Flightscope Mevo Plus Vs. Full Swing KIT Comparison Overview

The Mevo Plus from Flightscope is very similar to the Full Swing KIT that we have been testing as of late. While they are targeted to more or less the same kind of golfing demographic, there are some key differences that the consumer should know about.

After all, neither of these devices are necessarily cheap. Before we go any further, we should also mention that these devices are for players who are serious about improving their game. But which one is right for you? Find out in the following comparison overview.

Flightscope Mevo Plus Overview

The Mevo Plus is a combination golf launch monitor and simulator system that uses a combination of photometric technology and 3-D Doppler radar.

This is the first thing that sets it apart from the Full Swing KIT: the Mevo Plus uses a tandem of a camera and radar sensors. This means that it is viable for both indoor and outdoor use. Like the Full Swing KIT however, the Mevo Plus utilizes the E6 Connect software suite for it’s simulations.

The Mevo Plus is a neat little device that can fit easily in your golf bag. It can give you readings for full swings, chip shots and putts including ball speed, launch speed, ball direction, spin rate, apex height, roll distance, total distance and much more.

Full Swing KIT Overview

The great thing about the Full Swing KIT system is that it is very reliable and convenient.

While it relies solely on radar sensors, the sensors have their own dedicated processor so that the data comes up quick on the heads-up display or your connected device. Speaking of the heads-up display, that’s one feature that the Full Swing KIT has that the Mevo Plus doesn’t.

Connected devices don’t get disconnected either – at least they didn’t during our testing. You get a reliable connection thanks to a separate dedicated processor for media. The Full Swing KIT also uses an HD camera to record your shot and send the footage right to your phone or other connected device.

While the Full Swing KIT and Mevo Plus are similar in many ways, we had some data lag and connectivity issues with the Mevo Plus. The Full Swing KIT was very much pick-up-and-play which endeared to our testers very much. The Full Swing KIT is accurate enough for serious practice and reliable enough for long-term use.

Mevo Plus

In 20 Words Or Less

The Mevo Plus is quite the step up from the standard Flightscope Mevo as it provides much more info.

Full Swing KIT

In 20 Words or Less

The Full Swing KIT launch monitor provides all the essential shot and swing metrics is a sleek, compact package.

Mevo Plus First Impressions

To be quite honest, we were a little intimidated by the sheer volume of metrics this thing provides.

To be brutally honest, we didn’t even know what to do with some of the shot data it provides. We had to look some of them up.

Key Features

The Mevo Plus features 17 practice ranges, 5 simulated golf courses, skills challenges and includes an internal camera for added accuracy.

One of the things we had to look up was lateral landing; but once we did it was all good. The Mevo Plus provides a ridiculous amount of shot data including carry distance, club head speed, apex height, smash factor, ball speed, spin rate, angle of attack, roll distance, spin axis, spin loft, shot shape and of course, total distance.

The Mevo Plus was incredibly accurate outdoors and lost just a touch of accuracy indoors as it relies on 2D Doppler radar for it’s readings. We also really appreciated the wireless Wi-Fi connection interface which made setting up indoors and outdoors very easy.

The Mevo Plus gives more information than the Skytrak but it also does not provide much swing info.

Full Swing KIT First Impressions

Our initial impression of the Full Swing KIT was that it was small and that it had a pretty cool design.

Then, we were really pleased with how quick the setup is for this launch monitor. You don’t have to place metallic stickers on all your balls or use any kind of alignment sticks. All you have to do is set the  Full Swing KIT launch monitor 10 feet behind the ball, select your club and you’re ready to go.

Of course, if you want data sent to your phone or device you need to connect to the monitor but it’s wireless and is also pretty fast and intuitive.

Key Features

The Full Swing KIT can detect and keep track of 16 shot metrics.

These include carry distance, total distance, spin rate, spin axis, face angle, face to path, attack angle, launch angle, ball speed, club speed, smash factor, club path, horizontal angle, apex height, side carry distance and side total distance.

You can also record video of your shot and review it on your connected device. Full Swing has also hinted that more shot metrics may be added in the future. You can also pair the Full Swing KIT with a wide variety of devices like your golf watch, tablet, phone or even Air Pods.

It has a little kickstand in the back so you can easily set it up on any even surface. You can expect about 5-6 hours of battery life which is more than enough for a practice session. It comes with a USB-C charging cable and a pretty neat little travel case.

It’s also very nice that the camera can record in 4K. This yields amazing HD recordings of your shot for you to review any time.

Of course, there is also a golf simulator powered by E6 connect so you can play over 100 courses from around the world in your own home.

Who is the Mevo Plus for?

 The Mevo Plus would be a great choice for scratch players and players who regularly compete in tournaments.

  • Overall, it was more accurate than the SKytrak launch monitor
  • It uses both 3D Doppler radar and an alignment camera so you get the best of both worlds so to speak

Cons:

  • Only 5 simulated courses
  • Currently, the simulations are only compatible with iOS

Overall Score: 94/100

Who Is The Full Swing KIT for?

The Full Swing KIT would be best for players that are working with instructors to improve their game.

While the E6 software suite does provide some fun game modes for recreational use, we definitely got the sense that the Full Swing KIT was mostly for serious practicing. For this reason, it would probably be best for competitive mid handicappers and scratch players serious about improving.

  • It processes your shot information very quickly
  • Very accurate outdoors
  • Fun game modes and online challenges with the E6 Connect software
  • Fits easily in your bag
  • Great for players serious about improving

Cons:

  • A bit pricey
  • You need at least 8 feet of launch space for it to be accurate indoors
  • Relatively limited shot metrics
  • Takes a long time to fully charge

Overall Score: 94/100
