Searching for a revolutionary laser rangefinder?
The limited-edition Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Golf Rangefinder is certainly one to add to your wish list in 2022 and is available to purchase online for a competitive price here at Clarkes’ Golf Centre.
Bushnell rangefinders: what do we know about them?
Bushnell has led the way in laser rangefinder technology for a long time.
They provide some of the best distance-measuring devices on the market right now, of which a whopping 97% of PGA Tour players use. If they’re good enough for the pros, they’ve got to be good enough for you!
Something that sets Bushnell apart from other manufacturing brands is their experts have worked extremely hard to accommodate the needs of all golfers – providing them with the tools they need to read the course and analyse their game.
Every Bushnell rangefinder boasts high accuracy and advanced features. This allows professionals and amateurs alike to play better golf.
So, what makes the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Golf Rangefinder so special? And why should you make it your number one choice?
Here we take a closer look at the magnificent features of the Tour V5 Shift Laser Rangefinder.
PinSeeker with visual JOLT technology
One of the hottest features on the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift is JOLT technology.
When you aim any Bushnell rangefinder at the pin, the device gives a short vibrating burst to let you know when it’s locked onto the target.
Whilst you’ll still feel the vibrating pulse with the Tour V5 Shift, you’ll also see a flashing red ring around the display when the target is acquired. This is thanks to visual JOLT technology and provides you with greater confidence in the yardage being displayed.
Built-in BITE magnetic cart mount
A gadget that isn’t easy to use, carry and store probably isn’t going to get used a lot. However, Bushnell has included the BITE magnetic mount into the design of the Tour V5 Shift Limited Edition Laser Rangefinder, allowing golfers to attach the laser to their trolley or buggy without needing any clips or cases.
The beauty of the BITE magnetic mount is that it offers 7lbs of pull strength, so will remain in place throughout the round, and it can be attached and put away in half a second. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that, does it?
New, improved slope algorithm
The slope algorithm presented one of the biggest breakthroughs in laser rangefinder technology.
As most golfers are well aware, the yardage of each golf shot can’t be based on distance alone – you need to take other factors into account, including the incline or decline of the hole so you know how to approach the shot.
Unlike previous models, the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Laser Golf Rangefinder uses the perfect combination of distance and patented slope technology. It provides a compensated distance that adjusts yardage based on elevation change.
Slope switch technology
In a regular round of golf with your pals, slope compensation readings can be a godsend. However, this handy feature cannot be used in tournaments.
Luckily, the Tour V5 Shift model comes with slope switch technology which means you can turn off the slope function using an easy-to-use slider. It’s 100% legal during tournament games.
With 6x magnification, clearer definition, and more vivid colours, the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Laser Rangefinder has the best display to date.
Although you won’t get the dual-display technology that came with the Pro X2 rangefinder, you can expect a crisp yet informative visual of your target and the surrounding terrain.
No matter when and where you invest in the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift Rangefinder, you’ll reap the benefit of free access to the Bushnell Golf App, which provides GPS distances for more than 36,000 golf courses worldwide.
What’s more, the Bushnell app allows you to view flyovers in 3D whilst also keeping track of your scores and booking tee times – all from your smartphone device.
