that looks really cool!  looking forward to reading about it.  I go to the range about twice as much as I play so this would be something I'd get a lot of use out of!

Yep, get here early enough and I'll have it on the range before we play.

Absolutely, I should get a condition update on LP and see if we can meet in the middle sometime soon.

Yeah, same here.  I'm hoping it'll be very useful on the range, I like the different modes it has, in addition to just the practice mode, where it tells you the distance of the club you hit, the Target mode gives you a distance to hit and then tells you how close you came to that distance.

Interested to hear your thoughts, I've toyed with getting one of these for myself, but I've always wondered how accurate they are.

 

I would love to see if you can get numbers from this and compare them directly to trackman or another high end launch monitor

So a short session with it on the range yesterday afternoon.   Early reviews are mixed but definitely incomplete.

 

I used it on our grass range and started with a PW in the practice mode.  It picked up my early shots and seemed to be registering fine.   So the issue with using it on the grass range is as you know, your ball position doesn't stay the same every time because of divots.  So after a while, as my ball position started to creep in a different direction, it was missing shots.

 

By now MDGolfHacker had joined me on the range (he's a lefty so we had to put it in lefty mode  ;) )    It had trouble reading some his accurately as well, he was hitting what should have been a 105 yard shot (to a measured flag by laser) and while it did register serveral at 97 to 103 accurately.   Several of his mishits had substantially different numbers, it read one fat/chunky shot as 80 yards  :wub:   and missed several others.

 

Back to me, I was hitting the same shot and had trouble getting any of them to register.   We moved the LM back, up, a bit to the side either way, and adjust the tilt stand to be more upright.  Still missing a lot of shots.

 

Well, moved on to driver.   Here it seemed to perform flawlessly.   Didn't miss any shots, and it gave accurate (seemingly based on some laser and previous LM fittings I've had) distances and ball/swing speeds as well as smash factor.

 

I'm wondering since we were generally re-teeing the ball in the same position each time, if that was the reason it was picking it up every time.   I asked a friend who had the unit previously if he had experienced this with the irons.  He said, not the missing of shots at all.  But it did take him a bit of planing around with the distance/placement especially when hitting on grass.  But when he did find the right location, it worked every time. 

 

So hope to get more time with it today.  Maybe actually on the course on an empty hole and see what happens.

Strangely, it only liked to pick up my bad shots, which were plentiful during this range session, ha ha ha... Some of my best drives an irons didn't register, go figure...

Yeah, I forgot to tell you I was hitting the pause button when I saw the drive starting long and straight...ha

 

 I think the early drives our first time out with it, were missing.  But the second session I think it picked up all the drives from all three of us.

LOL, appreciate you letting me use it. Eye opening though as I don't hit the driver anywhere close to what I thought.. Even the irons didn't fly as far. I guess I really need those GI distance irons after all...

Yeah, thanks for posting this and taking time for follow-ups, too! Also curious about this unit for practice and for learning "my" distances better.

 

Wondering if some of the problems of missed shots are related to the ball sitting down on grass, vs. slightly elevated w/r/to the unit when the ball is up on mat?

(eg. it always sensed the ball when tee'ed high for a driver?

 

Looking fwd to learning more!

So much better results today. I actually went out to a tee box on the course that was closed. The grass is a little bit tighter on this box as its brand new Bermuda that is still growing in. Yesterday was on Bermuda grass range that is fully mature.   So to CK's point above. It could definitely have been the small difference the ball was sitting perhaps down a bit. Something to watch for on the range next.

But on to the results. Much improved today from a functionality standpoint. I hit everything from a GW to Driver and it didn't miss a shot.  Only one funky distance on a chucked wedge it said 40 yards and I stepped it off at 20.

I'll share some pics of results from a 6 iron and driver. As long as you all hold the snickers at the short knocker. Ha    As MDGH said above. Launch monitors are humbling and eye opening.

But I think an important thing to take on these. You shouldn't use them to really chase distances. But more so to learn the consistent and real distance you hit your scoring clubs. I plan to do a lot of work with this on Wedges.

As I continue to get to know the unit. I'll give recaps of each of the modes and how they are most useful (or not) whatever the case maybe.

These shots are from practice mode, where it simply tells you distance, ball speed and smash factor.

So on a slightly OT question but still related.   Looking at my swing speed above on the two clubs, there is only a 7 mph difference between my 6 iron and the driver.   That seems kinda close to me, I know I have a slower than average driver swing, for whatever reason.  I've dropped from mid 90's to mid to high 80's over the last two years.   But I would have expected a bit bigger difference.  My 7 iron was 74 mph and right at 10 yards less carry.

Interesting! Does it say anywhere, or do you know - does the thing actually track the ball through it's entire flight to measure distance (like a radar), or .. does it calculate (impute) the carry distance based on the measured launch conditions and the stated club used??

 

(I'm guessing the second one.)

a little of both. It uses radar but I believe for only the first 20 to 30 yards of flight. Then calculates like you said.

 

It annouces and displays the distance well before it lands.
