Will the club data be measured? If so, that might still work for me at home.

Face angle isn't/can't be. The ones that a radar can measure are measured. Which is most of them.

Makes sense.

I measured my hitting area. The way I typically set up my net, I have ~8’ of flight, which according to the manual online is all I need. That gives me just enough room to set the Mevo+ 8’ behind the ball if I put it right along my fence.

Your ball speed is ridiculously low, so you'll be fine with even 6'. 😉

I just got the unit yesterday and will be testing it out today. I reconfigured my net area so I have 8 feet behind and 8.5 to 9 in front to the net. I can’t film DTL in this spot, but I can switch back to the other spot for DTL video when needed.

What's the difference between explicitly measuring face angle (which the m+ doesn't do right?) versus offering path and face to path (which the m+ does do)?

That's what I thought, I thought I heard in the livestream everything was measured but I'm probably wrong.

They can't measure the face angle, so they can't actually "measure" face to path.

For example (and the numbers will be close but not exact), I remember seeing Boo Weekley's Trackman data. He had a path 1° left with a face 2° right and every ball started right and drew back to the target. That's because it was calculated, and he was actually hitting it slightly on the toe. So the twisting and the gear effect start line had it out to the right, so the face was calculated to be there, but the gear effect then had the ball drawing when you would otherwise expect to see a cut based on those numbers.

I may look into buying a stand for my Mevo+.

I've seen metal ones. I don't know if they'd interfere, but they're obviously much more solid/durable. But when I say I've seen them, I've seen them on videos, but I haven't seen where to buy them.

There are 3D printed ones, like this one:


I've created a stand for the FlightScope Mevo+ Launch Monitor. There are times where I use the Mevo+ in my simulator room and then take it out to the driving range and then back to my simulator so I wanted something...

It's $40 (skip the first post, he simplified the design).

Looks like you can buy a metal one here, although it's very expensive compared to the one you linked.

"Alignment Dock" gets you the search results, I see. Thank you.

I think I'll try the plastic ones first. $250 is a bit more than I suspected it might be. I do like that it's more of a full cage, but… then again, even $40 for a plastic printed one might be overkill.

I guess the metal doesn't interfere, really. It's not moving, and it's not in front of the device's radar path, so I don't imagine it would.

Does the Mevo+ have tripod mounting threads like the Mevo?

I use my Mevo on a tiny tripod to raise it to the level of my hitting mat, wondering if the Mevo+ can do the same.

I'm also looking at the lifetime license for this:

That it won't work without an iPad with cellular (the iPad WiFi connects to the Mevo+) is a bit of a negative, but I've asked them if using an iPhone with its cellular + WiFi could work to project to an AppleTV hooked to a projector.

I made one out of a piece of scrap wood and some screws. It’s a bit Dr Emmet Brown, but it worked for my driveway. I may refine it with bolts.

I bought one for mine awhile back it’s a little different, it has a plexiglass shield in front of it to protect the Mevo+ from bounce backs. Though I’ve never needed it yet. I think it was $45 shipped, I got it from the same guy as in the other topic.

    • Been on the diet since April 2019. I take it to prevent cluster headaches, which I've suffered from since age 13. The keto diet somehow stops neurological issues like epilepsy and cluster headaches for some reason. They don't really know for sure how. I suspect it has something to do with an inflammation reduction, at least in regards to the cluster headaches. There are also some possible benefits for alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder as it's called now. The Ketogenic Diet May Play a Role in Treating Alcoholism This dietary intervention may help with detox and cravings. The diet's not for everybody though, agreed there. I think a lot of people do great on carbs. I however definitely don't unfortunately. Keto helps me a lot.
    • It is interesting that according to the poll, more members carry a 4 or 5 iron than a 9 iron. I suspect some responders may have misunderstood the question and listed their longest iron rather than all the irons they carry. Or maybe the info is spot on.
    • These sorts of topics bring this into mind. https://twitter.com/iacas/status/1597293924875661312?s=46&t=cZN75QY39GNHB1gTixqANQ   The arms really shouldn’t do much in backswing and assuming the lower body starts the downswing, there shouldn’t be much thought in needing to shallow.  This also assumes good physical stability and mobility. Many people have poor posture and have trouble maintaining posture (most common of which are back issues). The outliers are just that. What is easiest and most efficient?
    • This diet has had gained a lot of steam over the past 5-10 years. This is a long podcast, but it goes over on how nutrition influences on mental health.  ‎Huberman Lab: Dr. Chris Palmer: Diet & Nutrition for Mental Health on Apple Podcasts ‎Show Huberman Lab, Ep Dr. Chris Palmer: Diet & Nutrition for Mental Health - Nov 21, 2022 Basically, Chris Palmer, M.D., a board-certified psychiatrist and assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, goes through why he thinks a ketogenic diet can be  beneficial to people with mental troubles. Some, sever mental issues. Right now, anecdotally, a lot of patients were able to drastically reduce the required of psychiatric drugs for their mental condition. There are currently a number of studies going on in this field of diet influencing mental states. His theory is that mitochondria issues are causing these or amplifying these disorders and ketogenic diet helps restore proper mitochondria function.   He went into a very interesting description of what mitochondria actual do in the body, and it just isn’t ATP production. They can actually activate neural transmitters in the brain. Instead of looking at them in terms of batteries, they are more like a motherboard. Also, the origin of the Atkins diet was a way to control epilepsy. Hardcore fasting, no eating at all, was known to control epilepsy going back to Ancient Greece. I’m modern times, they found that ketosis also helped out. Not saying Ketogenic diet is the best diet. He went onto say that back in the 70’s and 80’s people were eating just as bad as we do now. Yet, obesity was much lower. He believes there is some sort of environmental issue that is causing mitochondria issues, which is causing obesity over just saying it is carbs and sugar. It might be stressors on the body, which can directly influence how our mitochondria function. Lack of sleep alone can jack up mitochondria function. This is why he thinks so many kids are obese now instead of 30-40 years ago. Kids are just much quicker to become obese. So, it might be beneficial to go on a long term ketosis (6-months to 12-months) if you can. Of course, discuss with your doctors first.
