Bushnell Prime

    Recently won a Bushnell Prime rangefinder. Tried using it a few times and struggled to target the flag, found it near impossible to hold it steady enough. Have others similar issues with range finders?

    Thinking the model I have is not suitable for golf and is a hunting rangefinder. Distance goes out to 1300 yards and so maybe difficult for use at 100-200 yard range.

    Or maybe I just need to get used to it?

    Did you have it in bullseye mode? Golf specific one will be easier to use, but this is basically the same with slightly different modes so should work ok unless in background mode, then it will be practically impossible to pick out a flag.

    Yes, had it in bullseye mode but still struggling to get a reading off it. Think I'm going to sell it. Happy enough to just use the GPS watch. The off few yards won't matter to me!

    Hi staying on rangefinders I'm looking to invest in one and have narrowed it down to the easygreen 1300 and the golfbuddy laser lite. They're both around 130 pounds on amazon. Both get good reviews and have slope and are splash proof which we need down in the south west. Can anyone help or even suggest an alternative. Thanks
