Summary: I used this rangefinder for three years and it worked fantastic. I sold this rangefinder to get a bushnell with slope, HUGE mistake. I regret selling this rangefinder everytime i step up to hit my next shot. This rangefinder locks on to targets extremely fast and is very lightweight in your hand. It is nice having such a small unit that can do so much. The bushnell takes two hands to use and an entire pocket of the golf bag.
Seems like the best all around range finder on the market

Conclusion: This laser range finder is by far the most accurate and easy to use of any of the range finders out there. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 on accuracy is that it does not work well in heavy fog (and neither do any of the other models currently on the market, including the sky caddy). Otherwise, this is now the most important item in my bag (other than my clubs, balls, and glove). It is especially useful during practice to tune in your distances exactly.
Summary: The Nikon 500G is quick and accurate. It easily picks the flag from the surrounding clutter. It is much handier than the hand held GPS units (which only work on some courses). If you love to golf - get one.
Pros: Accurate, Comfortable Eyepiece, Compact, Quality Lenses, Simple to use, Strong Construction
Summary: I find the laser caddy basically easy to use; but it requires a steady hand. If you have a serious hangover you're going to have some problems getting a good reading. I would look for a good bracing device or a bit more of the hair of the dog that bit ya to steady up those shakes.
Pros: Accurate, Fast Performance, Strong Construction
Summary: My brother purchased a Bushnell pinseeker for $500.00 and flashed it around as "sate-of-the-art". I paid $[...] for my Nikon and it works just as well for half the price. It's small, lightweight and easy to use.
