How does the Optishot compare to the P3ProSwing?

Both the Optishot and the P3ProSwing simulators make use of upward pointing infrared leds, and an associated array of sensors which detect the infrared light reflected downwards from the bottom of the golf club as it passes through the hitting zone. Although the P3ProSwing contains more sensors than the Optishot, we have not noticed any difference in accuracy between the shot results on either unit. Both produce very accurate ball flight simulations.
The P3ProSwing comes with reflective tape that can be applied on the bottom of your driver and fairway woods ->if needed<-. The Optishot does not come with tape. We have found through experimentation that simple painters tape or electrical tape, placed across the bottom of the club about 1/2" from the leading edge accomplishes exactly the same thing. Please note that the need for tape on the bottom of your driver or fairway woods depends entirely on the shape of the club and the reflectivity it offers on the bottom leading edge. Many customers find that they do not need to tape their clubs at all.
The Optishot golf courses look and feel a bit more realistic than the ones provided with the P3ProSwing in our opinion. The Optishot provides simulations of a driving range plus at least 12 real world golf courses. Additional "Premium" golf courses are available for a small fee. The P3ProSwing provides a driving range module plus 92 generic golf courses.
Both units come with a replaceable artifical turf hitting surface. The P3ProSwing unit is considerably heavier than the Optishot due to it's heavy duty metal case. The P3ProSwing requires an external power supply as well as a USB cable to the computer. The Optishot requires only a USB cable to the computer.
Both units offer an excellent value!
