Our score:
PRICE: £330.00 YEAR: from 2022

The Shot Scope Pro LX+ Rangefinder is arguably the most advanced and exciting distance-measuring device on the market right now.

That we've hailed the device as the very best golf rangefinder that you can buy right now shows just how highly we regard it. 

At £330.00, you need to be prepared to make a significant investment. But having tested this golf rangefinder, this investment should lead to significant game improvement.

GolfMagic Equipment Editor Alex Lodge took the Shot Scope Pro LX+ on to the golf course to assess its performance and game improvement qualities.


Shot Scope Pro LX+ rangefinder - What's in the box?

It comes with the impressive H4 add-on and plug-n-play club tags, which allow you to gather data on your game. You can access vital statistics about your driving, iron play and putting.

The Shot Scope Pro LX+  is easy to use, features a large range of distances to greens and hazards and by using the Shot Scope app, you receive an insight into your game never seen before with a golf rangefinder.

Shot Scope Pro LX+ rangefinder - Performance

This golf rangefinder stands out in the market because of the impressive statistical service that it offers. The H4 add-on and the plug-n-play club tags work together to track data from your game.

Before each shot, you can connect the club tags by pushing them into the top of your club grip. You then tap this on to the screen of the H4 add-on which will then buzz.

Now, you're good to go and you can access the data on the Shot Scope app, much like you can when using the Shot Scope V3 watch. This shot-tracking feature is rarely found in other golf rangefinders.

Shot Scope Pro LX+ rangefinder - Design and Build

The H4 add-on is very practical. It can be stuck on to the rangefinder itself or on your golf bag or even on your belt. It is a versatile rangefinder which also has other qualities. The design of the item makes it easy to use with the thumb grip.

The H4 add-on has a clear display which shows distances to the front, middle and back of the green. Although this feature isn't vital to the golf rangefinder, it is useful when you are faced with different pin positions.

We were really pleased with the colour settings of the scope. You can customise the display to red or black and each colour stands out against different backgrounds and landscapes.

This colour display helps with the accuracy of the yardages, but when compared to a golf rangefinder such as the Bushnell Tour V5, it isn't as accurate and this can become slightly time-consuming when seeking the exact yardage.

Nonetheless, this golf rangefinder has 7x magnification and it also comes with 36,000 pre-loaded golf courses. This is extremely useful if you enjoy visiting different golf clubs as a non-member.

We found other features impressive such as the 900-yard range pick-up. This golf rangefinder also has target-lock detection which informed us when the yardage was locked in.

Should you buy the Shot Scope Pro LX+ Golf Rangefinder?

In terms of game improvement, the Shot Scope Pro LX+ Golf Rangefinder is superb. The H4 add-on, when paired with the club tags, offers you the chance to dive deep into your game.

It is a unique golf rangefinder that pairs a standard distance-measuring scope with a GPS device which also gives you yardages to the front, middle and back of the green.

The red and black optics are another good feature which we found to be a key selling point. It makes the scope clear and is clearly distinctive compared to back ground landscapes.

The design is solid and although it isn't as accurate as the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift golf rangefinder, there is so much packed into it that will benefit your game.
