I am still looking dilligently for those range finder batteries so obviousy my range finder has no battery in it

​Is it worth going through your pre shot routine that incorporates looking through the range finder even though it doesn't work then pulling out the appropriate club

I like to look through it so I don't lose the ability to hold it steady on the target

​I've found my yardage looking through the non working range finder somewhat accurate especially if I am standing on a sprinkler head marker

Don't go to Bunnings, don't buy a battery, continue to use it battery-less, just like any other Hosswit.

My rangefinder experience improved markedly once I started looking through the correct end.
Absolute eureka moment.
I was wondering what all the hype was about up until that point.

The eyepiece on mine feel out after i dropped it not to long ago.

I super glued it back, in what i thought was the right place.

Now i can barely see through it, as it's super blurry.

Still, i look like i know what I'm doing when i use it
