Precision Pro NX7 Vs Bushnell Tour V4 Golf Rangefinders

For the everyday golfer, Bushnell and Precision make some of the best rangefinders on the market.

What we mean is that sometimes you don’t need all the fancy bells and whistles that some rangefinders come with. More importantly, sometimes you don’t need to pay for all the superfluous features.

Today we are going to be taking a look at a couple of solid entry-level golf rangefinders that will fit the budget of the most frugal golfers.

Precision Pro NX7 Overview

The Precision Pro NX7 is a pretty basic golf rangefinder but brings with it a few perks that may be enough to sway many frugal golfers.

What we are referring to is the lifetime battery replacement offer that Precision Golf has attached to this model. All you have to do is register your device once you get it and you will be eligible for free battery replacements as long as you have it.

It should be clarified though that for this article, we tested the Precision Pro NX7 Slope which is different from the Precision Pro NX7 Non-Slope edition. You can probably imagine what that means but we will discuss it further in the features section.

Some golfers may find that the Precision Pro NX7 is underpowered but it is still accurate enough for the average player.

Bushnell Tour V4 Overview

The Bushnell Tour V4 is a laser rangefinder that golfers are still seeking out even after it has been discontinued.

That’s right, the Bushnell Tour V4 can no longer be bought new from the manufacturer. That’s not to say that you can’t still find it new at retailers – in fact many golfers have. The Tour V4 is pricier than the Precision Pro NX7 but it is a bit more powerful.

Still, don’t get the wrong idea. We would still say that the V4 is an entry-level rangefinder as it lacks some advanced features and the range that higher-tier Bushnell models have.

The Bushnell Tour V4 is accurate, which is the most important aspect of any golf rangefinder.

The Bushnell Tour V4 has the most essential features that golfers need in competitive play.

Precision Pro NX7 First Impressions

The Precision Pro NX7 struck us as pretty basic at first and we came to realize that this initial impression was accurate which did not end up being a bad thing.

Make no mistake about it: the Precision Pro NX7 is a bare-bones rangefinder with limited features. However, if you are just starting out with the game, it should be all you need to feel more confident in your rounds.

Key Features

The good news about the basic features of the Precision Pro NX7 is that they are very easy to use.

With the Precision Pro NX7, you get a maximum range of 600 yards. For most beginners, that will be enough. The Precision Pro NX7 also has target acquisition technology that will help you lock onto the pin and get it’s accurate distance.

You also get slope calculation which accounts for incline and decline in distance readings (again, with the Slope edition). This feature can be turned off to make it tournament-legal.

The Precision Pro NX7 also features a clear 6x magnification lens and is water-resistant.

The price can’t be beat and the features are all essential.

Bushnell Tour V4 First Impressions

The Tour V4 has a sleek, modern look that we liked immediately.

However we were a bit disappointed at the lack of basic Bushnell features and it’s underpowered lens.

Key Features

The Bushnell Tour V4 is also very easy to use right out of the box.

The Tour V4 features the pin locking system that vibrates when it has locked onto the flag. However, the standard Tour V4 edition does not have slope calculation technology. There is a V4 version that does though.

The Bushnell Tour V4 is compatible with the Bushnell Golf App which provides helpful overhead maps of courses and holes from around the world.

The Tour V4 has a 5x lens and a maximum range of 1000 yards. It also features a clear LCD display and an adjustable lens. Of course, the no-slope edition is perfectly tournament-legal

The Tour V4 also features a multi-coated glass lens for durability.

Who is the Precision Pro NX7 for

The Precision Pro NX7 will suit mid to high handicappers looking for a high-value, low-cost golf rangefinder.

While the Precision Pro NX7 lacks advanced rangefinder features, it was never meant to cater to scratch players. If you keep that in mind you will be very satisfied with this device.

In fact, for the price, we found  that the Precision Pro NX7 actually was a better buy than the Bushnell Tour V4 – even if Precision Pro isn’t as popular a brand as Bushnell.


  • It actually does a good job of stabilizing the view if you have shaky hands
  • It’s accurate within about 2 yards
  • It gives off a light vibration when it is locked onto the flag
  • It’s less expensive than the Bushnell Tour V4


  • The 600 yard range is a bit of a let-down
  • This is not the type of rangefinder that will grow with you as your game advances

Overall Score: 93/100
