If you've noticed variations in the calculated distance or faced challenges with ball direction after a swing, here are some calibration tips and tricks to optimize your experience with the SLX MicroSim and E6 Connect.
Distance Discrepancy: My Driver distance is about 250 yards, but SLX MicroSim/TittleX calculates it at 230 yards.
The SLX MicroSim calculates based on instant wrist movement at the moment of impact. Due to differences in golfer's wrist release, variations may occur. To address this, use the club-specific distance adjustment function in E6 Connect:
- Navigate to "Blue settings gear icon in the lower right side of the home screen -> Simulator -> Tracking System > SwingLogic - SLX OR TittleX [for lefties] -> Configure."
- Adjust the distance for each swing type from -10% to +10%.
Tips & Tricks:
- Downswing smoother and release quicker for distance control.
- Pay attention to the "Click" sound; a good swing produces it at or after passing the ball's location.
Ball Direction: After the swing, the direction of the ball continues to hook or slice.
Ball direction may differ based on grip and setup. Adjust the sensor's horizontal position during setup to manipulate results:
- Hook (left): Swing with the sensor set horizontally or slightly tilted to the left.
- Slice (right): Adjust the sensor horizontally or slightly to the right and swing.
- Slightly adjust the horizontal position for hook/draw, slice/fade pitches.
- Modify Difficulty settings to control sidespin.
Putting Challenges: The sensor doesn’t recognize my swing when putting, and it's too difficult to putt a short putt.
The SLX MicroSim sensor analyzes the swing in steps. To improve recognition for short putts:
- Increase backswing speed or change Sensitivity setting to “High” or “Very High” in the setup menu.
- Change ball shape settings in E6 Connect for comfortable putting.
Chipping Distances: The sensor doesn’t recognize my swing when chipping short distances.
For chipping, adjust the backswing and wrist movement:
- Short chip: Shorter backswing and emphasize wrist "flick/flip" at impact.
- Long chip: Maintain a longer backswing with the wrist "flick/flip" for impact/movement detection.
