FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ORLANDO, Fla. FlightScope®, a premier portable indoor-outdoor ball-flight and launch monitor and the world's first-ever 3D Doppler tracking radar for golf, is unveiling their wireless model, FlightScope Prime®, at the 2010 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla. Jan. 28-30. Show attendees have three places to see this technology in action: they can visit the FlightScope tent during the Demo Day portion at the Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge Jan. 27; or visit the FlightScope Booth #1261 or ETC Bay #13 at the PGA Show Jan. 28-30 at the Orange County Convention Center.
FlightScope Prime provides our state-of-the-art technology in a wireless model for instructors and club fitters who prefer this exciting new format, said Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope. Battery operated and totally portable with Bluetooth connectivity, it represents a brand-new technology solution while using FlightScope's renowned system of real-time tracking and precise measurements.
Known for its ease of use as well as the precision and unmatched accuracy of its technology, FlightScope provides players with real-time tracking, instant results, while measuring ball speed, carry, vertical and horizontal launch angles, swing plane, club speed at impact and club head speed profile throughout the impact zone, as well as the sidespin, backspin and spin axis of the ball.
Armed with this information, any golfer will be able to drastically improve their game and learn how to get the most out of each and every club in their bag. FlightScope www.flightscope.com will help golfers lower their scores by increasing the number of fairways & greens hit in regulation, improving their swing plane and consistently hitting the ball on the sweet spot. In addition, FlightScope tracks the grouping of shots per club, which provides exceptional visual training and eliminates stray shots. Launch monitor technology is a growing category in golf and products vary from simplified radar guns to sophisticated systems like FlightScope. Most golf launch monitors measure sidespin and calculate shot shape based on one foot of ball flight. FlightScope measures shot shape directly providing real time, continuous ball speed, angles and flight path. Phased-Array 3D Doppler radar is the distinct technological feature that sets FlightScope apart from the rest of the field.
Today there are significant differences in equipment performance and using FlightScope makes it easier to select the best equipment for any individual golfer, said Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope. Training with the FlightScope allows golfers to calibrate every club in their bag providing them precise distances for each one. The FlightScope Kudu, the original model, can be used for both outdoor and indoor applications. The hardware and software provide a cost-effective solution that can stand up to the best technology available today, without the price ticket. The FlightScope Kudu is connected to a PC using a USB communications cable and to a power outlet, or battery operated portable power outlet.
