Summary: I bought this product in hopes of having 2 ways to measure the distance to the pin. It took me a while to get used to its operation with the range finder - but I am now more proficient at gather the data faster. Like a good golf shot if you trust it this product will work well for you. I played today and it was very foggy out - you would lose the ball after 130 yard shot.
Summary: Thanks to the seller. This product was factory refurbished and to date I have not had any problems with the unit. Battery life is great and functions operate as required. Definitely helps not having to guess in the yardage markers are correct or having to pace it out!!
Summary: I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD EVER BUY A RANGEFINDER THINKING THAT IT WAS A WASTE OF MONEY.IF I COULD MATCH MY SWING TO THE VERY ACCURATE READINGS I GET, BOY , WOULDN'T THAT BE SOMETHING!I'M STILL A LITTLE GREEN WITH THE USAGE BUT IT HELPS TO KNOW THE YARDAGE EVEN WHEN THE SWING IS A LITTLE BIT OFF.I'M HOPING THAT THE SWING AND READINGS GET TOGETHER SOON.
Summary: This a THE THANG! The seller even had a remarkable deal on a refurbished one. This thing works easily. Been to courses I've never been before and even though experience would have been better this was def the next best thing. I had it sitting beside me going thru the tunnel to another section of our course. As I went down the hill the laser fell out and was bouncing down the hill beside my cart.
Excerpt: The Hybrid is the best I have ever used. I rarely use the GPS since I can see all the greens. Yes, GPS may be off a bit. Either the course was not mapped correctly or toaday's flag, although marked in the center, is not actually in the center of the green where it was mapped. So what? I don't know why anyone would use the GPS feature if they could see the flag anyway. The power of the GPS is when you can't see the green or flag.
Summary: I have used several different Rangefinders and this Bushnell Hybrid is by far the best. It supplies a simple Front, Back and Middle distance at a glance or use the Laser feature and get the distance exactly to any point on the course. It measures to bunkers, ponds, lay-up distances and of course the pin! The price is higher than most, but well worth it.
Excerpt: Why did no one think of this before..the GPS feature is simple but more than adequate and the pin seeker range finder is one of the easiest to use I have ever tried. Since this was just a recent purchase, we have not tried out all the available features yet and have only had the opportunity to use at a couple other courses in our area other than our home course, but it works wonderfully. The battery lasts and lasts.
