Flightscope Mevo Plus Review


The Flightscope Mevo Plus is a newcomer in the world of portable golf launch monitors. It's a device designed to help golfers of all level improve their game. Compared to the Flightscope Mevo, it is quite an innovative with many updates and upgrades. In the recent PGA merchandise show, it is all the rage. Let's see if it can live up to the hype.


Let's start with the positive sides.

- This launch monitor is able to guarantee optimal accuracy for golf players and it records your every move. It's able to give you a full report on your skills, which you need to further improve your golfing skills. The normal Flightscope Mevo already scores especially good in this department, but the Plus version really took this to a higher level by providing more data parameters on a more thorough level. Fligtschope generally scores better in this a than area its biggest competitor, Skytrak because of its superior data collection method.

- Flighscope Mevo Plus offers 3D simulation to get a better picture of your golfing skills and to help with more precision.

- It has a built-in camera that uses sensors to guarantee a more person-oriented approach. This way, the launch monitor is able to better track your movements while you're practicing your skills. This surely is a true improvement in comparison to the former Flighscope model that didn't have a built-in camera.

- Another improvement with reference to the former Fligtschope Mevo model is the wide assortment of mini-games that the Flightscope Mevo Plus has to offer. Just as is the case with Skytrak, the Plus model not only focuses on the business side of things but remembers that there should be a little bit of fun involved too. Besides, it's a proven fact that games can help with your ability to learn new skills.

- Flighscope Mevo Plus has also given you the opportunity to use a Wi-fi Hotspot, which causes the connection to be more reliable. That's another difference with its predecessor and is definitely an added plus.

Of course, there are also downsides to the Flighstcope Mevo Plus.

- When it's fully charged, it can last for only about 2 hours before you need to charge the launch monitor again. In comparison, other launch monitors score much better in this area. For example, the Skytrak Launch Monitor and Golf Simulator can last up to 5 hours on a single charge. That's a significant difference!

- When creating this new Flightscope Model, the manufacturers decided to change the size of the launch monitor. Namely, the Plus model is way larger than the normal Flightscope Mevo model. While still being portable, the Plus version is a lot less compact than its predecessor, which can cause little practical problems to arise.

- In contrast to the Skytrak Launch Monitor and Golf Simulator, the Flighstcope Mevo Plus needs more space to function when it's being used indoors. This has to do with the differences in technology. Skytrak uses camera-based technology, while Flightscope uses radar-based technology. Because of this, the Flightscope Mevo Plus model is not an ideal alternative for the Skytrak model if you don't have access to relatively big spaces. Unfortunately, that's the case for a lot of people. When it comes to using these kinds of launch monitors indoors, the Skytrak Launch Monitor and Golf Simulator seems to thus have the upper hand.

- Another regrettable evolution in comparison to its predecessor is the increase of the purchasing price. Namely, you don't need to pay more than $500 for the normal Flightscope Mode and that's a big contrast pertaining to the Plus model. When you want to buy the latter launch monitor, you will easily have to spend about $2000 and while that's about the same amount of money that you would pay for a Skytrak launch monitor, it could be a disadvantage for Flightscope Mevo Plus because it's the newcomer on the market. Skytrak, however, is more of a pioneer.


Overall, there seems to be an acceptable price-quality ratio when it comes to the Flightscop Mevo Plus launch monitor. Admittedly, it's on the expensive side of the spectrum, but the added premium aspects pertaining to the other Flightscope models make it worth your while. To conclude, it seems as if the Plus model is definitely able to prove its worth and give Skytrak some tantamount competition!
