@MaxEntropy it’s definitely not easy at the start of the sprint protocol! Has it gotten any better since the first session? 
It’s not necessarily to do the driver swings before and after on the ASD protocols since they are working on something a little different. Would be good to compare the start video face on and then see how it changes though. 

I did my second session of ASD 3 last night. Overall, my balance was a little better, but still a little tricky to quickly get reset and swing. I forgot to record the swings, so I'll do it next week.

I’ll be posting my official review sometime next week most likely. I broke my left foot pinky toe so I’ll be down for another 4-6 weeks. Come on 2021, you can’t get here fast enough! 🤣

After a few weeks of ‘mostly’ following a 3 day per week training session, I am seeing a consistent 116mph with driver.  Still getting odd numbers with the training sticks.

116 Driver

111 3 Wood

106 2 Hybrid

103 3 iron

 

Friday outing planned to see what this does on the course.

Since I am "done" for the purposes of the review, I decided to play around with the radar positioning the last few weeks - I didn't want to potentially mess with the "official" results but I learned a few interesting things: due to my deck layout, I have to swing in the same spot both RH and LH and I was moving the radar between every set. I can leave the radar in place and swing at it left-handed. I had found that there seem to be more flaky numbers doing that (how much is due to my crappy LH swing being on the wrong path?), but tonight I stood further away from it (~6 feet) and no LH readings were weird. The numbers were also in line with what I had been seeing. Just FYI if you can't just step to the other side to do non-dominant swings.

Uh... yep!  This training system works. Made absolute dead center square contact... 

I hit a whole bucket with the driver alone and the swing speed radar.  Only one of the ll was below 115mph. Most were 117-118, and a handful of 119’s. Two 120’s...

 

Uncharted territory....

 

Goal is now 130+

It is a day earlier then expected, but for those who are needing some evening reading my review is up! Of course there will be much follow up as the program continues and expect a updated scoring on the review in the coming months when I have more rounds in! 
Also final note will be I am going to try and find GC quad or trackman and get a full round up of numbers then fire them off to TXG and say give me a driver since they ship worldwide and will likely be cheaper then anything I can find here in Switzerland. 
Thanks everyone for following along and please feel free to send any follow up if you have them. 
I did not post kneeling swing or step swing numbers as I figured the other data was more relevant to the review, but can go over them if so desired. 
Cheers!

I learned from being a part of the first test group that I’m fastest late afternoon.

I don’t often go to the range or play in the morning but I did go to the range this morning at 9 AM.

I was primarily working on the D7 forged test but for kicks pulled driver and hit 6 with it. I was swinging very well so it was a good test. My average SS was 89, carry 208. That’s compared to a 10 ball sequence hit at 330 PM a few weeks back where it was 93, 220 carry.

No wonder I almost always shoot my better score in the afternoon round of a 2 day tournament. I will now be able to factor this in whenever I play in the morning - take an extra club, always!!!

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

Thanks to all the testers who made it through the complete Level 2! 
 

Some choose now to take a break and some keep going. We have three more levels for those who would like to continue. If you choose to take a break starting at the beginning of Level 3 is fine. If you take an extended break feel free to ask where the best place to start is. 
 

We will be on the forum to continue to assist for new testers or those going through the protocols.

Thanks SuperSpeed - I haven’t taken a break but have been doing maintenance all summer. I’m going to resume next week and was thinking I’d start at level 3 - I finished 2 when I backed off in mid June - I’ve been doing 1-2 level 1 protocols per week since then.

What would you recommend as I start back up in earnest?

@revkev yes Level 3 would be the best place to start up if you can do the 3x per week sessions again.

Thank you for all your input and activity in this thread. Speaking for myself, it was a huge help!

I promised to post a video of one of the sprint protocols. Here is is:

This was my third session doing this protocol - I feel like my balance is improving every time out, but you can still see a couple swing in this video where it is more of a scramble for me to get reset quickly. Question for @SuperSpeed Golf: just for giggles, I have the radar set up, knowing it does not have the response time to capture all the swings, but I was curious what my speeds are doing this versus starting stationary. I have been losing about 10 mph doing this protocol, regardless of which stick I'm swinging. Is this normal? I also understand this protocol is designed to help create lag - is there some specific feeling I am going for or will it just "happen" as I progress?

Guys and Gals, my stage 2/protocol 2 review is up. My apologies for taking so long to post - let's just say there have been external factors that rose to the top of the priority list. I have a bunch of charts, etc. but I chose not to include videos since I would look like a slow poke compared to the rest of the testers - they're swing speed simply amazes me. The most important pic is not of charts, or the PRGR monitor or the sticks but of on- course results. This past spring I started out with a 22.5 index and 10 days ago I got it to a low of18. It's up a bit from that low - for the same reasons this review is late. The reason I'm dropping my Index? More GIR as I mentioned in my review. Why? Because I'm longer not only off the tee but with my second shot. SuperSpeed works.

Great job @tony@CIC and @Apolloshowl - I think it's great that between all of us we span around 4 decades in age with a big variety in swing speeds and have almost universally seen positive results. Something to consider going forward is doing some of the tests for the advanced speed protocols and fitting them in as needed. I've found that I am fresher (and faster) on Fridays since doing that (my usual routine is M, W, F).

That's interesting. I think part of my speed hiccups were the result of doing them on a day I played 18 (didn't want to miss a day doing protocols). We're on our way to Florida this week to look for a winter place, so I missed the workouts. I did take the sticks with me so come Monday, I'm back at it again. I'm absolutely convinced that I'm going to pick up a few more mph to hit my target of 90 come next spring.

You'll have to let us know where because it's on the Gulf side you could get in on the March spectacular that @revkev, @fozcycle and I always play.

Have you incorporated that feel in your on course swing? If so, have you noticed any difference in ball striking or length you hit clubs doing that?

It looks like a good day to play golf!

Nice 2nd Protocol review! Do you think the clubhead speed variances between the different weight clubs was more due to your move and the weather? I was a little surprised the different clubs didn't increase at the same rates over time.   @tony@CIC

It looks like a good day to play golf!
