The Bushnell Pro XE is the latest laser rangefinder from Bushnell and was used by the players and caddies at the 2019 Solheim Cup during their practice rounds. The Pro XE introduces Slope with Elements, a technology that takes Bushnell’s Tour-trusted compensated distances to the next level.  Temperature and altitude have now been added to Bushnell’s patented Slope technology to give golfers the most precise compensated distances ever.

Extremely accurate yardages that really help your approach play. The 'elements' factor is very useful when you're playing early morning rounds as the cold weather can have an effect on your distances, although if you're playing in a competition this has to be disabled.

The yardages are found very quickly and the device vibrates when it has found the flag which is almost instantly.

The slope distances are also very useful if you're playing a course with a lot of hills, as you may need to go up or down a club depending on the elevation.

The Bushnell Pro XE looks neat and clean and the slightly heavier weight to it helps you keep the device more stable on a windy day. The display itself is also clear to read.

It's an expensive piece of equipment but it gives you much more accurate measurements than other devices and personally, it helped my approach play a lot. It's not as useful when you're playing in competitions as you have to have a lot of the features turned off, but it is still the best laser rangefinder GolfMagic has ever tested.
