Nikon launches new Coolshot laser rangefinder

9.29am 2nd September 2020 - New Products

Nikon has unveiled the next generation of its CoolShot laser rangefinder series in the shape of the COOLSHOT 40i GII.

An upgrade of the brand’s COOLSHOT 40i, the 40i GII offers a greater maximum measurement range of up to 1,460m, to improve ease of measurement to the flagstick.

Designed for use in regular play and official competitions, the 40i GII has two measurement modes: Golf mode (slope-adjusted distance and actual distance) and Actual distance mode (actual distance only). Switching between them is simple, with just the touch of a button. When playing in a tournament, officials can clearly see the Actual Distance Indicator LED lamp blinking, to show that Incline/Decline measurement is not in use. 

For normal play, Golf mode’s slope-adjusted distance measurement helps to improve performance on courses where uphill and downhill features make it difficult to judge distance.

Nikon’s LOCKED ON technology ensures that the laser measures the flag and not the background, while distance measurements are given in less than 0.3 seconds.

Offering x6 magnification, the 40i Gii features a 18mm viewing aperture and a long eye relief design for easy of use for those wearing glasses.

On sale from September 18, the COOLSHOT 40i GII has an RRP of £349/€409.
