New Leupold GX-2i2 Golf Rangefinder Now Available

(BEAVERTON, Ore.) — Leupold’s new GX-2i2 comes packed with advanced technology that enables golfers to easily customize the rangefinder to their individual needs and use it as a handy tool to improve scores and speed up pace of play. GX-2i2 is now widely available from Leupold GX dealers and online retailers.

According to a recent United States Golf Association decision, tournament use of GX-2i2 is permitted under the Rules of Golf when a Local Rule is in effect (see USGA Decision 14-3/0.5) and the device is not used in True Golf Range mode. TGR allows golfers to compensate for uphill shots that play long and downhill shots that play short.

“Our new GX-2i2 laser rangefinder offers all the features and benefits of our most sophisticated technology,” said Rob Morrison, vice president, global marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “GX-2i2 provides the ultimate in customization for golfers of all skill levels who want to shave strokes off their game and get around the course faster. It’s like having a personal caddie at your fingertips that can take the measure of a course and really knows your game.”

A recent update to Leupold’s high-performance DNA (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy) engine and an advanced infrared laser empower the GX-2i2 to deliver faster measurements with accuracy displayed to the nearest half yard.

With Leupold’s TGR and Club Selector features, GX-2i2 takes customization to an elite level by providing accurate ranging information matched to the slope of the shot, atmospheric conditions and a golfer’s personal hitting strength. TGR displays the adjusted “plays like” range, calculated from the laser-measured line-of-sight distance, incline or decline, trajectory of the ball, current temperature, and specific altitude. Club Selector factors in the golfer’s specific hitting strength and TGR to the target, automatically recommending the proper club for each shot. Users simply input their personal striking distance for three specific clubs and the GX-2i2 does the rest, even indicating when the distance falls between clubs.

Other key features include PinHunter 2 Laser Technology, which effectively filters out large background objects and zeroes in on the flag or pin for extremely precise and fast target acquisition. In addition, heightened sensitivity of the rangefinder’s Prism Lock Technology allows golfers to get their distances easily, quickly and with extreme accuracy when a course is outfitted with reflective prisms. Maximum ranging distance on prisms is 800 yards.

GX-2i2 also offers fog mode to cut through mist and provide fast, accurate distance measurements. The rangefinder has 6X magnification and a one-touch scan mode that allows users to sweep the landscape while continuously measuring distance. Golfers can select from seven aiming reticles, choosing the one which works best for the intended target and usage. Distance can be displayed in yards or meters.

Built to Leupold’s exacting standards for ruggedness, GX-2i2 is compact, weighing just 6.8 ounces, and measuring only 4.2 inches long, 3.0 inches high and 1.6 inches wide. Additional features include multi-coated lenses for a crystal-clear image, a new high-definition LCD display and fold-down rubber eyecups. Each rangefinder is waterproof and comes with a Cordura case, battery, lanyard and complete instructions.
