Shot Scope Pro L2 Laser Rangefinder

The new Shot Scope Pro L2 laser rangefinder is a box-checker.

As in, it checks a lot of boxes.

Are you looking for a high-performing laser? Check.

How about a high-performing laser that acquires the target quickly and vibrates once you do? Check.

How about a high-performing laser that acquires the target quickly, vibrates once you do and has a slope function you can turn off for tournament play? Yep, another check.

And what about a high-performing laser that acquires the target quickly, vibrates, has slope and comes in a small package with a strong, built-in magnet to hang on your cart? Why, yes, friends! We can check that one, too.

And how about all that for less than $200? 

Check … but wait …

How about less than $150?

I believe we’d call that checkmate.

“Our mission remains to provide the best in performance and accuracy at an affordable price point,” says Shot Scope CEO David Hunter. “We believe the Pro L2 meets that objective.”

That’s hard to argue with.

Scotland-based Shot Scope made its bones by developing a wrist-mounted shot-tracking system in 2016. That bulky wristband has gone through several evolutions, culminating with last month’s launch of the X5 GPS watch and shot tracking system. In between, Shot Scope has added a basic GPS watch (no shot tracking) and laser rangefinders.

The new Shot Scope Pro L2 laser is a smaller, leaner version of the company’s Pro LX model and includes a magnet so you can hang it on the frame of a golf cart. There are lots of other places to keep your laser but Shot Scope tells us that it’s something people have been asking for.

And did we mention it’s (technically) under $150?

Feature Heavy

You can find cheap rangefinders and you can find expensive rangefinders. And then there are really good rangefinders at a really good price. Those, however, are harder to find than you might think.

Our own testing has found the $180 to $200 range is where price, features, performance and quality intersect. Go much cheaper than that and you’re probably sacrificing features, performance and/or quality.

At 150 bucks, the Shot Scope Pro L2 might just force us to reevaluate that conclusion. And it has the features you’d expect from a rangefinder twice as expensive. Rapid-Fire Technology helps you lock on the target quickly and Target-Lock Vibration lets you know. And Advanced Slope Technology is one of those features that once you have it in a rangefinder, you never want to go back.

To up the ante even more, the Shot Scope Pro L2 features 6X magnification and a 700-yard target range. And Shot Scope has rightfully earned a reputation for its sharp display and easy-to-read graphics.

And it also has a waterproof case and, lest we forget, that magnet.

Where Are The Differences?

There’s bound to be some performance drop-off between the Pro L2 and higher-priced models from Shot Scope and others. It’ll most likely be in speed but those differences are usually measured in half-seconds. At that point, it’s up to you whether 2.5 seconds instead of 1.5 seconds is a tolerable wait when measuring distances. Higher-priced models are also bound to have a greater distance range, often up to 900 yards versus the 700 yards with the Pro L2.

How much that 200 yards matters on a golf course is debatable.

Additionally, higher-priced models might have up to 7X magnification. Again, how much that extra 1X actually matters on the course is an open question.

We’re in the middle of testing for our 2023 Rangefinder Buyer’s Guide, so we’ll soon see how the Shot Scope Pro L2 stacks up across the board. But early returns do suggest that it appears to be meeting Hunter’s objective and is a very solid budget option.

The  ShotScope Pro L2 rangefinder is one of the better values on the market.

Shot Scope Pro L2: Price and Availability

As mentioned, the Shot Scope Pro L2 laser rangefinder features slope technology that can be disabled when you need a rangefinder that conforms to the rules of a competition. It also includes Target-Lock Vibration and Rapid-Fire Technology to find your target quickly and let you know when you do. The Pro L2 has a 700-yard range and Shot Scope says it’s accurate at that distance to within a yard.

It comes in black with blue accents or black with gray accents.

And it sells for $149.99 (which is technically under $150).

      Lots to like, not the least of which is the very attractive price point. It is accurate, although it will pick up background objects occasionally. My one issue is that the view with glasses on is quite narrow and requires careful positioning. It seems to be designed for those without glasses. But it is very crisp and clear.

      Shot Scope finally did what I’ve been waiting years for. They released a high-quality rangefinder at a great price with all the features I want. Sold.
      Plus it’ll go with the H4 I already have.
