For those of you who may struggle with acquiring your target when using a laser rangefinder, Nikon is lending a hand.

The company has introduced the COOLSHOT 80i VR and COOLSHOT 80 VR Golf Laser Rangefinders, which the company claims are the first in the world to offer optical VR (Vibration Reduction). The technology helps compensate for the body’s inability to stay perfectly still. The company has offered the technology for years in their photography products.

COOLSHOT 80i/80 VR Laser Rangefinders feature a 6x monocular for a bright, crisp sighting and boast an uncluttered display.  COOLSHOT 80i VR features Nikon’s ID (Incline/Decline) Technology to compensate for uphill or downhill slope  This feature can also be disabled to become Rules of Golf compliant for tournament use.

“The COOLSHOT 80 VR and 80i VR rangefinders are some of the most exciting new products of  Nikon’s recent releases.  Not only do they make it easier for golfers to range the flagstick and other objects, we are able to offer them at a price point that doesn’t break the bank.  We strive to make practical advances in the golfing industry and this is just the beginning of some exciting new things golfers can expect from Nikon,” said Randy Garrison, Associate General Manager at Nikon Sport Optics.
