Will there be a review posted soon or is there one already that I missed?

Not necessarily "soon" but before the end of March, yes.

Have you had hands on time with it yet? Also do you have pricing info?

Yeah, plenty. It's $2k. They've been shipping them for weeks now.

Just look at the start line of the ball compared with the curve.

Or the start line (horizontal launch angle) and the spin axis if you're indoors (or the drawn "curve").

Assuming somewhat centered contact.

The Mevo+ is the first "affordable" launch monitor that has piqued my interest, because previously my main hesitation towards buying one was how limited the data you received from the device ended up being. Spinrate is nice to know, but it's substantially more useful when you can also see either the ballflight or the spin axis. Since none of the previous affordable options included a spin axis they felt primarily limited to practice at a full driving range so you could see the ballflight.

At a driving range the previous devices feel a little limited to me since I can measure distances myself and am able to determine if spin or launch is too high/low based on trajectory, but the specific data is always nice to have. Adding spin axis, however, means I can get all the information I want when hitting into a net at home. I have enough information to determine what the ballflight will look like and whether I'm making the progress I want to make, without having to go to the driving range to confirm that my feel corresponds to the correct ballflight.

I'm looking forwards to seeing if competitors develop similar products and are able to continue to drive prices further down, because this feels to me like the right balance of enough data to appeal to most golfers while excluding data that would confuse them and drive up costs. If you know what the ballflight looks like and you can take videos of your swing, qualified instructors can help you fix the swing details (club path and face angle) that this doesn't measure to produce the result you want to see.

Fully agreed.

Did you post this and I missed it? Seriously thinking about a somewhat portable launch monitor(sim is nice)/net/mat set up for my yard while all of this is going on.

No, sorry, the whole COVID thing changed that. No plans to fully review it now, for a few reasons.

I love mine, though. There's the review for now. I can answer specific questions, too.

I was considering purchasing a Mevo, but I'm really intrigued by the Mevo+. I take a lesson once a month, and have 1 hour practice session 2X a month at the same facility as my lessons with GC4 launch monitors. I also practice daily, usually in my backyard hitting balls into a net, so if I did have a Mevo+, it would likely get daily use.

How useful would you estimate the Mevo+ be (i.e., seeing ball flight data every day versus 2-3X monthly) for someone with my ability, versus just the Mevo?

I figured that might have been the case. If I end up getting a practice set up the net and mat will come before a monitor anyway. Just curious.

Well, it's tough to say, because I generally don't try to make value judgments for others.

I could elaborate, but it'd just be a bunch of talking that says what I just said. About how some people value having numbers more often, others care about seeing the ball flight and know how they're hitting it, blah blah blah. It'd all be true, but it wouldn't tell you anything, it'd only just be me talking about why I couldn't really decide for you, because I'm not you. 😄

Fair enough, and actually got me to really think about what I need at the moment 😄

I guess the way I look at it is, not including tax, the price difference between the Mevo and Mevo+ is $1500, and perhaps that amount can be invested elsewhere in my golf life in a more beneficial way. Money is not the sole driver here, but I'm not Scrooge McDuck, so it's a consideration.

Thinking out loud here, I could use the Mevo vs Mevo+ difference in cost to double the amount of instruction I get annually, and maybe get a full driver and putter fitting with anything leftover. I'm not a numbers geek, but I do like the the launch monitor feedback in lessons and practice sessions because it tracks improvment and regression for certain things. However, I am most focused on making consistent contact, which I can do pretty well with just a mat and net, and maybe something like a Mevo to show ball speed and other basic metrics.

I guess I'm more of a Mevo case right now, but the idea of simulated golf is appealing with all the courses around me closed for the time being.

Does the Mevo+ produce a display that can easily be used to map shot zones? Or do you have to take the individual shots and map it out yourself?

    • You are overthinking it. You are basically going to have such similar shafts by hard stepping the 6.5 or softing the 7.0 (both in flex and more importantly in weight), that if you can hit one, you can hit the other or vise versa. You will get much more definitive results from bending the lofts to adjust trajectory.  You would really need to move into a different weight class before I would say you would see any noticeable difference over the long haul between shafts.
    • Coincidentally, this article came out and lists a lot of what we say in LSW and so on. Scoring lower again involves: Not taking penalty shots. Not taking doubles or, when you get better, not making a bad bogey. (You're still going to make some bogeys.) Playing for pars and letting the birdies happen is tough for people to get. Understanding where to miss the ball and fitting the "better side" into your shot pattern/Shot Zone. The last part answers your question of sorts: If you can develop a ball that only curves or misses one direction, that's a pattern. You can play a patterned Shot Zone much more easily than you can play a "fern" Shot Zone (where the shots have a root and then spread out in all directions from there, two dimensionally, like a fern). I'm not sure what "fighting" a one-way miss means - if the vast majority of your shots are, for example, missing left, either open the face to take off some of that left miss/curve or just aim right and play it. If there's trouble left, aim WAY right. The smart-player's guide to dropping 10 shots — guaranteed Improving at golf doesn't require hours of range time. Recreational players just need to take advantage of the stat-based scoring opportunities out there.    
    • Things like this are why I initially brought the question up. I have nowhere to try these on. I spoke with FootJoy and they stated that you buy according to your normal waist size but that those sizes are made with the assumption that they are going over the top of your golf clothing and are sized a bit bigger
    • Everything. I didn’t post the swings before I started working on stuff. Long, across the line, lots of moving parts.
    • I’ve been driving the ball a lot better the last two rounds. I’ve had drives range from 220 to even 260. Yesterday I had an uphill drive of ~250. I’ve worked on ball position having the ball at my front big toe. This has been taking off spin and launching higher. I lower the loft on my driver as well. Below is a practice from two days ago. Long irons haven’t been as good though. I am missing left with too much draw. I will work on ball position there as well. Short irons have been DOBA, especially with 3/4 swings. Yesterday my 3/4 9 iron and PW were spot on target. I feel like I am not hitting down enough on the long irons and coming in shallow, but this swing is better.
