"SuperSpeed Golf is best known for their speed training system and protocols to help you swing your golf clubs faster. Their new PRGR portable ball launch monitor expands their product lines to include a compact, easy-to-use, and accurate device to give you more information on your golf shots.
Let’s take a deeper dive into the PRGR ball launch monitor from SuperSpeed Golf.
PRGR BALL LAUNCH MONITOR FEATURES
The new SuperSpeed PRGR ball launch monitor has most of the important features you want in a personal launch monitor device. In addition to core features like club speed, ball speed, smash factor, and carry distance, the PRGR also includes:
Extended higher resolution display
Higher quality Processor
Ability to Toggle Modes of Measurement (Metric / Imperical)
Keeps recent history up to 500 Shots
Works indoors into a net or outside at a driving range
Higher Quality, Dual, and Faster Doppler Radar Sensor
New Scientific Launch Algorithms for Increased Precision and Consistency
Improved ability to read high lofted wedges
A tripod connector port on the back of the device
When used in tandem with the SuperSpeed training system, golfers will have a complete training protocol to monitor swing speed gains that translate directly to carry distance and ball speed. This one-to-punch allows golfers to see their improvement in real time, further reinforcing the effectiveness of the SuperSpeed Golf training system.
PERFORMANCE AND IMPRESSIONS
Out of the box, the PRGR launch monitor is definitely compact and easily portable. The entire device fits inside the palm of your hand, making it one of the smaller launch monitor options on the market.
Each unit comes with detailed instructions on how to set it up for optimal performance and shot tracking. For best results, I found placing the PRGR between 3.5 - 5 feet behind the ball provided the most accurate read-outs. The unit is powered by four AAA batteries and is best used outdoors with good lighting. In addition to golf, the PRGR can also be used for baseball pitching or hitting, and any sport where tracking the speed of an object is helpful.
The PRGR was fairly accurate with tracking my golf shots throughout my bag. As with other launch monitors of this type, it’s very important to setup the device in the proper location behind the golf ball, as discussed above. In comparison to the Top Tracer-equipped driving range I visited for my review, the PRGR yardages were within 5-10 yards of the more comprehensive system, and iron shots were within 5 yards. Not bad for a personal launch monitor device.
I have not had the opportunity to test the PRGR indoors as of the time of this review, however if its like any other radar-based launch monitor, a clear line of sight and proper lighting will be required to accurately track golf balls flying into a net.
At $229.99, the SuperSpeed Golf PRGR ball launch monitor is a fantastic addition to the brand’s swing speed training system. It is also a good ball launch monitor to be used on its own, offering accurate shot distances and just enough information to give you more detail on your golf shots. While the monitor does not track spin rates, the metrics it includes is more than enough to satisfy any golfer serious about improving their game."
