If you are a golfer, you know how important it is to know as much as you can about the course that you are playing and each hole that you are playing on, so that you can plan the best shot possible. The distance that you have to the hole determines what club to use and how much power you need to put into your swing to get the ball exactly where you need it.

Today we are going to be taking a look is the Breaking 80 Rangefinder review, to give you a breakdown of some of its key features and benefits of using it out on the course.
Breaking 80 Rangefinder Features
6 x Magnification Eyepiece
One of the first features that we noticed with this rangefinder is that it has a 6x magnification eyepiece. Having 6x magnification allows you to get a detailed view of the course at exactly where you want to hit the ball. This is super valuable in assessing the break of where you want to place the ball, how fast or slow the surface is going to be, and if you are going to have any bounce or give on your landing.
Improved Lens Protection
If you are going to be keeping your rangefinder in your golf bag, you are going to want to make sure that you have a durable rangefinder that can withstand getting knocked around in your bag.
Some rangefinders can be really sensitive to impact, and may get break or get a cracked lens if it get tossed or jostled around in your golf bag. This rangefinder has improved lens protection, so that you don’t have to worry about breaking your lens or scratching it.
With any rangefinder, you want to make sure that you have a reliable one that can analyze the distance of just about any pin. The Breaking 80 Rangefinder has an effective distance of up to 800 yards, so that you can analyze the distance to just about any hole, which includes the longest of par 5’s. You will never have trouble analyzing the lie you have from your next shot ever again. It is going to be difficult to find any rangefinder that can analyze up to ½ a mile at this reasonable of a price.
Updated Rangefinder Software
They have definitely made some serious improvements to the most recent model of the Breaking 80, when compared to other similar models they have released in the past. They have updated their pin sensor software so that you can always find the pin with your targeting mechanism.
