Bushnell Tour V4 Shift

Bushnell makes the slightest of changes with the Bushnell Tour V4 Shift, adding a hard switch to shift the player between seeing slope-compensated distance readings and line-of-sight. Previously with the Bushnell Tour V4 Slope, the player had to use the buttons on the device to move between menus on the display to switch modes. This is much, much simpler. Somewhat confusingly, the V4 Shift retains the same name on the body, “Slope Edition”.

Other than this change, the rest of the device remains the same as in the prior generation V4 Slope. The Tour V4 Shift offers PinSeeker with JOLT (making the device vibrate when locked on to a target), 5x magnification with accuracy to 1 yard, and range from 5 to 1,000 yards (400+ to a flag). As with the rest of Bushnell’s laser rangefinders starting with the introduction of the top-of-the-line Bushnell Pro X2, the V4 Shift is held vertically. Size and weight remain the same as the V4 Slope at 3.11 x 1.57 x 4 in and 6.6 oz, and a carry case is included.

The body has the same plastic shell with textured rubber grip at the top and bottom of the device, has easy-to-twist adjustable eyepiece , and threaded battery door (included is a 3-volt CR2). The laser continues to be water resistant (not waterproof, unlike the Bushnell Pro X2), and includes a 2-year warranty.
