Precision Pro has created a following for high performance rangefinders at attractive prices. The NX9 Slope and NX9 non-slope rangefinders look to build off the offerings of their outstanding NX7 rangefinder line with added benefits to everyday golfers. The NX9 rangefinders are sleek, reliable and come in with a price tag that is much less than premium brands while retaining all the desirable features. We put the NX9 to the test, this is what we found.

Key Features

The NX9 and NX9 Slope rangefinders use LCD displays with 6x magnification for clear target visualization.

Both the NX9 and NX9 Slope attach to carts and clubs with a convenient magnetic mount.

All Precision Pro rangefinders come with free batteries for life and offer one more way to save players money.

Design and Technology

The NX9 and NX9 Slope are certified to provide accuracy within 1 yard of the target through its LCD display. A pulse vibration lets players know when they have locked onto the target and provides confidence the distance is always to the right spot. 

For golfers that struggle to steady their aim, Precision Pro’s target acquisition technology can help stabilize the shot and give them faster, more reliable distances. A magnetic cart and club mount is positioned on the backside of the rangefinder and allows golfers to stick their rangefinder on their cart of golf bag so it is always within reach.


PROS

  • The NX9 rangefinders provide highly accurate distance to the pin.
  • Magnetic clips on both models help golfers secure their rangefinder in more places so it is always on-hand.
  • NX9 rangefinders have battery replacement for life so they continue to pay you back as you use them.

CONS

  • The NX9 is rangefinders addition of a magnetic clip may not be enough to persuade golfers to make the switch if they are already happy with their current rangefinder.
  • Higher priced rangefinders offer more advanced optical and elemental capabilities compared to the NX9 models.
  • Precision Pro rangefinder are not sold in most retail and Pro Shop locations.

Our Experience

We have previously used the NX7 rangefinders with great success so were excited to get our hands on the NX9 rangefinders from Precision Pro. The NX9 delivered on all the prerequisite qualities of a great rangefinder, it is highly accurate, fast, and easy to use. The target acquisition is a nice boost to the user-friendliness of the product and helps find the target more easily. Having the magnetic attachment is also a great addition, especially when riding in a cart. Overall, the NX9 is a general improvement over the NX7 and a great item for golfers looking for their first rangefinder or to replace a lost or broken model. If you currently have the NX7 or another premium model rangefinder, the NX9 will offer more convenience as an alternative.
