FlightScope Mevo - Portable Launch Monitor for the Everyday Golfer

Recommended Posts

Consumer portable launch monitor from FlightScope, who are as accurate as anyone at the premium level. I've heard this is going to be around $500, which seems like a great price to me.

Just in time for my birthday in March :beer:

That's great for the price. It will be interesting to see how much data they'll be able to pack in these less premium options over the next few years as technology and competition keeps getting better. Good for the consumer. Looks like another good bribe option for Newport cup candidates. :-)

I'd probably get one at $500. If it's more maybe not?

Sounds really good though.

Would you like the "FocusBand" also?
Sorry @Wanzo you've been Topped ... ;-)

FocusBand is a brainwave sensing system that's used to train the brain into a calmer state, which is essential for improved performance in any sport.
Although Mike seemed rather calm watching my golf game in Phoenix  :whistle:

That is really awesome. $500 might be cheap enough to get me interested. It would be great to use that at the driving range. Only negative is that it doesn't look like it tells you which direction the ball is going. I'd be 100% sold right now if it did.

If that is the price point, I will get one I think. I focus so much more at home hitting into a net than at the range.

I want one. I'm not sure what I'd actually do with it, but I want one.

Me too. If I get one, I bet it rains a lot this year with my luck!

Bite your tongue!   That is treason!

Although the year we put in a swimming pool, it was the coldest summer within years and rained excessively.

Let's not get together then. There would be an earthquake and tornado at the same time! :-P

I couldn't tell from the link, does this offer a virtual driving range like the full size FS? That would be a no brainer purchase.

Well that's just the thing, I don't actually need it for practice because I know what I am working on. I don't need a launch monitor while I'm practicing.

I'm not even sure how much I can learn from the limited information it can give me. I'd like it just to be able to get my launch numbers on my clubs, but that's not really worth $500 to me.

I want one, I don't need one, so I probably won't get one.

I could totally be wrong but i don't think it collects enough data points to simulate ball flight.  and if it does I don't think they would give that away since they have the more premium products.

Am I being too demanding that I wished it had face and path and AoA? To gain a better association between feel and real is to know when you've gotten face and path optimized and to remember those swings imho. It's cool you can use it for baseball and soccer too (never knew radar was a thing for soccer, but not surprised), plus you can pair it with the Focusband, not sure how effective that is though. Wonder if you can get the app separately, it looks like it's got some nifty features.

Now if it did have face and path AoA, the question is how much more are you willing to pay for it?

:offtopic: Was this timed for the PGA Merchandise Show? Seems like it's gone under the radar here this year.

    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
    • Maybe you should be honest with him.   Give him all the reasons you cited in your post.  Tell him you won't play with him unless he gets some decent clubs and takes a few lessons.   Also, for the sake of all of us, tell him he gets a maximum of 8 swings per hole, or maybe a maximum of double-par, and then he has to pick up and go to the next hole, because he's holding up everyone else on the course.
