What is ASD? Can I get that info on their site? I’d scroll back through the thread to see if it was there but figured I’d ask since you just mentioned it.

It's their Advanced Speed Development protocols, three different exercises you do once a week, starting week 20, to help you work on a specific deficiency in your swing. One is for lag, one is for sequencing, and the other is ground contact. They do have the videos on their website under Advanced Drills. They also have instructions on how to either have a professional diagnose your swing to determine which one to do, and they have methods to self diagnose.

For example, since rev and I were talking ASD 2 which is sequencing I'll self diagnose.

Go to the range with the radar and hit balls with your normal swing. Let's say you average 100 mph. Then hit balls using a half swing with the same effort and check your speed. If your speed isn't within 7 percent of your full swing, 93 mph in this example, then you'll want to do ASD 2.

Very interesting! I’ll give those a watch. I got 19 weeks to go before I have to worry about that I guess. Haha

Yep - one week at a time - you still have the joy of kneeling swings coming down the pike.:)

 

I just did my ASD workout - feels great - really fits what my teacher has me working on in my swing. I’m going to do another 6 weeks of it along with picking the level 4 protocols back up next week.

Have completed 9 weeks of the training and definitely seeing improved performance on the course and not just with the driver.

During my round yesterday I observed that I was 20+ yards past one of my golf buddies that I was previously 5-10 yards longer than. My ball is ending up equal too or past where I was hitting prior to the training even on swings that have less than. perfect impact. May have to rethink some clubs selections off the tee as I am running the ball through some fairways even in holes where I have already gone to less than driver.

Tried to use the GC Quad at headquarters to measure driver speed but they have them set for iron testing so when I tee the ball up, it is out of range and the ball isn’t picked up.

Wonder what would happen if I listened to the ball testing results and picked a better ball.

Thank you all.  This has been a great thread, and the participation level has been an inspiration. 

I chose not to purchase the sticks last year because I don’t have the indoor space for off season workouts. Well now that spring has sprung and I can work outside, I sprang for the sticks and radar, purchasing from my pro shop. The pros at my club are universally enthusiastic about Superspeed.  One added 12 mph on his driver SS last year, another added 9 mph.  I asked about ball striking and possible negative effects of practicing an “all out” swing, and they basically said the same thing that has been said here, that ball striking actually improves.

So far so good, entering my second week of the beginning protocol.  Some days are better than others, but I have a good feeling about this project. I played on Saturday, with week one in the books, and I was shocked at how comfortable I was with the driver. I had no trouble with tempo or wildness.  I wasn’t longer, but I was basically hitting my longest drives if that makes sense.  Another way to say it may be that I didn’t hit any short drives, they were all well struck.

i hope I stay healthy so I can get through these first six to twelve weeks. 8-12 mph would be pretty incredible. 

Thanks again for all the discussion, I would never have purchased these without reading through this thread.

That's great man, best of luck on the journey. You are gonna have some serious "light bulb" moments and excitement at times.

 

<---------I finally get to kick the kneeling swings to the curb (thanks heavens) and graduate on to Level 4 in two weeks. Looking forward to doing all standing swings again.

 

EDIT: In first sentence.........could also replace "journey" with "addition," b/c the training swing increases does become so, and self feeding

Thanks Trial&Error.

looking ahead, is there a better option for the kneeling swings than the stability pro pad?  Anyone try masonry knee pads?

Do you all find the radar to be accurate?Got my radar in today and swung my driver and it registered about 10 mph higher than my normal swing speed.

I find it to be fairly accurate and very consistent. I’ve read else where that it can be + or - 3%. If you have very active wrists I would imagine this could be more as it measures the fastest part. As long as you understand how each of the systems work you should be able to figure out what a comparable speed would be on a different LM.

I am just kneeling in the grass with no pad.   Good thing the year has been rainy making the ground softer

I didn't try any sort of knee pads, but I did pick up a kneeling pad at Lowe's early in the process. I think I paid $10 for it and it's definitely better than just placing my knees on the ground.@cnosil you're definitely a tougher man than I am.

Welcome aboard!  You will be pleased. 

I have real world results today. Dogleg left hole with a bunker on the left hand side with a 230 yard carry and the ball will trundle further down the hill towards the green. Go to the right and the ball just runs off into the rough unless you have a good slinging draw going on!  I have NEVER carried this bunker in 20 years of playing this golf course....until today!

Better option for price or quality? That stability pro is pretty good but it is pricey. It cushions the blow the retry well even at my age. :)

It is the price that’s galling. $50 for a styrofoam rectangle is a pretty bold ask.

I’ve still got a few weeks before I need to worry about that. But I’ll probably try a towel rolled up first.

If that doesn’t work I’ll steal some of the ABC floor tiles from my kids’ play room.

Only one more session left for me in week 2. No increases to right hand speed but all of my left hand speeds have increased. Almost even with my right hand speed now.

I have a few weeks to improvise something to kneel on. I’ll post my first two weeks results when I do the last session in a couple of days.  I’ll be playing Thursday and Saturday and I’m really hoping that the ball striking remains steady.

PM Bucky from this thread - he jury rigged a kneeling pad and it worked out great for him. I’m guessing he’s moved on to Cobra connect and not checking in here. :)

Here’s some more encouragement. I’ve been working on my clubs from 150-200 this week to prepare for my Ping test - except now they are from 165-220 thanks to SuperSpeed.

When I started last August the longest par 4 that I could reach in 2 was 410. Now I can cover 460. Most of the courses that I play have a par 5 or 2 between 460-480. All I need is a little breeze or a perfect strike and that’s in range now.

Both of these pictures were of shots hit (3 wood, 4 hybrid) with range balls. Add a couple of mph swing speed 5 mph ball speed and 6-8 more yards with my gamer ball.
