Best Golf Laser Rangefinder with Slope
Bushnell Pro X2 - Read Full Review

We're very excited about the 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 no 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.

Rating: 4.77 (112 ratings)  Magnification: 6x  Slope: both
Weight: 8 oz.   Legal: Yes* When Slope Switch is turned off.
Bushnell Tour V4 Shift - Read Full Review

The Bushnell Tour V4 Shift replaces the Tour V4 Slope model. Both are legal in USGA competitions that allow rangefinder as long as the Slope feature is disabled. The difference is that the V4 Shift has a slider switch on the side that is simple to use and displays on the outside of the unit when it is in Slope mode. We like this improvement from the Bushnell V4 Slope that gave no indication of the mode until you looked into it. This model will likely become the best-selling laser golf rangefinder with Slope on the market. It has Pinseeker, Jolt, and 5x magnification.

Rating: 4.48 (90 ratings)  Magnification: 5x  Slope: both
Weight: 5.6 oz.   Legal: Yes, if Slope Switch is Down (Off).
Precision Pro NX7 Pro - Read 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. In our hands-on testing, we have been very pleased with the performance of the NX7 Pro.

Rating: 4.79 (91 ratings)  Magnification: 6x  Slope: both
Weight: 5.45 oz.   Legal: Yes, with 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: 4.12 (40 ratings)  Magnification: 6x  Slope: Yes
Weight: 6.8 oz.   Legal: Yes, when the slope feature is turned off.

Bushnell Hybrid - Read Full Review

We are so excited to see Bushnell bring back a Laser/GPS Hybrid Rangefinder to its lineup. They've added all the features we could have hoped for on this 2018 hybrid rangefinder. This time you have Pinseeker with Jolt, making it fast and easy to know when you're locked on to the flag, but better than that, you'll also see the GPS distance to the front and the back of the green right in the laser display! Besides that, the GPS displays on the side of the unit and has distances to hazards available there. We love that there is one battery for GPS and one battery for laser and we love that you can update the courses wirelessly via Bluetooth and an app. The app also has full holeview and distances, as well as flyover views. We think Bushnell has knocked this one out of the park!

Rating: 99.00 (N/A ratings)  Magnification: 5x  Slope: No
Weight: 6.1 oz.   Legal: Yes
Bushnell Tour V4 Jolt - Read Full Review

The Bushnell Tour V4 replaced the extremely popular Bushnell Tour V3. This model is a little bit smaller and had an easy to use focus ring. Although we think the Tour V4 is a terrific rangefinder with Jolt and Pinseeker, we think its popularity will be shared with the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift. The Shift version has Slope, but also allows you to turn it off to make it legal for most competitive events as of the 2016 rule change. If you have not interested in Slope, the Bushnell Tour V4 is an excellent choice.

Rating: 4.64 (176 ratings)  Magnification: 5x  Slope: No
Weight: 6.6 oz.   Legal: Yes

Nikon Coolshot 20 - Read Full Review

The Nikon Coolshot 20 is a highly rated golf rangefinder. It is Nikon's smallest laser rangefinder for golf and it gets outstanding reviews. For performance and price, this unit is hard to beat! It doesn't have any bonus features like pulse vibration when you lock the target, but if you are looking for a budget laser rangefinder, this is a good pick!

Rating: 4.42 (219 ratings)  Magnification: 6x  Slope: No

TecTecTec VPRO500 - Read Full Review

We put the TecTecTec VPRO500 in our top picks 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. In our hands-on testing, the only issue we noticed is that it may display up to 4 yards difference when ranging the same target repeatedly. Other models in our lineup tend to be within a yard or two. If that is a concern for you, check out our Best Golf Laser Rangefinders.

Rating: 4.50 (848 ratings)  Magnification: 6x  Slope: No
Weight: 6.6 oz.   Legal: Yes
