Conclusion: Seems very accurate, but it can be difficult hitting the flag from over 230 yards. Battery last a long time (over 15-20 rounds) and I take multiple measurements per hole for me and my playing partners. Wish it used a different crosshair as opposed to a circle...makes it a little harder to be precise. Also, Pinseeker mode works well. Overall, a must have if you want accurate yardage and don't want to have to replace batteries often like GPS units require.
Conclusion: I had a chance to use my friend's Bushnell V2 laser range finder along with his Sky Caddie SG5 at the same time. I must say, the there is a definitely difference in accuracy between the two. Although it may be a small difference in yardage, some may find it trivial while others find it a deal breaker. I personally thought the range finder is really easy to use - if you have a steady hand.
Conclusion: I picked this unit for its size and seemed to have a good viewfinder. I was really expecting to have a little difficulty keeping a steady hand, but I have no problem getting readings relatively quick. I like that you can hold down the top button, get a reading and then move the scope left or right, the reading will change. I say that because I had another rangefinder in the past, It was hard to tell if I got the pin or the bush behind the green.
Summary: It gives the exact distance to the opin, or whatever else I am focusing on. All I need to select the right club. It does not make me a better golfer, but it is helping me to get closer to the pin.
