  1. I think it's very clear and not disputed that the GC3/LP is considerably more accurate than SkyTrak and a better device. The problem is people want that accuracy/quality at the same price as the SkyTrak. If you are trying to figure out if the GC3/LP fits in your "monthly budget" or if $500/year is a big purchase; honesty, this device isn't for you. Let's be real, this is a luxury purchase.
  2. Sounds like another reason to go with LP/GC3, so you don't have to mess with the SkyTrak's sensitive setup requirements. If you're not setting it up side by side with a Quad, how would someone know that it wasn't giving accurate reads?
  3. The accuracy is the key component and you may be undervaluing how much more accurate the GC3/GC4 are than the SkyTrak. Here's a video doing a side by side comparison of Sky Trak to the GC4. Is the SkyTrak unusable? No. Is it close to as accurate as GC4? No.
  4. I have my own shag bag of my gamer balls. I'll take it to my range after they close it and pick balls. I'll also take it on course when I'm practicing.
  5. I think you're misunderstanding the table ( or I could be?). It says that offline distance, peak height, etc ARE available with the Basic Package with FSX2020. The basic package includes FSX2020.
  6. Artificial Turf. All shots were with the most recent Chrome Soft X golf ball. My club has a simulator hitting bay. The main simulator (camera based) was being serviced so our Director of Instruction hooked up his ST. Hitting off of the same Turf with the Uneekor QED sim, again, the distances matched what I expected.
  7. When you say practice, what is it that you are practicing?
  8. What distances? The ST was indoors off of turf at my club. As an example, it was reading the following: 7i - 192 8i - 178 PW - 150 My actually yardages are: 7i - 180 8i - 168 PW - 142 I play enough that I know how far my standard shot goes for each iron. When I go to my local PGA Superstore and hit off of the GCQuad, my distances match that of my shots on course. When I recently went in for a fitting at Club Champion and hit off of the Trackman, my distances matched that of my shots on the course. When I take the Mevo and Mevo+ on course, they do not match the actual distance of the shot. That's how and where I measured those distances.
  9. The ST is 10-15 yards longer on all my irons and the shot shape doesn't match my real ball flight. I've hit the Mevo & Mevo+ predominantly outdoors as they are radar units. They both do a very good job a capturing ball speed and launch angle. However, the spin readings are very inconsistent which affects their calculation on distance. When I'm trying to hit different shots, standard vs. draw vs. fade vs flighted vs 3/4, etc. I'm doing so to learn the distances on each of those shots and the Mevo or Mevo+ don't help me with that as they are not accurate enough.
  10. I respectfully disagree. If you're a golfer that wants to practice, the ST or Mevo+ are not accurate enough. I've hit on both and the ball flight, spin and distances on those devices do not correlate at all to real golf. I think what people are looking for is a seamless experience between launch monitor and on course. To do that, the GC4 / Bushnell Pro / GC3 / Trackman are required. If you just want to hit on a sim/launch monitor just for fun or exclusively, the ST and Mevo+ are more than adequate.
  11. The Apex Pro was the easiest to hit and performed very well. It could hit all the shots.
  12. X-Forged CB 7i, Apex Pro 7i, Apex MB 8i, SeeMore Tri-Mallet Putter I ordered individual Callaway irons for testing this spring. All three of these irons have been hit less than 30 times and have only hit premium balls (no range balls). The specs for all clubs are the same: True Temper Dynamic Gold X7 1" Long 2* Up X-Forged CB - $75 Apex MB - SOLD Apex Pro - $75 The SeeMore Tri-Mallet putter was fit and built by Club Champion. I only had it in play for 6 months.

  13. What course are you playing where you have to worry about hitting rocks on a tee box!? Irons look great and I'm super close to pulling the trigger on some. I'm in Florida, so don't have to worry about hitting out of the desert, but I do have crushed shell on my course. I'm not sure I could handle my clubs looking that worn after a dozen rounds.
  14. I've been borrowing a set of Cobra MB's lately and have hit them very well. Naturally, I'd like to buy my own set but the Cobra MBs aren't made anymore. It got me looking at all the options for black iron heads. Here's my list, what am I missing? There has to be more right!? Titleist T100s Miura MB-101 Cobra RF Forged
