Reviewed - SkyTrak Launch Monitor
Over the past few months we have using SkyTrak for our review of new golfing product at Golfshake. We thought it was about time to give you an overview of what SkyTrak can do.
In addition users of SkyTrak can now play full-size simulated golf on more than 90,000 different courses, thanks to a new deal that has been agreed with The Golf Club Game.
SkyTrak also offers various challenges for engaging practice such as Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Targets, along with Shot History Tables, Performance by Club, and helpful data screens.
It’s easy to use, compact, totally portable with no wires required, and highly accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the golf course, check out our video review of the unit and find out how it can help your game.
The Tech: What SkyTrak say
The Wi-Fi enabled SkyTrak captures the actual ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin and side angle to project the ball flight over a vivid 3D practice range and virtual golf courses.
SkyTrak is a Photometric, or camera-based system, similar to commercial systems of this type that take high-speed pictures of the golf ball right after impact. One big advantage is that it works very well indoors in limited space and can be used outdoors, too, because we only have to measure the first few inches of ball flight to gather sufficient data to accurately model your ball flight.
These first few inches are not as vulnerable to current conditions, such as wind, impacting your results. And even more important, SkyTrak measures EXACTLY what the ball is doing, because when projecting ball flight and shot shape this is much more important than just having club head data. By measuring the golf ball’s behavior, we can not only accurately project the ball’s flight path and distance, but we make sure you have the accurate feedback required for productive practice.
