  2. Good morning MGS brethren! I am creating this thread to put quality information out into the community for those who are trying to research how to build an epic golf simulator. I just finished my build and it has drastically improved my game in the short time that it has been in use. When I started to research all of the different options for components however, not a lot of good information was available..... Now it will be! I will be updating this thread in a stage-type fashion. Each stage of the project will show pictures of the setup, components, and result. Each stage will also have all of the different vendors researched, the decision that was made & why, and links to the selected products. I hope that this will drastically help anyone going down the road of building their own. Enjoy!

  4. Looking to buy a used Skytrak unit or Garmin Approach R10!!! If you are in SoCal/Orange County, I can pick up, but shipping is fine as well. Thanks in advance
  5. Hi, We have a TrackMan flex cage (three to four years old and used only in winter months) that we no longer need. We are installing a professional studio and will use the TrackMan 4, projector, cpu, etc. but no longer need the flex cage. Looking to sell it and will take best offer - pickup only (Northern Delaware). TrackMan sells them new for $14k. We would are willing to sell for $5k (screen replacement needed). Note: The unit is disassembled and is being stored for summer. After winter use, the screen developed a hole and will require a replacement - not provided. All other pieces of cage, including turf are in good shape. Thanks, Anthony
  6. This listing is for a: -Foresight Sports GC2 golf simulator -FR1 Software (range, fitting and ~90 courses, including Augusta National), -Hitting Mat (59” x 47”) -Computer -P3ProSwing Impact Screen The GC2 is in excellent functional condition (the plastic flip foot did crack, but has been repaired and works properly). I’ve had it for ~6 years and only used it a few times a year up until last year my son started using it for a couple hours a week. The battery still holds a good charge and I have discharged it every month per Foresight’s recommendations. The hitting mat and impact screen show some wear, but are fulling functional. The screen could use a good cleaning, but you don’t notice the marks when the image is projected onto it. Attached is a generic picture of the screen, I’ll try to add an actual picture here soon. It’s been a while since I’ve had it out, but I believe its 9ft(h) x 10ft(w) x 4ft(d). The computer came from Foresight and can run both FR1 (original software) and FSX (newer version, not included). Everything you need to get your golf simulator up and running except for a projector/monitor. The original total cost for this setup would be well over $10K new with all the courses. I also have a surround sound system that was used with the golf simulator ($2,250 OBO) -Denon AV Surround Preamplifier (DN-500AV) -2 Yamaha DXR12 Powered Speakers -2 Yamaha DXR8 Powered Speaker -1 Yamaha DXS12 Powered Subwoofer -Mounting Brackets for the speakers -Audio and power cables -Manuals I'll be happy to ship the simulator (the surround sound system is too heavy) after a cleared payment through PayPal Goods and Services for actual shipping costs. If you're in the Dayton, Ohio area, you're welcome to try it out or I'd be willing to meet anywhere in the general area. Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions.
  7. 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:

  9. Testers Wanted (4) Is it possible for practice to be fun? Is it possible for a training to make you want to spend extended time “practicing”? Can an affordable putting simulator offer you realistic feedback on your golf game? We mean affordable as in cheaper than some of the current drivers on the market now. Got you're attention yet? Well Read on for a very rare opportunity! ExPutt is an at home indoor putting simulator that offers golfers the ability to practice on a high-quality simulator that until now could only be found in a professional setting. Does it do all the things mentioned earlier? We are going to let four of you tell the MyGolfSpy community. More Pics and Video Here How to Apply In a post below in this thread--DO NOT QUOTE THIS POST--provide the following information. This testing is open to US Residents Only Name/City State How Often do you Practice Putting and How Long? How many 3 putts do you average per round? What interests you most about Exputt from what you have seen or read? We'll be choosing the testers sometime next week, so check back and see if you've been selected!
  10. I bought a Swingbyte a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the data it provided (club path, club face, loft, lie, etc). They also had great customer service! The company seems like they fell off the map and haven't updated the software or website in well over a year. I also did a search for other swing analyzers and this area has seemed to dry up. I had hope these devices would translate into a golf simulator. Anyone see any updates in the market or any new swing analyzers?
  11. Hey Optishot players ! Online play is happening as we speak and we just finished our first tournament. Everyone is welcome to join the tour at www.onlinegolftour.net . There is live leaderboards, chat and your own stats. Better practice though as the competition is fierce ! Cheers. Maxxx
  12. Came across this room on Electronic House. How could I not share it here? http://www.electronichouse.com/photo/interior_designers_embrace_technology_and_home_automation/4
  13. I know everyone wants to see the new stuff from COBRA. Since we can't post that yet, here are a few pics you might find interesting meanwhile. These are the steps in the process of machining a prototype head. Starting with a block of steel, they machine what they can from the top. They leave the block on the face so they can fasten it upside down to machine the back. Once they do the back, they cast it in epoxy so it can be held in place to machine the block off the face and mill grooves. On a mass produced piece, they would build a jig to hold it in place. But for one at a time prototype, this is how they do it. Driver face. OK, now this was interesting. The USGA has a maximum roughness allowed for wedges measured from the peaks to the valleys on the face. This doesn't include the groove areas, just the surface. They also have a maximum average roughness measured across the whole face. It's fairly easy to approach the maximum on one or the other of the two, but very difficult to get close to the maximum for both. COBRA came up with a simple, but ingenious way to approach both maximums and get the best friction coefficient allowed. They do a variable feed rate milling pattern on the face. When you're machining a part, be it on a lathe or mill, the feed rate will determine the surface roughness. A slow feed rate will create a smoother finish than a faster rate which creates grooves or lines. COBRA programs the mill to feed it fast for a few hundredths then slow for a few, then fast again, alternating like this across the entire face. This gives them close to the max on the peak to valley measurement as well as the average across the face as a whole. Here is a picture of the machine used to measure the face. It has a very fine diamond tip similar to a needle on an old record player. As the stylus is dragged across the face, it measures the variations in micro inches. Here is the graph generated at different scale factors. They do a tremendous amount of testing to maximize performance and durability. Here is a pic of a testing machine that launches a ball at a club. They can use this to hit a club thousands and thousands of times to check durability of the face. It will also measure the ball speed into the face and the rebound which is how to measure C.O.R.. As you can see, this machine is not a portable device which is why they are now measuring C.T. (Characteristic Time). They have a C.T. tester too. Unfortunately I did not grab a picture of it. But it is a small, portable machine that drops a steel ball on an arm into a club face and it measures the time the ball is in contact with the face before the rebound. This machine was blasting ball after ball at the club mounted in it. Now, here's the really cool one! The robot. Yea, that's a bad word at MGS for club testing and rightly so. However, they have their place. They are invaluable for R & D. This one doesn't just hinge the club like some of the first such as Iron Byrons. This one actually rotates the club open in the backswing and rotates it to square and shut through impact and follow through like a real swing. They can set up different clubs and do what they call "carpet bombing" them. Once they get the club to release exactly square, (which can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days due to variations in shafts!), they can make it come into impact across a grid covering the entire face. This let's them measure exactly how performance drops as impact is moved away from perfect. They can measure the area that provides very close to 100% of the performance of a perfect strike. The new drivers we can't show pics of yet have a much larger area that provides close to optimum ball speed on the not-so-optimum strikes. Here's the robot. And here's the GCS2 with the HMT (Head Measurement Technology) addition. A side note: Radar units, while very good at tracking the ball, cannot actually measure the face angle and all of the club data they provide at impact. The units are behind the club and have no view of the face. So they calculate it based on what they do see the club doing as well as the ball flight. The HMT seen here has full view of the face to provide actual measurements of it at impact making it more accurate for this application. Now, this was REALLY cool! I could have spent all day in here, but we were running out of time. Here is a simulator with another GCS2. However, it was more than that. See what looks like track lighting that Jose is pointing to in the second picture? That is a 3D tracking system. There are a few more pics I'm kicking myself for not getting here, but I was swinging a club and didn't stop to grab them. They have clubs with special reflective spheres attached to the club head and the shaft that these sensors mounted around the room track in addition to to ball itself. It tracks the club through the entire swing, including how the clubhead moves in relation to shaft flex. They also have a suit they can put you in with reflectors in strategic places that then models how your body moves through the swing as well. We didn't have time to get me suited up, but I was able to take a number of swings with the club and see the results on the screen. Sorry for not having more pics of this. Here's one of the "Wedge Wizard" Jose Miraflor working on my wedge. Here's a few more random pics of the event and La Costa. Catching T giving me the "eye" on day 1 Haha! A cool bridge across the water on the course. A couple more pics of the main building at La Costa from the course. Rickie pulling a club and getting ready to hit a pitch shot to the green with us. (I have that ball he's about to hit in the last one BTW. Haha!) Tony visiting after the tournament, before dinner, and in his room DOING HIS JOB!!!! OK, that's about it for now. We'll have pics of the new clubs before long. Most of it in November and some of it in January.
