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 don't mind saving up for what I want (6k is a lot) but I still need a good place with enough room where I can keep something set up. Every time I set up my net I have to take it down when I'm done.

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

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.
