It works via a sliding cap just above the main lens with a red “Slope” line being shown when the setting is turned on to ensure no mishaps happen and the rangefinder is breaching competition rules.

The Pinseeker With Visual Jolt has been improved to with the ring around the target now flashing as well as the rangefinder vibrating when a distance is locked on. This gives golfers added confidence out on the course.

Bushnell have also now introduced a dual display, which allows golfers to choose between a red display on the screen or a black colour to the target graphics. This is a major move to cater for colour blind golfers in particular.

Bushnell lead the way when it comes to rangefinders and the Pro X3 is just another reason to back up that point.
