Hey guy, one of my best friends has been looking at buying an Optishot for at least a year now, and is getting ready to pull the trigger. Have you tried an Optishot or do you currently own one? Do you like it? What do you like or dislike about it? How is the durability?

If you could do it over would you buy it again or would you look at a different product?

Have not used one but have done quite a bit of research on simulators. Optishot is not going to be very accurate. If I remember correctly, it really only tracks the speed of the clubhead, and which direction it's pointing at impact. Something like SkyTrak is going to be far more accurate, but the price tag is also a little larger, plus you have to pay for a subscription to play real courses. IMO, save up for a SkyTrak. Superior overall.

Agree with GolfJunkie, my vote is for SkyTrak. I was just doing simulator research earlier today and I’ll quote this: “Optishot is a club tracker. Club trackers are less accurate than ball trackers, as they estimate what the ball is doing opposed to measuring what the ball is doing.”

I like the optishot for keeping a swing grooved during the winter. I like to swing irons using foam balls at the simulated range. For the rest the results are too erratic but for irons it’s awesome.

It’s more like a fun golf video game than a useful training aid.

You’re going to have several forum members attending the PGA Show this week. Maybe request some comparison info re: simulators? Also, I think there is an older thread somewhere in the archives regarding a few of the differing companies.
