The anticipation has been killing many indoor golfers for more than a year, but the wait is nearly over - the Uneekor EYE MINI is hitting the market in April 2023, according to Uneekor’s website.
The EYE MINI, which will start at $4,500, is similar to the Foresight Sports GC3 and GCQuad, the Bushnell Launch Pro, and SkyTrak in that it’s a photometric launch monitor that is placed adjacent to the ball and hitting area. It’s in the middle of the pack in terms of price; it’s more expensive than the SkyTrak and BLP, but more affordable than the GC3 or GCQuad.
One of the best aspects of photometric launch monitors is their portability: use it at home or take it to the driving range with you. Previously, Uneekor only offered higher-end, overhead mounted units that were neither portable nor meant to be used outside, so this is an impressive step.
The Uneekor EYE MINI is said to have the power of the EYE XO in a compact, portable package. We’re excited to take it out for a field test and check the EYE MINI’s accuracy, like we did with the EYE XO field test.
UNEEKOR EYE MINI DATA PARAMETERS
The powerful Uneekor EYE MINI will record a plethora of ball and club data:
Club attack angle
In comparison, the less expensive SkyTrak captures ball speed, club speed, launch angle, total distance, carry distance, roll distance, angle of descent, back spin, side spin and side angle.
The higher priced GC3 has the ability to measure (depending on subscription level) club speed, smash factor, club path, angle of attack, ball speed, launch angle, carry distance, total distance, spin rate, spin axis, side spin and spin angle.
UNEEKOR EYE MINI SOFTWARE
The EYE MINI will come with the Uneekor View software on PC or iOS, which will be convenient when you’re at the driving range and need a mobile device. Uneekor View is the standard software that comes with the EYE XO as well. Uneekor View Software lets you see the club and ball data of your shots on a driving range and watch replays of your swing.
Similar to the EYE XO, EYE XO2 and QED, owners of the EYE MINI will have the ability to upgrade their base software to Refine or Refine+. Refine comes with 5 virtual 18-hole courses, while Refine+ adds 15 more for a total of 20.
The EYE MINI also will work seamlessly with Uneekor’s accessories, such as the Swing Optix Cameras, and will use the Ball and Club Optix Technology to provide accurate data. In order to gather club data, users will have to place included stickers on their clubs.
