FlightScope Mevo+


Recommended Posts

  • Moderator

There's a thread in Golfwrx where someone mentioned a Mevo 2 is in the works and that you'll be able to trade up, price point is higher, dunno what the new device will track in addition to the current data. Again, this is secondhand info being overheard, I did a search for Mevo 2 on social media and the internet, nothing.

Update — you can get one here:

So something more similar to a SkyTrak? I'll be interested to see this.

mevo seemed cool, but i had seen that you had to put little stickers on the balls to get the spin rate. which is obviously pretty shitty unless you have the ability to hit your own balls and retrieve them. or can you just hit them into a net? either way, not a great option for those who use monitors at the driving range.

You didn't really need the stickers.

Will the Mevo + still setup with a down the line view like the first Mevo?

With my son being a lefty and me being a righty, I don't want to have to change the location of the launch monitor when we both use it, which I believe is what we would have to do with a SkyTrak?

It’s still radar so yes.

Seems like something I’ve always wanted, but how much use would I really get out of it? Maybe two, three times a year? Not worth the cost considering I can use the Trackman at my gym for like $50 an hour.

Really? Only two or three times per year? Why not "twice a week hitting into your net?"

I'll have more on this very soon.

When I do a Google search for Mevo + a camera comes up!   Makes me wonder who has the rights to use "Mevo".    I guess it doesn't matter to me but seems odd.    The ability to play courses may make this worthwhile.

If I’m working on a specific piece, do I really need to have the radar data? Half the time I’m not even hitting full shots.

I always looked at that information more as something to check once in a while, like at the start of the season I need to work on X, then midway through I can check my numbers again and see how I progressed, etc.

There’s the very real possibility I’ll be looking at numbers every time I practice and start trying to do too much, losing sight of what I should be focusing on. Oh, and it costs $2,000 😃

Fair enough.

I think you're on the edge, though. You're "serious" but maybe just outside the handicap range where you'd want to keep an eye on some numbers often.

And with winter… because I think a 10-15 in a full-time-playing location could get use out of it.

I kind of feel that way, too. Trying to talk myself out of this purchase for now. Maybe next year.

Yea, if I had the space to practice in my house I’d probably get it.

    • Correct. The R10 is much closer to the Mevo, not the Mevo+. Yeah. 😄
    • At $300 and requiring only 3’ for a radar unit, I don’t think it’s going to be very accurate. So no, it’s not going be dominating the Mevo market anytime soon. There are those of us who didn’t get the Garmin R10 at a fraction of the price of a Mevo+ (and Pro package) because of questionable accuracy. Hell, the gifs on their site show people “playing” the simulator without even hitting a ball. It’s basically a video game at that point.
    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
