Welcome @phatcatkev glad you found this thread useful. We are using the PRGR monitor which is recommended by Superspeed. I guess you could use the new SC300 which doesn't require a ball to capture swing speed. For $200, the PRGR seems to do the job. 

As to the search feature, it's a small box in the upper right  - adjacent to "Streams". I found it works pretty well, although some just use a google search. 

 

Thanks @tony@CIC! Is the PRGR tough to set up at all? I have used the radar in the past and it is so simple to just set down and go.

The only real setup is selecting which club you are swinging. I'm not sure if it defaults to driver or last used club since I've only used it for driver. It also works as a launch monitor and will give ball speed and carry distance when actually hitting a ball.

Hey everyone! I’m new to my golf spy and found this thread super helpful. 
 

I can’t seem to find a search function, so please just point me in the right direction if this is repetitive. 
 

What radar/monitor is the best for the super speed sticks? 
 

The new one has some awesome features but not sure if the normal radar works better. 

@phatcatkev welcome aboard! There are three options currently out there. The Swing Speed Radar by Sports Sensors which measures club head speed speed only, the PRGR Launch monitor which measures club head speed, ball speed, smash factor and total/carry distance, and the Swing Caddie SC 200 plus which measures swing speed, ball speed, smash factor and carry distance. You’ll find the PRGR and Swing Caddie more accurate if you want to use it while hitting a ball as well.

Since you put the PRGR behind you, does that make it more challenging to have to look back at it after each swing? 
 

Seems like the only benefit of the Sports Sensors one is that you can see its readings from address.

Interesting article that appeared in my Apple news feed this morning. 

https://golf.com/instruction/how-golfer-added-15-mph-clubhead-speed-6-months/

FYI I'll be happy with an 8-10 mph increase.

My coach literally just sent this over...made the choice to buy easy! 

 

 

Welcome BTW - we needed another Kev on this thread!

 

Loved the article.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Finished week 4 of the first protocol.  Finally saw that elusive 120 mph on a green swing, that was pretty cool.  Other good news is that the gyms in MA opened this past Monday, so I'm back on my M-W-F routine; once I get a few weeks there under my belt, hoping to see some gainzzZz.  Been out of sync the last two rounds, but when I have had decent contact, definitely getting more distance - on the Arccos, three drives 200+ each of the last two rounds, only one in the first 5 rounds of the year combined.  I'll never get up to anywhere near where some of you guy can hit it, but if I can get around 220-225 in the next year, I'll be pretty psyched.

I going to jump to level 2 on Monday, I did a sort of variation on level 1 for a couple of weeks before "formally" starting back up...besides, I miss the kneeling swings 😉

I have to admit that I’m doing better with the kneeling swings the second time around.

I eased into though - just green and feet together for blue and red until i felt ready then added blue and now red, too.

I'm struggling a bit and to say I'm plateaued is probably an understatement. 

t seen a speed increase on the dominant side - on the other hand (no pun intended), by non dominant swings have caught up and there's little difference in mph between the two. The kneeling swings  are getting better but still well behind. 

Overall I think the move to our new location along with the heat and humidity are taking a toll.

No doubt. I waited until 9 last night and was still drenched when I got done. Fortunately, looks like it will be cooler tomorrow.

Something I played around with today was my swing path. I was curious to see if a more out-to-in path (fade) would pick up better on the PRGR. I usually swing in-to-out.

Driver hit a high of 125mph (2nd fastest I’ve captured on PRGR).

Do most of my fellow testers hit a fade ball flight?

Haven't gotten to where I can purposely shape my ball flight yet, mainly pretty straight or a bit of a slice when I try to kill it although I'm getting better at controlling that urge.

End of the week wrap up video posted tomorrow, but I do feel like I’ve somewhat hit a small wall this week.

 

I’m overall seeing the green and blue sticks swing speed faster but the yellow I’ve topped out at 102mph.

 

As I stated last post I feel like I’ve surpassed my light shafts and today got my driver assessed and switched from diamana 60 reg to the Ventus red stiff. I hit 261 yards twice with the ventus out of 5 shots. I’ve never been over 255.

 

I’m excited for tomorrow morning to take the new driver out for its maiden voyage.

 

I’m going in Monday afternoon to get my irons re fit.

 

Personal best drive 262

New record with the green stick normal swing. Hit 140 and 141mph, a green step-change of 142mph, and blue step-change of 132mph.

 

Here’s the thing, I was aligned so far left it would be like a 8 or 9 for swing path on Foresight or Trackman. I feel like I’m only able to get high readings if I hit a huge cut path with the PRGR.  Furthermore, I literally got no sleep last night and did not feel "fast" today.

For club fitting purposes the best time would be when entering a plateau phase. This is often about 8 weeks in but varies per player. Then sometime after level 2 into Level 3.
Keep in mind that a ball fitting can help too although this is rarely done. 

Just finished level two! Glad I saw this cause I’m going to the fitter today to have some things adjusted. Is there any issue with taking a couple weeks off between protocols?
Also when would you start to incorporate the super speed c?
