29 April 2021
ORLANDO, FL – FlightScope – global leader in tracking and analyzing sports performance data – announces its popular Mevo+ has earned a Golf Digest Editors’ Choice Award in the “Best Launch Monitor” category, as seen online and in the latest issue of the magazine.
FlightScope introduced Mevo+ in 2020 as an advanced, portable, and affordable launch monitor and golf simulator, purposefully-engineered to meet the needs of both avid golfers and players seeking entertainment. The favorably priced unit ($1,999) works indoors and outdoors and accurately tracks a wide array of data, as well as providing simulated golf courses and other gamification elements such as the FlightScope Skills App.
Golf Digest editors wrote of Mevo+: “[T]he radar-based Mevo+ mix[es] the shot metrics you need from a practice session, including launch, spin, ball speed and distance, but add[s] the game-playing feature that you might pay 10 times as much for. The Mevo+, whose technology is based on the successful Flightscope family of launch monitors and works with the Flightscope app for keeping track of performance over time, offers better outdoor functionality for the range and easily fits in your golf bag.”
Mevo+ uses 3D Doppler Tracking Radar technology to accurately measure 16 data parameters, including: carry distance, ball and club head speed, smash factor, spin rate, spin axis, spin loft, angle of attack, horizontal and vertical launch angle, lateral landing, roll and total distance, shot type, apex height and flight time. An industry first feature, FlightScope Data Margins, allows you to set minimum and maximum values for any data parameter giving you instant visual feedback with simple green and red performance data displays.
“We created the Mevo line to bring the leading-edge technology of our TOUR products to the masses at an attainable price; and with the Mevo+ there is the added entertainment element to keep golfers engaged and improving,” said Henri Johnson, Founder & CEO of FlightScope. “For the vast majority of players, Mevo+ provides all the data they could ever need at a fraction of the price of more expensive launch monitors; plus it is portable, easy-to-use and fun for the entire family.”
This is the sixth installment of the Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Awards, which feature an assortment of products selected by the staff to help golfers play better, smarter and healthier in 2021.
