Recently acquired a nice Bushnell Pro X2 but it didn't come with a case. It's walking weather so I keep it in the push cart's net area for easy access. When I'm done I put it in a zip lock bag inside my bag. I kind of wished I had the cover as it is an expensive piece and I'd like it to last for at least 2-3 years. Or until Bushnell comes with a new improved version.

Where do you keep your rangefinder? Always inside the case? Outside the case during rounds then in once you're done?

I keep mine inside the case whenever I'm not playing. But when I'm walking with a pushcart, I keep it in the little plastic compartment. If I'm riding, cupholder.

I use a Nikon Coolshot.  i.e. it came with a small soft carrying case.  It stays in the carrying case most of the round...  However, that carrying case, along with the range finder, stay in the bag 90% of the round.  I take it out of the bag, use it, and replace it in the bag after use.  1.) My bag has a valuables pouch that is water proof and lined with felt. So really, the carrying case is not useful.  2.) The few times I almost lost, or forgot where it was, was when i forgot to replace it back in the small valuables pouch.  I have found it is good to get into the routine of placing it back where I got it so i always know where it is..

My advice to you though if the above doesn't apply to you, would be buy a small external valuables pouch, where it goes when you are done using it, and back into wherever it was in your bag.

My case is always clipped to my bag. When I ride I take it out of the case and put it in the cart. When I walk(carry), I take it out of the case when I need it.

I'd try emailing Bushnell to see if you could buy a case, cause it should come with one.  Otherwise eBay or Amazon a generic brand carrying case.  My Leupold came with one, but I also bought a 2018 C130 bag, which has a dedicated, protective range finder pocket.

I always keep my laser in my pocket while playing. One of the key reasons I purchased the Bushnell Tour V4 was itís small size. After the round I put mine back in the case and then back in the dedicated pocket on my Sun Mountain bag like previously mentioned.

Hangs in the mesh basket on my push cart, and usually stays there unless I take a cart (rarely, except for the occasional scramble or something). Over the winter when not in use I usually put it in it's case.

This. when I ride in a cart I have a small towel I place the range finder on and then put back in the case after round. You could probably find a case on eBay cheap.

Why? The X2 should be water proof. If water causes issues you are covered. I've had a 1600 that I have just kept in my bag (no sharp objects in pocket) for over 5 years now with no issues.

I also keep mine in the case clipped to my bag when not golfing,  If I'm in the cart it goes in one of the cubby holes.  Walking it stays in case.  As mentioned above, I'd check out Amazon for a knock off case.  I will admit I've had to go back twice in the last 5 rounds to pick my rangefinder up off the fairway.  I need to get better at picking it back up after a shot lol

The best thing for a laser that's been invented. While playing, I stick it to the A-pillar (think the post that holds the windshield). After the round, it's tucked away into it's own pocket in the golf bag.

Cart: I run the cart bag strap thru the range finder case pocket and it rights near the latch in it's case.

Walking: Sits in the plastic compartment on my push cart.

Evidently laying in a fairway or on a tee box. Lost mine Saturday and it hasn't been turned in yet. 👎

I use an inexpensive camera case for my Leupold.  It is way better than the original case.

For this reason I have my name and number on both the case and unit (label maker). Works great.
