flightscope mevo vs garmin r10 best for outdoor

Hello, I just finished watching a ton of video on both of these devices
I am looking for a good launch monitor for when I go to the range, what I really want out of my launch monitor is to be able to hit all my clubs and write them each distance difference between all my clubs, so next time I go on the course, I'm not guessing which club I should hit

which one would fit me best between these 2 launch monitor? they are both in my price range (I honestly wish I had a bigger budget for the mevo+ but if you guys tell me these 2 can do what I need it to do, I will buy one of them, but if everyone says I should wait and buy the mevo+, I will reflect on it cause I really wanted to also change my irons this year so my budget is kind of limited)

I will always be using it outside

Titleist TSR2 5W 18 degree tensei 1k black stiff

If you're only using it outdoors and not intending to go with a Pro package upgrade eventually, R10 is probably the most efficient buy.

 

Mevo+ is objectively the better unit (except battery life) but it also costs more than 3x what the Garmin does and isn't so much better at outdoor ball metrics to warrant the extra cost - again, unless you want a much broader dataset from Mevo+ Pro now or at a later time.

 

I'm not up to date on what the most recent firmware changes have done for the R10's outdoor club data reliability so hopefully someone more knowledgeable about that can chime in. Wouldn't trust it indoors for anything beyond ball speed, club speed, smash, carry and backspin (with RCT).

Have you considered other options? There are lots of devices that will give you a good reading for carry distance for clubs and be quite a bit cheaper. PRGR is good for block practice at a range. Shot Scope or Arccos will give you real world club distances on the course as you play. The one caveat is Shot Scope tracks total distance including any slope/roll-out, etc.

 

I own both PRGR and Shot Scope V3.

While not for the range, if you’re really just trying to determine club distances, you might want to consider something like the Garmin S62 GPS watch. It will record all of your shots and as long as you choose the right club, it will show you average distance and longest shot for each club. The watch senses every time you hit the ball and measures distance based on location of your next shot. Pair it with club sensors and you don’t even have to enter the club on each shot. After a few rounds, you’ll have your distances. These are obviously total distances, not carry, but you’re also getting a great GPS.

Problem is that range balls are on a quality continuum ranging from barely acceptable to outright trash. 

 

My local range just installed Trackman Range and the software for Trackman Range includes a conversion for what the numbers would look like if you were hitting a premium ball. My session shows >20y difference between actual carry vs their converted numbers on driver, and ranging between 7-11 yards difference on 8i.

 

Unless you're hitting high quality balls at your range, the data will be flat wrong. I only paid for Trackman Range for one session because I realized the data wasn't going to be useful for me (as well as Trackman not allowing you to download raw data to a .CSV file where you can use it). 

 

I'm considering the R10 myself for practice, but the plan will be for outdoor use into a hitting net with the actual golf ball I play on course. In that case of course I need the extra data that includes spin, side spin, launch direction, etc so I will know what I'm getting for ballflight since I'm not on a range where I can watch it fly.

    • 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.
