Will there be any new products from Bushnell in 2018?  ProX7 replacement perhaps?

Looking at the Pics from the PGA Show (not first hand information) it looks like the Tour V4 Shift and the Pro X2 will be sticking around, with the addition of a “Hybrid” which looks to combine Laser and GPS into one unit. Interested to hear and see a little bit more about their 2018 line as well.

Surely they have something new up their sleeves in 2018.

It looks like I might trade in my Pro X7.

From an article in Golfweek today, price is $399 and available in April.

The highlights:
comes with Jolt technology
accurate to 400 yards
5x magnification
no slope function
36,000 courses preloaded for GPS

GPS (F, M, B) constantly available on the side (you won't have to keep shooting the flag for friends from 180-yards out)

when shooting the flag, GPS displays the F and B yardages in a graphic of the green in the viewfinder with laser providing distance to flag using a different symbol. I can't tell if the graphic shows actual contours or just represents a generic green but either way you get a good sense of how much green you have to play with depth-wise

Hopefully users' reviews match my expectations.
Callaway Big Bertha 12.5*
Jones/Ortiz 4 wood 17*
Kasco hybrid 23*
Adams Idea Black CB2 irons 26, 29, 33, 37, 41, 45*
Callaway MD3 S grind 52, 56, C grind 60, PM grind 64*
Tom Slighter Needle 450g, 3* loft, 74* lie

Did you try looking at Bushnell's web site. That would probably have good info. I did see an add for a hybrid (laser and GPS combined unit) but they had one of these a couple years ago. Probably a minor update.

Would be cool if it came with the slope switch function. Not a big deal though. I just like the ones that can switch on and off.

Slope that can be deactivated would be a homerun on this device.  I'm a bit surprised this new hybrid machine lacks it however for the price point it gives Bushnell room to bring out another model that has slope.

Available starting in April.  I'm sure the laser is top quality like most every Bushnell product.  The article says it's accurate within 1 yard from 400 yards.

I never saw the need for a max distance of 1,000 yards, which the Pro X7 has... maybe it's just a function of the magnification.

They’ve also come out with a new GPS unit called the Phantom which is essentially a new version of the Neo Ghost that they’ve rebranded with a new name. The “major” upgrade is that they’ve put a magnet in the back of the unit so you can stick to your cart. The rest of th functionality seems the same as the old Neo Ghost. F/M/B distances, programmable hazard yardages, and the other essentially standard features for a GPS.

Here’s a link for it at Golf Galaxy: https://m.golfgalaxy...UPHNTMXXXXXXGPS

Pro X7 slope has been my favorite unit by far.  Looks like it may stay with me again this year as I am not a fan of the X2 (too small in my hand) and the hybrid version does not interest me at all.
