The Stack System Review and Progress Thread


Recommended Posts

Pretty sure it is just a ratio of length between the stack club and length of your driver. My driver was entered at 45.25"

I like that the App now shows your max speed at each weight during the session to give you a target to beat. Another nice to have detail to keep intention high with each set of swings. 

I would love to gain 5 mph if i can control a slightly longer driver. Right now playing a 44.5".

Anything I've ever read is max 2 MPH per inch increase, average 1-1.5 MPH and minimal for gain for some people. You would need to go to 46" or beyond to get anywhere close to 5.

Back on the gains train. Had driver going 107-108 on the radar with no ball after this session. Hoping I’m faster for the Titleist demo day at the end of May than the Callaway demo (95 mph). Going to take the recommendations from both of those sessions and do a driver fitting at the end of this season to compare with the releases from Ping and Cobra.

I was about 2mph difference on trackman between my TSi 2 vs. SIM Max, 0.5" difference but thats not a perfect comparison of course.

Finally felt good enough to get my baseline in and get started on this. 2097416945_Screenshot2021-05-05at8_37_39AM.png.f64e2284a42bfeac55719580abcca715.png

I hope my distance potential increases and is due to my back. Either that or I'm calling Mom and screaming I have finally reached my potential!!

Today’s Foundation session. Slight improvements even though some swings felt off.

Up and down session last night with some new programming of 2 sets at light weights. Broke PB by 3 MPH at 80g and saw a large jump at 75g while using a new swing thought focussed on tempo. Unfortunately, it didn’t carry over to the driver benchmarking weight at 195g. 

After the stack protocol I did however make two swings with driver (no ball) and hit 110 on the radar both times which was a new top speed. Maybe I should get one of those Cobra FMax ultralight drivers. 🤣

Progressing nicely through the Foundation program. Definitely not a burner, but I feel like I’m picking up speed!

Interesting to see your session 8 weights are significantly different than mine. Lots of customization happening within the app already it seems.

The app is seriously the best part. Can’t go wrong with individualized training!

I just noticed today that the app notifies you swing by swing when you set a record at each weight with a fake applause.

Kind of a frustrating session honestly. I couldn’t believe my 195g speed was the same as 220g, but I’m soldiering on. Will be interesting to see how the app adjusts to this mediocre session!

Fast day today, broke speed records by 7, 3, and 1 MPH at 235g, 120, and 195g. Didn't make the loosest swings at 195g as I was expecting to smash the record by 3-5 MPH based on other weights. Driver again topped out at 110 with no ball after the session. The pressure shift move in early backswing from AMG that @cnosil posted in his swing thread has been paying immediate dividends. 

The more I use the Stack, the more I feel it would benefit a wider population of golfers compared to SuperSpeed due to it's carryover to actual golf swings. Making 36 normal swings on your dominant side with forced rest gives you time and opportunities to make small tweaks to grip, stance, and other fundamentals to see what makes you faster. Compared to wondering if you planted a bit harder or stepped farther with SuperSpeed. Let alone worrying about losing the golf club on non-dominant swings and the number of missed reads I would get on those erratic swings. 

Between this technique change and speed training, my irons are averaging roughly 10 yards farther than last year - 150 yard 9 irons, yes please! Now I want to take a day or two off practicing in the hopes my body will have more time to remember the good swing 😂

Yesterday I shot a 39 with no birdies after bogeying the first 2 holes on a 9 I have never played before. It was likely my best iron play ever and first round since enhanced COVID restrictions started in Alberta. Quite amusing to see 5 straight singles playing 6 minutes apart, but finished the 9 holes in 1 hour 45 minutes which is faster than a 4some at this course. So a big win overall, compared to no golf in Ontario...

Especially funny to see people tailgating in the parking lot since 5 people can gather outdoors, just not while playing golf in the same group...

Swing felt good today, and I think I tense up for the 195g swings. All good, I’m happy with the trainer and hope to see it translate to the course!

Stage 3 transitions from “Full swing” to max speed for swing intention. Although I didn’t notice this until most of the way through my first set just about when the batteries died on my radar, which I will blame for the low speeds. 
Another round of personal bests which was also confirmed by a 112 and 113mph swing my gamer driver with no ball after the session.

I guess I completely didn't notice the full vs. max thing at any point, so I have been going pretty much max the whole time lol. Good to know.

It was difficult for me at the beginning to feel a “full swing” compared to a normal club instead of swinging the stack as hard as possible and I mostly swung close to top speed. I definitely pushed it harder today, but I was still focusing on my tempo. When I try to swing fast, my speeds drop due to poor sequencing of the transition. So that defeats the point. 
 

This I feel is a benefit of the stack, your getting realistic swing reps instead of happy Gilmore swings and doing the triple jump for super speed. 
 

Unfortunately, I need to make sure I don’t try to smash irons because it is giving me another gear. I hit an 8 iron 170 today, it’s usually my 160 club.
