Anyone tried the Lagshot?
 

https://lagshotgolf.com/

 

a seven iron with a super whipy shaft to help ingrain tempo and lag...  Anyone with anything to report?

I use a TourStrike 7 iron to make sure I hit down on the ball, Im wondering if this would be a good compliment.

I have one called a g force: but it’s the same thing. If you have tempo issues this could help, but if you’re a 10 handicap or below I wouldn’t bother...

I have swung one. Unless you are a high handicapper.....this is not the training aid for you. A much better training aid IMO would be either the planemate or the Drive 300 yard impact training aid from Monte Scheinblum.

I use lag shot in my warm up, to help get the feel and tempo started. I tend to get fast and don’t set the club, which had me coming over the top. I’ve had it for a couple weeks, and I have noticed better ball striking. I’m a feel guy and this helps me get that feeling.

The Lag Shot is a swing training aid with the length, loft, and weight of a standard 7 iron. It can be used both for practice swings and to hit balls with. What differentiates the training aid from a regular club, however, is the bright blue whippy shaft.

A write-up on the LagShot on the blog today: https://mygolfspy.com/we-tried-it-lagshot-swing-trainer/

It looks like @GolfSpy Dave is impressed. Do I need another training aid? 🙂

Definitely! Like he says, you’ll hit some weird shots. But once you get the tempo and feel right you will be set. I had to move to the end of the range lol

I'll stick with the orange whip. Pretty much the same idea but you just can't actually hit a ball with the OW.  Many years ago when I was helping my wife with her swing I grabbed her driver. And with a smooth tempo it went to the back of the range. That was a very whippy shaft for me then. The harder I swung the worse the results. Good lag and smooth tempo created great shots. Which is exactly what the LagShot is trying to get you to do.

Option, go find an old graphite women's driver from a bargain barn, play it again sports or something like that and save some bucks.

I picked up the driver, 7 iron, and wedge when they went on sale a week or so ago. Haven’t been able to take them on the range yet but I’ve hit some whiffle balls with them and it appears as though my tempo wasn’t that bad to start with (at least on full swing practice shots). Half swing wedge shots didn’t go as well.  Looking forward to trying the driver out. 
I am impressed with the build quality of the clubs but the grips aren’t anything to get excited about. 
As a side note, I have been doing a bit of training with the planemate striker and I do think that a combination of the 2 tools will help people who have a bad swing/contact issues/tempo. 
Will report back later once I’ve been able to get on the range.

I picked one up this week based on a write up on MGS this week.  I've seen the orange whip a lot lately and thought it might be very helpful for tempo so the idea of something with the same principal that I'm able to hit balls with really intrigued me. And sub $100 made it worth pulling the trigger.

 

I'm disappointed that I received no info about how to access the training videos.  I don't know that I need to training as I have a coach but I do want to know the preferred way to use the thing.  I emailed lagshot, got a quick auto reply but have yet to get an answer to my question.  The website is just a shill for their products.  

 

Since the add said you'll be hitting better shots in just 12 swings I warmed up, hit a series of balls with my 7 iron and then hit 12 with the lagshot - yes, you will want to be on the far side of the range when you first start with this.  But it took only a couple of swings and I was hitting reasonable shots.  My goal for the day was to hit 5 shots and record them, then the 12 practice ones and then 5 more.  Unfortunately I'm at a resort to perform a wedding this evening and the balls were restricted flight ones.  I will give it a try the next time that I hit the range at my club on Friday and report back.  From my perspective I did not improve with the second set of 7 irons.  I was hitting the ball fairly well to start and then was hitting it well again after.  I'm playing tomorrow afternoon after church back up in St. Pete.

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.

Interesting that your purchase didn’t come with any training info. I got both an email with a link as well as a flyer with a QR code to the videos. They even have an app.

I definitely don’t buy into ANY 12 shot regimen making you a better golfer. I do see the benefit of the product though. Good things come with time and repetition.

Spent a little time on the range before a round and I do feel like they help with the swing in general. I do not believe that they actually help increase distance (at least not yet) but I can say that there are few rounds I’ve had where I hit the driver more consistently straight than this. I think that I will actually leave the clubs in my bag and take a few practice swings throughout the round to help reinforce the motion/feeling. 
 

One thing that bothers me is that this LS driver is shorter than my Mavrik (stock length) so it was causing some alignment issues while on the range. Going back and forth between different length drivers is not as easy as I would have thought. 
 

I will definitely keep using these in the future. Sometimes I felt like I was hitting the LS 7 iron better than my own 7 iron.

Yes I did think that was strange - regardless I now have the link, have watched the first two videos and had it one the range yesterday. They guy hitting balls next to me is a mini tour player and he cracked up when I took the thing out of my bag and told him to watch out.  
 

This time I started slow and focused on feeling the clubhead throughout the swing - I hit 10 or so shots off a low tee and then half a dozen off the turf before moving back to my own 7 iron.

 

i certainly felt as if my ball striking and consistency were better post lag shot than pre. That’s what I’m looking for with this, nice consistent load and tempo that maximizes what I have.

 

I only have the 7 iron. Really don’t see the need for the driver. I’m curious about the wedge though.
