I recently took my new Tour V3 for a spin at a local driving range and it lived up to the promise. While I've never previously used a rangefinder when I go hit balls, I'd even say it helped me practice because every flag was over 20 yards further away than advertised. What a relief that was, because before I shot the 100-yard flag with the Tour V3, I was scratching my head as to why my 58-degree wedge was coming up almost 20-yards short. Turns out the flag was 126-yards away and I didn't have to kill myself for losing 20-yards of distance in the off season.

Tour V3 Specs:

- PinSeeker Technology with JOLT Technology to zero-in on the flag
- Accuracy within 1-yard

For $399, Bushnell also has Tour V3 Slope model (which is not legal for tournament play) that has slope technology which gives you compensated distances for hole's incline/decline.
