Precision Pro Golf launches new R1 Smart Rangefinder

Published

on

Precision Pro Golf has launched its new R1 Smart Rangefinder, which is available for pre-order today at www.precisionprogolf.com.

Billed as the company’s most-advanced model to date, the R1 Smart Rangefinder features MYSLOPE technology, which is the first-ever personalized slope calculation that creates an adjusted distance specific to a player and their environment.

The patented MYSLOPE algorithm is designed to combine a player’s unique ball data (launch angle, ball speed, spin rate) with environmental variables (temperature, altitude, humidity, etc.) for ultimate accuracy over each shot.

The R1 ($319.99) does not require players to look at or use their phones during a round of golf. Instead, data is seamlessly relayed via Bluetooth from the Precision Pro Golf app (available for iOS and Android) to the unit, where all figures and measurements are displayed through the viewfinder.

Beyond providing actual and MYSLOPE adjusted distances, with a push of a button, the R1 will display yardages to the front, middle and back of the green, with the functions able to quickly disengage for USGA-conforming play via a toggle on the side of the rangefinder.

Speaking on the new addition, Clay Hood, CEO of Precision Pro Golf, said

“Just over seven years ago we started Precision Pro with the goal of bringing budget-friendly rangefinders to the masses; now we are helping golfers in new, innovative ways. The R1 Smart Rangefinder doesn’t just provide distances, it changes the definition of accuracy. It brings a level of insight the everyday golfer has never before had access to.”

As with Precision Pro Golf’s other rangefinders, clarity is achieved through the enhanced LCD display, which provides 6x magnification to help golfers always find their target. Additional features of the R1 rangefinder include:

  • Wind Assist – Lets the golfer know how wind might potentially impact the distance of each shot.
  • Find My Precision Pro – Notifies the golfer when their rangefinder is missing and reminds them to secure it when the round is over.
  • GPS Distances – Slope-adjusted distances to the front, center, and back of the green
  • Target Acquisition Technology – Makes it simple to lock on a target, even with shaky hands.
  • Pulse Vibration – Delivers a short burst to ensure players are shooting the flag and not at another target.
  • Magnetic Cart Grip – Easily sticks to the cart, clubs or any other metal object.

The new R1 Rangefinder costs $319.99 and is available for pre-order now through www.precisonprogolf.com.

    Fancy gear for 95% of golfers who knows to hit 150 yards, but his swing delivered only 100 yards

      You sure that is not 99.9% of all muni course players? Almost as useless as the sensors in the newer Ping irons….

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best drivers for a beginner

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing drivers for new players to the game. WRXer ‘KWatch’ is looking for a used driver and mentions his preference for TaylorMade, Callaway and Ping – with the latter getting plenty of approval from our members.

Here’s a look at a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • rjdivis: “Most places, i.e. Golf Galaxy, PGATSS, etc…, allow you to hit preowned drivers in store. If there is one nearby, this could be a good way to test them out. Prior gen TM, say Sim or M6, could be a good place to start. Same goes for the prior gen Callaway and Ping. I would likely go with the more forgiving, possibly even Draw based, heads. Sim Max, G400 max or G400 SFT are a few examples.”
  • scooterhd2: “PING K15.”
  • Markrip: “Cobra F7, 8 and 9 are all very forgiving drivers. Tour Edge Exs/Exs 220 are also very forgiving if you’re willing to look at other brands.”
  • Tommyboi95: “Anything Ping!”
