New Nikon Coolshot AS promises greater accuracy

January 31, 2013

Nikon's new laser rangefinder, the COOLSHOT AS - a high performance model with improved accuracy to help golfers improve their game - will go on sale from February 2013 at a RRP of £399.99.

Featuring cutting edge technology from Nikon, the COOLSHOT AS rangefinder is an essential tool for golfers for measuring distances on the golf course. Not only does the new range finder measure the distance to the hole quickly and accurately, it also features Nikon's angle compensation technology which takes into account the height of the target, and instantly provides both the actual horizontal and slope-adjusted distance within a range of 10-550 m (11-600 yd).

The Target Priority Switch has two measurement modes: First Target and Distant Target. The First Target Priority mode is ideal for golfers because it offers a precise measurement of the distance to the flag with the push of a button. Even in difficult lighting conditions, the bright LED illuminated display is clearly visible.

The new COOLSHOT AS builds upon the success of the previous model and is set to become an essential tool to help golfers to improve their scores and improve the accuracy of their swing – useful not only for enhancing personal performance but also when preparing for competitions.

The ergonomically built COOLSHOT AS is compact, lightweight and waterproof, fitting easily into the golf bag and can be used in all weather conditions.

Key features:
• Quick and easy measurement within a range of 4.5-550 m (5-600 yd)
• Bright field of view with 6x magnification
• Compact and lightweight design – measures 113 x 39 x 70 mm; weighs 175 g (without battery)
• Angle compensation technology provides actual horizontal and slope-adjusted distance
