What's new? How much does it cost? And how does it perform? Hannah Screen brings you the low down on Motocaddy's Pro 3000 laser

Motocaddy, the popular electric trolley brand, is a newcomer when it comes to lasers and range finders. After releasing their first laser just two years ago and seeing some good feedback, I wanted to try the Motocaddy Pro 3000 for myself. Let’s see how it got on…

Motocaddy Pro 3000 laser rangefinder review: First Impressions

The Motocaddy Pro 3000 is a compact and sleek laser coming in a classic black colourway with silver details. I liked the black hard case it came with that has a clip which attaches to your bag for security and easy access.

Motocaddy Pro 3000 laser rangefinder review: NGC Verdict

I was excited to try this laser as Motocaddy is a well-known brand that has always created good products. Sitting on the more expensive side I had high expectations for high quality.

Any laser with a slope setting is a bonus when buying this piece of equipment. Especially if you are travelling to lots of new courses with undulations. I liked the display of the slope under the main yardage and it was easy to switch on and off which is useful when playing in competitions.

The overall display when looking at the yardage was clear and precise due to 7x magnification. There was a good contrast between the numbers and background so they were visible, however, the yardage was not so easy to get.

The aim point of the laser is a very small cross when looking through the display screen which makes it difficult to align accurately with the target. This meant the accuracy of distance collection was difficult.

I found the laser was picking up background objects and I had to press the measurement button multiple times until I got the correct yardage. However, when I did hit the correct number pinlock technology gave a little buzz vibration to let me know it had the number which is helpful.

The laser is priced at £250 which is not the most expensive on the market but still a large investment. I would have liked a bit more ease of use in terms of pin seeking with this product but I was pleased with the quality of the device, the slope options and the pulse setting.
