Anyone Use the Swing Caddie SC200?

I picked up a Swing Caddie sc200 a couple of weeks ago, and was wondering if anyone has used one with a practice net. The manual has an illustration that looks like it is being used with a net. But when I contacted support I was told it is designed to be used on the range only.

Yes, works fine with a net. You need a certain distance between the unit and the ball, and between the ball and the net, I forget what the manual said, but it's not a lot. I've used mine inside and it's better than nothing but gives no spin info. I don't use it outside -- see, the ball went there. What's the point?

Bought one after reading a TON of reviews. Seemed that there were more positive than negative, so I took the chance. Took it to the range on a nice, clear, calm day. The readings were all over the place. One shot with a 6i registered 135yd, the next hit virtually the same said 168yd. Hit my driver, said it was used 200, which was totally impossible. Had many more similar discrepancies, sent it back for a refund. Considered a Mevo, but $500. Ouch.

No accuracy problems with the SC200 - mph is a little higher than Trackman by a couple of mph. It sometimes will miss a ball, I'll reposiiton and it will take the reading. Sometimes, I must thurn the unit off, then on. But otherwise, it's fine for its purpose. It's a useful tool for feedback.

I understand they are developing something to compete with Mevo.

I have the 100 and it works pretty well. As mentioned above I have to make sure it's positioned in the right spot. I have never used it with a net. Once I get it in the right spot, no problems.

    • An 88 today. Horrible putting. Missed 6 straight par putts from inside 7 feet. I can’t even say well I made a long one that maybe I shouldn’t have. Just plain bad putting. To top it off triple on 18. Ugh. 
    • She deserved at least a sniff of your beer for requiring you to play from the tips and commandeering the cart!  Sounds like a good kid.
    • Had a nice time today golfing with my Granddaughter. We played 9 holes on "her home course" .  She was a bit down in the dumps because she didn't qualify for Monday's varsity tournament. We talked about her best golf days were still a head of her. Freshman envy I guess.  On the first tee she asked "so what are we playing for?" I told her a pitcher of beer, figuring I would destroy her mental prowess right off the bat. "You're on" was her reply. Now my mental game was taking a double take. I've been out of highschool for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure 13 year old, highschool fresh are not into beer yet. She told me she needed a stroke a hole, and that she would be playing from the women's tee, and that I would be playing from the tips.  Now I am really thinking. This time last month this young lady didn't know very much about golf. Yeah, a few long swing lessons with the course pro, and some short game stuff from me, some months ago. Trying to keep my competitive face on, I was.  Oh yeah, that she would be driving the cart......huh? Long story short she netted a 44, while grossing a 53. I think I was conned out of my own hdcp, but still won with a 41.  I was pleasently surprised at her game. I don't what youngsters her age shoot for good scores. I thought something in the 60s would have been decent. I asked her how she missed qualifying for Monday's tournament? She said she scored 51, and needed a 48.  As we were heading off the course, she told me I was going to have to wait on that pitcher of beer. For about 7.5 years. A little personal relief on my part. However, she was up for an ice cream, and soda. My treat.  What can I say. She now owns me.       
    • 86 (+15) on a 5000 yard course. My best here is 84. I really need to learn to control my emotions when I face slow players ahead of me. Today it came on hole 13. Waited for another single (walking as was I) to get out of range. Talked to him at the next tee box to see if he had called the rangers about a 4ball that wasnt letting singles play through. He had another single in front of them. Neither of them wanted to join up which didn't make sense. Had the first 12 holes done in 65 minutes, then it took 80-90 minutes fot the last 6 holes. I know that is normal pace, but it is more than twice as slow as I had been going. I'm glad I kept my head in the game enough to finish the round without killing my score
    • I have the Smart Sole S AND a Callaway 58 C-grind 8 bounce. Yes I know they're both 58. And yes I use both of them. The SS S for deep rough and soft sand, and the Callaway for hard pan, tight lies, and firm sand. All of which exist on the same course. I don't carry a FW so I have room in my bag.
