During the recent Haggin Oaks Golf Expo in Sacramento, CA, Frank LaRosa with Golf to Go on ESPN Radio 1320 talked to Dennis Younglove with Leupold Laser Rangefiners.
Leupold is a leader in hunting scopes and has been in business since 1907 and is a primary supplier for sniper scopes for the military and are known for their high-quality products.
Leupold golf laser rangefinders work by shooting out a series of laser pulses that are reflected off a target and will read the exact distance back to you. The most popular model is the GX-1 that retails for $299. The GX-1 and GX-3 models are both straight line of site units. The GX-4 also features the slope of the shot, the daily temperature and how far you are above sea level. The GX-4 can even suggest which club you should use!
