For a few months I’ve had the Bushnell 201540 Bushnell Tour X Jolt Golf Laser GPS/Rangefinder in play. I’ve been very happy with the performance and accuracy of this rangefinder. If only I could be as accurate at hitting my yardages as this unit is at supplying them to me.
Bushnell TourX Golf Laser Rangefinder Features
On The Course
As the flagship laser from Bushnell I would expect nothing less than a fast, dependable, and accurate reading. That’s exactly what the unit produces. The reading is probably the fastest of any laser I’ve reviewed to date. The yardage is spot-on the first time, unlike some less expensive Bushnell units which can sometimes produce a different yardage every time the same yardage is shot.
Accessing the unit is easy in the very nice zippered case which can hang on the golf bag. An elastic loop
I tried the slope feature for a few holes but ended up switching to the non-slope mode. I record all of my rounds for my handicap and don’t want any illegally used clubs or accessories affecting my handicap.
Once again, the red plate is the not-for-tournament-play version. To be legal the black plate must be installed.
Pros and Cons
The pros to this unit are super-accurate yardages with lightning (maybe I should say “laser”) speed.
The cons are the size of the unit and the cost. This laser is larger in size than many on the market. The retail price is an astounding $680 but most street prices are at or below $499.
The Bushnell TourX is a case of “you get what you pay for.” This is the fastest and most accurate laser rangefinder I’ve tested to date.
