It is difficult for most golfers to choose between a GPS device and a Rangefinder. From a GPS device, you can have the mapping of a golf course as well as the positioning of pins, hazards, and every other detail. But as a golfer, you must have the experience of a poor touch screen of the GPS device you are using and it also takes some precious time to load up the map for you.
Literally, you are left at the hand of someone who has designed the course and loaded up the maps.
But with a rangefinder, you will have the liberty of playing at your will. You can have the accuracy of your shots, you will know the distance of the next pin, flag, or hole. Some also come with the feature of vibrating when it finds your target. So overall rangefinders have some advantages GPS devices don’t have.
The Leupold Pincaddie 2 still very new to the market and new reviews are yet to come. But we have reviewed it for you so that you can have an idea of this sporty looking rangefinder. Let’s get started !!
A compact, lightweight package hot off the grill with a sportive, red finish, the Leupold Pincaddie 2 series finder is. It is a licensed tournament with a magnification of 6X, multi-coated lenses, and it is fitted with the unique Laser Technology PinHunter2 from Leupold. It is probably the easiest-to-use laser we tested since it is stripped down to the required functions. Just attach the battery to lift your head, click the power button, and press again. It’s red and black with a 3.6′′ x 2.9′′ x 1.4′′ and 6.3 ounces, rendering it the shortest and the lightest Leupold.
Now, let’s discuss briefly the Leupold Pincaddie 2’s extraordinary features, specs, and all other things. This is going to be interesting, so buckle up !!

Let’s briefly describe its features now. We’ll explain them in depth below.
- Long-lasting battery life of 30,000 hours
- Pinhunter Technology for zeroing into the flag
- Small, compact, and ergonomic design
- Most affordable unit from the Leupold line
These are the features you get to use while you play a match of golf. Very important for you to have a perfect game.
Now let’s elaborately describe all the key features so that you can have the exact idea.
The monitor is an LCD, it is made not of aluminum but of plastic, and only one reticle is supported. The Pincaddie 2 is similarly suited with the Pincaddie 2 LCD / black display. Although LCD screens are much more prevalent at the entrance level and also at mid-range, black monitors with diverse surroundings, changing weather conditions and illumination can be more difficult to see. The Pincaddie 2 will reach 800 yards, the Pincaddie 2 only hits reflective destinations of 650 yards and the flag is just 300 yards. Does delivers all the basic features of an entry-level rangefinder that you would expect.
When it came to weather resistance, the original Pincaddie rangefinder was extremely limited with only rainproof qualities. The new rangefinder is a step up and is fully water-resistant. Holding down the power button places the laser in scan mode, giving the distance to the target quickly while scanning the whole area. You can switch between modes easily. The primary purpose of a rangefinder is to be used quickly and the small size and reliability of Pincaddie 2 is very strong. It scans very quickly. You just have to push the scan button while scanning and alerts you with vibration and show it on the display.
For an entry-level rangefinder, a 6x magnification is very unpredictable. For its multi-layered lens, it is able to provide high-resolution images. So you are able to see a very clear view. You can find other rangefinders with more measurement modes. But the more the better is not always a good option. You may confuse yourself with which one you have to use. Pincaddie 2 comes with two measuring methods, (meters/yards) and (distance/speed). You will find the measuring system better even if the weather is gloomy or dark.
You can charge your rangefinder with any electronic device that has a USB port. It charges very quickly. It will help you to have a30,000 hours of charge when fully charged. You will have a very firm grip on the rangefinder for its ergonomic grip design.
If you have reached this point you are already aware of Leupold Pincaddie 2’s specification and feature details. Now, let’s briefly describe the Pros and Cons.
- PRICE, of the rangefinder, is very reasonable.
- PinHunter Technology helps you very much to find your target with great accuracy.
- Long-lasting battery life,up to 30,000 hours of battery life in a single charge.
- Compactness is the best feature as our opinion as a rangefinder should be.
- Easy to use. To help you to play your game at your best.

As an entry-level rangefinder, it is featured with a lot of technical advantages. But yet it has many updates to come to help you at its fullest.
