  2. Just curious: did you check the video? Because I offered a comparison between the Devil Ball, the Pill, and the Putter Wheel. Do you have another in this category?
  3. So I know we've got member testing on these coming up in short order, but I bought my own and thought I'd start a thread for the rest of us to post our thoughts. My initial impression: very positive. Full disclosure: I am a bit of a PuttOUT fanboy. I've got two Pressure Trainers (one for home and the other for the office) and the big PuttOUT mirror with one gate. In general, their products seem very well made. And especially with the Pressure Trainer, they hit the sweet spot for training aids: 1) if you get better at the aid, you're likely going to be better at golf and 2) challenging in a way that's engaging and therefore encourages more practice. So far, I think the Devil Ball is hitting a similar sweet spot. It's hard to hit the ball properly on the flat side. I say a bit more about the flat side here: What I'm finding is that, when I do work with the Devil Ball, going back to a normal ball seems quite easy. My struggle, for what it's worth, is short putts. I'm statistically a good lag putter, but I miss way too many putts from 3-9', according to Arccos. So starting my putt on my intended line is a point of emphasis for me this winter.
  4. The is the most inside-baseball as I get: I was able to order a dozen. Tony Covey asked me to send him a half dozen, so that will be the source of the preliminary Ball Lab data. Should have those going his way in the next day or so.
  5. You're going to want to use Shift+Enter for your line breaks.
  6. Duration: 00:46:22 In this episode, Chris and Tony discuss Callaway's "Precision Technology" and whether or not you should care about it and trust it.

  7. Kirke and I just wrapped up our second week of Stacking. We both had to move a lot of snow today, so that might have not been the best for today's speed work. I didn't set any new high speeds with the "standard" Stack today, but I didn't lose ground either: So far, I'm definitely seeing more improvement than Kirke. I don't find this shocking, for a couple of reasons. He's got more skill than I do, so he feels more comfortable swinging all out as his normal swing. Part of speed training for most people (and definitely me) is just getting comfortable swinging that hard. Second, because he's a little guy, he needs to swing as hard as he can normally. So the fact that he's not made gains in the low-hanging fruit means (I suspect) that he was already pretty near his physical max speed.
  8. Duration: 00:57:34 In this episode, Chris and Tony welcome Lou Stagner to the podcast. You might know him as the Lead Data Analyst at Arccos, or the Assistant Coach for Princeton's Golf team, but either way, we get schooled in quantitative analysis.

  9. Through two sessions, I'm gaining more than Kirke in our work with The Stack. I'm posting this because I never beat Kirke in golf stuff. The reality: two sessions is likely more noise than signal, and if I'm "gaining" more than him now, it's because he was more efficient to begin with.
  10. I think this is true for the vast majority of amateur golfers (including me). I don't discount the importance of strength and fitness (and it's something I'm working on quite a bit). But I think most of the benefit from swing speed training isn't the stick, the weights, or the specific protocols: it's the feedback from the radar. Gradually learning what is fast is so critical to getting faster.
  11. Duration: 00:45:15 For most of us, it's time to winterize our golf gear. Chris and Tony share some helpful tips to get your gear ready for hibernation.

  12. 100°F and snow would be some wild weather.
  13. Oof. We got one big snowfall (about a foot) a few weeks ago, and then the snow has been quiet since. But it's coming back at the end of this week.
  14. I'm trying to work out the criteria to evaluate the winner. Simple mph gain would likely favor me. If we do percentage gain, that is probably fairer. Kirke has a significant potential advantage: only one of the two of us has the possibility of growing taller this winter I shot a DM to Sasho MacKenzie on Twitter, asking him for his way of measuring. Literally as I was composing this post, he replied with a formula for calculating "speed training score."
  15. Quick question: is there a reason you wouldn't use the Mevo+ for this? Kirke and I just got our Stacks today. We're going to have a bit of contest to see which of us can gain the most speed this winter.
  16. Grabbed a quick video here at the church office with my MidLock and another putter: 20221031_105953.mp4 For me, my setup and stroke are very similar with both putters. I putt with my left hand one knuckle below my right. Ball position is quite forward with both. So for me, when I got the MidLock, it was a pretty seamless adjustment. Still not sure if the MidLock will end up replacing my Edel as my main putter, but it's useful for me as a training aid regardless, because it's the stroke I want to use with any putter I'm using.
