If you looked through the new issue of Golfdom, you’ve seen our feature on Spectrum Technologies. In that article, I wrote about how the FieldScout TDR 300 has really caught the industry by storm over the last couple years. Spec Tech told me that sales on the TDR 300 really went crazy in 2011 and 2012.

The number of units have been redacted, but the scope of the TDR 300’s success can be seen clearly in this bar chart, provided by Spectrum Technologies.

Their forecast for 2013: “This year we are starting to see a little bit of leveling off, but it’s still a significant increase over last year’s sales.”
