There are many golf simulator packages on the market. But only a few are purchased by people with both higher-budget and lower-budget.
The irony is lower-budget customers are technically tricked to buy the same product bought by the higher-budget customer. This is the result of not knowing enough and falling prey to retailers who just want to sell their products somehow.
Let’s put an end to this. We are discussing a golf simulator package every day, from its pros to cons; most of them are targeted for the budget golfer who is looking for a minimum-budget golf simulator package for regular practice sessions.

FlightScope Mevo Plus (Mevo+) HomeBay Golf Simulator Studio Package – FlightScope Mevo+ Golf Launch Monitor
Flightscope introduced this Mevo+ only in 2020 as a successor for its existing Mevo launch monitors.
Like Mevo, this Mevo+ is also using the same Doppler radar concept to measure the ball. Unlike the Mevo, this Mevo+ can do more than its predecessor.
While the Mevo can only collect eight parameters of a golf shot, this Mevo+ can collect more than fifteen such as clubhead speed, ball speed, carry distance, smash factor, horizontal and vertical launch angle, ball spin, spin axis, total ball roll distance, angle of attack, club impact speed, shot shape, Spin Loft, Flight time and apex height.
The Mevo+ is a tiny simulation-enabled golf launch monitor, which comes with 5 pre-installed golf courses, seventeen practice ranges, and an internal camera to align the target easily.
The Mevo+ launch monitor connects through Wi-Fi and it can support The Golf Club 2019.
This Mevo+ launch monitor can work better than the SkyTrak launch monitor in the outdoors.
However, on the indoors, the device needs 16′ length in the play area to operate at its fullest capacity like in the outdoors. With the required length, the Mevo+ can work just fine like SkyTrak.
FlightScope Practice App
The Mevo+ works in coordination with FlightScope’s special mobile app. The FlightScope mobile app takes your game on Mevo+ to the next level by providing real-time shot data almost instantly. The app has an automatic video recording feature to record your swing and replay it in slow motion.

FlightScope Mevo Plus (Mevo+) HomeBay Golf Simulator Studio Package – HomeBay Golf Simulation Screen and Enclosure
