Overland Park, Kan., January 23, 2019 – Bushnell Outdoor Products, makers of the #1 laser rangefinder on the PGA Tour, today introduced its latest innovative laser rangefinder – Pro XE. Used by over 99 percent of PGA Tour players, Bushnell continues to evolve advanced technologies. The Pro XE introduces Slope with Elements, a technology that takes Bushnell’s Tour-trusted compensated distances to the next level . Temperature and altitude have now been added to Bushnell’s patented Slope technology to give golfers the most precise compensated distances ever.
“The Pro XE sets a new standard in laser rangefinders,” said John DeCastro, Bushnell Golf Global Product Director. “From improved optics and longer ranging, to convenience features like Visual Jolt and BITE, Pro XE offers features golfers at all skill levels can appreciate. Updating our proprietary slope algorithm and adding ‘elements’ brings unmatched precision to the industry, making it the clear choice for Tour and elite amateur players
The Pro XE will set the industry standard with the development of a new “Slope” Algorithm. The improved “Slope” takes into account the most updated ball flight measures giving a much sharper angle of descent over the previous algorithm. Bushnell provides the only compensated “Play As” distance that takes actual ball flight into account, whereas competitors use simple geometry, which is easy to calculate, but not nearly as accurate. Bushnell prides itself on providing trustworthy and accurate distances to all golfers.
JOLT has been taken to the next level with the all new PinSeeker with Visual JOLT Technology. A red ring now flashes as JOLT vibrates to give the golfer even greater feedback and confidence to know you have locked onto the flag. Also new to the Pro XE will be the introduction of “BITE” technology. The BITE magnetic mount allows the laser rangefinder to be secured to the cart bar without the need for an aftermarket accessory.
The Pro XE also sets the gold standard in ranging performance with the ability to range flags at 500+ yards. 7X magnification enables you to have a better view of what you are ranging, and the newly enhanced ultra-bright backlight display provides crisp, clear data output in the LCD.
