Choosing a Laser Range Finder for You:

Find your range, and your shot will follow. The single best way to increase accuracy is to gather more information about your target. That's where SPITZER precision laser rangefinders enter.

 

Instead of approximating distances, laser rangefinders have changed the way people have measured distances for surveying, golfing, hunting or any other measuring that requires reasonable accuracy. Thousands of hunters and golfers are using the range finders to quickly and accurately measure distances and improve performance. In fact, over 600 touring golf pros, use laser range finders, including 18 of the top 20 money winners on the PGA tour.
Depending on the application, there is a suitable range finder for your usage. SPITZER utilizes the latest in range finder technology to enable you to gain the most performance for your needs while providing great value at the same time.
 

How do Laser Range Finders work? The following is a step-by-step sequence of events a range finder performs to acquire the distance to a target:

Laser Range Finder Principles of Operation:
1
A very fast pulse of laser light is produced and emitted from the unit.
2
The transmitter, receiver and monocular are accurately aligned.
3
The flight time is precisely measured as the laser reflects off the target and back into the receiver.
4
The range to the target is displayed to the user in the LCD.
5
The user is able to determine distance to the target and plan action.
