Super Speed Round Up - Jbmullin
I want to first off apologize to the community for not being prompt on this review , it might seem silly but I take this responsibility seriously and due to an injury from over training (running not golf) I was basically limping for a couple months and work , life, covid concerns with kids all got in the way. Not making excuses for my absence but I do feel I owe one.
I want to again thank Super Speed and MGS for this great opportunity , it was a massive win for my golf swing and game, some control issues but I had those before, but seeing improved distance was a win.
A bit about my game .. its never where I want it or expect it to be , but I am more positive now than before.
Jody Mullin - YouTube - link to my you tube page where I have posted my reviews and wrap ups.
I typically average 220-230 off the tee on a good day.. my longest this last summer was 263 yards and had about 10 -15 more in the 245 plus range.. I know its in me to "hit bombs" just working on the consistency.
My miss is left.. and not just a little left... a lot left. I have been taking lessons as well and working on shafts and head settings etc to find the right setups.
Along with longer drives I was seeing shorter irons into greens and man what a difference that makes when you can go driver 7 or 9 and not driver 5 or hybrid .. made 4 birdies this year .. ive never made more than 2 before in a summer.
From a fitness stand point.. other than the hip issue , I am by my evaluation exceptionally fit.. I run over 100 kms per week every week and do HIIT training 4-6 days a week. Training for a marathon prior to COVID.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS :
Out of the box , the sticks themselves were good quality, only issue I had was the grips, not great in my opinion. somewhat slick and found I needed to use gloves when I would get further into the protocol. Out of the box not much really special , plan jane , not real bells or whistles. I don't recall seeing the protocols or guide in the box and would be a good add , maybe the protocols and a tracking book or something.
Physical Product: 15/20
not much here really , the sticks are color coded and easy to distinguish , only issue I have is the grips , would like to see something more quality.
This one is a tough one to score higher, its a great program and I seen a lot of benefit from it. We had a great start up call and set us up for moving into the testing protocol and the chat group had lots of chatter..
I will say this is a massive time commitment and something you really need to be committed to. I actually found it becoming a burden in the end and something I was not looking forward to as it took so much time and moving back and forth , knees , opposite sides. you need to be warmed up and have to be loose or you will for sure hurt yourself.
Part of the issue for me , I live in a place where we get 4-5 months a year of golf.. by the time October rolls around its usually near 0 degrees and risk of snow at anytime and then stays cold and winter until March.. it sucks. So I would rather be golfing every chance I get. I fully plan on committing to starting the swing protocols again this winter now that there are no courses or ranges open.
Hard to argue with the results of this protocol and program. I started off in the "Turtle" catagory and in the end was seeing my driver speeds up 12+ mph into the mid 90's or higher sometimes .. now like I have stated above.. accuracy literally went sideways... way left sideways .. so its a work in cooperation between the speed and accuracy.
Performance on the course, well this was one of the best seasons I have ever had and am looking forward to next season already. When drivers were playable, it was short iron in and not 3/5 wood/Hybrid/Iron. It makes such a massive difference to scoring.
These are not magic wands and you wont add speed or distance with out putting in the work, but if you do you will be pleased with the results.
Was not sure what I was expecting .. bells , whistles .. or other , but was really expecting a bit more when I opened the box, 3 sticks and not much else. Would really like to have the protocols included and perhaps a documentation book or something for speed tracking. I printed off the directions and pages from the website but for the cost of the program.. include them in the box. The grips could be better , really not great quality.
KEEP OR REGIFT: 9/10
These are keepers for me, I am looking forward to restarting the protocols this winter and see where I net out next spring when winter goes away for 3-4 weeks....
This program is worth the price and time it takes .. like most things in life , it takes work to be successful. You will not open the box , swing a few times and be hitting bombs. The warm up is extensive and you cant do this cold. If you put in the time you will see the benefits of your work. There are a lot of movements and I was somewhat confused by the benefits of the "swinging from the knees" but in the end follow the process and be happy with the results.
FINAL SCORE : 78/100
Jody Mullin - YouTube - follow along on my progress on my Youtube page , as I mentioned , I plan on working from start to finish again this off season and will keep posting updates.
Apologies for being so late with this post, and again a massive thank you to Superspeed and MGS for this great opportunity.
