  1. I am in almost the exact same situation haha. Even down to the ball dots. It isn't a big deal but at the same time I really don't want to have to deal with it. I looked at the Uneekor systems because I found them very interesting. The QED requires ball dots and for $4K more their top of the line monitor does not. That alone made me sit there and wonder if that would be worth it haha which I don't think it is. More for convenience. I definitely want accuracy, but it doesn't have to be crazy. My friends and I have played on an optishot system at one bar and the other has About Golf. The Optishot to us was unplayable. There were times we would be 5 yards from the green and our chips would register 120 yards. A few times but still very annoying. The About Golf are super accurate and correspondingly super expensive. I need something if I am going to practice and play in the winter/occasionally in the summer that is good enough.
  2. Can you tell us what those are? I know there was a rumor of a floor unit from Uneekor, but nothing that I could see confirmed.
  3. Yeah that is where I am at. I can't spend a fortune, but I also don't want to build something and wish I had pivoted to something else if this is going to be a long term setup. I have the same garage issues that you had mentioned that really there is nothing I can do about them. My buddies and I play simulator golf in the winter at a couple bars around here. Just started about 2 years ago and love it since we can't obviously get out starting in mid-November. If this unit is fairly cost effective then it will be a winner but it is also hard to justify $3K plus a subscription plus $500 per course you want to add (give or take). And that is if it is actually $3K and not higher which has also been speculated. We will see. I think they have a real opportunity here. They have to know that selling individual courses for that much money is not competitive vs some of the other software options out there.
  4. I am very curious on the pricing for this. I am working on a garage simulator and put the plans on hold until I got more information on this. My original plan was to go Skytrak or Mevo+ and pair it with TGC2019 but the idea of this unit is way more interesting to me especially with the limited garage space (3rd stall). I live in IL so we are closing in on not being able to golf outdoors pretty soon here and that is why I started this project in the first place. I golf outside as much as possible but with 2 young kids and as someone on here stated the public courses are getting slower and slower to play. This is why having a simulator appeals to me. Golf year round and I can play 18 holes in about 20-30 minutes on a simulator. My major concern about this entire thing is being locked into FSX software. You can have 100,000 courses on TGC 2019 for a one time $950 fee or I know that GS Pro is going to get out of beta soon and that is appealing as well. Meanwhile, it seems like the software subscriptions for this come with either 8 or 10 courses and then you have to purchase them individually from Foresight if you want more. I don't mind paying more for the unit itself but I don't want to get locked into a situation where if I want to play Pebble and Spyglass I have to pay another $1,000 for 2 courses. I am curious on other people's thoughts on this as it does impact my decision due to price definitely being a factor in my build.
  5. Well Brady is playing until he is 50. Browns gonna Browns. If I have learned anything it is that you can't stop Tom Cruise. So I would go Top Gun, Bushnell, Brady, Browns haha. In all seriousness though how do you have a plan to lift an embargo on the 21st and late in the afternoon the day before that you pivot and say "just kidding we will give you a new date soon." How does that even happen that they didn't know this may not be ready for the next day until about 2 hours before the close of business haha.
  6. An admin from the Hackers Paradise thread on this subject said that the embargo was supposed to be lifted tomorrow but that it was delayed today and they should have a new date tomorrow or Wednesday morning sometime. So that is not a great development...
  7. Seconded. I am kind of surprised we have heard nothing considering the reps were supposedly finished with training last week. There hasn't even been the weekly say nothing email from Bushnell. Kind of ironic the last line of the last email from Bushnell was "it is time for Launch Pro."
  8. Embargo on reviews or the actual unit? Did your rep give you pricing or availability details today after training yesterday?
