    Does SkyPro work without a ball?


    Read post #29.


    Just for further clarification, I posted the question on their FB and this is the response I just received



    Me - Will this work without hitting a ball? If so, will it be just as accurate



    SkyPro - Yes and yes. As long as you brush the ground lightly, SkyPro will capture the swing and transmit it accurately to the app.




    Thanks for this ...I really didnt want to go back and re-read the whole thread

  • Has anyone tried Noitom mySwing? I tried it at the PGA merchandise show, and it's got really fast response time. Much faster than all the other products I've tried (3Bays, Swingbyte, Golf Sense), which take ~6 seconds to download and show data on my iPhone. It's got a 3D swing plane feature that's pretty useful, and seems more accurate than the others. I didn't get a chance to try GolfPro as they didn't have demo units when I was there. What's the response time like? I've seen a review among swing smart/swingbyte/golf sense, in which swing smart was the winner. I'd love to see a review for all products.

    Looks good. So the category tied into the I Phone/ Ipad ( and Droid for some) now has



    SkyPro

    Swingtip

    Swingbyte

    3bays

    Swingsmart

    Zerolinegolf



    Looks like a Golf WRX shootout in the Spring would be a great!

    I just got an email that mine has shipped! The tracking # isn't in UPS yet, so I don't know the day it will arrive...



    Excited to test it out!

    When did you order? If you don't mind. I haven't got an email yet. I ordered the first week of March and with the first come first serve I'm trying to get an idea how far down the line I am. Pretty excited about this technology.

    With all this free press generated from this post, you'd think I got the hookup... no such luck. I'm still waiting like everyone else on this product. If it's as good as it was at the show, I think it's a great tool for any golfer to practice with. Really cool

    It really seems like the groove feature is going to be ground breaking. It's easy to break down film (or try with crappy iphone footage) and do lessons but to be able to get instant feedback on what's good and bad swing after swing is amazing. Being a hacker, to be able to work on my swing in the yard and know what I'm working on is correct and I am not just guessing will help my game leaps and bounds.

    I note the SkyPro online store is now only taking preorders. Looks like they sold out really fast.

    My wife picked this up for me yesterday at Golfsmith. I haven't been able to take it to the range yet but I made a few swings in the living room and as long as I brushed the carpet it would register on the ipad. You can really clamp it down on the club too so I don't think it will move around even when hitting balls. Can't wait to get to the range!

    u gotta be f-in kidding me you can get these at golfsmith? I just checked and they have them at my local one... I think ill try to cancel my pre-order and pick one up today. Thanks for the heads up.



    EDIT - Stoked!!! Just ran over to GS and picked one up (Perks of working two blocks away). They said a ton of people have been calling about them and they only got a few so if you can I would recommend trying to get one through GS ASAP. For reference I pre-ordered mine ~ two weeks ago and was told i get it late may.

    C'mon....we need a review. What's the box like?!
  • nandlernandler Members Posts: 29 ✭✭
    Ok quick review here. First thing you do is calibrate the club my holding the phone on the face and moving it around. It automatically figures out what club you have in your hand which is cool. The bad part is if your phone turns off then you have to recalibrate the club again which is annoying. When you make a swing it uploads almost immediately. By the time you pick up your phone it has all the information already. It gives you alerts on your swing if anything is out of some standard deviation of normal. The checkpoints are shaft lean @ address, shaft angle @ address, takeway angle @ half back, face angle @ half back, backswing length, return angle @half down, face angle @half down, shaft lean @ impact and shaft angle @ impact. You can also look at your swing plane throughout the swing from any angle. It also shows the clubhead speed, hand speed, swing tempo, and time to impact. All that is in the swing menu. I haven't tried the plane or groove menus yet.



    So I give it a big thumbs up so far!

    I was going to hold off on buying the Skypro until after all the reviews, but after reading this thread and your post about the discount at GS, I went ahead and bought it. Not sure if I should thank you or hate you...
