First his tone was very condescending. Second, I rarely see him use video. He said people were obsessed with hitting positions and looking perfect. Which I agree with. But if you learn to use it properly it's a tool. And also a diatribe against iPhones.

Anti video rant as in "you aren't going to get better using video" or as in "I hate it when people video themselves at my range to use with outside coaches?"

He probably teaches using terms like "Your tempo was off" and "That is the one".  That is the way to teach.

You weren't videoing him in the locker room, changing clothes, were you?

No, no locker at range, lol.

If he had a good rep and knew the true ball flight laws and all that maybe I might have taken lessons from him one day, although small chance of it, but now he eliminated himself completely. Probably thought I was a lost cause in terms of lessons because of the camera which is not far from the truth but from a business perspective, it just makes sense not to say things that might alienate potential clients.

Sorry, bro, but that was one of the weakest rants I've ever seen.

You don't get to say "rant over" after that pathetic effort! :dance:

Was he an old guy?  I can't imagine anyone born within the last 4 decades getting their panties in such a twist over something like that.  He's probably just mad he had to learn to play with an abacus and snow shoes.

Maybe he has magical eyes that can view every swing in super slow motion and he wants to leverage that super power.
