FIRST LOOK: COBALT Q-4 SLOPE RANGEFINDER
Last we heard from direct-to-consumer golf brand Cobalt; their Q-6 rangefinder had just pulled off an admirable dark-horse finish in our Best Golf Rangefinder testing. Now, the Wyoming-based company seeks to challenge the notion that a top-performing golf rangefinder must have a top-shelf price. Get more news about Golf Rangefinder,you can vist our website!
Introducing the Cobalt Q-4 Slope—the budget-friendly addition to Cobalt’s lineup of premium performance golf rangefinders.
Budget golf rangefinders often have to make compromises. This shortcoming can rear its head in many ways. For example, the lack of slope functionality can be detrimental to your game.
Luckily, the Cobalt Q-4 offers the same slope functionality as its big brother, the Q-6 Slope. Of course, the slope function can be turned on and off with the push of a button, making it completely legal for tournament use when required.
One look through the crystal-clear lens of the Cobalt Q-4 Slope and you’ll immediately notice the display. Depending on what you’re looking at, the display will automatically adapt by changing colors. The built-in light sensor reads ambient light and adjusts the display accordingly. It seamlessly switches from red to black and back, making it a breeze to see your numbers.
Haptic feedback is crucial to a top golf rangefinder. The surge vibration on the Cobalt notifies the user when the flag has been picked up, providing total confidence in the number (and shot) at hand. The Cobalt Q-4 Slope also features Cobalt’s PinSense technology.
The goal? Get rid of false readings by filtering out background objects and obstructions. The combination of the PinSense technology and the surge haptic vibration should leave no doubt as to how far away the flag is.
The budget-conscious Cobalt Q-4 Slope does everything the big names do. Along with its performance features, the Q-4 Slope features an IPX7 waterproof rating and a lifetime warranty. The six-times zoom is excellent and the total 1,300 yards of range (450-yard pin detection) is among the best.
For just $295, the Cobalt Q-4 Slope golf rangefinder is a solid option for someone on a budget but doesn’t want to compromise on premium performance.
How does the Q-4 Slope rangefinder stack up against the competition? We’ll wait until our 2024 rangefinder testing to find out. That said, if you’re itching to pick up this economically priced, feature-rich rangefinder, you can do so now.
