Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder Review
Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Review
In my many years of golfing I have always had trouble shopping for and choosing golf equipment. Rangefinders have given me even more trouble, and so I have bought a couple that I wish I never bought. However, when I recently bought the Nikon Coolshot 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder, I knew for once I had made a good purchase even before I used it on a game. When I used this device for the first time, I was amazed by what it could but what perplexed me is that it could determine a distance of up to 590 meters accurately. Add this to a plethora of other advanced features and you have one of the best if not the best rangefinder on the market.
- Power Source: This device is powered by a rechargeable CR2 lithium battery. It is also equipped with an Auto power shut-off function that is programmed to shut down after 8 seconds.
- Measurement Range: The measurement range is 7.5-590 meters. Just like most others rangefinders the shorter the distance the better the accuracy.
- Hyper Read Technology: Hyper read technology ensures that you get extremely quick measurement display. This is regardless of the distance.
- 8-Second Continuous Measurement: By pressing and holding the power button the rangefinder will continuously measure the range for 8 seconds. This feature is very beneficial as it helps you measure the distance to trees and hazards.
- Rainproof: Rain should never stop you from using this device as the water will not affect its performance.
- Long Eye Relief: It has an incredible 18mm eye relief that allows for comfortable and easy view.
- Target Priority Settings: This feature enables a golfer to lock in a group of visible objects and hence ensure an accurate measurement of the distance the flag.
Besides from one of the most high-quality rangefinders on the market the Nikon Coolshot 40 is also one of the most compact. However, despite its small appearance a golfer will benefit from very precise distance measuring that is only matched by a few other rangefinders.
The biggest advantage with the Nikon Coolshot is its compactness but besides from this it also has many useful features. For any golfer looking to take his or her game to the next level whether they are pros or newbie’s, this rangefinder will come in handy.
