That seems to be the reason people are getting varied readings and accuracy, according to the video

This wasn't the issue for me. I tried to line it up, I even used my alignment sticks to try to get it perfect. I had a terrible experience and I tried it for almost two weeks. Read my review above. As I mentioned mine was so bad that I almost think I may have gotten a "bad one". I hear there's a world wide shortage of micro-chips, perhaps my unit had to use one that was salvaged from a TI-64 Calculator?🤪

I can tell you this. I've been to the range almost every day now for the past 2 weeks and I've been using my SC300 again. MAN, is it nice to use. I never loses connection with my phone. I hit a shot that lands on or near the 150 marker, the distance shows 150. I hit one to the 250 marker, it shows 250, and so on and so on. I'll hit a bucket of 75 balls and then when I finish the device shows that I've hit 75 shots. It almost never "misses" a shot. 

I get that it doesn't show side-spin or how far off line I may be. But it never misses a shot, it never loses blue-tooth connection to my phone (even when I take video with the same phone). I can't tell you that it's GC4 accurate, but it's pretty damned good. I wrote up a thread on this thing one time a couple years back where I took it out on the course and stuck stakes in the ground where I hit from and where the ball landed and measured with my rangefinder and it was always within a couple yards, and often dead nuts. 

That's why I had high hopes for the R10. The SC300 is so good, I figured if the R10 just did equally as well and then added in the left/rightness of the shot, Bob's your Uncle. But man, I was really, I mean REALLY disappointed.

Either you got a lemon or the device isn't all it is cracked up to be.  I guess the only way to know is for some others to test it and see the results 😊

    • Absolutely.   I agree that it doesn't follow modern styles as far as pacing, but I would argue that that is a good thing. People have become far to used to constant over-sensatory movies, where action is the only thing that matters. A good story is far more interesting to me. I am 70% through the first 6 Dune books according to my kindle (start of book 5), and I thought the movie should have been less fast. There are plenty of things that were added in (not in the book) that could have been replaced with even better story telling (things from the book). I am super excited that they green lit part 2, and hopefully we will get even more. Even more will probably just be Messiah, because after that things get unexplainable in movie form. My only complaint about the movie was the casting of Duncan (Mamoa), as he we just the "bro dude relatable comic relief". I thought taking away Gurney's good laughable moments and giving them to Idaho was a disservice to all Dune fans. I wasn't impressed with Mamoa, though he was just doing what was asked of him, but the switch of character roles was like nails on the chalkboard to me. I'd also give it an eagle, but it could have been an albatross by staying truer to the source material.
    • I would explain the Nelly invite and catch a rain check with Tiger. We would rather watch a team we actually cared about anyway 🙂
    • Close to $5k for my wife and I if you include dinner and drinks after, and all the gear associated with playing year round in Washington. The kids are only $5 a round with Youth on Course. If we decide to join a club it could rise or drop depending on where we might join.
    • Day 121: Practiced indoors working on my “cupped wrist until lead arm parallel” feel. Did this for about 20 minutes with LVP camera. Worked on transition priority piece outdoors hitting Almost Golf balls to avoid pitfall of not practicing well due to poor strikes. 
    • Day 158 (29 Nov 21) - Day got away, so no stuff outside.  Putter work using the my mousetrap drill (two cat toys set up about 10’ away about 4” apart, goal to get the ball between them, I.e thru the trap).  The carpet in the bedroom rolls pretty slow, so you have to make solid contact.  Part two of the drill is to lag the ball to just past the trap, staying on the carpet and not rolling onto the hardwood floor in the hall.  Have less than 2’ of roll out, so it’s about pace.  Love the challenge this drill gives!
