Just looking for some feedback on the Superspeed golf sticks and radar.

I have read a bit about pros using them but am interested to hear about any forum members experiences.

What sort of improvements have people seen? Any negatives?

Price would be my biggest negative. Seem very expensive
Yes it is fairly expensive but its cheaper than the latest drivers that some people will buy every year or so. If the potential speed improvements of 5mph+ that I have heard about are true then its got to be an investment worth considering.

I'm not sure how much you need the real time feedback of the monitor to improve which is my sticking point currently. I'm not saying they're the same but I was looking at the swing speed golf version at just over a £100. Toying with that or a putting mat for my isolation time.

I tried a couple of them as one of our pros had a set. Liked the lightest one and thought it would be a good walm-up tool but as you had to buy all three they were prohibitivly expensive. Just didn't think I could do the daily exercises as the "system" requires.

In the end a got hold of a couple of old driver shafts and added weights to the bottom. Whilst I appreciate these are not the same they do enough of the job to be worthwhile for me.

You definitely need an extra 5 mph Andy.;)

How are you ? Back at Ferndown ?

Pros - They work really well. I went from around 98mph to 104mph with my driver after 8 weeks. Also a decent workout, you'd be surprised how out of breath you get when you are swinging as hard as you can.

Negatives - don't do it during the season, it knocks your timing out and you will spray the ball all over the place. Also, quite a few people seem to get injured using them.

They aren't cheap but they do work, you will definitely be swinging faster after 8 weeks. Whether you can keep the ball on the planet is another thing though.

Surely any fast swinging exercise that a golfer does for 8 weeks will increase their speed?
Anyone could do this with just a normal club really.

Maybe but there have been studies that prove the method of super speed (the different weights) definitely works.
I guess you could try swinging your driver as hard as you can for 8 weeks and see if it works or not.

all of this seconded. It all honestly it all boils down to core strength and movement. Even superspeed recommend improvements in these areas for some before use. I went for superspeed as there seamed a bit more science in their marketing. I would highly recommend giving birdietimetv app a go for a month first as they cover some great core movement and speed drills.
