  1. Hello, I am thinking about buying a golf simulator. I've spent a lot of time researching this decision. My finalists are ProTee, SkyTrak, GC2, or GC2 with HMT. If money wasn't a factor, I think the GCQuad would easily be my top choice. SkyTrak is the cheapest, but I don't think I can tolerate the delay between hitting the ball and seeing the results. I also intensely dislike their business model with their monthly fees. I'm currently leaning towards ProTee. Despite all the time I've spent on research, I haven't been able to find any data comparing ProTee to other launch monitors. ProTee vs GCQuad would be ideal, as GCQuad seems to me to be the gold standard. Ideally, the tester would have ProTee and GCQuad set up at the same time measuring the same shots. It'd be informative to compare spin rate, carry distance, apex, etc. It'd be nice to see some wedges, some mid-irons, and some drivers. I wouldn't expect ProTee to match GCQuad, given that ProTee is less expensive. But without having any idea of what the ProTee margin of error is, I'm going to have a problem pulling the trigger. Have you seen any comparisons like this on the internet? If so, please reply with the links. I wonder why ProTee doesn't include any specific claims about accuracy on their website. Do you think I should be concerned about this? It seems to me that lots of potential customers would have this same question. Thanks for your replies.
  2. I am demoing a Fourteen Golf HI877. It is pretty unusual and not at every proshop so I thought I would share the experience. Link to the website. HI877 I know the color is out there but I am looking to make the top of my bag more friendly. Right now I am playing Callaway Apex CF16 to 3 iron. I was never a fan of hybrids, I tend to hit up on the ball and I also tend to hook hybrids. I also don't like the feel of them. The hybrid I have liked the most is the Adam DHY. It looks like a bubble back club not a typical hybrid. In my case I think swing flaws cause me to gravitate away from typical hybrids. So I was sharing this with my fitter looking at the new utility irons and he said he really liked how the HI877 performed. He gave me one to demo. I am lucky enough to have a Foresight GC2 and HMT I can use. I have the 24 degree 877 and the numbers I was getting after a quick session gave me 5 iron distances. Which for me carries 175-180 so if I was to add them to the bag I might have to use the 21 degree to replace the 4 iron and 18 to replace the 3 iron. I like my 5 iron, it is one of my favorite clubs. I was able to take it out on the course and use it a little. I really like the feel of it. It feels like an iron which is what I like. I did hit a green that was significantly above me from 180 so that was a good sign and I layed up on a par 5 and hit it 220 from a fluffy rough lie (good lie) which was confusing so the jury is out on what distances I can expect but I really like the feel. If I like it I may get the 18 and 21. I can also send the fitter my numbers from the launch monitor so he can make adjustments. Standing over the ball the yellow does not bother me but I don't know that I want to be carrying that club around, I already think of it as the banana. I may bead blast the yellow off and paint it or leave it bare we will see. I'll report back as I get more information. I am playing Forest Dunes this weekend so I will use it more. Last night was league and I was a little hesitant to pull an unknown club.
  3. I’ve got a local indoor golf place with several bays that use Foresight GC2s.The owner (an instructor) told me he sets the altitude/elevation at 1200’ above sea level because it provides results comparable to what we’d normally have mid-summer in Chicago (which sits at about 600’ above sea level).I didn’t think much of it and proceeded to hit there a couple of times and the distances indicated were pretty spot on with my typical yardages. I was feeling good about the accuracy of the GC2 until my last session where I was getting about 10% less distance on every club. I asked the (different) guy who set me up if there was something wrong with that unit, and he said no. The owner overheard us and asked the guy if he changed the elevation setting. Upon checking, the elevation was at the default sea level setting. After it was changed to 1200’, I was back to normal distances. Does it seem right that a launch monitor would need to be set at 1200’ to return the same results that are had in the real world at 600’? Also, it’s been a long time since I’ve played in Florida, but is it accurate to estimate a 10% difference in distance from sea level to 600’ above?I found this on the Titleist website, and it seems to indicate the difference shouldn’t be that much:You can calculate the distance gain you will experience (compared to sea level) by multiplying the elevation (in feet) by .00116. For example, if you're playing in Reno, at 1 mile elevation (5,280 ft.) the increase is about 6% (5,280 x .00116 = 6.1248). If you normally drive the ball 250 yards at sea level, you will likely drive it 265 yards in Reno.Any knowledgeable insight from anyone?
  4. Thank you for viewing my swing thread. This is my swing at home on the gc2 (I have a pc setup with the software in the garage too), hitting a 6i. This is a pretty typical swing for me- a decent one. This swing does result in some push draws, pushes, and hooks (if I get my left shoulder too steep on backswing). You may notice a funky little left foot lift on the backswing. This makes me feel more athletic and that I'm shifting my weight. Here are my current swing thoughts: backswing: left foot up + left shoulder turn behind the ball. (arms FEEL vertical like Bubba) downswing: everything but driver- Create a loud SWOOSH down and through the ball. For driver- create a loud SWOOSH at the ball. At the end of the video, you'll catch a quick glance at my data capture, but here it is so you don't miss it. 6i DTL Ball speed 121 Launch angle 21.3 Push/pull (start line or azimuth) 10.4 right Draw spin 1138 Backspin 5100 Carry 177 I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years My current handicap index or average score is: 10.1 before I got my gc2 Christmas of 2016. Worked on my swing change for 2017 and learning the ball flight laws and using the gc2. I haven't played a full 18 yet in 2018. Trending downward though :) My typical ball flight is: Push draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: HOOK. I can manage a push or push draw as that will fall into my shot cone. But when I get my left shoulder too steep on the backswing, the launch angle is too low and starts about on line but has 1500-2300 rpm of draw spin- resulting in a shot that ends up 30-40 yards left of target. Great ball speed for my swing speed, but it's a trap draw that I cannot play once I hit fairway woods and driver. I will add more videos to this thread when I can. I appreciate your input, thanks and hit them great! Videos:
  5. Greetings everyone, Been a while. Just wondering your thoughts on an issue I've had. I have what seems to be a very rightward path. I own a Foresight GC2 (but without the HMT unfortunately... the GC2 alone was a pricey toy) and I consistently start the ball well right of the target line with draw spin. Often on tight courses, it is difficult for me to play those courses due to my excessive right to left curvature. I seemingly cannot control face and path independently. I can move path, but I cannot change my shut to the path FACE. I have experimented with ways to combat this: 1. I have tried to just play my push draw. On open courses, I hit high (over 30 yard peak height) push draws all day. I do worry about over turn or no turn at times. It is very frustrating to get to the 18th tee and hook a ball OB left or block a ball into the weeds. 2. I have played my push by aiming way left and tried limiting the draw. Sort of like Trevino- aim left, swing right, and walk straight-ish. When the draw is minimal, I get a really high (close to 40 yards peak height) block down the middle. On the gc2, my starting line is roughly 9-12* right with less than 1k draw spin. Driver is even more to the right with an upward angle of attack and low spin. This is much better than option 1 I've found. 3. I've tried to swing left and hold off the face. This just moves everything to the left more. My start line can get down to 1-3* right, but the draw spin remains. The ball starts more on line, but it hooks even more. The ball flight is much lower too (less than 30 yard peak height). I'll try to post video and gc2 numbers later. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
