When playing golf, knowing the distance is very important the first time, which determines the performance. In practice, players often judge the distance from the ball to the flagstick through visual inspection by themselves or the caddie to decide which iron in the bag to choose and the strength of the swing. In addition to the player's own level, the selection of professional equipment is also very important, the most direct of which is the laser rangefinder (single telescope type rangefinder).
Misunderstandings that are easy to appear when purchasing a laser rangefinder:
1. Blindly pursue high targets
Any product has its own technical indicators, and high indicators certainly represent relatively high performance. The most important technical indicator of a golf rangefinder is its measuring range and accuracy. With the continuous technological breakthroughs in the accuracy and range of laser rangefinders in recent years, many players want to keep their equipment accurate at all times, so they desperately pursue high-precision and high-range products when purchasing products. . In fact, this kind of purchase is a misunderstanding. The rangefinder cannot meet the conditions that fully meet the parameters. There are many interfering factors, such as harsh environment, complex terrain, and actual measurement targets. When purchasing, if the user wants to measure the effect of 600 meters, do not choose the rangefinder with the parameter of 600, because this may not reach the data you want to measure.
Second, blindly pursue high prices
Nowadays, the price of laser rangefinders is extremely unstable in the market, so many users think that high-priced products are good when they buy, regardless of their performance and applicability. They often start to complain when they use it, and then have to spend money on other styles. So when you buy a rangefinder, remember: price is not the point, the point is the product itself. See clearly the product features and don't blindly pursue low prices. Pay attention to the product's functional parameter errors and functions that are not as sophisticated. Choose according to your own habits and needs. If necessary, you can seek professional guidance.
3. Ignore "safe" and "unsafe"
As the name suggests, the laser rangefinder uses laser as the main working material to work. At present, the working materials of handheld laser rangefinders on the market mainly include the following:
Semiconductor lasers with operating wavelengths of 905 nanometers and 1540 nanometers, and YAG lasers with operating wavelengths of 1064 nanometers.
The wavelength of 1064 nanometers is harmful to human skin and eyes, especially the eyes. Once exposed to the laser of 1064 nanometers wavelength, it may cause permanent damage. Therefore, the manufacture of hand-held laser rangefinders abroad has completely banned the 1064 nanometer laser. But in China, some manufacturers still produce 1064 nanometer laser rangefinders, so you should pay attention when purchasing them.
Eliminating these misunderstandings, players can quickly select a rangefinder that suits them and achieve good results.
