As @phillyk said… I'll use them sparingly (not hitting them out onto the range, obviously!) for the times I want to get super accurate ball info.

For general GEARS usage, I bought some AAAAA Pro V1 and V1x (48 of each) from LostGolfBalls.com. When I want to put the Mevo+ or FlightScope Xi Tour/X3 up, I'll get the RCT out. Or maybe for some sim golf on the Mevo+.

They won't be hit for just general practice, if that's what you're asking. 😄 

Yeah, too expensive for that, just didn’t know if that information/feedback is super helpful for instructional purposes. Cool stuff though

It's super good for the most accurate info.

So, when just working on your swing? Not necessarily what you need. When doing a fitting or trying to measure your distances or really look at your ball flight or something? It'll be useful.

The balls will last 500 hits or more.

Received these today (a dozen ProV1).  Tried them out on the Mevo+ on the E6 Connect app, about 30 shots.  The ball flight that is displaying seems the same compared to other balls.  This was in short indoor mode (9ft ball flight), imagine that could impact the numbers a little.  Also wonder if it might read any different on the FS app (looks like you can add the type of ball you’re using)?  I’ll have to try that out later this week.

That all said, I’m no expert on the numbers or what they should look like (beyond my typical carry distances, which are being accurately reflected).  Maybe I’ll log the numbers one of these days and share.

I am just curious whether this would work accurately with something like the Garmin R10.  If so, it would be an affordable alternative because a thousand dollars would be sufficient to get a hitting net, simulator, golf balls etc.

I've heard they've made improvements to that since the launch, but… it depends heavily on what you're asking. @ChetlovesMer didn't love his R10, but that was early.

The Mevo+ makes for a great home simulator/range/etc.

I guess the idea is to see if you can get a 500 to 1000 dollar radar based simulator which works well with the RCT golf balls.  This would be a cheap alternative for home practice and a home simulator setup

I can admit when I’m wrong…

After logging a half dozen shots each tonight with a ProV1 and ProV1 RCT, I was clearly not remembering the spin numbers very well yesterday.  There’s definitely more spin with the RCT.  All the other numbers were pretty similar.  This is with a 46 degree PW.

ProV1 avg.

Carry-132.3 Distance-139.5 Ball Spd-94.4 Launch Angle-22.7 Back Spin-6,403 Side Spin-787 Height-68 ft

ProV1 RCT avg.

Carry-132.4 Distance-139.6 Ball Spd-94.6 Launch Angle-23.0 Back Spin-7,580 Side Spin-870 Height-71 ft

Yea, that’s what I meant by more spin (higher spin readings/calculations, not that the ball physically spins more).  To your second point, it consistently displayed more spin as well.  They seem to do what they designed them to do.  Now whether the spin numbers themselves seem accurate, I have no idea.

    • I recall after my session (last one of the day) you asking to hit a few drivers and the guy gave some lame (to me) excuse for not letting you do that.  Oh well.  And I've always found you to be completely truthful and forthcoming in fittings and in giving tips.
    • @Double Mocha Man didn’t say it but I was there helping the fitters. Not in the actual fitting of people but as the pro and “to make the sale.” I was helping a couple people. Some ladies were swinging way too hard and couldn’t make contact to give good readings on trackman. I saw @Double Mocha Manman hit the driver and sure he hit them well but definitely not 40yds better. The fitter also said several things on flight data that was clear he was milking it a bit. I didn’t know they said it was 40yds. I would’ve believed 5-10yds at most. Also we only use flight limited balls at this range so a couple data points were not accurate.  I’m always as honest as I can be. I’ll “make the sale” if I think it’s a good idea or if the person really wants it. I won’t lie about ball flight data or what a club can do. So that environment was hard for me.  It was also weird. I used their driver a couple times towards the end because I hadn’t hit it before. The moment I asked to test it on their trackman, both their monitors both died… maybe they wanted to just pack up and go but it still took them over an hour to leave. Makes me wonder what truly was going on. 
    • Day 209, May 28, 2022 Hit balls for 10 or 12 minutes waiting for a lesson to arrive. Shorter, wider, still just as far.
    • Good one.  Thanks.  But the problem is the guy kept pushing his drivers when (if he looked) he could see I was hitting my own driver just as far or farther.  When I went into the session I told him I was looking for more distance and at least the same accuracy.
    • It's entirely plausible that the fitter is unscrupulous, but it seems more likely to me that there was a misread on one of your baseline shots. The good news is, it sounds like you have a setup that works well for you. Maybe try yelling "boom!" When you hit your current driver to make up some of the yardage.
