Launch monitors are a huge part of modern golf and help coaches and players dive into the data behind their game, enabling them to analyse where players go right and wrong, but typically, in order to acquire this equipment that is so technologically advanced, it costs thousands and thousands of pounds. That was until Rapsodo came along...

The Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor costs just $425 and provides golfers with all the details they need to get a better understanding about their game and take practice to the next level. Check out our review below as we test the Rapsodo MLM at Farleigh Golf Club:

GOLFMAGIC VERDICT

The Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor is the best launch monitor on the market for under $500!

We've seen a few brands attempt to create a cheaper alternative to the likes of Trackman and Foresight Sports, but no one has executed it as well as Rapsodo.

The data is extremely accurate and apart from not providing spin rates, it allows you to get an in-depth look inside your game and break down every club in your bag.

Collaborating the launch monitor with my mobile device was extremely simple and the instructions were clear. Once you get on the driving range, setting up the Rapsodo MLM takes a matter of minutes.

The app itself is also very clear and simple to use. Seeing your latest sessions and being able to go back into them and watch your shots is a brilliant feature of this product.

Having been custom fitted for my irons, I already have a good understanding about my shot data and to see how accurate the MLM was really took me by surprise given the price.

Spin data is an important part of shot analysis, which the Rapsodo doesn't provide, but for something that costs less than $500, you expect it to have less features than a Trackman.

The shot tracer element is a useful addition to the MLM as you're able to watch your shots and see which direction the ball went and from there you can analyse your swing to see why the ball may have travelled a certain way.

The only fault with the shot tracer was that it would sometimes provide a line that was lower than my actual shot, but the most important aspect of the tracer is the direction, which was spot on.

Game modes such as closest to the pin and longest drive mean you can have a little more fun with the product as well, either on your own or with a friend. Plus, you can socially share your shots and watch what other golfers around the world have shared too.

If you're an amatuer golfer looking to take your practice to the next level, or a goal coach who wants to dive into your clients' data at a more affordable price, then the Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor is the perfect option.
