Orange Whip Training Aid Reviews

Mr. Desmond

An Excellent Addition to Your Bag

Posted

Pros: Builds rhythm, balance, and power

Appearance - Hold it and the Whip oozes quality and durability. It has heft and flex throughout the club - but not too much - it flexes less below the grip and becomes progressively more flexible as it proceeds towards the tip. Its appearance gives the impression of steel - but since it flexes, it is high quality plastics - a golf grip on one end, a thicker middle, a thinner tip, and topped with an orange sphere that offers weight at the tip end of the Whip. The "white" Whip is 47.5 inches and 1.76 lbs. The "golden" Whip is 44 inches and 1.76 lbs. White and Golden refer to the small ball atop the grip end.   Overall Feel - I suggest you start slowly and make slow 1/8 swings and...

Amazingly simple and effective

Pros: Easy to use, great for training and warm-ups

Cons: Price

OK, so you are holding a whippy stick with an orange on the end. You will do anything to improve your golf swing, even swing the orange. What benefit can it possibly have? These are some of my initial thoughts when I first saw this product, but after reading the incredible online reviews, I decided to take a gamble.    I picked up my Orange Whip from a local supplier and started with the recommended exercises. I found the real benefit is just by doing the fluid full swings without stopping the motion. I used this product more than suggested working up to 75-100 swings at least 4 days a week. I also took it to the range and would swing it to loosen up and then after every...

Recommended swing aid

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, immediate feedback

Cons: Length, potential to promote improper motion

The Orange Whip is swing aid which targets proper swing tempo through the use of an extra flexible shaft and weighted “club head”.  The club head is actually a dense rubber ball about the size… you guessed it… the size of an orange.  The orange ball is counter-weighted by a golf ball sized weight at the grip end.  By using an extra flexible shaft and heavy club head, the Orange Whip will quickly let you know if your swing is slightly out of sequence. I have really liked the idea of removing the traditional club head shape because it keeps your mind focused on one task, tempo.  If the club head were shaped more like a traditional club head, I could easily see...

Orange Whip Training Aid

Posted

Pros: Well built, easy to use, simple instructions

Cons: Too long for indoor use in normal house

  I received the Orange Whip Training Aid as part of the Member Review program.  If first heard about this training aid on the Stan Utley site, a well known short game and putting expert.  Utley claimed that he rarely uses or endorses training aids, but this was the exception.  Stan liked the Orange Whip because it promotes a smooth swing sequence and will identify when you are out of balance or off in your swing sequence timing.   From the Orange Whip site:   THE ORANGE WHIP is the ultimate golf swing trainer and fitness tool for today's golfer and athlete.  It is versatile, dynamic and the most effective swing aid on the market.  ...

Finally a swing aid that works for me

Posted

Pros: Easy to use, seems to do what it is advertised to do. Good workout in short amount of time.

Cons: Too long to be used indoors

I recently received the Orange Whip Trainer to write a review on. There are 3 models and I am using the 47 inch one. It came with a DVD of basically commercials with some tips on how to use it. Of course I am a bit too impatient to read or watch anything so I took it out to the backyard and started to swing away. Since I wasn’t sure I was really getting anything out of it, I decided to watch the informational videos with suggested drills. There are drills to improve flexibility, one armed drills and full swing drills. All 3 drills seem to have given me some improvement in the little time I have had the club. One of the purposes of this training aid is to not have a ball disturb you. In...
