The Review

The GX-3i2 is a super-compact rangefinder with some very nice features like a 6x22mm setup, and bunch of different modes that can be very useful under various conditions. The unit, which is quite small and solidly constructed, comes with a very nice carry case for protection from you and the elements at all times. One of the modes that really caught my eye was the Fog/Rain mode. Though I did not test this rangefinder in this mode, I can see how this mode could very useful, especially since I see a fair amount of fog and misty rain in my area. My current rangefinder just does not cut it in these conditions, so this would be a really welcomed feature. Another mode that I felt was a nice touch was the Selectable Reticles, with 3 different options to choose from. I found that a certain reticle really helped me lock into my target after testing all of these options. The GX-3i2 was very easy to use, though I did have some issues locking on to a 296-yard flag with a strong backdrop. I kept locking onto the backdrop 50% of the time. Being such a super-compact unit, I found myself not as steady in locking down readings as I am with slightly larger units.

Who’s it for?

With its lightweight and compact size, this is really an excellent unit for walkers, especially those that carry, though players who ride will find this great as well. This rangefinder is an awesome choice for those that play in less than perfect weather conditions all of the time. Players with exceptionally steady hands will love this unit.

Final Take

If you have steady hands, this super-compact, well built unit is about as good as it gets. Some great features/modes, an excellent visual experience, and the brilliant red OLED display really helps lock in your targets super quickly.
