I wish they were able to make some sort of practice program to go with it. I get that it can't do left or right spin but for distances it would be phenomenal.

The FAQs suggest they have a "practice" mode in the works.

Also, GolfWRXrs attending the PGA show are reporting Flightscope is going to release a new MEVO, but it sounds like its still 18 months away.

So it sounds like they're targeting Christmas 2019 for Mevo 2?

I think the 18 month estimate was a quote from the show, so it would be closer to summer 2019.

How well does it work in a backyard with a net the proper distance away?  This would allow for the metal stickers and regular ball....

Should work fine.  I tested mine against both actual range distances, and an indoor simulator.  No issues.  I do think I would use stickers if I was using balls with worn covers where markings have faded or rubbed off.  Also, would probably use stickers more with wedges and driver, where spin measurement is of higher importance.

From the couple times that I have used it, I feel it works more than well enough for 99% of golfers. The majority of Am golfers don’t know their actual distances anyway and this being off by a yard or two (with no stickers) ultimately means nothing because we aren’t consistent enough. Well WE all are, being WRX’ers but the rest of the schlubs.....

Is it perfect? No. Is it worth the money? I feel it is. I just hope the continue improving it, even though they are planning on releasing a new version in the next 2 years. Not knowing the technical side of it all, I hope they are able to bring a practice mode to the app or figure out a way to be able to use a metallic sharpie for the balls.

I have yet to use the dots and am currently working on a home net situation. When that happens I’ll use the dots. No sense in wasting them on a range where the balls are crap and just tossing them away.

On the normal flightscope you can do a short game practice where it gives you a yardage and you try and hit it for points.

I just use it for data.  I then import into excel and scatter plot it out.

I only really practice specific yardages with wedges and I do that with my yardage gun.

I'm excited as the MEVO will hopefully continue to improve with updates.

Just got it on yesterday and I absolutely love it. Just using it for gapping alone helps quite a bit. Would highly recommend it as an investment into your game

No. Only club data is clubhead speed. You get ball speed, CH speed, smash factor, vertical launch angle, spin (no spin axis/side spin, just total spin), apex height, flight time, and carry distance.

Have had mine a few days now. LOVE the video integration with iPhone - no more trimming videos or starting/stopping the recording. Numbers seem spot-on, both indoors and out. Way easier to use than SkyTrak and only misses a shot if you shank or top it.

Can you setup fast enough to use on tee boxes and fairways while playing 18 without too much delay? Or is the calibration an issue?

You *could*, but that would be kinda weird.

In my opinion, those who want to take swing video, but feel its too much hassle should check out MEVO. I think Flightscope is missing the boat by not touting this feature more. I bet you could get people buying it for the video editing alone...

Just wondering...plenty of times out with 2-3 guys, course to ourselves and the debate over spin/launch, etc...comes up.

I would suggest that if you do want to use it on the course, play a 9 hole round after work when the course is empty.

Definitely if you're playing a 5.5+ hour round. Plenty of time while waiting on the tee box.
