New Optishot Ball Flight

Recommended Posts

Looks pretty nice! Although... 6K. SkyTrak is much cheaper. It would be cool to do a side-by-side it get a comparison of accuracy.

Precisely. I have an OptiShot, so when I saw this announcement, I was intrigued. But that price makes no sense at all. I suppose they're trying to horn in between the GC Quad/TrackMan level and the SkyTrak level, but there's no real space there in accuracy, as far as I have read.

 

There's absolutely a market space to get greater accuracy in the sub-$1,000 space, but I can't see this being a market success for OptiShot.

I have an Optishot as well and frankly, it's a fun video game, and that's about it.

 

I don't understand this price point. How is this better than SkyTrak?

 

If I'd known about the Mevo, I wouldn't have bought the Optishot.

This tracks ball flight as well as club data. This is a good price for what you get, however it is not in the price point for most people. Like myself I would rather do SKY track. This does come with several course at no price increase.

I'm looking to eventually do a decent home simulator setup but I along with a lot of you don't want a video game.  I want accuracy.  I know people roll their eyes when I start talking about it because in my mind theres a huge deal if I'm being told a 9 iron is going 161 carry when its really carrying 154.  I want the most accurate thing I can afford to put this all together.  Its probably a pipe dream because I expect trackman accuracy at the 2k-5k price point but I'm not sure I'll get it.  Maybe several years down the line we can pick up a trackman from 2017 in the year 2021 for 2500 LOL  maybe I'm dreaming but come on folks there has to be a teacher out there or a club or a business that wants to upgrade and maybe they sell theirs for 15k to some guy who uses it for a year or so and sells for 10k and then a guy who uses it for several more years and then I'll step in and buy it for 2500 LOL   I know I know keep dreaming.  For thousands of dollars I'm expecting quality - put it this way - in the 90's if I told you in the year 2010 you'd be able to buy a device that fit in your pocket, sent email, made phone calls, jumped on the internet like a computer, could print wirelessly to a printer, could access anything your heart desires with all the known information that man has created and it would only cost 599 - you'd think I needed to go to the loony bin - well in my opinion the tech packed into a smart phone far out paces the tech packed into a launch monitor - the price must come down in years to come - would you want to sell 100 units at 25k (2.5mill) a piece or 15,000 units at 2500 a pop (37.5mill)?  Just sayin

      Took about a year, but now have officially flipped my bag for the first time. Year before, I began inundating myself in golf knowledge and equipment. Learned how the swing path and club face work together, how to shape shots and have made great progress. Now I know exactly what I'm doing, and most often know why. So far I've seen my handicap drop significantly, (15-17 down to 5-8). Technically at this point, I'm a 5 handicap, but that was one score out of 5 (5, 18 hole rounds. I've played quite a bit of 9 hole rounds) and I believe I'm closer to an 8 realistically. But maybe I'll be lower and near a 5 this year with thMP-18e clubs in my bag fully updated and have more experience with each club.
      Updated my driver and 3W shaft as well after getting them last year and I think that will be a game changer and lower my scores by hitting more fairways. Drastically improved my iron game with getting fitted and buying Mizuno MP-18 mixed set. Can shape my shots and get very consistent distances, so I'm pretty excited for this year. Wedge game improved quite a bit too and now have rounded out the SM6 set completely. Also really excited as I've been rolling the new Taylormade TP Black Copper Juno nicely in the basement, and getting very consistent rolls and forgiveness. Never have really been excited about a putter, but the black copper is sexy, and it performs.
      Looking to get on simulators a few times this winter, heated driving range a few times, a big golf show to attend, Taylormade demo fitting, and plently of swinging and putting in the garage and basement. Looking forward to early spring and am optimistic for my best golf yet.

      Trying to not get overly excited for Jan golf trip and hoping that mother nature doesn't deposit her first snowstorm on us in New England around my departure date.
