Bushnell Pro X7 Slope Golf Laser Rangefinder Review

    The Bushnell Pro X7 Slope laser rangefinder retails for the hefty price tag of $599, but what we’re dealing here with is a state of the art piece of gear, not your average gadget. This baby incorporates some of the best high-tech features in the world, like the award winning PinSeeker with JOLT Technology (a proprietary Bushnell patent), Vivid Display Technology and E.S.P.2 technology. Basically, this laser rangefinder sets the standard when it comes to professional golfing equipment. When it comes to locking onto the flag, the JOLT thingy will make all your worries disappear, because you’ll be warned by the Pro X 7 Slope’s vibrations that you’re locked on target and ready to go. With this baby, all doubt will be left behind, and you can take this to the bank folks, the Pro X7 is that good! The E.S.P.2 is the abbreviation for the second generation extreme/speed/precision, which means that you’ll benefit from even greater accuracy than before, i.e. ½ yard accuracy from 5 to 125 yards. If you play a lot in the sunshine, the Vivid Display technology will offer you superior brightness and contrast for your screen, dramatically improving its sunlight legibility in any conditions. Also, the resolution of the display was improved, now offering clearer/sharper viewing angles.

    The Slope Technology (another Bushnell patent) works by compensating the distance, reading the hole’s decline or incline, hence you’ll never fall short again. This feature helps you by measuring the slope angle and compensating the range based upon the type of golf club you’re using and also the ball trajectory, all the relevant data being fed directly onto your LCD screen. For example, a shot 150 yard uphill really plays at 166 yards if you shoot of 6 degrees. Without the slope compensation offered by the Pro X7, you’d miss the shot by at least 16 yards. This baby features HD optics with 7x magnification and it ranges 5 yards to one mile, 550+ to a flag and it’s accurate ½ yard regardless the distance. Another cool feature is its waterproofness and the Bushnell Pro X7 Jolt slope rangefinder comes with 2 years warranty. If you want the best for the best, this is it.
