Bushnell Tour V4 ShiftRead 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 ProRead 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.


TecTecTec VPRO500Read 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


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.
