Golfing or Hunting? OpticsPlanet.com has the perfect rangefinder for you! This forum is for exchanging information and ideas, and the discussion of everything rangefinder related.
Are you sure that there will be no upgrades to the new 500G SKU-8351 from the old 500G SKU-7431? Nikon's website now lists a range of 500yds to the pin. Thanks.
Can't always verify what changes Nikon makes on their products as they are typically vague about this. I will say, however, that there must be some changes to the 500G or they wouldn't have changed the product number. However, the changes they make are oftentimes small and insiginicant. Will keep you posted.

Would they change the product # simply because they are changing the pakaging? Or is it typically a change in the product itself?
Your website says you will not have the LaserCaddy 550G model 7431
available until May. Is that correct, or will you have the model 8351?
I was wondering as the previous person who posted, if there are any differences between the two model numbers of this Nikon device. I also wanted to know what experience you guys have had with it. Is it true that it only can range the flag from 160 yds away? This is a somewhat limited range for golfing purposes. Are there other devices in this price range with longer ranges to pin?
Thank you for any suggestions or commments.
I have ranged a flag at 300 yards. I have tried from a longer distance, but I have a hard time steady my hand.

Thank you for the good advice. I just recieved my Nikon Laser 500G the other day and took it out on the course. I have to say that the unit works better than expected. I ranged some flags well over 350 yards all the way into 12 yards.
