We like the Callaway RAZR Laser Rangefinder because it is just as efficient as its Bushnell competitors yet it is cheaper and it has a more ergonomic design.
The Callaway RAZR Laser Rangefinder has a 600 yards accuracy within the tenth of a yard. The 6x optics ensure enough magnification in order to offer readings to almost anything you can see on the golf course. You can focus the diopter by simply twisting the eyepiece.
The Callaway RAZR Laser Rangefinder has undergone certain design transformations from the previous Callaway models. For starters, this new model is 10% smaller than its predecessors and it is also a lot sleeker, which makes it very comfortable. The product is covered in a rubbery anti-slip material and the overall design is very modern and it also comes with an upgraded case which now completely covers the unit, offering it a full protection. This case is also very convenient and comfortable to use. If you find it troublesome to constantly take the rangefinder in and out of the case, all you have to do is detach the case’s clip and attach it to the unit. With the case in your front pocket, simply clip the rangefinder on the pocket’s exterior.
In order to deliver high quality readings, this rangefinder is equipped with numerous innovations. It features multi coated optics with improved light transmittance. The readings are very legible to the naked eye but also when wearing sunglasses. The unit uses Nikon’s First Target Priority Mode in order to offer readings even for the smallest items such as the pin or even a bird on the sky. You can even pick up multiple targets in a single reading. The one thing that it lacks is a sophisticated pin seeker technology, so when there are trees or other obstacles in front on the pin, it can sometimes take a little longer in order to provide accurate readings. Nevertheless, this rangefinder is very capable of distinguishing obstacles from the actual pin. It can even distance different targets which success for up to 8 seconds.
Ease of Use
This Callaway rangefinder is very easy to use. You simply push the on button in order to turn it on and you push the same button in order to get a distance reading. The unit’s ergonomic shape allows you to easily aim it, even with a single hand. The unit also features a Mode button which allows you to switch between yards and meter measurements. The same Mode button allows the user to switch to low light orange. This is particularly useful for people who enjoy a nice game of golf after work and would hate to go home early due to the sun setting.
The Callaway RAZR Laser Rangefinder is designed to be not only efficient but also very durable as it is packed with numerous protective features. For example, in order to be fully waterproof, the unit is filled with nitrogen gas and sealed with O-rings. Plus, it is also shock resistant and fog proof. The rangefinder is powered by a 3 volt CR2 lithium battery which features a good life and powers the device to full efficiency even toward the battery’s life.
