Arccos Link Pro Review

Arccos Link Pro Review: A Seamless Stat Tracking Experience

If you want to learn more about your game, tracking stats is a crucial piece of the puzzle. 

However, writing down your fairways, greens, and number of putts is an outdated and ineffective solution. Instead, you need to learn your strokes gained in the four main categories of the game (off the tee, approach, around the green, and putting). 

Enter Arccos Golf. 

They’ve made it easier than ever to track your stats with their Smart Sensors and Smart Grips. But their latest accessory – the Link Pro – is making it even better.

In this Arccos Link Pro review, I’ll review how this new accessory can provide more accurate data to help your game like never before. 

Arccos has two core products to track your stats from tee to green – the Smart Sensors and Smart Grips. Each sync with the Arccos app on your smartphone to provide detailed data about strokes gained. Plus, the app also has a rangefinder feature, Smart Caddie, and many other features.

But a lot of golfers don’t want their phone with them at all times during the round. Plus, the old system made you wear a tracker on your belt, so you always had to explain to players the purpose of the device. 

This is where the Arccos Link Pro comes in handy. 

Key Takeaways 

  • Tracking your statistics is one of the best ways to learn more about your game and identify which parts are holding you back.
  • But manually tracking your stats is challenging and not as accurate as using an app like Arccos Golf. 
  • They have revolutionized the game of golf with their Smart Sensors and Smart Grips. These devices screw into the grips of your clubs (or are the grips themselves) to easily track your performance during the round.
  • Now the Link Pro makes it easier than ever to get even more accurate data without having your phone near you.

Arccos Smart Sensors 3 Review

Arccos Sport Sensors and Arccos Smart Grips 

Before jumping into the new Link Pro accessory, let’s first provide a brief overview of the magic behind Arccos Golf. They have two products that make tracking stats easier than ever. In fact, they’ve tracked more than 850 million shots to learn more than ever about amateur golfers.  

The first is the Arccos Sport Sensors.

These screw into the grip of each club and sync with their app to track your shots during the round. Thirteen sensors are included and a new P3 putter sensor is included as well.

The other option is using Arccos Smart Grips. Instead of screwing into the butt-end of the grips, the grips themselves are the trackers. 

Arccos has partnered with big names like Ping, Cobra, and more so they’re pre-installed when buying certain new clubs. And you can always buy more grips to ensure each club tracks your on course performance. 

Both the grips and sensors track your round and sync with the app (which works with iOS and Android platforms). There is a $12.99/month fee that is billed annually to keep using the stat tracking features. 

Arccos Link Pro Review

So, what’s the difference between the Link Pro and the Smart Sensors or Smart Grips? Here’s how Arccos described it on their website.

“New Link Pro is next generation tech that allows Arccos members to automatically track shots right from their pocket, without a phone. Completely redesigned with new microphones, enhanced GPS and now comes with a wireless charging case. Arccos Link Pro, play the game your way.”

This is a very small device that weighs less than 25 grams, measuring only 2.25” x 1.25” x .75”. It’ll fit in your pocket with ease and track your shots throughout the round. 

Impressive Battery Life

The new Link Pro case has a USB-C charging port (which is used for the iPhone 15 models) and is fully charged in four hours. The case will power the device for about 12 hours before needing another charge and they recommend keeping it in the device when not in use. 

You can easily check the battery life on the device as each of the four LED lights represents 25% battery life. If the lights are blinking, that means the device is still charging. Once it’s fully charged, the lights will stop blinking and remain illuminated.  

Turn on the power button and sync it with the Bluetooth to your phone. The Link Pro battery itself should last about 10 hours, which depending on the pace of play, is about two rounds of golf. 

Arccos notes that you should not store it in your golf bag under extreme temperatures (hot or cold). They also note that you should keep this accessory in your carry on bag, not your golf travel bag.

More Accurate Data 

For the most accurate data, they suggest keeping the device in the front pocket of your lead leg. It’s so small that you won’t even feel like it’s there as you swing the golf club. 

The new Link Pro has improved GPS and additional microphones, as well as a “mark the pin” location. When standing next to the pin, take out the tracker and hit the “pin location button” that is located on the side of the device. This lets you get the most accurate strokes gained data for putting as well. 

When you’re done with the round, make sure it’s synced up and in the app, make sure to end the round. Then turn off the device and put it back in the charging case.

If you forget to turn it off, the device will automatically turn off after 15 minutes. But when you restart the device, you will need to toggle the power switch on then off to use for the round. 

FAQs

Do you have more questions about Arccos Golf? If so, keep reading through the most frequently asked questions and answers now. 

Is Arccos better than Garmin?

Both are great products, but have very different benefits. 

Arccos is all about tracking your stats with their custom grips and Sport Sensors. This makes it easy to track your stats during the round to better understand your performance. 

While Garmin has products like launch monitors, rangefinders, golf watches, and golf GPS devices. These features are more geared towards using them during the round for a better tee box strategy and approach shot strategy

Some Garmin watches do have similar features to Arccos to help track your clubs used for shots and better understand performance. But it doesn’t seem like it’s quite as detailed or in-depth statistic tracking as Arccos, which is their sole purpose. 

No, that’s the beauty of this accessory – you get a phone free experience. You can use the app on your phone if you need extra information about the course, but it’s entirely optional.

However, you might want to if you’ve never played the course before. It has a new A.I. powered rangefinder to help take your game to the next level. It provides an Arccos number that factors in all sorts of weather conditions.

As noted on their website, “Players can see the impact in yards plus or minus, how wind speed, direction, temperature, humidity and altitude could be affecting their shots in real-time. The altitude calculation is personalized to each Arccos player based on any altitude differential between their home course and the one they’re playing.”

Do Arccos sensors work without a subscription?

No, the sensors will not work without an active membership. 

But I think it is one of the best investments you can make in your golf game. When you have accurate data about your round, it makes it easy to know what to focus on in practice or when working with an instructor. 

Is there a guarantee?

Yes, they offer a 30-day no questions asked money-back guarantee. The only exclusion is with the Arccos Smart Grips, as they’re installed on your golf clubs. 

Arccos Link Pro Review

My Experience

I grew up tracking my stats in a journal with fairways, greens, and putts. This was well before we had all this incredible data about strokes gained. Needless to say, I’m impressed with how far we’ve come and how amateur golfers can access this detailed information.

One thing is for sure, if you want to play better golf, you need to learn your weaknesses and strengths. Sometimes golfers (and humans in general) aren’t very good at subjectively identifying our strengths and weaknesses. 

This is where stat tracking comes in.

Arccos Golf objectively shows where you need to improve and how you rank vs. other amateur golfers. This will give you a clear blueprint to work on specific areas of your game and hopefully reach your golf goals sooner. 

Final Thoughts 

The Arccos Link Pro is a perfect solution to tracking your round while still being 100% present and not glued to technology. 

I’m someone that likes to avoid my phone as much as possible when playing golf. My screen time is already way too high, so golf is a good time to disconnect from it all. I’m glad they created this easy to use accessory and know it can have a big impact on your game.
