Missing Metrics: Exit Velocity, Launch Angle, & Distance.

The metrics of Exit Velocity, Launch, and Distance require the use of Ball Flight.  If the feature isn't turned on these metrics will not be available.   

  • Premium services are required to use the Ball Flight.  


Ball flight can help your game. The camera uses Blast IQ to detect the post-impact metrics. This is called Ball Flight. This premium service measures the post-impact results of your swings, allowing you to visualize ball flight. The app will walk you through the setup of using this service. See the powerpoint and video below for further detail:
