  • Worth it to upgrade to the Eye?

    I am thinking of upgrading my QED to the Eye,
    is it worth it ?
    are they more accurate?
    using mark balls are annoying but for the extra money I will have to pay not sure if it’s that big of a deal to use mark balls
    thanks for your input

    I think moving away from the marked balls is one of the bigger benefits many users perceive, but I've gotten pretty used to putting stickers on every 3-4 months and it really doesn't bother me much easier. The biggest benefit beyond that to me would be the additional data, particularly angle of attack. When I started with the sim and bought my QED, this wasn't a huge deal to me, but I've been working on it a lot over the last year and now find myself wishing I had that data available.

    Re: accuracy, I've played a few times at a sim in town that has an EyeXO and don't find it a lot different in terms of accuracy, so I don't think that's a strong reason to upgrade. If you do upgrade, please post back and let the rest of us know what you think about the differences.

      I would agree, please keep us informed. I'm thinking about upgrading as well. I'm finding that I love the data QED has but as I've hit so many drivers now I'm really want to better understand angle of attack. I have to admit that using unmarked balls sure would be preferable for me.

        I worrry about how easy it might be to hit the eyexo system and I have heard of some misreads with shiny wedges. If only they would come out with some premium premarked balls I think qed would be even better. And I don’t think it would detract from eyexo sales.

          Regarding the marked balls - I read on the forum that TP5x pix and Callaway Truvis balls work with the QED. I purchased a dozen of each and tried them out yesterday. Both balls worked perfectly and I found that the carry distance seemed a little longer.

ID:	355552 I’m a HUGE proponent of the stickers, and playing the exact ball you play IRL. It’s just not that big of a deal to me. And certainly not worth swapping to the EYE as the only reason. JMO

            Having said that…I received these in a gift bag. My club’s logo on a Callaway. Similar to the other Callaway balls—but nowhere near a black dot or a specific pattern. Haven’t had a misread yet.

            FWIW

              Note even on spin? If you ever see the spin figure in italic font, the system is guessing. My experience with the Truvis and Pix are about 60/40 (good read/guessed read). When your clubs don't get the appropriate spin I find they carry further and don't hold the greens like IRL.

                I noticed the italic font last night while playing. It was only on one (1) shot but it is definitely something to watch for. So far, the pix and truvis balls are working great. Thanks.

              Not even on spin. I’m aware how the system works.

                I use the Pix all the time and get like 18 out of 20 read just fine. I wouldn't use them in any kind of thing that mattered score wise just in case I got some crazy driver reading with 4000 sidespin but for just hitting balls they have worked fine for me
