Published

on

Precision Pro Golf is poised to launch a pair of rangefinders—the NX7 and NX7 Pro—at the PGA Merchandise Show next week.

The NX7, which will retail for $199.95, is the successor to the Nexus Rangefinder. The NX7 features Precision Pro’s one-second Target Lock function, a 30 percent faster laser and a compact design that’s 25 percent smaller than the Nexus.

The NX7 Pro, which retails for $249.95, includes all of the features of the NX7 model. The Pro adds Adaptive Slope Technology, which allows golfers to measure elevation. The NX7 Pro is tournament legal, as the slope mode can be turned off. Another Pro feature: Pulse Vibration Technology, which pulses when the rangefinder locks onto the target.

“The NX7 and NX7 Pro Rangefinders are our 4th generation products. We’ve put in a lot of work to improve the accuracy, durability and design,” says Clay Hood, PGA, Co-Founder of Precision Pro Golf. “The NX7 Rangefinders are our most advanced and accurate models that will compete head to head with the more expensive rangefinder brands that sell for $299-$399.”

Precision Pro Golf is offering a mail-in rebate promotion starting March 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017 that will offer a $30 rebate for the NX7 and a $50 rebate for the NX7 Pro (available in US market only). The company will be at the PGA Merchandise Show in booth #1606.

    Picked one of these up (the pro model) and couldn’t be happier. Its easy to use, has all the features of Bushnell and was inexpensive. Been pushing them hard to my customers ever since.

    Can’t wait, definitely going to pick the NX7 Pro up. Can’t see any difference (spec wise) to go for something like 2017 V4 or V4 Switch. Looking forward to trying it out and definitely going to point my friends in this direction.

    Sounds like a terrific range finder – can’t wait to check it out – but a “30% faster laser” ? Your light is 30% faster than regular light ? What would Einstein say ? 😀

      The NX7 Rangefinder has a dynamic scanning target lock that allows you to scan over the flag 2-3 times and lock in the exact distance (eliminating background images). We have improved the Target Lock speed to just under 1 second (30% faster than the NEXUS RANGEFINDER). FYI: Every rangefinder has the same 905nm laser (regulated as a class 1 laser by the FDA) and you each company can modify the functionality of the laser to work differently.

      Hope this information helps! 🙂

    This product looks and sounds like the perfect Rang Finder. I would buy this NOW! Trying to get one now because the price is super reasonable.

    Scoreband has a slope rangefinder for quite a bit less and the same functions.

      Scoreband doesnt offer a 2-year warranty or the best customer service in the industry. We designed the NX7 to compete with the V4 in terms of quality, accuracy and performance.

    Been interested in a rangefinder for a couple years now. May just have to pick one of the up. Hopefully it works with my not so steady hands.

      Mark, the NX7 Rangefinder has a different type of target lock function (nothing like it on the market). We have a 1-second dynamic scanning target lock function that allows you to scan over the flag for 1-second to lock in the actual distance, eliminating any background images such as trees.

      When we were launching our company back in 2013, the one issue we heard from 75% of golfers we surveyed was the “shaky hands” issue and this was one reason they purchased a rangefinder. The dynamic scanning target lock eliminates this issue completely in the NX7 rangefinder (and the NEXUS rangefinder – 2015 model).

      As avid golfers, we stand behind all of our products and offer best in industry customer service if there are any issues with our line of Rangefinders or GPS Products.

      Thanks

      I have shaky hands and have the NX7 Pro. This was my biggest concern. I used it for the first time Tuesday and it worked great. The way the NX7 Pro is set to scan a flag, it seems that it benefits shaky hands. I just point right at the flag and my natural shake sends the rangefinder back and forth across the flag and about 1-2 seconds later, I get the vibration notification and the yardage for distance and distance adjusted for slope. Very fast and very easy to use.

    The NX7 Rangefinders will also offer a 2-year manufacturer warranty, inline with the competitors warranty programs. We are also offering free battery replacements for the NX7 line (3-volt CR2 battery)

Pros are just like us: Putting practice at the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published

on

The great equalizer in the game of golf is putting, and just like every other golfer that plays the game, PGA Tour players are always working to improve their work with the flatstick.

Much like the short game, putting does not require brute strength and generally comes down to simple technique and repeatability. This week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, we spotted a lot of pros on the practice green working hard with all types of training aids trying to improve on just that.

Bryson’s GC Quad meases 400-yard drives and 3-foot putts.

Spieth is always grinding with his favorite Scotty Cameron.

You don’t get to be the 16th ranked player in the world like Matt Fitzpatrick without working hard on your putting.

Kevin Kisner spotted working on core stability

Shane Lowry using the popular “gate” drill

Ian Poulter has been recently searching for a putter—and that pile behind him indicates he’s still looking.

Poulter was even spotted checking in with others around the green

Jason Dufner using the “bellied wedge drill” to help level out his stroke and improve contact.

The Putting Arc is a classic training aid that we continue to see players utilize

The Pelz trainer continues to be one of the most popular tools on tour

Tiger’s 5 best shots at Bay Hill (and the clubs he used)

Published

on

Editor’s note: We filed this piece for PGATour.com’s Equipment Report

During his career, Woods has reigned supreme eight times as a professional at Arnold Palmer’s place, and before these wins, there was also the U.S. Junior Amateur title in 1991, where Tiger won for the first time at Bay Hill.

As the 45-year-old continues his recovery from his serious car accident suffered last week, here’s a look back at Woods’ five greatest shots at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the clubs he used for each one.

5. 2012 (final round): Approach to No. 8

At the 2012 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, Tiger was looking to end a two-and-a-half-year winless streak, on what was a windy Sunday with greens and pins that Woods would afterwards describe as the most difficult he had ever experienced at this event.

On the treacherous eighth hole, Woods held a two-stroke lead. Sitting in the middle of the fairway with the pin on the left side guarded by the pond in front of the green, Woods, who would often lean on his cut shot during his time working with Sean Foley, struck a high draw. The ball landed softly on the front portion of the green and rolled to within 5 feet of the cup.

The bold shot paid off and gave Woods a three-stroke advantage, and he would go on to secure his 72nd PGA TOUR win and begin his ascension back to World No. 1.

Club Used: Nike VR Pro Blade 8-iron with a True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shaft.
