Bushnell Tour V4 Slope User Rating:
4.13 out of 5 (60 reviews)
Score compiled from multiple sources.
The Bushnell Tour V4 with Slope ushers in a new era in laser golf rangefinders. This is wholly the result of the USGA changing the rule about devices that measure conditions that are not allowed under the rules.
So back to our Bushnell Tour V4 Slope Review…
Although there isn’t really enough user feedback for us to do a full review, we LOVE the concept of a rangefinder with Slope that can be easily made legal. There are only two models that offer this option and it would be a toss-up between the two if not for the price difference. The Leupold GX-2i2 also has the simple method for turning the slope on or off and tends to be much less expensive. Both units have similar ratings, so at this point in time, we have to go with the lower priced model.
HOWEVER, if budget is not a big issue for you and you don’t mind changing a faceplate to get legal, we really recommend the Bushnell Tour X. It has some of the best reviews we’ve ever seen in a golf rangefinder which we believe is the result of the optional red numbers in the display and the ease of acquiring the target.
- Slope AND USGA Legal – The best of both worlds… Slope when you need it or turn it off when it’s not allowed.
- PinSeeker with JOLT – provides short vibrating pulses to give a tactile confirmation that the laser has locked onto the flag.
- 5x Magnification – brings the target in closer.
- Fast focus system – allows you to change the focus easily with your index finger.
- Ergonomic design with Stabi-Grip technology – more comfortable and secure grip.
- Water resistant – no worries if you play in the rain.
- 2 Year warranty
- 3-Volt CR2 battery and premium carry case included
|Model||Bushnell Tour V4 Slope|
|Battery||3 Volt CR2 Lithium|
|Battery Life||est. 1 Year|
|Notes||*This unit can be easily switched out of Slope mode to comply with the USGA local rule that allows distance measuring devices.|

The Bushnell Tour V4 differs from the extremely successful Tour V3 by adding a fast focus system and Stabi-Grip technology for a better grip. However, what we love the most is that the V4 Slope model offers and easy on/off switch for Slope, which makes it legal in events where the USGA local rule is in effect. Other models required you to change the faceplate to make it legal, but the V4 and the new Leupold GX-2i2 are the only two models that make this really easy.
