The difference between the high end ones like Bushnell and Nikon is the stability and ease with which they acquire the target, also they find the target easier over much longer distances. Stability is an issue for older golfers I guess.

Well I took advantage of the heavy black friday discount over at golfbox and ordered a sureshot with essentially a free rangefinder bag for my buggy.  Will look forward to trying it out.

And it arrived this morning, not 14 hours after I put the order in.

They’re crazy good.

I had a hat that some of the stitching came undone. Sent them a pic and they gave me a refund straight away.

I got the message that they shipped my order at 8:30pm last night - they obviously just put a huge priority on turning around orders really quickly.   And with a $50 discount into the bargain, giving me a rangefinder, a buggy bag and some miscellaneous tees and other junk for the price of a rangefinder alone, delivered less than 24 hours later, - well, you just can't go wrong with a deal like that.

I had a Sureshot Pinloc1000 for about 5 or 6 years that just gave up the ghost on the weekend

Picked up a Sureshot 5000i from Golfbox that just arrived today

 Mine arrived from Golfbox today. I tested it with reference to my golf GPS and it seems pretty accurate.

I am going to  have to ask a stupid question.

 

With to Pinloc 5000i , how do you turn the thing off? I must have left it switched on because the " included " battery is dead after two uses.

It should automatically shut off when not in use. Most likely the included battery was just rubbish
