Bushnell Pro X3+ FIRST LOOK & Review — From the 2024 PGA Show!

The challenge: make a state-of-the-art golf device designed to provide golfers with the most accurate and reliable distance measurements on the course even better. Did Bushnell golf do it? Let’s find out!

It’s only been a little over a year since Bushnell announced the Pro X3 rangefinder that integrated several significant updates and features following their popular Pro XE model. Bushnell Golf has been the king of the rangefinder class for years, so putting a plus sign after the Pro X3 might be like putting a plus sign after Tiger Woods’s name.

There’s just not a lot to improve on with a piece of proven golf tech like this.

But Bushnell is not a brand to sit back on its tech and marketing laurels. So, they gave their flagship laser rangefinder a new look and a cool new feature.

And while at the 2024 PGA Show in Orlando, our PlayBetter team got to see it up close and personal! Let’s see what we know so far while going over what makes this golf rangefinder the best in class.

Bushnell Pro X3 Rangefinder Features & Performance Capabilities

New Wind Speed & Direction when Connected to the Free Bushnell Golf App.

Now when you look through the reticle of the Bushnell Pro X3+, you will see two distances that show the strength of the wind and which direction it’s blowing. You’ll get that every time you look into this device—now, that’s cool.

Next-Level, Tour-Trusted Compensated Distances

Temperature and altitude are factored into Bushnell’s patented Slope technology to give golfers the most precise compensated distances ever.

Home Elevation Adjustment

In the elevation where you play the most golf, you can factor that into this Bushnell rangefinder as your home elevation to get Slope distances accordingly.

Dual Display

Allows users the ability to easily toggle between the bright red or crisp black display settings based on lighting conditions and user preference.

Patented Locking Slope-Switch

The Locking Slope-Switch Technology lets the golfer easily switch the Pro X3+ in and out of Slope mode. This Bushnell Pro X3+ golf rangefinder is legal during tournament play when Slope is disabled.

Patented PinSeeker with Visual Jolt

When looking through the reticle, a red ring flashes while JOLT vibrates to give you better feedback and confidence to know you have locked onto the flag.

Integrated BITE Magnetic Mount

The Pro X3+ features Bushnell’s integrated BITE magnetic mount that allows you to easily mount your golf laser rangefinder conveniently within reach, right on the cart bar.

Accurate Yardage Readings

Many reviewers, and our own partners, found the Pro X3 to be the most powerful golf laser rangefinder out there, reliably offering consistent yardage readings within a yard to flags at 600+ yards. We’re excited for our golf reviewer Marc to give the new Pro X3+ a whirl.

Bushnell Pro X3+ Durability

This top golf rangefinder has a rugged rubber armored metal housing and is fully waterproof with an IPX7 rating.

More Performance Features

Created by the experts at Bushnell, the Pro X3+ ranges 600+ yards to the flag and offers 7x magnification.
