SC300i


Recommended Posts

If you are using the app for the SC300i it will capture the recordings for you. Just leave it setup in photo mode and it will capture the swing and the metrics. Each video is a few seconds long. 

 

Annoyingly if you export the video it loses the metric overlay. I haven't figured that one out. I prefer to do my video capture with Zepp, though, because it's easier to review the swing in slow motion. With the SC300i capture you can replay it in .25x, .5x, or 1.00 speed but you can't jog it back and forth like you can in Zepp.

I'm fortunate to have two cell phones, so I just capture metrics with MVC/SC300i with one phone and also run Zepp on the other. Zepp is free, it's designed to be used with sensors but if you don't have them the automated video capture will still work. It will also send your swing videos to the cloud so you can retrieve them on other devices; I prefer to review my swing videos on my tablet.

 

I mention the two phones because MVC likes to be the only app open. If you minimize it the SC300i will still display data on the face but the MVC app on your phone may not receive and log it. So if you have Zepp on as the main app MVC may not capture your session. 

 

This could be a limitation of my phone (Pixel 5a), I don't know.

while you were posting that I visited our stash of retired mobile phones and I have a couple of phones that will hopefully work with zepp and no sim card, at least when I'm at home with wifi.  Just working on getting that setup now.  The SC300i wont arrive for a while so I'll spend this time working getting good with zepp.  Thanks for the tips!

Dumb question, but hoping someone here can tell me what I am doing wrong. Took the SC 300i out for its first use while I was on the range before my round today. Booted it up.. selected the clubs I was hitting with the remote.. hit probably 40 shots and saw the data on the device in real time.. then I open up the app and it automatically synchs but there is zero data. It just says zero shots. Am I doing something wrong here? Is the data still stored on the device somehow?

I don't know for sure but I've always gotten the impression that it only saves data captured by the app. If you make shots while it's not connected and synced they won't transfer over. Not sure how it's designed, but that's the experience that I have had.

The weird part is I had it connected and synched but I had my phone closed while I was hitting balls.

Yeah, that's consistent with my experience. I open the app and prop my phone up against the hitting bay or somewhere in the shade. If I put it in my pocket with the app minimized it won't record shots.

You don't need to have it sync'd to the app to get the data. It stores the data on the unit and prompts you to sync the data the next time you connect it to the app. I don't normally use my phone live when I'm practicing with the unit because I'd rather listen to music and the app will kill any music playing when you open it. I just hit my shots, then when I'm packing up my clubs I sync the app and download the data. I think there is a quirk where the data gets assigned to the date you downloaded it, not the date it was collected. So if you go home and sync the data to your phone the next day, it will assume that was your practice day.

Thanks. I still haven’t made it back out to test it again but the data never synced for me, even though I’d do exactly as you described. It prompted the sync, but no data showed up.

Bought the SC300i about a month ago.  Generally no issues, very happy up to now.  Today however it only registered about 1 out of every 12 hits with driver and a hybrid.  The only difference I can think of was it was raining today.  Does rain affect its ability to track a ball?  I should add the range mats were also wet, but that wouldn’t affect driver, obviously.  Anyone else experience a similar issue?

 I just bought the SC300i and after using it for an hour, I am seeing the same thing with my Driver. Works great for my irons. I have a backyard set up. I live in Phoenix so the weather here is good all the time. I have a golf net, golf mat and placed the SC300i at 4ft,5ft,6ft behind, at the same level as the golf mat. Didn't seem to matter, i was getting poor pickup on my Driver swings. I have read on some other posts folks are seeing same results with hybrid, and fairway woods too.

I ordered a refurbished sc300i from amazon and I've been thinking about how I'll use it with video capture.  Is there a way to trigger the recording with one of those bluetooth remotes so I can have my phone on a tripod and easily start recording just before I start a swing?

I believe there is yes. I have a iPhone and use a “remote” to capture my videos

    • 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.

      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.
