I'm thinking about the new Titleist T400 iron set.

They've now introduced the 38º pitching wedge.

My old seven irons were set at 40º.

This is what comes of hiring engineers without  drug testing them.

 

Maybe you can start a thread called "Nifty's Good Ole Days" and just post all your rants in one place?

To answer the OP question........

NONE! for the first time in a decades I am 'almost' content with my bag from a playing perspective.

 

 

Caveat is if something very sexy or more consistent came along it would be rude not to try it 😉

Extremely conflicted on whether to pull the trigger on a Mevo+ or just the Mevo... 

Mevo+ is a lot of money. I could go get fit for an entire bag of Sub70 stuff for the price. But then I look at the app and the flight simulations and I think how more useful my limited practice time would be...

I originally wanted a SkyTrak, but the "indoor only" aspect is a turn off, since I like something on the range. So I think that's out of the question for now. And the better options (GC2, namely) are too much. $2k is going to be my limit.

Have you seen anything about whether or not the Mevo+ will require metallic dots? I can’t say that I’m in the market but assuming it becomes an option I think I’d like it better than SkyTrack.

For indoor use, the dots will still be required according to the comments on some of their Twitter posts:

In my opinion, Flightscope has botched the release because there is literally almost no information out there about the device, but they are already taking pre-orders. To me that would be a huge leap of faith at this point. But from what I've gathered so far, from a combination of Twitter, their website and a chat with their support team:

- iPhone appears to be the only supported device at the moment. Android is for sure not supported yet, and their web chat support couldn't confirm nor deny iPad support, but if you look at the E6 sim screenshots they've posted it appears to be running on an iPad.

- Price is $1,999 and that includes a limited selection of E6 courses, but there is no subscription model. They may eventually include a subscription model for storing more videos in the FlightScope cloud. There is compatibility with other simulators but I think there will be more cost associated, same if you want more E6 courses than the default.

- Rumor on the sim forums is that the device actually does measure club path and face-to-path, but does not display those numbers. Hope would be that they would either make those available for a price in a later update, or that someone would hack the software to get those numbers.

I'm going to stick with my Swing Caddie for at least another month at this point it seems, as I'm an Android user. I'm not totally opposed to purchasing an iPad for this, but I want confirmation that everything is going to work first before I shell out $2k for the Mevo+ and $300+ for an iPad.

Of course, it'd be nice to see some demo video, the user manual, etc. before ordering as well. Really surprised after all of the teasing of the Mevo+ on Twitter that the release seems so haphazardly thrown together.

Curious, are you using Android or iPhone app? 

I almost bought the regular Mevo yesterday with the idea that I could revisit the Mevo+ next winter, but then I started reading reviews of the Android app and people were complaining it didn't work well at all. Scared me off.

I'm not at the point where I have everything setup for an indoor simulator anywhere, so I could get by with the Mevo for a year, easily.

I use Android with it, Samsung 7 something or other, I've never experienced any issues at all. I've also never used the "video" portion though so that'd be the only uncharted territory I've not ventured in to but all else has been flawless.

Thank you! That's what I wanted to hear.

Looks like Top Shelf Golf (one of FlightScope's distributors) has a nice product page up now: https://topshelfgolf.com/products/flightscope-mevo-plus-launch-monitor-and-golf-simulator

It does look like iOS/iPad would be the route to go. Concern for me is the indoor flight distance, I'm not sure if I have enough space. I assume the "long indoor" is the more accurate mode.

Weather permitting I’ll take my SkyTrak outdoors and give it a whirl. Indoors it is awesome and the complaints I see are using it outdoors in direct sunlight.
