The Leupold GX-3i2 Review
If you think the days of one brand dominating a market are gone, then you’re wrong. Leupold is the undisputed leader in the field of golf rangefinders. The reason for this is not because the brand has no competition; it’s because the rangefinders made by Leupold are way better and a lot more accurate than others.
Leupold reigns supreme over others because it keeps improving its products. Golfers were perfectly happy with Leupold GX-3i2’s predecessor, but by launching the GX-3i2, the makers have shown that they can improve even the perfectly working model and surpass people’s expectations.
All the features and functions that golfers loved about the previous model have been retained in Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder. The makers have also updated the technology to make the device easier and faster to use. Let’s take a closer look at the Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder.
Introducing the Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder
You don’t need two hands to hold a Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder; actually, you only need two to three fingers to handle it. The device is small, lightweight, and fits snuggly inside a small pouch. In just a few minutes, you can learn how to operate the rangefinder and can become an expert in just two days.
The basic function – to find the range/distance – can be handled by a pressing a single button. Insert the Li-ion battery into the rangefinder, press a button, and get the distance displayed on the OLED screen.
The setting button or the Mode button is on the side of the rangefinder. The main button is on the top of the device. The mode button is used to control four functions: prism lock function, reticle change function, switching between meters and yards and switching on and off the fog mode. You won’t be using the mode feature often. After making the necessary changes that you want you may not need to tweak the setting for a long time.
The Best Features of the Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder
PinHunter 2 Technology allows golfers to focus on the target and lock its position in an instant. The device also provides three reticle options.
The Prism Lock Technology will trigger an audible alert tone once the device lines up with the target. After the tone, the distance will be displayed on the screen. As you scan the course with the device, if the device passes a flag stick, the prism lock technology will emit a tone and freeze the display.
To use the Scan Mode, just press the main button and move, the device will offer multiple readings.
The Leupold GX-3i2 Rangefinder is extremely accurate. Its resolution can reach up to one-tenth of a yard.
Most rangefinders become inaccurate in overcast or foggy conditions. What’s the use of having a rangefinder if isn’t accurate? Weather conditions play a huge role in golf hence you need a Leupold GX-3i2, which is accurate at all times.
