Any new $2-3k simulator coming in 2021?

Any news or rumors about a new golf simulator coming out this next year to compete with the mevo+ and skytrak?  Or perhaps a new model of skytrak? (which is currently operating on hardware from 2014)

 

Just wondering if anybody has heard anything.  This is strictly for simulators in the $1.5k to $3.5k range.

I was thinking about posting the same question this morning.  If nothing is released at PGA show, I am likely getting Mevo plus.

 

This is $4,000: https://www.fullswinggolf.com/kit-pre-sale/

 

Following with interest.

Thanks for sharing. This seems ideal for range use.

Thanks. I'm now a $100 poorer.

I’m a Skytrak user too but I gladly put the deposit down for this.  Curious to see how it transpires.

Certainly some potential - but it's actually disappointing just how little information is available at this point.  What will it measure?  what will it calculate?  How much room is required for the setup?  What sim software will it be integrated with?   Will it support Android, ipad or both?    What kind of support or accuracy for chipping and putting or is it just a full swing monitor?

The full swing simulator link above appears to be "an outdoor compliment" to their indoor simulation systems, which appear to be a fortune.  Bummer.

If you visit the chat on this on the golf simulator forum website, a couple of folks reached out and got some responses that make it sound like a mevo+ that will have some club data. It is supposed to work indoors and will have an official partnership with TGC software, and runs with a combo of camera and radar. I’m skeptical about radar systems indoors, so am really looking forward to early reviews.

Also think the FS Sim looks way too vague. The only reason I threw $100 out there was because if they were able to get Tiger to put his name on it they have to have huge plans for it. Hoping it’s what they say it is, but thinking it may be an overpriced Mevo plus. They hit the sweet spot with that 2k price and indoor outdoor plus simulation.

From Full Swing (quoting from the other forum):

ball speed, club head speed, club path, club face, face to target, ball direction, apex, smash factor, launch angle, attack angle, carry distance, total distance, side total, side carry, spin, spin axis

Are these all measured? Or are some of them calculated?

On other sim forum it sounded like a few owners/users are dealing with nightmare CS, and issues. Ymmv

I watched the the Mevo+ Demo Webinar that FlightScope recently did and I was pretty impressed. I was really impressed with FS Golf &FS Skills apps as they seem like they'd be great practice tools which is what I would want the Mevo+ for. Being able to get fairly accurate distance readings along with shot shape, dispersion and the other blub & ball stats that Mevo+ provides is great. 

 

Yes, I have read here as well as in another Mevo+ facebook group that some have issues with chipping and putting, but that isn't a big concern for me. Those are things I like to practice outside to really dial in and don't rely on simulation for short game. For me, being able to play some sim golf would be an added bonus but I don't put a lot of stock into sim golf and it's more just entertainment. To me the value is in the ability to practice indoors and have a good representation of my ball flight and distances.

Rumor around the camp fire is that a company that rhymes with Charmin is bringing out a GC Quad type of launch monitor for sub $5k.  It was supposed to launch at the live PGA Show but since that's not happening this year, who knows when it will release.  

 

This is the best "potential" news I've heard all year.

A Garmin GC quad! I'm so far in you can't even see me! 😁
