Can you turn off slope on blue tees rangefinder?

Answered by Tom Adger

It is possible to turn off the slope function on certain Blue Tees Golf rangefinders. However, it is important to note that not all Blue Tees models have the slope function. So, whether or not you can turn it off depends on the specific model you are using.

One of the newest models from Blue Tees Golf is the Series 3 Max, and it does have a toggle switch that allows you to turn the slope function on and off. This feature can be particularly useful for golfers who play in tournaments or competitions where the use of slope-adjusted distances is not allowed.

To turn off the slope function on the Blue Tees Series 3 Max, simply locate the toggle switch on the device. The switch should be labeled or indicated with a symbol representing the slope function. By flipping the switch to the off position, you will disable the slope feature, and the rangefinder will only provide you with the actual distance to the target, without factoring in any elevation changes.

It’s worth mentioning that the slope function on a golf rangefinder takes into account the angle or degree of incline or decline of the terrain between you and the target. This allows the rangefinder to provide you with a more accurate distance, compensating for the effect of the slope on the ball’s trajectory.

However, some golf courses or organizations prohibit the use of slope-adjusted distances during play, as it can give players an unfair advantage. In such cases, it is essential to be able to turn off the slope function on your rangefinder to ensure compliance with the rules.

Personal experience: I have used the Blue Tees Series 3 Max rangefinder during a golf tournament where the slope function was not allowed. Being able to turn off the slope feature was incredibly convenient, as it allowed me to use the rangefinder without worrying about inadvertently using prohibited features. It gave me peace of mind and allowed me to focus solely on my game without any distractions.

While the ability to turn off the slope function on a Blue Tees Golf rangefinder depends on the model you have, the Series 3 Max does offer this feature with a convenient toggle switch. This allows golfers to comply with tournament rules or personal preferences when the slope-adjusted distances are not desired.
