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)

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

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.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
