Like what?

Gears? I'm thinking more a device I never heard about though, so many products out there. Something in my blind spot.

So it has something to do with Fusion Technology, watched a video and FT combines 3D, radar, and image processing abilities. To do what, I don't know, not familiar with X3.

Looked at the X3 page, the X3 uses the fusion technology, so guessing some of the features on the X3 are going to be on the M+? If I had more time, I'd cross out the M+ data points and just guess from which ones are left over.

Or maybe it's more accuracy?

Or maybe chipping/pitching related.

It's early and I'm still processing, but for a total of 3K, that's device plus the upgrade, it looks to me like a good deal if the tracking is accurate.

Looks cool, and at least it's not a subscription, but $1000 for the upgrade is not chump change.

No, but considering you’re getting what a $20k unit can give you for $3k, it’s an absolute steal.

Totally - I wasn't doubting the value. Mevo+ is already at the top of my list for next year's golf purchases, but not sure if I'll early adopt the pro package if/when I do buy a Mevo+. However if the reviews are good, I will certainly give it heavy consideration.

I'm in the same boat, will be getting the Mevo+ next year when my new house is done for my garage simulator setup, but probably will have to wait on the Pro Package for at least a few months, maybe until I get a bonus at work or something.

I can get plenty of value and use out of the regular Mevo+ in terms of both helping improve my game and just to have fun with friends, I'm not sure if the added data points are going to be worth an extra $1,000 to me or not.

I was on the fence about it last year and I’m still on the fence about it now, but I’d definitely get the upgrade if I do get it. The stuff they added is really the data I’m after for my own practice, so if anything yea it’s more expensive, but it’s also more attractive to me now.

lets say I am more interested in the potential to go to the driving range, set something up quickly and easily and play a simulated round at the driving range...will either Mevo monitor do that on a phone?

 

 

To answer questions I anticipate, I don't run with an ipad or lap top so those aren't really options for me and with a game room and music room, convincing the wife I need a golf room has not proven fruitful...and when it comes to the numbers, while I know the basics...I want an inside out swing, etc, the smash factor and angle of attack and so forth are beyond my technical knowledge or interest so it might be the, on this site, oft-maligned Garmin R10 would be better as an overpriced simulator toy, just looking at options; would prefer the better quality Mevo if it does what I want, particularly since the alignment issue I keep hearing about is something I will struggle with

I wouldn't say I'm great at reading the numbers off a launch monitor, but I do feel like the path, face, HSP, VSP, low point, dynamic loft numbers are a big deal. I dunno what curve is and the difference between that and shot shape nor do I know what the acceleration and speed profiles are.

The livestream also mentioned official recommended external battery packs because if you get one that provides too much juice, you can fry the M+'s chips. Also that they anticipated limited supplies and bought extra and have 3K M+ in inventory.

    • 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.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
