use in competitions that have established a local rule allowing distance measuring devices. The slope model measures +/- one degree of angle, and compensated range, based upon ball trajectory and type of club used, but is not legal for use in competition.
