When playing golf, knowing the distance is very important the first time, which determines the performance. In practice, players often judge the distance from the ball to the flagstick through visual inspection by themselves or the caddie to decide which iron to choose in the bag and the strength of the swing. In addition to the player's own level, the choice of professional equipment is also very important, the most direct of which is the laser rangefinder (single telescope type rangefinder).
Misunderstandings that are easy to appear when buying a laser rangefinder:
1. Pursuing high goals blindly
Any product has its own technical indicators, and a high indicator certainly means a higher performance. The most important technical indicators of a golf rangefinder are its measuring range and accuracy. With the continuous breakthroughs in precision and ranging technology of laser rangefinders in recent years, many players want their equipment to be accurate at all times, so they are desperately pursuing high-precision and high-ranging products when purchasing products. In fact, this kind of purchase is a misunderstanding. The rangefinder cannot satisfy the condition of fully satisfying the parameters. There are many interference factors such as harsh environment, complex terrain, and actual measurement targets. At the time of purchase, if the user wants to measure the effect of 600 meters, do not choose a rangefinder with a parameter of 600.
Second, blindly pursue high prices
Nowadays, the price of laser rangefinders in the market is extremely unstable, so many users think that high-priced products are good when they buy, regardless of performance and applicability. They often start to complain when they use it, and then have to spend money to buy other styles. So when you buy a rangefinder, please remember: price is not the point, the point is the product itself. See product features clearly and don't blindly pursue low prices. Note that the product's function parameters are wrong and the function is not so complicated. Choose according to your own habits and needs. If necessary, you can seek professional guidance.
3. Ignore "safe" and "unsafe"
As the name suggests, laser rangefinders work with laser as the main working material. At present, the working materials of handheld laser rangefinders on the market mainly include:
Semiconductor lasers with operating wavelengths of 905 nanometers and 1540 nanometers, and YAG lasers with operating wavelengths of 1064 nanometers.
The wavelength of 1064 nanometers is harmful to human skin and eyes, especially eyes. Once exposed to a laser with a wavelength of 1064 nanometers, it may cause permanent damage. Therefore, the manufacture of foreign handheld laser rangefinders has completely banned 1064 nanometer lasers. However, in China, there are still some manufacturers producing 1064nm laser rangefinders, so you should pay attention to them when you buy them.
To eliminate these misunderstandings, players can quickly choose the rangefinder that suits them and achieve good results.
