ZOOM has released a brand new golf laser rangefinder in the Focus S and it is without doubt the brand's most impressive product yet. 

Following in the footsteps of its elder brother, the equally impressive Focus X, the main difference with the Focus S for 2022 is a much sleeker design. 

It's also pleasingly a little cheaper than before at £199 as opposed to £220, which instantly adds more appeal. 

Of the standout features with this premium golf laser, it has to be how its ergonomic design fits perfectly and comfortably in the palm of the hand. 

There is also no faffing around with the device in hand as it's quick and easy to operate at the touch of a button. 

Crystal-clear optics lead the way in this stylish new design, with a super wide 7° field of vision, 6 x magnification, ultra-bright LCD display and an adjustable eye piece to cater for golfers with different levels of vision.

The premium optics combine with a host of practical features to make a golfer's life on course easier with features such as vibration feedback, slope mode – with visible switch for tournament play – flag scan mode and continuous measurement for scanning the course, marking out the premium credentials of the Focus S.

To confrm, this product is approved for tournament play when the slope function is switched off.

It is available in black/silver and black colourways, as you can check out below.

ZOOM has also brought back one of its most popular features from the Focus X with a micro usb rechargeable battery that lasts over 50 rounds on one full charge.

At just 170g and with an ergonomic design that fits perfectly in the hand, the Focus S is a dream to use on the course.

Each unit comes with a protective carry case that includes a carabiner so that it can hang from a golf bag, and a bungee attachment for quick, easy access.

These neat features mean the new Focus S is a practical addition to a golfer's gear both when it's needed and when it isn't.

This impressive unit does everything a golfer needs and nothing less, in a stylish, practical package.

Verdict

Without question one of the best golf laser rangefinders on the market right now.

While some £20 less than its predecessor, it's not the cheapest laser out there, however, it does everything you could possibly wish for and it's highly accurate. 

It's light, comfortable in the hand and just so easy to operate out on the golf course.

We also found the yardages were consistently solid during the round with the ability to lock in on the flag a big bonus as it avoided picking out one of the trees beyond the green. 

Some players out there consider golf lasers contribute to slow play, but with the Focus S you are wasting precious little time in locking down your yardage so there is no danger of that happening. 

Well worth a look if you are in the market for a brand new laser rangefinder.
