It's a great product for a great price. I feel like I lucked out finding i
8 February 2013
Summary: I spent a fair amount of time searching for a range finder that would be good and not cost a lot of money. If you look around out there, there's not a lot of range finders that meet both criteria. This is the exception. It's simple to use, lightweight and easy to hold steady. As I shopped, I noticed a lot of people had a problem with the battery compartment cover and the cheap case. I have no problem with either.
Summary: I upgraded to the Medalist from the ProSport 450 (don't buy for golf) and am completely satisfied with this product. It's quick and accurate and easy to use. Yes, I would recommend to any serious golfer.
Summary: This rangefinder was better than I thought it would be for the price. Picks up the flag really easily from 250 and in. Only question left about it is battery life. I bought it used so don't know how much battery was left. But after only owning it for two weeks the battery says low. Replacements are inexpensive but I just hope it doesn't run through them too quickly. I bought this for 170 and couldn't be happier.
Summary: Pros - super easy to use, accurate, excellent price Cons - none to date You can spend another $100 to $200 for all of the bell and whistles, but on the golf course, you just need the distance to the pin and other areas such as the lip of the bunker or how far to the dogleg or hazard. The medalist gives that to you that for the lowest price.
Summary: I actually researched this before buying it and this is an excellent buy. This one doesn't have the slope feature, but I didn't want that feature. If you want a rangefinder that is very easy to use and accurate, this is the one. I highly recommend it.
