Hi Everyone. I have recently purchased the Superspeedgolf.com training aids. The idea of this speed over training is to get your body to break through some swing speed barriers to add speed to your swing and therefore increase driver distance. I plan to update this with thoughts, results, photos, the odd video, to show you an honest review as I try to ramp up the speed with the big stick. Stay tuned.

Eager to hear your results and how it impacts your play.  One of the questions I have would be does it impact your actual swing.

I'm very interested in how this works out for you. I have lost a lot of speed/distance in the last two years and know I need to get in better shape. Maybe this is the ticket for me?

Very curious.

Able to get stats now and after you've used for a few weeks?

I've been seeing a lot of action on Twitter about this product. They're certainly doing a good job getting eyeballs, now I'm interested to see if it pays dividends for average Joes.

 

I'm gonna guess that the hardest thing about it will be keeping up with the regimen. Good luck with it and I hope you see positive results.

Have looked at these in the past but the price scared me off. Interested to hear your thoughts on how well they work.

If anyone has any further questions they want answered I'm happy to focus on these also. Will make sure I look at swing changes due to Superspeed. I'll also do a pre and updated ball flight look with driver at range.

Looking forward to hear your review.

 

While this is info is secondhand, my the facility my instructor teaches out of has the Swing Speed Radar the Superspeed guys sell.  According to him, the swingspeed consistently was registering 8mph slower than Trackman when using a Driver.

When the radar gun arrives I will also test this with SkyTrak.

Right So here is a bit of pre superspeed information direct from SkyTrak.  I suppose the key is Club Head Speed and this averaged 98.27mph over 15 driver shots with a top speed of 105mph.  I have used the superspeed trainer for about a week now so I'm heading to the range to do a session and then hit 15 more drives so I will keep you posted.

First Session over.  I've been doing the training for a week now and here are the results so far.Superspeed Training 1st Week Apr18.pdf

 

Happy with the results so far but the journey will be long I think.  The main improvements on club had speed on average of 6mph up to 104.5mph.  This means an increase in average carry distance of 19.2 yards.  Which is really encouraging. 

 

The top speed has only gone up by 2mph (up to 107mph) so far but as you can see the by the results the average is significantly higher so far.

 

What I would expect to happen with continued use is that the top speed (hopefully) creeps up above the 110mph and therefore the average sneeks up too.  I will continue to post.

 

I will also be doing a lot more core and general fitness / strength work.

 

Enjoy.

This is very intriguing, I have thought doing this as well, I'll be interested to see if you actually see a dramatic increase in distance once you get on the course

I ordered this today off Amazon. Was hoping to start tomorrow. Amazon then delivered it to the wrong apartment. Looks like training will start later this week,

To my mind this is really THE key thing.

 

It was noted in an earlier post that the one fastest swing was way above the average. As a very average golfer myself, I can attest to the fact that this correlates to that "one shot that keeps us coming back".

 

But if you get fit .. and especially get _golf-fit_ ... then you will build a more solid (and strong) base upon which more of your swings can get closer to that good one.

 

FYI, And, yes - as a 62 y.o. and reasonably fit guy that's what I'm doing now .. in addition to regular workouts (aerobics, calisthenics, isometrics, conditioning, stretching, etc...) I'm working on golf-specific movements and exercises.

 

I'm finding that by being able to *move* better my swing speed is increasing. The instructor I'm working with, and whom I trust, told me speed-specific training follows after "functional" training.

Had my wife order this for me today.  Worth a try, I don't see how it can hurt.

Intrigued and can't wait to read your comments if it works to increase your swing speed and make you hit it further

      (3) Dozen MTB-X Optic Yellow ($75 shipped) SOLD! SuperSpeed Golf w/ Swing Speed Radar ($250 obo shipped) RADAR SOLD! SuperSpeed Golf ($150 shipped) 7/17 EDIT: Balls and Radar sold! Thanks @edingc and @Slap for being great to work with. Speed sticks still for sale and dropped the price!
      Help me get back some money so I can spend it on more stuff! All prices OBO, not looking for trades please don't offer me anything. Shipping USPS from Hawaii, I might have to put the SuperSpeed in a different box to save on shipping, but I'll make sure to bubble wrap so they don't get damaged. PayPal Only.
      Selling my (3) Dozen MTB-X in Optic Yellow. Great ball, just not the one I'm looking for. Looking to move them all at once at a slightly discounted price, shipping included. I'll also include an extra sleeve that I have. These balls are testing well in the official thread, check it out: ($75 shipped)

      Also for sale is my lightly used SuperSpeed Golf with Radar. Great training aid but I just don't have the time to commit to it. Looking to sell it with the radar, but if I find a buyer for the radar first, I'll be willing to split it. ($250 OBO)

      This is a thread for those who are interested in reading or sharing golf ball comparisons! 
      Personally, I am in the stage of personal ball testing to try to find my next gamer for the next season or two. As such, I have been and am in the process of testing a variety of premium golf balls to see which fits my game and personal preferences. My posts in this site will be coming from off my new website (linked here for those who might want to check it out: https://griffinc6.wixsite.com/golfreviews) and will be in the form of a head to head matchup between two of the balls I am considering. During my tests, I will be taking two different models to the course and playing 9 holes with each in the same round, same day, and same conditions. In my posts, there won't be much in the way of technical data other than distance (measured via Shot Scope) but will rather be how I experienced the balls in terms of distance, spin, flight characteristics, performance and fell around the green, putting, quality, durability, and consistency. Once again, for my posts here, these are by no means a scientific test, but rather what I prefer, what I see, and how the balls perform for me. Therefore whatever performs for me might not translate to your game or your experiences with these products. I also invite everyone to post your own comparisons, head-to-heads, and reviews here as well!
      Now that that is out of the way, let the discussion begin!

      Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4 – Review
      A little background
      Let’s just start with this:  I am not a stellar putter.  I’m not even an average putter.  I’ve been known to be the ‘take a 6 footer for birdie and turn it into a 7 footer for par’ kind of putter.  I’d like to think part of it is due to the wide variation in greens I get to play on (anything from Plinko on the Price is Right to lightning fast U.S. Open greens), but the reality is I just haven’t been that good.  I’m a dad with limited income to spend on golf and little practice time.
      I started this journey to become a Scratch golfer about two years ago.  Since then, I won a free full bag fitting through Club Champion and had a blast doing it.  My favorite part of the whole experience was the SAM PuttLab fitting.  According to the PuttLab, I’m a consistent slight puller of the putter.  My wonderful human of a fitter recommended mallet style with some toe hang.  He laid out a bunch of putters that fit this mold and I immediately started arching the putter rather than pulling it.  I had never really seen that arch path before and I thought I was going to push every putt 3 feet right of the hole.  Needless to say, I made 25 straight 8 foot putts before we re-tested with my favorite putter of the bunch (the Ping Sigma 2 Tyne 4, which also happened to be the cheapest, go figure).
      The thing that was instantly attractive about this putter was the fact that it could be adjusted for length.  I’m 5’8”, take an athletic posture with my putter, and have long arms.  Long story short, I need a short putter, but everything you can buy off the rack comes between 33-35” (or so it seems).  We cranked it down to 32.5” and bent the loft to 1 degree.  Oh……….my…………GAWD!!!  I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it!!!
      Eye Candy (aka Looks)
      First off the looks.  This think is a beauty! 

      I love the tynes off the back, makes me think of a fighter jet’s wings.  Who doesn’t love fighter jets?!?  As an added bonus, they are very useful when picking the ball up after you just lagged that 40 footer to inside of 1 foot! 

      Grip
      The stock pistol grip is phenomenal as well.  It really helps me to get my thumbs on top of the grip and parallel to each other. 

      Insert:
      People seem to either love or hate insert putters.  I get it, there is soft and then there is too soft.  Not many people want to feel like they are hitting the golf ball with a marshmallow attached to a shaft.  The dual insert on the Ping Sigma 2 putter line is perfect for me.  Soft enough to feel good at impact, but not soft enough to make you question if you hit it hard enough.

       
      Overall:
      I absolutely enjoy putting practice now!  Get this, you ready for it?  I’ve taken nothing but my putter to the golf course and spent over 1hr putting with my kids!?!  Crazy right? Who does that???  Not a single driver, iron, or wedge hit.  Pure putting. That’s how much I love this putter and how much confidence it gives me.
      I’ve only had two rounds with it, but I’ve had 30 and 31 putts with it so far.  Both of those rounds had at least 3 putts that either lipped out or stopped within 1” of the hole.  Only one 3-putt (and that was on a 60 foot putt, all of my playing partners 3-putted that horrible green lol).  From 5-8 feet, I feel like it is going in all the time.
      Had I the foresight to know that I would be joining MGS, I would have taken stats with my previous putters (yeah, I’m the guy who had like 7 putters all on the bench ready to get in the game whenever the starter started 3-putting) and run an ANOVA on putting metrics to see if this new putter is significantly better or if it is all in my head.  I have since sold those putters and am on the road to a single putter relationship.  You have to give this putter a try if you like the looks of a mallet style fang putter.  It also scored well this year and the previous model as well last year in the MSG putter tests.
      Give this thing a look!!!!  I think I’m going to go roll some putts on my carpet!!!

      Hey all, 
      Anyone bought one of Vice's stand bags? The barrel of my bag is about to die, have been eyeing these off... But I hate buying something I haven't seen in the flesh (?) before. My favourite bag was from a gone bust company called Lind Golf, but can't find a bag with as many features. 
      Unfortunately not heaps of pictures of the Vice bag that aren't dolled up and taken from a romantic angle.
