This is another budget-friendly golf rangefinder that I can recommend to golfers who aren’t willing to spend that much on a rangefinder. Again, you shouldn’t expect this to have very advanced features because it is more of an entry-level rangefinder.

But if you are to read reviews on Amazon.com, there are more satisfied owners than disappointed ones. These people realize that for such a low price, the rangefinder gives them pretty much what they need—accurate distance readings, easy operation, and compact size, among others.
This rangefinder is not only ideal for use in golf but other activities as well such as fishing, hunting, and other outdoor activities.
User friendly interface
This is as basic as any golf rangefinder can get. Its user-friendly design/interface means you won’t have to struggle in finding out how to operate it. There are just two buttons—a power button and a mode button.
To switch on the device, press the power button. Then a “+” appears. Press the power button again to see the measurement results on the screen. To switch the measurements from yard to meter, press the Mode button.
Compact and lightweight
This rangefinder is so small and lightweight that you can slip it into your pockets easily. Most Amazon.com reviews indicate that this is one of the main selling points of the rangefinder, aside from its affordable price.
Owners say there are times that they even forget they’ve put the rangefinder in their pockets because of how lightweight the device is. The rangefinder weighs just 190 grams. It measures 40x105x73mm.
The rangefinder has an adjustable eyepiece that you can turn to if you want to see clearer images. Simply rotate the focus ring clockwise if you want to shorten the eyepiece. If you need to extend the eyepiece, rotate the focus ring counterclockwise.
The rangefinder can measure distances up to 650 yards. It’s not the best in its class but it is not that bad either. It gives decent range to most golfers as well as hunters, with up to 1 yard of accuracy. It also makes use of laser technology so that it can give accurate measurement readings most of the time.
Good battery life
This rangefinder is powered by one CR2 lithium battery. According to most online testimonials, this rangefinder doesn’t really consume that much battery life. They say that it should be good enough for several weeks and even months of use.

This is a rangefinder that won’t really turn a lot of heads but for the undemanding golfer, this should be a decent golfing accessory. With the use of this rangefinder, golfers will be able to determine their distance to the flag and adjust their shot accordingly.
