The Golf Monthly test team brings you its Bushnell Tour Z6 JOLT review, revealing the pros and cons of the laser rangefinder

Product Overview

Overall rating:

Bushnell Tour Z6 Jolt

Pros:

  • This ticks pretty much every box in the laser category. The viewfinder is incredibly clear and picks up the flag with ease, even from long distances. JOLT technology is a brilliant addition, giving you reassurance that you have found the closest object to you (usually the flag). The information is displayed almost immediately after pressing the power button. The technology is packed into a compact unit that feels great in the hand. Not that many will need it, but from 125 yards and in distance is displayed to 1/10th of a yard.

Cons:

  • The price is considerably higher than other lasers. Some will prefer the feel of the larger units on the market, such as the Tour v3 JOLT.

Key technology: Bushnell Tour Z6 JOLT review

Another laser device that utilises the Bushnell JOLT technology, which means the unit vibrates when you find the closest target. The Tour Z6 model also includes Vivid Display Technology, which makes it easier to pick up the flag in less-than-perfect conditions. It offers 6 x magnification and can pick up distances up to 1,300 yards away and hone in on a flag up to 450 yards away.

Verdict

While you can pick lasers up for half the price of this, it is an outstanding performer. It is compact while also managing to pick up the flag quickly and easily. JOLT technology is a fantastic addition, speeding up the process and offering reassurance that you have found the flag. The shape and feel of the unit is clearly well thought out and the compact design means it fits into small pockets in the golf bag with ease. The red numbers and target show up very clearly and the laser works well even in foggy and very bright conditions.
