GCQuad launch monitor
The Foresight Sports GCQuad’s advanced technology and lightning-fast processor power the most precise, versatile launch monitor available today.
The Tour-Trusted launch monitor
It’s true – form does follow function. Beyond being the most advanced launch monitor ever created, the GCQuad is also the most beautifully ergonomic. Created from the ground up with the help of an award-winning industrial design team, every curve, colour, material, and feature was chosen with performance in mind.
Unmatched ball and club data
The GCQuad uses a combination of infrared object tracking and high-speed, high-resolution camera-based technology to precisely measure every aspect of club head and ball launch performance.
• Ball speed
• Launch angle
• Side angle
• Side spin
• Carry distance
• Club head speed
• Angle of attack
• Club path
• Face angle

True-to-life golf simulation
The world’s most advanced launch monitor is ideal for the world’s best virtual golf experience.
Power your simulator with the same launch monitor technology used on tour. The most true-to-life golf simulation experience for any-time, any-weather golf.
Indoors or outdoors, the GCQuad delivers the same level of insight whether you’re on the range or in the simulation studio.
Portable and convenient. No leveling, no calibration and no marked balls. Out of the golf bag and ready to go in less than a minute.
Professional grade analysis
Powered by the world’s most trusted launch monitor technology, FSX Pro delivers powerful data analysis and visualisation features, tailor-made for the professional club-fitter and golf instructor.
Intuitive, fully-illustrated depictions of ball flight and club head data ensure easy analysis of each and every shot. Click-to-zoom data tables, and multi-ball comparison give the fitter or instructor a new level of insight. And when the session is finished, player data can be emailed or uploaded to FSX Live.
Gameplay as real as it gets
FSX Play is the next evolution of true-to-life graphics in golf simulation. With a whole new graphics engine, you’ll experience the game like never before. Rich textures, 3D grass, enhanced lighting, updated UI and HUD, and ultra-smooth gameplay make you feel like you’re on the course.

The GCQuad uses four ultra-high-speed cameras to take up to 200 images of the golf ball within the first 30cm of ball flight. Taking the images from four different perspectives allows the GCQuad launch monitor to produce a 3D picture of the golf ball’s movement, while the high-resolution cameras allow the system to clearly see the dimple pattern of the golf ball. This is a vital component when trying to measure spin. The onboard computer will then compare each image to the next, and using a method called spherical correlation, it will measure how the dimple pattern is rotating throughout the image set.

By capturing thousands of images per second, building a virtual 3D model, and then analysing a multitude of data components, the GCQuad is able to create the most accurate and complete picture of your ball and club head performance – and deliver the results in real-time.

The GCQuad uses a combination of infrared object tracking and high-speed, high-resolution camera-based technology to precisely measure every aspect of club head and ball launch performance. With an an internal accelerometer – which eliminates the need for any setup or manual calibration, and an onboard barometer that adjusts data to the local environment – no matter where you are, your data is always accurate.
Camera and radar launch monitors essentially use opposite methods to provide data with a major difference being where the launch monitors are positioned. Radar-based systems are positioned behind the golfer and have no direct view of the club face whereas camera-based systems are positioned slightly in front (towards the target) of the golfer at address. Camera-based launch monitors will take multiple images of the golf ball and process launch information through a ball-flight model to show the flight that the launch conditions would have caused. Radar-based launch monitors use radar to track the flight of the golf ball and then calculate the launch conditions that would have caused that flight. To learn more about the differences click here
A launch monitor is the only way to accurately provide feedback about the flight of the golf ball and the delivery of the golf club. For coaching, fitting, professional tours and for home users of all abilities, launch monitors are proving to be a vital asset to fully understand each aspect of a golfer’s game.
The GC3 and GCQuad are both built on the same advanced photometric technology with the main difference being that the GCQuad features an extra camera to provide more club data points. The GCQuad also features a larger hitting area and a slightly longer battery life. For a full comparison visit here
