TecTecTec VPRO500Learn More

It’s the combination of price and performance that puts the TecTecTec VPRO500 at the top of our list. It used to be that it felt safer to go with a well-known brand when you bought a golf rangefinder. However when there are over 800 hundred reviews for a product and over 75% of them are 5 Stars, those concerns can be easily dismissed. Well, actually we had to see it to believe it. We purchased it from Amazon and put it to the test. We were not disappointed. It was super easy to lock on the flag, even from long distances. The unit was compact, but the numbers were large and easy to read. There are other rangefinders that have features we like, including Bushnell’s Jolt feature and several high-end models with red display numbers. However, for the money, the VPRO500 is tops!

Bushnell MedalistLearn More

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 holding the rangefinder steady, much easier. Because of the price and the ease of holding it steady, this is the #1 favorite rangefinder of one of our editors!

Nikon Coolshot 20Learn More

Nikon produces amazing optics for its solid line of rangefinders. Unless you need the red numbers, there really isn’t a better value in a laser rangefinder. It’s lightweight and small and of course, it’s extremely accurate!

GolfBuddy LR5Learn More

The GolfBuddy LR5 laser rangefinder has 6x magnification, scan mode, and pin mode which scans the landscape for the closest target, helping to isolate the pin from background objects. GolfBuddy is well established in the golf GPS world and will definitely make headway into the laser market with solid entries like the LR5 and the LR5S slope model. It’s the name brand and the low price point that make this model a real contender.

TecTecTec VPRODLXLearn More

You may never have heard of TecTecTec, but they have quietly been gaining serious momentum in the golf laser rangefinder market. The reason… their rangefinders are getting rave reviews and their prices are significantly lower than the bigger brands. At first glance, the difference between the TecTecTec VPRODLX and the VPRO500 doesn’t seem significant. The VPRODLX is waterproof and has a slightly longer range, but what makes it worth the money is the Distant Target Priority Mode that makes it easier to grab the pin. If you’re looking for a budget-friendly laser rangefinder, put this one on your short list!
