MEVO+ or SkyTrak?

Which is the better launch monitor – the MEVO+ or SkyTrak? And what exactly is a launch monitor?

A launch monitor is a device that provides real-time, comprehensive data about every shot you take, delivering insights into key metrics such as clubhead speed, ball speed, launch angle, spin rate, and shot dispersion. With this wealth of information at your fingertips, you can pinpoint areas of improvement in your swing and make precise adjustments to optimize your performance on the course. 

You can pay anything from €500 (MEVO) upwards of €20,000 (Uneekor EYE XO) for a launch monitor. Of course the more you spend, the better the graphics and the more analysis it will give you but for most golfers, the lower end monitors are just as good.

We have compiled a few bundles to get you started, we have the affordable Home starter kit at €1,195 incl VAT & delivery, this includes the MEVO as the launch montior. We also have the next step up – the Game Improvement Bundle starting at €2,615 which includes a choice of either the MEVO+ or the SkyTrak launch monitor. To help you make the best decision for you, we have created a comparison chart between the two

Build Your Dream Golf Simulator: A Step-by-Step Guide

Whether the weather is keeping you off the green or you’re just looking to improve your swing at home, building a golf simulator can be a fantastic project.

**Step 1: Choose Your Space**

Select a suitable location for your simulator setup. A spare room, garage, or garden shed can work well. Ensure you have enough space for swinging a club comfortably. Minimum requirements are a room size of 3m wide x 2.8 high x 5m long. Here’s the before picture of an installation we did recently

**Step 2: Gather Materials**

You’ll need a few essential components:

1. Golf Launch Monitor: This tracks your swing and provides accurate ball and club data.

2. Projector and Screen: High-quality visuals are crucial for an immersive experience.

3. Impact Screen: A special screen that can withstand ball impact.

4. Golf Mat: Offers a realistic surface for your shots.

5. Computer: Powerful enough to run simulation software.

**Step 3: Install the Equipment**

We do this for you!

1. **Mount the Screen**: Set up your projector and screen at one end of the room. Make sure the projector is aligned properly for optimal projection.

2. **Set Up the Launch Monitor**: Position the launch monitor to capture your swing data accurately. Calibrate it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

3. **Lay the Mat**: Place the golf mat at the other end of the room, opposite the screen.

**Step 4: Software Setup**

We also do this for you!

Install golf simulation software on your computer. Connect the launch monitor and projector to the computer as per the manufacturer’s guidelines. Calibrate the software to match your setup.

**Step 5: Fine-Tuning**

Again this is on us.

Test your simulator setup and make adjustments as needed. Calibrate the launch monitor and projector for accurate readings and visuals. Ensure your swing area is unobstructed.
