Features of TecTec VPRO500
A rangefinder is nothing without quality features. What would be some of the interesting features of this unit? Let’s find out.
First of all, let’s start with the single most important feature on any rangefinder: range! This is the make or break of any rangefinder, and the TecTecTec VPRO500 will probably not disappoint you.
The TecTecTec VPRO500 rangefinder can measure and up to 540 yards with continuous scan mode. Not the highest coverage in the world, but we still think this coverage is more than good enough for most golfers on the course. And apart from the yardage, you will be furthermore happy to know that the TecTecTec VPRO500 won’t having you waiting. It produces more or less instant readings, and accuracy? Let’s get to the right now.. .
Accuracy and Technology
Accuracy is a huge factor when it come to rangefinder, and more importantly, your game. And the TecTecTec VPRO500 does not lack behind on this either.
Thanks to Pinsensor Technology, not only do you get fast readings, you furthermore get super accurate reading up to +/- 1 meter and over 5000 actuations! And to add to all these, the technology also enhances the rangefinder’s capability to dodge obstacles. In other words, it measures just as accurately through overlapping distractions. It is therefore very unlikely that you will miss a flag or hazard.
Ironically enough, there are a few complaints and accusations against the TecTecTec VPRO500’s very feature. We have in fact come across many users, rather unhappy, who had a mouthful to say about its accuracy. Many users have experience a give or take of 30 yards while other said that the reading couldn’t get past a darn tree. 2 sides of every products so you may want to watch out for this.. . .

View and Vision
Alright now, let’s get to the lenses and viewing clarity on this thing now.
The TecTecTec VPRO500 rangefinder uses premium quality, ultra clear, multilayered optics. There are several, easy to view, keys, which not only make reading easier, but furthermore, makes the finder itself very versatile. In addition to this, the one feature that’s going to impress a lot of users is that you can read the yardage in both meters and yards.
One annoying detail however is that you will need very steady hands to pull of accurate reading from this guy. Shaky hands? Hmmm.. .
The TecTecTec VPRO500 rangefinder is very compact and lightweight. Typical of most golf rangefinders. It measures 104 x 72 x 41 mm while weighing in at just 185 g. Not bad at all.
However, what makes the TecTecTec VPRO500 truly favorite is its carrying bag. You get a strong, sturdy carrying bag to store it in. Won’t lose and won’t get damamged.
Speaking of which, a bummer is that the TecTecTec VPRO500 has a tendency to fog up inside the housing. The cloudy view may reduce after a while but it is still a problem.
Nevertheless, the TecTecTec VPRO500 is overall still very durable. Use it well, and it just may last you for years to come.
