A few things you must know to buy a golf rangefinder


When playing golf, it is important to know the distance for 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, thereby deciding which iron in the bag to choose and the strength of the swing.

Golf is a sport that tests high precision. It is not easy to hit the ball into a hole with a diameter of only 4.25 inches in dozens of acres of open land, even if it is a needle in a haystack!

Therefore, if you want to be accurate, you must learn to judge the distance! It is essential to have a professional golf rangefinder.

1. Blindly pursue high ranging

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. In recent years, with the continuous breakthroughs in the accuracy and range of laser rangefinders, many players hope that their equipment is always accurate, so they desperately pursue high-precision, long-distance products when purchasing products. .

In fact, this kind of purchase is a misunderstanding. The choice of rangefinder should be based on its actual application scenarios. When choosing, users must choose according to the number of yards they often type. The measurement distance of the laser rangefinder is between 5 and 1300 yards, which can fully meet the ranging needs of all players.

2. Coveted and regretted

At present, the price of laser rangefinders on the market is extremely unstable, so many users use the price as a reference standard when buying, especially users who do not know the rangefinder, blindly discounting the performance, ignoring the performance. Many golfers started to complain when they used it and had to spend money on other styles.

So everyone should remember when buying a rangefinder: price is not the point, the point is the product itself. See product features clearly, choose according to your own habits and needs, and seek professional guidance if necessary.

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 the following:

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.
