Swing Speed Radar?

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone else use the Swing Speed Radar?  I bought it from amazon a few weeks ago to do some training.  I just want to see if anyone thinks it is accurate.  After I get warmed up I can hit 120+ about 1 out of every 5 swings.  It seems like my average is about 115-116. Also, I don't hit a ball, I just swing.

The thing is, I wanted to see how accurate it was so I took it to Golf Galaxy and they let me hit it on their sim.  While hitting balls, the swing speed radar was anywhere from 0 to 12 mph faster than their measurements (my average on their equipment was about 106).  So I am wondering if my $100 radar is inaccurate or their equipment is inaccurate.  I think I know the answer, but I wanted to see if anyone else has used it.

I just saw your post and wanted to comment.  i definitely think their are inaccuracies with the aerometer.  you can fix it by ordering the vhs instruction manual for around $70 however it is typically on back order and complex but its probably the best way.  if you don't do that then take the battery out and put back in, that almost always works.

I think it could be due to the fact that you have been just swinging with it, and not hitting a ball. I am certain I can swing faster when I am not hitting a ball (practice swing syndrome).

This thing only works when barefoot hitting aDunlop 13-c driver. Ask Treys, she knows how to do that. Or you could ask your cousins uncle to get your money back. Might only cost you 10 bucks.

I know. I just didn't want start a new thread about the product just to comment on their customer service. I figure it would good for people to know they could get the LCD display piece replaced free of charge if they sent an email to Sports Sensors.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Sounds like we just have a different barometer for what "bad" is. This particular case isn't about "adapting" to the new site, the controls are largely the same. The problem is they blew everything up so people can see it on their phones which dilutes the quantity of information you get get to see on your PC. Also they removed useful features like the regions to again make more space for mobile users.
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      Yes, it is extremely popular among Asians of every kind here because it's a rich man's sport in Asia. Many Asians (Korean, Japanese, and large growing Chinese/Taiwanese and many other Southeast Asians) come here and find that Golf is within reach of their "class" so they sign up their kids to play. I'd say that my wife's friend is in that category, and she also convinced us to play as well. So, here I am.
    • Putting Yips
      I completely changed my own putting stroke this year.... twice. Last year I had a terrible case of the yips and was two and three putting a lot of greens - some of the two putts were on putts that were 3-4 footers resulting from chip ons. I averaged 37.8 putts per round. My back hurts when I bend over practicing putting for any length of time. I tried to fix it, but gave up after a while, decided that I needed to hit more GIRs and get closer to the pin. My putting would always be mediocre. So at Xmas I bought a long putter .... cheap $60... no one wants them anymore. I tried side-saddle and practiced in my living room. I took it to the green yesterday and I didn't like it. I changed to the "shoulder-connected method" except with my right arm fully extended and right index finger along the shaft of the putter. I hold the putter gripped over the top like they would when anchoring it to the chest. Now I just rock my shoulders and arm as a unit. Having the right arm fully extended takes my right wrist completely out of the equation and that is what was causing my putting problem. Now, neither my forearm nor the putter head is touching my body. I am making a legal stroke at the ball.  After about 15 minutes work, I was lag putting to within gimme range of the holes on the practice green. When I'd miss the mark, the four footer would still drop. Now this is with a completely new stroke, and not an anchored stroke either. I'm standing fairly upright too so it's easy on my back and I can practice for about 30 minutes every time I go to the range without dreading it. While this might not cure my scoring woes this year, if I look at last years Game Golf analysis, I could save about 3 strokes a round by going from 37.8 putts per round to 34.8.

      Facebook updates all the time for performance reasons. Read their release notes.  But never judge good usability by Facebook as they are one of the absolute worst sites out there.   Honestly?  There isn't.  Some people are still stuck in old web menus but usability has only risen in the last decade.  Are there bad sites?  Sure.  But most sites are far and away better they anytime in the past.  You just have to adapt to them.  This isn't a knock on you its how society works.  I am a user experience designer and study this a lot.   Once a person gets used to changes, going back to the old version would be impossible     
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      Got to the range to drop off clubs for my daughters high school coed golf team tryouts. I sure hope she can get on the team. She's about a 15HC from the men's tees, it's going to be tough. Cross fingers and Practiced my downswing transition on grass and hit much better shots on the grass range after the first few shots. I hit too thin on the course, but was able to get some serious height on the grass range. Going to practice some more on the grass range and use golf club delivery to my daughter as an excuse to spend the extra money. Also, I feel like I can really go after the ball on grass because a fat shot is not as penal on the body as on a mat.
