Bushnell Launch Pro Device with Foresight

it's very relevant to the targeted market.   Most sim rooms are intentionally not "decently lighted" to get the most out of the projected display on the impact screen.

 

 

Technology has advanced exponentially since SkyTrak and GC2 launched. They are archaic pieces of technology now. Simulator room brightness is of little concern now.

So, pardon my ignorance about this subject. Will I be able to use this in my garage, hitting balls into a net thats say 5 feet in front of me?

Since its camera based, chances are that you would need much less space than radar-based Las

That’s interesting. ‘Core consumer’ and off course golf segment is very different language to their marketing of launch monitor for all. This new language very much screams ‘overpriced’ or at least professionally priced, the 3k seems a more likely price based on this language. They could do with letting their marketing department know.

And I guess 80% of the features for a fraction of a the price the pros pay could fit 3k also.

And what Vishak and team are going to do is take a product offer kind of 80% of the features, if you will, and bringing at a price point that's a fraction of what the pros pay for launch monitor. So exciting growth opportunity for us in Golf. So we appreciate everybody's attendance this morning. We know this is a busy earnings release week, and a lot of you are busy on other calls.

If there's one thing we should ALL be ready for is that RRP isn't what you'll pay.

 

Sure, it's 2999, but sales tax, subscriptions, add-ons, courses… Nothing costs what they say it costs.

 

One thing I don't miss about the US is how they never include sales tax in the price. They can't because of all the differing rates, but it never feels right.

It's pretty clear that right now, the R10 is a toy and won't compete here.

 

What will be interesting to me as a happy MEVO+ owner is what to expect in response from Flightscope.  I have to believe they kept club/path locked for this possibility.  If the rumors on the Launch Pro are true, FS can react to whatever is done with Range Pro without losing much money.  But, they're still going to have to deal with X3 customers if MEVO+ gets upgraded.

Flightscope is in quite a weird position at the moment with this huge gap in price and functionality between the Mevo+ and X3, and they don't seem to be making anything anymore (or at least advertising/promoting anything) in the middle.

 

I'm guessing that a part of the problem is that even many pro's only buy the high end launch monitors to have face/path and don't understand or aren't really interested in all the other variables e.g. D-Plane, VSP, HSP etc. As soon as something on the low(er) end offers face/path accurately then poof goes the high end market.

 

Having said that, it definitely makes sense for companies to have as much capability as possible in the hardware so that they can unlock it in future if the market / competition demands it. Flightscope has been very cagey re. whether the Mevo+ is actually capable of face/path (I've watched all their Mevo+ webinars and this question comes up often) and responses have varied from (paraphrasing): "no it isn't", "we're looking into it, watch this space" and "not at the moment".

This is just my own opinion, and it doesn't stop with launch monitors. I find it immoral to ship hardware that's disabled. Software is bits, and that's different. But making something that has a capability intentionally locked away seems like a waste for the sake of waste.

 

Maybe that's just me, but there's enough e-waste. No sense in it never being used waste.

If its truly a capability there are some pretty good hackers out there and someone surely would have figured out how to jail break it by now.  Pretty sure there aren't any tutorials out there on how to do it.

So is that true?  Or not?  Regarding the software.  Is the software 3k?  If so, that's an unfortunate deal breaker for me.  But can you provide more info on the 3000 number?  Did you talk to someone at Foresight?  Thanks

3k is what the FSX software is on the Foressight website. I wonder if/hope they will have a "lite" version of the software for this model. Perhaps not though, as from what I understand they use the same software on GC2 + HMT

That's just how it's listed on their site now. I imagine that it's going to come with a driving range, and something like a $50/mo sub or some such nonsense… similar to skytrak… if you want to play indoor golf.

3k with a driving range is probably about what I could ‘justify’ to myself. (Assuming it’s a straight £ to $ swap as these products often are). 

 

Simulator golf doesn’t appeal to me enough to justify the cost of the fsx but club data and a range for ball flight Is what I want so will find a way to sneak this past the boss. 
 

currently waiting on my r10 that should tide me over.
