Optishot 2 Golf Simulator
A few short years ago, a home golf simulator cost upwards of 40-50k. Only a select few could afford the luxury of having a indoor golf simulator in thier home or office. Optishot was launched in 2005 and starting the home golf simulator revolution. The parent company, Dancin dogg golf developed the technology for the optishot golf simulators. At only 399, optishot is the least expensive golf simulator on the market today. Optishot Golf Simulator has allowed the average golfer the opportunity to play indoor golf year round in comforts of thier own home. Optishot will provide years of practice and entertainment without breaking the bank.
Optishot is not a 50 k commerical simulator nor does it pretend to be. Optishot Golf Simulator works only off of club sensors built in 1 small optishot mat. The high end golf simulators utilize ball tracking sensors,club sensors, and high speed cameras. These golf simulators are going to be more accurate, better gameplay and more options, But again they cost more than most cars!
A large number of golfers who buy the optishot, will end up trading up to a more expensive golf simulator in the future. At Spectrum Golf, we will buy back your optishot golf simulator if you ever elect to upgrade your optishot golf simulator. Email us for details.
We have personally played just about every golf simulator on the market. Trugolf, HD Golf, Protee, and P3proswing to name a few. At the end of the day, you just can't beat the optishot golf simulator for value, fun, practice and gameplay. Optishot golf provides a 6 month warranty on all of their golf simulators. The turftop is easily replacable if it does get worn out ( about 20 dollars for a new one ). The optishot mat is virtually indestructable. Optishot also uses real tees in its tee insert.
Optishot takes up about a 10 x 10 area. 9-10 ft ceilings work best with the optishot. Try and slowly swing a club in the area you want to install the optishot. If you have RH/LH players, a 10 x 15 area works best.
Let me start out by saying we have been selling both virtual home golf simulators for the past 2 years and both are excellent golf simulators and each has its advantages and disadvantages while playing indoor golf.
First let me highlight the Optishot Golf Simulator.
is our most popular golf simulator. It utilizes a 16 sensor mat that tracks the golf ball only. Its is extremely easy to install, setup and operate. It is the most user friendly golf simulation unit we sell. Graphics are excellent, gameplay is smooth and course variety is always expanding. Comes with 10 virtual courses and driving range. Premium golf course for the golf simulator run 50 each ( like a video game ). Disadvantages are the hard fiberglass sensor pad, not quite as accurate as some of the other indoor golf simulators, and the turf top is a little thin ( especially if you have a steep swing ). We do carry a thicker turf top. If you are new to golf simulators and want a great entry golf simulation system, Optishot is the way to go. It will provide hours of indoor golf fun and entertainment.
is an excellent indoor golf simulator that costs about 400 dollars more than the Optishot golf simulator. It utilizes a 65 sensor mat that is made of hardened rubber with a steel frame. The 65 sensors makes P3proswing extremely accurate and a great golf simulator training aid. P3proswing comes with 20 courses, and driving range. New for 2013 is On-Line gameplay. Now you can play virtual golf anywhere in the world!
P3proswing requires two golf simulator programs to run, so its a little less user friendly than Optishot. P3proswing golf simulator requires you to put special tape on your wood and putter. Overall graphics and gameplay are excellent. A great golf simulator for someone who really wants to work on their swing mechanics and play great golf courses.
If you are more into playing courses than analyzing your swing and just want to have fun on a golf simulator, Optishot golf simulator is for you. If you want more feedback on your swing and accuracy, then P3proswing is your choice for a golf simulator.
With either Optishot or P3proswing, you will have years of enjoyment playing indoor golf.
