Bushnell is the premium in high-performance sport optics for 65 years. Like with all of their products the laser range finders for golfers are the reliable, high quality and easy to use. Laser Range finders speed your golf game up while adding convenience. Finding markers and guessing your drive is a hassle and adds strokes if you over or under shoot your club.
Bushnell’s Tour V3 is the tour legal laser range finder the company released in 2013 and the Tour X is the model release from 2015. Both are easy to use and of similar design and features such as JOLT technology which informs the user when the laser has locked on using a vibration they can feel. But there are a few key differences, like the extra red face plate that comes with the newer model that enables new features. The Tour X is only legal with the black face plate attachment.
The new detachable red faceplate for the Tour X enables Slope technology. This helps determine up and down hill slopes that effect traveling distance that may make a big difference to your game, sometimes making two or three clubs. Another new feature is optional red or black displays depending on user preference and improved accuracy, Tour X is accurate to half of a yard while Tour V3 is accurate +/- 1 yard.

Bushnell Tour X Vs V3
They review similarly and both have very high remarks from consumers. For the serious golfer, the upgrade to the new Bushnell Tour X is wise investment to improve your professional game. With improved accuracy and new technologies it stands to improve your scores on every course you play while still maintaining its tour legal status and the easy to use features everyone loves. For the weekend player, it might not be worth the upgrade if you already own a Tour V3.
