Re: Medicus- Does it work?
Take the money you were going to spend on a hinged driver and get a weighted one -
When we got a Medicus driver several years ago I think it helped my son because at first he was doing things that would cause it to hinge.
Really didn't do anything for me because evidently none of my many flaws are something that would cause it to hinge. I could swing the thing time after time with my "normal" swing and never have it hinge (and I certainly don't have a good swing).
In short, I think it can help some people but it's not going to fix all swing flaws or show that certain flaws exist.
I was sent an online offer for a golf item; http://www.medicus.com/special_offer_falllineindicator299.php?sid=103069
I was asked to authorize a $9.98 payment on my credit card. I did. That is all I was asked and authorized. After I did, another window popped up explaining I would also be sent two other items I did not authoriz and a monthly fee each month after. I searched frantically to cancel or opt out. There was no option for me. I was then charged $33.84 and will be charged monthly until I return two items that are being sent to me I did not even know about. This has to be illegal. I phoned to cancel and was told I could not and would have to return the items I did not order which will cost me. Then call my credit card to create a dispute. It's unbelievable. Here is other acts of fraud posted for Medicus Golf;

The internet is full of consumers having fraud committed against them by this company.
I'd opt for Orange Whip or Momentus.
Being able to hit balls also has a downside. Folks will try to swing as hard as possible eventually, and do you want that much momentum taxing your rotator cuffs in the swing? Not me. It's nice to be able to hit balls but gotta keep the intensity lower.
I have the 5 iron some where. Not sure where. I used it when I first got it. I found it so frustrating to use, but I could also see where it could help. I have to believe that I did not give it enough time before giving it home in a dark corner of the garage. .
There was also a long span of time where I tried to find who made, or had those hinges. Once I did find the info I was looking for, I was told of course, the hinges were proprietary and to basically take a hike. I had this idea to put one on a putter, so it would fit in my suitcase.
I have the 5 iron and pull it out once in a while to check my swing. My Orange Whip is a better training tool for me to help with tempo and swing plane.
It seems that I can swing the Medicus w/o it breaking and still have a slight out to in path. With the Orange Whip, I'm always getting my path on a better plane.
Both have merit but I use the Orange Whip more often.
