Hello MGS Community, I'm a long time consumer of MyGolfSpy, but this is my first Topic I've created. The gist of this thread is how to build the best Home Simulator for $4,000. That seems like a lot, but in my honest opinion, this is the lowest cost you can get while getting a full sim experience with true ball data instead of random ball data assumed from club data systems like the Optishot's infrared system. I'm not here to brag about anything as you can see from pictures below that I built this system over a number of years and countless hours of research. In the below spreadsheet, I work through an analysis of each of these components and review them based on personal experience and the reviews of trusted golf equipment reviewers: 1. Launch Monitors 2. Hitting Mats 3. Nets and Impact Screens 4. Simulator Softwares 5. Projector In the spreadsheet, I provide data on my research, actual use, recommendations, costs, and links to the products. I will say you can spend a lot more than $4,000 using my spreadsheet, but you can also spend less. There are always more expensive and cheaper options out there that will work, but I have done my best to give an in depth review of those products including the pros and cons on when to go expensive vs. when is the cheaper option just as good if not better. Popular brands in the analysis are Skytrak, Flightscope Mevo, GC2, Optishot, Net Return, Carl's Place screens, Viewsonic projector, Fiberbuilt, Truestrike, The Golf Club 2019, and TruGolf by E6. Here is the viewable spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hbjBM2Iuk7QC4s6XDVrrWlrEZ7lDRvdwN0qTulBDK7k/edit?usp=sharing Below are some pictures of my final and some of my earlier setups:
I read the Most Wanted Testing that was done on these two years ago, and wanted to see if anyone has any information on the latest models. In the testing the SC100 did the best, but now I know there is the SC200 out. I'm personally intrigued by the ES14 for all it advertises. Also of interest but perhaps out of my range is the SkyTrack. It seems this year and last year the shottracking systems have really taken off for perosnal use. I'm hoping and waiting for these devices to do the same. The $200 price for the VoiceCaddy models is very affordable, the $500 for the ES14 is the price of a topline driver. But if it ;performs as advertised, I could see it being worth the price. I'd be curious to hear any current thoughts or experiences of anyone on any of these.
