Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder Review

Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder is one of my favorite rangefinders. It can give you a fast, yet perfect measurement. It is also very light-weight to carry. You may not believe it until you buy it. I used to think the same thing. There was a one time when I always hesitated to buy any golf gadgets, especially rangefinders. You may be surprised to know that I bought that Nikon COOLSHOT 40 with a very unsure mind. I was looking for a rangefinder that would be user friendly, and calculate distance quickly. I was also looking for one that was very light-weight. Then one of my friends told me about this rangefinder. In fact, he insisted that I buy this one. After buying one, I understood why my friend insisted I get one. It was exactly what I was looking for.

Features of Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder


As I said, the Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder has better accuracy than any other laser rangefinder within this budget. It has a ranging capability of 8-650 yards. This device is able to give an accurate result quickly.

Waterproof Construction

Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder has a rainproof body structure. You can play even in the rainy season with this rangefinder. Many rangefinders do not come with a waterproof construction. As a result, it gets difficult to use rangefinders during rainy games. But this rangefinder will not trouble you at all, even if it is raining all day!

Hyper Read Technology

Hyper Read Technology is one of the latest technologies that has been used in the Nikon COOLSHOT 40. It is a great technology that ensures that you will get your measurement very quickly in the display.

Here is another cool feature of Nikon COOLSHOT 40 golf laser rangefinder. If you press the OFF/ON switch, it will measure the range continuously for 8 seconds. It will also help you to measure the trees and hazards on the green. How cool is that?


Nikon COOLSHOT 40 golf laser rangefinder uses a rechargeable CR2 lithium battery. That means you do not need to worry about buying a battery every day. Many golf rangefinders do not have a rechargeable battery; you need to buy a new one if the batteries are dead. Here you will only have to recharge the battery before going out to the green. To be honest, I do not like a rangefinder which does not come with rechargeable batteries

First Target Priority technology is a new kind of technology. It will help you lock the very visible items on the golf course quickly.
