You've been an on and off Arccos user in the past, correct?

And larger question to the competitors - Android or iPhone? Or did everyone go with the Link?

Hoping people went with the Link. I have been using it a few months, and despite a blue moon not picking up GPS it works wonders!

I went with the Link, but I will be doing a few rounds with my iPhone as well for comparison.

To my knowledge, the link was included with everyone's Arccos package. (I could be very wrong on that assumption). If that’s not the case, I did indicate to have the Link included. We will find out shortly!

That's good feedback, I'm just not sure I want to shell out $130 for the Link plus renew my subscription (which is due in two weeks). With the money for those two things, I can nearly get four lessons or put some money toward my winter Skytrak setup.

I had very few issues with Arccos during #CC4, but it has been very hit or miss this year so far. It doesn't help that Android is a moving target of security/compatibility and there are a huge range of devices to support, but I'm using the same Samsung S10e as last year. I've noticed way more erratic GPS behavior and it really makes me question the value of "knowing my distances" when I'm not certain the shot was actually detected near where I hit it and not when I pulled it from the bag or when I put it back in.

The GPS inaccuracy isn't likely Arccos' issue. But, I'm stuck in limbo trying to decide if paying $100 to renew is worth it. I've looked at getting an old iPhone, but they're not significantly cheaper than the Link.

I tired Arcoss and it worked good but the added fees for each year and needing my phone led me to try Shot Scope which has gone pretty well actually, but it does have less functionality currently.

Yup last year I played about 5 rounds with Arccos so I will just pick up where I left off.

I will be using my iphone and have an apple watch, but will be primarily using the Link they are sending everyone

I know you didn't ask me, but I've had a nearly flawless experience with the iphone.  The Arccos FB page seems to be really helpful for issues.

Interesting...I got a free set of Arccos sensors through Taylormade since I ordered a driver for myself and a hybrid for my friend using my account. I placed the order through the Arccos site with a link through TM on 4/12..

image.png.7e346dd0f31c198eb7df3c674b84603c.png

This is as of today..

I have the Shotscope V3 and will most likely stick with it because I don't want to have to pay a subscription fee to use Arccos. Plus I have an Android phone which based on the feedback here is not as good at picking up the sensors as an iPhone so I would need to buy the link on top of it. WIthout the subscription, what do you get out of the box? Any shot tracking capabilities at all?

I believe the full set of sensors comes with a 3-month subscription. You can decide after that if you want to pay for the subscription moving forward.

Was looking to see if you had your irons yet... not quite on those or did I miss the post?  Still very curious about the OL irons and wedges.

No irons yet.  I think they might be scheduled to ship next week from what I recall.  I am looking forward to them.

However, and I hate to say this, I am loving the Srixon ZX5/ZX7's  right now more than any iron I have in recent years 😱

At first it bothered me, but I'm totally used to it now, although I'm still not immune to putting it in my back left pocket after checking the GPS since that's where it goes pretty much all the time I'm not on a golf course.

Funny.  Been reading about them and just so many positive reviews... but people always seem to go back to the progressive iron and wedge setup.  Stuff like this. https://pgapappas.blogspot.com/2020/09/cobra-golf-forged-tec-one-irons-review.html?m=1
