[mention]Bucky CC [/mention] any SuperSpeed C updates? I’m thinking about giving it a shot since
I typically feel like my hands and arms are along for the ride in my swing.

[mention]SuperSpeed Golf [/mention] any advice here... I’m almost done with “week 11” workouts and have noticed my max green speeds seem slow compared to my actual driver swings.



If I take a session of dry swings with driver making as good a “real” swing as I can I hit 108-111 with regularity. My top speeds with the green stick tend to be around 120. I feel like I should be swinging the green faster.

Is this within a normal range you guys see?
Is the SuperSpeed C club good to help someone with “dead hands” get a little more action? Or is it more suited to someone who already uses their hands actively?

Great zoom meeting today with all the testers, what a great kick off to this testing session. Only been a part of one other test session so far but the video session and q&a was awesome. Nice to put faces to names. So excited for mine to show up on Thursday.

Back on the old thread or maybe even one of the main site articles there was mention of swinging the driver at 80% of green speed so 114 driver speed could see 140ish on the green stick. I am currently seeing closer to 90%. Not that I’m complaining as the end result in the course is what matters. Just curious if there’s anything else I can do or should try.

(But that’s freaking awesome for a first session man!)

I can already tell this is going to be a good group to follow.

I saw the green stick go through some serious up and downs when I was heavily in to it over a year ago. For a time I really struggled and was actually swinging the blue faster then the green. Now with this second test group I've tried picking it back up more consistently. Lefty swing is actually faster then is used to be but righty still has some catching up to do(I'm a right handed golfer). Good luck to everyone just starting.

The off hand swings are crazy. I had one session last week where all of my peak lefty swings were faster than my peak righty swings.

I’ve had plenty of ups and downs with the training so far. But my actual driver swings have remained pretty consistent. It’s been said so many times but it really is true..
Some days I’m just slower than others lol




I love those days where you’re getting loose and can tell it’s going to be a fast swing day.

I'm glad to see you all getting your speed sticks and hearing about you starting out. The Zoom meetings are a great source of information plus, Daisy and Kyle are very helpful if you have any questions or concerns. 

It's crazy, but you'll definitely see days where one set of swings or one club will outperform the others. My fastest swing ever happened with the middle stick and it 3 mph faster than any light stick this go round. There are days that the non dominant swings are faster, I think that might have to do with feeling looser on that side and it's something I've tried to incorporate on the dominant side.

Those days really are the best when you feel that you can really push all your high numbers.

More of a video documentary of the entire process. Basically a video version of what will be happening in the thread. Some people are more visual and it might be useful to them.

I think it's a great idea. When I was looking at SuperSpeed before starting my routine, one of the first things I looked at was YouTube. There wasn't a lot of quality stuff out there for actual "real world" results. I felt like most videos didn't actually show results, or some started a series and never finished it.

I am planning on videoing my sessions , or some of them as i start out and progress. I was going to put them up on a YouTube channel and share the link in my reviews if anyone is interested.

For me the C stick was a marginal gain at best.  On the plus side that means the regular SuperSpeed sticks and my fitness program have been working great since I really focused on increasing club head speed these last two years.  On the negative side it means there are no easy gains left.  I think it's time to go into maintenance mode with CHS and look to save strokes elsewhere.

Speed is great, but there is much truth to also obviously working on the rest of the golf skills. While there is a statistically significant positive correlation between swing speed and earnings on the PGA Tour and a statistically significant negative correlation between swing speed and average score(see an analyses I ran below), we have seen golfers of all speeds win multiple at the highest levels.

Yes - the 80 percent is a starting point and where you are at before you do a protocol.  Right at the end of the protocol you will be faster with your own driver than you are normally.  Try it some time.  If you do your dry swings first - without the full dynamic warm up - you'll be at a significant slower speed than you will when you swing driver at the tail end of a protocol.  I've even tried doing a protocol and going out on the course - the speed lasts about 3 holes and I still am swinging faster than normal around 9 but then it's gone. The idea of course is to lock that faster speed in permanently - that's when the jumps occur.

The numbers that you showed would be similar to mine - just a tad faster but percentage wise similar to mine.  Everyone seems all over the place speed wise - I don't know if that's real or the radar doesn't quite pick some swings up right.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.
