  1. I bought a SKLZ Gold Flex Swing Trainer 48" a year and a half ago for $33.58 on Amazon. It is selling now for $72. I bought it after trying my buddies Orange Whip at the range. My thought is that it would (1) allow me to warm-up easily and (2) help with the follow through. My first impressions: The "head" feels heavier than the Orange whip because it doesn't have the counterbalance on the end of the grip (the only difference I could come up with from the orange whip) I could feel if I rush my release, aka casting, in the flex of the shaft It forces me to slow down my tempo The heavy weight helps keep momentum through impact for a full follow through I tried using it every practice session for a few weeks but, I ended up only using it from time to time and found it actually hurt my game more than helped because the heaviness of the club feels so different that it made all my actual clubs feel feather-lite. It seemed to really alter my swing tempo that I ended up not having a good round if I spent too much time with the SKLZ Swing Trainer. I can see a benefit to golfers who: Need help finishing rotation Slowing down their tempo Balance Changing the release point But, that is if the golfer really is just focusing on very specific things where the flexing shaft with a heavy weight help the golfer feel the swing as more fluid and smooth. I would not personally buy this again, nor an Orange Whip. I'm glad I only paid $33.58. I would never buy it at $72. Some people on eBay are selling them for $30-40. It might be helpful for a new golfer, a stiff golfer, but not a skilled golfer.
