I found this on that other golf forum, but apparently you only need the metal dots on the ball for indoor use.

Don't you need the dots for outdoor as well if you're wanting spin to be recorded?

No.

I often don't even use the dots inside, if it's long enough distance.

Ok, nice. BTW...love this Mevo...I think it’s a hell of a deal for the price. Easy to set up and use and all the info I really need for my level. So glad I bought this!

Not according to the flightscope rep that posted that.

How far do you find that distance to be? I frequently hit into a net so I'm curious how far that is.

My outdoor net is only about six feet from where I hit. I seem to get a 10% reduction in the predicted distance compared to an outdoor range. I've tried both the pitching setting and the indoor. 

One funny thing, when I set up the MEVO Monday, one of my first shots bounced back and hit the MEVO! No damage and it was not moving fast.

What ball are you using? I have about 7' of flight on my setup and it's pretty accurate on the pitching setting.

You should adjust the tension of your net. Maybe that's part of the problem? I'm using the Rukket net (as you know) which allows the ball to travel a foot or two before it drops. Perhaps the extra distance helps the unit with the read, though it does miss about one in five shots altogether.

Have you contacted FlightScope?

Old ProV1 balls. I have not contacted Flightscope yet. I want to make sure I have everything level and try different distances from the hitting area.

I've tried a bunch of net tensions. I'll keep playing with it until I perfect it. I am after all and engineer! LOL!

I think they recommend at least 10 feet of flight if you are using a net.

    • I bought a sleeve of Taylormade Tour Response with the large green stripe.  I like them, and the way I’ve seen people line up putts is to line the big green stripe 90 degrees to where they are aiming, so unlike the triple track or single line guides that point at your line, it’s the other way. I’ve started doing that with any ball now, even lining up off the tee.   Generally I play Titleist ProV1 regular or X, with some TP5 and Chrome Soft Triple Track thrown in
    • - No need to be greedy here.  They are lying three (two stroke penalty), you are lying one.  Play for par as the best they can do is hole out for bogie.   - Play to the safe part of the green, no need to sucker pin into trouble.  In LSW, Erik covers why playing to the safer part of the green is smarter course management.  20ft for birdie is likely a two-putt for par, just as a good lag putt from 40ft is a two-putt for par.  Halve the hole and move on.   - When we play our casual men's best ball, we always let the accurate guys go first then we unleash the bomber.  I would do the same here, let the accurate guy get theirs in play as close as they can.  This sets up the bomber to hit a good driveable shot into the green for the win!  IF they OB the ball,  you are still looking at a decent attempt for birdie by the accurate one.    
    • I, on average, find 4 to 8 balls a round.  Many of them new. 200+ rounds a year so I find at least 800 balls every year. So, let's say I get the opportunity to play a hole or so with lots and lots of different type balls.  The following are balls I give to my buddies that I find...Snell, Vice, Kirkland, Top Flite, Srixon, Titleist AVX along with anything pink, orange, red.   I play mostly Bridgestone balls, the e12 Control.  Do not like it as well as the e12 Spin that was discontinued.  I also play the Callaway Supersoft.  But, as I said, I get to try lots of other balls.  Just hard to find the feel on all shots on the balls I described I give away.   The last ball I found was a TaylorMade TP5 Yellow.  Couple years back I used to play the TP5X white.  I found the TP5 played vey well.  I liked the feel.  Probably won't switch to it but overall a very good golf ball.   BTW, maybe it is because I am old but I hate the phrase where the word "game" is used instead of "play".  I don't game any balls, I play Bridgestone.  Now, the grouchy old man has spoken.  😁
    • Tiger Woods missed US Open to prepare for 150th Open Championship at St Andrews - BBC Sport Tiger Woods says he missed last month's US Open to "give it at least one more run at a high level" on the Old Course at next week's 150th Open... So now we know he likes to read Dean Koontz.
    • Finally knocked off #2 with a good 10 foot putt.  Unfortunately, I missed both birdie putts I had on #7 and #8 from 12 and 15 feet that would have closed me out for all 18.  Maybe next weekend .
