The new look is sporty and professional with an undertone of obsessiveness for accuracy. But, not only does it look good, it’s also lightweight and compact.

Light-weight, compact and ergonomically designed. Tournament legal. Fast 5x magnification. User-friendly design
- Ranging With Style
With JOLT mode, the rangefinder vibrates in your hand to let you know that it’s locked onto a target.
- Hunting Optics
But its claim to fame stems from the proprietary JOLT pin-seeking technology with short vibration bursts to ascertain the laser has latched onto the flag.
- Rangefinder Lab
Range: It can measure distances that are anything between 5 and 1000 yards and more than 400 yards to the flag while maintaining and accuracy of +/- 1 yard at all times.

It comes with a pin seeker technology that combines the JOLT function to help you target your goal and lock your shot with a high level of accuracy for up to 400+ yardswith an accuracy level up to +/- 1 yard.

Some people have said that the battery is a little difficult to insert
- Ranging With Style
The device is sometimes inconsistent in its range readings, requiring multiple tries to be sure of the distance to target. Magnification on this model is 5X, which is a bit below average.
- Hunting Optics
Tweaking between various modes or functions poses a myriad of challenges
- Rangefinder Lab
The 5X magnification is still not the best.
- Laser Golf Rangefinder
Inconsistency with pin lock mechanism
- Golf Laser Rangefinder HQ
