SkyTrak vs Budget Golf Simulators
SkyTrak Vs Optishot 2
Optishot 2 is a very popular budget golf simulator. It is a stand alone golf simulator which comes with a mat and and plugs directly into your computer. The Optishot mat has 16 sensors that tracks your golf swing before and after contact with the ball to give you feedback on your swing. The Optishot allows golfers to practice or play real rounds of golf in the comforts of your home for around $300. See my REVIEW OF THE OPTISHOT.
SkyTrak vs R-Motion
R-Motion is a budget simulator and swing analyzer that uses clips on your club and an attached sensor to provide its data. Created by the Rapasodo company, R-Motion gives club and ball data including ball speed, backspin, sidespin, launch angle and angle of attack. You need to get a mat to practice indoors but it is portable for outdoor use. The R-Motion budget simulator runs around $200 for the full setup which also includes 15 courses using The Golf Club software for playing full rounds. See some of my other videos on the R-Motion on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
SkyTrak vs FlightScope Mevo
The FlightScope Mevo is a personal launch monitor that you can take anywhere. The Mevo is a budget simulator that gives real-time feedback on all your shots. Mevo uses Doplar Radar to track the ball and provide the data needed to improve your swing. There are eight performance stats that you can get from the Mevo including smash factor, ball speed and launch angle to name a few. It can be used indoors and out and through the app will allow you to film your swing and overlay all the data. The Mevo is on the high side of most budget simulators but can be compared to the SkyTrak in terms of output.
Skytrak is a great golf simulator that can help you improve your golf swing. It provides great feedback and is one of the most accurate simulators. The question you need to answer is if it is worth the price. Is the SkyTrak worth the upgrade from the budget simulators on the market. Hopefully these videos help you in your decision.
