Are there any new technologies related to this coming out? Or at least something to make the cost more competitive

Just to let you know, out of the blue the iOS Skypro app has had an update. Two points of interest, it has a swing diagnostic mode, haven’t tried it yet as it needs a new swing to work. The second thing is shot navigation and management has had a major overhaul so now you can structure (folders) and find shots (wildcard search) much much quicker since the very first app release.

I just updated on ios 11.2.2 and the update worked without any data loss and things seem been stable thus far.

Gord, not sure if you are responsible for the latest updates to the Skypro app but here are a couple of minor irritations.

The new diagnosis mode is the default view on launch, this perhaps makes sense if a Skypro is detected but is quickly frustrating when you just want to review swings, could this be a global user configurable option for app startup.

Next, free text search is cool but it is actually harder to pin down two driver swings for comparison than it use to be with the filter by club option. The text driver, 1 wood filters on swing label not the club.

Haven’t had a chance to try swing diagnostic mode, three swings with a low battery and no alerts prevented the app from offering any help with the swing. Just to say 67 mph with a 7 iron is a fault in my book!

The message at the PGA show was of the new diagnostic mode mentioned earlier and upcoming integration with SkyTrak which will provide a complete system (ball and club data combined).  The Skypro folks seemed to be committed to continue improving the product software for the long term and only bringing out enhancements when they are ready.   This is one of the things I like about Skygolf.  You get solid hardware that can grow over time and not need to be replaced every year with a newer technology.  Yes there are memberships involved which many don't like but its a relatively small investment to use an integrated system of products that don't require constant hardware upgrades every year or two.

it seems that skypro can be now integrated with skytrak. any of you sky pro users try this yet? I would love to have some real world feedback that isnít testimonial on the manufacturer website. thanks

I own a Skytrak and a Skypro device.

If Skytrak is not connected to a Skypro, Skytrak will estimate clubhead speed (CHS) based on several other parameters it actually measures. With this CHS and the measured ballspeed it then calculates the PTI ( power transfer indicator, also known as smash factor). So without connection to a Skypro, the PTI and CHS are not very accurate.

If you connect a Skypro to a Skytrak device, the CHS Skypro measures is transferred to the Skytrak and Skytrak displayes this (accurate) CHS and calculates PTI based on this measured CHS. Both values are displayed in orange so you can see these values come from the Skypro.

The SkyPro directly measures swing speed and only shares that measurement with SkyTrak.  Without it SkyTrak calculates swing speed which isn't very accurate.  There is no change in the flight algorithm whether swing speed is calculated by SkyTrak or measured by SkyPro.  .

strange, so the skytrakís swing speed calculation and the skyproís swing speed calculation could be different? and obviously skypro is making some assumptions about club head speed and doing estimates calculations because itís not measuring the head directly but rather closer to the fulcrum at the base of the grip.

The measured data from SkyPro are going to be much more accurate and consistent than the SkyTrak numbers which are only calculated.  The SkyPro numbers are right in line when I test it against a radar based Voice Caddie.  SkyTrak swing speeds can be all over the map.

Gord, I am not sure if you still check this thread but I noticed another bug with the new app.

Once you complete a groove session it is possible to exit the groove score to a screen displaying the ten completed shots but without the navigation options to change groove mode or repeat the groove. The only option is to close the app which in turns forces another club calibration.

I've had my skypro for a few years. So obviously it is out of warranty. I love using it to diagnose my swing and grooving swing changes. During a driving range session the plastic cover came off. It looks like the plastic around the screws that attach the cover to the base sheared/cracked. The electronics went flying down range along with the cover. The electronics appear to be working. I need to replace the housing/cover. Does anyone know if skypro will provide replacement parts? Thanks

RodC,
I think 59 pages of information on Skypro should be more than enough to allow you to make a judgement on if it is for you or not.

I am a long term user, to summarise, Skypro is great for practice with feedback, using the groove mode is the best feature of the product, the caveat being what you want to work on needs to be one of the groove mode options.

If you are looking for launch monitor style data, with the exception of club head speed and AoA, Skypro won’t give you any, they use their own way of supplying the information.

Thanks for the answer. And Iím sorry I wasnít specific on my question.

I read the thread and found there is constant issues with the battery and charger, not very reliable it seems.  And I was hoping newer users would have nicer news about it.
Since the problems reported are on older threads.

Honestly, the battery is still flaky, I am on my fifth  unit, two of which I paid for under the in-play discount scheme. My last in-play replacement was only 3 month ago!

I am having some Skypro issues.  When hitting irons I am getting a combination of backward shaft lean at impact and having a downward angle of attack.

How is that even possible?  Flipping?  If so, wouldn't that mean upward angle of attack?  It is also showing a backward shaft lean at address and I don't think that's the case either.  I'm confused and somewhat frustrated with the both the device and my swing!

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Let’s assume your Skypro isn’t faulty, let’s also assume you have it correctly calibrated, with that said it is perfectly possible for the head to be past the grip with the club still travelling downward at impact.

Take everything to the extreme, generate an alert for too much shaft lean at address, see how that feels (check it in a mirror or video if possible). Repeat the exaggeration for shaft lean at impact, the closed face drill is a good one to get the feel.

Close the club fact 20 degrees or so, then take your grip, now try to hit a shot that doesn’t hook, the only way to achieve this is to exaggerate forward shaft lean at impact. Once again video your swings.

The bottom line is there is often quite a difference between feel and real.

I have had my Skypro 3+ years.  Its a great device.  I have had zero hardware issues (battery, not registering shots consistently...etc.)  I am a Stack and Tilt golfer so some of the baseline parameters that flag as out of spec (inside takeaway, inside return, shaft lean) really aren't out of spec for me and I have had to figure out based upon shot quality where I need to be for my best results.  That said its an invaluable tool for me to get my swing back on track.
