Bushnell Enters The Personal Launch Monitor Space
Should all other Personal Launch Monitors be scared of the Bushnell Launch Pro powered by Foresight?
We’ve got limited information about this story but what we do know is that Bushnell and Foresight joining forces-out already has golfers stimulated. But why are two quite different corporations coming together? Read on to find out!
After testing Bushnell and Foresight products for many years, I can say with complete certainty, both companies are top of the food chain in their selected industries.
Bushnell are known best for their golf rangefinders. In testing, Bushnell’s rangefinders have the clearest optics, top notch accuracy, and many aspects to help you shoot lower ratings. There’s a reason why most of the PGA professional were using them at the PGA Championship at Ocean course in South Carolina.
Foresight is one of the leaders in the launch monitor space. Many PGA professionals use the Foresight GC Quad while practising on the assortment or on such courses at an occurrence. So why would Foresight want to compete against themselves in the Launch monitor space? Simple…it’s a different niche of the market. The Personal Launch Monitor space is grabbing a lot of attention by the everyday golfer.
So Why Are Bushnell and Foresight Joining Forces?
Bushnell Golf Enters Launch Monitor Market with the introduction of the Launch Pro. Bushnell have partnered with Foresight Sports to deliver a “Pro-Level” Launch Monitor to the Everyday Golfer.
“Our two teams are the right combination to win in the growing launch monitor market. Foresight Sports’ resulting technology combined with the strength of the Bushnell Golf brand will facilitate growth in brand-new and existing golf markets, ” says Foresight Sports Co-Founder, Jon Watters. “It’s an unbelievably exciting time to be a part of this athletic. Not only to be witnessing the evolution of our play toward a broader, more improved consumer experience through technology, but to be actively helping golfers improve while growing video games and reaching new consumers. We are aroused for the future and this partnership with Bushnell Golf.”
When looking at both companies, Bushnell is really good distributing their products across the world in large-scale container storages. EG they already have their products in these storages. Foresight is very good at render accurate consistent data but don’t have a lot of their products in multiple stores. See where i’m going with this? It simply makes appreciation when you think about it. Foresight have the technology of their GC2 merely sitting around because the GC Quad has taken over. So why not use the GC2 data and repurpose it in the Launch Pro.
This is obviously my own ruling and could wholly be wrong but this theory simply establishes appreciation in my head.
Just food for thought.
A First Look at The Launch Pro
That’s literally all we’ve got, a search. A illustration. But a word-painting can give us enough hints to make a few assumptions.
” The Bushnell launch Pro Launch Pro will offer our core consumer access to the best technology in ball striking measurement and analysis, which will support our consumers in their seek of progress, ” said Vishak Sankaran, President of Bushnell.
Okay but we want to know what specific data points will the Launch Pro offer. According to bushnellgolf.com, the Launch Pro will include club head speed, projectile accelerated, launching slant, carry interval, spin rate and roll out. However, the picture of the Launch Pro includes back spin and launching guidance. Whether this was by collision or only another teasing by Bushnell/ Foresight is defined. The Launch Pro will offer off-course, lifestyle stimulated golf segment. Launch Pro customers will have access to multiple course simulations to enhance their in-home or off-course playing experience according to Vishak Sankaran, President of Bushnell. I don’t know about you guys but that seems right up my alley.
A lot of golfers have been asking the question about will it be a camera or doppler radar based launch observe? Come on guys! Do you really believe Foresight, a top of the industry camera based example actually start, from scratch, a doppler launching observe? I will bet my house on the Launch Pro has become a camera based Personal Launch Monitor and them utilizing the same technology within their GC Quad.
With all of this technology that Bushnell/ Foresight are offering, how much will it cost? Well if you look at their brand-new competitors with similar data offerings, you’re looking around 2k for the human rights unit. The Launch Pro might come in around that amount but for having two top excellence companies taken together, the price might come in higher. Who knows!
How can Bushnell/ Foresight differentiate themselves from every other PLM on the market? I think it’s simple. You have two leaders in the industry coming together so you get doubled the amount of knowledge and technology into one division. Seems great right? Plus the tech that Foresight have is incredibly consistent which cant be said for some of the Personal Launch Monitors on the market.
When Can You Get Your Hands On This?
According to Bushnell’s website, they will be available in the Fall of 2021. Not too long to wait.
The biggest thing that needs to be addressed is, can I trust the numbers the the Launch Pro renders. Don’t worry, we will be testing this unit out as soon as we get one in to experiment. Then we will spill all the beans to provide you with more information to make a better, more informed decision.
Let me know in the comments part if you agree with my belief on why Bushnell and Foresight joined personnels. If not, whats your opinion?
