Finally, a personal use launch monitor that’s affordable!
Whether it ‘s using the hitting bay at your local golf shop or taking a lesson from a professional, just about anyone who takes the game of golf seriously has used a launch monitor. Personally, I think they’re a great tool and can provide you all kinds of feedback about your golf swing. The problem is that unless you have at least $2,000 lying around to plop down on one, you’re pretty much resolved to just sneaking into the hitting bay at Dick’s occasionally. Or is that just me?
Voice Caddie, the industry leader in voice-guided golf GPS rangefinders since 2010, has raised the bar again by using precision technology to meet the demands of increasingly sophisticated golfers looking for scientific feedback. They recently introduced their SC200 Swing Caddie launch monitor, the answer to many a golfers prayers. The SC 200 provides pro-level feedback on such fundamental aspects as swing speed, ball speed, smash factor and carry distance, all at an affordable price. Best of all, Swing Caddie delivers accuracy comparable to tour-grade launch monitors.
The SC200 Swing Caddie is lightweight and has a small footprint (6″ x 3.5″ x 1″). Keep it in your golf bag for your next visit to the range. The device uses Barometric Pressure Calibration and Doppler Radar Technology and is designed with cutting-edge technology and intuitive features, making it very easy to use. The LCD display not only provides instant feedback, it calculates practice time and counts how many bally you hit. The settings allow for club selection and also let you select loft angle for more accurate readings. The SC200 stores swing statistics for each club, allowing users to review average distance, speed, and smash factor for the day and for the last 100 shots. It will also provide a voice output of your carry distance so you can continue running drills without interruption and impress those around you! There’s also a remote control that allows you to switch settings without bending down.
Swing Caddie offers users three different settings to accommodate a range of practice goals. When set to Practice Mode, the SC200 registers every shot and provides instant statistical feedback, including swing speed, ball speed, carry distance, and smash factor. Switch over to Target Mode, and you can set a target distance for a round of ten shots. This enables players to set their own practice goals and to measure improvement. Set the SC 200 to Approach Mode and you can set random target distances, providing a challenging way to test and increase accuracy.
The SC200 Swing Caddie is available at many major golf retailers and online at www.swingcaddie.com. It retails for $349 on the company website but can be found at other online retailers for under $300.
