Review: Bushnell Pro X2 Laser Rangefinder

The Best Laser Rangefinder Features with the Slide of a Switch.
The Slope vs Non-Slope debate has been going on now for years among avid laser rangefinder users. If you want to use your laser for competitions you couldn’t have slope or at least the slope option on, but if you wanted to have all the information available you needed access to those features. The USGA previously only allowed interchangeable face plates which engaged or disengaged the slope feature. While it was nice, it was awkward for actual use. Keeping track of the extra face plate and remembering to switch it out was often a chore. The new Bushnell Pro X2 can go from slope to non-slope with the slide of a switch. It offers everything you’d want in one compact laser rangefinder.
I’m sure there are some that still debate GPS vs. Laser, but if you’ve read my reviews before, you know I am 100% in the laser camp.  I hook a laser on my bag at the beginning of the season and never worry about it.  I don’t need to recharge it every couple rounds, it is always ready to go and I can get a distance to anything I can see.  There is never any guess work if my yardage to the pin is accurate or if I’m on the right course.  Bushnell has been leading the laser charge on tour and with consumers for years.  They continue to offer top quality laser rangefinders.  The new Pro X2 has multiple features that really make it the top model.
The Bushnell Pro X2 is their best model and has the most features of any rangefinder they make.  I was surprised the  left the 7x magnification to the 6x but it hasn’t caused any sight problems with the 1 less power.  The lenses are crystal clear and can spot a flag easily at any distance I’ll be playing.  I can get a visual of lock on the details of what I want to see while getting the distance to it.
The real unique feature of the new Bushnell Pro X2 is the slope switch.  It is the easiest way to go back and forth between the two features available.  Slide it up for slope, exposing the words “slope edition”; slide it down and now it is tournament conforming.  While I’m sure this isn’t as obvious to a tournament committee compared to big red face plate; golf is a game of integrity and if golfers want to cheat, slope is the least of our worries.  Personally I think the rule is silly since you still have to execute the shot and the other factors that play into any given shot don’t give that much advantage that a golfer with slope compared to one with out it will shoot significantly lower scores.

Another switch option is the dual display of the Bushnell Pro X2 rangefinder.  You can use the black or red display option depending on your lighting conditions or your preference.  While I love the red option, my colorblind father can’t see the numbers clearly so he needs to switch it to black when he borrow my Pro X2 laser.

The other now standard features like Pin Seeker and JOLT technology are still included and awesome.  Missing my target is very rare with the Bushnell Pro X2 laser rangefinder.  It locks on get the yardage instantly.  A couple times when there was numerous other targets that were close in proximity and I wasn’t sure which one I hit, I’d laser it a couple times just to be certain, but almost every time I had hit the pin on the first try.

The Bushnell Pro X2 laser rangefinder does it all.  It is my go to laser that is attached to my bag for the season.  The easy of use, the slope/non-slope option, the differing displays and always ready to go battery life makes this the best rangefinder you can buy.   You have all the great features at the slide of a switch or push of a button.  This is another great model from Bushnell.  You won’t be disappointed if you give the Pro X2 the laser spot on your bag.
