Slope Edition Technology

The patented Slope technology works by calculating and adjusting the yardage based on the degree of the slope. This means that you will get compensated pin distances whether it’s downhill or uphill, thus letting you make the proper club selection for better shots.

The 100 percent water proof construction of the Bushnell Pro 1M keeps it fully functional not just on clear and sunny skies, but on rainy days too. The unit is a horizontally-held design, which solves the issues with vertical laser rangefinders that involve unsteady, one-handed operation.

To help get more control over the rangefinder, it uses a tacky rubber grip. The outer shell is layered with tacky and comfy rubber material so fingers interact snugly with the rangefinder for a non-slip, ergonomic use. The Bushnell Pro 1M comes with a premium carrying case and is covered with a 2 year limited warranty.
