The small rangefinder can work very well for a wider number of players. It can be centered on intermediate-level players but due to the Slope-Compensation feature it can be a good option for professional or advanced players as well. It comes with the Hyper Read technology which is basically a quick function which shows distances on the approach. It also comes with Nikon`s ID technology which ensure you`ll get accurate readings on angle-compensated fields. Inclined or declined surfaces will now be easily managed with the right club.
The compact rangefinder works well with the 8 second continuous measurement system which allows for complex readings. This feature works great when you try to find multiple or very small object. The reading can allow you to find distances to pins, trees or hazards within 8 seconds. The feature allows you to scan through the object to find your flag. One of the best features of the Coolshot 40i is the ability to measure yardages. When you train you can see yardages for each of your clubs. The laser will track your results and you can log every club to either improve your skills or set new records.
The laser rangefinder comes with a modern design which will appeal to many golfers. The lens is protected through a cap and the buttons are manageable with one hand which makes a good fit even for new players. Weighing just 5.6oz without the battery, the rangefinder is one of the lightest options on the market and would be a great option for traveling players.
The Nikon Coolshot 40i Golf Laser Rangefinder has one of the best features which come in a small package. That features is Slope-Compensation as it is highly regarded by intermediate and advanced players. Coupled with some Nikon-specific features such as the 8 seconds measuring system, 6X magnification and an impressive 650 yards measuring, the rangefinder is situated well above some other products in the same price range. If you don’t mind the lack of a rubberized exterior and the extra battery you should carry, the rangefinder can be a solid option for players of all levels, especially those looking for a solid performer in a light package.
