TecTecTec VPRO500Read Full Review

We put the TecTecTec VPRO500 on the top of our list because performance this good at a price point this low is unmatched in our opinion. We saw the incredible ratings, but had to test it ourselves and it surpassed our expectations! TecTecTec may not be the best known brand in the golf rangefinder market, but I don’t know of any of the lesser known brands that have ratings this high. This unit has 6x magnification, Pinseeker Mode, and a Scan mode. We’ve never seen this unit on sale, but at this price, what are you waiting for?!

Rating: 4.50 (848 ratings)  Magnification: 6x
Weight: 6.6 oz.   Legal: Yes

Bushnell Tour XRead Full Review

Let’s face it, having Slope on your golf rangefinder is extremely helpful. The downside has always been that it wasn’t legal in competition. The Bushnell Tour X gives you the best of both! Ratings and reviewers indicate it may be the easiest to use golf rangefinder on the market. If you want a rangefinder with Slope, you won’t find one with higher ratings than the Tour X. However, there are two models that make it easier to turn off the Slope feature and still comply with the USGA local rule. The Tour X requires changing the faceplate, while the newer Bushnell Tour V4 and the Leupold GX-2i2 both utilize an easy On/Off switch.

Rating: 4.86 (179 ratings)  Magnification: 6x
Weight: 8 oz.   Legal: Yes, when the black faceplate is attached.

Bushnell Tour V3 StandardRead Full Review

The Bushnell Tour V3 with Jolt is one of the highest rated laser golf rangefinder that we’ve ever seen. It’s not the top of the line when it comes to features, but when it comes to performance, it’s hard to beat. It’s compact and lightweight and accurate to within a yard. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced rangefinder to do one job well, this may be the one you’re looking for!

Rating: 4.72 (895 ratings)  Magnification: 5x

Bushnell Pro X7 Jolt

Bushnell Pro X7 JoltRead Full Review

The Bushnell Pro X7 has 7x magnification, Pinseeker with Jolt (vibrating bursts), and its wide body makes for easy two-handed operation. Some users find it’s much easier to hold steady with this type of grip. Bushnell also uses VDT, which makes it easier to read the numbers on the display. For anyone who is concerned that using a laser rangefinder may be too difficult to hold steady or to see the numbers, this model could be the easiest to use ever.

Rating: 4.69 (66 ratings)  Magnification: 7x
Weight: 12 oz.   Legal: Yes

Leupold GX-2i2 (slope)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 Pro X7 Jolt (Slope)Read Full Review

This is Bushnell’s top of the line golf rangefinder. It’s the only current model with 7x magnification. The size and design make it easy for two-handed operation which can make holding it steady much easier. It is super fast in acquiring the target and has easy to read red numbers in the display. Once the target is acquired, holding the button for two additional seconds will give you the degree of elevation and estimated “plays like” distance.

Rating: 4.70 (70 ratings)  Magnification: 7x

Bushnell Tour V4 Slope

Bushnell Tour V4 SlopeRead Full Review

We love the idea of this newest release from Bushnell that allows the Tour V4 to conform to the USGA updated local rule when Slope is turned off. Now you get the best of both worlds with and easy on/off switch, rather than a faceplate change. We are not sure this model is quite as easy to use as the Bushnell Tour X, but for the price, it’s definitely worth considering. The only other model with a similar on/off switch for Slope is the new Leupold GX-2i2.

Rating: 4.13 (60 ratings)  Magnification: 5x
Weight: 5.6 oz.   Legal: Yes, with Slope mode turned off
