New FlightScope Mevo+ (MERGED)


enormous13

Recommended Posts

Also might want to make sure you understand the level of integration with the sim software IF simulation is of interest to you. Don't make any assumptions on what it will/wont do. For example, Xi+ and Xi Tour (and even X2) integration with E6 (v1.6) doesn't include chipping or putting and I don't expect that to change for E6 connect. I don't know if it does or not, but I'd be a little bit surprised if the mevo+ has capabilities that the more expensive units don't have.

I wouldn't be particularly concerned with putting and chipping, those are things I really prefer to practice "real".

These systems have to make a lot of assumptions because of what they can sense. I’d guess they do this for Loft and LA? Maybe some spin too?

I tried to build one of these things with some 24G Doppler sensors and needed three calibrated sensors to determine direction and LA. Then I didn’t need to know what club I was using.

It’s a reasonable hack to keep size and cost down.

There's a post on the Flightscope Mevo Facebook page where a FS rep was answering questions in the comments. Confirmed that the price is $1999 and that it will "launch" at the PGA show. Not really a hard release date in that statement, but it reads to me like you'll be able to order it when they launch it or shortly after. https://www.facebook.com/flightscopemevo/

My understanding, just based purely on anecdotal data from various other posters, is that for the Mevo, setting the correct club helps with the detection. It's not used to influence the results (e.g. they are not using an assumed loft to help calculate launch angle or spin). However, in theory, an earlier detection can mean more of the ball flight captured which means more usable data and more accurate or reliable results.

@Lincoln_Arcadia said the ball is blocked from the “view” of the radar by the club itself for at least the first two feet of motion.
Can't speak to resolution of the mevo, but if you look at the raw Trackman data, ball is visible to the radar when it's still behind the club face.

Check out this link from the golf wire about Awesome Golf. Shows the simulator range with data points, could these be what the MEVO+ will measure?

I hope our suspicions are correct. For $2k and get all those data points (hopefully are indeed measured) is definitely game changing.

If I look at the image of the data blocks on the phone in the tweet, MEVO+ appears to show data for spin axis, horizontal launch angle and angle of attack.

The MEVO reports club speed, ball speed, smash, total spin, vertical launch angle, carry, apex height and flight time.

Wonder what the other four parameters are that MEVO+ reports?

Flightscope confirmed on the Facebook page for Mevo in a couple of comments I saw.

That's quite a jump from the Mevo price point. But if it can accurately provide the information shown in the graphic above, they will have a hit on their hands.

From everything I have read, it's not meant to be any replacement for the Mevo but a product that fits in their line between Mevo and the entry level FlightScope unit. I was almost ready to pull the trigger on a SkyTrak but if this is everything it appears to be I'll probably go this route.

Well shoot, that might be a hindrance for me as well. Do you know what distance is usually required?

Typically a minimum of 8-10' of ball flight is required to get usable spin data - but it does depend on ball speed and spin rates since the requirment comes to how many data points can be collected. Some of the faster swing speed players can have trouble with their driver when pushing the minimum limits.

Thanks - I guess I need to do some measuring in the garage when I get home.

Just went out to FlightScope's sight and found the requirements for the current Mevo in the FAQ:

"Yes, mevo can be used indoors and outdoors. The space requirements for indoors is 8 feet of ball flight and 4-7 feet behind the impact. In total you will need up to 15 feet of space."

I believe the question was with respect to the Mevo+, not the mevo. Although if anything is going to change, it most likely will be the minimum for how far away behind the ball the unit needs to be. e.g. don't know if that 4' minium will stay at 4' for the Mevo+. The bigger units like the Xi+ need to be at least 8' behind the ball.

    • 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.
