Which size (length) do you guys use?  I'm presuming the "trainer"?

Looks like this is a competing product and currently on sale w/free shipping.  Anyone use this?

Hey.. I happen to have three (!!!) OWs - the full-length Trainer, the Compact (simulates iron swings; also better indoors), the Light Speed.

The "Trainer" is the most commonly seen and used one.

The product at that link looks just like the SKLZ Gold Flex; which is a good warm-up tool but does not appear to be counterbalanced like the OWs are .. so, imo, not as effective as a full swing trading aid.

I already bought and sold an OW. but i think i need one again to use for warm-up before rounds.

Ha! You are one crazee club 'ho 😜

Yes, swinging an OW can feel really weird at first, but stick with it and you'll start to see some nice benefits 👍

Oh, and check out the video @fixyurdivot included in his post above - the inventor of the OW talks about different models and what they can be used for and which might fit better for different people.

Yeah, I had one, but then saw at my club they had one that everyone could use for warm-ups. But then Covid hit and that OW is not available for folks to share anymore.

Just received my Orange Whip Duo set of the Original and the Lightspeed.  Will be starting on the drills soon and hope to gain some distance over the winter since my Arccos caddie is telling me that I’m losing strokes because of my driver distance.

The work I did earlier in the year has paid off.  My handicap is at the lowest point it has ever been, had my two lowest rounds of my life recently, a 68 and a 69.  I’ve achieved my goals this year of getting below a five handicap and breaking 70.  

My goal for next year is to figure out how to get down to scratch.

I am, yes. I don't follow any official protocols, though; my main emphasis is still working through the foundations of my swing .. current focus on better impact position.

I'm finding - happily - that as the base of my swing improves, so does my swing speed (slightly).

As I reported in the SuperSpeed 2020 thread, I'm using the regular OW in conjunction with the sticks.

I start out with 50 swings with the OW then to Protocol 2 with the sticks then finish up with the OW. The OW helps me maintain the swing mechanics, so I'm not pushing the OW to swing faster but rather to swing correctly.

..swing correctly

That's a great way to put it! The more I use the OW the more sensitive I get to how it's trying to help guide me towards a "correct" swing.

I bought the Orange Whip Distance Duo instead of the SuperSpeed sticks.

Had a coupon for 15% off and free shipping, no sales tax, so about $155.

A friend had the Orange Whip and I really liked it when using it to warm up before a round.  Have been watching all of the YouTube videos to learn what the drills are and how to do them.  

Right now Arccos is telling me that my Driver Smart range is 222-239 yards.  After reviewing my driving stats for the last 10 rounds my longest drives are in the 250-260 range and my bad ones are in the 200-215 range.  An average drive is about 230.

I’m very goal oriented, retired, soon to be 53 years old and my current GHIN handicap is 4.1.

I had 158 rounds in 2019 with an average score of 81.8.  So far this year I’ve got 190 rounds in and my average score for 2020 is 79.1.  My scoring average for the last 20 rounds is 76.5.   

My driver technique is definitely a hindrance as I tend to be wristy on the take away, bend my left elbow in the backswing and cast the club on the downswing.  

The Orange Whip right away seems to help me improve my tempo and my technique.  When warming up with it I can feel my back getting a nice stretch and see that it frees up my turn.

Will update this thread periodically as I do the drills and get some more experience with them.

Thx for mentioning that .. I need to go back and re-watch all of their vids, and then develop a good workout/practice routine for myself to follow over the Winter!

And - great deal on the Duo pack .. good shopping 👌

I bought the OW Lightspeed a few months ago while in Oregon; on sale and no tax.  I have been using the Skilz Gold Flex for warmups before practice and play.  I like it.  My problem with the OW is the counterbalance ball.  While it isn't very big, it's big enough that it takes up too much room in my bag to keep with me all the time, so it stays home.  I use it in my hitting bay on days I don't go to the range.  

The Skilz GF has a grip just like the one on my clubs, so it fits in my bag nicely.  It also doubles as the holder for my driver head cover while I'm playing, so I don't have to put on/take off 'Sylvester' all the time.

The counterbalance on the Light Speed is a little larger than the one on the regular Trainer, so yeah could be a little bulky in the bag. But the Gold Flex.. as you know.. is a very useful warmup & stretching tool.

And I'm sure Sylvester looks good .. and has a good view .. from his perch on it 😂

Thinking of having a Duo shipped all the way to Southeast Asia. Can the Lightspeed simulate as a compact for irons Trainer?

Wow hope the shipping charge is not too crazy! Considering how popular the OW is, you'd think they might set up a global distribution.

But on your question - IMO, no ... the Light Speed vs the Compact version of the trainer really are two different "tools" and function differently. 

I find an advantage in having all three. If that's not possible, though, consider what's more important for you to work on; for example, it was discussed earlier in this thread that the standard OW Trainer can help you build swing speed so pairing it with a Compact can let you work on different swing types.

Hope that helps?

Not even direct shipping to where I am, will be finding a way around. But if it helps me with my game (just 4 months playing), should be worth it.

Thanks for this, it will definitely help with my decision.

Nice - welcome to this sometimes frustrating but fun game!

Disclaimer - I am NOT a teaching pro, but what worked for me, to help me work on my swing, is the Regular and the Compact trainers. My thinking is "build the foundation" and then work on adding speed; so I think of the Light Speed as an add-on.

Either way good luck and enjoy!
