How accurate is the Mevo+?
What data does the Mevo+ capture?
The Mevo+ captures 16 data parameters. It captures all ball flight information and some club data. These include:
The higher priced units such as Flightscope X3 and Trackman 4 capture additional club parameters such as swing path, face angle, etc.
You could easily spend between $10,000 and $30,000 for a top of the line unit such as Trackman but for a fraction of the cost, you get an incredibly accurate indoor/outdoor portable simulator that captures the most important data points. Best of all the Flightscope Mevo+ integrates with the best golf course software.
How much space to I need for the Mevo+?
The Mevo+ sits behind the hitting area so needs a little more space compared to SkyTrak. It requires about 5.1m (17.5 feet) of space to be totally accurate (2.4m from Mevo+ to ball and a minimum 2.4m from ball to screen/net, 300mm behind screen to allow for screen to expand during impact). The more space you have from the hitting area to the screen the better with 2.7m being ideal.
It requires 2.5m width and anything above 2.85m in height is workable but it depends on the height of the player (this is variable). As a rule of thumb, 3m is usually fine.
For best results avoid large amounts of exposed metal and fluorescent lighting which may interfere with the radar. Ask our experts on how modifications can be made to sheds or other spaces to improve accuracy.
The FlightScope Mevo+ includes three pieces of great value software:
This is your standard driving range software which displays all shot data, plots it on the range and includes dispersion circles. One awesome feature is the automated video clipping feature. Mevo+ connects directly to your phone’s camera, which you either place down the line behind the player, or parallel on the side, and automatically clips the video of your swing, then overlays the data of that swing on the screen. This gives both players and coaches the opportunity to review both the physical swing combined with the outcome of the swing in one simple and quick interface. Coaches can save these videos and forward to students, or, if Students own a Mevo+ themselves, can record the swings to submit to their coach online for review and coaching.
The is a skills test app. Users can choose from a variety of different pre-set skills tests, or create their own custom ones. The skills app has users on the driving range once more, but has them aiming at targets set by the software, and ranks each shot. At the end of each skills session the app will identify how well the golfer has performed, where they predominantly miss their shots etc, and gives them information to work on. It’s practicing with precise purpose.
Apart from being a launch monitor, the Mevo+ is also a highly accurate golf simulator. Included at no extra charge is an E6 Connect lifetime subscription with five free real-life golf courses that players can use on their iPhone or iPad. They can even plug their device into a TV or projector to play at home. This is currently available for iOS only running iOS13.3 or later.
