Team PlayBetter is spending the week searching for golf's hottest new products at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL. Rough life, we know.
Year-in and year-out Bushnell has released some of golf’s best rangefinder units but in 2017 they seem to have outdone themselves - especially with their top-of-the-line model, the Pro X2.
The company announced the release of their new rangefinder line here at the PGA Show (which reduces the total rangefinder line to just three units) and we wanted to be the first to introduce you to the new bad boy in the world of golf laser rangefinders.
Taking the best from both the old Tour Z6 and Tour X models, the Pro X2 sits atop of the Bushnell line in features despite brandishing a price-point considerably lower than the company’s previous spendy top models (see: X7).
This unit is 100% tournament legal thanks to what we think is Bushnell’s coolest technology upgrade; the slope toggle switch.
No longer will you have to remove a face panel to deactivate the slope feature, as was the case on the Tour X, nor will you have to navigate your way through the Mode menu on the device’s interface (as is the case on some rangefinders) but now by simply toggling the switch built into the device’s logo you’ll be able to turn off slope and make the rangefinder completely tournament legal.
And just in case you were planning on taking this bad boy onto a battlefield, the Pro X2 features a tough, rubber metal armored housing that is completely waterproof that will ensure it will hold up under any conditions (similar to the durable Tour Z6).
And then (yes, there's more) there's the Dual Display technology. This means the user can switch the interface color back and forth between red or black depending on preference and conditions. We're big fans on the red display and love the fact that it's yet another options available on this device.
The Pro X2 keeps in tact all of the features that have made previous Bushnell rangefinders such a hit, including their patented PinSeeker with JOLT technology which ensure an accurate lock on the flag. Their E.S.P. technology (how fast the readings are presented) has also been upgraded to be 5X faster than previous models aka instant gratification!
Here's a full list of the Bushnell Pro X2 Rangefinder's features:
