Bosch quietly came out with a new 35′ laser distance measuring tool, GLM 10.
We’ve seen several compact and no-frills laser distance measuring tools, starting with the Bosch GLM 15 and its 50′ measurement range. It has dropped to the $30 price point in the past, notably during holiday shopping seasons.
The newest compact and pocketable laser distance measurement tool, taking the place of the GLM 15 at its original $50 price point, is the GLM 20, with a 65′ measurement range.
Bosch seems to have designed the GLM 10 around the magical $30 price, but to do so they dropped the range down to 35 feet.
With $30 being a very homeowner-friendly price, and a 35 foot range satisfying a large majority of users and potential users, I’ve got nothing but optimism for the new GLM 10.
If the GLM 15 hit the $30 price point during peak holiday seasons, maybe we’ll even see a dip in price for this new GLM 10, although I wouldn’t bet that this is in Bosch’s plans.
It’s a little surprising that there’s no 50′ laser distance measuring tool released between GLM 10 and GLM 20 models, if the GLM 15 has indeed been discontinued as at least one retailer has reported.
The GLM 10 looks to be a respectable entry-level laser distance measuring tool. If you need a little more, such as a backlit display and longer range, consider the GLM 20.
If you need even more than that, Bosch has a whole line of laser distance measuring tools with all kinds of features.
