GC2 Swingbay Golf Simulator + FSX Software Package – Certified Pre-owned GC2 Launch Monitor
GC2 Launch Monitors are professional-grade camera-based launch monitors. This device is rechargeable and portable. So, it can be used for both indoor and outdoor games. GC2 is a compact launch monitor that has two high-end sports cams to record the ball’s flight data. Once triggered, the cameras can snap in 10,000 fps to analyze the ball’s characters like launch angle, speed, spin, and trajectory. With the analyzed results, GC2 shows the distance traveled by the ball in its LCD screen, which is a part of the device. So, one needs no PCs to get his/her shot results.
While the GC2 collects only the ball data, adding an HMT (Head Measurement Device) to the GC2 launch monitor will let the player collect his/her club data. An HMT will collect club data like clubhead speed, dynamic loft, smash factor, horizontal club path, and impact location. Such data will be helpful for the player to improve the game seamlessly.
However, in the package, you only get a pre-owned GC2 which certified by Foresight Sports itself. One can completely rely on its data to improve the game.
