Was really looking forward to a possible game changer. Garmin isn't it.

Did you see the Garmin G80?  Not saying its a game changer, but a novel idea for sure.  Has me thinking about it and I don't think I'd get much use out a personal launch monitor.   http://www.golfwrx.c...n-approach-g80/

Accurate “affordable” launch monitors aren’t cheap. That why they haven’t come out at the prices mass consumers want. Not feasible from a busiensss standpoint.

It's a limited market and there's no business sense in releasing a fully functional inexpensive model for consumers that could / would replace the more expensive models used at pro shops, instructors and golf stores.  

Mevo and SC300 are likely the closest we get to under $1000 with SkyTrak at the next tier.

The Mevo is pretty darn accurate. It has some issues with extreme spin, club speed, and ball speed, but it is generally quite reliable. I would guess that it would work well for 99% of the people on these boards.

I would say that having a new established company jump into the fray is the biggest news since skytrak/rapsodo.

Plus like has been mentioned the continued positive iterations of sc1/2/300 is promising especially @ <$1000.

Garmin jumping in, if that’s who you’re talking about, is great, but the fact that it’s a combined device means concessions were made some where, and I believe a separate device would have been better. If this is them dipping their toes into the market with stand alone, more comprehensive devices to come in the future, I’m all for it.

The new SC300 is redesigned and now directly measures Launch Angle and Apex! Also it has an App now too for Spin and other uses.

"Swing Caddie's latest rendition of its top-selling portable launch monitor is the SC300. In addition to the key metrics of carry/total distance, swing speed, ball speed, and smash factor, the fully revamped SC300 adds launch angle and apex, and with a fully robust app (the SC300 can be used with or without the app) also measures spin rate. Also included are distance voice output, adjustable loft angles, barometric pressure sensors, precision Doppler Radar technology and a full stats module."


Price: $499.99
Driver - Ping G400 MAX 10.5*
Woods - XXIO 10 3W
Hybrids - XXIO 10 3H, 4H, 5H
Irons - Home - PXG Gen 2 0311P 5-GW Away - Ping i500 5-AW
Wedge - Vokey TVD 56* K Grind

Thanks for the link. Other than showing what the unit looks like, and it's relative size, not much went into the reviewing. It's more like he was paid to make a video.

Agreed, not really a review, more like "why you need a personal launch monitor".  I'm sure better reviews are on the way.  He cant be the only one that got one to review.
