My Bushnell is just what I need and can be used with one hand. The V2 has the slope option and I have been checking this feature out and although prospects of a final opinion are good I am not ready to elaborate just yet so no 5 star rating. I also used this unit in my work (architect) and it has been very helpful. If you are going to buy it choose the one with the slope option.
Ok-a couple of negatives--- the battery is troublesome to load into the unit and other reports of keeping it in its hole have been reported-alright I put a piece of gorilla tape over it as a precaution, I'm not proud. Battery life was also a concern; well I only used it over the summer 13 weeks 3x a week and it seems OK. The battery is also a not so typical, so keeping a spare in your bag is a good idea. It is also a more expensive one over the common AA or AAA ones. The carrying case is a bit cumbersome but there are aftermarket colorfull ones in the golf stores or on line. I like a case that is bright so I don't forget it in the cart after the round.
I also had some interface with a Bushnell teckie at their headquarters and he gave me some honest info (how refreshing!!!!)
Overall I highly recommend this unit the Bushnell V2. The Amazon price was good and the delivery quick-
I removed the battery and once I got back to playing golf I began using my V2 Slope ! Helped me dial my clubs in and the elevation compensation was great. I got nearly a whole seasons use out of the rangefinder. I removed the battery but reinstalled it once 2014 began. I was in the middle of a round and no reading ! dead battery, no spare. So when I got home I installed a fresh battery. I am getting yardage but an E36 shows where the slope reading is supposed to be.... long story short, I send in for repair and am told the rangefinder is garbage and cant be fixed. They would like to sale me a replacement ! lol no thank you. for 14 dollars I downloaded an app that displays the course tracks stats distances gives wind speed and direction and a lot more. Bushnell, I see a very short future for rangefinders in the golf market very soon. and customer service sucked as hard as their rangefinder.
Quality of the device: pretty satisfied. Yes it is pricy but, comparing to prices and quality of similar products, the high price has reason.
Finish: very upscale-feeling material but somewhat easily scratchable. And it looks ugly when scratched. I bought a silicon skin and resolved this issue.
Battery: I have not replaced one - seems to have long life. Some people said it is not easy to replace one but I think it is trade off for not letting it open during the game.
Performance - range finding: very good! Accurate! Easy to use! Since it uses laser, when the weather is cloudy or the pin flag is not shiny, sometimes it give some stupud number for the distance. It will be the only downside for the range reading (and there is my minus one star from beging full 5). I would say it is 95% accurate overall if you keep the lenses clean.
Performance - slope edition: I wondered if I should pay extra for this function and now I think I made the right choice. When you are hitting up or down the hill, you will need some calculation (or guestimation) or you will miss it for sure. The more angle of the hill, the more you will miss the target. This device calculated it for you and gives you both direct distance and the calculated distance. It is really useful unless you got coached by PGA pro and know how to change your club by looking at the hills.
I would return it and request a new unit, but the manual specifies that I must send them ten dollars to cover the cost of returning it to me. I thought that I would try a battery replacement one time before sending the unit back for replacement.
I ordered the unit on November 26, 2012, the unit shipped November 27, it was delivered on December 1 and first used December 2. A new battery solved the problem. My high impedance VOM shows the voltage of the old battery is 0.97 volts and the new battery measures 2.95 volts.
I have the V2 Slope Edition Rangefinder.
EDIT: February 15. I had to replace the battery, again! The TourV2 worked OK Feb-13, NOT OK Feb-14. Luckily, I bought two batteries last time so I had a spare. VOM shows old battery at 0.73 volts and the new one at 3.22 volts. I am lowering the rating to two stars.
