PinHunter and Prism Lock
The GX-4's most elemental features are its PinHunter and Prism Lock functions. Every GX-4 golf rangefinder has been precisely calibrated to fire a laser beam at the target in the crosshairs, whether it's a flag, tree, or sand trap. The rangefinder then uses its proprietary beam geometry to gauge the returns from the pin, and its advanced GX software to accurately separate those returns from the objects in the background. There's no better way to determine exactly where a flag or water hazard is located. It's even easier to range a distance pin on courses that utilize prism technology thanks to the GX-4's Prism Lock. Simply hold the top button to scan the area around the pin. The moment the GX-4 identifies a prism-topped flagstick, the rangefinder will beep and the display will freeze. The PinHunter and Prism Lock features combine to make the GX-4 the most accurate golf rangefinder on the market.
The GX-4's PinHunter function lasers precisely on a pin or other target.
The GX-4 also includes a number of advanced features, accessible by switching the faceplate from chrome to yellow. The True Golf Range (TGR) feature, for example, uses sophisticated algorithmic-based software, temperature inputs, and altitude inputs to tell you exactly how far you should play a shot. If a golfer is hitting from the tee at a 30-degree slope above the green, the TGR will incorporate a golfer's hitting strength to calculate the best possible horizontal and vertical approach to the flag. Some golfers may be better served hitting a 6-iron, which will push the ball at a flatter trajectory and drop it down to the green sooner, while others would do better hitting a high 8-iron. The Club Selector takes the TGR function a step further by automatically recommending the appropriate club for each shot, and even indicating when the distance falls between clubs. Simply input the striking distance for three specific clubs and the GX-4 will do the rest. The TGR and Club Selector features offer a perfect way to get to know a course and improve your golf game. And if you're playing a competitive round with friends who demand an even playing field, simply snap the chrome faceplate back on and the GX-4 turns back into a traditional "no cheating" rangefinder.
The GX-4 also offers both Fog and Scan modes. Unlike most rangefinders--which give measurements from the first target returned, which in some cases is the fog between you and the pin--the GX-4 cuts through the weather to provide fast, accurate measurements to the green. You don't let anything stand between you and the cup, so why should your rangefinder? The Scan mode, meanwhile, delivers multiple readings in one quick sweep. Just hold down the Power button and the display will continuously update with accurate line-of-sight measurements.
Construction and Functionality
Leupold's products are legendary for their durability, with a ruggedly built housing and waterproof body. Fortunately for users, the optical system in the GX-4 is built to the same exacting standards, with precision glass, cutting-edge coating technology, and rugged structural components. The resulting optics are bright and clear, and offer accurate ranging, low glare, scratch resistance, and years of dependable use. On top of the optical precision, the GX-4 sports vivid red OLED displays, which are easy to read against any background and far superior to the standard LCD displays found in most golf rangefinders. Finally, the GX-4 offers an intuitive Quick Set Menu, giving you fast access to all the features of your rangefinder without cluttering the field of view. There's a reason the GX-4 is considered the top golf rangefinder on the market by critics.
