What have you bought lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

picked up a SKLZ Gold Flex trainer (48") and tried it for the first time yesterday before playing. WOW! That might be the best swing aid I've ever used. Really, really, really gets you to understand tempo and rhythm. Plan on swinging it at least 25x per day.

Is this the same thing as the orange whip?

I've never used the orange whip so I can't say for sure.  I did quite a bit of research because I was torn between this and the OW.  The OW is very similar but it has a counterweight in the grip and that is proprietary to the OW so SKLZ doesn't have it.  Other than that they are for the same purpose and pretty similar (from what I've been able to read based on people who have used/owned/tried both).

 

The big factor for me was price.

The OW starts at 99.00 (even on Ebay!) but the SKLZ was 52.49 on Amazon.  

For that price the OW can have their little ball at the end of the grip!   :lol:

Pretty close and the same concept.  We have the OW at my club for member use and when I went to get my own I ended up with the SKLZ version for price.  I think it was like $50 less expensive than the OW.  I use mine before every round and range session.

+100 on this... I used it at the range as well... I alternated between the SKLZ (3-4 swings) and a club (3-4 balls) and it really was noticeable.

 

Good thing about this is you can keep it in your bag as it's not considered a 14th club so you can bring it right to the tee box and give it a few swings right before you tee off on #1.  Of course, you can't use it during your round.... :)

That's what I was thinking! I've always looked them up and heard great things about them, but could never justify spending a hundo on one.

Came close to buying a 7 wood yesterday then had a moment of clarity that I don't hit fairway woods particularly well.

Picked up a pair of Nike LC4 shoes in the Volt color via a trade. Couldn't find them locally unfortunately.

Did not make it to the club today to grab my shoes for the trip tomorrow so I ran out and got a pair of Adidas Boost BOA shoes at Golf Galaxy. Figured for $100 they will get some use beyond tomorrow.

I got a new Adams Red Hybrid X flex brand New off Global Golf for $23. Couldn't resist. Also new Nike FI premiere golf shoes for $45 off eBay. Last week I ordered some Nike VR Pro Combos 4-PW with Project X PXI shafts at 6.5. The Nike shoes so far are amazing, best I've had. Getting out to the range next week to try out the hybrid and irons. IMG_4812.JPGIMG_4826.JPGIMG_4827.JPG

Bought a couple dozen of Wilson Duos for $30. Couldn't really pass that price up. One dozen white, one dozen yellow.

I boosted the economy of the Village of Pine Valley today. Grabbed a few shirts, a few hats, some ball coins and a putter cover. Add to that some gifts that I got for biddies of mine and some things for my son and it was an expensive day.
