It doesn’t take a lot of use to see why rangefinders hold so much importance to golfers and hunters. This is because a good range finder gives an accurate distance between the user and the target, be it animal or sporting. The distance calculation is a great tool for the user to know how far they are from the pin, and can inform everything from club to direction.
The Simmons 801405 Rangefinder is one of the best in the market. Everyone who loves golf and wants to make their life around the course easier could put it to good use. It is a compact sized model which comes with a stylish black casing. Since it is user-friendly, many users learn to use it within a few minutes after they first switch it on. Simmons 801405 Rangefinder has one of the best best in-view LCD displays you can hope for. This is proven by the fact that almost universally, reviews and consumers have appreciated its LCD display on forums and reviews.
The user only needs to look inside the eyepiece. Everything else is then handled by the screen. The Screen itself has a very neat and high tech (whilst still easy to use) display and also shows a battery indicator to warn you when you’re running low. Simmons 801405 Rangefinder also identifies your target, in this case the hole, and it appears on the screen as well. The screen also has an option for whether to display the distance in yards or meters depending on what you are used to. The magnification range of the rangefinder is an impressive 4x which permits even long distances to be measured without any hassle, no more trouble on those par 5s! Along with the distance measurement, the device also comes with vertical configuration.
Unlike some range finders, Simmons 801405 Rangefinder has a weather resistant casing to suit all conditions and make sure it isn’t damaged even in the rain – it comes in black and camouflage. The casing is of such a great quality that it protects the rangefinder from even the more extreme weather conditions, if you’re brave enough to play through them. Some people have used it during heavy rainfall and reported that the rangefinder doesn’t get affected or damaged. Since it is also water-resistant, the rangefinder is easy to be cleaned and maintained by the user.
The Simmons 801405 also has a one touch button which makes its operation extremely simple. The button is not just a power button but also used for initiating range measurements, activating laser and switching metrics. The operations work on a single button press action on this simple device, which even your kid (or grandad) could use. In short, the device is easy to handle, weather resistance and requires nothing awkward such as power adapters. Moreover the company offers one year limited warranty to its users. Past users have hardly found faults in the device. Incase you think the range is being inconsistent, we recommend that you use the warranty and get it replaced. The cons of Simmons 801405 Rangefinder include no eye relief for glass wearers and I’ve scoured the internet to find an isolated couple of cases where there were errors when measuring within 100 yards.
The final verdict for this product is that it should definitely be considered by the serious golfer who wants to improve his or her game. Many online retailers are providing discounts on the product. Remember that you have a one year warranty so should you encounter any problems, your back is probably covered. It is an impressive product that is quite light in weight but doesn’t compromise on offering the maximum features for providing customer satisfaction to its loyal customers.
