Gain Confidence

The Coolshot Golf Laser Rangefinder gives you the advantage of having Nikon’s industry-leading laser rangefinder technology right at your fingertips every time you step on the golf course. Whether you're using the Coolshot to learn your personal yardage for each club while you train, or to measure the distance of a difficult shot during play, the Coolshot is the tool you need to become a better golfer.

This high-tech laser rangefinder is easy to look through, thanks to a larger 18mm ocular lens and with the bright, crisp views afforded by Nikon’s multilayer-coated optics, you’ll have no trouble locating the flag. The ergonomic design of the Coolshot makes it easy to handle and the compact design makes it incredibly portable.

The Coolshot rangefinder is very simple to use. Just push the power button to get an instant measurement out to 600 yards. And because it’s made by the world leader in precision optics, you can trust that Nikon’s Coolshot rangefinder will bring its A-game each time you step on the course.

Large Ocular Lens

The large 18mm ocular provides a faster view — meaning less time taking measurements and more time making shots. You’ll also enjoy the comfort of the Coolshot’s long eye relief and a wide field of view.

Multilayer Coated Optics

Multilayer coating is applied to the lenses of the Coolshot rangefinder for a much brighter and clearer view. This increases light transmission and allows you to clearly see almost all the target objects on the course.

Compact and Lightweight

The Coolshot was designed to be extremely compact and lightweight. Whether it’s in your pocket or attached to your bag, you’ll hardly even notice the six and a half extra ounces of this portable laser rangefinder.

Pin Scanning Technology

Coolshot laser rangefinders feature Nikon's advanced technology that allows you to simply scan across the backdrop of the green until the flag or pin yardage displays the closer distance. With 8-seconds of continuous ranging with a single push of the button, there is no need to worry about the effects of hand-shake interfering with getting the distance to the pin.

First Target Priority Mode

The First Target Priority algorithm displays the range to the nearest target among the multiple results obtained. You can then exactly measure the distance to the flagstick, instead of a background object. This is especially useful for approach shots.

Fast and Effective

The Coolshot exhibits Nikon's industry-leading laser rangefinder technology. This ensures instant measurement readings that are extremely precise, from 11 yards all the way out to 600 yards.

Overall, this is a very simple and easy to use rangefinder.

Additionally there is a "backlight" for the LCD display, so that the range can be seen in dark conditions.

The protective carrying case helps protect the lenses from scratches when it's stored.

A great multi-use range finder! This is my 2nd laser range finder and I am extremely impressed with this unit. The unit is small and lightweight. Fits in your hand easily, with control buttons at logical places. Auto -turn off to save battery power.
The 21mm lens grabs plenty of light, and the 6x magnification helps when ranging objects that are over 75 yards. The unit will range objects out to a distance of 600 yards!

There is a diopter on the eye lens so that you can adjust the crosshairs, to suit your particular eye (handy if you wear glasses or contacts). There is a neck strap for carrying the rangefinder if you don't want to put it in your pockets, or chance loosing it. Also comes with a holster with belt strap. The unit uses one standard CR-2 lithium battery which is easily found in stores, but the unit comes with a fresh battery in the package.

The unit is waterproof, so it can be used in drizzle rain when golfing or hunting etc. There are only two control buttons, Power and Mode. The default measure unit is yards, but it can be changed to meters if you are more comfy with that measurement unit.

The outside casing of the unit is a rubberized covering, which prevents slipping from your hand and helps cushion the unit should you drop it. This is my first "coolshot" unit of any type but I have and use many Nikon products and they are always top notch.

Once the power button is pressed the unit will measure distance for 8 seconds and then turn off, but this can be extended to 16 seconds by pressing the power button again once the power is on. The mode button is to change from yards to meters. There is also battery power indicator to show how much battery life you have left (visible on the screen when looking thru rangefinder).

Additionally there is a "backlight" for the LCD display, so that the range can be seen in dark conditions.

I highly recommend this rangefinder!

Okay full disclosure folks - I'm a golf pro wannabe. I've got the King Cobra bag, the King Cobra 10.5° driver and clubs, some really nice polo's and shoes, heck I even play golf video games... but I'm absolutely terrible at golf. I love the everything about the sport but don't really play regularly enough to get beyond my frustrating limitations.

When it comes to golf laser rangefinders I always assumed they were for two types of golfers:
a). The semi-pro/pro who needs every bit of information to play a more competitive game.
b). Rich old guys who've got all the toys so why not a laser rangefinder?

That was until Christmas 2012 when my father-in-law (FIL) asked for and received a Calloway 8396 X-Hot Golf GPS/Rangefinder. I initially approached it as a gimmicky toy but was absolutely floored by how much better it made my FIL's game. Once we hit the links together for a gold outing and used the device I was sold. So needless to say that I jumped at the opportunity to try out the Nikon Coolshot Rangefinder.


The Coolshot rangefinder is surprisingly easy to use. Actually the device has only two buttons; 'mode' and 'power'. The rangefinder comes preloaded with an Energizer CR2 lithium battery and is completely ready to use out of the box.

The 'power' button serves to turn the unit on and also to lase whatever it is you're pointing at for measurement. You simply look through the monocular eyepiece, adjust the diopter, aim at something and press the 'power' button for about 5-8 seconds to get a distance reading.

The optics are 6x power and adjusting is done by moving the diopter clockwise/counterclockwise until you can get a clear view of your intended target.

I have used several laser rangefinders for both golf and hunting. They have been predominantly in the Bushnell lineup with and without the pinseeker technology.

The construction is a rubberized hard plastic. Though attractive in appearance, in practical terms, white is not an ideal color for an outdoor type of use. It has a matte, non-reflective surface so glare is not an issue. The body is sturdy and does withstand casual drops to a grassy surface from about 3-4 feet. There are only three types of major functions that can be changed: Backlit display, Yards/Meters toggle, and diopter adjustment. This is a 6X monocular magnification which is currently the industry standard amongst handheld laser rangefinders of this particular genre.

The effective and ideal range is from 11 yards to approximately 550 yards. Anything outside of those parameters will not give a reading. These readings are in a more ideal situation and will depend upon ambient temperature, outdoor light conditions, size and brightness of the object assessed. You can realistically assess distances at 50-75% in general, common conditions. The lightweight does allow the user to hold it steadier, and the instantaneous readings are more practical for those who don't have as steady of a handle on the device. This easily picks up a white flag on the green. I also ping the group in front of me to see what distance they are from me, too. Outside of the golfcourse/links, it works well in the woods when determining relative distances to certain trees, rocks or other solid objects as a reference point. It also works well on AR500 steel targets painted in a bright color (white, yellow, orange). Sensitivity is definitely less on a darker smaller object - especially at a distance.
