I swear I saw a pic in the golfwrx PGA reviews that showed a rangefinder that gave you the distance to the flag and the distance to the front and back of the green.  Does anyone know which rangefinder it was?  I can't remember and can't find the pic now.

It was probably one that has gps built in.

Unless you have a target to shoot you won’t get a yardage.

I thought bushnell made a hybrid like that.

I was looking for the Bushnell version that shows you the front and back while shooting the pin so you only have to look in one location.  It's new for 2018 and comes out next month.  The Callaway and old Bushnell have a GPS screen on the outside of the device that shows you everything.  I like what the new one has to offer so I'll get that when it comes out.

Got mine in, so far so good.  The only thing it doesn't have is slope, but the course I usually play I know it already.

My Hybrid arrives Monday. I hope its he best of both worlds. Thinking about buying the Phantom for my wife as it seems quite simple to use and has all the info she cares about readily available on the screen or ith a couple button pushes. Plus using the Bushnell app will give her a look at the entire hole including hazards.

You guys really need to check out the Garmin Z80. Has slope and shows the entire hole in screen. $600 though!!!!!

This is a much cleaner looking solution IMO. Will have to see a few more reviews in the coming weeks.

$600 is a tough pricepoint though.
