Every time I try to get started on a Superspeed program, I get frustrated that the radar reads so low. Sometimes if I swing all out, it reads at like 70 mph. I have it on the golf setting and MPH. I believe that the device i receive is faulty, because its reading 30 mph lower than my actual swing speed. Tried to reach out to the company a long time back (way before any of the covid stuff was happening) and couldn't get a response. I think the radar is reading ok in terms of relative to itself. Should i just ignore that the radar reads so low and start the program?

I don’t think any of these Swing Speed radars are all that accurate compared to a Trackman. They do seem to be consistent with whatever speed they read however. I would just use 70 as your baseline and try to improve from there. Have you checked the batteries?

I changed the batteries and it remains the same.

It’s always relative - you are looking for relative gains. Throughout the testing I had two devices - they were always 3-5 mph apart in what they read but they also always trended up.

 

The ultimate test isn’t even your swing speed on the course - it’s how far, how consistently and how accurately you’re hitting it, on the course. That’s the goal, to improve there.

 

Most of us have experienced variances in speed from measuring device to measuring device.

 

So go for it and don’t worry about the numbers, just the increases

Green stick, RH, step change - I’m definitely going through a jump and I’m starting to see it on the course. :)

My top speed the first time around was 122 - I’m moving towards that much quicker this time. Of note I’ve moved into level 2 but am only doing twice a week and have not increased the reps from 3 to 4. I’m also resting longer between swings.

Sun finally poked through in Bellingham after a long week of clouds and cold rain.

Not mad with the first dry swings with the new driver!

Set another record with the SuperSpeed C club today.  Now if only I could find a golf course or driving range that was actually open.  A private course in north-west Wisconsin recently said they would allow members to play so it will be interesting to see if the governor shuts them down or opens things up for other places around the state.

Dang man a 6 mph jump. It really must be making a difference.

When you swing 16 gazillion mph 6 mph is nothing. :)

Something about my radar measuring at 70 mph max just continues to frustrate me even though I know I am swinging much faster than that.

That is weird - will it register other speeds?

Yeah, got it up to 80 mph today by playing around with the positioning. But that was about as high as i could get it to go. Got frustrated and ordered the new speed radar that superspeed golf is selling. They were nice enough to give me a discount even though i didnt purchase the swingspeed radar from them. They thing its faulty.

I think that goes to show how good the SuperSpeed customer service is, and I'm glad to hear they gave you a discount on the PRGR. I'd like to hear some feedback on it after you've given it a go.

I just started week 6 after starting back quite a while ago. Some weeks I've only gotten one session in due to the rain we were getting, I count those as maintenance weeks. I'm curious to see what effect they'll have on gains and if it'll be better or worse than when I originally started training.

Hopefully you'll start seeing numbers that encourage you. This training is legit, but can be frustrating at times.

Is anyone doing the blue stick only protocol on here? I tried searching the thread but I don't think i used the right search terms.

[mention]dlow206 [/mention] I haven’t heard of that one. What are you supposed to do with just the blue?

It would seem to go against their methodology to leave out the other sticks, but maybe if it was something you rotated in once a week or something like their ground force or lag drills.

I used it for a couple of weeks.  I thought that if it showed promising results, I would post here.  Like @revkev I wasn't impressed.  I think SuperSpeed Golf has it right.  Someone was just trying to shortcut the protocol.  I suppose it could work for certain individuals, but I'm not a candidate.

I am just starting up the program, and am going to try blue only and see how it goes. The blue stick only is the rage on GolfWRX right now, seems like some folks are seeing success.
