Bushnell Golf reveal new V5 Tour Slim Edition and the V5 Shift Slim Edition laser rangefinders.
Bushnell Golf’s V5 rangefinders have a new slimmed down appearance for 2021. By moving the battery housing to the back of the unit and slimming down the outer casing, Bushnell say they have produced an ergonomically designed laser that fits snugly into the palm of the hand that creates “the minimum of interference when acquiring a target”.

“Golfers look to us to provide the most accurate distance readings on the course” said Andrew Grose, Managing Director, YUMAX Golf. “Bushnell are constantly innovating and developing new technologies, and their BITE magnetic cart mount and Visual JOLT technologies remain industry leaders in their field.
“Making a relatively small physical change has allowed us to go one step further in making a laser that can be held steady by all users, in all conditions for even greater confidence when out on the course”.
The rangefinders are designed to create confidence for every shot needed in the round.
Both the V5 Shift Slim Edition (RRP £359) and V5 Tour Slim Edition (RRP £299) are accurate to within one yard with up to 1,300-yard range performance (400+ yards to a flag) and six-times magnification.

The rain proof devices feature a Fast Focus Systemt and Bushnell’s PinSeeker with Visual JOLT Technology, with a red ring that flashes as JOLT vibrates to provide golfers even greater feedback and confidence when they have locked onto the flag.
The built-in BITE technology allows golfers to securely attach their rangefinder to a golf cart or trolley. A pull strength of 7lb means golfers can be safe in the knowledge their rangefinder will stay in place.
The higher-priced V5 Shift Slim also includes new, improved slope algorithm and Slope-Switch Technology.
Both rangefinders come with a premium carry case, three-volt battery, two ball markers and a three-volt battery.
