Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Took the Rapsodo for first test on the range.    Initial thoughts 1) Setup was very easy. Pairing was a cinch. Selecting your clubs. Main difficulty was framing the swing with

Hey guys, my name is Matthew Bryant. I was extremely fortunate to be selected by MGS to have this awesome opportunity to test the Rapsodo MLM Launch Monitor. I want to thank MGS and everyone involved

I have 8 ft from ball to net. Then an additional 6-8 ft from Rapsodo to ball. Still tinkering with distance from Rapsodo to ball. See below.

Some quick thoughts and initial goals of mine for this review...

1) how accurate will the Rapsodo be hitting inside into the net compared to outside into the net or on the range. Compare mat vs grass. Some people have expressed that the Rapsodo doesn’t pick up their actual distance for their Driver.

2) Compare gapping accuracy from a Rapsodo and Trackman. Disclaimer: this all depends on how I’m hitting. Will try for multiple sessions to compare. Also use this gapping to know what I want when eventually replacing my woods with a hybrid/wood combo.

3) Ease of setup on course. How quickly can I get it setup without disrupting the pace of play. Might have to play a round by myself instead of with my regular playing partners. 

4) I noticed on the app that you can play closest to the pins/longest drive with your buddies. Will test that out. 

5) Have fun with the shot tracer on the range, but also on the course.

6) Data retention. Ease of access, breakdown of clubs, history, etc.

Can you add data retention along with ease of use.

Noted. Will be intriguing to see how easy it is to breakdown the data when I got a lot of shots compiled.

@Rchang@StrokerAce 

I was out on the range today and got to use the Rapsodo for the first time outdoors. I’ve been mainly using it indoor. Is it just me or did the ball flight tracer the video projects seem a lot lower than what the actual ball flight was? 

Starting to compile data. Hoping to have some more good weather days to where I can use it outside. 

Just for kicks and giggles. Here’s a ball flight tracer that must have gotten distracted by a bird. This one was dead straight.

Hah it does look like it. This range has 4 tiers (3 grass, 1 mat) and I’m on the top today. I’ll take a picture next time I’m there. It is just very downhill. I’ll be mainly hitting on this range and another that’s more flat to uphill.

FWIW - I'm snowed in. Got the Rapsodo delivered but haven't even taken it out of the box yet. Maybe I'll wrap it up and put it under the tree?

Hoping for the weather to turn soon.

Both of y’all need to stop putting that thought into my head... It hasn’t happened yet, hah. Let’s keep it that way. I’ll report back with my bruise when it does happen though.
