Not looking to replace Hoss, cause I cant, but looking for something I can get feedback on a shaft change.  Recently had a friend swap my Ping Diamana Whiteboard and DI-7 to TM tips.  Initially seems better results with both, hitting the DI-7 slightly lower, but its hard on a range with chunk balls to tell.

 

I know what Im looking at won't replace a TrackMan, but I figured it would have the same error for all three shafts.  Flightscope Mevo at the $500 price point caught my eye.  SkyTrak ($2000),  ES12($200)  and  SC200($350) also seem interesting

 

Thoughts?  

 

Thanks!

One of the guys at our place carries his own track man or whatever they are called.  Very serious fellow.  Has all the equipment, clothes, etc.  A little unapproachable.  

 

After seeing this go on for over a year, I am have to say something -- of course.  That went well...

Later in the day, I was coming in on one of the holes and heard this clanking, thuds,  more awful strikes.  The tee box is fairly close to the green but with a bunch of large trees that I am looking through to see who the &%$# is hacking it this bad.  Guess Who!?!  

 

Just started chuckling.   He looked over and noticed me... Poetic Justice!  Just smiled.  

 

Sometimes its not all about launch and spin numbers.   :D

Reliable and repeatable based on feel - can't max out every swing and play well consistently IMO -

 

Reminds me of a story an old pro told me about Sam Snead hitting partial approach shots most of the time - feel and timing.

Hey Texsport, did you hear the one about Sam Snead also liking to listen to a waltz before playing, to work on tempo?

Yes!   Johann Strauss.  

 

My wife plays this on occasion and it does seem to work.  Timing and Tempo. 

 

Also, used in a new car/truck commercial.

 

Or, you can use a metronome.
