What's for Launch? Sureshotgps Launch Monitor E VER wanted your very own launch monitor? Well now you can with the release of the SURESHOTGPS LAUNCH MONITOR. It's small, lightweight (just 206 grams) and best of all it's portable, making it an ideal gadget for the golfer looking to groove a swing and fine- tune their club distances. This launch monitor gives you a range of statistical feedback, including swing speed, ball speed, distance and smash factor — a stat that measures the ratio between ball speed and clubhead speed. (In essence, how cleanly energy is transferred from club to ball.) It has a four-inch LCD display screen and a range of 30- 300 metres. It runs off standard AAA batteries (which come with the unit) and it also has a remote control so you can change settings at any given time. You can also have some fun using it with two game modes to make your practice less mundane. Another clever feature is the monitor's recording component, which keeps track of your averages for statiscial analysis. This thing will take off. OTG The Sureshotgps Launch Monitor comes in two colours.
