What is the difference between the Blade™ and Blade™ Slope Laser Rangefinders?

The Blade™ Slope includes slope compensation, which means you get the line-of-sight range to the pin, and the range adjusted for the angle of the terrain between you and your target. Both rangefinders are tournament legal as the Blade Slope also includes external LEDs to show Slope Mode is in use.

What is image stabilization and why does it help my golf game?

The Anarch™ Laser Rangefinder is built around image stabilization technology. This means that gyroscopes in the rangefinder work to steady the almost imperceptible shakes and movements in your hands, and the larger movements from things like wind gusts. That means that you can be confident you’re locked onto the pin, not a tree behind it.
