Features of Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder



As I told the Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser Rangefinder has a better accuracy than any other laser rangefinder within this budget. It has a ranging capability of 8-650 yards. This device is quite fast to show a perfect result. 

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 of rangefinders don't come with a waterproof construction. As a result, it gets difficult to use rangefinder during a rainy day. But this rangefinder will not trouble you at all if it is raining over the day!

Hyper Read Technology

Hyper Read Technology is one of the latest technology that has been used in the Nikon COOLSHOT 40. It is a great technology that ensures you that you will get the measurement very quick in the display. Nikon COOLSHOT 40 rangefinder is a digital most rangefinder and this is its proof.

8-Second Continuous Measurement

Here is another cool feature of Nikon COOLSHOT 40 golf laser rangefinder. Just press the OFF/ON switch and it will measure the range continuously for 8 seconds. It will also help you to measure the trees and hazards on the green. Isn't is cool?


Nikon COOLSHOT 40 golf laser rangefinder uses a rechargeable CR2 lithium battery. That means you don't need to worry about buying the battery every day. Many golf rangefinders don't have any rechargeable battery. You need to buy a new one if the batteries dead. But here you will only have to recharge the battery before going out for the green. To be honest, I don't like the rangefinder which doesn't have rechargeable batteries.

First Target Priority technology

First Target Priority technology is something like awesome kind of technology. It will help you lock the very fast visible items on the golf courses.
