Foresight Sports GCQuad: Features, price, release date

Foresight Sports has stepped up its launch monitor product offerings with the new GCQuad launch monitor. Set to be unveiled at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, the GCQuad, as the name implies, is the industry's first quadroscopic (four-camera) launch monitor.

The GCQuad comes in a portable, ergonomic package for easy transport and use on the range, indoors and on the course. The unit has an enlarged on-board display which indicates top-level data for each shot captured, while the unit captures a full spectrum of data about the ball and clubface position at impact. A new algorithm uses the on-board barometric pressure reader to better model ball flight downrange.

The additional pair of cameras and improved technology allows the GCQuad to scan a space six times the size that the GC2 can scan. That means picking up more shots, which means a more efficient and accurate session. A solid-stated NIR LED light reduces the need for flash replacement.

Users can connect the unit to software via WiFi or Ethernet cable, and both methods have been improved. The battery not only has better life, but it can be swapped out with other compatible batteries for long sessions.

The Foresight Sports GCQuad will retail in the range of $12,000 -- a reasonable price, given the technology and competition in the marketplace -- with software running in the area of $3,000.
