Bushnell has complimented the Tour V3 standard edition for its golf laser rangefinder with slope technology. Meaning its possible to measure accurately in sloppy or geometric surface with the new Bushnell tour V3 slope edition golf laser rangefinder. Bushnell brand is known for its product innovations and use of advanced technologies. Tour V3 slope edition is a unique product as no many rangers out there has this features.
The slope technology addition to the Tour V3 has eliminated the limitation in accurate distance measurement due to uneven surfaces in the golf courses. The in-built inclinometer in the Tour V3 slope edition determines the exact slope angle and the device computes the angle adjusted range. The data is integrated with the average club use and ball trajectories related internal algorithmic formulas. This enables the golfer to decide on the better way to take a shot to reach the target. The inclinometer can display the exact slope angle from -20 to +20 degrees of elevation and has an accuracy of +/- 1.0 degree.
As common with all Bushnell products is the Pinseeker and Jolt mode. The Pinseeker mode enables the user to acquire the target easily without taking into account the background objects like trees that may have stronger signal strength, while the Jolt technology gives an indication for the completion of the Pinseeker process through a vibration. When the distance to the target is displayed on the LCD after detection of the flagstick, the Jolt technology triggers a vibration which notifies you of the completion of the seeking process.
Tour V3 slope edition is light and weigh 6.6 ounces. With a dimension of 1.6 x4.2 x 2.8, this device can fit anywhere and can be carried comfortably on the course. The vertical device is designed in a shape that fits the users hand perfectly and has good grip points that provide a comfortable form and feel. Tour V3 comes with a carry case and is also equipped with a 3-volt alkaline battery installed. The device is rainproof making it usable by the golfer in wet climatic condition.
The Bushnell Tour V3 slope edition also features 5x magnification and multi coated optics. The 5x magnification displays distant targeted objects with clarity and detail covering. The instrument also has an adjustable eyepiece with plus or minus 2 Diopter adjustments for enabling focus on the target. The Multi coated optics ensures high light transmission for optimum resolution for clearer view of objects even during low light conditions. A tripod mount is moulded at the bottom of the device for easy attachment to the cart mount accessory. The Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) of the device has indicators that specify the unit of measure being used (yards or meters). The tour V3 also allows you to select or choose between measuring in yards or meters. You can also switch on the Jolt technology through selective targeting modes.
Tour V3 Slope Edition is a great investment for an ardent golfer. The slope technology takes away most of the guesswork from the play and facilitates decision on shots on any slope adjusted ranges. The slope edition of Tour V3 is not tour certified, hence, cannot be used while playing tournaments. Avid golfers who play more of tournaments might as well go with the Tour V3 standard edition which inhibits all other features except slope mode and is also legal to be used in tournaments. However most golfers like this little baby because it helps them to estimate better and improve their game. It is typically used to perfect their game.
