Here’s a summary of our Gogogo Sport Vpro GS03 Review

Gogogo Sport Vpro GS03 User Rating: 4.55 Stars 4.55 out of 5 (3782 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The Gogogo GS03 is a budget-friendly laser rangefinder that works well for both golf and hunting. Although you can use any laser rangefinder for golf or hunting, it’s much easier if you are using one that is designed for the sport for which you are using it. Fortunately, the Gogogo Sport Vpro GS03 has a switch that makes it work well for either sport. That said, we think this is an excellent option for golfers, even if they don’t hunt. Just look at the price!

This unit has Slope mode that can be turned on and off to make it tournament legal. It has Jolt technology so you can feel it when you’ve locked onto your target and it has 6x magnification. To get those specs in Bushnell rangefinder, you would have to pay hundreds more. The build quality may make the Gogogo Sport a little less durable, but our bigger concern is for those who like to play in the rain. This model is not water-resistant.

There are several different versions of the Gogogo Sport Vpro. The most expensive version has a built in magnet that makes it easy to mount on your golf cart. Although we love this feature, at the time of this writing, the price difference well over the cost of a magnetic strap. For our money, the lowest price version of this model is an incredible value.

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.

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.

This is our review of the Precision Pro Golf NX7 Pro Review.

Although there is only a $50 difference in price over it’s counterpart the NX7, the Pro version adds significant advantages.

Precision Pro NX7 Pro User Rating: 4.54 Stars 4.54 out of 5 (3043 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

In our hands-on testing of the NX7 Pro, we were impressed by how quickly and easily it locked onto the flag and gave confirmation vibration. If you haven’t used a laser rangefinder with pulse vibration or Jolt technology, you might be surprised at how helpful it is. The accuracy of the NX7 Pro was good when compared with other rangefinders and consistent within a yard when rechecking the same target multiple times.

We love that it has the Slope feature that can be turned off making it legal in tournaments that allow distance measuring devices. It’s a simple button press to switch modes. The actual distance appears below the crosshairs and the adjusted distance appears above the crosshairs. Although Slope can’t be used in tournaments, we think it’s a very helpful feature in practice rounds on new courses and also for helping you train your brain to make better estimates.

Our Precision Pro Golf NX7 Pro review wouldn’t be complete without discussing how it compares to similar rangefinders from Bushnell. Our comparison is to the Bushnell Tour V4 Slope and the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift, which only differ from each other in the way you turn the Slope feature on and off.

  • The NX7 Pro has 6x magnification and both Bushnells only have 5x.
  • All three models vibrate when they lock onto the target. We love this feature on all of them.
  • Distance readings on all three models are very similar.
  • On the NX7 Pro, switching to Slope mode requires a simple button press to a button on the top center of the rangefinder. The only other action this button is used for is switching from Yards to Meters, which requires a press and hold. Since you probably won’t be switching units of measure, it’s highly unlikely that you would accidentally turn Slope on during a tournament. The advantage that the Tour V4 Shift has is you must slide a switch on the side of the unit to turn Slope on or off. You can actually look at the switch to confirm that you are not in Slope mode. The Tour V4 Slope model has actually been retired by Bushnell presumably because the Slope Mode had to be turned on or off using the same button that you use for ranging the target, thus increasing your chances of making a mistake and turning it on during a competition.
  • The difference in acquisition speed of the target was not noticeable.
  • The ease of locking onto the target is good on all three units.
  • The NX7 Pro provides measurements to the 1/10 of a yard. Although it sounds good in theory, since most golfers don’t need that much information, it isn’t really useful. In fact, when in slope mode, both the actual and adjusted number have decimal points, which makes it more difficult to make the mental calculation of how many yards uphill or downhill the shot is playing. Although it’s not a huge problem, we really wish the NX7 Pro would just round both numbers to the nearest whole number. Both Bushnell V4s display only whole numbers.
  • The NX7 Pro only displays the adjusted distance to the target, while the Bushnell Tour V4s alternate between the adjusted distance and the degree of the elevation angle. Which you prefer is a personal preference, but having both might cause a slight delay if you have to wait for the display to alternate to your preference.
  • The numbers on the NX7 Pro seem a little larger than those on the Bushnell models.
  • In Slope mode, the NX7 Pro displays the adjusted distance above the crosshairs and the Bushnell models display it below the actual yardage and a little bit smaller. It’s a minor thing, but it takes a longer to make the eye adjustment to take in both numbers on the NX7 Pro.
  • The size of all three models is nearly identical.
  • All three units do a great job of targeting on the flag and on trees. However, the Bushnell V4s may do a slightly better job of hitting ground targets.
  • All three of these models use the same 3-Volt lithium battery and will last for about a very long time. Precision Pro Golf offers free battery replacement for the life of the unit.
  • All three models have a 2-year warranty.
  • The price of the Precision Pro NX7 Pro is significantly less than either Bushnell model.

Summary: The differences between the Precision Pro Golf NX7 Pro, the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift and the Tour V4 Slope are fairly minor, which makes the NX7 Pro an amazing value. Although we recommend the NX7 Pro without reservation, we think it’s worth considering your personal preferences as well as your budget when making your decision. As golf laser rangefinders typically last for many years, you may find it worthwhile to spend the extra money if you think the Bushnell is more suited to your preferences or if you prefer their long-standing track record for making quality golf rangefinders.

Our Bushnell Tour V4 Shift Review will be coming soon, but here are our initial thoughts…

Bushnell Tour V4 Shift User Rating: 4.48 Stars 4.48 out of 5 (90 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

Our first look at the specs had us wondering what the difference was between the Tour V4 Slope and the new Tour V4 Shift. Overall, these units are almost identical. The size, shape, and weight are the same. They both have Pinseeker, Jolt, 5x magnification, and the ability to easily switch out of Slope mode to become legal for tournament play.

The difference is simply a change to the Slope switch. It’s small, but quite significant. On the V4 Slope, you simply pushed the Bushnell logo on the side of the unit to switch Slope mode on or off. The new V4 Shift changes the switch to a slider that covers up the word “SLOPE” when Slope mode is disabled. That does two things:

  1. allows your fellow competitors, opponents, and rules officials to see that you’re using a legal rangefinder
  2. keeps you from any uncertainty once you’ve teed off in competition. You don’t want to have to look into the viewer and shoot a target only to find out you had left the Slope mode turned on.

For that reason, if you ever compete in events where rangefinders are allowed, we definitely would pick the V4 Shift over the V4 Slope.

Bushnell has a long tradition of producing the highest-rated golf rangefinders on the market. We expect the Tour V4 Shift will be no different. In fact, we expect this model to become the best-selling golf laser rangefinder with Slope within a few months.

Bushnell Tour V4 Shift Features
  • Slope Switch – Allows you to use the Slope feature when you’re playing for fun and legally turn it off when you’re in competition. With Slope turned on, you can see the degree of elevation and an estimate of how much shorter or longer a shot will play.
  • Pinseeker Jolt Technology – This gives a visual indication on the screen, plus a vibration when it is locked onto it’s target.
  • Magnification: 5x
  • Accuracy: measures to within 1 yard.
  • Fast Focus
  • Stable-Grip
