The Bushnell Pro XE Premium Slope Rangefinder

The Pro XE Offers ...

If your golfer plays on different courses or loves to get in a round or two when they travel, you have landed on the perfect gift! Because Bushnell Golf has taken slope compensation next-level.

Regular slope compensation factors in the incline/decline in the distance to the flagstick (hole). With the Pro XE, Bushnell Golf enhanced slope compensation with the Elements feature; not only does it factor in incline and decline, this worldly golf device considers temperature and elevation above sea level (Barometric pressure) to calculate even more precise distances. That alone makes it invaluable for golfers who travel and get to play a lot of different course in a variety of climates!

They'll be able to play anywhere, anytime and dial into the clubs they need with confidence. Bushnell Golf rangefinders are the #1 rangefinders in professional golf. The pros love it, and so will your golfer!

The Pro XE slope laser rangefinder also includes a super convenient BITE Magnetic Cart Mount and PinSeeker technology with JOLT to give them visual and vibrating flagstick target confirmation, and a convenient switch go tournament legal and easily shift in and out of slope mode.

The Perfect Golf Rangefinder for ...

With integrated BITE magnetic technology their laser rangefinder will always be within easy reach, so they can focus on their golf shot, not their golf gadget.

Bushnell's PinSeeker technology with JOLT doubles flagstick confirmation with a visual flashing red ring and a vibrating pulse. Plus, stunning definition and vivid color with 6x magnification are par for the course along with precise distances—yardage accuracy within 1 yard!

If you opt for the slope-compensated distance feature of the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift laser rangefinder, an enhanced slope algorithm provides even more precise tour-trusted compensated distances that account for the hole’s incline/decline.
