We’ve included seven different models in our Bushnell Laser Rangefinder Review Roundup and four of those also have versions that measure slope/elevation.
Bushnell has been on top of the golf rangefinder market for years now because their products consistently perform well and get excellent user ratings. The various models meet the diverse needs and budgets of most golfers.
Released early in 2011 as the first rangefinder on the market to combine laser and GPS technology in the same unit. It’s like having a Bushnell Tour V2 Tournament Edition with a Bushnell neo+ GPS all in one device. If you have the budget for it, there probably isn’t a better all-around golf rangefinder on the market right now. One thing to keep in mind though is that the laser and GPS share the same battery, so it requires charging every few rounds unlike other laser rangefinders. Read Full Review
Released in early 2013, the Bushnell Tour V3 introduces Jolt technology, which produces a vibration in the unit when it locks onto the flag. Reviews indicate the V3 may be the easiest golf laser rangefinder to use. It’s small with a 5x zoom and it’s available with or without slope. Read Full Review
Released in the Spring of 2012, this is the new top of the line laser from Bushnell. It boasts a 7x magnification, an adjustable diopter setting, Pinseeker technology and PowerBoostTM which promises 35% more target acquisitions. It’s built to be used horizontally, so it can be steadied easily with two hands. If steadiness is a concern, we’re betting this laser rangefinder will be at the head of the class when it comes to ease of use. Read Full Review
Released in the Spring of 2012, this model offers 6x magnification, easy to read red numbers in the display and distancing information in 1/2 yard increments. The Z6 has Pinseeker technology and E.S.P. technology (Extreme. Speed. Precision). This vertical model can be used with one hand and also has an adjustable diopter setting. Read Full Review
The V2 is a vertical model that can be used with one hand. It has Pinseeker technology and 5x magnifcation. It’s a solid performer that competes at the mid-range price point. The ratings are excellent and it’s available with or without slope. Read Full Review
The Medalist is ideal for the golfer on a budget, but make no mistake, it does a great job. The magnification is 4x, but with the horizontal two-hand design, most golfers find it easy to use and thus it gets excellent ratings. Read Full Review
The highly successful 1600 has been at the top of our ratings chart for awhile. The 7x magnification with Pinseeker technology and the horizontal design have drawn rave reviews from users, but it won’t be available for much longer. Watch for discounts as this model is being replaced by the Pro 1M. Read Full Review
