• They say it's 'faster and more accurate' than ever
• The Tour X is packed full of technology
Just over a month ago we saw the launch of Bushnell's new NEO Ghost rangefinder, another new product has just been announced in the form of the Tour X laser rangefinder.
Boasting the status as the No.1 laser rangefinder on the PGA Tour, one was used by 97% of the field at last year’s Players Championship during practice days, the Tour X comes with two interchangeable faceplates that make it legal for use in all formats of the game.
Named Exchange Technology, the Tour X conforms to the rules when the black faceplate is used but not with the red faceplate, which uses Slope Technology to give adjusted distanced readings that are based on elevation changes.
Bushnell’s JOLT Technology also features with its short, vibrating bursts assisting the PinSeeker Technology to isolate the target and ensure you get the exact distance to the flag.
Second generation E.S.P. technology has been installed, too, with Bushnell saying it works to give yardages five times faster and more accurately than before, with the distance displayed to within 1/10th of a yard.
Scott Peterson, Bushnell’s senior product manager, said: “We are proud to unveil our most feature-packed laser rangefinder to date, which continues our legacy of dominance in professional golf.
“The introduction of the Tour X once again proves we are not only committed to the Tour player, but also the elite amateur player who requires precise yardage reading during practice and tournament rounds.”
