SkyTrak | The Cost-Effective Golf Simulator
SkyTrak & R-motion
Golfers with their own driving net at home cannot really know what their shot shape or distance is, so they will have trouble figuring out what areas in their swing that they need to improve. With SkyTrak this is no longer an issue.
SkyTrak’s home golf simulator is heralded as a “complete practice, play and entertainment system.” SkyTrak promised to deliver “commercial quality ball flight simulations that reflect a golfer’s actual performance for game improvement and entertainment” at a fraction of the price of comparable alternatives – and that’s what they did.
A photometric launch monitor with commercial-grade accuracy, SkyTrak uses high-speed cameras to accurately capture five measured data points which include: ball speed, launch angle, backspin, sidespin and side angle. This data is recorded so you can take a number of different strokes with one particular club and compare the results and see the averages for that series of shots.
SkyTrak can be used almost anywhere your heart desires. Use it in your garage, living room, or backyard. You can also take it out to the range with you. The system currently connects wirelessly to your iPad in seconds and gives you the feedback necessary to know where your shots are going. You don’t need a lot of room either. The SkyTrak sits on the floor and casts a laser light out from the device about 12 inches away to designate your ball position. You can use a tee for drives or other tee shots. With the visual and technical readout SkyTrak provides it has never been easier to find weaknesses in your game and to make adjustments instantly to evaluate the improvements. After making adjustments you can then burn the mechanics into your muscle memory. Ultimately these mechanics can then be taken to the course.
