If you checked out the pricing on the TrueGolf System and thought that we were a bit nuts, then the Optishot may be more your speed. With the Optishot 2, you are going to get quite a bit of value. We don’t want to call this a cheap golf simulator because it is actually of excellent quality. However, we will say that this is certainly the lowest price simulator package you will find on the market.
The fact that Optishot 2 has been able to put together a system that allows you to play golf courses all over the world and improve your game for less than $1000 is quite impressive. You will notice that with this, Optishot may require you to use some of your own technology to complete the set, but it will be well worth it.
The basic OptiShot 2 is called the Golf in A Box simulator. You will get a hitting mat, a basic golf net (not a full swingbay), OptiShot software, the Infrared Optical Swing Pad, and 15 renowned Golf courses to play on. The launch monitor on this model is good, but it is certainly not quite like the option on the TureGolf Vista.
However, if you pair your OptiShot2 with a great computer and have all of the connections set up properly, you can get some great information about your launch angle, distance, spin, and more. This will feel like you brought the driving range home.
With the OptiShot 2 simulator premium package, the major difference is going to be that you have a full swingbay with a screen. This will certainly change the feel of the home simulator experience and make it feel more realistic. If you are going to be playing rounds of golf with your friends on your simulator, it is probably a good choice to go with the upgraded screen and swingbay.
Whichever OptiShot package you choose, you will be impressed with the ability to work on your game and continue to improve both your full swing and your short game. Think of all the money you would spend playing golf during the winter. If you have a simulator at home, you can work on your game, and it won’t cost you any more than it would during the regular golf season.
