Bushnell is a big name in the rangefinder industry.
They have a varied offer, and their products are often featured in top 10 lists. This product is proof of why that’s the case.
What do you get with the Tour V4?
For starters, a large range--it’s accurate from 5 to 1000 yards away. Moreover, you’ll only deal with a 1-yard error margin and you’ll be able to zoom up to five times.
It’s a nice, robust offer.
We want to praise their Jolt Technology. The V4 features one of the best PinSeeker technology, so you are able to know exactly when it’s time to get your stance on. You even get a 2-year warranty on all of these, so it looks like Bushnell has faith in their product’s durability.
And for good reason…
The construction of this device is outstanding. Not only does it look good, but you get a nice combination of rubbery ergonomic surfaces, high-quality plastic, and durable.
But these are basic pluses we’ve talked about, and a lot of other products feature them.
The awesome thing about this device is that it appeals to GPS users as well - It has 36.000 pre-uploaded courses in over 30 countries that you can browse and have measurements and top-down views of.
It just keeps getting better.
From all the products we’ve tested, the Bushnell Tour V4 was the most accurate and consistent - you’re just bound to get the yardage right.
So is this product perfect?
Unfortunately, no. There are issues you might end up dealing with.
A semi-issue is that it doesn’t feature any type of slope mode. We say “semi”, because if you’re a tournament player (or if you’re thinking of becoming one) this is great. We say “issue” because some product videos advertise some sort of slope mode, but it isn’t there.
What you need to look out for…
...is maintenance. While this Bushnell is durable right out of the box, it can break easily and become inaccurate from the slightest bump.
If you’re careful with your stuff, however, that shouldn’t be an issue.
What could be an issue for all users…
...is the lenses. Don’t get me wrong, they’re high-quality, but they can be burnt easily. We’ve talked to people that had to send this product back (luckily it was under warranty) because even a few hours of exposure to the sun can melt the first layer of optic components.
Definitely watch out for that.
