  • WTB Flightscope...

    Hey guys! I was just informed that for outdoor use Flightscope is head to head with Trackman, all I really care about is accurate carry and total yardage, nothing really more....is that true? If so, which unit is the best to get? And anyone selling anything? Anything I should know? All I'm trying to do is get all my club distances, gap my clubs, work on my game etc...thanks!

    Flightscope Xi+ is all you need at the range unless you want club path and face to path

      I have a Flightscope Xi, which is the same unit as the Xi+, but the spin data is locked. I only use my Xi indoors but my golf club has Xi, Xi Tour and X3 units. I’ve seen all three units compare 7 iron data to a Trackman 4 unit at a demo day. The Xi’s ball speed, launch angle, carry and total distance were virtually identical to a trackman 4. Flightscope stopped selling the Xi but still provides support for the unit. If you’re only looking for carry and total yardage, finding a used Xi will give you the best bang for your buck. Flightscope will also credit you $2,500 for an Xi if you decide to trade in and upgrade to another Flightscope unit.

        Then the Xi+ is the unit you want IF "work on your game" only includes needing ball data. If you want club data - club path, club face, dynamic loft, AoA, and much more... then the entry point would be the Xi Tour - or maybe a used X2.

        And the Xi+ can be upgraded at later date to include the club data (become the equivalent of the Xi Tour).

        Neither does short game - partial shots like chipping and putting very well. That includes that aspect of sim integration play. For that you need to go all the way up to X3.

          I can see the differences in data output on Xi+ vs Xi Tour vs X3 on the webpage below.

          What does Xi not show from Xi+? Flightscope makes so many iterations I am confused haha. Ultimately though either Xi, Xi+ or Xi Tour would work really well outdoor. I'm sure the data is just as accurate as Trackman/GCQ. I only tested X3 but they were pretty much identical to me (outdoor only though, will have to test indoor vs GCQ to put up my review once that happens).

            I know a friend that has one for sale. Let me know if you are still looking.

              If its just distances you can get away with the $500 Flightscope Mevo. Its very very small and gives you the data right on your phone or tablet at the course. I'd only go with the Xi+ or better if you are going to be doing an indoor simulator with the unit as well.
