Yardage Pro Laser Rangefinder – GOLF Pinseeker 1500
Your Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 is an advanced premium laser rangefinder produced from digital technology that allows range readings from 5 to 1,500 yards. Measuring 1.7 by 5.1 by 3.7 inches, the 10-ounce Pinseeker 1500 delivers superb and accurate range performance to +/- one yard. The Pinseeker 1500 features Selective Targeting Modes, superb optical quality, 100% waterproof construction, and Bushnell’s RainGuard coating.
The Pinseeker 1500 emits invisible, eye-protected, infrared energy pulses. Its Advanced Digital microprocessor and ASIC chip (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit) leads to instantaneous and accurate readings each and every time. Sophisticated digital technology instantaneously calculates distances by measuring the time it takes for each and every pulse to trip from the rangefinder to the target and back.
The ranging accuracy of the Pinseeker 1500 is plus or minus one yard under most circumstances. The maximum range of the instrument will depend on the reflectivity of the target. The maximum distance for most objects is 1,000 yards, at the same time as for highly reflective objects the maximum is 1,500 yards.
The Pinseeker 1500 features a powerful 7x magnification monocular for viewing your target. Optics are fully multi-coated, allowing maximum light transmission for optimum brightness, superb resolution, and contrast for a clear vivid image even in low-light conditions such as dusk or crack of dawn. A liquid crystal display (LCD) is mounted within the optical system and, when activated, displays a reticle for targeting, yards and meters, and Mode indicators.
Laser Rangefinder Features
Standard with Automatic Scan
Scan across the course at the same time as viewing a steadily up to date LCD display of the distance between you and your target.
You’ll be able to quickly make a choice from these standard measuring units with a simple press of a button.
The distance to objects targeted in these crosshairs can be displayed at the Distance Readout with the press of a button.
Flashes when battery power is low.
Target Quality Gauge
Gauge indicating amount of energy pulses being received back from the target.
Pinseeker 1500 Targeting Modes
Geared for close-range use, this mode acquires the distances of small targets and game without inadvertently measuring background target distances. When multiple object is acquired, the closer of the two objects is shown at the LCD display.
Ignores the foreground, such as brush, boulders and tree branches, and provides distances at the LCD display to background objects only.
Designed exclusively with the bottom of the cup in mind, this mode allows easy acquisition of the flag without inadvertently capturing background target distances. When multiple object is acquired, the closer of the two objects is shown at the LCD display.
Laser Rangefinder Tech Talk
A laser rangefinder is a distance-measuring instrument that uses laser technology to calculate the distance to targeted objects. Accuracy is +/- 1 yard, and the distance is displayed instantaneously on a built-in, through-the-lens Liquid Crystal Display.
How a Laser Rangefinder Works
Bushnell’s Yardage Pro rangefinders use an invisible, eye-protected Class 1 Laser beam (as classified by the FDA) which is “bounced” off distant objects with the press of a button. Then, the rangefinder’s high-speed digital clock measures the time it took for a laser beam to achieve a target and return to the unit. Next, the usage of advanced digital electronics, the rangefinder in an instant calculates the distance within +/- 1 yard and shows the range in either yards or meters on a through-the-lens LCD Display. All of the process is so fast that lower than a second elapses between the time you press the button to generate a laser beam to the time the exact range to your target is displayed.
Reflectivity of Target Types
Because rangefinders “bounce” a laser beam off the target in an effort to take a measurement, their range is partially made up our minds by the reflectivity of the target. In other words, hard or “reflective” targets — like a rock cliff or semi-truck — can also be measured at greater distances than soft surface targets, like a deer. Ranges for slightly reflective targets, like trees, fall somewhere in the middle. Most experienced hunters will use their rangefinder to steadily estimate ranges to near and distant landmarks before they in fact encounter a game animal. By “pre-measuring” ranges to spots where a trophy is likely to appear, they may be able to pay attention to making an accurate shot when the moment of truth arrives.
