The Bushnell Pro X2 Laser Rangefinder is by far one of the most sophisticated gadgets any golfer can own. Despite its size, it manages to accommodate lots of features that are hardly found on other rangefinders.

That been said- if you’re looking for a portable, durable, easy to use, and accurate golf rangefinder, look no further than the Bushnell pro x2 laser rangefinder.

This device is targeted at golfers who are happy to fork over a small fortune to get fast and precise distances.

Bushnell Pro X2: Technology-related terms

Rangefinder review

One of the most notable features of the Pro X2 is the Slope-Switch Technology, which allows the user to easily switch between normal and sloped distances by simply moving the Pro X2 logo up or down.

In addition to being deemed waterproof, the device also boasts a 1,300-yard range and a rubber-armored metal housing. The PinSeeker with JOLT Technology uses a vibrating burst to isolate the flag target and pinpoint its location up to 450 yards away.

Users can easily switch between a bright red display when it is dim and a crisp black display in bright conditions with dual display technology.

Observations: Recent changes in golf rules now permit the use of slope-capable laser rangefinding devices in competition, as long as the function is disabled.

Bushnell Pro X2: Usability

Despite the extra weight, the device appears to be more stable in the wind, and distance is displayed almost instantly. It is easy to keep a steady and firm grip using the laser while using the textured surface area and the display provides a clear indication of the flag’s location.

Having a Vivid Red display on an overcast day and a vibrating Jolt is a big plus, providing you with peace of mind that you are seeing the distance you want to see.

If you already use a laser rangefinder or are thinking of switching from a GPS device, the Pro X2 won’t disappoint. The flags can be spotted without a lot of fuss, but this tool is also an invaluable companion off the tee when you have to measure bunkers or trees on the other side of the fairway.

The option of switching from slope distances to a slope angle with a single click is a useful feature, though it was sometimes a bit too easy to move the button.

Other features are;

  • Yard Range: 5-1300/5-450 to flag
  • Magnification: 6X21 mm objective diameter
  • Display Type: LED/Red, LCD/Black
  • Dimensions: 1.5 x 4 x 3 inches, 8 oz
  • Tournament Legal: Yes
  • Waterproof: Yes
  • Measuring System: Yards/Meters
  • Measuring Distance: Line of sight/Slope
Pros Cons
Completely waterproof There are no mounting options
Easy to read display Expensive
Jolt vibrations

Summary

The Pro X2 comes with a premium price tag because it offers extra distances that admittedly not every golfer will need, but if you’re serious about your game, you need an affordable, accurate device that is fast and intuitive, which makes it the perfect choice.
