Serious golfers and club fitters have long relied on advanced launch monitors to measure vital shot data like ball speed, launch angle, and spin rates. However, the high cost of accurate systems often leaves range rats and amateur players data-less.
SkyTrak aims to deliver dependable shot analytics to the masses with its sub-$2,000 launch monitor packed with tracking tech on par with leading industry solutions.
Let’s dive into SkyTrak’s abilities to precisely capture your shot shapes.
Dual Tracking Lasers
At the core of SkyTrak’s accuracy lies its dual tracking lasers utilizing instantaneous Doppler radar technology. By firing low frequency microwave beams, SkyTrak maintains constant contact with the ball from club impact through apex to landing.
Unlike camera-based solutions extrapolating assumptions from images, the continuous tracking beams directly measure velocity changes to derive true performance metrics. SkyTrak further enhances precision with its paired optical sensor tracing ball position 200+ times per second in tandem with the radar.
Together, the hybrid laser and optical tracking provides unmatched real-time tracing capturing even the most minute shot detail changes in:
- Ball speed
- Vertical + horizontal launch angles
- Apex height
- Spin axis + spin rate
- Off-center distance (gear effect)
- Estimated range
All of this data gets streamed instantly to connected mobile devices for quick analysis following each shot.
Portable & Durable Build
Weighing under 15 pounds on a sturdy metal frame, SkyTrak positions as one of the most portable launch monitors available without sacrificing accuracy like lighter plastic builds.
Its compact 16” x 9” footprint can sit discretely behind the hitting area at ranges or fold up for transportation. While optically aligned for optimal performance at 8 feet from the ball, SkyTrak amazingly tracks accurately from 5-20 feet target distance.
This flexible detection field enables use indoors or outdoors, off mats or natural turf, positioned waist height or elevated on mounts. An included protective hood shields SkyTrak’s delicate tracking components from weather and errant strikes.
For under $2,000, SkyTrak goes toe-to-toe on precision with leading $20k monitor brands touting similar 0.1 MPH error margins. Except you can buy 10 SkyTraks for the cost of one TrackMan!
Intuitive Software Interface
Beneath the scientifically-precise hardware lies an elegantly designed software platform for displaying, analyzing, and recording measured shot data. SkyTrak includes licenses for theirproprietary mobile app offering intuitive performance breakdowns following shot sequences.
Core metrics get presented both numerically and visually on familiar HUDs (heads up display) with critical categories highlighted for improvement. Data gets stored locally or to the cloud for progress monitoring and side-by-side comparison against previous sessions or other users.
For entertainment beyond pure practice, official SkyTrak Golf software unlocks simulations modeling world-famous courses with advanced ball physics and environments. This allows playing top tracks virtually while seeing true ball flight paths per your strike data.
Offering accuracy paralleling the top commercial solutions at a bargain price point, SkyTrak launch monitors bring modern shot tracing and analysis capabilities to everyone serious about improving their golf game.
