Title: Flightscope Mevo+
Post by: Shacco on December 16, 2019, 03:07:21 AM
Seems like there is a new consumer launch monitor from Flightscope in the making. Anyone knows anything about this? This might be super interesting.

Looks interesting!
I was looking at SkyTrak

I am also looking for a launch monitor/sim formmy son to play at home. Played a bit with a friend's Skytrak but was not too convinced. Played with it outdoor at the range so I could follow ball flight and compare. Some of the data really seemed suspect.

I'm surprised there is nothing to be found on the www. Seems like they really kept it under the radar. I reached out to Flightscope on Instagram but surprise, surprise, no answer.

They have club data? And spin is measured? Otherwise, still not much interesting :(

I'd love to have club data but I could live without. It says it will be able to be used for simulation so that means it should measure all relevant ball data (vert./hor. Launch angle, spin, ball speed, spin axis,...). If it does that somewhat accurately, I'll be most likely buying one
Title: Re: Flightscope Mevo+
Post by: Robbiez on December 22, 2019, 02:15:43 PM
looks like the unit will be $1995, if its comparable to a old trackman 3e, it will be worth it.  Don't need the simulation at all, but if it has all the other ball tracking and club speed tracking and impact analysis, that would be great.

Whatís Trackman 4 like?
Title: Re: Flightscope Mevo+
Post by: Robbiez on December 22, 2019, 06:01:47 PM
Trackman 4 is about 2X the price but it has dual radar and better processor and graphics....but for the basics, Trackman 3 is a better value !

Reached out to flightscope

Hi Dale. The Mevo+ will offer more data parameters and features than the mevo, as well as simulation and games. The price is set to be under $2,000 USD. Its official release will be at the 2020 PGA Show!

That is more or less what is says on the PGA show 2020 web site. Would be interesting to know which parameters are measured. But it sounds very interesting.

Do you still have to apply reflective dots on the ball to measure spin?

Been told not out for a while in UK

I was just talking to my sister and she mentioned she has some friends that are flight attendants who travel regularly to the states. Not sure they would want to bring in a (or multiple)  2000$ device(s) though. I will check with her again. Would still need someone to purchase it there most likely unless it is already available online somewhere.

I don't know why the prices vary so much. In Germany it is 1999 Euro plus VAT. If I convert 1550 £ to Euro there is a significant price difference. Maybe I should order through you, Dale.

When you go on the Mevo site, what price does it show you for pre order? When I select uk it shows me 2089,77 £ including VAT.

Got the Mevo+ just in time to kill time at home. Bought it primarily for my son as space is a bit of an issue for me swinging inside the house. But seems to work fine for him. Really fun. Can't say much about the numbers as I have only made a few swings on it and primarily chipping.

Other than it is super fun? Not really. Canít compare it to anything else cause I canít go outside to play. Iíd say generally the numbers look ok to me. Shot shapes seem to be good as well. At least comparing to what I feel the ball would do. Bear in mind that I have only swung wedges up to an 8 iron. Chipping can give you some weird results at times but you would usually notice when it is a misread. Putting is just difficult to judge on a screen. Not saying it is the deviceís fault. It is just weird to put to a target you donít really see.
All in all, very happy with it. Especially during these days when you are more or less forced to stay home, the Mevo+ keeps you somewhat connected to the game.
If you have Instagram, check out Ąmy sonĎsď page. Keenan4golf is his handle. There you can see a few vids on the Mevo+

No, just the device. I built the impact screen area myself
