I had hoped that there would be some talk of this unit on this forum.

Noticed some things that were odd.
The smash factor on the PGA tour averages show for a 8 or 7 iron for carry about 160 yds to 170 yds and 87 to 90 mph swing speed and ball speed 115 mph to 120 mph. The smash factor is about 1.32 - 1.33 for men.

The uneekor shows at about 6:30 into that video a shot that has a 1.54 smash factor for the iron. Also that number really bounces around.

This unit would be great for the club data but I am wondering how good that data is. I assume it is just measuring the club speed and the ball speed and doing the calculation to create the smash factor. If this was accurate it would be an interesting test to hit some limited flight balls that do not come off the club face as fast as a real ball and see then how the club speed relates to the ball speed.

Cory in Edmonton at Par2pro is supposed to have one of these units and will be testing in a while. I hope to be able to spend some time there while he is doing some testing.

I will also be interested to see if one could use a 1/16" size dot pattern on the ball and still have the unit read. If so then possibly one could use (sign vinyl) and a hole punch to make the dots and have them fit in the dimple of the ball and possibly not rubbed off by the screen friction and not be in any danger of cutting the screen with an edge of the vinyl dot.

Many questions for this unit so interested in any others that have grabbed one and are willing to do some tests.

Good to hear about being able to use the data off this unit as well. That way their software that seems to calculate shorter carry will not be an issue.

Others have reported some issues with club data. I hear the folks at Uneekor are looking into it. The ball data appears to be good but it's still new and not many have posted data comparisons with GC2 or other LM's yet. The Uneekor has a lot of potential at its price range of $6k-8k.

Anyone who has a system can you comment on putting:

How is it for being accurate and starting on line when your real putt is on line? How accurate is it? Does the system show a perfect straight putt when on line and slightly off line when the real putt is slightly off as well?

If it gives you an accurate read with putts, this would be one system where you would not want the adjustment to the putting to be used as it is now in JNPG.
That way you could aim your real putt to allow for the breaks and not need to aim in game. I doubt there is any way to not use that putting correction in game.

Also how many inches does the ball need to roll for the Uneekor to be able to read the putt? A way to test would be to set up possibly a cover (like a sheet of green paper) and have the ball roll under it and see how close the covered area can be and still read the putt accurately. This would help to know when using a platform to hit and putt off of, and only having a foot or so before the ball falls off the platform.

Since the Uneekor was integrated via OGT Interface, it will use same putting correction as all other OGT Interface users. Besides, even if the Uneekor was super accurate with reading HLA of putts thru various launch directions, wouldn't it be moot anyway since launch direction in the game might not match what you see due to size of screens and distance from screen to hitting position, etc..?

To some degree yes, but it would simulate a real putt a lot closer. Example would be most straight 10 foot putts in real life are not gimme's as a degree off line will miss but with the built in correction it makes most of those putts quite easy. But again it is a sim and putting can be hard enough for some.

As for screen distance and perception in game, if you know you have a 8 foot putt and need to play it left edge, it is easy to picture a cup on the floor 8 feet away and as long as you are on your center line can line up a putt a hair to the left and putt to that spot. Doing the same for a 20 foot putt would not be as easy.

All I am saying is that if it does have good accuracy in putting it would be nice to use that in simulation.

I hear what you are saying. 8ft or 12 ft in the game doesn't look the same as in real life. It looks a lot closer in the game. The GC2 reads putts that are further out well enough to not need the correction but 4-10 footers do. we'll see. Interesting idea for sure.

I'm on vacation and just reading through emails, but I believe I was told the ball is read for the first 12"-18" from impact. When I hit a few putts on the QED it was pretty accurate compared to what the GC2/OGT interface was reading.
