GG,
You decided to pull the trigger on any of these yet ?
I've gone two rounds of 9 holes with Arccos and have to say - they work just like it says on the box.
Has missed one tap-in putt, and 1 bunker shot which rolled back to my feet causing an auto-mulligan.

Otherwise - spot on !!

No more pulling the phone out after/before every shot...


Havent pulled the trigger yet, been busy buying and doing other stuff. Im kinda leaning towards gamegolf live though. Not sold on the batteries built into each GPS sensor for Arccos.

You will be lucky to get through a round without running out of battery

Inconsistant shot detection, putting distances way out

I brought a second hand iPhone and it works perfect and uses less than 30% battery

Iv tried S7 and S8 and both were piss poor

Lots of posts on Golf Wrx about it too

Works flawlessly on IOS, much better system than Game Golf imo if you have IOS

Yeah just got an S8 and not keen on a phone with a flat battery at the end of a round.

Realistically its a nice to have toy and not mandatory in my books. Hell i dont even have a laser rangefinder.

The downside with game golf is there doesn't seem to be much work going into improving the system and Mali g it better

Arccos are constantly trying to innovate (Arccos caddie for example)

Rumours of another Arccos system to replace 360 already

I set it up for my recently acquired F7 driver. Used it Saturday for the first time, it sucked only 28% battery for the round (only using it for driver though) and it missed 3 of my drives, one of which I was really keen to see the data on as I crushed it. Haven’t fully worked it out yet but my app kept defaulting to RH player & measuring in yards despite me changing both setting prior to the round. Will have another go next weekend & see what the results are.

Not playing as much golf.

More focused on just enjoying the round , than scoring.

GameGolf works well when it's part of your shot routine and I'm not really interested in the stats at this time.
