Today was the first time that I have been able to use the Precision Pro NX7 Pro rangefinder and the verdict is still out.  Overall, I am not very pleased with its performance.  My last range finder was an old Bushnell 1500 that died about a year ago and it was always spot on.

Speed – it worked very fast.  No problem with speed.

Repeatability - This is where I found the unit to be very inconsistent.  There was no wind today so the flag was never moving.  I could shoot the flag 6 times and would come up with 4 or 5 different readings anywhere from a 4 to 12 yard difference between the long and the short distances. It made no sense.

Overall verdict – still thinking about it but not very happy with it.

I was hoping to use this later this week in our member / guest but I am afraid of the numbers it is giving me.  Back to the GPS

My NX7 Pro showed up today.  Took it to the range and compared it to my other rangefinder.  Numbers were exactly the same, plus it was nice to see the slope yardage as well on a couple of the flags, more up hill than expected.  Hopefully, I will get out next weekend and test it on the course.

I'm sorry that you're experiencing issues with your rangefinder. This definitely doesn't sound right. It looks like you also contacted our support team. Alex, our operations manager, is going to get back with you ASAP. But let me assure you that we'll either find a way to get your rangefinder working correctly or we'll replace the unit for you.

Again, sorry that you're experiencing these issues, but we'll do our best to get it fixed.

Hi CrazyGolfNut,

We just wanted to follow up and see how your round went on Wednesday with your rangefinder. We hope it all went well, but please let us know if there were any issues.

Thanks for asking.  I have used this a lot over the past several days and am very happy with it.

I played 9 on Wednesday in league along with 18 on Thursday and 27 today during our member guest event.  Now that I have used it, I believe that my problems were operator error.  I received advise that I might be aiming a little too low which was picking up the ground in front of the green.  I started aiming higher on the flag stick and had no problems.  I let several other people try it out and they all liked it.  We compared the distance with several name brand rangefinders and they were all very close to each other.  

Overall, I am very pleased with the operation of the unit and the response that I received from the company.

Hope I did not come across too negative with my initial thoughts.

I have about 8 rounds on my NX7. Ive been very pleased with it - nice comfortable size and I have not had any performance issues whatsoever.

I like the pulse technology when it locks in on the flag.

The carry case has a nice touch - it zips open and closed, but when its open you can use a stretchy strap that keeps it together so the rangefinder doesnt jump out of the case. Its much quick way of securing it without having to zip and unzip each time.

Overall I dont think Im missing out on any performance compared to models that are double the price.

I have had my NX7 Pro for a while now and until this weekend it has worked perfectly.  I started having problems all of a sudden on Saturday morning and the unit was not working properly at all.  Fortunately my partner had a range finder, but I was without mine for our last two rounds.  I have tried to contact Precision Pro all morning and I have not been able to get in contact with anyone in customer service.

Used mine for the first time this weekend, loved it. Point and shoot, does exactly what it says. Extra bonus points for shipping to Hawaii in 3-4 days for FREE. That in itself is unbelievable.

I have had this rangefinder for a few months now and I can say the numbers are within 1yard with any other model inside 170 yards. I notice that after 170yards it begins to show numbers 2,3,4 yards longer than the newer model Bushnells. I only notice this difference beyond 170ish yards and it is only with the new bushnells, had a few people with other brands not have this issue. I am not sure if the Bushnells (which 99% of golfers I know would take their reading as gospel) or the Precision pro is "true" but its always a fun game to have my buddies shoot 200 but I shoot 204 and then everyone acts like it makes a difference in what club they choose.

Or yesterday, he shot 228 to the flag and I said  "nope I think it is 231" haha

Thanks for the battery! Found out that the eye piece adjusts. My son turned it a bit when I wasn't looking and I thought something was wrong with it. Took a minute or two to figure it out, but I can see again.

Had my Bushnell Tour V4 stolen and didn't want to shell that much money out again so I ordered an NX7 Pro. Used it today for the first time today and compared the readings to my father's Tour V3 all along the round; was always within a yard of each other at <150, and 1-3 yards at long distances. It was home course so I only checked slope readings once to compare with my expectations and it matched. Great budget rangefinder that so far is performing as well as the bushnell for half the price. Looking forward to using it more and hopefully this one won't get snatched..

Has anyone else had problems with the slope function on the Pro version? I am getting the exact same reading using both 'M1' and 'M2' modes with severe change of elevation.

EDIT: Problem resolved. I'm blind.

Hi Goodies12,

Precision Pro Golf here! Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your slope adjusted readings. However, we're happy to help and make sure that this issue is resolved.

First off, wanted to make one thing clear. When the M2 (Slope) mode is on, there will actually be two numbers. One is your "non-slope number" and one is the "slope-adjusted" number. Are you seeing both numbers?

If you're aware of this, we'll make sure to keep tracking down the issue for this problem.

Thanks!

I've had mine for a while now. Works great. As good as any other I've owned which have included Leipold. Bushnell, Nikon and Caddytek. Like any rangefinder, remember to clean the lense of the laser periodically.

Interested in getting one of these to replace a cheap one I bought from Amazon a while back, that allegedly had pin lock, but I'm not sure it does.

In any case, if you're playing a course that doesn't have prisms on the flagstick, how does the rangefinder know you've locked onto the flag instead of something else?

I also wondered, is there anything on the outside of the device to make people you're playing with aware that you are not using the slope function? Obviously the Bushnells have a switch which makes it obvious.

In general, I believe laser rangefinders report the distance of the closest object within a fairly narrow field of view around the cross hairs.  There is no externally visible indication of the "slope/no slope" functionality on the NX7s.

Thanks for the questions, xreyuk! As DaveGoodrich mentioned, our laser is very user friendly. The beam was designed to make it simple to pick up the flag and the pulse vibration alerts you when that occurs. And he's also correct regarding the slope functionality. There is no current external way to show if it's in slope or non-slope mode. However, this is a feature we're looking at in a future product.

Do you think having that external visibility that the slope function is off would be important for golfers?

Just tried to order a nexus, but the coupon code listed in the Precision Pro Golf signature wasn't accepted. It said my cart didn't meet the requirements for the discount code.?
