Bro ECH,

May I ask if the retail price of the Nikon coolshot is at SGD468, will the retailer give discount if we negotiate hard enough?

Actually I paid quite a bit of attention to a few negative user feedback on Nikon range finders, seems like QC is not really that good and there are a few lemons out of the production line.

May be wiser to buy from local retailer with local tech support & warranty..... still thinking



It was roughly $370 last December at Alan Photo Sim Lim. There is a short thread here: http://www.golfrepublic.org/t21367-nikon-coolshot-rangefinder.

Thanks Bro EastCoastHack, pasting some of the useful Nikon links here for everyone's benefit. Looks like we can consider the Prostaff 7, Coolshot and Coolshot AS(slope) as well Very Happy

Anyone going to Sim Lim Square these few days? Can help check out pricing at Alan Photo?

try the nikon on spots under shade versus the bushnell. bushnell pedigree is from a military and hunting background. the range finder works even in total darkness.

if you guys are interested in bushnell, you can work out the nos and i can get event price if the order is over 10 pcs with full warranty.

hope it helps........DGman

The boss has spoken. Frankly if the price locally is not ridiculously more than Amazon, I am inclined to get it locally and not have to worry about warranty issues. Do we have 10 interested parties? Nothing firm yet, just gathering interest.

Bro greenteaz, current model is V3 so I am assuming either V3 or V3 slope? V2 is 2009 model...

Dun mind Bro IMrog, can change the title of this thread so that more GRians can see we are trying to drum up enough numbers to qualify for event price of the V3?

many thanks.

cheers.

Guys, before you splurge on the V3, I'd suggest trying it out first. I have the V2 Slope which I love. But I found the V3 to be a bit tricky in that the button was much stiffer and more difficult to press (it's part of the design). Make sure you're confortable before spending.

Thanks bro Technospaz, will definitely remember this good tip.

Just trying to gather interest at the moment. Who knows, maybe the local distributor has alot of V2 stock to lelong and we get a TK deal Cheers Jump

I'm sure there will be people keen to get a V2 with a BRAND NEW V3 pouch instead of a old V2 pouch.
