Just purchased a brand new Pro X7 rangefinder and I've used it twice on the course.
When I shoot a pin and get the "jolt" I get different yardages to the same pin with subsequent pushes of the button. i.e. 127 then 122 then 131 etc.  

Any ideas? I'm coming from a 1600 Slope edition and pretty disappointed so far.

It sounds like you may have gotten a unit that is out of alignment.  The Pro X7 laser is the most powerful rangefinder Bushnell makes, so it shouldn't be jumping around like that.  Where did you buy the unit?

Does anyone know why Bushnell has eliminated the ProX7 from their current line?  It was their flagship model...

Apparently it is nigh impossible to sell horizontal-format rangefinders nowadays.

I read somewhere that at least 80% of tour players use this rangefinder. Watching Jordan warm up on the range this was the one his caddie was using.  Also watched a video on line of rickie on the 17th hold hitting some weird shots and he shot the flag with this one

It's what my teaching pro uses and I've also seen s few college players use them in practice. But Since the Tour V2 style came out I've never seen a horizontal one among the usual hacks I play with. The only reason I've never bought one is they are so darned expensive.

But in another rangefinder thread recently a Bushnell rep said the horizontal ones don't sell nowadays at all.

According to the Bushnell tour rep, it's 90% of tour players now.  

Maybe next year they will bring out a new version to the public.

How can you tell the difference between a prox7 that has slope and one that does not? Do all have slope in them? Thanks.
