Medicus Hinged Club - Does it work? - Page 2

I could not agree with this more. I bought a weighted driver (the Momentus) and it changed my game so quickly it was ridiculous. It was the absolute best investment I've made for game improvement besides my first two lessons.

Take the money you were going to spend on a hinged driver and get a weighted one -

The Medicus 5 Iron was the first one to come out and still works quite well, especially now that it has the dual hinge.

The beauty of the Medicus Driver is you can hit balls with it where you cannot with the Medicus 5 Iron. Plus the Medicus driver comes with the bonus putter trainer which also works well.

You'll save a bit going with the 5 iron - $120 for the 5 iron vs $160 for the Medicus Driver.

I'm a firm believer in any golf training approach that gives you instant feedback when you're doing something wrong in your swing - after all, you don't wanna engrain bad swing habits, right?

The weighted clubs like the Momentus are good, however they don't give you instant feedback when your swing is wrong so you can still engrain bad habits.

Hope this helps a bit.

Play well.

Weighted or hinged, if your swing is already pretty good then these things won't do much.

I tried the 5-iron and it didn't really help my swing, but its a good training aid nonetheless. I was also hitting balls with the 5-iron.

I think it was worth it for me, but I paid nowhere near retail.

Before paying infomercial pricing, I would shop around. Ebay or Craigslist might be a good starting point.

::The entire posting above is assuming you are referring to the hinged Medicus club, and not the weighted one. If you are talking about the weighted one, ignore everything above except the "shop around" advice.::
+1 i agree with everything there. mine was collecting dust the past few years and i broke it out at the range a week or two ago and it has helped my game out yet again amazingly. heck, i don't even actually hit the ball i just take a few practice swings with it and my contact is better and the ball is going straighter. i absolutely love it and second the notion about looking on ebay (also try craigslist).

Here's a great Medicus Swing Trainer Video on the make or break #2: toe-up position.

... Do it! These tools are the bestthat money can buy! Regardless what handicap you are these clubs can help your game. There's no faking a bad swing when you use these. Just find the slow method of keeping your hands in the right position to keep the club from breaking and then ingraine it into your memory to have a perfect takeaway every time, also allows your tempo to smooth itself out and remove any jerks

But PLEASE BE WARNED DO NOT BUY FROM THERE WEB SITE THEY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR ALOT OF OTHER STUFF AND SIGN YOU UP FOR THINGS YOU DID NOT ATHORIZE AND CHARGE YOU FOR THEM IF YOU DON'T CANCEL WITH IN A CERTAIN TIME THE NUMBERS THEY GIVE TO CALL DO NOT WORK ... PLEASE PLEASE TAKE IT FROM SOMEONE WHO'S BEEN THERE THIS IS A HORRIBLE COMPANY

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 had the 5 iron years ago. My feeling that it surely will work if you let it work at a slow tempo. For me it made me use a slower tempo than what I naturally use. I could not be as consistent that way, so got rid of it.

DO NOT ORDER FROM THE MEDICUS WEBSITE!!!!!

 

I ordered a $9.95 video and it ended up costing me $27.00 by the time I got done fighting the charges!

 

THESE PEOPLE ARE CROOKS - DEAL WITH THEM AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!
