Played a round finally in normal conditions yesterday (no 40mph headwind lol).

Drives were while not longer than usual this was also a round in february and within my summer distances.  Distance aside I am striking the driver better so thats nice.

irons somewhat of a mixed bag, absolutely roasted a 6i almost 190yds which was... something.

Iron striking hasnt quite found its groove yet, but saw more good hits than I did last week.

3w and 3h are fighting me but im sure those will come around.

cant wait for warmer weather and firmer fairways. 

 

definite highlight was hitting it to the cart path turn here before green sign from one tee box farther back (blue).  one which Id only done from the box in front of it (white) maybe twice.

Feel like I’m treating this as my own personal stack thread haha.

so did a session today after playing yesterday.  Tons of new PBs and also did a dry swing with the driver after the session.

ive never swung over 100mph.  Ever.  Last check for me (also on a prgr) was under 100 think 98 coming out of my shoes.  This was just now with maybe a harder swing but definitely not a max swing.

New update on video library has been great! I had a crazy day the other day as well and set records at every weight + highest 195 set/swing ever. Good to have those every now and then after so long at a plateau

Great work! I had a bit of a messy round yesterday. By and large driver was going long in spite of the conditions (temperature was close to freezing with windchill), but couldn't find directional consistency - this is after my last round when I hit 10/14 fairways. I hit 9/14 fairways, but also blasted two balls in a row out of bounds (first was a high looping slice which was very uncharacteristic, second was a snap hook) to card a score destroying snowman.

I had such a good Stack session prior to this, but didn't seem able to get my lead foot consistency dialled in. My left leg felt like a spaghetti strand in terms of getting my weight transfer timing, and I found it a bit hard to "back off" full speed Stack style swinging. I'm guessing this is all "part of the process" but it was a bit of a frustrating one.

Worst customer service ever.  Asked for a video to be added to the faq.  Was told it’s totally normal.IMG_8227.jpeg.0d5a5d91352a5d413704e216a06ad6b5.jpeg

@Rearviewmirror  It took me maybe 2-3 rounds to really get back to being comfortable with my driver.  yours will come around.  Also sucks if you are fighting the weather since you wont get really comfortable plus swinging in layers sucks.  Started the stack beginning of january so it was all I was doing with it being.... january.

We are getting the odd 60* day here and there so have been hitting the course a couple times lately.

Hahaha!

I've also somewhat brought this on myself at least partially as I'm bedding in a new driver at the same time and think I'm likely in the wrong shaft. Progress is non-linear in golf, and I'm trying to accept that reality!

Anybody else having trouble post-app update? I'm on the iPad app and ever since the update, the voice input and countdown timers have been totally messed up. I'll swing, say the speed, it'll repeat back the speed, but it doesn't input the numbers into the data field, doesn't show the speed, and doesn't show the countdown timer. Then I'll hear the beeps for the 3-second countdown, but it's like the UI still thinks I'm on swing 1. So then I walk over and type in the speed and it repeats back the speed for swing 1 (yes, it's repeating back TWO swing 1 speeds) but at no point is it showing the countdown timer.

Then I'll go to set 2 and I'll get a countdown timer between sets, but not even the beeps between swings for the rest of the session. Super annoying/buggy. 😞

I’ve had it do goofy stuff too.

noteably it’ll say session whatever complete.  Hit ok.  Then it’ll say the next session complete.

its been a little goofy but a force restart usually sorts it out

Wow, no, haven’t experienced any issues with it through 2 Neural Drive sessions and 3 putting sessions.

Did just see that the Rapsodo MLM2PRO is now listed among the speed devices on the Stack website, and it’s now in the Stack settings menu in the app.  The rub: you need 2 devices, one for the Stack app and one for the Rapsodo app.

My neighbor will be likely giving this a try.  He’s got an mlm and is going to order the stack at some point (with my code of course haha).

I'm somewhat mystified by the lack of integrations happening with the Stack App - it wouldn't be that hard for them to setup bluetooth integration w/ launch monitors, completely automating the swing speed entry process.

More just very steady progress.  Can’t wait for summer and drier fairways plus warmer weather.  Ridiculous to think I’m not even fully done with program 1 yet.  I have without a doubt gained about 10mph on my irons.  My fitting from a couple years ago at this point I was at 75mph clubhead speed with a 7i.  I can do mid 80's now with an 8i easily.

Stack FOMO is real.  I said it in my review, but my single biggest complaint about the whole Stack system is that I didn't start 3 years earlier.

It’s such a fun ride. Previous speed maxes just start to become more effortless over time.

oh for sure, just swinging in my living room with driver I was over 100.  Now on course I to tend to throttle a bit still (course is pretty narrow lots of houses).  8i Iron was high 80's.

Its just nuts.

With me being now a tee box back per league rules... its very handy.  Its 20-40yds farther from just one box back.

This gets said periodically, but I really think it should be stated explicitly in the app and in any marketing materials over and over and over. It's hard to understate how important it is to grasp that even if your max doesn't increase that much, your floor will come up and you'll find your cruising speed rising to meet your max. 

Related, I was recently informed of a group text chat among other members at my club all discussing my recent gains. It's still been pretty chilly, but when the longest player in our group noticed that I was keeping pace with him (and driving past him on good strikes), it's quite a statement. My favorite moment was the 10th hole, which is a tough dogleg right par 4 with OB left, a bunker right, and absolute death right of the bunker. Most guys can still hit driver, but if you can get it to ~270-280, you need to drop down to 3-wood, even though it leaves a longer approach. There was a note of surprise when I pulled 3-wood, but then flared it just a bit. From the tee, said long hitter asked, "just short of the bunker?" and then was surprised to see that I landed at the extreme long edge of the bunker and it nearly bounced out, about 265 from the tee.

I’ve described it to people I know that are gamers.  It’s like upgrading parts on a pc you might not raise your max fps, but it’ll raise your minimums which are very noticiable.
