i have the sc200 and i am very happy with it. It seems petty accurate for my carry and total distances.
I only use it for dialing in my clubs as it works great for that.

The mevo gives more data including spin and launch angle. However to get good spin numbers you need to add metalic dots to the ball I don`t fancy doing that and my driving range so i stuck with the sc200.

Thanks for this, that's my impression as well. I'm really passionate about technology ( I have more time to practice than play) and I have everything from Swingbyte to Zepp. Swingbyte has been fine and I've paired it up against a Trackman at our club and believe it or not the differences were less than +/- 5% on measurables that could be compared. We do pay for our Trackman sessions so that can get expensive over time....

I've looked at the SC200 and Mevo in great detail and each has their advantages depending on how you use it and what you're looking for. I'm waiting this week to see if anything pops from the PGA show and will probably run with the SC200 if nothing earth shaking comes out of the show. Don't need to pair it with another device ( although the Mevo video function is interesting in the app) and I like the dial-in distance function of the SC200. I already have a pretty good spin profile for my driver and not necessarily thrilled about putting stickers on driving range balls to get spin numbers. No interest at all in the ES14..

Certainly cost plays a role and the SC200 can be had for $289 or less versus $499 for the Mevo, so cost versus benefit on how you'll use it is something to consider. If something with spin no stickers comes out from the show in the $500 range, I'll definitely take a look at it..

Hope that helps..

I checked out these 3 at the end of the season. I ended up getting sc200 for reasons stated above. I have a Danamax net with a 4x5 CCE mat in the garage. Last year I would just hit balls into it, Over last summer, found I needed to work on distances with my short irons and wedges. The cs200 works well measuring the distances of the irons. What's really nice is that you can adjust the angle for each club. The remote is a nice when you change clubs.

Understand price is certainly a factor, and definitely wait to see if anything drops at PGA. But i don’t think S200 is comparable to Mevo. The hardware, reliability, and app output, on the Mevo is better and FS is constantly releasing firmware/software improvements. You can often find a like new used Mevo on BST for ~$400.

I'm very interested in the SC200. However, whatever (if ever?) monitor I buy must work on an outdoor range as well as indoors. I have read here and there that the SC200 is *much* happier indoors. Can anyone comment on this one way or another? Thanks.

IMO, the BEST feature of MEVO that no one talks about is the video integration!  When using video, the app edits your swing to a 5-second clip and overlays the swing data. The video can be uploaded to myflightscope.com where it can be sent to an instructor, or sent out via social media.

MEVO firmware updates have made an INCREDIBLE improvement in overall performance since its release.  Missed shots and odd readings were the norm when it was first released.  Now, they are infrequent.  Distance accuracy is very good when compared to my actual range distance, a Trugolf simulator, and a Trackman.

Thanks for the input on the Mevo. I was interested in the video function and how later firmware updates addressed earlier issues.

I guess I am the only one in the ES14 court.  I have had both the ES12 and 14 and for me they have been reliable for what I expected.  On the ES14 the measured clubhead and ball speed are both very accurate and the calculations they use to determine other factors provide a solid result.  I really wanted it for the basics and never had any intentions to use it for driver fitting or anything that really requires full flight capabilities.  The only downside to the 14 for me is its size compared to the mevo or sc200.  I have no intentions of changing but if I were buying for the first time I think the Mevo would get a serious look especially because of its size and the the Flightscope reputation.  Honestly they were the first big name to take a chance on a consumer model.  That is a huge risk because failure at the consumer level can have very negative effects on brand name.  The fact that they took the jump (Trackman does not seem to want the average golfer business) shows the confidence in their technology and the years of collected data behind the scenes that brings it to life very accurately.  I think all 3 are good choices and its going to come down to how you intend to use it.

Have to agree on this. Over the winter period I have really come to appreciate this as I try to work on my swing.

Being able to just leave the Mevo and Phone/Tablet in place and get it to record/edit/display my swings has been invaluable.

Only downside is that I now know how ugly my swing is :cry:

No. $5000 used. Most likely $10,000+.

Thanks for all the insight everyone. The frequent updates with the Mevo make me think hard about it. I’ve almost pulled the trigger on the SC200, though. Again, if used on the range, is the Mevo still worth it, when you can’t get spin rate readings (unless you put the stickers on each ball, which seems stupid in a public range scenario)? The video function is nice. But so are the practice and approach modes on the SC200, which IMHO help me get better more quickly than watching my swings on video.
No loft adjustments on the Mevo, correct?
Can data from Mevo sessions be exported to create private statistics, say in Excel?
Still looking for a definitive advantage of the Mevo. Also, pricing-wise, SC200 wins.
Any opinions on these points?

Unless a complete mis-hit, MEVO does a fine job of measuring spin WITHOUT stickers.
MEVO's spin without stickers compared to the indoor simulator I use is typically within 5-7%.

If I want to vary my distances during a practice session, my brain can randomize numbers.

I export my practice data to Excel, by copy/pasting from a myflightscope.com account.

Didn’t know this, sounds great!

Sure, but the rating system and automatic random distance generation sounds like a lot more fun than saying: “Ok, 52 yards now.” But it’s not a game changer, I agree.

Good to know this works and another advantage of the Mevo.
SC200 gives you statistics by showing your average numbers per club. The data can be reset so one could have it as a longtime average or per session or per week etc. But no export.

Mevo is way more flexible I guess.
I just saw a YouTube review that showed vast distance miscalculations with longer clubs, though. Like 30 yards more than what Trackman showed, with the exact same hits. That put me off a little. But generally, I’m still indecisive which one to get. Mevo seems more future ready due to updates being possible. SC200 does just a few things, but does them very well and has almost all parameters that I need to see.

I suspect Flightscope is done upgrading this model of MEVO. Havent had a firmware update in a few months.
