A rangefinder is an essential part of a junior golfer's equipment and the Bushnell Tour V4 JOLT is packed with the latest technology. The benefits of rangefinders and the factors that need to be taken into account when considering buying a rangefinder are covered in detail in Best Range Finders for Junior Golfers.
The Bushnell Tour V4 Jolt is probably one of the best overall rangefinders you can find in the market and on the course at the moment.
The Bushnell is an industry leader in golf rangefinders. The Bushnell Tour 4V Jolt is a great combination of size, speed, accuracy and jolt. Pin Seeker Technology™ with JOLT provides the golfer with short vibrating bursts to reinforce that the laser has locked onto the flag. This is very helpful for a junior who may have trouble stabilizing the rangefinder significantly to be sure of an accurate lock. It is legal for USGA tournament play and complies with USGA rule 14-3/.05. It carries a 2 year warranty.

The reviews on this product are excellent. It is well priced, easy to use and the jolt feature has significant appeal. These factors are all advantageous when you are buying a rangefinder for a junior golfer. The only downside may be the slight difficulty in replacing the battery. 5X magnification is good and with the fast focus feature makes for an easy lock on the target, but there are rangefinders that are stronger.
