  • Skytrak Shipping Delays

    The Flightscope forum has a thread for shipping delays on the Mevo+, so I figured it would make sense to have one for those of us waiting on a Skytrak.

    It would be nice if some people who recently received theirs would chime in and state their ordered and received dates etc.


    The official Canadian distributor has pushed the date of the next shipment a few times in the last 2 weeks. It used to be Sept 15th, then Sept 25th, Sept 30th, now pushed back to Oct 15th.


    My build is almost finished and I am eager to try it. I'm thinking of grabbing an R Motion to just test my setup, and since it has some kind of integration with Skytrak, it wouldn't be a net loss once I receive my unit.

    I'm seeing an average of around 6 weeks currently for orders placed through my dealer link direct with SkyTrak, which is for US buyers only: https://shop.skytrakgolf.com/c-1.aspx?AffiliateID=12025

    Of course it's all subject to order volume and their factory output volume, but that's been the case for at least the last couple of months.

      No need to buy R-motion or anything in the meantime. Just go ahead and start banging some balls. Shake off the indoor swing syndrome before you get the unit in there and also get the screen bounceback where you want it to be.

        Yep, this. The poor-man's launch monitor: hang a dark-colored string, cord, or nylon strap down the centerline with a little weight at the bottom, so you can see if you're starting the ball left, right, or center. Then pay attention to the direction the ball bounces off the screen: if it bounces back to the right, you had draw spin, and to the left is fade spin (RH golfer, reverse for LH).

          I've been doing this for a week now and I'm getting bored. Good thing I can still play real golf for at least another month before the courses close down for winter.

              Ordered July 12th, received August 24th. I'm in Australia and ordered via a distributor, not direct.
              ​​​​​
              Unfortunately ordered the day after their July allocation was exhausted, but great comms to help manage expectations. Skytrak had initially given the indication they would deliver in the first week of August but it took 5 weeks for them to post to Australia which suggests new orders are at least 5 weeks away (assuming they've not made or lost ground to date).

              In all, I was okay with this. Set the room up in less than 2 weeks (still 20ish hours work) which gave me 3-4 weeks of hitting against the screen without feedback. Imo this made it harder to adjust when the sensor was in as I had no feedback on what my shots were actually doing. With that said though, there'll always be an adjustment period to your setup regardless of how comfortable or tentative you are hitting against a screen only.

              11/10 would do again. Skytrak is a great unit, not for absolute beginners (too many no reads on scrubbed shots) but very good for people who can consistently strike a ball without being great by any means. 90-100 outdoor shooter here, hitting 0-20 over in sim play.

                USA - I ordered from Skygolf on July 25th. I was told from support last week not to expect it until early to mid October. When I ordered it said back-ordered to September.

                  Damn, I thought that might have been the case. Sorry to hear its still a month away, but it'll be worth it for sure!

                  The place I ordered from went from their pattern of (x) month sold out, preorder for (x+1) month allocation to "contact for order time frame" after I ordered. Just the nature of the world at the moment. Be thankful you didn't order a mevo+!

                  I ordered 9/2, and on the phone before ordering they told me mid-October. However, when looking at their website, the 8/24 update says 10-12 week shipping delay which would be late November. Hopefully the rep I spoke with on the phone was accurate, but I'm not holding my breath.

                  I ordered through GungHoGolf, found the experience and support to be invaluable. Highly recommend.

                    Had I known, I would have just ordered through GungHo : /

                  Ordered on 7/2 and received on 8/6. When I ordered in July I believe it said 10 weeks and then after 4 weeks a shipping notice came through. Maybe the estimate the worst case but are beating those estimates?

                    Order update: Ordered from Skygolf on July 25th. Received an email today (9/14) saying my Skytrak had been registered -- I was assigned a serial number. Looks like it's preparing to be shipped! Seems like a two month lead time or so in total from July.

                      That's good news! I was getting worried they were having production problems, considering many of us were told mid October. I found it suspicious that we were all waiting on the same batch to be produced and was getting delayed.

                    I ordered mine on 8/7 and it finally shipped out today.

                      Ordered August 28th, shipped out today Sept 17th. That was *way* faster than expected, especially since both the initial email I received and their website say October 15th.

                        Where did you order from? I ordered mine the 28th from Top Shelf golf and still nothing.

                        From Jancor; they're the official distributor in Canada. I don't think they ship anywhere else.

                      Hey guys, thank you for being understanding. We are playing catch up as quickly as possible - there was no way to be prepared for something like this. Every time we think we see the light at the end of the tunnel, orders increase even more. It's a good and bad problem to have. Just know we are working overtime to get units out to you! Wishing Flightscope and everyone affected by this the best.

                        From the looks of that last comment, you're doing admirably with the catch-up. Can one assume that if they ordered a week after Golfser, their unit would ship a week later, or is the delay nonlinear?
