2018 Official Forum Member Review - Arccos 360 w/ Caddie 2.0


Recommended Posts

First round with Arccos was a huge success!

No issues with tagging, but when I reviewed my round after...the stats were interesting to say the least. It had me at a 26 handicap for approach and max handicap for chipping, and a +4.6 for putting. I consider myself a pretty horrible putter, so I knew something was fishy.

Just reviewed the data and found out why -- some of the flag locations were off, and my proximity to the hole was incorrect on a few holes. It had me having holed out from 40' and a total of 150' in putts in total for 9 holes. After adjusting some of the pin locations and guesstimating how far my holed putts were (the 1-putts) it is a little more accurate. I didn't 3-putt today, but I think 0.1 is still generous, but this is a sample size of one 9-hole round so we shall see! Thanks reviewers and everyone that contributed to the thread, I wouldn't have pulled the trigger if the feedback wasn't so positive.

Happy to hear that you had a good experience in your first round. As you play more rounds, your handicaps will adjust and average out. 

I haven't played with the function yet, but adjusting pin locations can be done on the course from what I read. I'm not sure if you are a person that wants to tinker with those things in round or after.

Great to see it is working out for you. I can't wait to get out and start golfing... Hopefully next weekend and hopefully going to see some progress with arccos!

I'd rather do it on course, so hopefully it's as easy as it says.

Apparently you just stand next to the flag and press the flag with the crosshair button and it'll adjust? The less I have to do at home the better. I'm playing tomorrow I'll try it out.

Phone! I actually didn't mind it which was kind of surprising. I might hold off on link since I read that Arccos is supposedly working on something for wearable android devices. Found it on social media and I can't find it or I would link it for you.

Not sure if you are using iOS or Android, but what I have found is that marking the pin location on the green takes just a little too long. Plus if you are playing with other people it looks funny standing next to the flag with your phone out and trying to mark it's location. What I do is when waiting to hit a shot somewhere I will go through and mark the pins for say the 3 previous holes. There is a little more adjusting than I would really like but the statistical feedback is worth it IMO. Play around with a couple different ways to mark and figure out which way works for you.

That's actually a good idea, then it'll be fresh in my mind as well

Just pre-ordered the Link for Arccos. Don’t need it, bu5 it will give me the option to not have iPhone in pocket.

 

Thus, I guess you could say I am going to continue using* Arccos after almost a year of activity.

They updated the app where you now can wear an Apple Watch and have your phone in your bag or cart. I’ve used it for 3 rounds and it works better than having your phone in your pocket (don’t miss shots like the phone does)

I pre-ordered the Link as my iWatch is a Series 1 and does not have gps.

Anybody used the Siri shortcut "add flag", this should work better. i.e 1 button press without looking at the phone.  But you look stupid enough hovering around the hole with your phone never mind talking to it.

Is this an old man thing?

Haven't tried that yet, but will make sure to do so when the weather finally allows.

I'm staring at a weather forecast of rain for the next 5 days....

I've tried "add drive",  it is positional aware so it worked OK when I was on hole 1, it add the drive on that hole from the mapped teeing area to the next detected shot. On another round I realised on the 2nd tee that the drive was missing on hole 1, I tried  to add a drive on hole 1 by selecting the hole but it just gave me a new dive for hole 2.

Don't know if Link will allow for Siri Shortcuts, I really want to mount my phone on my trolley and leave it there. Currently my phone is in my front left pocket and with a glove it is awkward to get my hand in the pocket so I end up using my right hand to move the phone to the top of my pocket.

I'm probably going to buy link now that I got a full round in. The battery drain is just too much. I have a nearly 3000 mAh battery and it took it from 95% to 25% in one 4.5hr round.

I'm going to confirm that I can edit shots with Link as I play and if so, I'll buy it. I read some battery life tips from Arccos and it says turn Bluetooth off? I thought that's how it tracks the shots, even with the Gen 2 sensors?

That's interesting. I have had the exact opposite results, way more misses than with just the phone. I stopped using the watch feature although I did like it it was just missing too many shots.

I haven't had the battery drain but I am using iOS and know you are using Android. 

As far as bluetooth I haven't turned my off but I do know that you can't use another bluetooth device while using Arccos. So one would think that it is used to track shots.

I think this is proof that putting is way harder than we think it is and our expectations are not in the realm of reality.

I played an after work 9 today to work on establishing my baseline for the Cobra Connect Challenge. It was my first time using the updated app, and I am blown away!

The only shots that the system did not pick up were my tap in putts. The new feature of moving the flag helps so much with tracking the distance of your putts.

When I went to pick the ball out of the cup, I would bring out my phone, tap the green flag icon, and the choose move flag to my current location. Super simple and did not negatively impact the pace of my play.

Kudos to Arcccos for the upgrades to the system. Can’t wait to play more rounds to collect more data to work on lowering my handicap.

I didn’t get a chance to use the Siri feature as I didn’t set it up yet. I was trying to beat the dark and just adjusted for the flag using the “move flag to current location” feature.

Once I set that feature up, I’ll test it out.

Oooooo lookie. Didn't see this in the update notes but check out this here:

That was one of my biggest gripes before that Arccos appeared to be penalizing your approach for punch outs. This was an automatic mark, I didn't have to add it.  Now they just need to add a strokes gained pitching out sideways stat.
