Frequently Asked Questions
Q: My coolshot did not come with instructions
A: Look through view finder. Press button as you put x on the flag (or the spot). Get a readout. Practice on your neighbor’s house, a tree, or a wall. Not hard at all.
Q: is it easy to use?
A: Very easy to use and fits perfectly in your hand.
Q: I have a RF that works well with pins that have reflectors but not so well when there is no reflector. What kind of performance does this have?
A: Still works without a reflector, especially less than 240 yards or so. Further, than that, it is more difficult to get a good number (though still possible). The more expensive RFs from Bushnell work better at those ranges but also cost a ton more. Overall, the Cool shot is a good buy.
Q: Can it measure distance in range practice-the length of the flight and landing of the ball?
A: Yes. It can measure the distance to about anything you point it at.
The clarity of NIKON Nikon Coolshot 20 is unmistakably clearer than many other brand rangefinders. It is light and picks up on any object you attempt to reach.
It also reads bunker distances, water hazards, etc. It is a wonderful product to serious golfers out there or any golfers looking to be the best or anyone looking to start out with a reliable and affordable rangefinder; this is the best for you.
