Rapsodo MLM Vs. Mevo Plus Golf Launch Monitors Comparison Overview

It’s important to compare golf launch monitors before making a purchasing decision mainly because these things can be as expensive as a new set of clubs. Then there are the stats that they track and whether they are relevant for you at you skill level.

For instance, some launch monitors track data that you have no idea what to do with. Even in our time, we have had to look up some stats to see what they mean. In the following article we will be comparing two different golf launch monitors to see which one would work best for you.

Rapsodo MLM Overview

The Rapsodo MLM tracks shots by using the camera on your iPhone or iPad.

The data it does track includes distance, ball speed, club head speed, smash factor, launch angle and launch direction. The data is pretty basic overall but what is really helpful is that the Rapsodo MLM will give you instant video playback of your swing with the applicable data superimposed onto it.

That way, you can see your swing exactly as it is with helpful data and how it applies to each shot. It should also be noted that the Rapsodo MLM can be used both indoors and outdoors but that certain features like active shot trace is only available in outdoor mode.

For the everyday golfer and high handicapper, the Rapsodo MLM provides enough data. Some of the readings seemed dubious to us like club head speed. So there is some concern about the accuracy and consistency of this device.

Mevo Plus Overview

The Flightscope Mevo Plus instilled much more confidence in us in terms of accuracy and reliability.

The Mevo Plus uses mainly radar technology to track shots and your swing but it can also be paired with your phone or camera-enabled device to record video as well. As a radar device, it does lose some accuracy indoors but overall, it was more accurate and consistent than the Rapsodo MLM.

With the Mevo Plus, you get lateral landing, vertical launch angle, shot shape, spin loft, spin axis, total distance, roll distance, angle of attack, smash factor, apex height, flight time, ball speed, spin rate, carry distance information and more.

The Mevo Plus is definitely more for scratch players looking to hone their skills to a very fine degree while the Rapsodo would be better suited to beginners.

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

Rapsodo Launch Monitor in 20 Words or Less

In 20 Words or Less

The Rapsodo Launch Monitor is great because it can be reliably used both indoors and outdoors.

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.

Rapsodo Launch Monitor First Impressions

The Rapsodo Launch Monitor took more time to set up but performed admirably indoors.

Accuracy indoors was a bit more reliable than with the Swing Caddie SC300i.

Key Features

The Rapsodo Launch Monitor tracks a few metrics that the Swing Caddie SC300i doesn’t. For instance, you get shot shape, launch direction and club speed. It will also provide data for shot distance, ball speed, smash factor and launch angle.

The Rapsodo relies on the camera of your iPhone 7 (and above) or your iPad 2017 (and up). Some features like net mode are only compatible with iPhone 8 and above. The shot trace feature can also only be used in outdoor mode.

The Rapsodo has some interesting features but you need to fiddle with it a lot more.

Who is the Mevo Plus for?

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

We’ll put it this way, the Mevo plus is used and endorsed by tour pros. Unlike the Skytrak, the Mevo Plus is not intended for recreational players.


  • It provides very advanced shot metrics
  • 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
  • For all the advanced metrics and accuracy, it’s still cheaper than a lot of high-end launch monitors


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

Overall Score: 94/100
