Club Fitting

FlightScope 

FlightScope® is an ideal tool for custom club fitting. It provides accurate ball flight and club travel information – unlike most other instruments on the market, which only offer launch data. To optimize shaft selection, the Acceleration Profile provided by FlightScope makes it easy to determine when players are fitted with the correct shaft for their specific swing and loading of the shaft during the swing. The Acceleration Profile measured by FlightScope provides an instantaneous measure of the quality of the golf shaft fit for the player being tested. Accurate club and ball speeds, shot shape, launch angles, carry distance and spin rates comprise the dataset required in order to perform a custom fitting procedure.

In addition to the clubhead speed at impact, the FlightScope system also provides the clubhead speed profile before, through, and after the strike. The FlightScope system also measures a 3D club path through the strike zone, providing the fitter with club direction in both the vertical and horizontal directions.

FlightScope offers fantastic club fitting software for instructors. It can help the new golfer to learn and memorise what works best with ball tracking and club fitting software. FlightScope allows golfers to analyse and understand the different strengths and weaknesses of clubs for various distances and angles. Custom club fitting software and analysis tools provide valuable information to improve any golfer’s game.

Technology has taken sport to a level of competition that is unlike anything seen before. More accurate sports measurement systems have resulted in improvements in many aspects of many sports - not only for players, but for spectators, too. One such technological advent is that of 3D ball tracking. This is great for golfers, for example, who are looking for a ball tracking monitor or 3D golf radar and a method of golf swing analysis that provides genuinely useful feedback. If you've been wondering how a 3D Doppler tracking golf radar works to enhance your game, wonder no more!

The secret of FlightScope's 3D ball tracking success lies in the patented phased array tracking technology that is used in the device. The two main technological aspects of the FlightScope 3D motion tracking device are its radar technology (very similar to that which is used in the military), and its advanced industrial electronics. So what does this mean for you in a practical sense? Well, it means you have access to a level of ball measurement and ball tracking that is difficult to beat.


How does the 3D Doppler Tracking Golf Radar work?

FlightScope's 3D ball tracking devices and golf launch monitors can measure a number of variables related to golf balls.

These include:

•real time tracking
•ball speed
•both vertical and horizontal launch angles
•sidespin
•backspinHow does 3D Doppler Tracking Radar work with golf clubs?

FlightScope's 3D motion tracking devices are not just about ball measurement; they can also help with your golf swing analysis by measuring variables related to your golf club, such as:

• club head speed
• club attack angle
• club path
• club face angle
• dynamic loft

The ball's trajectory after it has been launched is also tracked, which means you have exceptionally comprehensive ball measurement information instantly available, aiding you in your ongoing quest to improve your golf swing. It is also printable for later analysis.

The FlightScope 3D Doppler Tracking Golf Radar was the official 3D motion tracking device at the 2008 PGA Fall Expo, which just goes to show that this ball tracking monitor is a master of its game. By using it, you could be a master of yours by accurately developing that perfect golf swing.
