To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I needed to replace an older rangefinder, so I purchased one of the cheapo ~$100 versions available on Amazon. It looked nice, but it simply didn't work reliably, and frequently couldn't locate a pin. I returned it, and got this Callaway unit. It's great. Compact, bright viewfinder, picks up pins reliably. And I like the little birdie chirp it gives when it spots the pin. It does occasionally miss a pin and give the distance to a tree that was in the frame, so you always have to be prepared to do a reality-check on a surprisingly long distance. Step off to the side a couple of yards, and repeat the reading.
This is a comfortable little gadget! I compared the distances against those my friend had on his Garmin watch and they were within 1 yard. The only issue was sometimes the numbers were off the charts wrong, so it wasn't spotting the pin correctly: picked up something way off in the background or something up close. So have a rough idea of your distance. Over all I'm quite pleased. Slope distance is nice since I play some courses with decent hills. Steady hands are really helpful! Nice build quality, feels really solid yet light.
Si el campo en el que juegas NO ES PLANO entonces recomiendo muchisimo este finder con capacidad para medir distancias reales con la funcion de SLOPE. Una maravilla. Si juegas en campos planos, con cualquier GPS y app del celular es suficiente.
I received my range finder early happy about that, I’ve used it twice so far, first time out it took a little getting used to, it felt shaky and second time out it kept picking up trees behind flag which I didn’t like at all, overall I’m happy so far but would probably give it a higher rating once I have it down.
