They'll ship to each of those who ordered later today! Everyone but @iSank should see them on Valentine's Day… and he'll see it a day later (oh, pooh, that's what he gets for living in Hawaii!!! :-D).

Right on! Just finished 23 holes today & may have to cancel my Thursday twilight if this arrives so I can hit the range.

mahalo @iacas!

Now to get rid of that snow in the background.

Thanks @iacas for offering this and for the super quick turnaround.  Much appreciated!  Can't wait to start testing it out!

I picked up my Mevo from Erik today. The first thing that I notice is how small this thing is. Erik helped @georgep and I set up the Mevo. Then I took it for a bit of a test. I have to say, the Mevo is pretty awesome. The Mevo App is really simple and well done. I can't wait to use this at the range and the course. It will be really good to have some exact numbers for my yardages. I am already thinking of ways to use this for practicing. 

Here are the contents.

This thing is going to be fun and add some data verification to range sessions. Super simple to go from box to first use. Can’t wait to dig deeper.

Also glad to see my 200+ mph ball speed with a 6-iron displayed!

OK so this was clearly an erroneous result... cause not clear. There was a lot going on, and several Mevos in close proximity. The three other readings could have been drivers hit from the next mat over.

Agreed @georgep I’ve been to the range 3xs since I got mine last week. It’s interesting to see good #’s with a good looking hit, and what numbers stick out when I make a bad shot. The bugga is tiny, easily fits in my pocket, and I am thinking of bringing it with me if I play tomorrow morning. 

Here’s to improvements!

Since my first post was to put my name on a Mevo, thought my second post should include some feedback...

Big thanks to Erik for the great Valentine's Day treat. Just my luck, shortly after setting up the iPhone app and making sure everything was working, my two teenage boys swarmed me and wanted to take a "few" swings. An hour later, I was still awaiting my turn as my boys were still enthralled. We have a backyard setup with a 5x5 turf mat, and a net wall that is 3-7 yards from the mat (depending on iron and height being hit). I set the Mevo 4 feet behind the middle of the mat, and placed in on top of the box it came in to raise the height to the appropriate level. In the app, I initially set the unit to capture video, but was unable to get this function to work properly. With the voice feedback, everything worked great. We tried a few shots without using the metallic stickers, and then put them on 1-2 balls to see if any difference...honestly I couldn't see any. Suspect this could only be determined on the range with precise marked yardages. Also, most of our time so far has been at night and based on limited use, it seems the unit may perform better in the day than at night. 

So far, we have hit several hundred balls with the Mevo and have found it to pick up most, but not all swings. Thin shots tend to not get read, but the unit has no problem picking up the occasional hosel-rocket. We live in LA and have access to a range at our club, and look forward to seeing how it can favorably impact practice sessions on the range with full distance carry. Even with limited flight, this thing is really useful. I also need to figure out the video capture feature and see how that works.

Perhaps the coolest thing the technology enables is the endless possibility for games (drinking or otherwise). Last night, one of my sons and I played HORSE where we would have to call a distance with a given club...great way to spice up practice and even better since the old man is now up 1 game!

All in all, I really think the Mevo is far more than just a golf gadget for the lunatic-fringe or early adopter--or at least that's what I am telling myself!

Hope you all enjoy yours.

Probably mid-March or so? Signing up is just a way to keep apprised of things, it doesn't absolutely commit you to buying.

 
I might not be ready to buy until the summer but we'll see what happens. Dang student loans are severely limiting my golf budget :pound:

back from a long hiatus... B-)

@b101 can tell you. I think it added about $20 to the cost (I don't make much on them, less than minimum wage, and just charge cost for shipping). Send me a PM, but if you're pretty interested, add your name to the list.

@nabzi - definitely worth doing. Felt like it took ages to arrive, partly due to mine travelling over Christmas, and expect a small charge from Parcelforce (mine was £19 in the end as their standard 'handling fee') but it's the best way to do it. Erik was also great with keeping me updated and just helping check where the parcel was.

Just giving this a little bump to see if we can't get to 8 or so - enough for me to place an order.

    • My buddy gave me a brand new bag since I was looking for one. He won it at a tournament but was sitting in his shed for years. It has a little stink to it like mice might of got into it. What’s the best way to clean a bag like that. Would I be able to sprinkle dawn dish soap all on it and soak it with the hose then let dry. Has anyone had to clean a bag like that. 
    • Yes but consist behavior keeps bringing it back. The twitter rages, etc. Like I said, everyone has a different way of dealing with things. I may not agree with some either but if they are not abusing anyone or breaking stuff I am indifferent.   I don't mind his intensity here but appreciate it.   Everyone has adversity but it never seems like he is absent of the chip on his shoulder. He acts like anyone watching him or taking his picture when he is playing bad is against him. If he let his performance speak for him, he would be better appreciated. He often just comes off hateful.
    • @Tommy_Boy14 From what I can gather, it's essentially a thicker sole and top-side look at address, the set-up of the club then would be more to do with high launch, low spin and less workability than a tradional long iron. Totally open to correction on all of this of course, just 'off the top-of-head' thoughts.
    • Disclaimer: lengthy post ahead... I'm a lefty who struggles with slice, especially on driver. So much so that my last round the driver only made it out of the bag on holes 1 & 18 (with dismal results) and I had more success driving straight on more drives with a 3 wood out to about 215 yds. It was so bad that I'd considered giving up the game before I've even gotten started good. I'm aware that most slice stems from having an open clubface at impact, so this morning I made it a personal mission to fix this issue at any cost. What I settled on was a combination of a stronger grip position (I was gripping with the "V" shape in my hand pointed at the wrong shoulder, which was giving me little to no stability through the backswing) and positioning my hands farther forward of the ball. Now I've seen a LOT of instructional videos that say this is a terrible thing when hitting driver. It's more of an iron/wedge position. However, ball placement remains just inside my forward foot, as with all driver shots. The first thing I notice is that at address, my clubface is perfectly square to the ball/target line. With this combo of ball placement/grip/hand positioning the difference in my ball flight is night and day. I started by hitting plastic practice balls because they do give a pretty accurate depiction of flight without the distance.      The balls were flying so straight that I got a couple of sleeves of my Laddies out and gave it a go (empty farm land adjacent to my lot that I have permission to hit on.) I didn't have a lot of time this morning to drill, but every one of the 6 balls flew straight, with one even having a slight draw! I was ecstatic because prior I've never been able to hit consecutive straight drives. Ever. I'm just wondering if hands forward on driver is so bad, then why is it the only position that I'm able to hit good shots? Just curious if anyone can answer this? On another note, I'm skipping my round this weekend for a much needed range session to test my driver swing again, and to tune up with my iron play.
