It looks very similar to the Bushnell NEO Ghost, but we think the Phantom will be much more popular. The price is fantastic and this compact handheld golf GPS gives you all the basics in an easy to use package. It also throws in some nice high-end features. For starters, [Read more…]

Here’s a quick summary of our Bushnell Neo Ion 2 review.

We love it!

The reason… This watch is almost identical to its predecessor, the Bushnell Neo Ion and we loved it. There is one big improvement to the Ion 2 and that’s the Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone for automatic course updates. Simply put, Bushnell took a good product and made it much easier to use and that’s what we’re looking for in a golf GPS watch.

Our full Garmin Approach S10 Review will be available soon, but for now, check it out!

We are thrilled that Garmin finally has a new basic golf watch. We think this will be the best-selling golf watch on the market for awhile to come.

Garmin Approach S10 User Rating: 4.56 Stars 4.56 out of 5 (965 reviews)

Why? Because it does everything most golfers want in a golf watch and it’s lightweight and compact. On the main screen, you will see distances to the front, middle, and back of the green, plus the hole number and par. The shape of the green is also right there on the same screen. If you need hazard information, it’s one screen away. Many golfers won’t ever touch the watch after starting a round. A simple glance will tell them what they need to know. [Read more…]

After looking at user ratings, we had initially decided not to do a Bushnell NEO Ghost review, but with its current price point and Bushnell’s excellent record in golf GPS watches, we decided to take a second look.

Bushnell Neo Ghost User Rating: 4.00 Stars 4.00 out of 5 (426 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

We started looking at the feedback from the most recent reviews as sometimes companies work out issues of which the first wave of buyers was critical. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case with the Neo Ghost. Although 75% of users are fairly happy with their purchase, about one in five was totally dissatisfied. Usually, the criticism was because the unit either failed to perform at all – in some cases permanently and in others just shutting down during a round.

So to get to the bottom line on this quickly, here’s our takeaway…. [Read more…]

Budget-Friendly Laser Golf Rangefinders

Budget-Friendly Golf Laser Rangefinder piggy bankBelow we’ve listed our top picks for the best budget-friendly golf rangefinders. In this category, we’re looking for models under $250 that perform at a high level. Most of these models won’t have many bells & whistles, but we think they all do a very good job of getting the distance to the flag.

Precision Pro NX7 Pro - Read Full Review

Our initial hands-on experience with the Precision Pro Golf NX7 Pro has been excellent. It locks onto the flag very quickly and the unit vibrates immediately when it locks. It offers two modes, one with Slope and one without Slope. When in non-Slope mode, the unit is legal in events where rangefinders are permitted. It's simple to switch between the two modes, but not so simple that you're likely to do so accidentally. The price on this is much less than the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift, but the features and performance are very similar. The only thing missing on the NX7 Pro is the ability to check which mode you are in by looking at the side of the rangefinder. The NX7 Pro may also be slightly more difficult to use on hitting targets on the ground for layups, but the difference in price may make this easy to overlook.

Gogogo Sport Vpro GS03 - Read Full Review

The Gogogo Sport VPro GS03 offers several extremely affordable options and the reviews are excellent. Of course, the price is even better! If you're a hunter and a golfer, this model should work just fine for both sports. Make sure to put it into Golf mode when hit the links. If you tend to be rough on your equipment or you play in the rain, you may want to check out Bushnell. The Gogogo VPro GS03 isn't water-resistant and the hardware doesn't seem quite as durable. Still, at this price point and a 30-day return policy, we're giving the Gogogo GS03 a thumbs up!

TecTecTec VPRO500 - Read Full Review

It's the combination of price and performance that puts the TecTecTec VPRO500 in our list of top rangefinders. It used to be that it felt safer to go with a well-known brand when you bought a golf rangefinder. However, when there are over 800 hundred reviews for a product and over 75% of them are 5 Stars, those concerns can be easily dismissed. Well, actually we had to see it to believe it. We purchased it from Amazon and put it to the test. We were not disappointed. It was super easy to lock on the flag, even from long distances. The unit was compact, but the numbers were large and easy to read. It was also easy to range other targets, including bunkers and the ground. The only performance issue we noticed is that it sometimes varies 3-4 yards when ranging the same target multiple times. For most golfers, that's not really a big issue, but other rangefinders in our top picks are typically more consistent. However, they are also more expensive. If that issue is a concern for you, check out our Best Laser Golf Rangefinders.
