    Thanks for the info - I'm considering some speed sticks and will need this as well.  Curious your feedback on accuracy as you use it.   I know the swing speed radar has always gotten high marks for it's accuracy.

    So I've been using the SwingMate with the SuperSpeed sticks and it works great!  I was concerned it might not work like the PRGR, but it's perfect.  Saved a bunch of $$, also.  You can find them on eBay for under $50 pretty easily (eBay Search - SwingMate ).

  2. There's new software in the works for SkyTrak, version 4.0 is still in BETA, but you can download it.  I'm using it now and haven't had any issues.  Best part is if you don't like it, just put your current version back on it.

  3. First name:  P.J.

    City & State:  Highlands Ranch, CO (outside of Denver)

    Do you currently walk the majority of your rounds:  Walk with a pushcart, played 105 rounds in 2020.

    Do you use a push cart now, if yes which one:  Clicgear 3.5+

     

    I've been thinking that at some point I'd like to switch to an Electric cart, this would be an amazing opportunity!

  4. Looks like Swing Mate might be a better priced option than buying the PRGR / Swing Speed Radar.

    I just picked one up on eBay for under $40 shipped.  That's a no-brainer compared to the $199 price tag on Swing Speed's site.

     

    Glad I caught this thread!

    Thanks, -- Peejer

    If they are able to stick to the same schedule as the past, I think it will be about 3 to 4 weeks from now.  

    They have to slow roll the information to keep us coming back!  Pretty simple marketing strategy.

    Few questions for you. How many shots total did you hit for each ball and club?
    I’m surprised to see such a difference in spin between v1 and v2. I play them both and don’t know that I’ve ever been able to see or feel a difference. I’m not the best player so that shouldn’t mean all that much.
    The carry difference with your driver from v1 to v2 is also very surprising.
    The Driver seems to be where there is the biggest difference between all of them.


    Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    I hit a LOT of shots, but only kept the good one's.  I only kept the best 5 as I didn't want my bad swings to impact the results.

    For the Driver, if it was more than 15 yards off target, I discarded it.

    For the 7-iron, if it was more than 10 yards off target, I discarded it.

    For the PW, if it was more than 7 yards off target, I discarded it.

     

    No real science to that, just was a self-imposed parameter so I wouldn't skew the numbers.

  7. Sorry for the delay, I ran the tests - but with the holidays, forgot to post them.

    This is a comparison of the Kirkland 3-piece, Kirkland 3-piece v2.0 and a Titleist ProV1

    This tests the Driver - 7 iron - PW.

    I alternated which balls I used first, second, third to try to normalize the results.

  8. Just got back from our local Costco.  The Kirkland wedges, putter, gloves and 3-piece 2.0 balls are all in stock.

    2 dozen of the balls were $24.95.  I have some of the (apparently 1.0) balls, so now that I know they're two different balls - I think I'll double back and buy some.

    I'll run them both on my SkyTrak and see if I can tell any difference.

    Should be interesting...

  9. The most recent giveaway here was the SuperSpeed sticks.  Who won that?  I looked around and can't find an announcement.

    They were supposed to be announced or at least drawn on September 12th.

    Am I looking in the wrong place?  Didn't see it in the forums nor on the main page?!?

  10. Really enjoyed your write-up and review.  It definitely resonated with me and I was surprised how much so.

    I'm originally from Akron, Ohio.  I'm 54 and work out at least twice a week and am in better than average shape for my age, though I fight lower back issues too.

    My swing speed hangs around 94-98mph, hitting 100+ every now & then.

    I've  been eyeing the SuperSpeed system for a while - based on your review, I'm sold.  I'm hoping to win the one here on Sept 12th, if not - I'm buying it.

    Thanks for taking the time and dedication to see it through to fruition.

  11. Thanks for the responses - I picked up a Clicgear 3.5+ from Joker.  Luckily he lives about 30 min away and I avoid shipping costs!

    Appreciate it, Joker!

    So I'm not in the market for a cart, any longer - unless someone has an Upright Caddy/Clever Caddy cart.  They quit making those a few years ago, so unlikely to find one - but you never know!

    Thanks again to all,

    Thanks - this is actually what I have now - well the Rukkett version like you and I agree it looks the same.  I've had it for a year and a half and unfortunately I'm close to putting a ball through the net, so I've been careful about how much I've used it the past couple months.  To save money, i would consider coming up with a solution to get the impact screen and still use the rukkett and just buy a new net for it, but unsure how that would work.  Maybe forgo the screen and just use an old 55" tv.

    FYI - you can buy a replacement net directly from Rukkett for $44.99

    I'm with you - I did already get consent from the wife for the skytrak.  I'm leaning towards the net return pro with impact screen for ease since I will have to take it up and down in the garage pretty often.

    I have a decent mat, well section, I just bought an 11" by 30" section of the country club elite reel feel.  Was able to get that for $35 bucks and has been well worth it.

    I recently sold my Rukkett Golf Haack Net - loved it, but went with a full cage with an impact screen/projection system.  Amazon sells the same exact net at a better price, its ~$91 and currently showing in stock.  This net design is pretty wide to catch errant shots and goes up/down easily.  I had it for 2 years and no issues.  Definitely recommend it because it slowly kicks the balls back to you so you don't have to keep walking down to collect them.

  14. Has anyone picked up one of the Pyramid Putters?  I've watched the "made for television" infomercials and wonder if it's worth the hype?

    The website claims it will save you up to 9 strokes a round!  Hah!! Seems VERY unlikely.  Sure wish they would've been tested as part of this year's "Most Wanted" putters.

    Hey MyGolfSpy - here's another myth buster opportunity for you!!
