Kenny,
How are you feeling about the senior set now? I know that the set you got doesn't have a stick that weighs more than your driver. Do you think you would have seen similar results with the men's set, or do you feel you benefited more from the set you got?

I suppose that given the swing speed I had when we began, the Senior Set was probably appropriate.  I was concerned about not having a heavier club than my driver.  After Protocol 1, I think it might have helped get my swing speed up initially.

However, I really don't see much difference between the Yellow club and the Green club anymore, and the Blue club is also becoming closer in swing speed to the Yellow and Green.  We have just started Protocol 2, and I am wondering if I will not see any more increases if all clubs are giving me about the same speeds.  What's the point of swinging 3 clubs that all feel the same?  Yesterday was my first session  with Protocol 2; take a look at the numbers.

All of the numbers are down a little bit, but it was cold yesterday; a little above freezing.  The left handed swings were down the most.  But, compare the numbers between clubs.  I say they are virtually the same.  I really can't tell any difference in feel between the Yellow and Green clubs.  Not having a SuperSpeed club that is heavier than my driver may be a reason why I have struggled the past few weeks with controlling my driver swing.  I just don't know.

Reflecting back on something that Jon Britton wrote it does make sense in theory. But what a feel right now is that I can swing as hard as I want with driver and be in control - once I find the slot - I need to warm up to find it though.

I bet that is a good feeling

Have you considered doing a "step-change" swing with your driver on the tee box immediately before addressing the ball to get that feeling of swinging through clean in the mind? 
I do that occasionally when I feel I'm focusing on the ball too much. 
I tried a step-change drive out of frustration! Worst slice of the range session! Haha! I will have to try doing some step change practice swings next time I'm on the range and see if it helps any... I'll get it figured out one of these days... I hope!

Here's Kirke (age 5) taking a cut on the radar. I'm planning to build him his own set of SuperSpeed sticks for Christmas (don't tell him) based on his driver specs.

This swing is with his hybrid, and he clocked in at 44mph. He touched 48 with his driver.

Kirke has a great start to a wonderful swing. He'll love the speed sticks.

Young potential PGA champion in training??

 

BTW is he hitting off of your new putting green?

That's why the little chipping mat is laying on top of the green: so that errant swings won't leave scars in my green :-)

Figured as much - especially with the launch monitor tucked away in one of the holes.

Nice swing Kirke!

SuperSpeed Golf tells us when using the training clubs to position the radar directly in front and facing us.  Not sure it would make any difference with training clubs, as long as positioning was consistent.

If we are hitting balls, the radar should be a foot further away from us than the ball, two inches to the right (away from the target), and angled slightly to the right so you catch the driver speed before ball impact.  Maybe it's the angle of the camera, but it looks like the radar is forward of where a ball would be.  If you hit a ball, the radar would pick up ball speed.

Thanks for the info! For my own training, I had been "in front of me, angled back" position. I haven't used the swing speed radar while hitting balls at all yet (and Kirke wasn't hitting anything either).

Has anyone compared readings between different radar positions?

I am always worrying about hitting the radar unit. If the radar was forward of the ball, I know I could shank or toe a ball into it.  For the training clubs the radar is always facing directly at me for consistency.  There may be a slight difference between facing forward and angled back that may be due to having an early or late release, but I haven't tested it.  I haven't tried any other position except when hitting balls with the driver when the unit is angled back..  

I remember that @revkev measured a few mph faster with the radar than his SC200.  I was just the opposite.

@mpatrickriley and Kenny - it's odd that Kenny would be faster on SC than the radar as Superspeed has said that you should expect you will be a bit quicker on radar than other tracking devices.  However we are each different beyond a doubt.

I've found that positioning matters in regards to swing speed so I try to be as consistent as possible with the radar in the middle facing me when using the sticks and 6 inches to a foot outside the tee but angled back when hitting drives.  At first I was afraid of hitting the radar but I'm not anymore (which probably means I'm in the danger zone there.)  I'm very afraid of hitting it while doing the kneeling swings because my swing is flatter there.  I've had to move farther away from the ball for those.

Okay week one of Superspeed’s new level 2 is in the books for me.

This level adds 3 kneeling swings dominant and non-dominant with all three sticks into the mix.

First the results:

RH Green 111 Blue 106 Red 103
LH Green 105 Blue 100 Red 92

Some commentary: I really slowed down the first day after the kneeling swings. Daisy from Superspeed told me that was normal and suggested resting a bit (a minute or so) between kneeling swings and step changes. It helped some but my steps were down all week never the less. Overall though my top speeds for the week were good and my fastest swing today was my second to last one.

One last observation. It’s our first cool day of the fall - 64 right now. This is the first time that I’ve done a workout when it hasn’t been in the 80’s or higher. My SS was off today until the end when my last 3 were 110, 111, 109.

Week 7 has been completed for me as well.  The kneeling swings were a little awkward but started to feel more natural as the week progressed.  I've messed around doing a kneeling swing in the past (thanks YouTube trick shot videos), but never going for max mph.

I started off the week trying to fold up a towel to put beneath my knees for the kneeling swings, but that didn't feel great on my concrete basement floor.  $10 later I had a nice 1.5" thick garden kneeling pad that worked out much better.

Overall my training club numbers have been pretty much the same for the last 3 weeks.

I had a conversation with Daisy at SuperSpeed Golf this week.  At the end of Protocol Level 1 my driver swing speed was up 93 mph.  Apparently, the overspeed training with the light clubs has worked to get my speed up.  However, the speeds for the Yellow light club and Green middle club have been nearly identical for the past several weeks.  

Daisy said that since my driver speed is 93 mph, I should be in the Men's set, so they are sending me a Red club.  That club will be the first club that is heavier than my driver.  So, maybe next week I will be swinging Green, Blue and Red clubs.  Guess I will have to "Man-Up" now!!

Just bought a set of these for my dad for the holidays. 

These SS Sticks increase your swing speed---pretty non debatable. 

They are a great workout, regardless of golf. 

And they are great for your golf swing. 

So thrilled I bought these for myself, cant wait to give them to pops.

I just finished my first week of the Level 2 Protocol.  50º and sunny today.

Highlights:

  1. Hit 101 mph for first time over 100 mph with my heaviest Blue club!!
  2. The middle Green club was 105 mph;  2 mph faster than my lightest Yellow club.
  3. I'm between 81-86 mph with all clubs swinging from my knees with the fastest swing recorded with the middle Green club... left-handed!!  Go figure.

On to week 2... might be interesting with the Thanksgiving travel days coming up.

Guys, I hope you don't mind too much my crashing your thread. I think it makes for an interesting comparison, putting the real program against the homebrew version. Already, we've noted one of the bigger liabilities of the DIY approach: a lack of product support. I also think it will be useful to contrast the new protocol against that which is publicly available.

I'm still a few weeks behind you guys; I'm planning to do one more week of the "introductory" protocol, and then I'll move to Level One, the one that also incorporates the kneeling swings.

Here are my summarized numbers through Week 3:

I have gotten the impression at times that on the official protocol, you're mostly tracking your highest speed. My chart is the averages of just my right-handed, normal (no step-through) swings.

So far, I'm really pleased. Each week, my speeds have increased. As someone noted earlier in this thread, I have a bit of bunching at times between the sticks at different weights. For instance, this week my green and blue were the same. I think, in this case, it has to do with the fact that my first swings in a session aren't my best. By the time I get to the second set, I'm a little looser, and I'm also feeling a better sequence.

Anyway, I'm seeing steady progress so far in every category in every week. I anticipate that's it'll level off, and then I have to grit my teeth and push through more.
