Trackman 4 Vs. Full Swing KIT Comparison Overview
When it comes to golf launch monitors and simulators, it can be very hard to decide on the device that will fit your needs the most. The lines between golf simulators, golf launch monitors and even golf GPS devices are getting blurrier by the day.
Of course, the best thing to do when shopping is to keep your needs firmly in mind and not get swayed by fancy features you won’t ever use. To help you sort through your options, we will be comparing the Trackman 4 against the Full Swing KIT.
Trackman 4 Overview
The Trackman 4 is a professional system that is usually reserved for instructors, fitters and other commercial applications.
As a testament to that fact, most Trackman systems have to be custom installed by technicians. However, if you are really serious about improving your game or providing the most immersive golf simulator experience for your friends, family or patrons, it’s not a bad way to go.
The Trackman 4 beautifully and accurately simulates over 120 courses from around the world and is very accurate with shot metrics. It uses 2 radar systems and a camera to yield acute readings on face angle, carry distance, club speed, ball speed, spin rate and much more.
Full Swing KIT Overview
The Full Swing KIT retails for about $4000 which is much cheaper than the Trackman 4 and it’s actually portable.
Unlike the Trackman system, you don’t need any professional installation. In fact, one of the things we loved the most about the Full Swing KIT is that it is fast and easy to set up. Simply turn it on, select your club and set it down about 10 feet behind the ball and you’re ready to go.
It’s about the size of a modern tablet and uses a radar system to track data like spin rate, carry distance, total distance, smash factor, club speed, face angle, apex height and more. The Full Swing KIT also uses E6 Connect simulation software to provide a very nice simulation experience.
Unless you are a rec-center owner or a professional instructor, you wouldn’t have a lot of need for the Trackman 4. It’s very expensive and while the simulations are immersive and the data extensive, it’s not for the everyday golfer. The Full Swing KIT gives you what you need to improve and can be used indoors and outdoors.
