Bushnell Hybrid Rangefinder Launched

Bushnell Golf has launched its new Hybrid rangefinder that combines the latest laser and GPS technologies in one device.

The new Bushnell Hybrid utilises precise laser and GPS yardages together, to allow golfers to get complete distance measurements like never before.

Exact distances to the pin are provided through the Hybrid’s laser function, whilst a GPS display on the side of the product delivers front, middle and back yardages to help when golfers have blind shots or need quicker, more general information.

“The Hybrid provides golfers with more information than ever before. The two technologies ‘talk’ so that the golfer sees the front and back distances of the green in relation to the pin that is targeted with unmatched accuracy by the laser,” said John DeCastro, Bushnell Golf Product Lane Director.

“The introduction of the Hybrid demonstrates Bushnell Golf’s commitment to providing the best, most accurate information so those who golf with Bushnell can play their best.”

The new Hybrid rangefinder is fitted with Dual Power Technology.

That means that the laser is powered by a CR2 battery, whilst a USB rechargeable lithium ion battery powers the GPS capability.

Dual Power Technology allows the golfer to use the laser technology, even if the GPS is not charged, and vice versa.

As with Bushnell’s other laser products, the Hybrid boasts PinSeeker with Jolt Technology, providing short, vibrating bursts to isolate the target and lock onto the flag.
