Trackman Vs. Mevo Plus Golf Launch Monitors Comparison Overview

For many of us, price is a major factor when shopping for a golf launch monitor. However, price isn’t the only thing you should look at. After all, the needs of every golfer are different and you may not actually have to pay top dollar to get a launch monitor that will actually help improve your game.

Today we are going to be taking a look at 2 golf monitors at very different price points and describing our experience with them to help give you a clearer picture of what they bring to the table.

Trackman Overview

The Trackman is a nearly $18,000 launch monitor system if you spring for all the bells and whistles.

Even the base package will be much more expensive than the Mevo Plus – we’re talking thousands of dollars. Still, it offers one of the most complete list of tracking data including but not limited to backspin, dynamic loft, club path, impact location, total distance, descent, smash factor and launch angle.

The Trackman was also surprisingly accurate with putts but it did struggle a bit with chips. On drives, it is accurate to within a couple of yards. One of the things we liked most about the Trackman was that it is compatible with a bunch of 3rd party applications.

We also played around with the simulated courses which included Sutton Bay, Hillcrest Country Club and a ton of other renowned courses. The simulations were beautiful and a lot of fun overall.

Mevo Plus Overview

The Mevo Plus is much more affordable at just about $2,000 and it performs comparably to the Trackman.

Like the Trackman, the Mevo Plus uses both radar and cameras (you can even add more cameras to your Trackman setup) to track shot data which includes: spin axis, roll distance, total distance, angle of attack, lateral landing, spin rate, ball speed, flight time, apex height, smash factor and much more.

The Mevo Plus can be used indoors and outdoors but it is more accurate outdoors. With distance it was accurate to within 3 yards and with ball speed we clocked it as accurate within 1 MPH outdoors. Pretty impressive for a launch monitor at this price point.

While the Trackman may be the more entertaining golf launch monitor overall, we believe the Mevo Plus provides enough reliable data to help improve the game of the average golfer.

In 20 Words Or Less

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

Trackman 4 in 20 Words or Less

In 20 Words or Less

The Trackman 4 is simply the most advanced golf simulator/launch monitor currently on the market.

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.

Trackman 4 First Impressions

The Trackman 4 actually felt pretty intimidating as it required a professional setup.

After playing around with the Trackman 4, we were struck with just how accurate this thing is.

Key Features

The dual sensor system allows for one radar sensor to be dedicated to your club head and the other to the ball.

This tandem made for very accurate short and long-game readings. Tested against other launch monitors, we found the Trackman 4 to be accurate within 2 yards for wood and iron shots. With our putters, it did suffer a bit but was still more accurate than most other monitors.

Of course, the Trackman 4 will capture shot data like distance, smash factor, angle of attack and much more. You can even use it to enter into online tournaments on the richly-simulated golf courses from around the world.

The Trackman 4 is about the best indoor golf simulator/launch monitor you can get.

Mevo Plus Selling Points

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
