I searched all over the internet for the best deal on the Bushnell Slope Edition. Even the Bushnell website was more expensive than overstock. This range finder works perfectly, and has really helped my golf game. The slope edition really is helpful on mountain courses.

Tested one out at the local golfshop for $450 + tax and found it here for significantly less. Arrived in tact and working great. Have used it for a half dozen rounds or so and amazing accuracy. During one of the first rounds we thought it was out of calibration until we realized the marshall had told us the wrong pin placement, and the pin over the hill really was 170 vice 150! New so not sure about durability, but looks rugged and solid so expect no problems. You see the pros using them (not the slope edition) but this is a great tool and probably better tool for beginners as it helps you develop and calibrate you eyes for the game. Great product.

The is the best rangefinder that I've ever purchased. I do have shakey hands so I have my buddy locate the pin. Worth every penny.

The Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 Rangefinder is easy to use and constructed for the elements. After using the Pinseeker for a few rounds I quickly learned how to focus and acquire the desired target in a matter of seconds. As I walk up to my ball I pull out the rangefinder, acquire the target, put it back in the case and hit the shot without adding more then 10 seconds to my preshot routine. This rangefinder is most definately a game improvement device and has helped me to select the right club, and in many cases made me aware that I needed to change clubs.
In my opinion it is better then the GPS devices whereas you must have a course loaded or manually enter the course info beforehand. If you ride in a golf car with GPS and are subject to cart path only, then the point where your ball lies will only be an estimate of the actual yardage. The Pinseeker can go to any course in the world and be used immediately on any part of the course.
If you are looking for a device that will help with club selection and game imporvement, then I would highly recommend the Pinseeker 1500.

I'm a bowhunter and this little unit has served me well over the past 10 years. It's a solid unit that has taken a beating and kept on ticking for me. Primary use has been while deer hunting in the northeast but did serve me well on one Elk hunt in CO. I like the one number display. It's easy enough to get confussed with which site pin to use on my bow. I don't need a lot of numbers on my rangefinder to give me another chance to mess up. Only has basic features but if that's all you need, this would be a great choice and value...

I use this finder for golfing and actually skiing. I've dropped it plenty of times in the snow and no problems.

Basically, it works great! We use our rangefinder to judge the distance from our boat to the shore, other boats, and anything else around us. Typical distances are 20 to 200 yards. We bought the cheapest rangefinder we could find because we didn't need accuracy, didn't need long distance, and weren't sure it would be useful to us. Turns out we use it all the time and recommend it to all our sailing friends. We would buy the same unit again, but there are three things about it I would change. First, the unit is about 1/2" too long for the case that came with it -- it fits, but the case doesn't close all the way. Very annoying! Second, sailors tend to measure in feet or meters and this unit measures in yards. It's easy enough to multiply by three, but at the end of a long day when you are trying to figure the dinstances between a rocky point, a mooring bouy, and two other boats, it would be nice to avoid the math... Third, I would add a backlight to the display for use at twighlight and at night -- the unit makes the measurements, you just can't see the crosshairs to aim and can't read the distance until you look at a light.
