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. :-)

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.

    • The problem is not hitting different types of shots or adjusting.  The problem is conditions can vary from one foot to the next.  In the situation I was, it would well have been possible that the condition of the sand where the ball was and your feet were would be completely different.  It makes judging what you are going to do nigh on impossible. I am OK with people hitting different shots from the same situation.  That is what makes golf great. I am also OK with challenges. What I have a problem with is conditions being bad due to insufficient maintenance.  I would rather have a course with other alternatives, even if it is a hazard, than an area that is supposed to be playable, but isn't.  To give you an example, my home course is built on a paddy field.  We still get land crabs digging holes on the course.  The understandable decision, a local one, has been made to offer relief from the crab holes on the course
    • I hate it if random strangers ask me if they can join. I always lose my composure. I said "no" a few times and explained why, but they always give  me glimpse like I murdered their first born.   I played a 109 today. For some of you outrageously high, for me a very good round. 😎 Played better than my provisional handicap.
    • Now that my season is done, I would like to reflect. My driving Fairway Hit % in the beginning of the year was less than 40%, to end the year it was 63.5%. My target goal was 65%, and if you remove the drives before I got my new driver it moves up to 66.4%, but that is cheating myself. I need to improve this stat. My average GIR was 7.8. This is bad, I really need to improve this. However, my best rounds of the year were all over 12 GIR, which shows that when I’m on my game, I’m hitting greens.  My Average score on par 3’s was 4.186. I really need to improve my par 3 play. My average par 5 score was 5.546. I’m not mad about this, but considering my length off the tee and with irons, I would want this to be at or under 5. My average par 4 score was 4.915 This is just abysmal. I shouldn’t be averaging nearly a bogey on par 4’s.  My average score in tournaments was an 89. 75. My average score out of tournaments was an 80.66. My goal for tournaments was 85 or better and my goal outside tournaments was under 80. I hit neither. These are the only stats I keep at the moment. I had a few rounds in the 90’s and 2 rounds over 100. The 90+ and 100+ scores were all in tournaments, save for one round of 91 I shot on my schools course. All in all, my short game improved a ton, my  iron ply improved a ton, my driving was the biggest overhaul, and my mid range wedges gained a fair amount of accuracy and consistency. I don’t feel I’m far off of being in the 70’s or better. I typically give myself plenty of birdie attempts, and I can recover well. 
    • Last day of the year for golf. Ended it kind of sadly.  Long story short, I was 2 over through 15, had about 5 birdie putts that I missed, made 2 birdies, had about 4 insane recovery chips that I still don’t understand how I pulled off, and 4 bogeys that honestly shouldn’t have happened. 2 were 3 putts from on the green, one was trying a stupid hero shot and drilling a tree, and the last one was a flubbed chip.  16 Tee I wildly miss the fairway with my fairway wood. It stings extra bad missing the fairway when you try to lay up, so I let it get in my head and decided to try yet another hero shot, drilled a tree and back into the fairway. Gun the yardage, 154 about an extra 10 uphill, so about 164. Torn between an 8 and a 7. My 8 goes about 164 max in the warm if I really up my tempo, and my 7 typically carries 178 in the warm, so I decided to play it safe and grip down on a 7 iron and flight the ball higher in the air so it carries shorter and stops better. Proceed to fly the green by about 10 yards because I absolutely poured the ball. Lose the ball in long grass behind green, return to previous shot, penalize myself for losing a ball and grab an 8 iron, then proceed to come up well short. You can see where I’m going with this. Finish with an 8. Now 6 over through 16, Finish 3 putt double bogey, and then par to shoot 80.  Oh well, shit happens sometimes. Up until that point I was playing well. 11 GIR is a pretty good stat, but 11 GIR and only 7 being par or better is not good.   Edit: looked at scorecard and realized i actually shot double bogey, then par to finish. Kind of stings worse.
