We’ll get our Laser Link Switch Review summary posted as soon users start giving some feedback. At first glance, we like the looks of the newest member of the Laser Link family. It merges the features of the QuickShot and the RedHot, giving the best of both worlds.

The beauty of the original Laser Link QuickShot is that it can quickly and easily pick up distance to any flagstick with a prism on it. The handle on all Laser Link models make them a little easier for some users to handle. The problem was that the QuickShot was worthless on any golf course without prisms.

The Laser Link Red Hot added the ability to hit any visible target including flagsticks without prisms. It could still hit the prisms, but by being able to pick up trees and other targets, it lost some of its ease of use.

Enter the 2012 Laser Link Switch. Now when you’re playing a golf course with prisms, you’ll use QS mode most of the time, unless you need to quickly “Switch” over to RH mode to get the distance to a different target. QS mode should make it extremely easy to pick up the prism on the flags, but it sure is nice to have the option to get the distance to other target. If you visit a course with no prism, just stay in RH mode all day to get traditional laser measurements.

We wouldn’t recommend this to anyone whose home course does not have reflectors on the flagsticks. It is our opinion that other less expensive laser rangefinders that have magnification built-in would serve those players better. Check out our picks for best laser rangefinders.
