TecTecTec VPro500S Laser Rangefinder Review
Wallet Friendly Laser Rangefinders
By David Theoret
It's not often you find a company that offer a money back guarantee if you don't absolutely love their product, but that is exactly what TecTecTec claims about their new VPRO500S laser rangefinder.
In case you're not familiar with them - and most golfers probably aren't - TecTecTec has been a pioneer in affordable and technologically advanced laser rangefinders since 2014. The company is headquartered in France with representation in Houston, Texas and Bali. Director Renan Lore, an industrial engineer by trade, has a strong passion for quality and has always put the thoughts of the customer first. That's why TecTecTec provides world-class customer service as well as offering products directly to consumers online. This approach and philosophy gives TecTecTec the ability to offer feature packed equipment at the most competitive prices on the market.
TecTecTec has quickly become one of the leading rangefinder vendors online, and their flagship product, the VPRO500, received Amazon's bestseller status in 2016 and 2017 as well as a 4.5-star rating from thousands of buyers worldwide.
The VPRO500S takes the VPRO500 to a new level with the addition of a slope feature. Their patent pending PinSlope technology allows for slope compensation which calculates the elevation-adjusted distance (uphill or downhill) to the target. This feature can be turned on or off, making it perfectly legal for USGA tournaments.
The VPRO500S features three separate modes. Pinseeker mode allows you to find accurate distances of overlapping targets, while First Target Priority mode displays the distance of the closest target. This makes it particularly useful when measuring the distance to the pin when there are woods in the background. Scan mode is particularly useful when trying to determine the distance to hazards.
One look through the premium, ultra-clear, multilayered optical lens on the VPRO500S and you'll see why this gadget can take your golf game to the next level. The 6x magnification and diopter adjustment guarantees a clear view. Whether you're nearsighted or farsighted, the diopter adjustment will always provide a clear view which can only help your golf game! The 6x magnification also lets you get up-close and personal with objects that are about 200 yards away, such as the group in front of you.
Perhaps the one feature that sets it apart from other rangefinders on the market is something called Auto Target Acquisition. This technology enables the VPRO500S to tell the difference between the flag and other objects behind it by eliminating the signals stemming from massive objects such as trees and buildings.
There are several other outstanding features that make the VPRO500S a tremendous value. For one thing, it's waterproof, and the shock-resistant case safeguards your rangefinder against impact and poor weather. You can use it in inclement weather without the fear of ruining it. It's extremely lightweight, weighing at less at around half a pound; it's also very portable. With single button operation, it's very user-friendly and easy to use. There's also an auto shut off feature that helps to ensure it does not use power when you do not need it. The VPRO500S measures up to 540 yards within +/- 1 yard, and its accuracy is amazing.
The VPRO500S golf rangefinder comes fully equipped with a premium case, CR2 battery, wrist strap, microfiber cleaning cloth and a quick start guide for easy setup. And now for the best part, the VPRO500S with slope adjustment will only set you back $179.00, making it the least expensive rangefinder with comparable features. There's a two-year total warranty and, if you're not happy with your new unit, you can return the product within 30 days for a full refund. TecTecTec also offers the best customer service in the industry and they are available 24/7.

David Theoret has been in the golf and golf travel industry for over 10 years, primarily selling online advertising. For the past seven years, he has also been a golf writer, reviewing golf courses, resorts, destinations, equipment, golf apparel, and training aids - the latter of which never seems to help. David's articles and reviews have been posted on many golf travel and equipment websites.
Growing up in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, it was naturally assumed he would play hockey. Beginning at the age of 3 and continuing into his late 30's, he did just that. However, after one too many pucks to the head, he realized that golf was a lot easier on the body (whoever said hockey players were slow) and took the game up.
After moving to Florida and accepting a position with TravelGolf Media (now part of GolfNow) his love for the game grew exponentially. Most Saturdays you will find him on a course somewhere in Florida or on the practice range reinforcing his bad habits. David plays to a 10 handicap - unless there is money involved in which case it goes considerably higher. He currently resides in Lakeland, FL with his wife Belinda and their two "kids", Madyson and Molly.
