Everything About Uneekor QED Launch Monitor

The Uneekor QED has earned quite a reputation as one of the best mid-range mounted launch monitors available in the market, but before you get dazzled by its hype and make up your mind to buy it, there are certain things you need to know. 

Let’s walk you through the nitty-gritty of this golf launch monitor in this conclusive guide.

With me! 

Uneekor QED: Overview

If you want to master your passion by training on an uninterrupted and trouble-free golf launch monitor that offers unmatched performance and unique features, the Uneekor QED is the right choice for you. 

With its dual high-speed camera-based systems that can operate at over 3000 fps to deliver precise data measurements and instantaneous response, this launch monitor sets the bar to the next level. 

You can also watch the slow motion of the club impacting the ball and ball spin to analyze and work on your weak areas of the game. 

This launch monitor uses an array of photometric sensors that record a bunch of club and ball metrics to introduce you to critical details of your golfing style. 

Furthermore, the experience becomes livelier with TGC 2019, GS Pro, and E6 Connect golf simulation software that open your access to your favorite golf courses from all over the world, putting and chipping areas, mini-games, practice modes, and online events.

Another cool thing about the Uneekor QED is its unique design that allows it to be mounted overhead, offering flexibility for both left- and right-handed golfers.

Setting Up Uneekor QED

Although setting up Uneekor QED is different from other golf launch monitors, it’s simple and easy. You can refer to the installation manual, but let me save you from reading it by breaking the installation process into a few short steps:

  1. Gather the required tools for the installation
  • Ladder
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Screws (M4 32 mm and M6 15 mm)
  • Bracket
  • Sensor bar
  1. Mount the bracket
  • The box includes a QED sensor and bracket attached together.
  • Remove the sensor from the bracket by slightly loosening the black M6 15 mm screws.
  • Use the ladder to climb the ceiling mounting position and place the bracket flat against the ceiling.
  • Make sure that the hinges are facing down toward the ground and the logo closest toward the hitting screen.
  • Make sure that the center point is aligned with the tee position on the mat.
  • With the bracket in position, grab nine silver M4 (32 mm) screws.
  • Screw all the screws in order.
  1. Install the sensor
  • The sensor bar has six pre-inserted black M6 (15 mm) screws. 
  • Make sure all six screws are about halfway screwed into the bar.
  • Slide the sensor bar with the six screws up and over through the bracket hinges. 
  • Make sure the screws are secured in the hook part of the hinges.
  • If the screws do not go into the hinges, adjust by tightening the screws just a little.
  1. Set up connections
  • You’ll find an Ethernet LAN cable in the box.
  • Take that cable and connect one end with the tag that reads “Connect this side of LAN cable to Sensor ONLY” to the sensor.
  • Connect the other end DIRECTLY to your PC Ethernet port.
  • Take out the power cable, power adapter, and power connector.
  • Connect all three accordingly and connect the “Power Connector” end directly to the sensor.
  • Turn on the red switch.
  • Check the connection status.

5) Install the software

After setting up the connections, you’ll need to install one of the following simulation software depending on your purchase:

  1. Uneekor’s Ignite, Refine, or Refine+ 
  2. E6 Connect
  3. TGC 2019
  4. GS Pro
  • Insert the USB drive with the software package into your PC.
  • Transfer the license code sent from support@uneekor.com to the USB drive.
  • Install the software.

Accuracy Analysis of Uneekor QED

Although the Uneekor QED is popular for delivering a high rate of accuracy, I’ll still choose to play safe before giving a final verdict. 

Watch this YouTube video from The Learning Tee because I’m going to use it as a reference for our accuracy analysis:

Complete gameplay!

As you can see in the video, the response on ball striking was surprisingly quick, simulations were smooth, and the metrics were also accurate.

Talking about the simulation software performance, there wasn’t any lag throughout the gameplay, and the graphics were also stunning. 

Based on these facts, there isn’t anything that can be counted as a drawback in terms of the Uneekor QED’s accuracy. 

So yeah, I give it a green signal!

Cost Analysis of Uneekor QED

Now that we’ve discussed all the important details about the Uneekor QED, things have finally come to the point where we’ll investigate whether this $7,000 golf launch monitor is worth its price or not.

If we look at the basics, including its accuracy, precision, and measurable data metrics, the launch monitor has unparalleled performance. 

Plus, it’s the only golf launch monitor in its price range to introduce real-time video recording, which is a super useful feature. 

With regard to software support, it provides plenty of options to choose from, including Uneekor’s Ignite, Refine, and Refine+, as well as TGC 2019 and E6 Connect.

Speaking of the costs, $7,000 is reasonable for this amazing package, but things aren’t that simple here. 

If you’re considering buying it for your golf simulator setup, you have to pay extra costs for your golf simulator enclosure, hitting mats, and PC. 

So is it worth the money? I’d say yes! Because it has got everything for a golfer who’s buying it for game improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the hitting area on Uneekor?

The Uneekor QED requires 7’–8′ of space between the impact screen and the projector, with an additional 4’–5’ space for backswing. So you need to have at least 10’–12′ of hitting area. 

Which simulation software works best with the Uneekor QED?

Although the Uneekor QED supports many high-end golf simulation software, its own Refine+ software has an edge over them because of its Optix features.

Is the Uneekor QED good for outdoor use?

You can use the Uneekor QED outdoors, but it will slightly compromise its performance. Furthermore, you’ll need to protect it from humidity and precipitation.

Final Thoughts

I have laid down every detail about the Uneekor QED in this conclusive guide, and from all the information we have, I can safely say that it’s worth the hype. 

Although there are some shortcomings in the budget segment as you’ll only get the launch monitor for the price you’re paying, it’s still cheap compared with a $40,000 golf simulator setup with very close performance and features. 

If I were to buy a golf launch monitor under the $10,000 price tag, the Uneekor QED would definitely be on my list. 

Catch you in the next one!
