Shot Scope unveils new Pro LX+, Pro LX and H4 rangefinders

Published

on

Shot Scope has introduced its new lineup for 2022, which includes the Pro LX+, the game’s first laser rangefinder to feature GPS-powered distances and Artificial Intelligence for personalized performance tracking.

“Shot Scope is thrilled to unveil this game-changing device to the golf industry, as we introduce GPS distance and performance tracking technology to laser rangefinder users for the first time ever. Our V3 Smart Watch was a tremendous success when launched in 2020, and now we are bringing that same artificial intelligence to rangefinders and giving golfers a multi-product system that is offered at a price point for every budget.” – David Hunter, CEO, Shot Scope

Shot Scope Pro LX+

Highlighting the new Shot Scope rangefinder system is the Pro LX+, the only rangefinder to offer three products in one – a rangefinder, GPS-powered distances and performance tracking.

The Pro LX+ features advanced target lock vibration, red and black dual optics, X7 navigation, adaptive slope technology, 900-yard range, accurate to 1 yard, a clear precision lens and a comfort stability grip.

Additionally, the Pro LX+ offers 36,000 pre-loaded courses, front, back and middle GPS distances with front and carry distances to every hazard, and all distances are available in yards or meters.

The new addition is available in blue, gray and orange colors and features Shot Scope’s artificial intelligence for performance tracking via the H4 Game Tracker, which magnetically attaches to the rangefinder.

Backed by 16 RFID tracking tags that capture over 100 game statistics during a round of golf, the performance tracking capability works in the background and continuously scans the golfer’s swing settings.

This is designed to create an ever-increasing volume and accuracy of data collected from the golfer during play, leading to more insights and statistics that help the player understand their game better, improve on-course strategy and shoot lower scores.

The water-resistant Pro LX+, which is USGA conforming, also comes with a premium carry case, lanyard, carry clip, cleaning cloth and 1 x CR123 battery.

Price: $349.99 SRP with no subscription fees and free updates.

Shot Scope Pro LX

The Shot Scope Pro LX is aimed at players looking for a high-performance laser rangefinder without the performance tracking technology. The Pro LX boasts all of the features listed above, less the H4 Game Tracker, and is available in blue, gray and orange colors.

Price: $249.99, with no subscription fees.

Shot Scope H4 Game Tracker

The H4 Game Tracker offers both GPS distances and performance tracking and attaches via a metal belt and carry clip.

The H4 offers all of the high-performance GPS technology features of the Pro LX+ listed above, combined with the Shot Scope performance tracking capabilities, backed by the 16 RFID tracking tags that capture over 100 game statistics during a round of golf.

Price: $149.99 with no subscription fees and free updates.

Performance Tracking & Statistics (Available with Pro LX+ and H4 products)

Here’s a look at some of the key features included in the Performance Tracking technology:

  • Tour-Level Statistics: Dive into 100s of statistics and insights about your game such as average club distances, best short game club, number of birdies and bogeys per round and much more.

Titleist launches new Tour Soft and Tour Speed balls

Published

on

Titleist has today introduced its latest Tour Soft and Tour Speed golf balls.

Tour Soft

At 1.600”, the Tour Soft retains one of the largest core sizes in the Titleist golf ball portfolio and the same soft compression as the current generation. As such a large core requires an extremely thin cover, Titleist developed the thin 4CE grafted cover, which is designed to help generate reliable greenside spin for short game playability.

The Tour Soft golf ball features a new aerodynamic design – the 346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple design – that bids to deliver optimized ball flight for longer distances.

Speaking on the new addition, Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. said

“The Tour Soft golfer prioritizes feel and seeks the softest possible, but they are also looking for all around performance. The new Tour Soft has been reengineered for improved performance from tee through green.”

Specs, Price & Availability

  • Color Codes: White and Yellow (#1-4)
  • Price: $35 per dozen
  • Availability: May 20

Tour Speed

The Tour Speed ball features a reformulated 1.550″ core that is designed to deliver high speeds and a proprietary high flex casing layer, uniquely designed for this golf ball to maintain low long game spin.

The reformulated Tour Speed golf ball maintains its proprietary Titleist Performance Urethane (TPU) cover – specifically formulated by Titleist Golf Ball R&D chemists – and 346 quadrilateral dipyramid dimple design, a combination designed to offer a penetrating, consistent flight and optimized greenside spin for short game control.

Speaking on the Tour Speed ball, Frederick Waddell, Director of Product Management, said

“The key to the development process was successfully reformulating the core and high-flex casing layer to perform in conjunction with the proprietary Titleist Performance Urethane (TPU) cover to our stringent quality tolerances, so the golf ball performs consistently on every shot.”

Specs, Price & Availability

  • Color Codes: White and Yellow (#1-4)
  • Price: $40 per dozen
  • Availability: U.S. on May 20th in White (#1-4) and on June 21st in Yellow (#1-4); Global May 20th

Do I need a 5-iron? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the need for a 5-iron. WRXer ‘DarkAirPlane’ is new to the sport and kicks off the thread, saying:

“Beginner here. I would like to purchase a set of 2021 T300 irons. I’m thinking I should order 6-W1 in order to be somewhat close to “traditional” lofts. Do I really need the T300 5 iron (23 degree loft)? 23 degree loft is more like a 4 iron. I don’t think I can generate enough speed to hit 23 degrees longer than the t300 6 iron (26 degrees).”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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

  • PNW: “Nothing wrong with doing that at all, and it might help simplify things as you’re starting out. And you’re right that 23* is more like a modern-traditional 4 iron, so it won’t be easy to hit as a beginner even in a Game Improvement set. I would say save yourself the money and go without the 5 iron. As you get better and you figure out you need a club in that spot there will be options at that point to order a single club, either 5 iron or maybe hybrid.”
  • Vater: “It’s refreshing to hear you be honest and smart in talking about what clubs suit you. T300s, questioning needing a 5 iron, swing speed… I’m certain you’re going to enjoy the game and get pretty good through this kind of outlook – instead of forcing yourself into blades and 2 irons…I have a jacked 5 iron at 24 deg, and I put a Recoil shaft into it. With the stock shaft, it was pretty hit or miss, and I’d just go to my hybrid. Now that I’ve made it fit me, it’s useful for the gap between my new hybrid and my 6 iron.”
  • bellken: “No, you don’t need a 5 iron. You can always order a 5 iron later if you decide you want one. I ditched the 5 iron a while ago.”
