The Stack System Review and Progress Thread

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.

It's not the club that is worth the money, if is the app/program that is worth the money. I am getting sick of 95g swings but the program knows I am weak in that area vice swinging heavy weights.

Time for an update from my end (I'm using the red swing speed radar).

I'm through 11 sessions and the results are pretty incredible so far to be honest. Here are some numbers to show the progress so far:

I did take one lesson during these sessions which just helped with my take away and don't know if it had any impact on speeds but I've definitely made some nice gains for myself.

I don't have a trackman or haven't been fitted recently to see real gamer speeds on a radar but I did play golf this week and there were a couple holes with my driver that I hit past bunkers that I traditionally couldn't carry at all. I noticed a pretty big difference in overall length with the driver (irons weren't having a great day) compared to a couple weeks ago. So far, seems to be working very well.

I totally agree with you. Just don't have the $350 at the moment, so I'm living vicariously through you guys. 

One thing I think is interesting is the Stack System seems to use weights much heavier and lighter than SuperSpeed. I haven't noticed people talking about that aspect on the various threads. I think Sasho/Jertson must be taking a different approach. I trust them more than anyone else. 

Based on my observations:

SpeedSpeed goes from ~255-262 grams (Green light stick) to 335-343g (Red heavy stick)

Stack System goes from 48g cap/152g shaft=200g with no weights all the way up to 480g (200g stick w/280g weights on). 280g is the heaviest I've seen in any of the posted protocols.

There is a significant difference between the two systems. I think that's interesting and I'd love to hear more from Sasho on why they think such heavy weights are still effective. 

Keep posting results. These are super motivational.  Attached are pics of my poor man's version. I might have to plunk down the big bucks and join the club.

Enough said, I have had my large jumps at mid day. My sessions after work are usually lackluster.

That is amazing! Congrats.

Tricky bit about these numbers is the first 4 sessions of each program are at "gamer" swing. Afterwards you are instructed to swing at a maximum, which is probably around 5 mph faster than you would use on a course other than the long drive hole for your scramble. 

What is your average drive on course? I would be interested to see how these numbers "stack" up against real word performance for yourself as well as @mr.hicksta and @dlow206

I average 250 on all drives according to Shot Scope and my Performance Average on good shots is around 270. My gamer swing speed is around 100 mph versus 110 on the Stack with peaks of 115.

Just got back from a work trip so I'll be starting Foundation round 3 today!

To your question @BMart519what I'm seeing on course doesn't match up with what I see in training. On occasion I'll put one out there 275+, but there are times when I have trouble making decent contact. Definitely something I'm still working on, but I'm sticking with the program and trusting the process so I hope to start seeing the benefits!

Interesting session last night. Decided to significantly change my intention to: make a slow, wide backswing with the left arm pushing the club back as far as possible. Then almost pause at the top and plant the left heel to initiate the downswing. This is a feel that is really close to my gamer swing and was leading to good contact in my warmup. 
 

the result: set personal bests at all weights for both single swings and averages. Weather was nearly 20 degrees colder than seasonal, so that would have been working against me compared to previous fast days.  
 

Resumption of weight training on the FFG 101 program is definitely helping move past this plateau and eliminate muscle pain with 2 of my past 3 sessions being at or above previous all time bests.

Foundation round 3! Swing felt pretty free today so I’m happy with my speeds.

Still plugging along and have been back on my Fit For Golf training, too. I think the combination will yield long term results!

Routine #2 - neural drive. Not the results I was hoping for 🙃 next up is another session of foundations which did yield gains on the first go around. More weight lifting is needed to improve force output. Fatigue from playing multiple times per week, beginning weight training, as well as some deficiencies highlighted by a physio all likely contributed to the stagnation. Environmental factors like colder ambient temp in September vs start of training in July or august could also affect the results. Definitely looking forward to 2 weeks off, 24 sessions was a lot in this program.

Hey y’all! Been knocking out my training and wrapped up my third time through Foundations. Looks like the app is recommending it again after a break so I’ll get back on it after 10/25. Hope everyone’s Stack’n has been going well! 🏌🏾💥⛳
