The hand-held golf launch monitor now allows players to analyze their swings and track personal metrics from anywhere
One of the very intriguing products that I viewed at the PGA Show this past January was that of Rapsodo, and their Mobile Launch Monitor in particular.
The Rapsodo MLM (Mobile Launch Monitor) is a personal launch monitor for under $500 USD that gives golfers the ability to learn about their respective golf swings by offering a variety of metrics (Launch Angle, Ball Speed, Distance and more. I was impressed by the brief demonstration that I received on the show floor, but there was one flaw at the time. There was no ability to use the Rapsodo indoors or into a net. A concern for golfers living in climes where year-round golf is not available.
Well, there is good news. The Rapsodo MLM has been tweaked and now offers those capabilities that were once a flaw. Please see the press release as shared below by Brenna Byrne who is an Account Executive with Uproar PR.
Until The Next Tee!!
St. Louis, MO, September 9, 2020 – Rapsodo, the sports data company known for helping athletes analyze real-time metrics to perfect their game, today announces the latest upgrade to its leading golf product, the Mobile Launch Monitor (MLM). The MLM, which uses the same machine learning technology that helps all MLB teams track their performance, gives golfers the ability to analyze their swing by monitoring distance, ball speed, launch angle and more. With the incorporation of its new Net feature, users now have the option to use the MLM and track their metrics from virtually anywhere.
The MLM is the only launch monitor that uses the power and convenience of an iOS device to deliver pro-level data to golfers of every skill level. For existing MLM owners*, accessing the new Net capabilities is as simple as downloading the latest upgrade. For new MLM users, you can get started by downloading the MLM app, placing the connected smart phone or tablet in the MLM cradle looking down at the line of play, choosing net practice and watching the monitor analyze the swing.
Additional features of the net capability include:
- Video swing playback
- Video sharing capabilities – upload practice videos straight to your social channels
- Club gapping that stores your typical distances for every club in your bag
- Airplay compatibility
- Shot library so you can review your shots over time
“At Rapsodo, we are always looking to innovate and put forth the best technology that we can take pride in,” said Batuhan Okur, founder and CEO of Rapsodo. “The Mobile Launch Monitor has been a huge success for our brand, but we believe there are always opportunities to expand and continue to better our products. Integrating Net capability is a prime example of how our team is constantly seeking ways to offer our customers new and exciting experiences – without asking them to buy a whole new device.”
With the Net capability upgrade, users now have the ability to practice their swings from virtually anywhere. Rather than being confined to practicing at a driving range or course, golfers can practice hitting into a net in their backyard, or even take it indoors in the winter months as long as there is sufficient space for the proper setup.
* MLM Net capability is available for select iPhones and iPads, including:
- iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max
- iPad Pro (11”) 2nd Gen, iPad Pro (12.9”) 3rd Gen, iPad Pro (12.9”) 4th Gen
Additional iOS devices will support MLM Net capability in the near future.
