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.
The 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.
