Building on the growing success of its golf laser DMDs, which sit alongside its world-renowned and highly-accurate GPS measuring devices, GolfBuddy unveils the new compact LR5 laser rangefinder.
With an RRP of just £219.95 and using the multiple award-winning technology of its predecessor, the LR4, this new laser DMD offers the golfer incredible accuracy, style and performance at an amazing pricepoint.
The GolfBuddy LR5 is quite simply jam-packed with features that make it the best value laser in golf, including:
- Accuracy: +/- 1m
- Yards or metres display
- Up to 880 yards laser
- IPX3 water and dust resistant
- Three operational modes (Standard, Pin & Scan)
- Compact, lightweight & ergonomic body with grip pad
- Automatic shut-off after 10 seconds
- Default to “Last Used” settings
- Up to 5,000 scans battery life
- Multi-coated lenses with 6x magnification
- Eyepiece focus adjustment, suitable for glasses wearers
The GolfBuddy LR5 benefits from significantly improved ergonomics over the LR4, making it even easier to use. The ‘Mode’ and ‘Power’ buttons now sit alongside each other on the top of the unit, making it simpler for the user to select the operational mode and press the laser.
The battery compartment with its flip-and-twist flap has been relocated to the rear of the LR5, and a non-slip grip pad has been introduced on the side of the rangefinder to give added traction and stability in the hand in wind and rain.
And a permanent battery power indicator in the unit’s display lets users know when it’s time to replace the CR2 3V battery included.
All this is finished off in an eye-catching new grey and blue casing with smart metallic detailing and edging to the lens casings, eyepiece and all buttons.
The GolfBuddy LR5 is equipped with three operational modes. ‘Scan’ provides a continuous 10-second display of all objects located; ‘Pin’ homes in on the flag and factors out background noise from trees etc, to give precise readings; and ‘Standard’ provides a single distance to any chosen target from flag to dogleg point or hazard edge.
And as with all GolfBuddy products, there are no expensive annual membership fees, no hidden costs and the LR5 is ready to go right out of the box. GolfBuddy LR5 has a SRP of £219.95
