Bushnell launched its latest laser rangefinder, the Pro XE, at the PGA Merchandise Show.

The Pro XE introduces Slope with Elements, by which temperature and altitude have now been added to the company’s patented Slope technology for precise compensated distances.

“The Pro XE sets a new standard in laser rangefinders,” said John DeCastro, Bushnell Golf Global Product Director. “From improved optics and longer ranging, to convenience features like Visual Jolt and BITE, Pro XE offers features golfers at all skill levels can appreciate. Updating our proprietary slope algorithm and adding ‘elements’ brings unmatched precision to the industry, making it the clear choice for Tour and elite amateur players

The Pro XE’s new “Slope” Algorithm takes into account the most updated ball flight measures giving a much sharper angle of descent over the previous algorithm for an even more accurate “Plays As” distance.

Bushnell improves upon its JOLT technology with new Visual JOLT Technology: A red ring now flashes as JOLT vibrates.

The Pro XE is also equipped with a magnetic mount (referred to as BITE technology) that allows the device to be affixed to a cart bar without the need for an aftermarket accessory.

  • Ranges 500+ yards to a flag
  • 7X Magnification
  • Accurate within 1 yard
  • Positive click Slope Switch (Pro XE is legal for tournament play when Slope mode is disabled)
  • Enhanced Ultra-Bright Backlight Display
  • Rubber armored metal housing
  • IPX7 Fully Waterproof
  • Newly Designed Premium Carry Case includes clip for golf bag, belt loop attachment and velcro
  • golf bag strap attachment

    how to compare with pro x2? you know Range is decreased depending on the density of the fog. Have used in mild fog with good results.

    This looks so fugly. Z6 Jollt was simplistic and pure design. Less is more..
    Also gone is the soft and deeper silicone ring around the eyepiece, now hard plastic.
    Progress? Hmmm

Forum Thread of the Day: “Ball in the thick rough – what club to use?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who asks fellow members what their preferred choice of club is when their ball is in thick rough. A variety of irons and hybrids are mentioned by our members who delve into the discussion of course management.

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.

  • RainShadow: “For me, that sot would be a 7 iron, open the face a little and play a runner up to the front of the green. Open face will help a bit with getting stuck in the grass.”
  • golfgirlrobin: “Club choice depends on whether you’re willing to accept a bogey or whether you insist on making double.”
  • ChipNRun: “I would try a hinge and hold action. Take a half swing with plenty of hinge action and punch down on the ball with limited follow-through. Use the big muscles of the shoulders – you don’t want to hurt yourself trying to muscle it. Probably choose something between a PW and a 7i. You’ll need to hold firmly with L hand, so the grass doesn’t wrap around the hosel and deloft the club face.”
  • kcd38: “If it is 200 plus from the green and a decent lie, hybrid. If it is less than 200 from the green and sunk down a little, I usually go with my 8 iron and play the face slightly open knowing the grass will grab the hosel and shut the face. Definitely need some speed to get out of the thick stuff.”
