    Wosports Laser Rangefinder Review

    Can a sub $100 laser give you accuracy and compare to others on the market? We put it to the test here.

    Sounds like ok performance for the price but once you’ve used one of the high-end rangefinders with the pin seeking tech, it’s hard to settle for less. I would also worry about durability and customer service if it broke.

    They offer 18 months, but with smaller companies that have not been around so long, it is something to think about.

    Appreciate the write up. I have been considering it but the mediocre performance will have me staying away.

    Hoping THP can review the Caddytek version from Costco, it's $130 (goes on sale for $100) but the reviews are stellar

    Recently looked into lower option like this but after the review, I'm glad I passed. Too many concessions. Also, the convoluted website probably would have turned me off.

    Sounds like a decent option but, like most things, you get what you pay for.

    I've had good luck with cheaper options lately, they may not be "as" accurate, but close enough for an amateur like me!

    The biggest problem that I see is durability. A name like Nikon or Leupold has a reputation for quality and my Nikon 18 year old Nikon rangefinder is still working great and is super fast at picking up flags 200 yards out. To me it’s a silly place to save relatively small amount of money for a tool that can last 15+ years when golfers are likely spending at least a few hundred dollars for their shoes, shorts, shirt, belt, hat, and glove that they are wearing that day. I bought a Nikon Coolshot 40 for my daughter like new on eBay in March for $155 and its optics and speed are equal to my $400 Leupold.

    I did, I meant the accuracy I see on the cheaper models I've used, a TecTecTec and super generic, compared to my precision pro. And you throw in my Golfshot on my iPhone and I could get about 4 different yardages for the same thing, but ultimately they are close enough in an acceptable margin of error for me, and it looks like you saw the same as well.

    The fact that this unit was as accurate as a Bushnell or PXP at that price point is a win for those who want a budget rangefinder. After all the point of a laser is accuracy compared to a GPS unit

    Thanks for the review. I've never had, or even used, a rangefinder. I pretty much use my phone for distance (Arccos right now). I've looked into some of the cheaper units on Amazon (specifically by TecTecTec and Tacklife), but never pulled the trigger. Many of them have good reviews and I assume most are fake. I'm thinking my next golf purchase will be one by Precision Pro.

    I just received a 50 dollar Amazon gift card and was looking at this unit. It is nice to know it is accurate, but the inconsistency of the features working make me just assume corners were cut on all points of the unit and I will look into either a used unit or just wait on something else. I have never had a range finder, and I would hate for my first experience with something that is supposed to help my game make me frustrated.

    I hear from a lot of people that their unit is dying, but they don't want to drop big coin on a new one.

    This seems like a great option for those on a budget who just want a number.
