Its only $2500 now. Sub $1500 and they might get me to buy one.

So how accurate is one of these scopes?

Not sure. I would think that clubhead speed and ball speed are all pretty accurate. Vertical and Horizontal launch should be very accurate. Not sure how much spin is. As for the distance, carry, roll, height of the shot, those are all equation driven. So there is some error there, but it can be pretty accurate.

According to the specs page, it doesn't measure much.

 

 

I want path, face, aoa, spin, etc...

 

What is Lateral Deviation?

 

Also, not sure how accurate this is, but the Xi model measures more than it displays - what's preventing someone from hacking more info out of the unit?

That's what I would want too. I went to a golf bar that had about 25 simulators and they gave feed back on path, face, aoa, spin, etc..and it was awesome. I have terrible clubface control!

I agree. Not sure how they can justify a nearly a 8500 dollar price drop just by turning off some functions. Unless the Radar isn't the same as the X2 and can't measure the other data. I am sure

A voided warranty.

I found a photo of the Xi+. I can't vouch for the accuracy of this, but:

 

Xi - Ball data, no spin, no club (besides CHS) - $2500
Xi+ - Ball data, Club Data, some d-plane - $5000
X2 - Everything - $10000  

 

If the info on the Xi+ is accurate, I was thinking, what if you get 3-4 guys and split the price and share?

Yea looks like they turned off some functions, though I think the X2 is a larger design.

Yes they did turn off some of the functionality. The X1 is basically for the consumer, the X2 for PGA professionals and fitting. The x3 is the full monty.

Hello

 

Have you cheked this review ?

 

http://www.rotaryswing.com/golf-lessons-blog/trackman-iiie-vs-flightscope-x2-2013-review/

 

  1. That review is from 2012.
  2. In our testing the FlightScope was way, way more accurate than the Trackman. The difference between our testing and Chuck Quinton's? Ours was done with a Phantom camera so we could accurate measure things (AoA was the primary focus). The FS returned better data every time.
  3. The TrackMan doesn't work as well outdoors, off grass.
  4. Henri Johnson will show up with a Phantom camera and do side by side testing of any serious buyer. He's willing to do this because he has faith the FS will show better data.

 

We owned a TrackMan, free and clear. We sold it to get an X2 and have been very happy with it since.
