Amongst all golf rangefineders, Nikon Aculon rangefinder is a prime pick. Now, there’s reason behind that. It is one of the finest picks out there and today, we will be reviewing this Nikon Aculon rangefinder.
Now, we have reviewed rangefinders in the past. Some of them were great, some were alright and some were terrible. Where does Nikon Aculon stand in the mix? We would say, it is one of the top ones and there’s lots of proof to back this up.
If saving battery life and energy is something that you are worried about, this Nikon Aculon rangefinder will definitely solve this issue for you. The unit is so good that it automatically turns off in every 8 seconds while you are not using it. That saves a ton of battery power. Stuff like this do not make it to the news but it should.
Let’s talk about distance as it is probably the biggest feature to think about while you are buying a rangefinder. From 6 yards to 55o yards, this rangefinder covers it all and the cover is decent.
Now I should also tell you that there are better options out there when it comes to range but if I think about the price that Nikon Aculon comes in and then compare it with the features, it still seems worth it.
Let’s talk about the camera too. The 20 mm lense is a power house and the 6X magnification also helps. However, I would say that the camera could be improved in this rangefinder. I mean, we have all seen better cameras out there in rangefinders and sometimes, it seems like Nikon compromised a lot to keep the price within range.
The best thing that I liked about this rangefinder is the compact size. I hate it when there’s a huge rangefinder that I have to carry around without any proper reason and my hand is shaking after a few minutes.
That is not going to happen with this rangefinder as this is very compact and lightweight in nature. This is a beginner friendly version which is another thing I like. Now, I am not a new golfer as I have been in the scene for a few years now.
However, I still like the beginner friendly options as they are simply much more easier to deal with than the bigger and complex ones. The last thing I want to do is to go for a rangefinder that requires one hour of adjustment in a golf field. We all hate it and the people we are playing with will hate the experience too.
There’s no reason for us to put them through this.
Overall, this is a decent rangefinder though there are better options. The company, Nikon definitely adds to the brand value as this is a premium brand. However, the rangefinder would be ordinary.
I would say go for it if you have budget limitations, otherwise, you should focus on some better options.
