The V1 I tested was the orange model and is bright and trendy looking. It comes with a very handy case that attaches to your bag via a carabiner and it all looks great.
It sits comfortably into your hand and is therefore very easy to grip making “zapping” the distance nice and simple.
I have found the V1 to be very accurate. The slope distance is also accurate and easy to turn off when in competitions. It gives a little buzz when it’s locked onto the target which is a great addition.
This is a very good laser rangefinder, affordable too, at around £199. The simple setup and easy to use nature of the device makes this a great addition to the bag of any serious golfer.
The Bottom Line
I found the V1 to be impressive and easy to use. Accurate yardages make this a great rangefinder. I would highly recommend this to any golfer looking for a rangefinder.
