Bushnell Tour X Review

Bushnell has been in the sports optics sector for over 65 years, and they bring all their considerable skill and vision to this the Bushnell Tour X Golf Rangefinder. This is a little unit packed full of technology and innovation. It’s one of those models that exceeds expectation and truly does revolutionize the way you play the game. With 97% of the PGA Tour using it, it can’t be bad.

Game changing technology

It all starts with the brilliant dual Exchange Technology which allows you to swap a non-legal Slope faceplate for a tournament legal one when you need to, so you no longer need two rangefinders for your game. Bushnell’s Thomas Disch elaborates “With Exchange Technology, golfers can use the same device in practice, gaining exact yardages plus slope compensation distances, while also being able to use the same device legally in comps…”

The fantastic and award-winning Pinseeker with JOLT technology vibrates to confirm you’ve locked onto the flag, this carries on from the Tour V3 model and continues to be a handy tool.

You can toggle effortlessly between either a black or red display using Bushnell’s Dual Display Technology (DDT), allowing you to see the screen no matter the lighting or weather conditions on the course. Which means finally, users get to opt for the color they prefer and what works best for them.

With its modern white and black ergonomic design featuring buttons which are simple to operate even with your gloves on. And a well-proportioned size and weight, it’s easy to see why it’s been proving so very popular with golfers everywhere. At just 8 ounces it’s lightweight and portable. The premium hard case means you can safely transport it wherever your game takes you. Plus you’re covered by Bushnell’s two-year warranty should there be any problem with your unit.
