Golfbuddy Launches New LR4 Laser Rangefinder

12.02pm 26th November 2014 - New Products

Golf Buddy-8GolfBuddy, the world’s most innovative golf distance measuring device (DMD) company, has this week launched a new laser rangefinder – the compact LR4.

A re-design of the company’s multiple award-winning LR3 laser device launched earlier this year, the new GolfBuddy LR4 delivers improved ergonomics and style, making it super-comfortable to use and great to look at.

The laser’s outer casing has been reshaped, to fit more snugly in the golfer’s palm. The top grip section has been flattened slightly and the finger locators redesigned to make it even easier to find and press the ‘power’ button.

The eyepiece is easier to grip and smoother to turn and the battery compartment can now be opened easily thanks to a redesigned flip-and-twist flap. And this is all finished off in an eye-catching new white, blue and grey casing – to replace the all black previous model – with smart metallic finishing to the lens casings, eyepiece and all buttons.

Weighing just 218grams, this new golf laser retails for just £219.95 and is the most compact, light and powerful rangefinder in the market, packed with features to help golfers get the ultimate in on-course yardage accuracy.

The GolfBuddy LR4 is equipped with three operational modes. ‘Scan’ provides a continuous 10-second display of all objects located; ‘Flag’ homes in on the pin and factors out background noise from trees etc, to give precise readings; and ‘Normal’ provides a single distance to any chosen target from flag to dogleg point or hazard edge.

And as with all GolfBuddy products, there are no expensive annual membership fees, no hidden costs and the LR4 is ready to go right out of the box. GolfBuddy LR4 has a SRP of £219.

GolfBuddy is the only DMD brand in the world to offer on-foot course mapping AND no annual subscriptions or memberships across its entire product range of handheld GPS, watch GPS, voice GPS and laser rangefinders.

GolfBuddy is based in La Palma, Ca, with product development and course data management centres in Korea, one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality electronic products.

GolfBuddy is a Corporate Partner with the PGAs of Europe as its ‘official handheld GPS rangefinder’.
