I would like to build a Simulator setup in my basement and would like to get ideas from you. Please post your setup pictures in this thread.
Im looking to install a simulator and realise that there are many on the market. Im looking for cost effectiveness but also the best for my budget ! Assume i have a budget of $7-10k - what is the best Simulator i can get ? Ive looked at Trugolf and one or 2 others -
thanks in advance
I thought it might be beneficial to newbies looking for information to list some information links (not all inclusive).
For golf simulators:
Hi, so I have completed my simulator build but I used metal beams for the frame. Now the front two metal (side) beams that the screen is connected to are exposed. Would like any suggestions on what to use to protect these beams to prevent ricochet? I know GT uses these foam blocks/strips but I...
Hello guys, I'm looking for ideas or alternatives.
The only suitable space for my golf simulator would be my 2 car garage since it has a 11' ceiling. The only problem is the setup needs to be removable so I can park my cars. I was thinking a retractable impact screen hung from the ceiling. ...
I recently purchased the SkyTrak and am planning on building an enclosure with impact screen and projector. Can anyone help me out on what to look for in a projector? I have a 12 foot wide by 10 foot high screen and plenty of ceiling space.
Also, I am thinking of buying the Microbay enclosure...
Hey any help is appreciated. I got a Vector Pro launch monitor coming and I've seen some software for it in old auctions on eBay and was wondering if anyone could identify it or where to get it ?? Thanks !!
Ok guys, I have been using the Skytrak full metal jacket (FMJ) and simply put, its awesome. Its certainly the best case I have seen. The cutouts for the Skytrak cams etc. are perfect. I played my recent rounds with it and there were 0 no reads or misreads. The case is very solid and made extremely...
I'm in the preliminary stages of planning a sim room, and want to make sure my understanding about projectors is correct. I'm looking at the Optoma GT760 Projector (http://www.projectorcentral.com/Optoma-GT760.htm). I'm planning on a 12 foot wide screen, so my understanding is that with this...
I have always been keen on having a home studio for the winter months here in Scoland. I live nowhere near a driving range and I'm sure having the ability to hit balls over the winter would help my game.
Using half of my garage gives me a hitting space of 21 feet long x 9.5 feet wide...
I was wondering if there are any competitors to the SkyTrak (ball stats and price) emerging in 2016 or beyond?
Here is a little back ground
I purchased an optishot 2 years ago.
At the same time I built myself a stance platform with 2" insulation board.
For the stance and hitting area I bought a monster turf 1 3/8" 48x60
from all turf mats.
I made cutouts for the 2 rows of sensors in the turf and...
I'm looking for a golf mat to work on things indoors. My main factors are shock absorption (I want to take a 'divot') and price. Please let me know what mats you have been most happy with.
I'm looking at getting a launch monitor but I also need club data. Anyone have comments on club data accuracy using a mat (Protee, GSA PX2) vs a camera system (Foresight HMT, GSA)? I want a camera based ball track system for flight accuracy, but need good club data since my golf game needs...
Long time lurker and occasional poster here.
After 3 years or so of waiting for the right components to come out and convincing the wife, the golf sim is now complete, and quite frankly... I think its pretty damn impressive.
I’ll go into fairly extensive detail here so that folks can follow...
My impact screen has black ball / scuff marks all over it. They look more like rubber scuffs. I tried washing with soap and mr clean magic eraser. Didn't do a thing. Now I am looking for ideas to solve my problem that don't include getting a new impact screen because it is built into the...
I'd like to add a camera set-up to do live video analysis indoors in my hitting bay.
I have a newish laptop with a good graphics card, and I plan to add a USB 3.0 camera.
Just not sure about the camera specifics or which software to use. I don't want to buy $500+ professional software for...
I'm looking to find a hitting strip asap locally, is there anywhere or anyone selling either of these in GTA region? Or anything on amazon prime? I couldn't find a thing...
I see a lot of people using BenQ or other DLP projectors for their sim. Do you guys not notice any rainbow effect from the DLP?
I just purchased a new Poly blend impact screen off of ebay. The price and discription seemed good. See below
MOVIE SCREEN IMAGE QUALITY. STRONG ENOUGH TO TAKE A REAL GOLF BALL. The Poly blend is commercial grade and designed for heavy use. The trade off is some grain in the image. If you...
Should be no different than any impact screen.
Newbie here, I’ve tried to consume as many threads as needed to feel educated enough to post. Thank you to all for the contributions that have created a tremendous resource.
My intent here is to ensure I understand the current state of all the recommendations before I embark on this project. ...
Just saw a Tweet from FS. Looks like only 1 sticker will be needed.
Hopefully more updates to come
After reading some more tweets it's apparently a firmware update to hmt, for fitting putters...
Anyone know if there is any way of getting the GC2 to work with E6 simulation software?
GC2 is a great LM, but I'm not so impressed with the foresight simulation software.
Hi at all,
I´m quite new to this forum. I found because I need some helpwith my preowned Vector Pro with manual lenses.
The Power LED is not indicating the operating or charging mode. Also the two green front LED´s are only sometimes indicating the operating mode.
But the unit will be...
My firmware is the updated 3.10 but I was curious which one has the menu on the right instead of the left and the data number page is black instead of white.
My local golfsmith has this version and I would like to go to it if possible.
Has anyone tried this as an impact screen (from virtual-golf-simulator)? Thanks
I have been away for a bit. What is the current price for a HMT to connect to the GC2. I am hoping they are a bit cheaper so I can make the plunge!
Hi there , I just set up perfect golf with my gc2 , looks great but I'm pretty sure my gc2 is not reading my shots rights, everything is going super short and duck hooks and wierd stuff like this , I do shoot the odd shots like this don't get me wrong but pretty sure the gc2 is not reading right....
I have a couple of golf nets with grommets.
I want to hang it in my barn and stretch it in between the wooden beams. The beams are about 16 feet apart. I also already have a few mats
I am looking for suggestions on weather to use some sort of conduit, or a steel cable to feed through...
Hi there I'm having problems pairing my GC2 to to my computer . It's asking for a passcode and I'm not sure what the pass code is or where can I get it. Have you guys come across this problem?
Can some one explain how to interpret these measurements. For instance relationship of ball speed, back spin, side spin to carry distance. I realize HMT is needed to truly diagnose one's swing tendency to render solutions. However I would think the GC2 data will provide some clues. Also is...
Hi there, just wondering which projector to go with , my screen is about 118 inches wide and about 101 inches high, I am able to mount the projector anywhere so that's not a problem , looking not to cheap out , I hear allot of talk about the Benq 1085 st but it seems the lumins are a bit shy , is...
Hey guys im looking for a decent projector for my optishot sim. It will be about 11ft from screen, im hitting from about 10 ft. Was looking at benq1080st but my budget is about 600, less is better. It will only really be used for optishot in the garage. 12x9 net hq2 material from par2pro
Hi all. New to this site but sounds like some good information on here. I am looking to get a system that is accurate as a simulator and can work out on the range a well. Seems like GC2/HMT is the way to go. Any advice would be appreciated.
I am very close to finishing my sim room and it is one of the best home improvement projects I have ever done! I will post pictures in the next couple weeks when painting and shelves are done but I had a mat question and hopefully you can see the pictures. I have a true golf May and I like...
In need of some help. Long story short, I'm to the point where I've got backup archery netting and HQ screen installed. Using angle iron along the ceiling of my garage, and also along the right vertical wall. I have no wall on the left, so went with aircraft cable and tensioner into an...
Just picked up a used X2 that will be here in a few days. I'm going to be putting something dedicated together (probably a new room off the basement) in the spring but wanted to get something setup to test it out and hit some balls over the winter.
I'm in the process of finishing...
My GC2 is all over the place reading wise and I was hoping someone here wouldn't mind emailing me the calibration tool.
Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
My GC2-T unit is acting crazy. For putts, chips, drives, FW and other lower launching shots it is right on track. The higher the launch angle the wackier the lines get. For instance a wedge that I obviously hit straight shows being hit 20 yards left.
Any ideas what the heck is going on?
This is what I did find out... -Perfect Parallel is coming out with their "own" hardware!
I also heard that they will launch simulator version of Perfect Golf first. Then PC game, MAC game, PS, etc...
There is so much information in this forum regarding simulators, sensors, screens and projectors I thought it was about time to start a thread on the computers needed to run everything. Everybody knows that a fast processor, lots of memory and a fast graphics card are important to a good user...
Well, I'm making progress...
garage space cleared X
launch monitor, projector and laptop acquired X
garage heater (waiting on 220v circuit install)

enclosure and impact screen :confused
I have some things in the works on the enclosure, and looks like I am going with a...
I have recently setup a basement range with a CCE mat along with the vector pro. I am currently hitting into a net and displaying the path through a 32 LCD TV. I only have 7.5 foot ceiling space and won't be able to swing my driver or woods hence I have no intentions of setting up a full blown sim....
Finally decided on the ProTee Base Pack 2, includes putting, both cameras ,ProTee2.o and TgC. question now is where to buy?? Swingsense? Golfsimguys? Par2Pro??Spectrum Golf
Could use some help.....I am in Michigan
Hey guys wondering if anyone has any experience with a setup like this. I have my desktop computer with dual monitor. Its an EVGA GTX 960 with 4 outputs (3x DV and 1 HDMI). I have both my monitors connected via the DV and the projector using the HDMI.
Im having issues displaying to the...
Any suggestions on how to remove wrinkles. I have a few that are bugging me and are not in the hitting area. Remember reading something a while ago but can find that post.
I've owned a Vector Pro for a short while and rarely used it. When I first got it I went through and hit most of my clubs and it worked fine.
Recently I noticed that it didn't seem to focus as sharply when doing the calibration. I seem to recall that the focus was pretty sharp and that I could...
Everything you need to play indoor golf or provide excellent golf instruction and training. Just like the Pros use.
FlightScope X2 is the world’s first completely wireless, battery-operated, 3D Doppler tracking radar for golf. The X2 is known for its unmatched accuracy, affordability, and...
Slowly making my way toward my garage build. My screen is going to likely be 10' wide by 9' tall. Will be going with a Skytrak or GC2. I could use some help on a projector. I have read through tons of posts, and some say go XGA and others 1080 and just move the projector back to fit the...
Can anyone with a vector pro help me out. I bought a unit without a power supply and need to know what amp I need? I see its 12-16v and Im guessing its at least 2amps by the looks of some in the photos.
I want to have at least 1 camera recording my swing when I use my gc2 set-up. Was at a golftec today and was amazed by what they had for this. Basically it is always recording and a microphone picks up the ball strike and it automatically pulls up that swing. The best part was big plastic buttons...
What length, quantity and strength of Bungee cords should I buy to attach a 12'x9' screen?
I attached metal angle to the wall and ceiling. There is 5"of space between the straps/eyelets and the metal angle. I would like to buy these on Ebay. Thanks for your help!!!
