Nikon takes a Coolshot

Nikon has launched the Coolshot 40 and Coolshot 40i laser rangefinders able to measure up to 650 yards. The Coolshot 40 is designed exclusively for measuring actual distance and can be used for competition if local rules permit the use of a laser rangefinder. The Coolshot 40i incorporates Nikon’s angle compensation technology, which displays the slope-adjusted distance and is ideal for use on golf courses with uphill and downhill slopes.

Both the Coolshot 40 and 40i offer a multilayer-coated six-times high-quality finder for bright, clear images. First Target Priority Mode measures the distance to a flagstick on a green when there are trees in the background. Nikon’s Hyper Read technology ensures the measured distance displays instantly regardless of distance from target. Nikon says Coolshot 40 and 40i are compact, lightweight, rainproof and easy to operate. RRP: £269.99 and £299.99 respectively.

Claudia Paul, head of UK Sports Optics division said, “We’re delighted to be able to offer golfers two new laser rangefinders and we are confident that customers are going to enjoy our new Hyper Read technology, which makes it even quicker to the get the right number every time.” More at:
