Nikon COOLSHOT 40i

The Nikon COOLSHOT 40i was released concurrently with the Nikon COOLSHOT 40, and is the latest top-of-the-line golf laser rangefinder. The COOLSHOT 40i offers all of the same functionality as the 40, including 6x magnification and scanning for up to 8 seconds, along with excellent distance accuracy to 0.5 yard and range up to 650 yards with readings every 0.5 seconds. The device has first target priority mode, but unlike the Nikon COOLSHOT 20, you can toggle this off so you can measure distances to targets in the background.

The Nikon COOLSHOT 40i is the same size and weight as the Nikon COOLSHOT 40, at 4.4″ x 2.8″ x 1.4″ and 160g, and is waterproof as well.

In addition to all this, the COOLSHOT 40i provides slope adjusted distances. The COOLSHOT 40i offers a different color scheme than the 40, a darker color (maybe to imply that you are receiving, ahem, assistance?). But that’s ok, i you are looking for Nikon optics plus slope adjusted distances, you’ve come to the right place.
