Mike Phippen of Laser Technology recalls creating the first recreational rangefinder.
LTI partnered with Bushnell Optics in 1994 to create the first low-cost recreational rangefinder for golfing and hunting. We not only developed the technology that makes the distance measurements possible, but we also helped design the products themselves. Today, Bushnell is the most popular recreational rangefinder in the world, and LTI is still active in developing their next generation of products.
First Generation Criterion
This relationship, key to reducing the size and weight of both Traffic Safety and Professional Measurement line of instruments, allowed us to reduce costs proportionately. The old units weighed nearly five pounds but were indestructible!
When compared to today’s TruSpeed S series as well as the TruPulse series weighing in at a pound, LTI once again raised the bar. We continue to leave the competition behind as it’s “Quality through Innovation and Dedication” with LTI.
