Review: TecTecTec VPRO DLX S Rangefinder
TecTecTec VPRO DLX S Rangefinder Review
The TecTecTec VPRO DLX S rangefinder is a simple yet effective rangefinder at an entry level price.
Initial Setup & Use
The TecTecTec VPRO DLX S is ready to use right out of the box, the only assembly necessary is loading the supplied battery. It only took a couple of minutes and I was shooting yardages. Switching between the VPRO DLX S’ three different scanning modes is made simple by press of the mode button located on top of the device. The operation of this compact rangefinder couldn’t easier; with minimal controls the VPRO DLX S finds distance and slope with the push of a button. The supplied quick start guide makes for easy setup.
Performance & Accuracy
TecTecTec’s website states that the VPRO DLX S is capable of a +/- 1 yard accuracy up to 1000 yards. I didn’t play golf holes longer than 560 yards using the VPRO DLX S so I will not comment on the 1000 yard statement. I did find the measurements, both distance and slope, to match the GPS and course markers. The waterproof laser golf rangefinder finds the correct distance to golf flags, trees, and hazards very quickly. The readout is not too basic but it is not crowed with hard to read and useless data. Looking through the ultra-clear optical lens, you get a complete picture of ‘the most important shot’ your next shot. TecTecTec’s patent pending PinSlope technology compensates for elevation changes, uphill or downhill, than adjusted distance to the target. Pinseeker mode measures overlapping targets by pick out the intended targets and not other objects behind it.
The VPRO DLX S is very lightweight at 0.41 lbs. and measures 4.1 x 2.8 x 1.6 inch making it very portable. The golf rangefinder comes with a shock-resistant case, CR2 battery, wrist strap, microfiber cleaning cloth. The case with its flashy, high visibility, yellow design helps protect the unit but does not look right with our red and black rangefinder. The case also has an external clip for mounting to a cart.
A laser rangefinder with slope for $229.99 is indeed a bargain. The VPRO DLX S lacks a lot of the bells and whistles you’d find on a more expensive brand but the affordable price and the two-year warranty will help take any worry about buying a lesser known brand.
The Bottom Line
For golfers looking for a rangefinder that includes a slope feature at an affordable price, I believe that TecTecTec and their VPRO DLX S will be just what you are looking for. TecTecTec also offers a number of other models that start at $149.99 as well as a hunting rangefinder.
