Hi-Tech Shot Scope PRO L1 Laser Rangefinder Makes its US Debut Company’s First Rangefinder

Edinburgh, Scotland – On the heels of the V3 Smart Golf Watch debut, the first multi-function watch to feature artificial intelligence and offer golfers real-time on-course performance tracking capabilities, Shot Scope (, a leading international manufacturer of GPS-based golf management systems, today introduced the PRO L1 Laser Rangefinder to the United States market, adding a new hi-tech device for golfers improve their game.

The Company’s first high-performance laser rangefinder, the lightweight, easy-to-use PRO L1 is the perfect combination of size, accuracy and innovation. The PRO L1 is highlighted by Advanced Slope Technology, providing golfers with compensated distance whether a target is uphill or downhill from their location, and accurate up to 3.6 inches. This function can easily be toggled on and off if being used for tournament play.

The PRO L1 also offers a Precision Clear Lens which allows users to seamlessly switch between the laser’s black and red dual optics, with the option to view distances in either yards or meters. With these options, regardless of lighting on the course, golfers will be able to capture the target and be confident in the number.

With six-times magnification, the PRO L1 has a range of up to 875 yards, meaning the flagstick is always within reach. The rangefinder also features Target Lock Vibration so it knows when the target is hit. The water-resistant laser was developed to play in all weather conditions, carrying conveniently positioned grip patches to prevent slipping from the hand.

A product which rivals competitors that have been in the rangefinder space for years, the PRO L1 includes a premium carrying case, lanyard, carry clip, cleaning cloth, replacement battery and 12-month limited warranty with an unmatched suggested retail price of $199.99.

“This is an exciting time for our company,” said David Hunter, CEO, Shot Scope. “Following the successful launch of the PRO L1 in Europe, we are now introducing this innovation in the United States. “While this is our first rangefinder product, golfers can expect what they have come to know from Shot Scope over the past number of years. They will get the ultimate in performance and accuracy, at an affordable cost. We are extremely proud of the technology in this rangefinder.”

The Shot Scope PRO L1 Laser Rangefinder, which conforms to the rules of golf, is available immediately. It is offered in two stylish color options, including blue and gray.
