Laser Link Switch Tour Review
The Switch Tour golf rangefinder shares Laser Link’s iconic pistol-shaped and trigger design, but it’s unique versatility of its target-seeking and distance-ranging prowess is all its own.
Being able to shift between Quickshot 2.0 and RH2 technologies at the slide of a switch while using the Red Dot Aiming feature with the Zero-In Alignment System, makes it a tool perfect for an afternoon on the green.
The Switch Tour is a pretty popular product since it offers the best of both worlds.
Online, reviewers have given it a fantastic rating that puts it up there with the Red Hot 2 rangefinder.
Its versatile and zeroing-in features are definitely what puts this all-around rangefinder at the top of the totem pole.
- Red Hot technology
- Quickshot technology
- 3 confirmation settings
- Poor battery door
Switch Tour Golf Rangefinder Q&A:
This specific rangefinder is the top drawer item in Laser Link’s golf product line. Its new and innovative design combines the Quickshot and the Red Hot technologies together to give you the best of both.
When you’re flipped into Quickshot mode, target-specific and accuracy is the name of the game. You’re going to be able to get precise distance readings since it will only read off flagsticks equipped with prisms.
This ensures that you’re only getting the reading to the flagstick and nothing else. Less room for error, right? The maximum yard range is 600 yards in QS mode. This is 200 yards more than what the actual Quickshot 2.0 is capable of.
In the reverse, when you’re flipped into Red Hot mode, you have the versatility of being able to get a distance reading on any target. Not just reflective prisms. Your maximum yard range is also increased to 900 yards.
The pistol-shaped design is meant to be for easy use. Although there isn’t any magnification available with the Switch Tour, it comes with lots of gripping and comfortable grooves to conveniently hold with two hands for extra steadiness.
Since it doesn’t have to be placed up to your eyes, you don’t have to remove sunglasses or adjust hats. One less thing to worry about means extra playing time.
Unfortunately, the Switch Tour features the same Red Dot Aiming System that the other pistol-shaped devices use. Although it’s very attractive, the option to be able to toggle between the red dot and the crosshairs of conventional rangefinders would be extremely convenient.
- Silent, Vibrate, Audio flag-lock confirmation settings
- Red Dot Aiming System with Zero-In Alignment System
- Customizable measuring settings available: Quickshot or Red Hot Technology
- Laser Link’s well-known and popular pistol-shaped design
- Compact, lightweight, and comfortable design
Our Verdict on the Switch Tour
To ping up the strokes, the Laser Link Switch Tour rangefinder is the perfect combination of the best features Laser Link has to give. You can switch between either technologies to get the best of both worlds. There’s nothing to complain about when it comes to performance, although, the battery door may unexpectedly come open every now and then.
But, if the pistol shape isn’t quite to your fancy, you might want to check out the Bushnell Tour V4 with Jolt technology. You still get the confirmation setting, 1000 yard range, and even a posi thread battery door.
However, there’s no denying that the pistol-shaped design looks rad when on the course. You won’t find that anywhere else than with Laser Link!
