Four Testers Wanted!!


DST Compressor 3 Club Set


It's Pop Quiz time.


What do Charley Hoffman, Sergio Garcia, James Hahn, Hideki Matsuyama and Danny Willett have in common?


Yes, they've all won some pretty big golf tournaments this year. But more specifically, they're all card-carrying members of DST Nation.







The DST Compressor is one the most unique and effective training aids we've ever reviewed here at MyGolfSpy.  According to DST, this funny looking golf club with the bent shaft works wonders in helping you impact the ball more crisply, consistently and powerfully.




Can this deceptively simple training tool make you a better ball striker? MyGolfSpy is looking for four dedicated golfers to try out the DST Compressor and see for themselves.




In this thread, please tell us the following:


1. Your name and home state/province

2. Your current handicap

3. How you think the DST Compressor Set can help your ball striking


Easy peasy, gang!


You MUST apply IN THIS THREAD to be eligible.


This testing opportunity is open to golfers in North American and Europe.

10.1 Handicap

I have a very early release (like so early that the shaft is swinging back by the time it gets to the ball) and end up with a high weak ball flight. I think the DST Compressor would help fix that.

If it does what it says, it should definitely help me with having my hands in the forward position at the bottom of my arc and have contact with the ball first before turf. Hitting FAT shots is disgusting...

I think this DST will help me with more consistent ball striking because I tend to cast a little too early some times and struggle to make solid contact with my longer irons which sacrifices distance and accuracy.

1. Chase / NY

2. 20-25 handicap (improving)

3. I have been working on learning to strike the ball with my irons. I have struggled with making sure my hands are in front of the ball when making contact and connecting with the ball before the turf. I'm perfectly happy being punished (by the DST clubs) if it ultimately improves my striking :)

Hi there I'm...

#1 Craig from...

#2 Halifax nova Scotia Canada.

Aka sharkhark

#3 I'm a 9 handicap.

I have always shot well but I'm told I don't hit it far. I don't have forward lean at impact I add loft. I get away with it in short irons but mid to long length shots I just don't swing properly to get that ball to compress right.

I have good swing speed with too much added loft. Help me!


I've always found the idea of this training tool to be very cool yet for some reason I haven't bought it already?


No better time to win a chance to review.

I once got asked on a golf review site in Toronto to do a guest review of a course & they said I did such a great job with pictures and my writing they ended up having me do 3 reviews.


So I promise should I win I would give it a thorough test and provide a detailed review but concise & to the point with pictures as well.


Pick me! Send this DST set of training clubs North of the border! 🏌️⛳

I actually don't know how/if it will improve my ball striking but really want to try it anyway.

My bag is a revolving door!

Handicap of 15

The DST Compressor Set could help my ball striking by getting clean contact on the ball.  The will help to reduce the amount of fat shots and work to get the correct amount of shaft lean at contact.  I previously used the Tour Striker 7 iron and this would be a good comparison.  I currently have an issue with thinning wedge shots, so this would also assist in getting better contact especially from tight lies.

I have not played golf in +20 years. Just picked up the game again and have trouble striking my irons solid and consistently.  Would like to try these out to improve my game.

Man... if you're a +1.6 I'd think you're already putting a decent amount of compression on the ball. If your hcp is that low now how low did it used to be?

i have been looking into this training aid for the last year. I've been working on keeping the hands forward on impact and I think this training aid will really help me get to the next level.


Thank MGS

I've been trying to give the wife the hint to get the DST for the past 2 birthdays with no luck.


Being the father of a 2 y/o and working a job that leaves little daylight when off the clock my average round has gone from low 80s during my early twenties (while managing a green grass shop ) to mid 90s in my early 30s. I think the DST Compressor will give me the feedback needed to make the short, lunch break practice sessions worth while and build upon one another versus feeling like I start over each time. To put it simply, my swing feels like an unfolding lawn chair.


I've been following the product reviews for quite a while and would love to see how this would help me and share my experience.

I tend to flip my hands near impact and when I try to keep my hands in front I tend to hit the turf before the ball, I really need help training myself to hit the ball first and then the ground.

I have a pronounced cast. When my timing is right it doesn't hurt me too much. Been trying to get rid of it for a while and think this tool will help.

Would also like to see a test of the swing shirt v. Swing jacket.
