Sky Caddie SC4 Review – Best Launch Monitor Under $600?

The Swing Caddie 4 is another strong addition to the complete launch monitor / Golf Simulator in 1 for around $500.

The SC4 set out to improve of the SC300 in almost every way and did an excellent job in accomplishing that.


The moment you unbox the product you can see how professional it is and this is a strong contender to become the must have all in one personal golf launch monitor and simulator combo pack

The are too many winning features to fit into one setting but the most impressive is the accuracy of the device, coupled with its vivid display, remote control, ease of use (with or without an external interface), and handy extra features like calling out your distances.

SC4 Simulator Experience

The device also connects to the E6 as a golf simulator and the device can even automatically change clubs for you as you switch in real time.

This device continues to push the boundaries of what people can expect from personal golf devices around the $500 mark.

This one is easily portable and turns your house into the driving range and the driving range into a personalized, rapid improvement center.

How Accurate Is The SC4?

In terms of accuracy, we found this one to be very close to the correct yardages from the trackman with the irons.

The irons were accurate to within 2 -3 yards most of the time and between 5 – 10 yards with the driver.

The biggest problem we have seen with the product is that the spin rates can be a couple of thousand RPMS too high and it was persistent across the irons and the driver compared to the trackman.

Value For Money? You Bet!

Not bad for a device that costs quite a few thousands dollars less than the commercial models. The SC4 can stand and trade comfortable with the devices in the $1000 range as the technology becomes cheaper and cheaper to make.

Swing Caddy App

The Swing Caddie app has gotten a major upgrade over the 300 and it is very welcomed advancement over the clunky previous versions. You can easily track your yardages and spin rates with each club and how your game is improving over time in much more smooth and efficient manner.

You can even input the loft and lie angle of each club to the app in this all in one tool for golf aficionados.

One Down Side

The numbers on the screen are a little small and if you don’t want to use the audio feature, it can become a little tricky bending to have a look.


From the moment you take this one out of the box, you can see that a lot of every has gone into improving the device over the Sky Caddie SC3 and they have done an excellent job.

This is super accurate in terms of carry distance but the spin can be a bit off. Still one of the most accurate Dopplar monitors on the market thanks, in part, to the barometric pressure sensor.
