There are few top brands that come to mind when we think about leaders in golf rangefinders. Shot Scope is certainly one of them. 

For years, they’ve been on the cutting edge of design and technology with each and every product they churn out. And their latest release of the Pro LX + Rangefinder only serves to further that reputation. 

If you’re interested in finding out a little more about what’s sure to be one of 2023’s hottest rangefinders, keep reading.

Key Features

Black and red dual optics make finding your target easy in any lighting condition.

Seven-X magnification means there’s no target too small for this rangefinder and your resolution is assured to be crystal clear.

Nine pockets give you plenty of storage for everything you need.

Design and Technology

It’s hard to pick a starting point when discussing this rangefinder as it concerns design and technology.

Let’s start with the fact that this device is a rangefinder and GPS all in one. That’s right, it comes with more than 36,000 preloaded courses that give you accurate GPS data in addition to the capability of using it as a rangefinder. If you would rather use one or the other, simply detach the rangefinder and you’re good to go. You can attach the GPS to your belt with the carabiner, or to any metal surface via the strong magnet. 

A range of up to 900 yards, 7x magnification, and rapid-fire detection are just a few additional features golfers love about this rangefinder.

Red and black optics are some of the clearest we’ve ever seen. They provide the perfect contrast to easily illuminate your target in any lighting condition. 

When you buy the Pro LX +, you’ll want to be sure and download the free app too. When you do, you’ll have access to free dashboard statistics. 

The device’s shot tracking capabilities are second to none as well. The GPS inventories a detailed history of every shot, plots them on the course map, allows you to share your rounds via the social feature, and gives access to more than 100 statistical metrics that can be broken down into the most finite of categories. 

For your short game, PinCollect Technology provides you enhanced stats on and around the green. This feature highlights strengths and weaknesses and will help you come up with a plan to improve quickly. 

Also included are 16 tracking tags that you put on the butt end of your club. Each of these interacts with the GPS to collect data pertinent to each individual weapon in your bag. 

Rounding out the package are a battery life of up to 15 hours, and a two-year limited warranty that’s one of the best in the business.


PROS

  • Three-in-one functions of rangefinder, GPS, and shot tracker are something we’ve never seen.
  • Raw number of functions is unheard of.
  • Quality build from a reputable brand inspires confidence.

CONS

  • May be difficult to use except for the most technologically inclined golfers.
  • Setup may take longer than traditional rangefinders.
  • Frequent software updates may be required.

Our Experience

Out of all the rangefinders I’ve tried (over 100) I’ve never seen one more technologically advanced than the Shot Scope Pro LX +. The sheer number of functions, modes, and capabilities this rangefinder has blows me away.

While I still can’t understand how each one of them works, I can tell you that the tech in the Pro LX + is impressive beyond words, and is sure to help golfers of all experience levels better understand their game and improve. 

I’ll be honest and say that this rangefinder is a bit over my head as a relative tech neophyte. But if you’re someone that loves chewing on stats, analyzing patterns, and looking at raw data as a means of getting better, there’s nothing on the market that compares to this rangefinder.
