The rangefinder is among the top performing devices from Bushnell. It comes with a range of up to 1000 yards. This means it may also keep accuracy within 1 yard. Bushnell`s longer range devices also tend to lose the accuracy towards 2 yards. However, the TOUR V4 handles the results with good precision. It does fall short on the magnification which is 5X against the competition`s 6X, but for most players, this will not represent a noticeable difference.
The rangefinders` LCD display represents a major advantage in data reading. Some of this data can be represented by the PinSeeker and JOLT technologies which find and lock the flag sending a short vibration to the player. The handy technology is paired with the slope measurement function. The technology is easily accessed with a single button operation which can activate or deactivate the reading. This makes for a useful tool in tournaments where slope compensation readings are not allowed.
Bushnell always does a good job designing the golf rangefinders. The Tour V4 comes with a typical Bushnell layout for a device packed with features. One of the drawbacks of the design will be the lack of waterproof sealing. Bushnell, did, however include the useful button which can switch the slope measurement function on and off. This simple button will mean the rangefinder is abiding tournament regulations. The rangefinder also doesn`t come with a one-button operation design. But at this level of high-performing devices, this is hardly possible.
The Bushnell Tour V4 Shift is among the best golf rangefinders on the market. It is just behind the top models from the manufacturer such as the PROX2 but covers a shorter range and comes without a waterproof design.
So who would be the perfect golfers for the V4 Shift? Since the range is still way beyond the market average, the device would suit a dedicated golfer looking to improve golfing skills. This means that the new player would not need the extra functionalities of the device as they would suit the dedicated player better. Bushnell`s PinSeeker and JOLT technologies are designed towards performance and with the 1-yard accuracy it can be said they deliver a complete package. The single drawback of the rangefinder is the lack of waterproof design. In the end, you need to decide if this is something you can play without and take full advantage of the high-performing rangefinder.
