Nikon COOLSHOT 40

The Nikon COOLSHOT 40 is the mid-level golf laser rangefinder in the Nikon COOLSHOT lineup, improving on the previously introduced Nikon COOLSHOT 20. The COOLSHOT 40 offers a similar white and blue design, with 6x magnification and scanning for up to 8 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. Distance accuracy is increased from the Nikon COOLSHOT 20 down to 0.5 yard and range up to 650 yards, and its rainproof too…

The Nikon COOLSHOT 40 is slightly larger and heavier than the Nikon COOLSHOT 20, at 4.4″ x 2.8″ x 1.4″ and 160g, understandable given the more powerful rangefinding capabilities, which allow flagsticks to be targeted at 450 yards, up sharply from the 250 yard maximum for the Nikon COOLSHOT 20. And no waiting…distances are displayed in 0.5 seconds.
