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.

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 😃

Yeah. The 2K is a big ask. But will wait and see it in action and reviews, etc.

I’m guessing the WiFi connectivity is more solid than the Bluetooth.

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.
