Bushnell unveils incredibly clever golf laser


Just when you think they’ve done all they can do with distance measuring devices, Bushnell launches a laser that adds current weather conditions into the yardage.

The Pro XE is the first laser with Slope with Elements, which takes the temperature and altitude into account when it’s giving a distance.

“The Pro XE sets a new standard in laser rangefinders,” said Andrew Grose, Bushnell Golf Managing Director. “From improved optics and longer ranging, to convenience features like Visual Jolt and BITE, Pro XE offers features that golfers at all skill levels can appreciate. Updating our proprietary slope algorithm and adding ‘elements’ brings unmatched precision to the rangefinder industry, making it the clear choice for Tour and elite amateur players.”

The £449.99 Pro XE even has a new “Slope” algorithm to give the most accurate yardages ever. This improved function takes into account the most up-to-date ball flight measurements, giving a much sharper angle of descent over the previous algorithm.

Bushnell provides the only compensated “Play As” distance that takes actual ball flight into account, whereas other lasers use simple geometry, which is easy to calculate, but not nearly as accurate. 

The useful JOLT has also been improved –  a red ring now flashes as JOLT vibrates to give the golfer even greater feedback and confidence to know they have locked onto the flag.

Also new to the Pro XE is the introduction of “BITE”, a magnetic mount which means the unit can be safely secured to a cart or trolley without the need for an additional accessory.
