Not sure if this is the right forum but I couldn’t find anything else. I’ve heard some rumors about a new launch monitor company, possibly out of Georgia working on a unit that combines radar and camera systems. Wondering if anyone has any insight or an existing discussion.

Newest flightscope utilizes both systems and is supposed to be quite good. I’d be very curious to see another player into the market and hopefully maybe drive prices down a little bit

Hopefully they can drive the price down by about 90%. Then Iím a buyer. 🤡

Ernest Sports is out of Georgia. Know a few of the guys over there. Not sure about them coming out with any new products though. I haven't kept up with them.

If it's Ernest Sports it's not worth your time. Their last several products have been absolute garbage. Lots of good info on the golfsimulatorforum.com site. I've been quite pleased with my Flightscope XI tour but would love to see prices on these get more reasonable. 15-25K for new Trackman, Foresight, Flightscope is hard to justify for an enthusiast, clubfitter or teaching pro.

Opti-shot has a couple of new models coming out that look promising. The one I saw looks similar to a GC2.
