Nikon Introduces New Laser Rangefinder COOLSHOT

March 29, 2012

Nikon Vision Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of its Laser Rangefinder COOLSHOT—the new golfing rangefinder brand and a successor to acclaimed Nikon Laser 350G—with a high-speed ranging system out to 550 m/600 yd. with 0.5-m/yd. distance display step.

Laser Rangefinder COOLSHOT offers easy and immediate subject acquisition with the 6x multicoated lenses, large ocular lens and wider field of view. The cool, ergonomic design and compact, lightweight body make it easy to hold, allowing golfers instant measurement during critical situations on the course.

The newly featured LED illumination provides a bright display in dark conditions.
