Need To Know
Many people prefer using laser rangefinders over the use of GPS devices due to the high level of accuracy they provide and now GolfBuddy has produced one that can talk...
Laser rangefinders are much more accurate due to the fact that you are measuring distance instead of using a GPS device that collects yardages based on geographical location.
The new L10V from GolfBuddy is the world's first talking laser rangefinder, so GolfMagic took it down to Farleigh Golf Club to give it a try.
Personally, the responsive audio feature isn't what makes this product stand out. I can see why some people will like it, but the accuracy of the rangefinder and the use of slope mode is what makes this rangefinder a great product. Being able to take the slopes into account really gives you a better understanding of how slopes affect yardages. I like how the L10V turns off after ten seconds without use as this makes the battery life phenomenal and it powers up again in a matter of seconds. The three different modes available makes the L10V one of the best laser rangefinders on the market.
