    Vortex is an amazing rangefinder. I like its sturdiness. Even at first glance, you can say that the housing is durable and that it really looks so tough. Optics wise, it is great. The only flaw I’ve experience is that sometimes, it doesn’t do a good performance especially when the sun is too hot. But when its quite cloudy, I can experience a full and commendable ranging, however, the weather is not always like that. We are used to play during a sunny day.

    • Hey Homer,
      Happy to know that this post helped you.
      Yes, that’s true. I agree with you. I think this is also a problem experienced not just by vortex and their models but also true to other brands of rangefinders. Some use umbrellas or cover their rangefinders when ranging and it looks like it’s a better strategy.

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; but the layout seems not to be user friendly. Maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Thanks for your awesome guide about golf rangefinder!
