Blue Tees Rangefinder Review: As Good As They Say?
I have reviewed the Blue Tees Golf Series 3 Max Rangefinder in this article. In my search for a high-quality but affordable rangefinder, I came across Blue Tees, a brand that has premium-quality rangefinders at very reasonable prices.
So, read on to know everything about the Blue Tees Rangefinder.
As an avid golfer, I can tell you that a rangefinder is a vital part of playing the game today.
A rangefinder can be very useful in pinpointing the distance accurately and consistently to choose the best club to hit with.
The best thing about rangefinders is that they are a valuable asset on the course. They are also very versatile and can be used anywhere.
The thing about rangefinders is that you can either:
- Find inexpensive models which are cheap in terms of quality and performance.
- Or find expensive models, costing around $500 or more.
This is where the Blue Tees Rangefinder comes in.
About Blue Tees Golf
Started by a group of four golf enthusiasts, also friends, Blue Tees was formed to bring premium quality golf rangefinders at affordable prices to golfers on a tight budget.
The idea of this began when the four golfers bought inexpensive rangefinders on Amazon, all of which broke in a few weeks.
This led them to ponder why finding a well-designed, high-quality, and long-lasting rangefinder without creating a hole in the pocket was difficult.
And so, Blue Tees Golf was born in 2015.
The company began producing premium-quality rangefinders and other golf products using its expertise in industrial design.
They designed the Blue Tees rangefinder in-house, eliminating complex operations, and directly selling to consumers.
Blue Tees started creating top-quality and high-performance products at very affordable prices.
The Blue Tees product line rangefinders include:
All the Blue Tee products come with a 2-year manufacturer warranty and a 60-day money-back satisfaction guarantee.
I have given you an in-depth lowdown on Blue Tee’s Series 3 Max Rangefinder in this article.
