In the modern game, you need one if you’re going to play your best and get the most out of your game. Thanks to so many advances in technology, there’s really no excuse to be guessing at yardages when you’re out of the course. Rangefinders take all the guesswork out of the distance equation.

But a problem that a lot of golfers have is finding a rangefinder that best suits their needs and budget. 

Generally, you get what you pay for when it comes to rangefinders. The cheapest ones will come with a few basic functions, but their reliability and accuracy might be suspect. At the other end of the spectrum, the most expensive rangefinders can run you hundreds of dollars and come with just about every feature you can imagine. 

If you’re like me, and a lot of our Golfer’s Authority readers, you’re probably looking for a rangefinder that’s both functional and reliable and isn’t going to break the bank.

That’s why I was so excited when I got my hands on the all-new Shot Scope Pro L2 rangefinder.

Not only is this rangefinder one of the most affordable on the market, it’s extremely accurate and very reliable. 

Let’s take a closer look.

Key Features

Target-lock technology and rapid-fire detection make finding the target easy.

Magnification of 6x makes targets clear and easy to see, especially for golfers with shaky hands or less than perfect vision.

Adaptive slope technology accounts for uphill and downhill slopes making club selection easy. 

Design and Technology

Are there other rangefinders out there that have more advanced tech than the Pro L2? Without a doubt. But that doesn’t mean that this rangefinder is at all lacking in that department.

Perhaps the features that stand out the most with the Pro L2 are rapid-fire detection and target lock technology. The former allows you to quickly acquire the target. As soon as you’re zeroed in, the latter will give you a gentle vibration to confirm you’re good to go.

Coupled with 6x magnification and you won’t have to second guess if you’re shooting the right target ever again. Golfers with less than perfect eyesight or shaky hands rave about the clarity of 6x magnification.

It’s one thing to have a precise yardage to your target. But it’s another thing to have a yardage that accounts for both uphill and downhill slopes as well. That’s precisely what the Pro L2’s adaptive slope technology gives you. Picking the right club has never been easier.


Some of the cheaper rangefinders are limited in the distances they can shoot. That’s definitely not the case with the Pro L2. It’s capable of finding targets up to 700 yards away. And I can attest from personal experience that it’s accurate within a single yard. That’s pretty impressive.


I’m notorious for misplacing, even all-out losing my rangefinders. But I don’t have to worry about that any more thanks to the Pro L2’s internal cart magnet that attaches securely to any metal surface. Not only does this feature keep the rangefinder secure, it makes for incredibly easy access too.


You truly get the complete package with the Pro L2, all the way down to the carrying case. Not only is it well-built, it’s waterproof. You won’t ever have to worry about moisture getting inside and compromising the rangefinder.

Lastly, Shot Scope’s two-year warranty is hard to beat. On top of that, you can return the Pro L2 for a full refund for up to 30 days after the date of purchase if you’re unsatisfied for some reason. 


As we mentioned in the opening, the Shot Scope Pro L2 is arguably the most affordable rangefinder on the market. But don’t let its modest price fool you; its reliability, performance, and function far exceed expectations.


The Pro L2 is the perfect rangefinder for any golfer that wants something they can rely on, but doesn’t want to spend a fortune. 


PROS

  • Price point is much less than other, similar rangefinders.
  • Accuracy within one yard is an industry best.
  • 6x magnification makes finding the target easy for everyone.

CONS

  • Shipping times can vary based on demand and inventory.
  • Rangefinder lacks some of the advanced features of other, more expensive rangefinders.
  • Replacement batteries may be difficult to find depending on where you look.

Our Experience

Over the years, I’ve tried what has to be north of 100 rangefinders. And I’ll be honest, some are really impressive, and others not so much.

But every Shot Scope rangefinder I’ve tried has more than met my expectations. That’s no different with the Pro L2. It has all the functions I need, and none that I don’t. And it’s also deadly accurate, which is the most important thing at the end of the day. 

Even though the Pro L2 isn’t the most expensive or sophisticated rangefinder on the market, I’m partial to it for the reasons mentioned above.
