  1. Lol. You are right. No way I would wear this thing in front of people. I would use it on my home net. Much the same as I have never seen someone wear a Swing Jacket. I do think this device has two useful features. I think it stops the inside takeaway...and I think it helps people feel the “Magic Move” of the transition. However I have not used this device so I could be way off. I was intrigued about it by all the positive praise it has been receiving.....it must be worthwhile at some level.
  2. I see that these are sold out on Tour Strikers web site. I checked E Bay to see if anyone was dumping their used planemate. There is one on there and it is already at $250 bid. Gulp! I should have bought ten of these and resold nine of them at a profit to pay for the one I would keep for myself.....and probably have some golfing money left over.
  3. Mr Hicksta and others using this device. I have to ask. Does this thing work? Is your ballstriking better? I love training aids and I have owned many over the years. Some are better than others. It has always been my feeling....whether it is real or not is up for debate....that the best aids are the ones that you can hit balls with. Would love to hear from you guys further thoughts. Thanks in advance.
  4. These are some great posts in this thread. Pre shot routine will save you shots without a doubt. The pre shot routine needs to be the same each time. Mike Bender has a great book about the eight second pre shot routine. The pre shot routine helps me eliminate fear and second guessing. I always likened it to free throws in basketball. Back in the day....it would be the same for each free throw....three bounces of the ball....give it a little spin in my hands...and go. I feel the more robotic you are in this pre shot routine....the more it can save you because it becomes something more automatic and you just let your body take over the swing instead of overthinking the shot and your mechanics. I feel this routine is especially helpful when the pressure is turned up a notch.
  5. What are the names of the five (at least that’s all I can see in the picture) training aids attached to Roy McAvoy in the classic movie Tin Cup? I can name four of them. How about you?
  6. I have a question for you guys who own this training aid. Does this do the same thing that is shown in this My Golf Spy training aid hack article?
  7. Without a doubt....one of my best golf purchases ever second only to lessons. When spring starts I am ready to go. I know exactly how far all my clubs go which is huge. I have used it to dial in all my wedge distances. You already have the net and mat......go for it.
  8. I went to school in Cleveland. I loved going to Jacobs Field in the nineties and watching those teams they had. They always sold that place out back then. Dont forget Kenny Lofton....Albert Belle....Omar Vizquel. Very fun.
  9. C Nosil nailed it. You need to know your tendencies and play to them. Know where you don’t want to miss and adjust accordingly. On some greens and pin positions based on your tendencies.....40-50 feet away with a putt at birdie is a good shot. Hopefully you know how far you “carry” each club as that makes the above process much easier. I have nothing further to add. Good luck with your quest.
  10. Good observations. I believe age and your natural athletic ability including your percentage of fast twitch muscle fibers are the two most important factors that you mentioned. I would be curious if someone did have unlimited time and resources how much they could theoretically increase their ceiling.
  11. I have been in maintenance mode all summer long. I have not lost any of my added speed or distance. Not sure how much more I can gain to be honest. We all have our ceilings and I feel I am probably close to mine. With that said.....the investment in the Super Speed sticks was definitely worth it.
  12. Joe/New York Current Handicap: 1.8 Current Irons: Mizuno JPX 850 forged (7-GW). Cleveland HB launcher irons (4-6) 7 iron carry distance: 152 yard average
  13. I am picturing an avid golfer who just broke up with his girlfriend (over the amount of golf he plays of course).....but forgot to get his clubs out of her house prior to the breakup.
  14. Just found this thread which was started in January so I am literally thousands of pushups behind but I am in Shankster! i already do lots of bodywork workouts but now I have something to be accountable to.....
