- Arccos has released Gen3+ sensors.
- A smaller and lighter putter sensor is included.
- Retail price is $199.99 including a year of Arccos tracking.
The headline is that Arccos Gen3+ sensors have been announced. As you’ll see, the new Gen3+ sensors offer a couple of compelling enhancements but the more exciting piece of the story may be the app updates that correspond with the new sensor launch.
Arccos Gen3+ Sensors
The updates to the Arccos Gen3+ sensor hardware are straightforward. The primary sensors are the same size as the Gen3 version but Arccos says battery life has been improved. I like that.
A more appreciable difference is found with the P3 putter sensor which is 40-percent smaller and 20-percent lighter than the previous version.
If you’ve used Arccos at all, you’re probably aware that the standard sensors fit relatively unobtrusively on most grips. I play Golf Pride MCC Plus 4 midsize grips. With the larger grip and the flat butt cap, I’ve never had any issue. I believe the same is true for most other grips, including standard size.
The putter sensor, however … With every putter grip I’ve used, the putter sensor has hung over the edge a bit. It’s particularly noticeable (for me, anyway) with pistol-style grips. Would I consider that a fundamental flaw or a deal-breaker? Nah.
Annoying? As my Canadian friends might say, “Ya, you betcha.”
A significantly slimmed-down P3 should mean no more annoyances.
I really like that.
Unfortunately, the Arccos Gen3+ P3 putter sensor isn’t compatible with Super Stroke counter-balanced grips. If your grip has a screw top, you’ll still need the accessory adapter.
As an aside, in an attempt to be more eco-friendly, Arccos has slimmed down Gen3+ sensor packaging.
Improved Shot Tracking
While Arccos Gen3+ sensors make for a solid upgrade, the bigger story is the improved shot tracking that accompanies their launch.
According to Arccos, improvements to the latest app drop the missed shot rate to less than five percent while capturing 98 percent of all tee shots. We won’t know until we’ve had a chance to test the software upgrade on course but, if it works as advertised, it should be a huge improvement.
More importantly, it would address one of the biggest complaints about the system and, I’d wager, one of the biggest reasons why golfers abandon the Arccos Caddie platform.
Better news still: If you have Gen2 or Gen3 sensors, you don’t need to upgrade. The tracking improvements will work with the sensors you already have.
Arccos Gen3+ Pricing
A pack of 14 Arccos Gen3+ sensors costs $199.99 Your first year of shot tracking is included with your purchase. After that, Arccos will run you $12.99 a month.
If your bag is all set and you want to try Arccos, purchasing a sensor bundle is your best bet. If you plan on buying a new club (or clubs), COBRA, PING and TaylorMade all offer Arccos sensors with a club purchase. In most cases, a single club purchase will qualify you for a full sensor pack. Arccos Caddie trials are typically limited to 45 days but it’s a great way to see if Arccos is right for you without dropping $200.
Arccos Gen3+ Sensors are available now. For more information, visit Arccosgolf.com.

Just got fitted for a new driver. I had the Ping G410 and fully expected to walk away with a new Ping G425. This was not the case as I needed less backspin to
Lower my flight and improve distance. I ended up with Mizuno STG 220, 9* with 65g Mortore X shaft.
So my favorite driver is the Mizuno STG 220

I have. a Ping G410 (SFT), that I was fitted forsome 24 months ago. The feel and sound of the face hitting the ball is unique,. Reminds me of smacking a baseball out of the middle of a wooden bat. Best of all the technology keeps my drives in play. giving me confidence to score on each hole..
I recently 9 months ago I upgraded my Irons to Ping G425’s and received a full set of Arccos Sensors.
As advertised they changed my gam, dropping 6 shots in 7 months. The tracking and playing statistics immerse you in your game and where you have played well and where you need to improve. Best investment I have made to improve my enjoyment of Golf.

Purchased a Ping g410 SFT 2 seasons ago. Love the feel, and never had an adjustable hosel club before. With my slower swing speed(80 mph), it gives me good distance, and in the fairway a lot more than in the past. I have the 10.5*, set at 10*. Replaced the stock shaft(Alta CB 55 reg. flex, 44.5), with a Graffaloy ProLaunch 65, in reg flex, cut to 43.5″. I love the feel of a well struck ball, as you really don’t feel the point of impact. This WILL be my driver for some time to come…

Had been using the Shotscope V2 and V3 tracking, but got tired of having to delete my wife’s shots (she has V3 also) from my round when I was close enough for my watch to pick up her shot (not that close). We both tried the Arccos, I kept it and she went back to the Shotscope. Can’t have a phone in the pocket so I got the link. Arccos is easy to edit on the phone Shotscope not so much. I still want to win the Arccos kit!

I’m a fan of Arccos. I’m into my second year using it and the data that I’ve received from using this product has helped improve my game by leaps and bounds. It’s not perfect, you do have to make adjustments and sometimes add or subtract shots if you pull 2 clubs and drop one or if it misses a shot. But to me, those are minor inconveniences in comparison to the benefit of the information. Also, my favorite drive is currently the Stealth Plus. It’s not drastically better than my Sim 2, but I love the look.

Tried them a couple times in the past, and the system missed too many shots to make them useful. One had to spend a lot of time in the computer revising the shots of the round.

Brad W11 months ago
A bit late to the thread, but here are experiences. I used Arccos for 100 rounds; sold my stuff mostly because what I was learning I knew…. the new learning simply reinforced key themes for ams… primarily, grab one more club for most shots. Most of the comments here are pretty negative, my experience was mostly positive. Let’s start at the green and work back. Non military GPS systems are not as accurate — picking up putt distances is a challenge for any of them.; same with shots around the green. Arccos struggles in wind and clouds due to how it registers a shot so yes you have to edit some — but it is no worse than the time you might have spent with pencil and scorecard. If you miss a fairway by 2 feet, again, GPS is going to be challenged with that small of a miss. So, you edit for fairways hit or missed. Did Arccos miss or add a few shots, yes, occasionally, but not nearly as many as some are describing in my experience. I moved to Shot Scope V3, because I simply wanted yardages and you edit with SS too…. same reasons, GPS is only so accurate. Arccos seems better on putts, especially now that they allow the 2nd putt feature. Neither of these are for everyone, and if you want bulletproof technology that always works, don’t buy technology… I’m old enough to remember the Windows Blue Screen of Death. Last thought, if you go Arrcoss, get the screw in sensors… they don’t bother you a bit and you can trade out clubs and sets easily…. and as others have noted, Arcos is fantastic at customer service.
Blake Butcher11 months ago
I was an early user of Game Golf but became frustrated with the whole experience. I am interested to know if Arccos solves the problems and will actually help (easily) provide the data to help me improve my game. Or, maybe, based on some of the comments I should try GolfPad. $199 is a big commitment when you’ve already been burned by a similar system (Gane Golf).

Definitely interested in finding a good tracking set up. I believe one will help me become more consistent with my play. Also want to get a new Ping g425 driver so knowing my basic numbers would be great.

My favorite driver is TITLEIST TSI4. I would love to see how responsive and accurate the ARCOSS sensors would be on it.

Like the idea and have used GameGolf previously, however subscription feels a little steep these days. Love stats and golf but really can’t justify paying for something like this at this time.

After a year of missed or inaccurate shots, many replacement sensors, two replacement LINK devices (one lost due to a broken, the other lost due to “pilot error”) and several instances of sensors falling off while pulling clubs out of bag (again probably “pilot error”) the system although providing needed info, proved too inconvenient to use. (Whew, long run-on sentence, I know), I am reluctantly cancelling my subscription..

Seen many posts about Arccos vs. GolfPad. I have used GP for 4 years now and used Arccos simultaneously when I got 12 months free with sensors as a promo. There is no compairson. The data Arccos provides is WAY better and more advanced, but literally everything else about it is worse. Tracking, sensors, reliability, quickness, ease of use, everything is worse about Arccos. Their data platform is excellent but until they solve the “getting the actual data” part, it’s a no from me dog.

I can relate to this. No matter what kind, embedded sensors in the grips or the bulky and ugly screw in sensors, the system consistently just misses shots. Doesn’t matter if I’m paired to my phone on my left front pocket or to the caddie Link. Unfortunate because their data and analytics pool is pretty awesome but at this point I’ll just try Decade. I already have to remember most of my shots anyway.

I got the Arccos System ad a gift right before it switched to be subscription only and luckily enough only one sensor died. But when more batteries will die I will put Arccos out of service and switch to SS v3.
To be clear I like Arccos a lot and for my usecase it is the better system but I am not willing to pay 13$ Per month especially when I am only able to play 6 month because of the climate I live in. I really like the way Arccos presents the data, but even SS is far from being this good, it is good enough. Are they flawless of course not but no system is.

I used arccos for the first time, splendid results. I wanted to play with it, use the data and most importantly I wanted a no-nonsense approach to pulling a club, firing a shot and having the data captured. Including putting.
Those of you that are swiping your iphones, & entering information on your phone during the round…Your playing partners and friends may not say anything, but they want your to stop.
My playing partners had no clue I was capturing my data, I did not have a particular good round, I shot 82, my arccos missed one 6 inch tap in

Good for you. In my experience the biggest whiners about slow play are often slow players themselves they just only notice the issue when other people do it. Other than a casual round at a private club that’s empty with a twosome it really doesn’t take long to use arccos manually. and won’t slow down the pace of play to manually enter shots. All you have to do is turn on the phone and tap the app right before you get to the ball then hit add shot and that can all be down before you get to the ball and so all you have to do is move the club dot over the phone location once you stop. I get my yardage and hit the shot. When I’m driving away or waiting for others to hit their shots I say what club it was. Not a big deal. Seems like you are making a big deal about something that takes 5 seconds a shot and that’s being generous. I’ve been using arccos manually since 2017 in casual rounds and tournaments and I bet I spend less time using arccos than you waste with your putting routine unless you actually just walk up and hit the ball. Either way if you are this annoyed by manual use of arccos I guarantee you have personality problems that annoy people you play with but are to nice to say so.

I’m in the middle of my 45-day trial right now. I’m using the Arccos caddie device as well. Bottom line: not loving it. I spend a LOT of time post-round removing phantom shots, adding missed shots, and correcting putting. But the thing I dislike the most is how inaccurate the system is around the greens. On many, many occasions, the app will record my second shot ending up nowhere near where it actually did. So I have to adjust where the shot landed manually, which affects accuracy. More than likely I will not be signing up for a $13 a month subscription.
Jeff11 months ago
I’m sorry, but no. Not for the $119.88 annual subscription cost.
Using GolfPad GPS and paying $19.99 and getting the same data.
Oh, and they have the tap to record tags as well.
Saving that $100 means 3-4 extra rounds of golf.
Mat11 months ago
This is dead tech. Someone is going to finally figure this out. Get a phone/watch app. Run the app on the watch, and it sets to listen. When it detects a strike, it waits 9 seconds and makes a tiny ding. Tap the watch and it says “what club?” and you SAY what it was.
All this plastic nonsense is there to capture two points of data; location and club choice. It’s not necessary. Even your phone can make a guess where you were if you run an app. In the meantime, they milk people with a plastic gizmo, and because you “get something”, you pay ridiculous amounts for eventual e-waste. They replace them free because the margins are excellent.
Count me out. It isn’t that I don’t want the data, but I’m not willing to carry trinkets to capture it. Arccos could do it now, but they are too afraid they’d put themselves out of business. All the good companies do it.

I purchased Arccos a year ago. Used it all last season. However after about 10-15 rounds I started to noticed dropped shots. Then some rounds only recorded half my shots. Contacted Arccos several times with no response back other than to clean my sensors. Didn’t think that was to helpful, but cleaned them anyway. Well still had dropped shots. So if the software update is suppose to fix this then I guess we shall see. Found another shot tracking service that only has a yearly service fee, not monthly,. I used it the last few rounds of last season and a few this season so far and it seems to work pretty well so far. It’s V1 game. No sensors to put on your clubs as it senses your swing through your and/or your smart watch.
Luis11 months ago
I used Arccos for the year included with Cobra iron a few years ago. As other have mention it missed many shots so I chose not to go for the paying option. After that I resorted to using the Golf Pad app with my samsung watch just two taps before each shot and that it. An annual fee, very reasonable BTW, and I get all my stats, including strokes gained.
Dave11 months ago
I’ve been using Golfpad for 4 years and been quite happy with the information it provides and the on course experience. Your post was relevant to me as I’ve been considering the Cobra Firged Tec or Tour irons which come bundled with Arcoss sensors. Knowing about some of it’s issues, and the cost, has me leaning towards sticking with Golfpad. They have lower annual fee, less expensive sensors, and in my experience adequately accurate data. Thanks for your post.
Mike Stevens11 months ago
My big problem with Arccos is the sensor life. I had failures after 6 months. I purchased replacements and one of those failed after only on month. I learned a lot by using the system, but if the sensors fail so quickly I am thinking I won’t renew when my subscription is up. The sensor ought to last at least as long as the subscription period.
Glynn11 months ago
I was selected as a tester of Arccos for MGS and have been very disappointed with the quality and reliability of the product. So far in 8 months I have had 8 sensors fail. Accros. did the right thing and sent me 12 replacements so I do have 4 spares which is good. However as far as shot detection goes it is still not great. My average is 83-85%. 8-10% is non detection of putts, the rest are random non detection of shots.. For the price I would not recommend Arccos and their is know way I will be forking out the $99 ($140AUD) a year subscription when the current one expires.

I have a set of Arccos sensors that I would sell for a good deal.
Rolly Junio11 months ago
I have not utilized any shot tracking devices. The monthly subscription is not appealing at all.
After reading peoples comments, I may have to give Shot Scope a try.
MyGolfSpy: I would have to look but have you conducted a shot tracking app/device comparison yet?

Many grips DO NOT HAVE a flat grip cap…
and neither ARCCOS nor SS V-3 work very well on grips with a rounded cap!😡

I had been playing the SS-V3 for a season when I got a “deal” offer to the Arccos so I decided to try it out. I was planning to write a comparison follow on to one of the threads here on MGS. Then the cold weather set in and I wanted to get a couple of more regular season rounds in for apples to apples comparison; still waiting on that weather. In my initial observations, the accuracy is similar between the two. The software interface in the SS-V3 (edibility and controls) is far superior; adding penalties, adjusting accuracy from a bunker or hazard to the rough or fairway, and especially on the green. I was interested in trying the Arccos because of the …inaccuracies” with the V3 on various shots, and especially on the green. IMO users need to be able to zoom in more on the green ; it is unbelievably hard to move a putt that was <1ft to closer than 2-3ft, especially when adding an unrecorded putt/shot. I was going Arccos would be better, it is even less user friendly. Those are just my observations. And the monthly fee just makes it even less palatable. I was steered away from Arccos to start with because I didn't wan too carry my phone in my pocket and all the other extra steps, so the Link option made me want to try it. If I can give a positive I'd say that it is the Link connection. I actually like the link vs. a watch in some ways. I'd like to see some sort of hybrid of that option. And yes, Arccos seems to miss more shots than the V3. Again, I'd like to get a few more rounds before I complete my "review" but then again I don't want to pay a monthly subscription just to end up selling it.

I use another shot tracking system which doesn’t require a monthly subscription only an annual. With my shot tracking system has imp, I have lowered my score by at least 8 strokes., however $13 a month for me is unreasonable.
Scott S11 months ago
Concur. That and the accuracy and software program interface are inferior to another, similar product. I need to post the Arccos setup for sale.
Mark11 months ago
$13 / month is unreasonable to drop 8 strokes? People will spend $500+ every year for a driver just to hope they can get 10 more yards. Compared to that, Arccos is a pretty great deal

Why are you so fearful to take a look at our AcuAim putter? The putter is approved by both the USGA and R&A. It is a game changer.
Mike Ortenblad11 months ago
I had the arrco system for thirty days. Took them out. Didn’t work well enough to justify using. Missed 10-12 shots a round. They are pushing hard but I think it’s just a gimmic. To unreliable to track game and very distracting to use
Randall Siedschlag11 months ago
I liked Arccos when i had it. I miss the shot tracking but again the subscription price doesn’t seem worth it when my season is 8 months. Is the SG that much better than ShotScope? I may go back to Arccos at some point, especially if the metics are better.
Andrew the Great!11 months ago
Thanks to you guys, last year I bought the ShotScope V3 and I am completely satisfied with it. AFAIK, it does the same kind of thing as these Arccos devices. The upside to the V3 (so far, anyway) is that it provides the data (a wealth of data, including strokes-gained) without requiring a subscription.
Anyway, just one man’s perspective.
DKey11 months ago
A couple more generations and they will be as small as Shot Scope’s RFID trackers. 🙂 ARCOSS misses shots? Now better than 95%? I don’t believe in 2+ years of use that Shot Scope has missed a shot. This is technology – I live in Silicon Valley – and it doesn’t work every time? Check out Shot Scope as a comp.
Peter11 months ago
So I tried Arccos a year or so ago and ultimately stopped using it after my 45 day trial ended. The main reason was that the tracking itself wasn’t reliable. Either it missed shots I took or counted shots I didn’t take. Biggest thing was the putter tracking.
If they could bring the price down on their monthly or yearly subscription then I’d consider giving it a go again. Most phone tracking apps are significantly cheaper than this. I’m aware that Arccos has a little more to give but I don’t think the extra cost is justified. Just my 2 cents.

I dropped the Arccos system a month ago after using it a year (I live in Scottsdale so we play all year). I dropped because of the multiple missed shots and “phantom” shots the system would miss-record. Note that I bought the belt clip sensor. (Arccos still has not included a lanyard to keep from loosing the sensor from your belt.)
In addition, they have been promising to finalize their beta software for over a year. I have also used ShotScope and Garmin sensors. None of them are that good.
The best system I have used so far at recording shot location data is my Garmin S-60 watch. There is no auto recording of club use but it is better than trying to “untangle” the recorded “spaghetti” after a round with Arccos or ShotScope.
Let’s face it, all you really learn from the data is that you need to hit your tee shot in the fairway, hit the green in regulation close to the pin and make your putts.
One thing I can say about Arccos is that they have a very good customer support team. They are quick to replay and do offer good help when you need it.
