I received my Pumas a couple days ago!  🙂 

They're the Ignite PWRADAPT Caged. 

Thanks so much to the MGS Forum mods, Puma, and Cobra.

First impression is they're a pinch heavier and stiffer than my previous version Ignite PWRADAPTs.   Though, those have been well broken in over the course of a year and change. 

I just realized while watching the vid, they say "waterproof".  That will probably be the biggest upgrade 🙂

Once again, thanks.  I had fun dressing up!  😂

TEAM HAMMER ARCCOS REVIEW

364717885_ScreenShot2020-08-19at5_27_35PM.png.f79aa90b3979a5a2b795f53d93ae01fd.png

 

 

Let me start my review of Arccos by telling you that I’m a bit of a Luddite. You’ve probably already guessed that since I lack the video production & graphics skills of our younger competitors in this challenge. Considering I can barely operate my IPhone, taking on Arccos and relying on it for strategy, club selection and recording of rounds was a big step for me. If you are cliff notes kinda guy/girl here is my summary of Arccos up front.

 

Here’s what I love about Arccos:

·      Overhead views of holes 

·      GPS distances to F/C/B of greens

·      Distances to hazards

·      Shot corrections-wind, elevation, etc.

·      Club distances

·      All the analytics

 

Here’s what I love less about Arccos:

·      Must manually move pin to actual locations on each hole to get correct putting distance

·      Heavily tree lined fairways causes missed shots 

·      Misses/Adds putts 

·      Difficulty identifying fairways from rough on drives

·      Manually changing a putt to chip

·      Slows me down & can irritate playing partners that don’t use it

·      Manually reviewing the round hole-by-hole, club by club & shot-by shot

 

ON COURSE PEFORMANCE: 

4-Stars.png.e66a1f5b6df74b15f9bc4b4260948242.png

The GPS data is my favorite feature on Arccos. I’ve never owned a range finder and my depth perception is horrible, so that aspect alone has helped me with club selection and reduced my shorts on approach shots by almost 20%. I have rarely found the GPS distances to be off of the actual distance. I also really like that you can get the distance to any point in the fairway or to a hazard. The overhead views of holes is also a great feature when a playing a course for the first time.

Knowing my club “Smart Distances” has also helped with hitting more GIRs, though I do take offense when I ask which club to get home in 2 on the long par 5’s and Arccos shows me the laughing emoji.

I find when I’m playing well it’s fairly easy to update each hole, but on days when I’m struggling to find a swing that works, I forget to move pins and make sure it recorded all of my strokes. This is why I created my own club sheet (see below), even though it creates redundant scoring, inevitably there are shots that need to be recorded in Arccos after my round.

936983290_ScreenShot2020-08-01at7_53_39AM.png.ad257caf5e371259efebaf4f91628067.png

I’m a fast player, my fastest round this year is 2:14, but my average round is 2:45. Managing Arccos slows me down having to move pins, add shots, add penalties, etc. When you are playing with a partner it can slow them down while you are trying to update all of the previously mentioned items. What’s funny is some playing partners love to use me for the GPS distance to the hole function, but as soon as I am changing a chip to a putt and rough to a fairway, and moving a pin it’s not unheard of to get a “come on, man”.

 

OFF-COURSE PERFORMANCE:

The tour level analytics are really what makes Arccos worthwhile. You’re getting the same information Pros use to improve their game and Arccos allows you to look at the data from a macro or micro level. You can really drill down on the data to improve the way you think through your round.  

Just to show you how far down you can drill here are some analytics on my 7-Iron. I can see what Arccos recommends as my smart distance with the club, drill down to see my max distance, see the accuracy of my approach shots and distance to the pin with this club. Then I can go deeper and see how my GIRs compare to tour pros. Ummmm, I’ve got some work to do.

MISCELLANEOUS: 

308725089_3.5Stars.png.a00fa524b2ff9a09d992abcbe652cbc2.png

I had challenges with Arccos understanding which part of the golf course is fairway and which part is rough. Case in point here is a tee shot that Arccos recorded as a missed fairway, when the ball was dead center of the short grass.

1829651307_1stTee73120.png.1f5ed5a428463f9c4fbe942640f048a3.png

On heavily wooded holes it can be difficult to pick up shots. Sometimes it won’t show the shot, but record the distance when you take your next swing & other times it will say Club Detected, but won’t register the shot. Here is what my 18thhole looks like every week. It does not see the driver or second shot, but picks it up on the 3rd shot.

1682241610_ScreenShot2020-08-14at9_11_49AM.png.c3bc405245c4f819413415c10c34a297.png

I usually use the back of my putter to pick my ball up off the green, and I’m ashamed to admit it can sometimes take me 3-4 tries to get in my putter. When reviewing rounds it’s not uncommon to find 1-2 extra putts added to a hole in Arccos due to this practice.

One thing I’ve found in using the App versus the Dashboard on your computer is that changing the data in one of them doesn’t always change the data on the other. Sometimes there is just a lag in the data from the Dashboard to the phone and sometimes it doesn’t update. My 14 in the chamber round on my phone said I shot 84, when I updated the dashboard it changed to 91, but never changed on my phone so I had to add all those shots on the App as well

PLAY IT OR TRADE IT: 

308725089_3.5Stars.png.a00fa524b2ff9a09d992abcbe652cbc2.png

I like a lot of the features of Arccos, redundant scoring, correcting missed shots, moving pins, sorting out a chip from a putt and fairways from rough, not so much. At this point I’m not sure if I will play it or trade it. By the time my free subscription ends I will have a wealth of data on my game to analyze, I will know my ranges for each club and I really don’t need it to tell me I still come up short on 40% of my approach shots. So, do I renew my subscription or just get a GPS device? What would you do if you were me?

OVERALL ARCCOS CADDIE RATING: 

4-Stars.png.e66a1f5b6df74b15f9bc4b4260948242.png

I know tech is supposed to make our lives easier, but I feel like certain aspects of Arccos have made the game more laborious to me. That being said, having a new set of clubs with no idea how far they go has made it indispensable through the Cobra Connect Challenge.

 

 

Arccos has great GPS functionality.  However, may I suggest getting a watch or a scope, and leaving the phone in the pocket?  

I find all the display that Arccos has to offer during the course of a round to just be overwhelming.  I use it as a shot tracker solely, and rely on my watch or scope for yardages. 

For my watch, I mainly keep it in the default front/middle/back numbers display, and if I'm torn over where a pin is in relation to those 3, I'll pull up the green display.  

 

I keep score of putts and strokes on a scorecard, and match it up to Arccos later.  When going through each hole in Arccos, I can most always recall every shot and add the missed ones. 

For instance, my 4i has no tracker installed, (I can't find the 14th one), so whenever it's used, I add it in after the round.  Or on the fly if nobody is behind me.

100% agree with your last statement, and it's the reason why I ditched Arccos. I loved the data, but pulling my phone out to mark pins not only felt like a chore, it was also not very accurate. Waiting to see some long-term reviews on Link and maybe I'll jump back in. Shotscope has been decent but Arccos' dashboard is far superior, IMO.

Kory I have the link on it's way from Arccos. It will not be in my review this week but I plan on writing a review after using it for an extended time. I will post that review in this thread.

Had a lot of fun today. We didn’t make it around in time for our second 18 but that was going to be a scramble anyway. But I was going to get some more pics of the course.

3 birdies and some close putts. Looking forward to my first fully restriction free round tomorrow!

More details to follow when I get better cell service.

The biggest issue I experienced on course with the Arccos system is that the tags are reliant on light to “wake up” and detect shots.

Is Arccos similar to Shotscope with respect to having to take a practice swing or two with the chosen arrow in order to wake the system and capture the shot?  I'm still struggling to remember and do that.

Just want to say that I think you all have done a fantastic job making this thread/competition so much fun to follow this summer.  I just spent 20 minutes catching up on the thread (school has started so things have been NUTS) and I cannot believe how close this thing is between @daviddvm and @B.Boston but I am still backing my dude @daviddvm for the W. 

 

@GB13 @Headhammer and @edingc it has been a pleasure to watch you all compete as well and it seems like you all had a great time!  Honestly, the best part about all of this is I feel like I got to know so many members of the forum a lot better than I did before.  Well done all! 

P.S. @Headhammer I hope you're back to 100% soon!

The Cobra team mentioned that it's a combination of light and movement. For the first hole or two it wasn't a huge deal to pull out my phone after each shot and check that it was recorded.

I did try to trick the tags by shining my phone's flashlight on them, but that didn't seem to make a difference.

During yesterday's round in perfect light conditions, Arccos missed two shots the entire round. They were both sand shots that didn't go very far at all so it's totally understandable there.

First impression is they're a pinch heavier and stiffer than my previous version Ignite PWRADAPTs.  

As someone who has both, your assessment is spot on.

I'd recommend some additional waterproofing spray just to be safe. 

Honestly, I preferred the original, non-CAGED version a little more, but they are both comfortable shoes and they look good, too.

As long as you take an extra second to get set, it will usually pick up your shots with no practice swing 😁😎

To add to what @edingc said, the system also uses your phones microphone to detect the sound of the ball being hit. Usually the system doesn’t mark practice swings (for me), because there is no sound. I’ve also had no real issues with Arccos detecting shots where I took no practice swing. I don’t get up and play at the break of dawn, so I’ve had no issues with there not being enough light.
