Bushnell Laser Rangefinder Review Roundup

Character look through golf rangefinder.In our Bushnell Laser Rangefinder Review Roundup you will find all of the currently available models from the top manufacturer of golf rangefinders.

Bushnell has a wide variety of laser and GPS rangefinder, and they are almost always the highest rated when compared with similar models from other brands. We believe this is most often because users find it easy to lock onto the target, even at long distances.

We approach every review that we do with an open mind, but if we had to pick a favorite brand for a laser golf rangefinder, Bushnell would be our pick, hands down! Find a model that fits your needs and you’ll likely be happy with your choice.

Current Bushnell Laser Rangefinders
Bushnell Pro X2Read Full Review

The new Bushnell Pro X2 looks like it will become Bushnell’s flagship laser rangefinder for golf. It replaces the highly rated Tour X with some very nice improvements. Like the Tour X, the Pro X2 has a Slope mode that can be turned to make it legal for competition. The improvement, allowed by the 2016 rules modification, puts a simple switch on the side of the rangefinder that toggles the Slope mode on or off. The Tour X required a less convenient faceplate change.

The Bushnell Pro X2 also moves the display toggle switch to the side of the unit for easier access. This allows you to switch from the standard black display to the red VDT display depending on conditions. It has 6x magnification, is fully waterproof, has Jolt technology that vibrates when it locks the pin, and ranges to within a half yard.

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.

Bushnell Tour Z6 JoltRead Full Review

Jolt technology causes a vibration when you’ve locked onto the target. E.S.P. technology provides yardage faster and more accurately than ever before. The Vivid Display Indicators™ makes it one of the easiest to read golf rangefinders on the market. Bushnell Z6 has 6x magnification and a long battery life.

Review Score: 4.69        Slope: No

Bushnell Pro X7 JoltRead Full Review

The Bushnell Pro X7 with Jolt brings has the highest magnification level that can be found in a golf rangefinder. The 7x magnification brings the target closer and when combined with the wide body that makes two-handed operation easy, could make this the easiest to use laser rangefinder in golf. It also has jolt technology and easy to read red numbers. It’s larger and heavier than most other rangefinders, but if you usually ride in a golf cart, this model is definitely worth some consideration.

Review Score: 4.69        Slope: No

Bushnell Tour V4 ShiftRead Full Review

The Bushnell Tour V4 Shift is Bushnell’s response to the 2016 USGA and R&A local rule change that allows rangefinders with Slope to be used as long as Slope mode is disabled. We think this will likely become the best-selling slope ranegfinder on the market. Like it’s highly successful predecessors, it has Pinseeker for easily acquiring the flag over other objects; Jolt technology, so it vibrates when you have locked the target; and 5x magnification. Bushnell’s long history of producing the highest-rated laser golf rangefinders should also give you confidence in making this choice.

Bushnell Tour V4 JoltRead Full Review

The Bushnell Tour V4 standard edition has two changes from it’s predecessor, the highly rated Bushnell Tour V3. The V4 is slightly smaller and has an easy-to-use focus ring. In previous years, we would expect this to become Bushnell’s top-seller, but this year we think the Slope version of this model will give it a run for its money. The reason is that the Bushnell Tour V4 with Slope has a switch that turns off the Slope mode, making it legal for most competitions as of 2016. If the price difference isn’t too much for your budget, we suggest taking a look at the Bushnell Tour V4 with Slope.

Review Score: 4.64        Slope: No

Bushnell MedalistRead Full Review

This is Bushnell’s most basic golf rangefinder, but we have seen it outperform rangefinders with more features and bigger price tags. For some players, the horizontal two-handed model makes it much easier to hold. We also think it’s one of the easiest and most accurate for getting distances to an area on the ground for layups. Although it’s a little larger and heavier than some of the newer models, we still LOVE this rangefinder!

Review Score: 4.52        Slope: No

Bushnell HybridRead Full Review

The Bushnell Hybrid has been around for a long time. Until recently, there wasn’t any competition in golf rangefinders that combine laser and GPS. We still like this model, but the Callaway Hybrid has a few upgrades and one feature that really stands out over the Bushnell. The Bushnell only has one battery for GPS and laser, which means you have to remember to charge it after every 2-3 rounds. The Callaway Hybrid has two separate batteries which means you should never be caught without a working rangefinder. If that’s not an issue for you, price should be your guide, but otherwise check out the Callaway Hybrid.

Review Score: 4.50        Slope: No

Bushnell Tour V4 SlopeRead Full Review

The Bushnell Tour V4 Slope model probably won’t be available for much longer, so you may want to get it while you can. Its replacement is a nearly identical model, the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift. The difference between the two is the control on the side of the unit that switches it in and out of Slope mode. If you are looking for a model with Slope that can also be made legal for tournament play with the slide of a switch or a button press, these two models should be on your short list. Our first choice would be the more expensive Bushnell Pro X2. However, if that’s not in your budget, we like the Bushnell V4 Slope and Shift models very much and would choose whichever is the least expensive. If your budget is even tighter, check out the Leupold GX-2i.
