The TecTecTec ULT-X laser rangefinder delivers when it comes to value. Accurate and easy to use.
In a market that’s become increasingly crowded, TecTecTec has carved out a space for themselves by focusing on value. With rangefinders like the VPRO500 retailing for $150, they’ve made converts of many golfers.
Their latest offering is the ULT-X rangefinder which offers more premium features without forgetting their budget-friendly focus.
Set Up & Ease of Use
Like most rangefinders, setting up the ULT-X requires nothing more than installing the battery. The battery compartment is located on the bottom of the device.
The ULT-X rangefinder has two buttons: Power and Mode. One press of the Power button turns the device on, another press gives you the distance to whatever you’re looking at. Pressing Mode cycles through two or three modes, depending on whether you have slope mode engaged.
Slope is turned on and off by pulling on the lens. When it’s extended, slope is on, and a yellow band is visible to let you know.
Accuracy & Performance
On the basics, the TecTecTec ULT-X performs very well. It turns on and provides yardages quickly. It’s not quite as fast as my Bushnell Pro X2, but the difference is tiny and the Bushnell carries a much larger price tag.
The ULT-X is also quite accurate. TecTecTec claims that it’s accurate to 0.3 yards at 300 yards and 0.5 yards at 600 yards. That’s far more accurate than I need it to be, and I found it’s measurements to be in line with other rangefinders I tested it against.
There are three modes available to golfers with the ULT-X. M1 is a standard rangefinder mode. M2 adds a target lock with a vibration alert. M3, only accessible when slope mode is engaged, has target lock and a slope adjustment. In all modes, the display is clear and easy to read.
My one complaint is with the way slope gets turned on and off. Pulling the lens out is easy to do, but the problem is that it gets turned off easily. Most of the time when I put the ULT-X into my bag or my pocket, the lens was pushed in enough to turn off slope. Having to pull the lens back out isn’t a major issue, but it does degrade the user experience.
The TecTecTec ULT-X laser rangefinder is available for $250 (support PluggedInGolf, buy it HERE). This price places the ULT-X well below the Bushnell Tour V4 with Slope, which retails for $400 or more. The TecTecTec lacks some of the refinement of the Bushnell, but at a price of almost 40% less, it’s a great value.
The TecTecTec ULT-X rangefinder continues to build the brand’s reputation for exceptional value. At a price that other companies can’t touch, they’re delivering a fast, accurate laser with lots of upgraded features. Combined with a 100-Day money back guarantee and a two year warranty, it’s a deal that’s hard to beat.
