Nikon COOLSHOT 20 Golf Laser Rangefinder (US Version)

The easy-to-use Nikon COOLSHOT 20 Golf Laser Rangefinder is a light, compact unit that delivers world-class performance. This handheld laser golf rangefinder gives fast and accurate readings on course distances up to 550 yards.

Product Description

Compact size – The Nikon COOLSHOT 20 comes at an unbelievably small size that is extremely comfortable to use and fits well in any golf bag or pocket. The weight of this rangefinder is a mere 4.4 oz to make it the most compact option offered by Nikon. The compact nature of this golfing aid means there is no reason not to use on any medium/long distance shot.

Measurement – The COOLSHOT 20 can easily display the accurate reading for objects in the distance up to 550 yards. In addition to giving the true reading to the flag, this rangefinder is just as useful for gathering the distance info for mounds, trees, doglegs, streams, bunkers, golf carts, or other course objects.

Using the rangefinder helps to find the best shot option and move to the next shot in the right way.

Eight second scanning – This rangefinder has the ability to perform an eight second continuous scan that is intended to pick up multiple thin or very small objects, such as trees, mounds, pins, hazards, etc.

First target priority – By activating the first target priority mode, the Nikon COOLSHOT 20 Golf Laser Rangefinder will only lock onto the closest object targeted even when surrounded by a large group of other things. This revolutionary technology is particularly useful when attempting to target the flag when mixed in among a group of trees.

Rugged construction – The COOLSHOT 20 is built for the outdoor environment and easily able to stand up to the difficult and changing weather conditions. This rangefinder is rainproof to make it usable even when the weather turns bad.
