New FlightScope Mevo+ (MERGED)


Recommended Posts

Target alignment is very easy with the camera and device. Red vertical line top to bottom of the image. Just put a ball down or alignment stick in the ground on the target line. I have not used it outside yet but...

 

indoors it is extremely sensitive and measures roll and pitch to 0.1 degrees. I use paper to shim the roll to 0 bc I’ve read this highly impacts spin axis measurement. On grass this could be a pita. If the area is tightly mown prob no problem but longer grass could bounce back and move it around. If it’s your yard I’d put a paver or something like that down. At the range I’d take a clipboard or flat piece of plastic and some paper to shim. 
 

im sure other folks here have used it outside and can chime in. A YouTuber Scott hogan uses one and has used it outside and he has helped me with a couple of things.

I've had both units. Now, qualifying statement, I only used my Mevo+ for a few weeks before having to send it in for repair for a calibration issue, and get it back this week... I had my Skytrak abo

Stolen from golf simulator forum. Apparently TGC will be compatible? The no shot delay is very nice.

For those waiting on a unit like me, they are back producing units in South Africa. It will still be a while - but some good news for now.

I've been getting a lot of information from Scott's videos.  They are good.

my setup is a truestrike mat that puts the surface well above the unit. I bought a 6 ft 2x12 to try and bring the unit to level. It may still be an inch low. I generally set tee height to “1 off the mat 2” off the tee. I should probably experiment further with that. 

 

 

I think you only need to account for the mat. I think I watched someone say that, and it's been really accurate for me. 

 

It accounts for tee on driver and such. I'll try find it if I can

I was looking deeper into spin rate. Evidently mats spin a lot less. This article has someone getting ~2k less spin with a 7 iron off a mat vs grass so not a mevo+ issue or not as much of one with the irons as I thought.

This is part of the reason why I hate indoor simulator fittings!

Another update. I found the E6 ranges giving better spin rates on the driver and short irons. I also found the spin going up after a bit and when I switched to a fresh ball the spin rate when down. Might be something to the fresh ball thing, or I psychosomatically hit it higher on the face 😁.  Kind of annoying bc I wasn’t getting all the same data as fs golf. 
 

I went to play a few holes on aviara and I was hitting fades / slices that weren’t carrying. Hit a few mullies and could hardly get it straight to drawing when I felt it should be really drawing to hooking... then noticed I had a 12-18 mph gusty wind going on 😂. I thought u had to select that so be warned.

@Red5 I think a lot of people don't recognize deformation through repeated strikes as a reason for wonky reads.  Having worked in a sim, I could tell when balls were starting to "go bad" from repeated use.  The scary part is when a ball breaks from overuse and the damage that can result to the screen.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
