So, I've opined on this thread that, in my opinion, while it was helpful it wasn't absolutely necessary to have a radar to successfully pursue SuperSpeed training.  It's only right that I eat some crow, apologize to a few like @tony@CIC, and admit I was wrong...dead wrong.

My theory that I could make up for lack of a measuring device with effort and persistence did not appear to hold water.  If anyone has followed my offseason training thread you'll know I've beat the hell out of myself in the weight room, and have worked my way up to Level 4 SuperSpeed protocols, but did the latter absent a speed measuring device despite the sage wisdom of many on here.  

To say I've wasted my time would be inaccurate, but the speed gains have not been commensurate with the time or effort invested, so much so that I'm going back to the drawing board and starting all over at Level 1, plus a C Club protocol.  (I am trying to figure out how to work in some Single Arm work, but that's another conversation.)  This time, I have a radar.

Let this be a lesson to any other stubborn jack@sses like myself...get the damn radar.

Having gotten that off my chest...I did want to ask a question...many of you have described the benefit of the radar as helping you to identify what produces a fast swing versus simply a harder swing.  Can any of describe exactly what it was/is tangibly that you learned in your swing to produce greater speeds?  I keep waiting for the epiphany or realization to hit me, but for now I'm searching.  Case in point, on my C Club Max Out swings this morning at the end of the protocol, I had a 10 mph variance from the first swing to the second, and I can't honestly tell you what I physically did different at all.  Searching a bit.

There have been lots of great swing thoughts posted already, and I'm duplicating some of them. But, for sake of anyone stopping by this review, thought I'd add in my thoughts/feels:

  • Loose wrists/forearms.
  • Good balance throughout the swing. 
  • High hands on the backswing.
  • A slight "pause" of the hands at the top, which for me is more of a reminder to not rip the club down from the top.
  • Fluid hips and lower body, with a big turn into my right side. Get the belt buckle pointed as far to the right as possible.
  • Feeling like I accelerate through the hitting zone.

Anyone on here change the grips on your speed sticks? I’m thinking of trying a CB jumbo max grip to reduce hand pressure and tension while doing to protocols

Haven't, but can't say it would be any different then a normal Club in the procesd. It was something i put in my review that i would like to see in the future. A sort of custom fitting option with different grips, sizes and so on.

That is a good thought! I typically use midsize grips because they seem to reduce discomfort in my slightly arthritic left hand.

Anyone not using their PRGR swing speed radar? 

After being in the first testing for a bit before my hip surgery, I had to send the sticks back to SS & now I don't have a swing speed radar.  Today I received my set again after forking out the cash in my desperate search for more swing speed.  Gonna be hard to track my results without a radar.

I just used a piece of paper and then entered it on their sheet. It worked fine.

Glad you’ve recovered well enough to give it a whirl. I felt bad for you when you went down.

Did you get a radar? Take it from me, don't do the training without it.  

I went nearly an entire year ignoring the smarter people on this thread that we're gently-to-strongly encouraging me to get one...figured I'd make up for the lack of a radar with commitment and effort.  I stayed committed, got all the way to halfway through Level 4 despite cold garage training in a Nebraska winter, but when I finally popped for a radar...let's just say I was shocked and embarrassed by the astonishing lack of progress.  I didn't need the radar to stay motivated, but it's absolutely true that it's vital to teach you how to produce speed.

No I haven't yet.  Still hoping someone who is done with their training coughs one up.  Or maybe SS chimes in with an offer to get another radar?

If you ever do get a radar I can send you my spread sheet for keeping track. The radar for me not only helped log progress but keep track of where the fastest point in my swing is. If I made two swings of equal effort but one was significantly slower than the other on the radar then I know I released the club way to early and lost a ton of speed for the same amount of effort.

March is here and I finally got my first round of superspeed in this past Saturday.   I am pretty sure it all is a dream because the results were waaaaaaay different than expected.  Good news and bad news to report.  I thought I lost a little speed over 2020 and that was verified in my pre-protocol driver swings topping out at a whopping 103mph.  

On to the positives.  If there is anything that stands out, following these protocols as instructed taught me to how to let loose and swing faster.  My goal going into superspeed was cresting 110mph with my driver.  That has now changed.  After doing the first workout Saturday evening, I picked up my driver to see if there was any difference; the 3 swings measured 119, 120, 121.  To say I am shocked is an understatement.  I don't know how much of this will translate to the golf course, but I am pumped and can't wait to see where this goes. 

Now the bad news, I picked up a nagging injury in the gym this morning because I am stupid and didn't warm up or stretch so I'm on the sideline for the next few days-week.

I have been doing the protocols for 4 weeks since "being back" and have slowly seen my speeds decrease week to week. With that I've decided to only do the flat swings to not do the step change. I have found I struggle maintaining my sequencing and it decreases my overall speeds. Will report back after 4 weeks what I find.

I have not done a training since I had my lower leg injury a month or so ago.  I feel as if I'm healthy enough to start again when I return from a trip to do a church service on the other side of the state the end of this week - so maybe Sunday after the Players.

However a funny thing happened on the golf course Sunday and range today.  I hit my last drive past my friend who is 10 years younger and normally 15 yards longer than I am on 18 - we are finally getting some roll although to be honest that often increases the distance between us as he launches it far lower than I do.  Then today my driver Swing Speed was in the low to mid 90's very consistently - I've been averaging 94 and I averaged 93, actually 93.4 today so it's not that far off.  I can only attribute that to the physical therapy that I've been doing.  I think those two things in tandem have great potential.

Alright did my first workout in about a month. I can still feel it in my Achilles. It my trainer told me it’s time to push it so I did.

Just did level 1 - I will stick with that for a couple of weeks then maybe jump to where I was. Speed was down in protocols though I had a few curious left handed ones including a records 105 with the Red Stick. [emoji851]

What was good was the dry driver swings - 105 top, 103 average pre protocol, 112 top, 107 average post.

I won't go into the full round in this thread but I played my first round of the year this past Saturday, and oh my word I haven't been that bad off the tee in years!  Long, but HUGE push fades.  My approach shots started out okay but as the round progressed everything started right and leaked right.

After a winter of non-stop SuperSpeed work maybe that's to blame?  It seems to me that I was flying open, I need to spend some time on the range and find my normal draw, and I suspect I'll be able to find it quickly just by focusing on the feeling of keeping my back to the target longer.  Just thought I'd share here given I know many have experienced some wild ball flight after embarking on these protocols.  I trust most everyone sorted that out soon enough?
