Bushnell Pro X2 Notable Features
  • Slope-Switch Technology – easily turn slope on or off.
  • Fully Waterproof (IPX7) – Most rangefinders are only water resistant, so we are happy to see this improvement..
  • PinSeeker with JOLT Technology – vibrates when you lock onto the pin.
  • Accurate to a 1/2 yard – may be overkill!
  • Range: 5-1,300 Yds; 450+ Yds to a Flag.
  • Dual Display Technology – handy button on the side to toggle the red VDT with black depending on conditions.
  • Magnification: 6x.
  • 2nd Generation E.S.P. – acquires the target quickly.
  • Fast Focus System – a focus ring on the eyepiece makes it easy and fast to adjust the focus.
  • Stable-Grip Technology – the rubber grip over the metal hosuing gives you a solid grip.
  • Rubber Armored Metal Housing – very durable.

Bushnell is calling the Bushnell Pro X2, the “World’s Ultimate Golf Laser Rangefinder For The Avid Golfer”. It appears they are replacing the highly rated Tour X, which actually makes a lot of sense. The Tour X was an outstanding performer, but because it was designed prior to the 2016 USGA rule modification, in order to make it legal for tournament play, you had to switch faceplate which was a bit inconvenient.

The new Pro X2 has a simple switch on the side of the rangefinder that allows you to toggle the Slope mode on or off. If you’re wondering why you would want a rangefinder with Slope when it can’t be used in competition (or technically in rounds where the score is posted for handicap purposes), here are a few reasons:

    Bushnell Pro X7 Review

  • Practicing with Slope mode turned on will help you get a better feel, so you can improve your visual estimates when you don’t have Slope turned on.
  • During practice, you can try different clubs to see how much an uphill or downhill shot is affected.
  • If you play a practice round before a tournament round, you can make notes about the elevation and the notes can be used during the tournament!

In all honesty, we think most golfers can benefit from practicing with a Slope rangefinder and we’re thrilled that new models are available with simple-to-use Slope switches.

Another improvement on the Bushnell Pro X2 is the location of the display toggle switch. It is now on the side of the unit for much easier access. You can simply press the Bushnell logo while you are ranging to switch from the standard black display to the red VDT display depending on conditions.

Given Bushnell’s track record, the Pro X2 is pretty safe bet. However, if you’re not ready to buy yet, check back soon for our complete Bushnell Pro X2 Review!

Replacement battery for Bushnell Pro X2


  1. Can I get distance aiming to the ground?

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says:

      Usually, you can get a distance to a spot on the ground with a laser. I often will aim it at a spot on the ground short of a hazard for a layup shot.

  2. Jim Carboy says:

    I’m interested in the Pro X2 as a more accurate alternative to my current gps. I do wear prescription eyeglasses and if I needed to remove my glasses in order to use the device I would probably keep my gps. Any advice? Thanks, Jim

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says:

      Hi Jim,

      I haven’t personally used the Bushnell Pro X2 just yet, but I wear glasses and haven’t had any problems using previous Bushnell models or even less expensive brands. It’s hard to imagine that the new top of the model would not be able to be used by those of us who wear glasses. It has 16mm eye relief, but I think that it’s not as important for rangefinders as it is regular binoculars, as the main goal is to get the distance to the target and that is displayed in the middle of the display. If you do buy it, please come back and let us know what you think.

  3. Keith says:
    If I’m not using my rangefinder. If I take out the battery will the battery have longer life?
