I got the Skytrak this past Christmas for my son and I. Best purchase to help us get through the winter months.. only additional cost each year is the subscription to play courses and certain challeng

So, I am sitting here in training all week at home. I couldn't wait for the net and mat to arrive, so I plugged in the SkyTrak and chipped in my living room. Why? Because my wife isn't here, and sh

I have decided on the SkyTrak. Pulled the trigger last week, and I received the launch monitor yesterday. I've cleared out some space in the garage, but the mat and net won't arrive for a few more w

I ahve SkyTrak and have had it since it has been available.  Their customer support is non-existent.  That said, the issues I have had were app related (whether shots were saving/syncing) and not hardware related.  And the app issues never kept me from being able to use the unit..

 

Last year, I used a demo version of E6 and this year I "rented" Perfect Golf.

 

Full shots are pretty realistic and reliable.  Putting is a little funky but at least usable with auto gimmies.  Chipping is not as good as the rest.  Part of it is not being able to "flop" off of a matt and part is just that you can't hit it soft enough to get a 20 foot chip close. 

 

The only real issue I have is that there is a fairly long delay between hitting the ball and seeing a result. Can be a little annoying but not a show stopper.

 

All in all I'm happy I have it,  I use the simulator at least weekly and I use the SkyTrak app as a driving range a couple times a week.

@Nugg126, how does this work. After you hit a tee shot do you set up for your second shot or do you just practice your swing from the mat? Does it simulate a proper golf game? Excuse the ignorance, this is a very cool setup you have there.

no apologies needed... after you hit you are given another distance to the flag and you change your club for the distance. You also can putt. Pretty accurate!!

Very interested to see how the new GCQuad affects the GC2 resale market. Here's to hoping they institute a used + warranty program.

$700 discount and 6 month warranty on refurbished right now.

I'll have a GC2 and FSX here in a little over a month. Best part, I can simulate putting right next to the bay on a putting green. Anyone have experience with the fsx software and courses?

I pulled the trigger on the skytrak recently. I really love the unit. It does give accurate numbers. Is it a flight scope or trackman? No. Did I have that kind of cash for those machines? No. I have no information for you about customer service....but I did read a lot of online reviews and people do hate the customer service. It is nice to have realistic feedback while hitting balls into the net in my garage. I highly recommend the unit.

I had a flightscope hooked up with E6 software which was good, but needs more space. I am changing to a skytrak instead

There's good product support (fixing issues, releasing updates to make it better, listening to feedback) and then there's good customer support. I don't own one and have never called them, so just basing this off things I've read. They seem to be doing a decent job on product support and a crappy job at customer support.

 

That doesn't make the Skytrack a bad product.

It doesn't make it a bad product, but it makes it a bad product to buy if yours isn't perfect. Roll the dice and gamble on yours being perfect? No thanks. I'll wait until someone comes out with one they're willing to support.

I replaced my original hitting mat after 3 winters (about 12 months total), the Realfeel mat I replaced it with 2 years ago does feel better to me, and seems to be holding up better.

 

Sorry, I don't recall the brand / model of the first mat I purchased, but it wasn't cheap ;)

Any preference for mats or has anybody found any real advantage to the $$$ ones like realfeel?

 

Do not cheap out on a mat if you are going to be using it extensively. A wrist injury isn't worth it. My real feel mat still looks great after four years of heavy usage. I have read on golf simulator forum of people using a lesser quality mat with a silicone gel mat underneath it and saving a little money that way but still getting good shock absorption.....

Personally for skytrak I think the fiberbuilt is the best mat, and gives you the most accurate numbers, and won't hurt you on hitting down and through. But...(there is always a but) if you do simulation, its not the best for putting.  Thinking of making some sort of track system for the skytrak so I can put in front of the fiberbuilt.

But if you are doing the range or dynamic handicap testing this mat is fantastic.

Also check out P3 Pro - this one uses a series of infrared sensors set in a small rectangular piece of hardware (that's the LM and) that you hit off of, and that fits into a cut-out in side of the hitting mat.

 

So no camera or overhead projector and indirect light doesn't interfere.

 

You can buy different packages with a mat, or with a net and there are add-on courses. No other costs or subscriptions.

 

Cannot speak to the accuracy of the numbers it gives you, but it does give you basic LM data in addition to practice range and sim play.

 

Putting? Well.... it is what it is on an indoor sim....

 

Have not had any issued that required tech support ( but then for various stoopit reasons have not actually used it that much ... yet .... am cleaning out and reorganizing my garage.... [emoji106] ).

I have a nice outdoor shed and live up north.  I put an optishot inside and my son and I have been playing on it almost daily.  Is the system limited, absolutely.  It is not Foresight, Trackman or anything close to those.

 

I will say this.  My son has improved Tremendously by using this machine.  His set up and consistency with making solid contact with the golf ball have improved greatly.  Is it completely accurate, No.  For iron shots, it does a darn good job.  I have been using it and playing for roughly 2 months.  I am not trying to make changes, but just swinging and hitting shots and having some fun doing it. 

 

I was on a system a couple days ago doing a club fitting and the shots I was hitting on it were exactly like the shots I was hitting on the optishot. 

 

Again, depending on what you are trying to do.  For me it was get my son more excited about golf and have some fun in the winter.  It has accomplished that and more, especially if you do not have thousands to spend...
