ZOOM, a brand which is normally associated with golf gloves, has made its first foray into the laser rangefinder market with the launch of the new Zoom Focus X.
Using premium optics, the Focus X offers 6x magnification, a 600-metre range, and a continuous flagstick scanning mode. When the target is found, a ‘flagstick lock’ icon appears and the unit’s vibration mode kicks in to confirm that the target has been fixed.
Distances, displayed in metres or yards, are accurate to +/- 0.5m and are shown in a clear, easy-to-read format. The eyepiece is adjustable, making it perfect for people wearing glasses.
The Focus X has a slope-adjusted distance option that compensates for the elevation of the target. So whether aiming for a flag 20ft downhill or at the top of a 15-degree slope, the Focus X will deliver the actual distance to the target, as well as the distance golfers should be hitting for accurate shots. The Slope feature can be turned on or off with a button on top of the unit to make it eligible for tournament play.
The unit is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery which cuts off after eight seconds of non-use, while the viewfinder includes a battery indicator so users know when power is low.
Available in either white or charcoal, it comes with a carry case, and has an SRP £219.99.
