This is a two part review both on the product and Overstock. The first item I received did not work. I contacted Overstock and within a few hours they sent UPS shipping labels. I mailed the product back the next morning and within a few hours they sent the product and sent me the shipping track information. Since this involved a considerable sum of money I had been worried whether this incredibly good price could have been a disaster, but Overstock was incredible, efficient, polite, and came through.The product I purchased was the Bushnell LaserRange Finder V2 with Slope. I had the opportunity to use a friend's when we played together the last year and a half and was convinced I needed one myself. This is the best of breed, with the inclination compensation the accuracy is outstanding. It lets you stand up over shots with confidence on what you are trying to do so when you execute the shot you have no doubts that if you make a good swing you won't be surprised by being long or short of the pin. Playing with it often lets you really fine tune your distance, in over a year it lets me know precisely that an easy 9 iron will go 144 yards, a little more aggressive will go 148 and choking down an inch will get me 140. This makes the difference of about 5 shots a round, especially when you are playing a new course. It is the difference of me playing in the 70's versus low 80's.It is a must have item for the serious golfer. Buying through Overstock is too, they really came through for me.

I have used my Bushnell range finder for six rounds since receiving it two weeks ago. I also have a Skycaddie SG3 and find the Bushnell easier and faster to use. This allows me to point and shoot the distance without the need to look at distances that don't pertain to me on the Skycaddie. I also don't have to pay a yearly fee as with Skycaddie. I especially like the "slope" feature which adjusts uphill and downhill distances into actual yardage needed for that particular shot. I also use it at the driving range and have used it around the yard to get distances for flowerbeds, the garden, etc. Some have complained that the Bushnell uses up batteries and they are expensive. The battery is normally around $7.00 from places like Office Max but I went online and bought four of them for less than $3.00 each. That's a lot of batteries for the $50 fee Skycaddie charges per year. Overstock was also easy to deal with and my Bushnell arrived before the time frame given by Overstock.

Great rangefinder at a very good price on Overstock. Pinseeker mode makes it easy to get distance to flag, except might have a little trouble beyond 250 yards on a bright day. Compact design allows for one handed operation. Slope feature is nice to have on large elevation changes. I might get another one without the slope feature for use in tournament play. I was surprised at how far off the posted yardage was vs true yardage displayed by the V2 on many occasions (and the V2 was always the right yardage). This is a must have tool for serious golfers wanting to understand the true distance they hit every club in the bag. Nice to use at the driving range before a round to see how far you're hitting them that day. 5 stars.

We have not used the product. Got it to late in the season.

I bought this for my son-in-law. He's hoping it will do wonders for his game.

Showing the GPS on this wristband suggests that it comes with it. Picture should not contain the GPS.

this item is cheaper on Amazon and Ebay. I have been doing a lot of research on items like these.

good price, functions well, after a little trial and error, will have to wait 'till spring to use it more often.

Nice product, small and compact. Takes a bit to get used to the technique as it is a manual and not a digital scope.

For the price, you cannot beat it. I find that it works well for me as a new golfer.

Small and different that others I have seen, but worth the price paid.

This was purchased as a gift . The recipient seems to like it though, so far, he hasn't had much opportunity to use it.

I was expecting a more accurate distance, the glass was off after 50 yards

Most Misleading Ad I Have Ever Seen. Would Not Ask Anybody To Purchase This Product.

There is a reason that Laser and GPS units cost what they do; they work. This device is a low magnification monocular, with measurement "grid" on the optical lens for "estimating " distances. Lot of work for very little accuracy.

Small, simple and a good basic golf tool to have on the course for when you need a quick gauge of distance and nothing else is available to utilize for gauging distance.
You have the fancy clubs, the shiny shoes and the knickers, but your golf game still isn't under par. What are you to do? Well, more and better golf equipment probably won't make you better at golf (you're at the mercy of practice and genetics there), but some of the latest golf gadgets can certainly make a round of golf more enjoyable.
