Critical Golf: Unbiased Golf Equipment Reviews

ScoreBand Pulse

I wonder…can you see beads of sweat on the golf laser manufacturers foreheads? Time will tell with the release of the ScoreBand Pulse and it’s retail price of under $180. That is not a misprint. Whoa. You might not have heard of them yet, but they do have reasonable distribution across the country.

While you might not expect much at such an aggressive price point, the ScoreBand comes with 6x magnification, scanning mode, flag-lock mode, and claims accuracy to +/- 1 yard. So what’s the downside? Well, you give up maximum distances, with the device only ranging 250 yard range to a flag, and 400 yard range otherwise, which is less the others in our comparison. We haven’t taken the ScoreBand for a test yet, but in general we have found that rangefinders with lower total range capabilities do not perform at the same level as others. Time will tell.

The Pulse has the ability to toggle between yards and meters, auto shut off, and a low battery indicator on the display. At 4″ x 3″ x 1.5″ and 150g, the ScoreBand Pulse is compact and light, and the device comes with a CR2 3 volt battery, carrying case and lens cloth. Hey, at this price point, we better mention those things!
