Precision Pro golf adds NX7, NX7 Pro rangefinders to lineup

Published

on

Precision Pro Golf is poised to launch a pair of rangefinders—the NX7 and NX7 Pro—at the PGA Merchandise Show next week.

The NX7, which will retail for $199.95, is the successor to the Nexus Rangefinder. The NX7 features Precision Pro’s one-second Target Lock function, a 30 percent faster laser and a compact design that’s 25 percent smaller than the Nexus.

The NX7 Pro, which retails for $249.95, includes all of the features of the NX7 model. The Pro adds Adaptive Slope Technology, which allows golfers to measure elevation. The NX7 Pro is tournament legal, as the slope mode can be turned off. Another Pro feature: Pulse Vibration Technology, which pulses when the rangefinder locks onto the target.

“The NX7 and NX7 Pro Rangefinders are our 4th generation products. We’ve put in a lot of work to improve the accuracy, durability and design,” says Clay Hood, PGA, Co-Founder of Precision Pro Golf. “The NX7 Rangefinders are our most advanced and accurate models that will compete head to head with the more expensive rangefinder brands that sell for $299-$399.”

Precision Pro Golf is offering a mail-in rebate promotion starting March 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017 that will offer a $30 rebate for the NX7 and a $50 rebate for the NX7 Pro (available in US market only). The company will be at the PGA Merchandise Show in booth #1606.

    Picked one of these up (the pro model) and couldn’t be happier. Its easy to use, has all the features of Bushnell and was inexpensive. Been pushing them hard to my customers ever since.

    Can’t wait, definitely going to pick the NX7 Pro up. Can’t see any difference (spec wise) to go for something like 2017 V4 or V4 Switch. Looking forward to trying it out and definitely going to point my friends in this direction.

    Sounds like a terrific range finder – can’t wait to check it out – but a “30% faster laser” ? Your light is 30% faster than regular light ? What would Einstein say ? 😀

      The NX7 Rangefinder has a dynamic scanning target lock that allows you to scan over the flag 2-3 times and lock in the exact distance (eliminating background images). We have improved the Target Lock speed to just under 1 second (30% faster than the NEXUS RANGEFINDER). FYI: Every rangefinder has the same 905nm laser (regulated as a class 1 laser by the FDA) and you each company can modify the functionality of the laser to work differently.

      Hope this information helps! 🙂

    This product looks and sounds like the perfect Rang Finder. I would buy this NOW! Trying to get one now because the price is super reasonable.

    Scoreband has a slope rangefinder for quite a bit less and the same functions.

      Scoreband doesnt offer a 2-year warranty or the best customer service in the industry. We designed the NX7 to compete with the V4 in terms of quality, accuracy and performance.

    Been interested in a rangefinder for a couple years now. May just have to pick one of the up. Hopefully it works with my not so steady hands.

      Mark, the NX7 Rangefinder has a different type of target lock function (nothing like it on the market). We have a 1-second dynamic scanning target lock function that allows you to scan over the flag for 1-second to lock in the actual distance, eliminating any background images such as trees.

      When we were launching our company back in 2013, the one issue we heard from 75% of golfers we surveyed was the “shaky hands” issue and this was one reason they purchased a rangefinder. The dynamic scanning target lock eliminates this issue completely in the NX7 rangefinder (and the NEXUS rangefinder – 2015 model).

      As avid golfers, we stand behind all of our products and offer best in industry customer service if there are any issues with our line of Rangefinders or GPS Products.

      Thanks

      I have shaky hands and have the NX7 Pro. This was my biggest concern. I used it for the first time Tuesday and it worked great. The way the NX7 Pro is set to scan a flag, it seems that it benefits shaky hands. I just point right at the flag and my natural shake sends the rangefinder back and forth across the flag and about 1-2 seconds later, I get the vibration notification and the yardage for distance and distance adjusted for slope. Very fast and very easy to use.

    The NX7 Rangefinders will also offer a 2-year manufacturer warranty, inline with the competitors warranty programs. We are also offering free battery replacements for the NX7 line (3-volt CR2 battery)

GolfWRX Spotlight: Arias True Zero Offset D-23 irons

Published

on

Product: Arias True Zero Offset D-23 irons 

Pitch: From the company…

  • Easiest irons to align at the target on the market.
  • Classic no offset look at address reminiscent of past generation’s most iconic iron designs.
  • Full cavity back, midsize blade length, blade height and sole width
  • Modern friendly sole grind with beveled leading and trailing edge makes this iron easy to play both from the fairway and the rough
  • 431SS with proprietary heat treatment.

Our take on the Arias Zero Offset D-23 irons

There are a lot of parameters involved in the design of an iron, including, but not limited to: material, blade length, sole width, camber, bounce, hosel length, groove configuration, and of course offset. Offset is one of the design characteristics that can be quite polarizing from a looks perspective, depending on the golfer. We golfers are a picky bunch when it comes to how our clubs look, but that has less to do with handicap or skill level and more to do with just plain personal preference.

That’s where J.R Robert comes in. Hailing from a custom fitting and building background, with years of experience and having a preference for zero offset clubs, he set out to design an iron that would be both preferred by the better players but playable for golfers of varying skill level that prefer a club with no offset. The result is the Arias D-23 with True Zero Offset.

I got the chance to speak with J.R about his design and he explained his goals for the D-23 irons

“The goal was to create an iron model that was forgiving enough for a higher handicap player while blending together features the better player would demand.”

Through prototyping and testing, J.R found the D-23 zero offset helped golfers with alignment issues get set up to there intended target easier, and for those who had issues with missing left (speaking to right-handed golfers) the Zero Offset D-23 helped correct for that too. J.R admits that although they are very playable, golfers that struggle with leaving the face open at impact might not be the ideal candidates.  Also, those who are used to offset in their clubs might at first be turned away from the design, but for players that have always enjoyed the look of a club with less offset, these are clubs that should go right to the top of the list.

For more information on the D-23s, along with the line of M-29 onset wedges from Arias Golf, you can visit their website at True Zero Offset

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your favorite blade irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from moorebaseball, who asks fellow members what their favorite blade irons are. Our members discuss what blades they consider to be best for them, and why, while also contributing plenty of great photos of their prized possessions.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • greenpiece: “MP-14 is my all-time favorite. Great feel, turf interaction, and control.”
  • BMC: “The Callaway 2018 Apex MB feel incredible and are fairly easy to hit. I started playing blades in 1988 – Wilson Staff fluid feel. Those Apexes are sweet.”
  • bodhi555: “I’d say any of the models Nike brought out when they were in the game – the OGs, VR TW or VR Pros. Current favourites are the VR Pros, usual great Nike looks and crisp feel, but the grooves are savage and put unreal amounts of spin on the ball. No harder to hit than a player’s CB either. Only challenge is finding a decent set. It took me 18 months of scouring eBay and Golfbidder to find mine.”
  • bfp9: “My favorites: 2006 Hogan Apex. OG Nike Blades. Taylormade RAC TP MB. Mizuno MP-32. I’ve only hit older blades as you can see. I tried the PXG experiment, and that failed, so I’m sticking to what I know. To me old blades = new blades. Nothing has changed significantly enough to warrant new ones for me, except the grooves wearing thin on my Hogans.”
  • kiwi1982: “MP-69. Traditional, proper weighting, great feel.”
