The Arccos Holiday Golf Gift Guide
Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors and Smart Grips, Decoded
As an Arccos user, you get why Arccos Caddie was named Golf Digest’s Editor’s Choice for “Best Swing and Game Analyzer” four years and running.
You’re not at all surprised GOLF Magazine just named Arccos Caddie Smart Grips its “Best Gift for Techies.”
And then there’s the success you and your golf buddies realize through Arccos Caddie’s game-changing performance data and artificial intelligence platform, golf’s next major paradigm shift according to WIRED.
“I dropped five strokes in three months!” – Tim M.
“I’ll never play another round without it!” – Jared L.
There are more than 250,000 members of the Arccos family. In the spirit of the holiday season, let’s come together to generously give the gift of lower scores to our fellow golfers. You know, spread the love and get them on the Arccos train.
And for all the non-golfers shopping for golfers, we’re here to help.
Where to Begin
Let’s assume game improvement is the objective. Not just game improvement, but rapid game improvement.
Both Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors and Smart Grips – the brand’s two flagship offerings – will accomplish this goal.
In fact, golfers using Arccos improve 47 times faster than the average golfer who isn’t leveraging on-course performance data.
As you can see from the below chart, playing smarter and scoring better is a reality for all golfers, no matter his or her skill level. And it is an awesome way to start out the new year.
That stated, not all avid golfers are the same. Here, we’ll walk through considerations to simplify the Arccos holiday gift selection process.
Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors (£199.99, discounted from £249.99 for the Holiday) are the founding element of the Arccos ecosystem.
They’re a great option for golfers who change club sets frequently, just had their clubs regripped or for the gift-giver who doesn’t know what type of grips his or her golfer prefers.
Business pros who tee it up with clients while traveling also find Smart Sensors convenient. They’re ultra-portable, work with any rental club set and the pairing process (linking to the Arccos Caddie app on a smartphone) only takes a few minutes.
The set comes with 14 Smart Sensors (one for each club) that screw into the ends of existing grips. The exception – and it’s a good one – is for players carrying the SuperStroke Putter.
Engineers at both companies collaborated to create a seamless attachment with a built-in Arccos sensor for the CounterCore and Traxion models. If your golfer already owns one of these two SuperStroke Putter Grips, the Accessory is a cool stocking stuffer.
According to a recent Arccos survey of 500 golfers, 46% regrip their clubs every two years while 35% regrip annually.
Chances are, your golfer is approaching a major regripping opportunity. If you know what type of grips he or she prefers, Arccos Caddie Smart Grips (£199.99 - £249.99) kill two birdies with one stone, as the sensors are embedded into the ends of the grips providing a seamlessly elegant solution.
When it comes to grips, Golf Pride is the leader among PGA Tour players, while Lamkin is also popular. Arccos offers both, including the Golf Pride MCC Plus4 and Lamkin Crossline 360 and UTx.
All these grips are offered in standard and midsize. Here’s an easy way to figure out which you need: if your golfer’s glove is an extra-large, opt for the midsize. If it is a large or smaller, go for the standard.
Smart Sensors and Smart Grips both connect to Arccos Caddie, the app-based platform that makes the magic happen. The sheer amount of info and data it contains, and the artificial intelligence it incorporates, are what avid golfers truly appreciate.
For starters, Arccos Caddie houses detailed GPS-based maps of more than 40,000 courses. It checks the box of providing pinpoint accurate distances for every shot on just about every hole in the world.
Like an expert statistician, it also records every shot made with every club in the bag. The sensors detect impact and transmit data to smartphones (and Apple Watch).
But where Arccos Caddie really separates itself is by being just that – a virtual caddie. It makes club selection suggestions by leveraging on-course performance data from previous shot distances and directions.
Smart Sensors come with a lifetime subscription to Arccos Caddie included, and Smart Grips come with a one-year Arccos Caddie subscription, a $99.99 value.
