by Carly Cummins
August 07, 2012

Price: £270

They say: Compact size with the power you've always wanted. The Tour V2 laser rangefinder rests in your hand with an ergonomic precision that builds confidence and pride. Its guts are 100% Bushnell laser rangefinder and the package outside rivals your favourite driver with a custom high-tack grip. PinSeeker Technology ensures accurate target acquisition by shutting out background hazards and isolating your target. The Tour V2 sets the standard in the complete laser rangefinder package - look, feel and performance. Its features are:

* Tour Certified
* PinSeeker Technology to zero in on the flag
* Up to +/- 1 yard accuracy
* 5 yards - 1,000 yards ranging performance (300 yards to a flag)
* 5x Magnification (objects appear 5x closer)
* Posi-Thread Battery Door
* 3-Volt Battery and Premium Carry Case are also included
* Rainproof Construction
* 2 Year Warranty

I say: I've used a rangefinder before so I already knew how invaluable they are for accurate yardages, but it wasn't until I tested the Bushnell Tour V2 that I realised just how easy and simple the function could be. I've previously owned a competitors model and I've struggled at times to keep my hand steady enough to pick up the flag for enough seconds to get my yardage. This was simply not the case with the Bushnell Tour V2, all I had to do was point and click. The rangefinder was very comfortable to hold in my hand and easy to keep steady and the big button on the top pressed down with ease. Literally one look at the flag and I had all the information I needed and there was no doubt. The girlie side of me loves the fact that I can buy this rangefinder in a colour other than black (there's white and pink to choose from) and it comes with a handy little holder bag that can hang on the side of your golf bag so that it is easy to access. The plastic shell means that it will be resilient to the rain so you don't have to worry about corrosion or being caught out in a shower. All in all the V2 is hard to fault and believe you me it really does help with the speed of play to know that you can walk straight to your ball and then get your yardage in a second. If you are not carrying one of these invaluable tools in your golf bag yet then you're losing out, they've an amazing addition.
