Scoreband Pulse Rangefinder: Distance Runner

May 28, 2015

A somewhat recent innovation, rangefinders are still typically expensive.

And for those of us who often play unknown courses or tracks without proper yardage makers, a scope is about as crucial as any golf accessory.

Scoreband, a company known for its sporty rangefinding watches, has launched a traditional handheld rangefinder that’s among the most affordable on the market.

At only 150 grams and with dimensions of 4” x 3” x 1.5”, the Scoreband Pulse is sleeker and less intrusive than some competitors, but offers the same features you’d expect from a high-end rangefinder: six times magnification, a 400-yard range, yard and meter options and precision. And maybe…just maybe, these things can help speed up play. $180;
