Bushnell Pro X2Read Full Review

We’re very excited about the new Bushnell Pro X2! Bushnell was quick to adapt to the 2016 rule modification that made rangefinders with Slope legal as long as the slope mode could be turned off for competitive rounds. The sophisticated faceplate hardware change is not longer required, so Bushnell put a simple toggle switch on the side of the unit. The Pro X2 utilizes Dual Display technology that allows the user to choose standard black or red VDT for displaying distance information. Just press the logo on the side of the rangefinder while ranging to switch modes. This unit also features 6x magnification, is fully waterproof, has Jolt technology that vibrates when it locks the pin, and it ranges accurately to within a half yard.

Weight: 8 oz.   Legal: Yes* When Slope Switch is turned off.

Bushnell Tour V4 SlopeRead Full Review

There has been a great deal of shake-up in the golf laser rangefinder with Slope category in recent months. The Bushnell Tour V4 Slope was one of the first units out to comply with the updated USGA rule allowing rangefinders in competition. Oddly, shortly after releasing this model, Bushnell made a slight modification to it and released a nearly identical model, the Tour V4 Shift and stopped manufacturing the V4 Slope. For that reason, you won’t see this model around for much longer, but as of this writing, it’s significantly less expensive than it’s replacement. Although our top pick in this category is the brand new Bushnell Pro X2, the price of the Bushnell Tour V4 Slope, makes it a very compelling choice. The ratings are excellent and there may be a very short window for buying the Tour V4 Slope at this price.

Rating: 4.37 (93 ratings)  Magnification: 5x
Weight: 5.6 oz.   Legal: Yes, with Slope mode turned off

Precision Pro NX7 ProRead Full Review

We like the looks, features, and the price of this newcomer to the golf rangefinder market. This is a Slope rangefinder that meets the new USGA requirements with a switch to turn off the Slope mode, thus making it legal for competition. It looks to have all the same features as the much more expensive Bushnell Tour V4 Shift at a significantly lower price. Plus it offers free lifetime battery replacement. The NX7 Pro will also be in direct competition with the Leupold GX-2i2, which sells for a similar price. We will be doing a hands-on test very soon and hope that it will meet our expectations.

Rating: 4.79 (91 ratings)  Magnification: 6x
Weight: 5.45 oz.   Legal: Yes, with Adaptive Slope Mode turned OFF.

Leupold GX-2i2 Read Full Review

For the price, the Leupold GX-2i2 offers a lot of bang for your buck. It has Slope, an easy on/off switch to make it legal, and also can recommend a club based on your hitting strength, slope, and environmental factors. It takes a little work to set it up, but if you are a bit of a golf geek, you’ll love it. Even if you only use the Slope, the price of this model makes it a contender in our book!

Rating: 4.22 (13 ratings)  Magnification: 6x
Weight: 6.8 oz.   Legal: Yes, when the slope feature is turned off.

Bushnell Tour XRead Full Review

The Bushnell Tour X topped the ratings in its short run. Although Bushnell has discontinued this model in favor of newer models that don’t require a faceplate change to switch off Slope mode, however, there are still some of these units available and if you like the idea of making it completely transparent to your fellow competitors when Slope is turned off, this is your best bet because they can see the color of the faceplate from a distance. However, if you want Slope as an option, but don’t want to have to carry the extra faceplate, you may want to take a look at the brand new top of the line Bushnell Pro X2, the Bushnell Tour V4 Slope, and the Leupold GX-2i2.

Rating: 4.66 (222 ratings)  Magnification: 6x
Weight: 8 oz.   Legal: Yes, when the black faceplate is attached.

GolfBuddy LR5SRead Full Review

The early reviews on the GolfBuddy LR5 are really solid for a golf rangefinder with Slope in this price range. If you don’t need your rangefinder to be USGA local rule compliant, we highly recommend you consider. You would have to pay significantly more at this point to get a Slope rangefinder that has the required On/Off switch. We’re really excited to see GolfBuddy making inroads into the laser rangefinder market with some inexpensive, quality products. The GolfBuddy LR5 is the non-Slope version of this model. Note: This model is not legal under the USGA local rule. If you are looking to have both Slope and USGA compliance on a reasonable budget, check out the Leupold GX-2i2.

Rating: 4.55 (11 ratings)  Magnification: 6x
Weight: 7.69 oz.   Legal: No
