Arccos and Ping

Recommended Posts

 

I’m not sure if this is old news or not nor if I am posting this in the appropriate place but I was on the Ping website today and saw something quite interesting. As many of you know, Ping and Arrcos have begun to partner up recently and they are offering a promotion. Ping is sending out 14 Arrcos sensors to qualified owners of Ping equipment for free along with a 90-day trial of the Arrcos System. There are 30+ qualifying products and it is easy to sign up. Shipping is free for the sensors and you can cancel anytime within the 90 days. I have been interested in trying Arrcos and this seems to be the most cost-effective way to do it. Again, if this is old news or in the wrong place, I apologize but I wanted to pass the info along to my fellow Spies.

It’s better to hear something twice than not at all! Thanks

Anyone have a full set of qualifying clubs but not want sensors? Let’s make a deal.

In all seriousness even though it’s just a 90 day trial that’s a sweet deal for them to extend back a bit.

Just ordered mine. Bought a full set of G410' in July. Followed the link from Golf Spy MPR and it worked perfectly. Took about 5 minutes to download the app and order the sensors. I've tried GPS devices in the past and always returned to my rangefinder, so this will be an interesting trip to take.

So is there anyone here who could compare Arrcos to Shot Scope? Perhaps I should post that question elsewhere.

It may not be a  widely popular opinion, but  I've had both and in my experiences arccos was/is miles better in.  I may have written a detailed comparison in the arcoss thread a while back.  In short my  big pet peeve was the need for a practice swing in order to "activate" the shotscope and it missed several shots.   Editing is much easier for arccos as well.

The one advantage shotscope had was tracking putts, it's system is better than arccos in that regard.   But I think there is an update coming for arccos that should improve that.

I almost PMd you but thought others might be interested in this.

How does arccos capture proximity to the hole?

It worked for me and the Blueprints. Can’t wait to give this system a try.

Another testament as to why I love PING and their customer service.

Best I can tell it doesn't really.  It's been a while since I've played a round with the sensors, they can't keep up with my club changes...Ha

But say you hit your 7 iron approach into the front part of the green, with the flag in the middle so say a 30 foot putt.

Once you make your first putt, it records that stroke,   say you come up 2 feet short, you have to putt it in to record it.  There is a plus minus indicator on the screen for number of putts.  so it should read two putts, and the total distance of the two and it will know how far your first putt was based on where your second stroke took place.

As I said, it's definitely not as accurate as Shotscope where you tag the flag location at the end.

from what I've heard and read the iOS version of the app is WAYYYYYY better than Android.

it might behoove you to get a cheap iphone, throw in an old and outdated SIM card and use that strictly for Arccos....can always try Android but if it acts up this is a secondary option vs giving it all up.

I wasn’t sure if anyone else had posted this yet, but PING is giving away a set of Arccos sensors to current customers that own any of 30 different clubs that they list on their website, or to anyone that purchases a PING club.IMG_3711.JPG

This is awesome! I just signed-up to receive them! Thanks!!! Not sure $100 is worth it, but we’ll see.

I have Shotscope but have ordered these to try.

I had the original Arccos product but stopped using it because you had to carry your phone in your pocket to work with the sensors and that ended up being a no-go for me.

With the Shotscope you have a GPS watch that also detects the shots. Their recommendation to take a practice swing was a non-issue for me as I always take one.

HOWEVER, after ordering these I saw a tweet indicating that if you buy the Arccos sensors you get the App for FREE. PING/Arccos is giving away the sensors but after 90 days you have to subscribe to the Arccos app for $100/yr. Are the Arccos sensors useless without the Arccos Caddie app or is there a version of the Arccos app that doesn't use the Caddie info?

Are the Arccos sensors useless without the Arccos Caddie app or is there a version of the Arccos app that doesn't use the Caddie info?

I'm sure someone who currently has Arccos can comment for sure but my understanding is that you must have the app in order to use to see/use any data from the sensors which makes the app imperative. That said, I figure I have 3 months to determine whether I want to spend $99 a year or not. If I don't find it worth the money, I will cancel the subscription and I have lost nothing.
