This golf Laser Rangefinder is definitely a cool gadget to have on your person whilst on the course. The Nikon Golf COOLSHOT 80I VR represents a Major step in golfing technology by helping alleviate the effects that cold, wind, unbalanced position, physical exertion or just plain-old tournament pressure can have on you.
Nikon optical VR technology reduces external vibrations caused by inadvertent hand movements while ranging objects. This means the target mark on the rangefinder remains stable, even when the body of the Rangefinder is being moved. Not only does this provide you with a steady image, it also stabilizes the activated laser, allowing it to maintain greater alignment for enhanced measurement performance.
If you simply press and hold the power button and Coolshot 80i VR will continuously measure the range for a total of eight seconds. This is valuable when you want measurements of multiple or very small or thin objects, allowing you to know the distances to hazards, pins, mounds, and trees
You can use the Coolshot 80i VR Nikon’s ID (Incline/Decline) Technology to compensate for uphill or downhill slope—assuring you know just how far uphill or downhill a shot will play. This technology displays slope-adjusted distance (horizontal distance +/- height), as well as to-the-target distance, enabling you to select the proper club for uphill or downhill shots. You can disable this functionality to become USGA compliant for tournament use. This device is waterproof and fogproof.
