Bushnell Golf, makers of the #1 Laser rangefinder on Tour, today unveiled the new Tour V4 family of rangefinders. The Tour V4 and Tour V4 Slope Edition are faster than their predecessor, 30% smaller and more ergonomically designed to increase the ease and accuracy in acquiring yardages. The Tour V4 Slope Edition uses patented, Tour trusted Slope technology to provide compensated distances for elevation changes.
The R&A/USGA’s revision of rule 14-3, effective January first, 2016 enables players to use DMD with a slope function, so long as the function is disabled during play. Bushnell designed the Tour V4 Slope Edition with the ability to turn the slope function on and off, making it legal for tournament play.
‘Our Slope technology is counted on by PGA Tour Professionals and playing pros around the world,’ said Scott Peterson, Senior Product Manager at Bushnell. ‘In the past, amateurs have been reluctant to purchase rangefinders with Slope Technology. With the new USGA rule change, the Tour V4 Slope will now be conforming during tournament play and for posting handicap rounds by turning slope mode off.’
Continuing the trend of evolving precision through industry-leading technologies, Bushnell Golf is also proud to include JOLT Technology in their new line of Tour V4 Laser rangefinders. When the golfer aims the Tour V4 at a flag, JOLT Technology provides short vibrating bursts to signal Bushnell’s advanced PinSeeker Technology has isolated the target and locked onto the flag. Along with the JOLT Technology, a faster processor has been incorporated into the unit to provide yardage readings faster than the Tour V3.
In 2016, Bushnell is also introducing its new range of neo iON GOLF GPS watches in three new colours. The neo iON, Bushnell’s lightest and thinnest golf watch, has been redesigned to meet the ever-changing needs of golfers wanting wrist-mounted devices and comes pre-loaded with more than 35,000 courses in over 30 countries. In addition, it’s equipped with a new integrated step counter and charging clip design while boasting market-leading battery life. The neo iON is an easy-to-use GPS rangefinder with instant yardage measurements in a simple, fashion-forward design and with no membership fees.
