@Golfjack Completely agree on ball speeds. Any radar used is going to vary from another. I've run my MEVO against pro-line LMs (FSx3 and TM) and good quality sims (HD Golf; e6 Truswing). Never once did I find a discrepancy or trending variance that would make me question MEVOs accuracy.
I think it's known that MEVO+ will have simulation. IMO, the early renderings look a bit cartoonish, but for my use, perfectly acceptable. The question is whether it will have full connectivity to the highly coveted e6 and TGC sims. If it does, I would think it would mean the end of the road for Flightscope's Xi line. Just not enough differentiation...
If they want to preserve the Xi, I could see a MEVO+ having connectivity to a trial version of e6 Connect which I think has a range and a course or two.

I'm on my second Mevo and was on the original wait list. I love the latest version and have been using it a ton for my sons 10u Travel Baseball team. With winter being long and drawn out it works flawlessly at the driving range and in the baseball cages on a tri-pod. When will the new Mevo be available for pre-order?

FlightScope's application with the FCC states the Mevo+ is going to be using similar 24GHZ s-band frequency microstrip patch antennas found in the original Mevo. The Xi series utilizes 10.5MHZ x-band frequency radars which are much more powerful and have much higher definition to accurately measure data points, especially club data. Most any radar is good at accurately picking up speed of an object like a golf ball.

The accuracy of the Mevo+ will not match that of the Xi or any other radar unit like Trackman that also uses 10.5MHZ radar. https://fccid.io/QXP-LJ361/Test-Report/Test-Report-FDS-4549453

Whoa - I've been thinking about picking up a little portable launch monitor and damn near pulled the trigger on the Mevo last night. Glad I waited!

I have a feeling the new one is going to cost a good bit more than the current Mevo.

Yeah I can see the Mevo+ being set just below the now discontinued Xi . Basically giving normalized ball data based on partial flight and likely adding spin axis/horizontal launch such that they can give L/R dispersion. AoA and spin loft will be saved for the Xi+ and above, as well as the ability to track the full ball flight.

Reckon we'll see. If it's in that price range; definitely a bit more than I wanna spend on what's effectively a "nice to have" and I'll just pick up the old one. From everything I read; it was accurate *enough* for distances which is all I really want it for.

For a phased array radar, pulse rep frequency, dopler freq, and power will certainly effect the detection threshold (min and max range) and velocity threshold but once detection has occurred, the velocity measurements from the dopler shift and even distance measurements should be plenty accurate for any golfers needs. For directional accuracy (azimuth and elevation) the number of array elements used will be a bigger factory than either of the frequencies. And I haven't seen anything that gives an indication of what they've done with that (the size of the unit). But likely more elements than the mevo but fewer than the larger Xi Tour/X3 units.

@Stuart_G @Lincoln_Arcadia You guys seem to know a lot about the tech behind the FS LMs. My understanding of the current MEVO (NOT MEVO+) is the purpose of club selection is to "point" ball detection to an expected shot window. Is that correct? If so, why is that needed? I've not purposely hit shots outside of the selected club to test. Thanks again to you both for adding technical insight to this thread!

The larger units (TM, X series) are phased array (both TM and FS clearly point that out on their web sites). But not sure about Mevo. I had thought so but never saw anything to actually confirm it so could be wrong. I don't know for sure but I wouldn't think the patch antenna's have enough of an azimuth detection capability to be able to get accurate launch angles. At least not a single patch antenna.

Although the two (phased array and patch) aren't really mutually exclusive. Multiple patch's can be used to form a phased array - or a single patch could be created with an array of multiple antennae that could used as a phased array antenna.

Anybody see this yet? Looks like e6 simulation?

Hey @FlightScope Mevo does this mean Mevo+ will be able to run e6 simulation?

$1999 When can you take my money?? Will this also be a Baseball radar like the Mevo? I have no problems buying the Mevo+ and keeping the Mevo but my wife might!

I'm guessing it'll be in competition with SkyTrak, and thus probably priced somewhere $1700-2000

I hadn't seen that, where was that shared? I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a SkyTrak but this has me putting that on hold until all the details on this are released.

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.

      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
