I struggle with crossing the line at the top of my back swing and am wondering if the plane mate can help with this. Any feedback would be appreciated. 

Depending on what you do in transition across the line isn’t always a bad thing. GG has students who cross the line but shallow and rotate well to hit the ball really well.

the planemate help keep you on the line or short of it. Watch the protocols for 5-7 to see

I see that these are sold out on Tour Strikers web site. I checked E Bay to see if anyone was dumping their used planemate. There is one on there and it is already at $250 bid. Gulp!  I should have bought ten of these and resold nine of them at a profit to pay for the one I would keep for myself.....and probably have some golfing money left over. 🤑

I just watched all the videos on their site. Is it just me that cannot see how this is a big benefit to golfers?

I noted in one part he actually hit the short shot slightly fat.

I dont see anyone (in this country) rocking up to the range with this 'girdle' on 🙄

Lol. You are right. No way I would wear this thing in front of people. I would use it on my home net. Much the same as I have never seen someone wear a Swing Jacket. I do think this device has two useful features. I think it stops the inside takeaway...and I think it helps people feel the “Magic Move” of the transition.  However I have not used this device so I could be way off. I was intrigued about it by all the positive praise it has been receiving.....it must be worthwhile at some level.

The fat shot is one of the reasons they recommend using a tee right. The tee takes away the concern about the ground interaction and the strike and focus is put in making the correct move. 
 

yes it’s probably only you that can’t see the benefit to golfers. Go on Instagram and look at David woods page or search on #planemate to see the various golfers using it and the change it’s made in their swing. Also note Darren Clarke has been using it and loves it and what it does. Rory is using and Matt Kuchar has been using it for awhile. several instructors I’ve seen using it one being Dan Carraher who has professional and high level amateurs in his stable.

You would be surprised the number of people who do wear this at the range. I’ve taken it to the range when I first got it an had no issues wearing there or worrying about what anyone around me thought. Was there for about an hour working thru protocols 1-4.

I have had mine for about a month, and have mixed feelings about it. For pitches and short wedge shots, I love it. It really forces you to rotate correctly. I was pretty excited after going through the first 4 or 5 protocols. Unfortunately, once I progressed to trying to make a full swing, I didn't find it helpful at all. It seems pretty much impossible for me to make solid contact swinging full speed with it attached. My scores actually started going up after using the Planemate. I'm sure it's not the fault of the training aid, but the fault of my bad swing. I tend to swing all of my clubs long...to parallel like the driver...and it makes it difficult with the band attached. 

My next purchase was a Smart Ball a couple of weeks ago. Now THAT really helped my game a lot by helping me to swing a little shorter, more compact, and in sync. I used the Smart Ball for 2 days, then shot my best round of the season (a 76). Maybe I'll get the Planemate back out and try it with the Smart Ball.

Hi all

I saw this aid and thought wow the answer to all my faults. Then calmed down. Im a massive slider in the down swing. For those that have tried it would it help me turn not slide?

It’s going to help pretty much every swing fault. When one slides they tend to have to lean away from the target and have to flip, early extend and other things to get the club to the ball. If you don’t pivot right with this the band will let you know

I pre ordered one as well.  Just went to my instructor again and I still roll the club to the inside on the takeaway despite trying not to for the past two months. Everyone talks about how this fault disappears in a very short period of time. We shall see.

Interesting. One of my (many) faults also, so curious to hear your experience with it as you start using it!

I will update once I have it in my grubby little fingers. I tried the cone drill but all that did was cause me to over exaggerate and my hands and arms drifted too far away in the backswing. This rolling problem causes my main miss so it needs to go. I fully believe that most swing faults are caused by an improper backswing, and I think that is why David Leadbetter (like him or hate him he is controversial to some) said that most golfers would do better setting up in a completed backswing position over the ball and just hitting it from that position.

I believe many PGA instructors .. and also Jack Nicklaus .. also agree with that view.

If i know for 100% that something would actually help me improve. I would not care what I looked like on the range while implementing.

I do not know that this works. I was commenting that if something did work. No matter how ridiculous it looked in use in a public setting. I would still use it.

 

i have no idea if this particular contraption helps or not.
