If you watch golf on the PGA Tour with any regularity, you’re surely familiar with technology like Shot Link, Track Man, and Top Tracer. 

In fact, every single player has a launch monitor of some sort next to them when they’re warming up. Why? Because they want to know all the numbers: spin rate, launch angle, carry distance, and many more.

You see, golf has entered the age of data. It’s how players of all levels get better.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could see some of this important information yourself? Of course. But not everyone has $30,000 to spend on a Track Man. 

That’s where Arccos comes in. I recently took the Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors and Caddie Link out for a round. It’s pretty darn cool stuff.

Let’s have a closer look.

Key Features

Automatic, hands-free shot tracking.

Smart Distance Club Averages let you know exactly how far you hit each club.

Rangefinder automatically adjusts for wind, slope, temperature, humidity, and altitude for precise yardages on every shot.

Design and Technology

The third generation of the Arccos system is all about technology. The system utilizes 14 sensors that sit on the end of your grip. One for each club. These sensors track everything you could ever want to know about your shots. From distance, to dispersion, to launch angle, and spin rate, these sensors give you plenty of useful feedback.


The data they collect is synced with an app on your phone. That means real-time feedback on every shot you hit over the course of the round.

Sensors are operated on batteries that are guaranteed for two years and can last up to five. The batteries also go into power save mode when you’re in between shots.


When you purchase a one-year subscription, the app and all upgrades are included.


The app gives you real time yardage out on the course.


Once you’ve played five rounds, the app will have enough information stored to provide optimal strategy for your game.


When you’re done with your round, you can go back and analyze your rounds at a future date. After a while, you’ll have a crystal-clear picture of your strengths and weaknesses. This is called Strokes Gained Analytics.


PROS

  • System is easy to use and understand.
  • One-time subscription fee provides everything you need, including software updates.
  • 30-day money back guarantee is better than most for similar products.

CONS

  • Price point is higher than other options on the market.
  • Software is only compatible with iOS and Android smartphones.
  • Regular software updates need to be installed and shouldn’t be overlooked.

Our Experience

As much as I love the latest and greatest when it comes to golf equipment, I’ve never fancied myself a geek when it comes to numbers and all that data that’s available.

Having used the Arccos Smart Caddie Sensors and Caddie Link App, I now see the value. While I thought I had a good idea how far I hit each of my clubs, where most of my misses were, and that my wedge play was a lot better than it actually is, the information I was granted by this system is undeniable.

Now, more than ever, I have a true understanding of my game, both my strengths and my glaring weaknesses. It’s up to me to get out and practice…
