That's really the biggest factor: the ability to have a small device (the Mevo can fit in a bag) that I could take the course really appeals to me. This is especially since I cannot swing a driver in my garage. Driving is easily the weakest part of my game, and I'm hoping to be able to get some intelligent feedback on it with the Mevo.

Another consideration is the ability to play sim rounds without additional fees (though it does require the purchase of a new iDevice for me).

I really have no complaints with the SkyTrak. I know there are guys who have been less than thrilled with its performance measuring the highest speed shots, but since that's not my game (and I can't use it with driver anyway) that's never been an issue for me.

Definitely! If it's not sold and shipped by next week, I'll absolutely do some comparisons.

I figured that, since I pulled the trigger on the Father's Day discount on a Mevo+, I needed to start this thread as a parallel to my SkyTrak thread. (If anyone is wondering, I am selling the SkyTrak. I'd rather sell here than eBay, so shoot me an offer!)

Why am I making this move? The biggest reason is that the Mevo+ offers the flexibility of use indoor and outdoor (the SkyTrak struggles in direct sunlight, which I experienced firsthand this spring). Our garage is big enough (I'm nearly certain) to allow the Mevo+ to work inside; the space needed for the Mevo+ inside is the biggest knock on it.

But over the next few months, I'll update this thread with my thoughts on the Mevo+, especially compared to the SkyTrak (since they're about the same price point). Currently, UPS is showing a delivery date of next Wednesday, so I'll be burning up my F5 button until the brown truck arrives.

If you have any particular questions about either device, post it! I've had two years with my SkyTrak, so I think I've got a good handle on that LM.

Also, a bit of a BST note here: if anyone has an older (but not too old) iPad or iPhone that's no longer needed, shoot me a DM. It has to be an iPhone 8 or an iPad 5th gen (both of which were released in 2017; or newer, but I'm looking for cheap, not awesome). The Mevo+ includes the option of playing sim golf on iOS, but I'm an Android diehard.

Congratulations on getting the Mevo+! I can't wait to see how it performs for you. If you have a hard time finding a used iPad or iPhone, you can pick up an 8th generation iPad on Amazon for $299. I don't think you'll have a problem finding something used, but thought I'd throw that option out there for you.

YES! 

Separately, I'll likely never pull the trigger on such a setup (and currently have nowhere in the house to fit it), I'll live vicariously through you and this thread. 😁

I like the feature set and the size but the I device only makes it a non starter. Will for sure give it a go if they ever do support Android.

Dude, me too! 😂

You're B/S/T inspired me to look at their sale, so thank you for that! I have enough space to make it work in the garage with close to 13' of flight. The only knock I could find was that it sometimes struggles on short indoor mode indoors with driver just because the flight window is short. But everything else has me super excited.

Hey Edingc, I noticed you listed your Mevo on B/S/T... I am considering the Mevo (maybe yours) what was your decision to move to the Mevo+.  What do you feel you are gaining for the additional ~$1200 in cost?  Thanks, Tim.

The short answer is spin axis/direction. It makes it possible for me to hit balls indoors during the winter and know roughly where they ended up, both in distance and direction.

The regular Mevo is great for measuring swing speeds, ball speeds and distance. But it doesn't show anything in terms of horizontal movement. So I could pound balls for hours hitting cuts or draws and never really know.

In the past I drove an hour round trip once a week to use a heated range where I could see flight. But I'm not going to do that this upcoming winter.

Thanks for the quick response.  That makes sense.  I live in Houston... there are not many days in the year that the range isn't available (this past February notwithstanding). I will say the spin enhancements on the Mevo+ is a nice metric to have.  Even at $2000 - the ability to have a shot tracer in your bag is tremendous!  Good luck with the "+".

8 feet sensor to ball and 8 feet of ball flight.   Have seen some recommendations that a room that is 16x10x10 is the minimum size.

I've kept it kinda quiet, but I pulled the trigger on a Mevo+ earlier this year.  This has also nicely coincided with the least amount of golf I've played in the last 3 years.  From the limited use I've been able to gather, you're going to enjoy it!  Most of the work I've given it has been within 50 yards, which is notoriously it's "weak" point--but it helped me dial in my short game in the shortest amount of time since I've started playing and has kept me in good shape with my limited play this year.   Side note: I've had no trouble using mine with my iPhone 6s.
