Twice The Tech With New Callaway Rangefinder

11.22am 4th November 2016 - Corporate

callaway-hybrid1Callaway, one of the world’s leading golf equipment brands, has introduced its most advanced rangefinder yet to the UK market with the release of the new Hybrid Laser-GPS model that incorporates two separate distance-measuring technologies for greater accuracy.

Combining the pin-seeking precision of a laser rangefinder with the added convenience of GPS course mapping, the Hybrid Laser-GPS offers comprehensive distance information in a compact device, weighing just 220 grams.

Featuring Callaway’s Pin Acquisition Technology (PAT), the laser can lock on to pins up to 300 yards away with accuracy to within a single yard, while also offering x6 magnification for multiple-target measurements up to 1,000 yards away.

The GPS function is preloaded with more than 30,000 global golf courses without any download or subscription fees and offers accurate distance measurements to the front, centre and back of greens plus layup and carry yardages to hazards and doglegs.

Also new to the UK market is the Callaway 300 Pro Laser Rangefinder featuring ‘Slope’ technology, which measures the angle of incline or decline to the target then calculates the slope-adjusted distance; plus the 200 Laser Rangefinder, weighing just 110 grams that offers measurements up to 800 yards away and can lock onto pins from 275 yards out.

“The variety in these new rangefinders shows how committed Callaway is to providing a Distance Measurement Device for all different types of golfer and the courses they play,” said Brand Fusion UK Sales Manager, Tony Fletcher. “Releasing the premium Hybrid model also confirms the brand as a major player in the DMD market. We envisage golfers being extremely keen to purchase their DMDs from one of the world’s most reputable golf brands.”

The new Hybrid Laser-GPS rangefinder has an RRP of £329, with the 300 Pro model retailing at £299 and the 200 model retailing at £199. All are available to order in the UK immediately.
