As of February 24th, 2019, Bushnell have announced that they are here to stay with the introduction of the Bushnell Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift.
Both of these impressive laser rangefinders improve upon Bushnell’s useful JOLT tech giving visual and physical indicators when you are on target, along size significantly improved optics.
For starters, the Tour V5 and V5 Shift improve upon the Bushnell slope algorithm and has an easier to use fast focus system.
The helpful JOLT technology also gets an upgrade giving you an even better visual cue as it lights up when you are locked into the pin. Now, you get a red flashing ring around the viewfinder so you will make no mistake that you are on target.
Bushnell has not forgotten to include their infinitely helpful BITE technology, meaning the Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift will give you a strong magnetitic cart mount to make these laser rangefinders easily portable.
The Bushnell Tour V5 Shift has a “plays like” feature and slope algorithm that takes ball flight and elevation into account to give the most accurate readings. You can easily turn off the advanced slope options with the touch a button, in turn making it fully tournament legal.
The Tour V5, however does not have slope technology, but it does have a range up to 1,300 yards and can lock onto a pin up to 400 yards, as can the Tour V5 shift.
Both the Tour V5 and the Tour V5 Shift have much brighter viewfinder screens making it very easy to see results. The 6x magnification and sharp focus on each laser rangefinder make it quite easy and satisfying to look down the fairway or range down towards the pin.
The Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift are both highly water resistant and come with a two-year warranty in the event of something happening.
The Bushnell Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift are both exciting new entries in their lines of laser rangefinders. The improved optics they each offer as well as improved slope tech that the Tour V5 Shift provides make these rangefinders truly exciting editions to their line that I look forward to.
We have something to look forward to at the end of March, as that is when Bushnell is going to finally drop the new Tour V5 and Tour V5 Shift on us!
