Yeah I was following along here and debating on picking the H4 up, but out of stock for me as well.

I was just able to place an order for the H4. I did get an error message that it was out of stock, but it allowed me to check out and place the order. I have a confirmation e-mail.

I'm sure it will be fine, it's just strange. I put it on a credit card, so I can always dispute the charge if worst comes to worst. Not really worried about that though.

Okay, it showed out of stock for me too. But after I selected that I was in the United States it showed it as in stock.

So, I ordered one. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I forgot to charge the H4 last night. We’ll see how many holes it lasts this time.

Ok so it charged 20% in the 30 minutes I was home which probably would have been enough for the round at 46%, but then I realized I could charge it in my car on the way to the course so it worked out fine.

I ended up over 65% so it looks like it charges about 40% per hour.

The Shot Scope tags have a slightly longer screw than the Game Golf ones. I’m hoping they’ll stay in the PURE grips better because of that.

I noticed on a couple of shots from the other day that they do pop up out of the grip and I had to screw them back down. I can’t say for certain if the longer screw on the Shot Scope tag keeps it from popping out completely like my old GG tags or if I’m simply noticing when they first start to pop out with these because I’m tagging the unit to the club. Might be the former because at least one of the times I noticed the tag was loose after I hit my shot.

For those with PURE grips who are concerned about tags popping out, I think silicone might still be the way to go.

Hey all.  So I just removed the first of my GG tags from a club.  Here is the result.  Will this be a problem when I get the Shot Scope?  I guess I'm asking if I have to regrip my clu bs for the tags at this point (grips are otherwise in good condition -- if I were just going from GG to nothing, I'd be fine with the grip the way it is).

I wouldn't guarantee anything but I believe silicone, as @billchao suggested would be your best option.   When I removed my GG tags there was no tearing like yours, just silicone residue.  Then again, I don't have pure grips.

I've found it charges very quickly. I forgot to charge it last week and plugged it in in the pro shop while I warmed up, it easily charged enough to handle 18 holes.

The only complaint I have, and it's a small one, is it takes A LONG time to find the GPS satellites. I missed tagging my opening drive a couple times due to this issue. You can't flip it on as you walk to the tee box. For a comparison today, I set it next to a Bushnell Phantom 2 and a Garmin Approach G80 and they both were able to find the satellites and were ready to go in less than half the time as the H4. And forget about it if you are playing a course you have never played before, it took forever to pull up the two courses I played in Mexico. I turned it on as I drove to the first tee and I missed my drive and my second shot.

Other than that little gripe, I love this thing. So easy to use, so convenient, great data, and very accurate.

You probably play the same course frequently, too. I do it a few minutes before.

Today at Mid-Pines it took about two minutes. But at Mid-South (after we played Talamore in the morning), it took literally 15 seconds.

If you change areas, it has to do more work. But that's why I said the first thing.

I also didn't load anything on my phone when I traveled. Not that you had to with GAME Golf, either. And with GG you only got blinking lights to let you know if you were on the course and GPS locked. This at least tells you on the screen.

    • With the testing results thus far it looks like Red Bull really just decided, "Yeah, the zero pods were actually a good idea but Mercedes is just stupid." Both Newey and GP (Max's race engineer) were grinning ear to ear as Max went out and smashed every other time on the board by nearly a full second despite not being on a qualifying simulation run.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.
