Stick It Rangefinder Case

Anyone have any experience with this?? [url="http://www.monumentgolfer.com Seems"]http://www.monumentgolfer.com[/url] seems pretty cool, just don't know if I would trust it my course is pretty bumpy. Wanted to see if anyone has any reviews of this.

    Played with another golfer who had it. Worked well. Magnets are strong, but maybe too strong. I ended up getting one for my Nikon Coolshot 20 rangefinder but my rangefinder wouldn't turn on when I had the stick it strap on. When I took the stick it strap off, the rangefinder worked perfectly fine. I figured the magnets were too close to the battery casing.

    My nephew has one of these; I can assure you that those magnets ain't coming off the golf cart unless you hit a "bump" that would break kill you anyway, and maybe not even then!



    I thought it was a pretty cool idea, until he left his rangefinder attached to his golf cart and we had to ride 25 miles each way the next day to retrieve it. Between the fact that it isn't foolproof, that I walk most of my rounds, and adding bulk to the device, I took a pass. But NOT because of worries about the magnets!

    I have one and love it. Never have an issue with it coming off and you will not leave it in the cup holder after the round like have done a couple of times before i got this.

    I've had one for a while now. It's a good product. I have a smaller leupold and it works great for me. I turned a good bit of people onto them just by them seeing it in action during a round.

    Great product, won't bump off. All four in my group using them now. (Like we need 4 rangefinders out.) Solution for forgetting it on the cart? I put my car keys in rangefinder case. Car keys come out to drive home, rangefinder goes in case. Can't leave the course without it.

    I use one. They are great. It is not falling off your cart or if you walk your club heads. I have used it both ways and it is really good.

    I love this idea, haven't seen it previously.



    Anyone have experience with these on a push cart? My Clic gear cart is round tube up near the handle area, doesn't seem that the magnets would hold well against rounded tube edge of a push cart.

    I had one and attached it to the cart....typical cart path, not very well maintained a couple bumps but nothing huge, 4 holes later go to use it and nada...broken. Took it to Bushnell ad the laser was out of whack. Worked perfectly up until then. Who knows, bad luck or the extra force from the bumps with it not being in the bag/scope pocket. Threw it away after that.

    No experience with push carts but it does not work on a Golfboard (which are a great option at my home course) as all surfaces are aluminum or ABS. Love the case and works great on golf carts. It absolutely stays put. The company now has a towel that attaches magnetically as well (saw it first time at PGA Show) and I have been using it as well Also a great little item. I have forgotten to put my rangefinder in my bag at the end of the round but my partner or cart person at the course noticed it and reminded me as we were packing up after the round. I now put it back in my bag right after hitting my approach shot on 18 so it is safely tucked away before hitting the cart return area. Highly recommend it!!

    These things are fantastic. Such a simple idea, I hope whoever came up with it makes a billion dollars.

    The magnets used to be stronger. Too strong actually, because it eventually ripped the stitching or the material around it and one of the magnets popped out.



    I contacted the company to see about a replacement, and they actually took my address and said they would be sending it but they never did.



    I gave up on them and bought a new one anyway, and the magnets they are using now are much less strong. You have to make sure both magnets are squarely on the metal, but it is still a good product.

    A different take with magnets is the GPS quick clip. I love mine and won't fall off. I did get one with bigger magnets for my Bushnell x7 as it is heavy

    Another DIY alternative- bought a couple rubberized 10lbs neodymium magnets from KJmagnetics for a few dollars. Epoxied on magnet to the side of my rangefinder and added a couple wraps of electrical tape for extra durability. Used the other magnets on my speaker again with a few wraps for additional security. These hold incredibly well on the cart front pillars at speed and over rough terrain. Nice and streamlined too as the magnets are only a couple millimeters in thickness.

    Another option is from Frogger:

    https://www.froggergolf.com/products/range-finder-latch-it/

    The "base" straps onto a cart pillar, or a strut on a trolley. The magnetic "dongle" and socket system is really secure, never had a problem on my very hilly and bumpy golf course.

    Dave, do you have the frogger latch-it? I was thinking about ordering it. It looks nicer than the monument and is cheaper as well.

    I have this and really like it. Maybe not as simple as the Stick It rangefinder, but not that much of a pain to use. It also locks in place if you turn the part that attaches to the cart, so someone can't just grab it and go if you leave it in the cart while running inside at the turn. It takes a little effort to unlock it and go.

    I was given 4 different LatchIt devices at an event I attended. They all work really well. The rangefinder thing is amazingly effective, even over the bumpiest places I've been. I was also given a similar one for a cell phone that just don't use, and two more for a club brush and towel. On those the base unit clamps to the top rim of your golf bag, or anyplace similar. On those, the dongle will pull itself into the socket, you don't even have to line it up, just get it close. All in all, its a really effective system.

    dude i bought one of these and its amazing, i stick it to the cart and haul assit never even budges unless you pull on it. if its cart path only and i take a couple clubs across the fairway, i can stick it on the iron and walk over there and it doesnt fall off. it really is awesome.
  • Jeremy0510Jeremy0510 Members Posts: 158 ✭✭
    I ordered the stick it and received it today. I haven't had it on a cart yet but playing with around the house, it feels like a solid product. It's gonna help me out for sure.
  • Jeremy0510Jeremy0510 Members Posts: 158 ✭✭
    I'm glad for finding this little thing. I've been using it the last couple rounds and it works great. You'd have to really try to get it to fall off. I hope it holds up now.

    I have posted this before here in the forums but i had a Bushnell 1600, the magnets wouldnt/couldn’t hold the weight. It fell and broke. I emailed stick it and they basically tested and agreed and were upgrading that XL. Aside from that these are awesome. I eventually got a smaller rangefinder anyway too. Stickit did send me like five stickits for my trouble.



    I’d suggest a brighter color, it makes them easier to remember. I forgot mine one time and luckily it was still on the cart i used next day.

    I got it for my NIkon Coolshot 80i VR and it did not fit very well. Caddy Buddy makes a laser rangefinder pouch that you clamp on the cart and works really well. Plus it folds up so you can carry it in your bag.

    For people who have had them fall off, be sure to place the laser on the metal support which is facing you. I played with a buddy who was putting it on the side (the right side of it since he was passenger) and it flopped all over the place.



    Also be sure the magnets are centered. Need to be a little careful if those supports are the 5/8" variety rather than the big 1" square tubes.



    for the people whose nikon doesn't work, perhaps rotate the laser 180 degrees in the unit so the magnets are on the other side of it.
