Bushnell Pro X2 VS Nikon Coolshot 80i VR
Posted 31 May 2018 - 08:54 PM
I'm not certain if it was a problem with Oakley prizm lenses also or just polarized lenses, but I never had an issue using sunglasses with Bushnell or Precision Pro rangefinders. It was fine without sunglasses - just something that you may want to test first if you have the chance.
I would think if it was a common problem with the Nikon rangefinders I would have heard about it somewhere when I was researching, but I'm the only one I know of that had that issue. Been using rangefinders for 17 years without a problem, but had that same issue testing 3 different Nikon 80is.

I wear my normal everyday progressive lens glasses when playing golf and the Nikon works fine, although I think I may not always quite see all the way out to the very edge of the field of view. It feels like I am seeing the whole view but probably in reality I'm only seeing 90% or so due to the eye relief.

To my mind, this is another area where it's hard to go wrong, there's just so many good products out there. Leopold, Bushnell and even some "off-brands" like TecTecTec have their advocates. It all depends on what you want in a rangefinder and what fits your budget. (All I know is: SOMEBODY has to pay Rickie Fowler and it ain't me!)
*** One side note: I have great friend -- also a fine golfer -- and when I asked him about a rangefinder he said he had no use for them. He carries an accurate but moderately-priced GPS unit that gives him front/middle/back in about three seconds. I don't think I could give him a rangefinder if I tried. Despite his valued opinion, I still went with the laser. See: to each his own.
