Cons with Solution
1. Not particularly feature-rich
Solution: Particularly we can say that Tour V4 is not come up with slope features. However, there is a reason behind this, and that is tournament playing rule. USGA rules don’t support slope feature. So to be compliant for tournament play, Bushnell Tour V4 designed without slope features. If you badly need to use slope feature and have no aim to use it in any tournament, then you can switch to another version of Bushnell V4 slope rangefinder.
2. Need a steady hand to get an accurate measure
Solution: Though it is excellent in the feature, for long yardage it needs a fixed arm. Those who have shaky hand it’s a bit difficult for them to get accurate readings. However, the Jolt technology will recover this problem to an extent.
