The Precision Pro Golf NX9 golf rangefinder is the new model bringing new features to the previous and acclaimed Precision Pro golf NX7. Precision Pro golf rangefinder are competing in performance and price against Bushnell, and although Bushnell, as a brand, has a lot of recognition and good references, the new challenger is delivering very good products and excellent customer service.

If you are not ready to spend $400+ in a golf rangefinder and want to have top features and quality this device could be perfect for you.

Main Features

When you open the box of your new Precision Pro Golf NX9, the first impression is:

  • small, maybe too small
  • feels durable, so will take some hits and will continue working
  • the store cage is pretty good

So as a first impression, the quality of the item is quite good. You can start using it at home in no time since it is almost plug and play. It has only two buttons to interact with. One to select the mode and the other to measure the distance.

One issue reported by the users is that these two buttons are very close, so sometimes you accidentally can change the mode or the metrics when trying to calculate the yardage.

Adaptative Slope

There are two versions, with different prices (around $50 difference), one with slope adjustment and one without. The NX9 Slope version is tournament legal as you can easily turn the slope measurement on or off by a simple press of a button.

With the slope model, and activated, you can get the adjusted distance to the target. For example, if there is a 6% of elevation with the target an straight distance of 150 yards could be converted into an adjusted distance of 160 yards, meaning 1 club difference. This is especiall important when you need accuracy if you are trying to improve your approach and green in regulation stats.

Pulse Vibration and Target Acquisition

It has pulse vibration technology to help you to lock the pin on the desired target. It takes some more time to lock the target versus the Bushnell models, but it is accurate and will help you to get immediate feedback with the distance in the display.

One important comment by most of the users is the problems locking the target over the flags. Quite often, the device locks the distance over other objects like trees behind the green and the flag, giving you a bigger distance. As a result of this, you need to click and measure several times until the flag is locked.

Optics Precision Pro Golf NX9

The optics are very clear and it has a 6x magnification. At a larger distance, it could be difficult to hit the flag and hold it steady. So, if you have shaky hands, it may be hard for you.

Some reviewers mention that the optics may be a little fuzzy around the edges, while very clear in the center.

Magnet Grip

The magnet grip technology will help you to attach the device to any metallic surface like the head of your irons. The area of the magnet is not too big, as this device, so the magnet is not as strong as other models (Bushnell). In any case, it will need a good push to detach it from the metal surface

This device is water resistant in case you want to play in the rain.
