Anyone with a Rypstick also have an alignment stick cover? Curious If one would fit over the top so I can keep it in my bag and have the cover on top to prevent accidental knocking on clubheads

Great thought. I don't have an alignment stick cover currently, but I'm looking to get one. I've seen a few that appear to be fairly narrow, not wide enough to cover the head of the RypStick. Let everyone know what you find out. I will do the same. 

I just finished Level 2 with my RypStick and can confidently say my speed is way up. Without any weights and normal swing (no heal lift or step) I'm touching 130mph, and with 2 weights I'm hitting low 120s. I've stayed away from using all 3 weights to save my back. This transfers to a driver speed gain on course from 100-105mph to 110-115mph! I think there is more speed to get if I can utilize my legs more. What have others been seeing for results?

On the fitness side, I do a YouTube video from Sydney Cummings 5-6 days per week. She is awesome and uses compound movements a lot instead of static isolation lifts. Great mix of weights, cardio, stretching, etc.

Also, has anyone else had the butt-end of the grip slide? I have about 2 inches of loose grip at the end after using through Level 2.

So Rypstick has informed me they are releasing a headcover for the rypstick soon!  Will be a day one purchase for me

Yes, my experience has been that the butt end of the grip stretches a bit. I just tap it on the ground to reseat it after a few swings.

I assume it has to do with the counterweight and not being able to have tape all the way to the end of the grip.

Yeah, I find it slides a bit too.  Not too much though.  I can't feel it, but it clearly does.  Maybe half an inch.

Just started the 2nd protocol.  I hate those swings on the knees..  Feels so awkward.  They also revamped my TPI exercise routine.  So we shall see.  I've picked up 6 mph but seem to have gotten stuck.  So we'll see if the new protocol helps bump out of that plateau.

A side benefit - with my irons - tough I have not seen a swing speed increase - it sure feels like I am making better, crisper contact.  Flushed one out of the rough today and felt that it was because of this.  They have me doing the Anti-Caster drill - and that is helping as much as anything.

Rypstick released their headcover last week and I ordered mine immediately - hoping to have it by the end of this week.

Still really enjoying this device - it keep it in the bag and use it before every round and before every practice session in addition to the workouts I do with throughout the week.

I averaged 97.4 mph this weekend during a practice session, with a standard deviation of only .8 over twenty shots (yes, that .4 is important to me...)  I know, nothing to write home about for most, but I started at 89.1, and had been stuck around 94/95 for a while.   I think I figured something out to help me release my wrists more easily.    In the last week of two months of their training, and protocol #2 with the casting drill.

Did a virtual lesson with Dr. Luke this weekend.  I was watching myself on video the other day from a range session and I’m still casting it just as hard as before. Luke said it maybe the craziest casting move he’s ever seen.  I get my right (trail) arm stuck way behind me and really bend my lead (left) arm and throw the club way early.  So… we had several back and forth to make sire I’m doing a drill correctly, and he’s kicking me ahead to protocol four with those wrist swings and one arm stone skipping swings. 
 

one the plus side, when I was shooting the videos for Luke I did catch one w a 101 club speed. Nothing for the young flatbellies, I know, but I’ve never seen it (or way back when I did I radars didn’t exist)
