CFRitchie, Thank you for the note and I'm glad you are getting back into the game!   Since your #1 issue is the 'drop inside' on the the downswing, leading to high and right.   I would encourage the Orange Whip Mid-size, it is shorter than the Orange Whip Trainer (Driver length) and will allow you to swing much more on plane to encourage a better path.  The shorter length makes it easier to swing left, and keep you in balance.  Also, the Orange Whip Mid-size is perfect...
Andy,   I would recommend the Orange Whip Mid-Size (formally called Golden) for your needs.   Since your focus is irons and wedges, you can accommodate both needs with the Mid-size.   If you hold it at full length, it will be like your long irons.  If you choke down on the grip, it will be more like a short iron.   https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/16179674/Orange%20Whip%20Product%20Info%202014/OW%20Brochures%202014/OW%20Poster%20Brochure_ForWebView%20(1).pdf   I...
  Very good question about the left foot and if it should remain planted or if it can be lifted.?   As you noticed, in the Orange Whip videos I tend to raise my left foot quite a bit, but when I hit a driver I keep the left foot fairly well planted.   The reason I lift the left foot during the Orange Whip drills is to maximize the stretch I receive while swinging the Orange Whip.   Also, by exaggerating my footwork, I am actually improving my balance and coordination.  ...
Thank you for the question regarding the Orange Whip Trainer (longer version).   The quick answer is Yes, your wife could easily grip down a few inches and it would replicate the same sensation as the Orange Whip Golden.  So, sharing the Orange Whip Trainer would work well.   The Orange Whip Trainer and the Golden are made with the same components, but the Golden is 4 inches shorter than the Trainer.   Since it is shorter, the Golden seems easier to manage while using it,...

Beach, In regards to the Orange Whip and the Orange Peel, the Whip was designed to synchronize your arms and body by swinging back and forth in repetition. Due to the unique design of flexible shaft and weighting system, if you swing Whip correctly, you will feel balanced and powerful. Incorrectly, and you will feel awkward and off balance. The combined use of both products encourages a balanced, powerful swing that is easy to repeat.
Beach, The Orange Peel was designed to center and balance your core while training your athletic golf swing motion. This leads to improved consistency all year long. Since you are a low handicapper, the greatest benefit you can receive from the Peel is opportunity to work on any lie angle and how you maintain balance in all these situations. Most golfers, good and bad, rarely practice their ability to make an athletic swing while on an un-even lie. Usually, the...
Boogielicious,Your question on frequency of use and concern for stress related injuries is a great one. I wish I could give you a definitive answer, but since I am a PGA golf pro and not a doctor or therapist, I am unable to fully answer your question.Based on my personal experience, as well as feedback from other regular users of the Orange Whip, we have not received any injury issues from these golfers. Personally, my shoulders and wrists feel better now, then they...
  Hello mdl,   Thank you for the questions!  The way to use the Orange Whip Trainer to promote a smooth flow with proper timing and release is to start swinging the Orange Whip back and forth in constant motion at a very slow pace.  You start with half golf swings and build slowly into your full swing.  While slowly swinging the Orange Whip in a continuous motion, you must maintain your balance.  These are the two main keys with the Orange Whip: a back and forth...
