Really impressive Rangefinder and more
10 November 2017
I wanted a device that was capable of measuring distances on the golf course and for speed monitoring. I avoided the Suaoki as it was an unknown brand and at the lower end of the price scale, instead opting for a German instrument costing £150. Sadly, this more expensive item was very difficult to use, and on testing I found it had poor repeatability. On the other hand, the Suaoki has proved excellent. There are a number of modes, the golf one having a flagstick scan feature which reduces the need to hold perfectly still. This also assists in the speed mode, which can be set to MPH or KPH. Changing batteries is a little complicated, as the compartment is secured with 2 very small screws, but the battery life seems very good, and I have not replaced one yet after frequent use over about 1 month. The Suaoki is very compact, and works well in all but low light or misty conditions, this limitation probably being due to the size of the laser. In all, I found the device excellent, and a really good buy, which as well as being fully functional, is a pleasure to use.
