Nikon has announced the release of new laser rangefinders the COOLSHOT 40 and COOLSHOT 40i for the UK golf market, measuring up to 590 meters/650 yards and lighter than ever.
The COOLSHOT 40 is designed exclusively for measuring actual distance and can be used for competition if local rules permit the use of a laser rangefinder.
The COOLSHOT 40i (pictured above) incorporates Nikon's angle compensation technology, which displays the slope-adjusted distance (horizontal distance ± height) and is ideal for use on golf courses with uphill and downhill slopes.
Claudia Paul, head of UK Sports Optics division, said: "We're delighted to be able to offer golfers two new laser rangefinders and are confident that customers are going to enjoy our new HYPER READ technology, which makes it even quicker to the get the right number every time."
