Interesting.  That’s not something my opponent will be able to see.  I could easily flip that hidden behind my hand and flip it back.  Will be curious to see how that’s dealt with.

Golf is the game of honesty:)

I haven't had any problems or seen any problems with others when it comes to rangefinders in big amateur tournaments.

There really shouldn't be any issues, since the tech has been out for a while (the switch allowing tournament mode). Competitors should be aware, and organizing committees know of it :)

Didnít realize that, Iím a Leupold guy myself.  Thought they had the colored faceplate to visibly show which mode your in but looking at the website I see the switch has been around for a while.

To piggyback on the previous post, here is the translated text. The only update that hasn't been mentioned is the bite mount, which is a nice feature! Hopefully it works better than the monument golf mounts.

The Pro X2 has a solid feel to it but everything else has the flimsy plastic feel, thinking this one will be on the heavier solid side.

It's nothing special, the rep talks about the elements being the new factor in calculating distance and he sticks it to one of the legs of the tent. I have a screen recording, DM me your email if you wanna see it.

Would be shocked if it is not $599 or $649, they tend to price everything in $100 increments and the Pro X2 was $499 and went to $549 I believe.

https://uncrate.com/...er-rangefinder/
Even though the link doesn't work, it says buy from Bushnell / $550.
Another golf forum mentioned $549.99 being the price as well, so I'd be surprised if they raised the price before launch.

Packed with tech but that price...wow.

I'll be waiting to see the Precision Pro NX9 HD. I love my NX7 Pro, but with their 30% trade-in program, it may be worth an upgrade.

I agree, it’s pricey but nothing beats a Bushnell imho.

If it's so revolutionary, I'm really surprised they haven't shown a video comparing distances with the new range finder vs the old in places like Denver, or in the cold vs when it's warm, etc.

Here's a video that shows the "visual jolt".
