Just joined so that I can contribute to this thread because the articles on MGS helped me with my decision to buy the DST.     About me: My usual rounds are between 85-90 strokes.  I lose stroke

I was lucky enough to be selected to test the DST Compressor training aids.  I've taken them out and given them an initial assessment and will start to share that in this thread.  Here is a little abo

Dag gone it, every time I read a new MGS Review, I want to buy something else . Thanks guys Keep up the great work     Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

DST and its not even close. The Tour Striker only magnifies your misses and provides feedback . The DST actually gets you in the correct position and trains your to strike the ball correctly.

I finally got around to buying the wedge and have enjoyed using it so far. I feel this is gonna help my short game so much this season because I have a tendency to kinda throw the club at the ball and not get my hips or hands thru.

Wow these are some gnarly looking clubs. I'm glad I stumbled into this review. For a second, I thought those pictures at address were action shots with a good camera until I realized the clubs were incredibly bent 🤪🤪

 

I'm really glad to see low cappers included in this review. So often, I think of training aid=high cap golfer. I'm not a low cap but hope to get there someday.

 

I'm also happy to see that these clubs helped with those that struggle with coming over the top. I'm bitten with this ailment from top to bottom in my bag so this will probably be a useful drill for me.

 

 

Chalk up another golf "thing" I need to add to the wish list.

 

 

I'm sorry to see trdblack put a nasty sky mark on the hybrid but got a kick out of the fact that GoBlue got a lefty wedge 🤣

 

 

 

 

And lastly, a question for the reviewers in case you come back and see this:

Are you still using these training aids? If so, can you put an estimate on strokes you've gained as a result of using these?

Edit: Just finished reading the rest of the thread and noticed tons of folks on the forum have this as well. Same question to you all.

I use mine from time to time. It's defiantly a very good training aid. I've said many times that I could play a whole bag a clubs built like the Compressor. My model is an 8i. It's easy to hit. I don't pay any attention to the alignment marks on the head. I just use my normal setup and swing. You'll naturally make a good move on the ball since it's got that curved shaft.

Tip... be prepared to replace the stock grip it ships with. It'll turn to stone quickly.

I still use mine.  And it is also probably the most used training-aid/warmup club on tour

 

  • 240 players on the PGA/European Tour are using it.
  • In 15 months 40 of those players have won.
  • 27 Major Champions use it.
  • 15 of the top 25 in the world ranking use it.

Now the question becomes: where can I find a deal on them? eBay is totally empty, which is strange.

Contact them on Twitter and they'll give you a promo code for 10% off.

 

And you won't find them on ebay because nobody who uses it wants to get rid of it!

I agree on the white line on the club.  Don't focus too much on that.  It helps initially trying to get everything aligned but once you get it you don't even need to bother with it.

 

Both the 8i and Wedge are def worth it.

ABSOLUTELY still use mine every range session. These have changed my ball striking a lot; for the better. After we started the test, I was amazed how many tour pros have these in their bags.

DST also has a ton of great videos on YouTube. Just a great training aid.

Me too!  I use it as my warmup club before every round.  It keeps extra wear from occurring on my irons and sets me in the right ballstriking pattern before I play.

OK so how about the CR-10? The website defines this as a transition club between the compressor and a regular iron so I'm curious if anyone gave it a try.

 

As far as I can tell, it's not different than a regular club so I'm not sure what the advantage is.

It has the alignment aid that gets your hands in the right position at address, but without the curved shaft.
