  • Is anyone happy with their Full Swing Simulator?

    I am very disappointed with my Full Swing Simulator and just wondering if I am the only one out there? Would love to hear from someone that likes their FSG setup.

    I paid over $90K for the FSG Sim and a Swing Catalyst setup this summer and it has just been one big let down. They provided me with an old version of the E6 software from TruGolf, but it is a version of E6 that was released in 2007 and is pretty limited and no longer supported (enhanced). What they touted as their new Simulator software Full Swing Golf (FSG) is not much more than a Beta version.

    FSG Issues:
    • No ability to set the elevation on the driving range
    • Doesn't appear that elevation is factored in to any of the course configurations
    • Golf Ball is shown as square instead of round (think the old Pong Game)
    • No pin shown when you set your range target to a green, so your hitting to a target that is the size of a green with no finer target than that
    • No integration with the Swing Catalyst, even though they sold me both systems
    • Trees, Rocks, Sand is not factored into the sim, so you can hit your ball right thru a tree or a rock and you can putt out of the sand if you wish

    I wonder if the square looking ball could be rectified by a different screen material? Not sure if it would make a difference but may be worth a try. The easiest way to see is to see if one of the company’s that offer screens could send you a small sample that you can put up to compare their material picture quality to what you have?

      Yes the system has the Ion3 overhead camera. The entire company FullSwing company has gone dark on me. I sent this email (attached below) a couple of weeks ago and I am still waiting on a reply. I haven’t even received an acknowledgment that they received my email.

      Subject: New FSG version


      I installed a new version of FSG today Ver1.0.12.7918


      Where can I see the release notes to know what was fixed in this release?


      Critical Bug Fix Requests:
      You still cannot adjust the elevation setting on the driving range. Do you know when this is going to be fixed? I don’t consider this a feature request since a very small part of the users actually live at sea level and being able to set the correct elevation is critical to learning to hit shots the correct distance.


      Still no integration with Swing Catalyst. While the support guys at FSG tell me this integration is on the roadmap, the team at Swing Catalyst says they have no plans to add the integration. Can you update me on where this stands? You sold me both systems with the understanding that the systems would be integrated.


      Serious Bug Fix Requests:
      On the driving range, when you select the “Green” target there is no flag on the green, so if you set the target Green to 150 yards you have no reference if you are hitting the ball short or long of 150y or if you are hitting it right or left of the marker. I have provided support with multiple screenshots of this bug in the past.


      Annoying Bug Fix Requests:
      During course play, trees and boulders are not obstacles. There is no need to play around trees as every shot you hit flys thru trees or rocks as if they are not there. It appears that water is the only terrain component that the simulator actually recognizes.


      Feature Requests:


      It would be helpful, if the shot values reported where color coded. For example: PATH values that were “inside out” where shown in one color (blue for example) and “outside in” values were in another color (yellow for example). This way when you looked at the numbers you could instantly recognize their orientation instead of having to also read the text of inside-out or outside-in to determine context. Same process for FACE Degrees, Open or Closed as well as SIDESPIN, Draw or Fade.


      Ideally this would be user configurable. For Example: I am working to get a more outside-in path, so I might assign Red to inside-out values and Green to outside-in values. When I look at results and see that Path, Face and Sidespin are all Green numbers then I am getting the desired results, if one is Red then I look to see what the problem is with that number.


      Similarly it would be helpful if the ball flight tracer marks were color coded. Draws in one color, fades in another color and straight shots in white. Again user configuration of these color assignments would be a great add.

      Thanks in advance for your reply,

      Dustin R. Womble

        Full Swing provided me the E6 Software (Version released in 2007, and no longer supported) along with their FSG software. The golf ball is round in the E6 Sim software, it is only square in the FSG software.

          I'm happy with the Full Swing System. I don't think there's a perfect system. In my house I have a GC2 with FSX2020 and TGC 2019. I have access to a very recent Full Swing System with both FSG and e6 1.6. There are some weird aspects to the FSG. They have some glitches that are awful in their software. The system reads fairly well. The FSG software itself has beautiful graphics. The screen is so big, it feels like you're at the course. We've started using e6 way more until there's a new update to FSG. They are updating their software but not nearly enough. I really want to be able to run TGC2019 on the sim. Anyone made that work yet?

            RaceTo100 - my guess is you will be able to run TGC2019 with your FSG system soon. They announced the release of a Full Swing Kit which is launch monitor only and they are claiming it supports TGC2019. Likely you would have to buy a second copy of TGC2019 that is licensed to your Full Swing system. The Kit is supposed to be released in May this year, I believe.
