Works like a charm!
on February 12, 2009
I was finally able to get out and field test my Bushnell Medalist Pinseeker while sneaking in 27 holes.
Long story short: It performed flawlessly.
Long story long...:
It instantly picked up all 18 weather beaten red winter flags from just about anywhere.
Example 1. I had 297 left into a par 5, it snagged the information instantaneously. I know my old 400 Bushnell was useless from that range.
Example 2. 189 yards left into a par 4, the red flag was limp and there was a hillside 28 yards behind the pin. Information was instantly "pinseeked".
Example 3. 179 yard par 3, lots of "clutter" and trees behind the stick. Shoot, zip, got the number.
Of course all of the par 3's and every approach flag was easily attainable. I also used the scan mode to shoot trap lips, dog legs, hazard boundaries and anything else I saw.
I don't know if it's been redesigned but, the battery door wasn't even a consideration. I had read some others had an issue with the door coming off. I may put a small strip of gorilla tape over it, just in case.
If you're on the fence about which Laser unit to buy, I absolutely recommend this one.
