Customer reviews

I got my Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser just a few months ago, the light weight is really doing me a great favor as am able to carry the golf rangefinder from place to place with lots of convenience. The unit is also very easy to operate. The batteries are still good and still able to keep charge for long.

My place has rain like every day and to my surprise I am able to use this small gadget that was great! Using the Nikon COOLSHOT is also easy that even after I bought it I didn’t go through the user guide. Am able to get my targets very clear more than other golf range finders my friends use.

Like my previous Nikon, I have not had a complications with the Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser. With just a single push of the power button, the golf range finder does scan for 8 seconds without having to continuously push the power button, when working with this golf range finder there is less tension in your hands and more stability which gives more consistent and good yardages. There is less tension in the hands and more stability which equals to more consistent and reproducible yardages. This golf range finder is very light, I carry it around in my golf bag or even in my personal bag. It’s compact and long lasting also.

My only concern is with the water proofing capability, the Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser can is done in such a way that water cannot get into it, but when any water gets into the gadget, it stops working. According to the customer care personnel I was advised to always ensure in case I am using the golf range finder in rainy conditions I have it wiped with a dry cloth so that no water penetrates into the gadget especially to the battery section.


In summary the Nikon COOLSHOT 40 Golf Laser is able to serve you effectively in all your golf range finding needs. Get one today!
