How We Test Golf Laser Rangefinders With Slope

At Critical Golf, we use both objective data and subjective opinion in our analysis. The areas we evaluate for laser rangefinders include:

Accuracy. Laser rangefinders generally claim accuracy of within +/- 1 yard (or meter) under optimal conditions. But will you find one device any more accurate than another? More…

Ease of Use. Our reviewers spend time with each laser rangefinder in real world conditions, providing subjective feedback on their experience. User interface, size and weight, the style of the cross-hair in the viewfinder…it’s all covered here. More…

Features. What type of modes and features are available on laser rangefinders? Is there enough to really differentiate one from another? And for those devices that offer slope-compensated distance, what type of information do they provide? More…

Ease of Obtaining Readings. We take the devices to the course for a speed test in obtaining distance readings, and the differences are greater than you might think. More…

Cost and Value. Ranging from $329.95 for a basic laser rangefinder to up to $499.99 for the highest priced model that provides slope compensated distances, we provide the retail prices so you don’t have to track them down. More…
