Guidelines for Laser Optics v.I 

Package includes:

  • High power green laser with continuous On/Off button
  • Mounted to 3-legged laser platform. Laser is calibrated to project a point perpendicular to the base of the platform. Front leg is adjustable to control the vertical position of the laser point.
  • 16340 700mAh 3.7v rechargeable lithium battery
  • Target Backboard

My general steps to assess aim on a straight putt are…

  • Select a straight putt at a length of 8-10 feet. I use the Perfect Putter to select the straight putt. I want to ensure there nothing that might influence a misalignment.
  • I then instruct my student to step through their normal routine to execute a putt. If they normally use a line on the ball, have them use the line, etc. It is important to aim with the ball in front of the face, it can affect aim.
  • When golfer is set at address, ready to stroke, and acknowledge that they are aligned to the hole, I secure the putter with my left hand, move the ball, square the laser base plate to the putter face, and project the light.
  • Prior to assessing aim, I remove the front leveler leg on the base plate. With the base plate squared against the putter face, and back legs secured on the ground, simply tilt the front end up/down and the laser point will trace the aim path on the surface of the green. Years ago, I realized that an above ground Target Backboard can affect the perception of hole, and thus aim in some folks. Therefore, I don’t chance it and I no longer use the Target Backboard.
  • I typically repeat the assessment process at least three times to establish consistency. Normally, if someone aims left, they consistently aim left, and vice versa. I have my student close their eyes on each attempt. I do not want them to see the results until I have established a trend. If you allow them to look, they of course will attempt to improve their misalignment on each following attempt.
  • I also observe their body and eye-line alignment. Typically, if someone aims left, their body and eye-line is aligned left, and vice versa.
  • Advanced – repeat the same process for breaking putts. Have your player identify their aim point, whether a spot located in their perceived path, or a linear spot near the hole (example, two inches left of hole).

Re-calibration – Occasionally, the accuracy of the laser may be altered due to a strong jarring, such as dropping it laser side down on concrete. The laser can easily be re-calibrated. First, remove the lens cap and check to see if the brass leader is loose. If so, there are two parts that can be tightened. First, unscrew the aluminum base and remove it from the barrel. Next, tighten the bottom aluminum housing. Re-insert and tighten the laser into the barrel. If the laser is still inaccurate, using the four #10 set screws on the sides of the laser housing. To move the laser to the left, unscrew the front left side set screw ¼ turn and tighten the front right side set screw ¼ turn. Repeat until you achieve accuracy. I use a 4’ builders T-square. Square the T to a wall, square the laser against the same surface and run the laser up and down the edge of the 4’ ruler. Very easy and very accurate.

Guidelines for Laser Optics v.II 

Package includes:

  • High power green laser with On/Off power button
  • Mounted to 3-legged laser platform. Laser is calibrated to project a point perpendicular to the base of the platform. Front leg is adjustable to control the vertical position of the laser point.
  • 1 – Mini Pipe Tripod
  • 1 – 16340 700mAh 3.7v rechargeable lithium battery (+1-2 hour working life)
  • 1 – Wireless ON/OFF remote control with CR2025 3.0v lithium battery

Important Note: The laser was designed to use a CR123A 3.0v battery. However, we discovered that a rechargeable 16340 3.7v battery is preferred. In most cases, the extra .7v will operate the laser at optimum brightness level. Charge life is typically 1/3 or less that of non-rechargeable batteries. We have equipped your laser with a 16340 700mAh 3.7v battery that has tested a charge life of +1-2 hours. The battery included with your laser may not be charged to its fullest. If you do not have a lithium battery charger, we suggest you check at and search the lithium battery chargers.

Usage tips:

  • Power Button – Push once and the light will project + wireless remote will operate OFF/ON. Push Power button again and system is OFF.
  • To remove battery, unscrew the Receiver Cap at the rear of the laser tube. Positive end of battery should be directed outward. Make sure Receiver Cap it tight.
  • Remove the plastic tab from the Wireless Remote. For best results, point Remote directly at Receiver.
  • The laser base can be easily attached to any tripod (see picture).
  • The front lens cap rotates, allowing you to adjust the vertical position of the line. For example, if you set the laser on a slope, you can adjust the lens cap to compensate for the tilt. You can also affect the profile characteristic of the line. Use the specifications sticker as a guide to set calibration.
  • The front lens cap can be removed entirely and the laser will project a point. With the front cap removed, the LO v.II can assess putter aim similar to LO v.I. See directions above.
  • With the front lens cap attached, you can project start lines, entry lines, and laser “chalk line”.
  • The wireless remote should operate effectively from +6-8 feet when pointed directly at back of laser. The wireless receiver is located on the back end cap.
  • Strategically turn laser ON/OFF to hone and assess visualization skills.
  • Ideal conditions are early morning, late afternoon, overcast skies, and shadows. I personally prefer projecting shorter start lines or cup entry lines and allow the imagination to visualize the complete path. Shorter lines 3-4’ can be seen in brighter sun conditions.See demonstration videos on my website at

A few helpful Laser tips about lasers...

  • If the laser discontinues working, first ensure battery cap is tightened to the extreme. Recharge the 16340 3.7v battery. To remove battery, simply unscrew the button end of the laser barrel. Positive end points outward.  
  • If the remote becomes weak or discontinues working, replace the CR2025 3.0v remote battery. To replace remote battery, simply undo latch (located on back end near wrist band) and slide out.
  • CR123a 3.0v is a common battery and can be found in most retail stores that carry batteries. The 16340 3.7v is not as common, but can be found at battery specialty stores or online. An excellent online U.S. supply source is
  • NEVER point a laser pointer of any power at anybody. Do not point at aircraft.
  • Avoid "mirror like" (specular) targets and NEVER - NEVER stare into a pointer! Also, NEVER view a laser beam using an optical instrument, such as binoculars, microscope, etc. 
  • These laser pointers are not toys and should not be used by juveniles. 
  • One should NEVER use a laser pointer above 5mW. The green laser incorporated in LASER OPTICS v.II is no greater than 5mW.
