Key technology: Bushnell Tour V3 JOLT review
Bushnell family of rangefinders incorporates new JOLT technology, which means the unit vibrates when the nearest object (usually the flag) is located. The Tour V3 model magnifies by five and can pick yardages up to 1,000 yards away and can pick up a flag from 300 yards and in. A newly designed unit, it should improve the fit and feel in the hand, and is also waterproof.
GM verdict: The Tour v2 was an outstanding product that remains an essential piece of kit for many players. Wisely, the new v3 uses similar styling and ergonomics, so that it still feels great in the hand. New JOLT technology is fantastic for reinforcing when you have found the closest target to you (normally the pin), and helps to speed up the process. This is a fine addition to the Bushnell line.But... although the holding pouch offers good protection, it isn't quite as user-friendly as the one on the Tour v2 model.PGA pro verdict:An excellent rangefinder that?s easy to operate and fits beautifully into the hand. I really liked the JOLT facility, which gives the user a small vibration through the unit when it locks on to the flag. It gives very fast readings and was a joy to use. The unit has a very striking design, and I?d recommend it to any golfer. Importantly, it's also waterproof. A top product.Test team rating:Performance: 5/5Visual appeal: 5/5Innovation: 5/5Value: 5/5Overall: 4.5/5
