Golf Equipment test and review: Bushnell V5 Tour Shift Slim Rangefinder review


Technology:

Bushnell release their V5 Tour Slim Edition and the V5 Shift Slim Edition and have moved the battery compartment to the back of the rangefinder under the viewfinder which has helped them make the unit slimmer and more ergonomic so it fits perfectly in the palm of your hand.

The PinSeeker JOLT technology now comes with a red ring that flashes as JOLT vibrates, giving you more confidence knowing that the laser is locked on the flag. The V5 Slim Edition also comes with “BITE” technology, which is designed to securely attach the rangefinder to a golf cart and has a pull strength of 7lbs, giving you confidence that your rangefinder isn’t going to fly off the buggy as you drive down the fairway.

The unit also comes with the usual Bushnell feature of Slope-Switch technology on the Tour V5 Shift, accurate to within one yard, up to 1,300-yard range performance (400+ yards to a flag), 6x magnification, bright, clear optics, fast focus system, rain proof and a two-year warranty.

Conclusion:

One of the first things I noticed was how snuggly the V5 Tour Shift Slim fitted into my hand, which also made it easier just to shoot and focus on the numbers that were showing up on the screen. What I wasn’t prepared for but which was a nice surprise was the red ring that flashes as the JOLT locks on the pin. I am sure like me many of you have lasered the tree behind the pin etc, so it was great to know that the JOLT and flashing light meant I had locked on the pin.

An old technology but one that comes in very handy is the slope technology. Getting to know the subtle slopes on your home course certainly gives you an advantage when playing competitions and you have to turn the slope technology off. Some holes on my home course look flat from the fairway, but you soon realise there is a few yards’ incline that can make all the difference in club selection.

I would recommend every golfer choose a rangefinder over a GPS as I do feel they are more accurate and I am certainly lost without one now. Knowing the distances of each of my clubs and then having the feedback from the V5 Tour Shift Slim has made my club selection so much easier
