Reading the beginning of this thread I’m wondering what your thoughts on the SkyTrak are now, almost four years later. Version 3.3.2 is out now with 3.4 and 4.0 announced this year at the PGA Merchandise show. I’ve had nothing but great results with my SkyTrak. I’ve had it about two and a half years now and use it constantly, year round, for practicing on and playing rounds with my buddies. I’ve found that the SkyTrak reads pretty true to what I hit at the range or on the golf course. Occasionally I’ll get a weird read but it’s never more than two yards of what it would be IRL. Overall I’ve been impressed with the photometric camera, the accuracy, and the price. It is definitely the best bang for your buck currently on the market in regards to launch monitors.
hidrake replied to Brjpool's topic in Training Aids, GPS Devices, Apps, Accessories & More!I came across this post while doing some research. I’m in the same boat, I want to be able to play and work on my golf game year round. Definitely something to think about first is are you looking for just a training simulator, or do you want to be able to have buddies over for beers and fun? That will make a huge difference on what to look for. The software and feedback on simulators now is pretty detailed. Doing things like practice drills and skill tests will help improve your golf game a ton. I’ve been looking for ones that have that, but also let me play courses. I do think that SkyTrak is one of the better ones out there if you’re not wanting to drop upwards of $18,000 and up. The only downside I’ve seen while looking into them is that there is a 5-second delay from when the ball is hit to when it shows up on the screen. The GC2 is probably one of the better ones out there for accuracy. The downside is that once you start factoring in add-ons, it can get pricey fast. TruGolf graphics blew me away the first time I saw one. The multiplayer features allow for up to 8 players, which is perfect for having the guys over and play a course. I’m leaning more towards the TruGolf not just for the training, but then I can have my buddies over for beers and play a course. If you think about the cost of going out, renting a bay for $200, $8 beers it adds up. I like the idea of being able to do all of that at home.
