The Rife RX5 Deluxe Rangefinder is the premium distance measuring device from the manufacturer. How does it compare to the RX4 rangefinder?

When looking for the exact distance to a flagstick or hazard, it can be difficult to know just how far away it is.

Rife’s RX5 Deluxe Rangefinder makes that easier than ever before, but significantly with a far more attractive price tag than some of the more better known brands on the market.

“Gain a competitive edge when playing golf, with the RX5 laser rangefinder. Sleek in design with an LCD display which provides highly accurate distance calculations to within 0.5m of distance.

“The rangefinder has power and measurement buttons and an eyepiece adjuster to give you clear and precise 6 x magnification performance.

Rife RX5 Deluxe Rangefinder Design & Features

This rangefinder has laser accurate distance because it features a very precise laser emitting lens and a receiver that both work together to produce an amazing range.

The Rife RX5 Deluxe Rangefinder is a Class-1 Laser Product and is accurate to a distance of about half-a-metre from the desired target thanks to a six-time magnification lens.

The modes include slope compensation with slope adjustment built in. If you are looking up an incline or down a decline, this product will still be able to produce accurate results for you.

Verdict: Is the Rife RX5 Deluxe Rangefinder any good?

This kind of product is mainly about club selection and about gaining an advantage by hitting the right club for the conditions.

Rife’s RX5 certainly helps achieve that with distances to within 0.5 metres – whether that is the flagstick, a hazard or a measurement you have needed before taking your shot.

It isn’t as accurate as some of the more costly rangefinders on the market, but you get good value for money with this version. You certainly should be out with the clubbing on the course.
