Equipment

FlightScope to sell “Mevo,” a $500 launch monitor

Published

on

Instant numerical feedback on golf shots is becoming essential for club fitting, practice sessions and game improvement. The problem is that many launch monitors in this space have price tags that are unrealistic for most golfers; they sell for tens of thousands of dollars. FlightScope’s new “Mevo” is golf’s latest affordable launch monitor, selling for $499 starting March 1.

MevoGolf500The Mevo has multi-sport capabilities, most notably working for golf, baseball and soccer. Specifically for golf-ball feedback, the mevo will offer:

  • Ball Speed
  • Club Speed
  • Smash Factor
  • Vertical Launch Angle
  • Carry Distance
  • Spin Rate (when metallic dot is used on golf ball)

Connecting wirelessly through bluetooth, the Mevo will also offer “equipment selection for more effective performance analysis,” according to FlightScope, as pictured above. Other features include video, uploading and sharing capabilities, and automatic video clipping, as per FlightScope’s website.

    I’m with Mr. Robson. I’m gonna wait for the K-sig version. It will be cheaper an offer more data. Damn i miss his voice at the British Open.

      The ‘British Open’ is a misnomer as it is rightly named ‘The Open Championship’. That is, it is singular and global.

      • good wood

        Feb 5, 2017 at 1:40 am

        Yes I know that Dave, however this wasn’t the case until recently. Most of our american relatives (parents and grandparents) were not familiar with that vernacular. It was the British Open to them and still is. There are many Americans that call our national championship ” The Open”. Right or wrong it’s all a matter of perspective and how its used in the context of a discussion. I know one thing, our world has gotten so much smaller now that we have become slaves to the internet. My guess is that the name change or correction happened when our cultures and traditions were merged by the internet in the early 90’s. Yes the younger generation and discerning golf fans know the difference, however it does not bother me if the two are used interchangeably. For some its necessary. I could be 80 years old and this could be my first time on golfwrx. I may not watch a lot of golf or even have Golf Channel.

    I would love to have one on the range before my round to specifically get my wedges dialed in like DJ often does. all my hardcore analysis would be done with a fitter who has countless shafts all the latest club offerings.

    All I would want this for is to dial in carry distance on my own. That said, not sure where I would be able to do that properly (i.e. an outdoor space where I can hit all clubs with my gamer balls and then collect them).

    I don’t think this could ever be a good fitting or teaching tool because it lacks of lot critical information and you can’t use it for simulator practice which also sucks.

    For the little extra $ required, just purchase a SkyTrack and take the time to set it up properly or save even more and get a used GC2 – there should be plenty available with the release of GCQ.

    its been said, but no face, path, spin axis, aoa makes this much less useful than it could be. i like the price point but will wait for v2 to be released in a year or so

    Just a thought, I hear people complaining about putting metal dots on range balls to track spin. Well, not sure where you guys go to the range, but where I go, they use limited flight balls so silver dot or not, you’re not gonna get good spin readings vs your gamer ball. That goes for any monitor, if the balls are junk your readings are junk.

    • S Hitter

      Feb 1, 2017 at 1:05 am

      Yeah, and why would you waste your precious dots on range balls at a local cheap range? And you’re going to spend the extra minute or two putting dots on every ball you hit every time? You’d be there for 5 hours just trying to hit a bucket of 120 balls from all the time you spend standing there putting dots on the balls lol

  6. Ron

    Jan 31, 2017 at 10:01 pm

    About the only thing this is good for would be dialing in your distances. And if it’s accurate for that $500 is not a terrible price point. But Ernest Sports already has a personal LM that does that at a better price. Personally, I’d rather spend $1k more and go with a Skytrack that reads side spin so you can see how far left or right your ball is going. And also serves as a simulator.

  7. dlgravett

    Jan 31, 2017 at 8:39 pm

    This will sell out for sure if it is any good at all. I will wait to see how accurate before I invest. So much more practical for easy fittings and simple base numbers. Instant feedback should help all the lost golfers out there understand A more accurate way of playing with today’s technology. Flight scope has the right idea lets see how good the execute.

    It’s like all the roadbike Freds with power meters on their Pinarellos.

    Why do people need to spend endless amounts of money to be told they suck.

  9. Ramrod

    Jan 31, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    No face or path data? So they missed out the two most important things a launch monitor needs for someone trying to improve their game.

    Genius.

    Just pull the ball, stand it on the piece ‘o wood, aim, and hit it for crying out loud!!! A personal monitor. That’s as wacky as a wrist watch to count your strokes on a par 3! A $500 personal
    launch monitor? Gotta be kiddin’ me. Not one hack on this site will EVER stand a ball on a tee
    in a PGA Tour event! And what does a 15 hdcp. need a launch monitor for? To get his/her own
    numbers and walk directly into a golf shop and demand this or that club? Oy Vay!! Where
    are the early 1990’s? We pulled butter knives from the bag and learned how to get it around
    with actual woods and liquid filled balls. I’m guessing a back pack version of the ME’vo will be
    available to use during play? “Hey Bill, my drive just ripped down the fairway with 2100 spin!!”
    Shut up!!

      for someone who doesnt know how it could help their game, its useless but for me i can dial my wedge numbers which will help my game greatly, this is launch monitor will help me a lot. how many times have I a hit shots with my wedge trying hit 60,70,80 yards judging by the feel and either come up way short or go over the green? this will help me a lot in terms of getting right yardage. and I heard DJ’s success season last year was getting his wedge numbers right

      • Jam

        Jan 31, 2017 at 2:29 pm

        I agree, for me the appeal is getting dialed in from inside 150 yards. I am a low handicapper but struggle from time knowing exactly how far I can hit certain wedge shots. I’m hoping the Mevo proves to do a good job of giving me accurate distances for short shots and it’ll be well worth the money.

        • The dude

          Feb 1, 2017 at 9:25 pm

          ..too many variables even for a “low handicapper” when deciding how far to hit your wedges (lie, wind…where the pin is…). Are you saying you swing all your <150 yard clubs at a stock speed?

    • Brian

      Jan 31, 2017 at 3:03 pm

      If you have a net in your backyard that you hit into, you have no idea whether you’re hooking, slicing, hitting too high, too low, or with too much/little spin.

      • Brian

        Jan 31, 2017 at 7:45 pm

        If you can’t tell that then you have some feel issues.

    • Bigleftygolfer

      Feb 1, 2017 at 2:11 am

      I love the reference to the maxfli liquid filled balata balls! And some of us still hit butter knives 🙂 (miura tournament blades) and I could not imagine using this often I get fit twice a year as a tune up to adjust lies lofts etc truly will the average golfer even know what they are looking at on a monitor? The trackman I get fit with has mounds of info that I trust my fitter to interpret and hand me a stick that works! 🙂 but good luck anyway!

    I am sorry but it would be useless to me if it does not have side angle information.

    • Steve

      Jan 31, 2017 at 3:48 pm

      Can’t you tell side spin by the ball flight?

      • S Hitter

        Feb 1, 2017 at 1:02 am

        Not if you’re indoors hitting into a net!

        • Eric

          Feb 1, 2017 at 2:07 pm

          If you’re trying to use a doppler based launch monitor for balls going into a net, then you’re doing it wrong in the first place.

  13. Jam

    Jan 31, 2017 at 11:16 am

    I’m really only interested in something I can dial in wedge distances with outdoors. Would this be decent or do I need to put a silver dot on everything?

    • Nabors

      Jan 31, 2017 at 11:39 am

      It will still do distances, but to get an accurate spin rate, you need the metal dot.

      • Teaj

        Jan 31, 2017 at 3:56 pm

        would you not need to know spin rate to get distance? If I spin the ball at 8500 rpm or 1200 rpm with the same ball speed the ball is not going to go the same distance.

        I am curious how it calculates smash factor, does this unit measure club speed and ball speed? Would the club need dots as well much like the GC2 + HMT?

        will there be software with this unit to be able to play a round of golf?

        and to answer the question of why you would need this, if you don’t know how each of the measurable states relate to your golf swing then you are correct, I think this would be a great product to have if you know what flight, spin and distance you are getting from each of your clubs, mainly your wedges where you will most likely see the most improvement in your game if you know these. Also a great unit for small fitter/club makers

      • Jim

        Jan 31, 2017 at 5:45 pm

        With the price & promised performance, $25 for 1K dots is irrelevant. If you’re shagging your balls, you’ll probably get several hits with each dot. If you’re putting em on range balls trying to ‘knock pins down’ from 150-110 the range balls will be off from your game balls anyway. If LA is <2 degrees off from the pro models with driver, this will be a huge hit! I'll have mine 3/3…

  14. Steve

    Jan 31, 2017 at 11:13 am

    I’ll take this out for my twilight practice rounds when I’m typically the only player on the course I play.

  15. NolanMBA

    Jan 31, 2017 at 10:42 am

    I love the idea that these are coming down in price. But a 1.43 smash factor with a 6 iron? That seems abnormally high doesnt it? Tour average is 1.38 and in the smash factor world– .05 is a significant variance. Red flag to me but I’m gonna keep researching it because I want one.

    • golfrnut

      Jan 31, 2017 at 11:43 am

      Are you really forming opinions about accuracy on a screen shot that’s probably a rendered image done by someone on a computer and not real data?!?

      • NolanMBA

        Jan 31, 2017 at 1:12 pm

        My crux is interpreting data too literally I guess. I hope you’re right and I’m wrong.

  16. M

    Jan 31, 2017 at 10:37 am

    If you don’t use a metallic dot and it doesn’t record spin, how could you possibly get an accurate carry distance total?

    • Nabors

      Jan 31, 2017 at 11:43 am

      If it uses the same doppler radar system as it’s big brother, then it’s tracking the ball til it lands. Now if you are hitting into a net, then I can see that being an issue, but then again, if hitting into a net, you can use a marked ball to read spin.

      • golfrnut

        Jan 31, 2017 at 11:46 am

        I would probably bet, as others are suggesting, that it’s probably a very limited range Doppler unit, which is why the price is coming in so low. You’ll probably get accurate tracking to about the same distance as the other units in “indoor” mode, so probably good to about 15-30 ft? That would be a legitimate reason as to why the target spots would be needed regardless of where the unit is used.

        • Eric

          Feb 1, 2017 at 2:10 pm

          Why would you think that? If you looked on their site, the most logical thing would be taking their lowest price launch monitor and look at the features. Mevo won’t have “3D radar” so yea I don’t expect it to track lateral movements and as a result wont have a lot of other features. But to think that a launch monitor from a reputable company who makes pro grade launch monitors would come out with a $500 Swingcaddie is the most illogical conclusion ever.

  17. Brian

    Jan 31, 2017 at 9:38 am

    I’d really like to see a review or comparison between the Mevo, ES14, ES16, VoiceCaddie SC200 and the SkyTrak.

    It is time that those devices drop in price especially when not for commercial use. Give is a “Home” edition for private training a capitalise on the extra units you will make up in sales. 500 $ sounds reasonable for real golf enthusiasts.

  21. Chris

    Jan 31, 2017 at 8:40 am

    May be a dumb question, but what are the possibilities of this for indoor/home usage? I have a hitting bay in my garage, anyone know if that would affect the numbers?

    • Justin

      Jan 31, 2017 at 11:26 am

      I think it was made for indoor use with the option of outdoor use. I never considered using this in my garage because I wanted to know spin numbers and most monitors were too expensive. Now because of the size and price I’m heavily considering it.

    • S Hitter

      Jan 31, 2017 at 11:36 am

      By putting a dot on each ball you use, it can track spin in the first few rotations and that is how it can see the ball. So you can use it indoors, as long as you have about 30 feet to the wall you’re hitting. The problem with this small unit is it doesn’t tell you what direction you hit the ball. So the only way to tell whether you hit a slice or a hook is by feeling your own hit, and seeing the spin numbers go up or down along with the launch angles. This unit can’t see if you hit a toe or heel hit

      • Dave

        Feb 1, 2017 at 12:07 pm

        30′ is a long distance. I use an entire bay of my garage for my range. I have about 12′ from the tee to the net. I could probably get 15 or 17 if I needed to.

        Also, will this work with a program to show ball flight on a monitor/screen. I would love to end up with a simulator where I could play golf courses virtually during the winter.

  22. S Hitter

    Jan 31, 2017 at 2:38 am

    Yeah you all say you’re gonna buy it tout de suite, but the fact is, you have to put a SILVER DOT on the ball – how you gonna do that at a public driving range with crappy range balls when you just to want to show up and pound a bucket or two with this thing behind you? You gonna put dots on every ball? Yeah, thought so

    • Cameron Taylor

      Jan 31, 2017 at 8:02 am

      I actually have my own 150 yard range with a tee box and 4 different greens. I have two shag bags that i use to pick the balls up after i hit them……so basically this would be absolutely perfect for me……silver dot, green dot blue dot red dot i dont care! This thing will work perfect for my needs!

      • AMGolf

        Jan 31, 2017 at 9:17 am

        Sound like a typical use case.

      • S Hitter

        Jan 31, 2017 at 11:29 am

        Ok, rich Cameron, if that is the case, why don’t you just buy the Xi+? It’s $5000 and does a lot more. Because you sound like you can afford that, not this new $500 piddly little thing with which you will bored in about 10 minutes because it doesn’t do enough.

    • 3 from the tee

      Jan 31, 2017 at 9:29 am

      Why are you so mad about this?

    • Justin

      Jan 31, 2017 at 11:20 am

      Yes…kind. The word is that a roll of 1000 dots (arbitrary number) was $25 (another arbitrary number). So yeah, if you want to put dots on 100 balls you can. However, if you want to hit some balls and maybe test a few drivers then putting dots on 5-10 balls isn’t out of the question. I don’t need to know the spin of every single shot I hit, but it would be nice to know on maybe 5-10 swings in a bucket.

      Most of the people that buy this are going to put the dots on their gamer ball(s) and then use a hitting bay in the garage.

I tried the great Golfboarding experiment… here’s how it went

Published

on

Corica Park Golf Course is not exactly the first place you’d expect to find one of the most experimental sports movements sweeping the nation. Sitting on a pristine swath of land along the southern rim of Alameda Island, deep in the heart of the San Francisco Bay, the course’s municipal roots and no-frills clubhouse give it an unpretentious air that seems to fit better with Sam Snead’s style of play than, say, Rickie Fowler’s.

Yet here I am, one perfectly sunny morning on a recent Saturday in December planning to try something that is about as unconventional as it gets for a 90-year-old golf course.

It’s called Golfboarding, and it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like: an amalgam of golf and skateboarding, or maybe surfing. The brainchild of surfing legend Laird Hamilton — who can be assumed to have mastered, and has clearly grown bored of, all normal sports — Golfboarding is catching on at courses throughout the country, from local municipal courses like Corica Park to luxury country clubs like Cog Hill and TPC Las Colinas. Since winning Innovation Of the Year at the PGA Merchandising Show in 2014, Golfboards can now be found at 250 courses and have powered nearly a million rounds of golf already. Corica Park currently owns eight of them.

The man in pro shop gets a twinkle in his eyes when our foursome tells him we’d like to take them out. “Have you ridden them before?” he asks. When we admit that we are uninitiated, he grins and tells us we’re in for a treat.

But first, we need to sign a waiver and watch a seven-minute instructional video. A slow, lawyerly voice reads off pedantic warnings like “Stepping on the golfboard should be done slowly and carefully” and “Always hold onto the handlebars when the board is in motion.” When it cautions us to “operate the board a safe distance from all…other golfboarders,” we exchange glances, knowing that one of us will more than likely break this rule later on.

Then we venture outside, where one of the clubhouse attendants shows us the ropes. The controls are pretty simple. One switch sends it forward or in reverse, another toggles between low and high gear. To make it go, there’s a throttle on the thumb of the handle. The attendant explains that the only thing we have to worry about is our clubs banging against our knuckles.

“Don’t be afraid to really lean into the turns,” he offers. “You pretty much can’t roll it over.”

“That sounds like a challenge,” I joke. No one laughs.

On a test spin through the parking lot, the Golfboard feels strong and sturdy, even when I shift around on it. It starts and stops smoothly with only the slightest of jerks. In low gear its top speed is about 5 mph, so even at full throttle it never feels out of control.

The only challenge, as far as I can tell, is getting it to turn. For some reason, I’d expected the handlebar to offer at least some degree of steering, but it is purely for balance. The thing has the Ackerman angle of a Mack Truck, and you really do have to lean into the turns to get it to respond. For someone who is not particularly adept at either surfing or skateboarding, this comes a little unnaturally. I have to do a number of three-point turns in order to get back to where I started and make my way over to the first tee box.

We tee off and climb on. The fairway is flat and wide, and we shift into high gear as we speed off toward our balls. The engine had produced just the faintest of whirrs as it accelerated, but it is practically soundless as the board rolls along at full speed. The motor nevertheless feels surprisingly powerful under my feet (the drivetrain is literally located directly underneath the deck) as the board maintains a smooth, steady pace of 10 mph — about the same as a golf cart. I try making a couple of S curves like I’d seen in the video and realize that high-speed turning will take a little practice for me to get right, but that it doesn’t seem overly difficult.

Indeed, within a few holes I might as well be Laird himself, “surfing the earth” from shot to shot. I am able to hold the handlebar and lean way out, getting the board to turn, if not quite sharply, then at least closer to that of a large moving van than a full-sized semi. I take the hills aggressively (although the automatic speed control on the drivetrain enables it to keep a steady pace both up and down any hills, so this isn’t exactly dangerous), and I speed throughout the course like Mario Andretti on the freeway (the company claims increased pace-of-play as one of the Golfboard’s primary benefits, but on a Saturday in the Bay Area, it is impossible avoid a five-hour round anyway.)

Gliding along, my feet a few inches above the grass, the wind in my face as the fairways unfurl below my feet, it is easy to see Golfboards as the next evolution in mankind’s mastery of wheels; the same instincts to overcome inertia that brought us bicycles, rollerblades, scooters, skateboards, and more recent inventions such as Segways, Hoverboards and Onewheels are clearly manifest in Golfboards as well. They might not offer quite the same thrill as storming down a snowy mountainside or catching a giant wave, but they are definitely more fun than your standard golf cart.

Yet, there are obvious downsides as well. The attendant’s warning notwithstanding, my knuckles are in fact battered and sore by the time we make the turn, and even though I rearrange all my clubs into the front slots of my bag, they still rap my knuckles every time I hit a bump. Speaking of which, the board’s shock absorber system leaves something to be desired, as the ride is so bumpy that near the end I start to feel as if I’ve had my insides rattled. Then there is the unforgivable fact of its missing a cup holder for my beer.

But these are mere design flaws that might easily be fixed in the next generation of Golfboards. (A knuckle shield is a must!) My larger problem with Golfboards is what they do to the game itself. When walking or riding a traditional cart, the moments in between shots are a time to plan your next shot, or to chat about your last shot, or to simply find your zen out there among the trees and the birds and the spaciousness of the course. Instead, my focus is on staying upright.

Down the stretch, I start to fade. The muscles in my core have endured a pretty serious workout, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to muster the strength for my golf swing. It is no coincidence that my game starts to unravel, and I am on the way to one of my worst rounds in recent memory.

Walking off the 18th green, our foursome agrees that the Golfboards were fun — definitely worth trying — but that we probably wouldn’t ride them again. Call me a purist, but as someone lacking Laird Hamilton’s physical gifts, I’m happy to stick to just one sport at a time.

Titleist AVX golf balls passed the test, are now available across the United States

Published

on

Titleist’s AVX golf balls first came to retail as an experiment in three markets — Arizona, California and Florida — from October 2017 to January 2018. AVX (which stands for “Alternative to the V and X”) are three-piece golf balls made with urethane covers, and they’re made with a softer feel for more distance than the Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls.

After proving their worth to consumers, Titleist’s AVX golf balls are now available across the U.S. as of April 23, and they will sell for 47.99 per dozen (the same as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls) in both white and optic yellow.

According to Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, the AVX is a member of the Pro V1 family. Here’s a basic understanding of the lineup:

  • AVX: Softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning, less greenside spin and longest
  • Pro V1x: Firmer than the Pro V1, highest spinning and highest trajectory
  • Pro V1: Sits between the V1x and the AVX in terms of feel, spin and trajectory, and will appeal to most golfers

Different from the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, the AVX golf balls have a new GRN41 thermoset cast urethane cover to help the golf balls achieve the softer feel. Also, they have high speed, low compression cores, a new high-flex casing layer, and a new dimple design/pattern.

For in-depth tech info on the new AVX golf balls, how they performed in the test markets, and who should play the AVX golf balls, listen to our podcast below with Michael Mahoney, or click here to listen on iTunes.
