We’re excited about our upcoming Bushnell Pro X2 Review! Why?
Bushnell Pro X2 User Rating:
5.00 out of 5 (6 reviews)
Score compiled from multiple sources.
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:
- 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!

The new Bushnell Pro X2 looks like it will become Bushnell’s flagship laser rangefinder for golf. It replaces the highly rated Tour X with some very nice improvements. Like the Tour X, the Pro X2 has a Slope mode that can be turned to make it legal for competition. The improvement, allowed by the 2016 rules modification, puts a simple switch on the side of the rangefinder that toggles the Slope mode on or off. The Tour X required a less convenient faceplate change.
The Bushnell Pro X2 also moves the display toggle switch to the side of the unit for easier access. This allows you to switch from the standard black display to the red VDT display depending on conditions. It has 6x magnification, is fully waterproof, has Jolt technology that vibrates when it locks the pin, and ranges to within a half yard.
