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?

They're talking about making the oval kind of display, but right now you'd have to see the overhead shot view which has the lines. You could also just export the data and map them yourself in Excel or something. Distance and left/right landing spots would make a perfect little map.

Does the overhead shot view display multiple shots? If it does that and has lines for distance and lateral dispersion that's all I need. I can draw my own ovals :-D

Yea I assumed I could do that. It would just save me a step if I didn't have to.


OT, but I could never figure out what setting to get Trackman to display overhead shot view, so after a couple of sessions at the one at my gym, I still have no map. I have a pretty good idea, but nothing concrete.

Does the Mevo measure swing speed directly such that it can be used for getting this data when using superspeed trainers?

Not currently, no.

It needs the "trigger" of the ball being hit or something.

Thanks for the answer. Doesn't seem like it's a hardware limitation since the Mevos are radar devices, so maybe something that could be added through a software/firmware update, although not sure where this would fall in Flightscope's priorities. Regardless, it's not a big deal because I suppose I can just swing my driver and hit balls to quantify any speed I may gain from the superspeed program.

I doubt it's even on their radar. I can't think of a reason for them to implement that function.

True, but at least one potential customer would like to have it 😄

Doesn't really influence my desire to purchase, which I plan to make in the next day or two.

Apples to oranges, but for context, I'm an engineer in biotech, working mostly on clinical development products, and I work with many computerized devices used in the production environment. Generally, if a device has the mechanical capability to perform a function that is limited by the machine's software, the supplier will work with us to update the code to improve the functionality in a subsequent software release. So maybe there's a chance for it (probably not).

I mean they probably could if they wanted to, I just don't think they want to. That's just my uninformed opinion, though.

They might add it. No harm in asking. They indicated recently they’re considering it.

Just ordered a Mevo following the sidebar link, and used code iacas for the discount, thanks for that. Decided to save the additional money not spent on the Mevo+ for driver/putter fitting and additional lessons once the CA shelter in place mandate is loosened.

We have a Mevo purchased last fall that we use outdoors hitting into a net. Probably 15 feet or more from ball to back of net. Mevo set level about 7 feet behind ball. We use the indoor mode due to hitting into a net. My son thinks something has changed with the Mevo because it is giving 15-20 yard shorter carry distances than his average with most clubs even when he feels he struck it well.  I also observed that he is getting shorter carry than what Mevo has previously reported. He hit some wedges across the yard with the Mevo and it reported almost 8 yards shorter than what his ranger finder and stepping it off suggests. 

Any thoughts on what might be causing the difference? I know the distance won't be exact, but it just seems like there has been a change in what it reads on similarly struck balls. This change has been noticed only in the last 3 or so sessions.

After further review, I don't think there is a problem with our Mevo.  I think my son was just having a bad day.  I used the Mevo on Tuesday and it gave me my best numbers in a long time. I was kind of hoping it was cheating us on some distance, but it is really just that it is as far as I can hit each club.

Was all set to order through the link, and deal with the waiting time!! but no option for shipping to Australia on the checkout? Any reason why no option for that?

I don’t know. I’d check with them.

I received my MEVO in the mail Friday. Only delayed a week or so. I have only have had a chance to use it one time so far, and it is fantastic. With about 50 shots taken, it only resulted in 1 missed shot (VERY THIN shot that did not get airborne). 

As soon as I get some more testing with it, i will try to get an update, but first impressions are nothing but positive.

Alright, question for other Mevo Users. How do you prefer to dial in your wedges with the Mevo? The issue i am having is that i am hitting balls over my net with my 56 and 60 degree wedge due to the net having to be 8' from the ball. Are you all just saving that for the range, or have you found that you can move the net closer to the ball? I tried moving the net closer, but the mevo would not read (i had it about 4-5' from the ball). I am considering building a small stand for the net to elevate it a few more feet, but before i do that, i wanted to see if you all had any luck moving the net closer, or would have any other suggestions.

 

Thanks

    • Good and sad tales, kind of understand that. So I left Oahu that had high concerns of controlling it to an Island that had yet to get 1 case.  All was well until Wednesday 4 popped positive, Thursday 38 and today Friday 60 something. I was tested and none in my circle including an 85 year old woman has had any issues.  So the governor/mayor answer is a lockdown. How do you lockdown an island where the population is but a postage stamp on the entire island? No worries, I plan on golfing next week. I got to log a few more birdies on the 2020 birdie challenge. Aloha, iSank
    • What's the minimum camera quality will you guys consider watching? The rear camera for my phone is 2MP and the front camera is 0.3 MP. I only have one camera and a tripod, so I can't record the side and behind at the same time. Is that OK?
    • Day 50 - Hitting more balls indoors, just trying to get used to swinging indoors. 
    • We used lugloc and used it Hawaii to Scotland, Hawaii to Sydney, to Auckland and Hawaii to Pinehurst to Alabama to Hawaii, and a few west coast trips. I think when we landed in Edinburgh it took a 1/2 hr to confirm but was able to confirm at JFK, and heathrow. I have lost clubs before on a mainland trip and love seeing that the clubs and luggage are with me.    Aloha, iSank
    • Day 124.   I spent ten minutes after work hitting 7-iron shots, off a mat, into a net, real balls, indoors.
