I have both, but i will use my skycaddie more because it is quick to just glance down at, and if you have a blind shot you can still have a distance instead of having to walk of a yardage from a nearby sprinkler. Also my laser is not legal for tournament play, I use a Bushnell V2 slope edition. I use it to map courses and adjust for slope on ranges while practicing. No the most practical but the intent is to correct set up for Trackman combines since trackman yardages are given as carry flat distances. My range is not flat is its very downhill and then around 200 yards goes back up hill.
