This is our Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt review, updated in October of 2017. We updated this review because even though the Tour Z6 Jolt is a few years old, we believe it’s the best rangefinder currently available WITHOUT Slope. On top of that, for the features, the price is reasonable – at the time of this writing, it’s around $329. Bushnell is no longer making the Tour Z6 Jolt, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth considering. It just means the price will likely be going up soon.

Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt User Rating: 4.69 Stars 4.69 out of 5 (234 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

First, let’s take a quick look a the main features of the Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt

  • It has 6x magnification that makes acquiring distances easier and also gives you a little better look at the area around your target. The Bushnell Tour V4 only has 5x.
  • The red VDT display (Vivid Display Technology) makes it easy to read in all lighting conditions.
  • The Jolt technology causes the unit to vibrate when it’s locked onto the target, increasing user confidence.
  • The E.S.P. 2 (Extreme. Speed. Precision) technology acquires distance easily and quickly. Accurate to within 1/2 of a yard. Of course, that’s more information than any of us need!
  • Adjustable diopter.
  • Waterproof.
  • 2 Year Warranty

Below is a chart of the current competition. There is really only one model rangefinder without Slope that equals the Z6 Jolt in features and that is the Leupold GX-3i2. The other models do not have the red numbers on the display. Some are only 5x magnification and are not fully waterproof.

The second table below shows models that match the features of the Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt in the Slope category. Most of these models now can turn OFF the Slope feature making them legal under the USGA local rule permitting distance measuring devices.
