Swing and Flink will do the talking.
16 July 2017
Awesome product. Came across this item in an AD in Facebook.
I was apprehensive about shelling out 3500 bucks for a badminton sensor. However, it didn't disappoint. 1 day of use and here goes my review.
The main body is quite slim and fits perfectly on the end of the racquet shaft. In my opinion the silicone holder is better than the adhesive holder. The silicone holder cups the Flink tightly with the shaft and in turn protects it from crashes. The ruggedness of Flink is yet to be tested. ( I don't want to deliberately do a crash test though :) ).
Coming to the effect of Flink on the grip/ hold of the shaft. It sits nicely at the end of the shaft and the silicone holder in no way hinders the hand grip. It just fits perfectly and while playing you won't even feel that something extra is there on the shaft. As Flink is very light weight, it doesn't add up to the racquet weight.
Functionality : The body connects to the app quite quickly. The app is quite simple and not at all convoluted. Very minimal screens and not clotted with irrelevant information. The app also has a live view which shows the live swing details of the racquet.
Gave an empty hard swing to the racquet and the live view quite perfectly showed the swing details. It also categorizes the swing as drop, smash, clear, etc which is quite informative.
Flink perfectly recorded two hours of my game information. On syncing it with the app it displayed the swing information of the last two hours. So you don't have to worry about Bluetooth connectivity while playing.
The app screens are quite few. The numbers shown even though informative and helpful but makes you keep wanting for more. Some more analytics into the app would be great. Currently it shows the swing details of the day and the average swing details. Lot can be improved in the app front. I'm not aware whether the app syncs and saves my swing information into my Google account. That would be helpful. Give the user an option to sign out and login using another account so that someone else can try it out and sync their data.
Overall, satisfied with the item. Happy for shelling out 3500 for this. The Spelmera team were quite helpful and made sure the item got delivered. The item was couriered through DTDC so be rest assured that it will get delivered on time.
Thanks a lot team for the awesome product, and also for your assistance. Keep it up.
Keep smashing and swinging.
