I preordered my TS Planemate last December and finally got it this week. I’ve been going through the daily protocols and really think this has the potential to help a lot of golfers. I wanted to start a thread to discuss for those who have one and for those who may be on the fence!

Looking forward to your thoughts. Mine arrived earlier today. I got the email from them with the 7 day protocol last night. I agree the potential is there for this to be very helpful especially for those who don’t want to spend the money and/or time taking lessons and practicing the drills, etc from the lessons. 

Watching the videos this should help the issue I have of hips stalling and using my athletic abilities to hit the ball somewhat good when timing is on and not have to worry if I’m bringing a good swing that day or not

Most of Tour Striker training aids are pretty good.  Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this as you progress with it.

I haven’t heard how it’s supposed to work. I know there are bands that attach to a belt and the club, but other than that, I have no idea what it’s supposed to do.

The protocol videos will give you a good idea of what it’s trying to accomplish!

I've used a lot of training aids and I've got to say, this is easily the best one I've tried in terms of the ingraining certain swing feelings. For me, getting on plane and not muscling the ball have been my biggest challenges and I've been working on both the last two years with minimal success. So far I've worked through the daily protocols so the next step is to take the Planemate shot to the range so I'm excited to see how it all translates. Kitchen swings are one thing, but range/course swings are an entirely different story! I'm going to keep using it to ingrain those feels and I'm thinking it's going to make a difference long term!

Very interested in this product, and will be following this thread to hear everyone's feedback. I am generally a bit skeptical of most training aids, but this looks like it has the potential to be something special. I'll also add that my Tour Striker 7 iron is the real deal.

Looks interesting, but says it's in pre-order.  Where have you gotten yours from?

 

They sold out of the first two pre-order batches and are working on the next one as stated on their site. The next shipment of pre-orders is sept 20

Nice, glad it's helping! I get some Revolution Golf emails and saw Martin and his partner introduce and explain this; I was curious at first as it looked like something I could jury-rig in the garage quickly .. but definitely interested to follow your progress with it.

Are you satisfied that it's giving you adequate feedback that you are able to use it effectively, eg. without the guidance/ corrections of a teaching pro..?

I’ve primarily used it for my daily swings in the house and it definitely helps you get the correct feelings. I tried it on the range once, but didn’t have very good results. I’ll be giving it another go soon though because I think I had the band set too tight. With consistent use over time I think it will make a difference!

I was expecting a cost of around $100.  $162 is steep!

Same here. I’ll wait until a few are on eBay next year.

Yeah I preordered mine so it was $80. The price increased about 2 months before it was shipped.

I heard great things about this especially to help shallow your swing and forces you to get steep at the top.  I’m getting one for sure. I spent some time on a robot recently and it really helped but the robot is 90 miles away.

Pretty sure he's talking about one of that swing simulators you can get one that simulates pro swing patterns. I know they had one at Pebble Beach when I lived in Monterey, but I never got a chance to check it out.

I haven’t been on one but there is one in my town. Watched it in use and it’s pretty amazing. Seems like it would take numerous sessions to get anything engrained though.
