TECHNOLOGY ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 ver.indd 1 12/1/1 O ne of the hottest new products in golf shops this spring will make it much easier for golfers to hit the green and zero in on the flagstick. The Bushnell Golf Hybrid Laser Rangefinder and GPS was released in mid-April and features the company's trusted laser rangefinder yardages to every pin and also shows GPS-measured distances to the front and back of all greens – all integrated into one display to provide golfers with more vital informa- tion than ever before. "It's like having a pin sheet in the palm of your hand," said Derek Schuman, a Senior Brand Manager for Bushnell Golf. "You now have every number you need to select the right club and play all your shots with the utmost confidence. In addi- tion to knowing the exact distance to the flag, you now have that coupled with front and back GPS distances so you now know your distance to carry a false front, or your yardage to avoid going over the back edge of the green. Ultimately, you will better manage your game having these distances." Bushnell was the first company to mar- ket a combined laser and GPS product earlier this decade, but the Hybrid is the first product that combines all the infor- mation into one easy-to-read LCD display. While the GPS is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery, the laser operates off a disposable CR2 battery, so you can still get laser distances if you for- get to recharge the unit. Like other recent Bushnell products, the device comes with JOLT technology that makes the unit vi- brate when you lock in on the pin, and the Hybrid is still small enough to comfort- ably fit in the palm of your hand. "Reaction has been very positive," Schuman said. "Consumers are excited to have the pin distance coupled with the front and back distances because it takes that much more of the guesswork out of the equation for them." ......................................................................... > CLICK HERE to shop for the Bushnell Golf Hybrid Laser Rangefinder and GPS. < WATCH!
