Bushnell Pro X2

The time has come…Bushnell has finally bid adieu to their horizontally-held form factor, found in earlier models such as the Business Pro 1M and Bushnell 1600, and adopts the vertically-held design throughout its lineup. The Bushnell Pro X2 now takes center stage for the company, providing 6x magnification (we expect never again to see higher than this level, unfortunately), and the ability to show slope-compensated distances based upon the hole’s incline/decline with the flip of a switch – and be USGA-conforming (USGA Rule 14-3/0.5) when turned off. Range is actually up on this device from the prior generation, to 5-1,300 yards, and 450+ to a flag, with increments down to 0.5 yard accuracy.

The body of the Bushnell includes textured rubber for gripping, and an easily accessible focusing ring. The Pro X2 has “Dual Display Technology” (DD2), which allows the player to toggle between either red text and images in the display or black, though we find ourselves simply leaving as red. JOLT, which we still find unnecessary as the device already includes PinSeeker technology, which displays a flag within a circle, is still included for those who like the additional confirmation.

The case has the same size of others in their lineup, at an average 1.5 x 4 x 3″, and 8oz, ostensibly due to the waterproof metal housing and additional weight to support slope functionality. The Pro X2 takes a single 3-volt CR02 battery, and includes a 2-year warranty. A carrying case is included.

There you have it…all the features you could ever need.
