FlightScope, an award-winning feature-rich device which is far more than just a launch monitor, is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. In addition to collegiate golf programs, retailers, academies, golf equipment manufacturers, clubfitters and green-grass and practice facilities have embraced FlightScope's state-of-the-art technology.

FlightScope first was demonstrated in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., in 2001 and was introduced at the 2004 PGA Merchandise Show. In addition to its use at high-profile teaching academies and clubfitting venues worldwide, FlightScope is utilized for personal practice by tour professionals and avid golfers devoted to game improvement. It is known for its ease of use as well as the precision and accuracy of its technology. FlightScope employs phased array and ballistic tracking technology to record accurately the ball trajectory and to provide actual launch data. The characteristic distinguishing FlightScope from existing launch monitor technology is that FlightScope records the trajectory accurately in the precise environment in which the ball travels, thereby providing actual rather than implied data. The resultant ability of golfers, clubfitters and instructors to see the actual ball trajectory at various angles allows them to make precise adjustments for enhanced performance.
