Flightscope Mevo Plus Pro Package Review – Do You Need It?

The Flightscope Mevo Plus is an excellent launch monitor for personal use at the driving range or in an indoor golf simulator. If you are considering buying one you may be wondering about the optional add-on Mevo Plus Pro Package.

I purchased the Pro Package with my Mevo Plus and I’m glad that I did. Unfortunately I see quite a bit of confusion about what it is exactly and people don’t really understand if they need it or not.

The short answer is if you care about the additional data parameters provided with the pro package – buy it! If you don’t care about those, save your money!

For more explanation, continue reading or check out the video below.

What exactly is the Mevo Plus Pro Package

The Mevo Plus Pro Package is simply a software upgrade for the Mevo Plus that gives you additional data parameters. Although it’s a little bit confusing, the launch monitor itself is exactly the same. There is no difference in performance with the hardware itself.

I repeat. The Pro Package DOES NOT make the Mevo Plus any more accurate. This is the biggest misconception about the pro package I see online.

For the record, I find the Mevo Plus to be plenty accurate already.

After you purchase the pro package you will receive an email with an activation code and instructions to activate within the FS Golf App. It’s pretty simple and should only take a minute or two.

Once activated, the additional data will show up right next to all the other data in the FS Golf App as well as FS Skills and E6 Connect, although E6 connect won’t quite include everything.

Mevo Plus Pro Package Data Parameters

So what is the extra data? See below. 

In short, with the pro package you are getting more “club” data. All launch monitors give ball data, which is what the ball is doing after you hit it. To get most club data included you generally need a top tier launch monitor.

Out of all of pro package data I find Club Path, Face to Path, and Face to Target the most important and pretty much the only reason I purchased the pro package myself. Here they are explained.

Club Path

Club path is the path of the club through the hitting zone. This will show up as a degree right or left. For a right-handed golfer, a club path with a degree Right would mean in to out and Left would mean out to in. 

Your club path will determine which line you start the ball on.

Face to Path

Face to Path will tell you the angle of your club face relative to the club path. If your club path is 4 degrees right and your face to path is 2 degrees left, this should create a nice draw that starts out right and draws back towards the center.

Face to Target

Face to Target is the club face angle relative to the target (or center line).

Low Point

While low point is not super important to me, it is nice to have. This will tell you the lowest point of your swing relative to the ball. This parameter is given in inches so 3” would mean the low point of the swing is in front of the ball and you contacted the ball first, then the ground. A negative low point would mean you hit the ground first and would most likely be a “fat” shot.

The other parameters in the pro package are most likely not of much interest to the average golfer and would be more useful for club fitters or possibly teaching professionals.

Do you need the pro package?

Again, the performance of the Mevo Plus is exactly the same with or without the pro package. The only difference is you get the additional measurements listed above. 

You certainly don’t need this data to get a huge benefit from your launch monitor. If you understand the golf swing you can pretty much understand what you did with your swing to cause the shot you just hit. 

If however, you do like having the actual measurement rather than just knowing your club face must have been open to hit that slice, the pro package might be for you.

I will say that seeing the club data discussed above has made me a better golfer as I am more aware of my club path and face.

Mevo Plus Pro Package Alternatives

I was looking for a launch monitor that includes the club data given in the pro package. The Flightscope Mevo Plus 2023 Edition comes in at $2199 and the one-time Pro Package upgrade is $1000 so this launch monitor option is $3199.

You can also use Coupon Code: FRIENDLY for 5% Off at Flightscope.

It also includes a lifetime license to E6 Connect simulator software with 10 courses. All of this with no subscription. I don’t know about you but I hate subscriptions.

The other launch monitors I considered were:

Skytrak – Less than $2000 + Annual Subscription

Skytrak has been one of the best home launch monitors on the market for quite a while. Unlike the mevo plus, Skytrak uses high speed cameras to measure the ball at impact which means it doesn’t need a lot of space. This alone can make it the winner for a lot of people that don’t have the room for a radar based launch monitor.

Skytrak measures:

  • Ball speed
  • Backspin
  • Side Angle
  • Launch Angle
  • Spin Axis
  • Total Spin
  • Carry Distance
  • Total Distance
  • Distance Offline
  • Smash Factor

This is certainly enough data for a quality launch monitor but as you can see it doesn’t measure club data.

The annual subscription comes in with their plans for software features and connection to simulation software. Out of the box with no subscription you get a basic driving range and that’s all. The measured data does not change with the subscription.

Bushnell Launch Pro – $3500 + Annual Subscription

The Bushnell Launch Pro had been just released when I was shopping for a launch monitor in early 2022. It is actually the exact same product as the Foresight GC3 as Foresight and Bushnell are owned by the same parent company. The only difference between the two is that the Bushnell version requires an annual subscription to access all of the software features.

Bushnell launch pro vs mevo plus

Bushnell Launch Pro vs Mevo Plus

You can purchase the Launch Pro as a “ball data only” unit for $1999 but if you want club data you’ll have to add an additional $1500. To have access to Foresight’s software (or any other 3rd party) you need the Gold subscription at $499/yr.

Favorite Multi-Use

Bushnell Launch Pro

Our favorite launch monitor for those that want portability but excellent use in a golf simulator!

I found these two alternatives to be the closest in offering to the Mevo Plus but found that the Mevo Plus gave me the most bang for my buck and with no annual subscription!

Building a golf simulator can be super confusing with so many different components that all work together. It’s even more frustrating when the launch monitors all have their different subscription plans and additional features for purchase on top of the hardware itself.

Hopefully this gives you some more clarity on the Pro Package offering for the Mevo Plus!
