The Leupold GX-4i2 brings something completely new to the table in the world of laser golf rangefinders. It’s the first one to have Slope that can be legally (in the USGA sense) “turned off” with the included chrome Smartkey faceplate.

Leupold GX-4i2 (Slope) User Rating: 4.32 Stars 4.32 out of 5 (53 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The truth is that most golfers who are likely to use a laser rangefinder, are also likely to play in events that would deem a rangefinder with Slope illegal for competition. That keeps many of us from buying a rangefinder with Slope and causes some of us to have one of each. The Leupold GX-4i2 solves the problem and throws in some extra bells and whistle that will thrill the truest of golf geeks among us.

Leupold GX-4i2Notable Features
  • True Golf Range (TGR) – Uses elevation, altitude, temperature, and other atmospheric conditions to estimate a “plays like” distance.
  • Club Selector – makes club recommendations based on the True Golf Range (TGR) of your shot and the distances you have previously entered for your 8, 6 and 4 irons.
  • Weatherproof – Not only is it durable and waterproof, it has Fog Mode that will improve accuracy when you play in foggy conditions.
  • PinHunter 2™ – filters out background images and makes zeroing-in on the target faster and easier.
  • Prism Lock – combined with PinHunter 2 makes “locking on” faster than ever before. You get an audible tone when the rangefinder finds the prism, and the distance is immediately displayed.
  • Scan Mode – provides multiple readings in one quick sweep, just hold down the Power button and the display will continuously update with accurate line-of-site measurments.
  • Chrome faceplate – disables True Golf Range and Club Selector features making the GX-4i² “legal” under the rules of golf (per USGA Rule 14-3/0.5).

There are not a huge number of reviews yet, but most users love this rangefinder. The few who did not seemed to struggle with locking onto the correct target. That is the age-old problem with laser rangefinders, while they work well for most golfers, a few will have a hard time holding it steady enough to do a good job.
