Data Points | SkyTrak+ vs Mevo+ vs Launch Pro

SkyTrak+ Metrics

As you can see in the chart above, the long-awaited SkyTrak+ has added the Club Data that users have been asking for. You'll get:

  • Club Path: the direction the club head is moving relative to the target line. This has a major influence on the curve and Side Spin of your shots. 
  • Face to Path: the biggest factor in determining which direction your shot curves, as well as how much. It's the difference between Face Angle and Club Path. 
  • Face to Target: the direction the club face is pointed to the right or the left of the target at impact. It's most responsible for the Side Angle of your shots.
  • PRO TIP: Having a strong understanding of the relationship between Face to Path and Face to Target is the first step in eliminating nasty slices and hooks! 
  • Smash Factor: a ratio that defines how effectively energy is transferred from the club into the ball. The formula is Ball Speed divided by Clubhead Speed. The higher the Smash Factor, the more effective the energy transfer was.

FlightScope Mevo+ Data Points

The FS Mevo+ offers 16 (3 more) data parameters out of the box, plus you can add on 11 more with the Mevo+ Pro Package for an additional $1,000. Upgrade further to the Face Impact Location software ($499), and you get lateral and vertical data. That's a lot of data—but you're going to pay for it.

Bushnell Launch Pro Data Points

As of October 2023, the Launch Pro is now available in two data configurationsa at two very different price points. The Ball Data Only Launch Pro ($1,999.99) gives you all of the ball data only (see listed in table above) and the Ball & Club Data model ($3,499.99) adds club data to the mix. With both configurations, you will see all of the data on the display of the launch monitor.

Data and Swing Visualization Comparison

The SkyTrak launch monitor comes with its basic software, the SkyTrak practice range. With this you will get a basic range simulator experience, where you get feedback overlaid on video of your shot. 

Next they offer the Game Improvement package for an annual fee. This adds bag mapping, skills assessment, practice randomizer, wedge matrix, shot optimizer, and shot history.

With their Play and Improve subscription, you'll get: skills assessment, bag mapping, practice randomizer, wedge matrix, shot optimizer, shot history, WGT by TOPGOLF.

FlightScope Mevo+

The Mevo+ portable launch monitor lets you automatically record and sync videos from multiple cameras for instant review on your iOS devices.

You can record and clip videos of every shot on your mobile device and overlay your selected data parameters. Connect up to three mobile devices plus your FlightScope Mevo+ internal camera for the ultimate video experience. 

With the free FS Golf app for iOS and Android, you get data margins and instant feedback, customizable trajectory view and data blocks, and data and video combined.

The FS Golf for PC (free with the 2023 Mevo+, $99 to upgrade to older model) gives you complete customization with up to four views at a time on your screen and a table of your data with averages.

When you add on the Mevo+ Pro Package, it's just bonkers ... You get a ton of additional data (for your short game too), plus D-Plane data.

And now, when you have the Pro Package, you can add on the Face Impact Location software upgrade ($499), which allows you to view the precise location of impact for every club and compare it to the data for that shot. Face Impact Location also adds two additional data parameters: lateral impact and vertical impact.

Bushnell Launch Pro

The Launch Pro is the only golf launch monitor in this comparison that has a display on the unit. Out of the box, this is where you see your data without the need of software, iPad, or computer.

As of 2023, the Bushnell Launch Pro is available for purchase at two different price points with two different configurations. You can purchase the Ball Data Only Launch Pro for $1,999.99 or the Ball & Club Data Launch Pro for $3,499.99. 

To get more data and visualization on either Launch Pro data version, you will need to purchase the Gold software package for $499/year. The data visualization you can get from this (like the Launch Pro itself) is a whole other beast. You will have access to FSX Play, FSX2020, 25 top courses, save sessions, create players, record unlimited unique clubs, track rounds, online game play and contests, 3D ball flight, and more! You will also have FSX Pro for iPad. Foresight Sports has added new third-party simulation partners which work with the Bushnell Launch Pro as well. These include Awesome Golf, GSPro, Creative Golf—and E6 Connect is in the works. You can also add on Swing Catalyst for some of the best video analysis of your swing!

Keep in mind, you have to have a tricked-out gaming computer to run FSX 2020/Play and any of the new third-party simulation software. Check out our Bushnell Launch Pro Update to see all the changes to price, data, and software.

SkyTrak+ vs Mevo+ vs Launch Pro | Accuracy Comparison

SkyTrak+ Accuracy

This next-gen SkyTrak golf launch monitor features improved accuracy with both updated photometric tech and the addition of dual-doppler radar!

The new SkyTrak+ uses AI as well as both deep and shallow machine learning models—created by a legit rocket scientist!

With help from GOLFTEC PhD researchers, all this combines to bring you accurate numbers! They are also dedicated to improving that accuracy over time.

In the coming weeks, we will have several SkyTrak+ review videos from our golf partners. Follow us on social media and check back often to catch these initial reviews from Gabe at Let's Play Thru and Paul at Golfers Authority.

Check out 10 Quick Reasons to get the SkyTrak+

FlightScope Mevo+ Accuracy

FlightScope just keeps piling on the technology upgrades, and in the last year they've introduced Fusion Tracking. This benefits your Mevo+ portable launch monitor experience by improving the accuracy of all Mevo+ data parameters. 

On top of that, they've also integrated with Titleist RCT (radar capture technology) golf balls to both increase indoor accuracy and allow you to forgo the need for metallic stickers on your balls. Another win for radar-based technology indoors!

Bushnell Launch Pro Accuracy

If you are going with the Launch Pro, you just flat out decided to put your money on the accuracy. Not only is this golf launch monitor camera-based, it's triscopic—that means it's got three cameras doing your data feedback duty! 

Not only that, Bushnell Golf partnered with Foresight Sports to get the launch monitor technology they're known for with the GCQuad. And this unit is near-GCQuad level when it comes to accuracy. There won't be any doubts with this golf device.
