I was doing a lot of research into the Mevo vs the SC200 and trying to decide what to ask St. Nick for Christmas .  I was mostly curious what the SC200 actually measured and how it derived the displayed distance. I decided to email Voicecaddie directly to ask a few questions about the SC200 and they responded timely to explain it independently measures clubhead and ball speeds, but does not account for launch angle or spin rate in any way, beyond the input loft of the club.

...then he said the big thing...

Their new product, the SC300, coming in January measures both launch angle and spin rate!

I kept poking and was informed the retail price will be around $500.

My request to volunteer myself as a product tester was not acknowledged in any form :(

The I hit the google to look for any other info on the SC300 and found what appears to be a user manual in the FCC website!

It looks to display carry distance, clubhead speed, ball speed, smash factor, launch angle and apex on the screen. It seems to be a bigger footprint than the SC200 and sits in more of a landscape vs portrait orientation.  There looks to be a corresponding app that will show spin rate, nothing about metal dots is shown which is a plus versus the Mevo.  

So now I’m in delay mode on the choice of personal launch monitor...

I’ve seen a few mentions of a new Mevo also, does anyone else have more info in SC300, Mevo, or anything else comparable?

Why can't one of these $500.00 units show clubface relationship at impact? Is the face closed, open or square and is path from inside, outside or square. I would be willing to put a sensor on both heel and toe of the club I am using. This new unit does look very interesting. I too am in the market but will definitely wait. Thanks for the info.

Sorry, looked a little closer at screenshot. Description says spin rate (APP only). Any idea what that means? Also I don't see spin numbers on the screen.

The last pages of the manual show that it will connect via Bluetooth to an App on your phone.  Looks like the spin rate will display on the "APP" only.

I picked up the SC200 for Christmas for my 14 year old so we would have something to do during the winter.  That bad boy might be going back as this looks like a definite upgrade.

Form factor looks much more like a Mevo to me, which is a good thing IMO.

But I dont see any way it will display accurate spin without the metallic dots. Even the Trackman 4 recommends them for indoor use.

I'll stick with the Mevo for now, especially given my bad experiences with the last two Voice Caddy products I tried.

Anyone heard anything new on release date for the SC300? I’m looking for something like that or Mevo.

Voicecaddie told me that the SC300 was expected to be released in March.

Very interested in hearing more about this device.  Could be a future purchase if it meets the Wrx approval process..
