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.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
