Leupold has introduced their new GX®-1i2 Golf Rangefinder.  The company that has more than 100 years of experience in the optics business says their new model was created to meet the varied needs of golfers, with lots of customization options.

The GX-1i2 features Leupold’s exclusive PinHunter® 2 Laser Technology, has seven selectable aiming reticles, utilizes cutting edge micro-processing circuitry, and uses an advanced infrared laser to accurately and consistently hunt down the pin against virtually any background.

“The more powerful GX-1i2 offers golfers the ability to customize their on-course experience,” said Tim Lesser, director of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The upgraded mechanics and exclusive technology can help shave both time and strokes off the game for golfers of any experience level.”

The GX-1i2 includes updated Prism Lock Technology, which uses the highly reflective prisms already incorporated into many course features and pins to obtain a high intensity return to the rangefinder for greater accuracy. 

Other key GX-1i2 features include a high-contract LCD display, measurements in both yards and metres, and what they call a “DNA® engine” for instant measurements and a high degree of accuracy. There is also a Fog Mode that lets you measure distances accurately, even when the visibility is not the best.

The tournament legal model is fully waterproof, has 6x target magnification and a range of up to 800 yards.
