Launch Monitor

Hello TT

I wanted to know what's everyone's experience on getting fit with a launch monitor? I have never used one or really seen one. If I'm not mistaken I do believe it's the box that sits next to your tee box. I would love so great feedback on what kind of results I could get from using one and also what's the biggest benefit I would get from it. Thank you and have a great day.

Find yourself a Titleist Fitting Center that uses TrackMan® in an outdoor setting to do their fittings.

Stick with the guys that know the product the best.

Peace Out!

Hey Manny the launch monitor is used to message driver club head speed, launch angle ball speed and spin rate. Its a great tool to see what ball is right for you and shafts for your clubs  Kerry

TrackMan® is awesome. FlightScope isn't bad.

 

A launch moniter is a must when doing fittings. Ball speed, deviation, AOD, launch angle, spin rates, and so on. It'll help determine which club is right for you, shaft, etc.. Let us know if you use one and how your numbers turned out.

They are a MUST even when buyings used clubs.

I had a Trackman fitting for my initial 910 D2 purchase.  In my opinion, the golf course pro that fit me completely missed the mark.  At the time I didn't realize it, but a year later I got refit by a golf shop (Norman Custom Golf in Oklahoma) using an indoor golf sim and he did a much better job.  Actually had me try several different shafts, several different settings on the driver, and put in the time to find the best launch conditions.  He explained the desired launch angle, affect of the kickpoint and shaft flex, and was very thorough in the fitting.  At the end of the day I reshafted my driver from a Stiff Shafted low kickpoint shaft to a R+ flex mid kickpoint shaft and my driving has been a lot more consistent.

I would highly recommend shopping around for club fitters and find out exactly what they do in their process.  Make sure you get someone who is going to be thorough and not just try to get you in and out as fast as possible. 

Even if you want to toy around with used clubs before spending the big bucks for a new one, launch monitors and simulators are a MUST.  For that matter, doing a side by side between clubs ( iron vs hybrid, fairway wood vs hybrid, current golf club vs new, etc).  

Make sure they use real Titleist balls, Pro V's, NXT's... and not range balls.

Hi Steve

I wanted to know if getting fit at our local centre is the right decision based on the golf balls they use.

The range balls have wear on them and no 2 are alike. The pro there is regarded as one of the best around and a certified Titleist Fitter that uses FlightScope.

I don't know how accurate from shot to shot that the range balls would be but am I to assume that all the range balls are not perfect, therefore the readings from the launch monitor will still work perfect because it's still "apples to apples"?

The ball probably won't fly as far because of the temperature drop but what am I to make of the spin rates? Will they be consistent even though the balls are not the same?

Should I go indoors to another TPI Certified Fitter who uses actual ProV1's and TrackMan or stick to the outdoor fitter?
