The Stack System Review and Progress Thread


Recommended Posts

Did my progress test today and it looks like my overall speed stayed the same. The app recommended I take two weeks off and start training again on 6/18, which I found a bit odd. Either way, I’m going to adhere to the recommendation and I’m going to read up on the other programs before I select which one I’m doing.

Yeah, hit the showers. Don't need you hitting it 331 when you move back here.

Yeah, I’m not taking a damn two week break! After chatting with Sasho I’ll be giving Foundation another go since that’s what the app is recommending.

Rest season progress check. Not bad for 55F with a couple single arm swings for warm up and then ramping up from 90 mph swing speed.

Started Lead Arm Enhancer, my SC200 was unable to capture lead arm swings (trail and 2 arm swings worked fine). Used the Stack website to reach out for support. Within 15 minutes I was on the phone with the man, the myth, the legend; Dr. Sasho Mackenzie. 

We discussed speeds from baselining when I first received the Stack, my speeds during progress check, and decided Lead Arm Enhancer was likely recommended because I was not able to capture lead arm speeds during my recent progress check. The missing data would have showed as a large deficiency in the software which prompted the recommendation for Lead Arm Enhancer. Also, discussed my launch monitor as it was one of the few he did not test along with the Stack to determine whether they read speed correctly with his product and came up with a few ways to test it for minimum speeds. 

He recommended I go to the next program down the list which is Neural Drive. Looking forward to it. Never expected to be chatting with the creator and even provided my feedback about improving the threads so you drop the cap less which he is going to discuss with Marty Jertson from PING. Another vote for this product as you cannot beat that level of customer service.

I wholeheartedly agree! Sasho has quickly answered every question I’ve asked. Seriously next level customer service!

Was off on my training days last week so my grit score slipped a bit. I’m back on track now, though and I’ve noticed my second time through Foundation has been a little different. The app has definitely adjusted based on my first time through.

I got mine earlier this week and finally had time to complete the baseline today. 

Overall, the app is very easy to use as others have mentioned with recorded instructions and built in rest etc. 

I’m not a long hitter compared to some of the numbers others are posting here so really looking forward to hopefully seeing some progress here. 
 

Here is my baseline for tracking purposes.

Pro tip: speed train when it is 90+ degrees outside.

4” tees do wonders for your launch conditions

Not sure if 90 would get me nice and loose or be too warm for me. Though I agree that these warmer days have helped the swing speed a lot.

I just wanted to post a quick update as I finished my first real week with the stack. It’s interesting to see how the app changes and the training exercises it wants you to do. So far, I’ve actually made pretty good progress in the first week. Here is the baseline and the results after session 4. 

4F3489E0-618B-4626-A27D-49BF47970EB5.jpeg.68e854e81e184c67e2c00af6951c83ef.jpegE77C92F9-890D-40DF-9653-580358C92EF4.jpeg.1d33a42b08cb6349ade9158dd1548a42.jpeg

 

I’m looking forward to seeing how the next couple weeks go and will continue to post updates. 
 

The one thing I’ll have to inquire on is the Drive eSpeed. I actually swung my driver after the session today and the app is telling me I should be swinging the driver 90mph but I actually swung it 99mph. Just curious what others have seen with this.

Was not expecting to top all my previous speed records and then tie all time speed at the 195g driver weight on the day after my second covid vaccination. But speed training can be funny… I was able to get my actual driver up to 115 mph with no ball after the session. But 100-105 is my maximum gamer speed at this point

Proceeded to flush a 4 iron at 234 carry after the session on my radar and another at 217 which would be a game changer on tight holes.

This is the real deal. I have made it through 5 sessions and the results are quite good.

What length driver do you play and which launch monitor are you using to get speed?

Did a driver fitting yesterday... Gamer swing is steady around 100 MPH which is disappointing on 1 hand compared to my numbers during swing training which are regularly around 107+ (and 115 without a ball). But also 5 MPH faster than during a demo day in May. 

On the positive side, no new drivers beat out my gamer F9 and my launch and spin were in the ideal range on Trackman and in the ping fitting charts for my delivery. The G425 LST came close with the stock Alta CB shaft. I asked the fitter if any of the current upcharge shafts would offer any benefit and the response was NO... 

I guess I need to pickup yards the old fashioned way with some lessons and get back on Fit for Golf in addition to Stack. Then figure out ways to add speed on the course while maintaining control and strike location.

My physio recommended a minimum of 1-2 weight training sessions per week to keep my body in good enough shape to withstand the loads from speed training after I went in to have some persistent hip tightness looked at. I've also been having persistent tightness in my back and neck as well over the past few weeks even with dropping the Stack to 1-2x per week. 

Judging by my speeds in the Neural Drive program, it also looks like I am at a plateau along with the fact my driving distance numbers have decreased 3-5 yards since the start of the season. (Some of this could be course conditions). A shift in focus back toward strength training is needed to boost force output and keep increasing output.

Just curious in creating a DIY version with my 3d printer. How much does the shaft/grip weigh (grams) and how much does the screw on head weigh? Obviously, without any weights on. Thank you in advance! Great thread.

I use a 45 inch driver (not 48 like some of the guys posting on twitter to get fake distance results) and I use the Swingspeed Radar (Blue) to measure speed.

I have since increased my SS by 1 MPH since posting this
