The ballfinder scout is basically a specialized digital camera which is trained to recognize a white ball so long as at least 3 dimples are visible. Just point it at the area you suspect your ball to be and it will home in on it like a radar.
Here’s what they have to say about the product:
Inside the SCOUTÃ¢â€žÂ¢ is a video-like camera. It can search up to 600 square feet in one second or almost 1/7 of an acre in 10 seconds! Each of over three million pixels is scanned in nanoseconds and analyzed pixel by pixel using our proprietary GLS golf ball locating system technology to look for the unique color signature found on any standard white golf ball. WITH AS LITTLE AS 1% – OR ABOUT THREE DIMPLES Ã¢â‚¬â€œ visible, SCOUTÃ¢â€žÂ¢ can find the ball and guide you to it.
We canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t promise you that SCOUTÃ¢â€žÂ¢ will find every ball. It wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t help you if a ball is in water or if it is totally covered. But if 1% of the ball is visible, SCOUTÃ¢â€žÂ¢ will find it even though your naked eye canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll find your ball faster, speed up the game and enhance your own and everyone elseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s enjoyment of the game.
