With the governing bodies proposing the rules around the use of measuring devices be relaxed, allowing their use except when prohibited by local rules, it seems an appropriate time for Bushnell to release what it claims is its most advanced laser rangefinder to date, the Pro X2.
Engineered with a host of premium features including innovative Slope-Switch Technology the Pro X2 is positioned as the ultimate laser rangefinder for both amateur and professionals.
At the forefront of this claim is the simplicity of how Bushnell's trusted Slope Technology has been integrated into the device. Golfers can toggle between normal distances and slope measurements simply by moving the logo on the side of the device up and down.
Slope-Switch technology makes the Pro X2 the ultimate laser rangefinder whether practicing or competing, as it ensures the device conforms to local rule 14-3/0.5 when slope mode is switched off. In turn, this provides complete peace of mind for users, allowing them to have the same device for both practice and competitions.
Derek Schuman, Bushnell Golf Marketing Manager explains:
The Pro X2 provides golfers with the best of both worlds with a 2-in-1 Laser Rangefinder. Slope-Switch Technology makes it extremely easy to get compensated distances with a flick of a switch. The introduction of the Pro X2 demonstrates our passion to provide Tour players and elite amateur players with the most precise distance measuring devices on the market.
In addition to Slope-Switch technology the Pro X2 has rubber armoured metal housing that makes the device fully IPX7 waterproof, whilst it also boasts incredible range capabilities of up to 1,300 yards (450+ yards to a flag).
The Pro X2 also includes the 2nd generation of its E.S.P (Extreme. Speed. Precision) and PinSeeker technology as well as the familiar Jolt system that vibrates when the device locks onto the target to reassure golfers they have the exact distance to the flag.
E.S.P. provides yardage five times faster and more accurately than ever before. Not only has the acquisition speed been increased to a lightning fast level, E.S.P. provides ½ yard accuracy from five to 125 yards, and the distance is displayed to 1/10th of a yard. Having more accurate distances helps create extra confidence for the golfer with every shot.
Golfers can also easily toggle between a bright red display or a crisp black display depending on their preference to ensure that all the information can be easily read regardless of the light conditions.
