  1. Nice 2nd Protocol review! Do you think the clubhead speed variances between the different weight clubs was more due to your move and the weather? I was a little surprised the different clubs didn't increase at the same rates over time. @tony@CIC
  2. Have you incorporated that feel in your on course swing? If so, have you noticed any difference in ball striking or length you hit clubs doing that?
  3. Good review. It's well thought out and easy to follow. You have clearly become a Raving Fan! How long did it take you to stop losing shots to the right? What did you do to fix it?
  4. I haven't been posting my results mainly because I'm still in the intro protocol for another two weeks and because I'm really more interested in what others have to say. I'm only five weeks in and I took a week off when my back was in some pain. I just want to share that I'm a senior in my late 60s and I've lost a lot of speed in the last several years. In July, I checked my clubhead speed with my driver and it was 75-79 mph. I even took out an old Callaway Razr Hawk driver that is my wife's old driver and only swung it at 78-79 mph! I looked at my old data from 2016 and found my 9 iron was 78-79 mph at that time. I got the Super Speed system and a Swing Speed Radar. I had a hard time the first session getting the GREEN club to 80 mph. Now five weeks in, I have the yellow and green club hitting 101-102 and the blue club going 99-100. I checked my Ping G30 and am swinging it around 89-91 mph. That's easily 10 mph +. Like so many have said, I find this system works, even for old guys.
  5. Well written review @MaxEntropy , Thank you for posting it. You hit on something at the end that I was just thinking about. I used to have a lot of lower back pain and I thought it was exacerbated by practicing. Once I started on Super Speed a month ago, my lower back pain has disappeared, just like you mentioned in your review. Oh and while I'm just in the intro protocol I've gained more than I expected when I do the workout.
  6. That's interesting. I think I'm gaining a little off the tee, but I can't be sure. Columbus has been in a dry spell for a while and the ball is running in the fairway. My instructor mentioned he thought my clubhead speed is higher in a lesson when I was hitting a 6 iron. I think my carries haven't changed much. Time to get on the Flightscope I guess.
  7. Haha- one of the things I've learned from using the Super Speed sticks is that my backswing is consistently at 25 mph on the radar unit. I never even thought about backswing speed before.
  8. If I remember correctly, you started around 80 mph, and now you can get the sticks to 102/103 on average? That's amazing! Congratulations. Maybe SuperSpeed sticks work, but you put in the effort and gained 25 mph. I admire your commitment. Guys like you and Tony really motivate. Thank you.
  9. Funny you say that. After reading that article, I began exercising my back. I did my Super Speed protocol 1 sessions Saturday and today. Both times it immediately loosened my back and the pain went away. Saturday my speeds were slow, but today I reached a couple of new highs. Of course my highs- mid 90s are slower than most of the testers starting point
  10. That's awesome Tony. You keep proving there is hope for us old guys!
  11. FWIW, I read an article about managing lower back pain today, and it stressed activity. Based on that I did my session of protocol 1. My speeds were down a bit from early this week, but magically my back feels much better! https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2017/8/4/15929484/chronic-back-pain-treatment-mainstream-vs-alternative?utm_campaign=vox.social&utm_source=facebook&utm_content=voxdotcom&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR2doCVoqe-OgBs6X9NfHI2thJue1bPtP_JRkrGn8a0uRYPcZCbsuZzTKg0 I also tried the "McGill Big Thee Back Exercises" Mods, please accept my sincere apologies if this is posted in the wrong place.
  12. Great post! Speaking of injuries, has anyone had some persistent lower back pain start while using the Super Speed sticks?
