Bushnell Golf has once again gone to the front of the class when it comes to producing innovative and accurate laser rangefinders. The company’s latest—the Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift—demonstrate not only the newest technologies that can help golfers, but also some very subtle improvements that make this device a cut above.
From a functional standpoint, the brightness and clarity of the scope is impressive and much improved—and easy on the eyes. With the latest laser technology, the Tour V5 locks onto targets very quickly and with the Shift version of the V5 (which adds the slope feature), the new and improved slope algorithm gives very accurate readings for those uphill or downhill pins. The slope feature can be turned off and on easily with a slide button, and the changing from yards to meters is available with a side toggle switch. The accurate PinSeeker with the Visual JOLT Technology lets you know when your target is registered.
The size and shape of the Tour V5 fits easily in the hand and offers one-button operation. One of the best new features is the built-in BITE Magnetic Cart mount that allows the laser rangefinder to be secured to the metal golf cart without any additional accessories. The magnet that is embedded on the right side of the device stays nice and secure to the cart’s post with seven pounds of pull strength. This makes it extremely easy to check yardages in seconds.
“Golfers look to us to provide the most accurate distance readings on the course to perform at their highest level,” said Derek Schuman, Senior Brand Manager at Bushnell Golf. “We are constantly innovating and developing new technologies, and with the addition of our BITE magnetic cart mount, Visual JOLT and our updated slope algorithm in the Tour V5 Shift, we continue to provide golfers the products they need to increase their confidence and play better golf.”
Among the other features of the Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift is six-times magnification (objects appear six times closer); optics that are two times brighter than anything Bushnell has previously produced; accuracy to within one yard to a flag more than 400 yards away and it is rain proof.
A premium zip carry case is included that can be attached to your golf bag—and it even has a handy quick-release closure for easy access. The Tour V5 has a two-year warranty and is available at retailers nationwide.
