Tour Striker Planemate

The videos seem to show the bands as a workout tool mostly. I doubt I'll switch to them, as right now I have enough trouble standing up the shaft with the green band 🤣.

Right, that's why I think I'll stay with the green too.  It's not so much the trouble standing it up as much as fear that the red band would "win" too much and inadvertently teach you some bad positions.

Ive used the red band, and like you said, i moved back to the green to not learn any thing bad. To me, the red would be useful for the pivot and the takeaway but that is it. It really does pull at the top, so much so that when you relax, you become way too flat. 

I also use a impromptu impact back with the PM and it feels awesome. I hope i see some course benefit with it.

Posted in my breaking 100 story but realized I can do fast driver swings with the Planemate on as part of my goal to increase my SS and still keep good form. Hopefully I can make the planemate work for me in this sense.

So I skimmed through this thread as I'm considering the Planemate, after hearing so much positive about it. 

 @edingc @goaliewales14  @rbsiedsc @sirchunksalot @Getoffmylawn  

Question for you guys.

1) Would you buy it again

2) Are you still using it 

3) Do you feel it has helped you or not so much

4) What's the one thing you'd advise someone on before taking the plunge.

Thanks for all your great comments in here.

Thanks for all your great comments in here. 

I’ll start

1) i 70/30 would buy it (this was gifted to me for my birthday). I like the concept of it and works well. Price is just a little steep for resistance bands and a belt (although thinking about it, it’s the price of a few lessons that you can work all the time with so really not terrible). The smart ball might be a better investment or may pair well with it. 
 

2/3) I am still using it and love it. My swing was a mess prior to using it and has drastically improved. It gives you the proper feels you need. I can also practice in my house without a ball or in the park with whiffles and still get feedback. 
 

4) make sure this addresses and issue you have, it likely does as it helps with takeaway, top of swing, shallowing the downswing and the pivot. Also a huge help with pitching and can be used to help chipping and bunker play. 

side note: Because I am strong, I do notice I can overpower the bands, so take things slow. do the short band protocol for a few weeks ( I rushed to full swings after rushing the protocols and that set me back).  also tape yourself or use a mirror as I found myself still swaying with it. 
 

good luck if you take the plunge! It really is one of the best aids out there and I have tried many.

Thanks for all your great comments in here. 

1)  Yes, absolutely

2)  Yes, still using it.  In fact, I wish I was using it more.  Sometimes I can't get to it because...life, but in a perfect world I would go through a couple protocols daily.  

3)  It has definitely helped me.  If you're researching this, then you should be able to find the 7-day protocol on their web site with the short green band.  (The other protocols become accessible once you buy it and register your purchase.)  The first protocol really trains a proper takeaway, which was very beneficial to me because I tend to whip it inside too early.  Another protocol (fourth I think) has you resisting the band at the top of your backswing, another one invaluable to me in terms of generating a lot more width in the backswing.  How it specifically helps you depends on your own swing faults I suppose, but I'm convinced it's helped me.

4)  I know you said one thing, but...a) don't jump in full bore, follow the protocols exactly as prescribed.  b) Don't use it to the point of fatigue.  Many of the protocols require you to resist the band...if you start losing the battle with the band because you're fatigued I think you risk teaching yourself some bad habits.

Thank You both, that's great info and exactly what I was looking for. 

Hayes, I have watched the "free" protocols on the youtube channel. I found them very interesting and seemingly easy to follow...for me and that's saying something! 

RB, Yeah, I hear you on the price.  But I think I've spent more for less on this stupid game...ha

Thanks for all your great comments in here. 

1) I'm probably closer to 50/50. Like @rbsiedsc mentioned, I think I could get similar benefit (for my particular game/swing flaws) from the smart ball.

2) Occasionally. Mostly for practicing my takeaway. Combination of Planemate and mindful practice has pretty much eliminated the inside roll takeaway that I had previously. Probably worth the price of admission right there!

3) As I alluded to in No. 2, my takeaway has gotten a ton better through consistent practice and Planemate usage. My instructor always remarks how incredibly better my takeaway got in such a short time period. I think if I used it more often I would get some benefit from fuller swings as well. (Unfortunately, I'm limited by ceiling height in my basement, so takeaway work is the easiest for me to do without needing to empty the garage and deal with the cold.)

4) I think the Planemate is a great training aid for two types of people: 

  • Those who have never swung a golf club before and have no "bad habits" or preconceived notions about the swing.
  • Those who have a pretty good grasp of what their swing faults are and can "self-coach" a bit. 

I know you fall into the second group @Golfspy_CG2.

The reason I believe this particularly point is because of my own self-reflection. When I started using the Planemate in July, I had really good results with the early protocols but absolutely bombed out when trying to move to the full-swing band. I know now why that happened (my concept of the backswing turn, left side bend and weight shift), but I really didn't figure this out until very recently. I've tried a few of the full swing drills since making this "discovery" and they turned out much better.

Thanks for all your great comments in here. 

1) 100% would buy it again!  Definitely one of the best purchases I've made for my game.  

2) I actually use it before every round on the range when I warm up.  I only take a few swings with it on, but I want to make sure I have the feel before I start the round.

3) It's helped so much, especially in my short game.  My lowest score before using it was an 85 and I really struggled to be consistently around that mark afterwards.  As soon as I started using it, I shot an 80.  I'm consistently down around mid-high 80's now.  I actually shot +1 in a 9 hole tournament to get 2nd!!

4) I would make sure you have time go through the protocols completely.  Do not skip around or do a bunch at once.  Do one protocol and then take it to the range to practice and get reps in.  I also wouldn't use it with the driver until you do the advanced protocols.  I got messed up by doing that and it wasn't until the advanced protocols that I was able to get it back.

Yes, I overlooked this point in my comments, but that was one area that benefited from the PM a lot. I had kind of forgotten how much better my short game got but it was night/day difference after using the PM. Lot less handsy and way more consistent.

I have enough space in my backyard to hit a 40 yard pitch shot, so that was my "practice shot" during the protocols.  I was in a few outings where they asked of a lay-up yardage and I begged for 40 yards.  They thought I was crazy until I stuffed them to 2 inches each time.  I'm just able to turn through shots in my short game so much better!  I'm still trying to work through using it in the bunker, so I'm not sure about that yet.

Revisiting the PM, did the full swing drill today trying to focus getting steep then relaxing down as I am more a one plane, OTT type still (just slightly now). Feels odd but I think this is right. My biggest thing is making sure I have the proper hand position to start.

@Golfspy_CG2, look at my video i just posted, even with doing protocols a whole, you can still see the band wiggling. this will definitely help the muscles needed and hopefully keep the feels you want

So I skimmed through this thread as I'm considering the Planemate, after hearing so much positive about it. 

 @edingc @goaliewales14  @rbsiedsc @sirchunksalot @Getoffmylawn  

Question for you guys.

1) Would you buy it again

2) Are you still using it 

3) Do you feel it has helped you or not so much

4) What's the one thing you'd advise someone on before taking the plunge.

Thanks for all your great comments in here. 

Sorry for the late reply, I was at work and break time is at a premium there especially with the new break area we use to keep separated from other lines with the Covid protocols in place.

1. Yes, I would buy it again, it's really been beneficial for me especially in helping rid myself of the inside takeaway. 

2. I haven't used it in a couple of months. After going back to work from furlough I was dealing with pain in my feet from having to readjust to standing on concrete for 10 hours a day.

3. Even though I haven't used it in a while, I'm still reaping benefits from what I learned using it. I'm focusing now on getting into the slot with driver and the results are looking good. Having used the Planemate I'm more aware of how to manipulate the club so I'm swinging it from the inside. It's also helped me become more mindful to not use my arms as much and rotate in the swing better.

4. I'm going to agree with @rbsiedsc on making sure it's going to help with a problem you currently have. If you are not rotating properly or have issues with your takeaway coming too far inside, it'll definitely help.

I'm planning on going back at it as soon as we go on our Winter Shutdown in a week and a half and I can't wait to strap it on again.

Ha. No worries.  
 

Thanks for the reply.  It definitely sounds like it will help the issues i have, which in no particular order are. 
 

Too inside on the takeaway

Not enough depth in the backswing

Not coming from the inside on the downswing.

Not Staying in posture on the downswing

Not getting to the leftside in my downswing

Other than that, my swing is pretty damn solid 😂

Sounds a lot like some of the stuff I deal with. I think you'll enjoy the Planemate!
