Tour Striker Planemate


Recommended Posts

Wanted to give a quick update on my progress

The Planemate has become part of every warm up routine.  Whether I'm just out at the range for the day, or getting ready for a round.  I've modified the warm up protocol just a bit from what is suggested to fit me a bit more.  The protocol has you doing 5 shots with the Planemate, followed by 5 shots without.  I've been hitting a minimum of 5 with the Planemate, but don't switch to swinging without it until feel my swing and rhythm feel right.

I've also started venturing out more into the "Advanced Protocols."  The most recent one has been greenside bunkers.  It has you using the short band, but really focusing on standing the shaft up quickly in the backswing.  I was able to find a good practice bunker and hit some of the best shots I've ever hit out of it.  Normally, I'll get lucky and get a few good ones, but this was repeatable!  

Hands down, this is the best training aid I've ever used!

I just did my first session of the day 5 protocol, resist, relax, and rotate. This is the meat and potatoes of what the Planemate is all about. You keep the resistance in the band going to halfway and continue to hold the resistance through until you reach the top of the swing. You then relax the hands which are then shallowed by the band. Then you rotate the body through the shot. 

This is the one routine I'm going to spend a lot of time with in order to get the feeling down. I know this is touted as a seven day program, but as someone who works in auto manufacturing, I understand the value of repetition when learning something new. I want this to become second nature and not something I have to think about when swinging a club. 

I tried hitting some balls and initially found myself letting my arms overtake my body, leading to some pretty bad results. Once I started trying to collect the ball with the club, it started getting better. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and I can continue to go outside and practice or I'm going to have to move things around on the carport to make room to swing.

Not having insight into the rest of the protocols beyond the 7-days, what's everyone's assessment of the utility of Planemate as an indoor offseason training aid?

I'm stationed in Omaha, which means winter and cold temperatures...my ceiling is tall enough in the basement to hit wiffle/practice balls with a short iron, I just (obviously) wouldn't have any ball flight to actually observe. In your opinion does Planemate have value for an offseason of basement training?

A lot of the focus is on body movement, so it can be done indoors.  I did all 7 protocols in my own house while I was working through them.  That being said, I feel it has always been beneficial to check things by hitting actual balls.  At least into a simulator so you can get some idea of the ball flight.  I thought I was working through everything perfectly, but when I went to the range for the first time, I had a pretty good slice.  I was able to work back through the protocols to figure it out, but I wouldn't have been able to do it without seeing some sort of ball flight.

New member here.  But I have been rocking the Planemate for the past month.  Not as fastidiously as Goalie Mike!  But I've been using it on the range before my rounds just for 20 practice swings and about 10 balls hit with the Planemate.  Mostly the Day 5 protocol of "stress, stress, relax" is what I go through.  Helps bring on the ghost arms but really to get the feel of rotating my hips to a finish position.  Getting that feel helps put my swing into shape for the round.

I'm not sure I'm a 17 handicap, but that's what the Grint tells me I have.  Anyway, I typically shoot low 90s from regular men's tee or the tips.  Hit drives fairly straight, averaging 265 yds.  Since using the Planemate I've scored about 4 rounds in the 80s, as low as 82.  My swing has improved for sure, but I've also improved dramatically with my short irons.  To which I also owe a lot to Martin Chuck himself.   His youtube videos work for me.  Also my new Mizzies really let me aim at the pin from 170 yds and closer.

So I pulled the trigger and got a Planemate, and have now completed the 7-day protocol.  However, I had a very interesting first round since using it.  I hit balls on the range and I was striping it...I was convinced I was in line for a great round.  I then went out and shot the worst round of the season.  My putter was largely to blame for that, but my ball-striking was pretty awful.

Those of you with experience with the Planemate:  have you found it beneficial to try and replicate the feels of the Planemate while you're playing, or trust that the Planemate effect is slowly impactin your swing and just play?

I know in a way this is a stupid question; for most trying to play "golf-swing" is a bad idea.  I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else struggled the first time out...?

Has taken me a couple months but has really helped by pitching game and shorter irons for sure.. My driver miss is now a hook which is better than my slice since i can play to the right edge of the fairway and be mostly fine.  i have lost distance on my mid and longer clubs from using this and fixing other swing faults. Hopefully i can gain a little of that back and gain consistency. The biggest thing i have found is, i need to stop trying to guide my swing and trust my motions instead. I think that is where the planemate will shine in terms of building muscle memory. This offseason will be huge since i plan to do the red band protocol in hopes to have all that muscle memory. Hope that helped.

 

My question to others, has anyone used this with the speedtrap 2.0 to just enforce swing plane and club head path? they seem like they may pair well together

So I can comment and say after my initial enthusiasm, I've not really touched it for the past six weeks. I'm definitely going to work with it in the off-season, however.

I played really good golf after getting the PlaneMate, but I think a lot of my struggles for the past few weeks were the result of playing golf swing after getting it. I was finding myself too obsessed with certain pieces of the swing instead of just being athletic and letting it rip.

So much of my downswing success hinges on things like grip and alignment so those things can be worked on without the PM.

I do think my chipping got immediately better, however, and it's possibly worth it just for that. I found it really helped me to properly rotate through the chip using my entire body. I otherwise had a habit of doing everything with my arms only and stabbing at the ball, which led to all sorts of poor strikes while chipping.

Not specific to the Planemate, but I have the same issue of focusing too much on "golf swing" when I watch too many videos and try to implement what I see. I am in the same boat regarding setup. If my grip, alignment, and other elements are proper, then usually good things happen. But I find my setup starts to get faulty and sloppy at times.

Thanks, you’re kind of confirming what I suspected.  I am going to crank through the initial 7-day protocol again this week to really bake it in, but when I play Friday and Sunday just try to play golf and hope some fundamental improvement comes through.

Thanks again.

One of my best rounds of the year was a day or two after I spent about an hour just rehearsing days 1-3 in my basement hitting wiffles into some cushions. It was only after I tried to move further along in the days that I really struggled.

Due to COVID I wasn't able to work with full swings on the range, I do think that would have helped. I just don't have a good space at home to do that.

You’re describing my entire practice routine.  Up until my Planemate purchase it’s almost always dry GOLFTEC drills in the basement.  Now I’m doing that, plus Planemate protocols with wiffle balls in the basement.  (And SuperSpeed MWF morning but who’s counting...)

I get to the range when I can, but full-time job, three little kids...

I think the 5th day (resist, resist, relax) is the most important lesson to run through for warm ups before a round.  That "relax" move is the key for my swing, and I'm figuring it out on the course.  When the "relax" move is made, that's when I'm planting both feet for my rotation and  getting my lead wrist ready to roll into what I call the "Snap Impact" position so that my clubface will be square.  And actually my first practice hit on the range without the planemate usually results in a yank/hook.  But now my body is integrating that muscle memory better, and my game has been improving, but it hasn't been a linear progression for me - just that the general trend is that my scores are getting lower (I've been using the planemate for almost 2 months now).  My best rounds used to be  93-96, but now I have 8 rounds in the 80s over the past two weeks.

Well despite my concerns, I am confident it's going to help me improve.  I really was striping it on the range, and my usual pull was gone.  I just need to get out of my own head once I get to the first tee...

I'll continue to post feedback as I use it.  @edingcis probably taking the smarter approach and waiting until the offseason to go all in on it.  In my case, not many would accuse me of being smart...  🤣

Well I took the plunge. Planemate came in today. Definitely need to watch the set up video a little closer before going after day 1 again. Holy ghost hands though that feeling is crazy. Not sure how folks say they do it prior to a round as a warmup I felt silly trying to swing.

New here.  Actually found this thread while searching for Planemate Reviews.  I ordered mine yesterday and just got notified that I should have it on Friday.  Now I need to get a net and mat ordered so I can hit some balls in my garage.  The plan is that over the winter months in North Dakota I will work heavily with this Planemate.  Looking to get a Mevo+ and have a simulator in my garage that I can take down and move around, move it outside in the summer, etc.  

Thank you everyone that has taken the time to review this product.  I am looking forward to getting started.

Strapped the Planemate on with the longer green band today for the first time since July. When I first tried the longer band in July, I really struggled and couldn't figure out why. Not wanting to really mess up my golf swing in season, I stopped using the Planemate until this past week.

Much better results with the PM today. One of the changes I've been working on with my swing coach is getting the hand path less in-to-out. For me, the feeling is that the hands chop down left and beat my body during the downswing. When I execute this feeling correctly, I no longer have issues with the band going under my hands. 

I'll have to keep messing around with it some this winter. I really do enjoy the short green band for takeaway and following through work in my basement.

Strapped the Planemate on with the longer green band today for the first time since July. When I first tried the longer band in July, I really struggled and couldn't figure out why. Not wanting to really mess up my golf swing in season, I stopped using the Planemate until this past week.

Much better results with the PM today. One of the changes I've been working on with my swing coach is getting the hand path less in-to-out. For me, the feeling is that the hands chop down left and beat my body during the downswing. When I execute this feeling correctly, I no longer have issues with the band going under my hands. 

I'll have to keep messing around with it some this winter. I really do enjoy the short green band for takeaway and following through work in my basement.

 

What's your understanding of their prescription for when to use the red band?

I've glanced through the videos and see the red band being used/recommended for offseason strength building.  I've been cycling through the advanced protocols with the long green band for several weeks now and I'm wondering if it would be to my benefit to migrate to the red band.  But, I've also seen precautionary statements on the site stating that the red is only intended for more advanced players, which I certainly am not!

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 🤣.
