Leupold GX-1 Digital Golf Rangefinder – Product Review:

With precision optics, proprietary technology that ranges the pin easily (even at extended distances), and a Scan mode available at any time, the Leupold GX-1 digital golf rangefinder sets the pace for line-of-sight measurement. The GX-1 is built around its PinHunter and Prism Lock functions. Every GX-1 golf rangefinder has been precisely calibrated to fire a laser beam at the target in the crosshairs, whether it’s a flag, tree, or sand trap. The rangefinder then uses its proprietary beam geometry to gauge the returns from the pin, and its advanced GX software to accurately separate those returns from objects in the background. There’s no better way to determine exactly where a flag or water hazard is located. It’s even easier to range a distance pin on courses that utilize prism technology thanks to the GX-1’s Prism Lock. Simply hold the top button to scan the area around the pin. The moment the GX-1 identifies a prism-topped flagstick, the rangefinder will beep and the display will freeze. The PinHunter and Prism Lock features combine to make the GX-1 the most accurate golf rangefinder on the market.

The GX-1 also offers both Fog and Scan modes. Unlike most rangefinders–which give measurements from the first target returned, which in some cases is the fog between you and the pin–the GX-1 cuts through the weather to provide fast, accurate measurements to the green. You don’t let anything stand between you and the cup, so why should your rangefinder? The Scan mode, meanwhile, delivers multiple readings in one quick sweep. Just hold down the Power button and the display will continuously update with accurate line-of-sight measurements.
