3BAYS GSA PRO - anyone have it - Page 3
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
This is my experience with the 3Bays GSA last weekend.
A friend of mine recently purchased one, and we gave it a go at the range. From what I can tell, the reads are quite accurate albeit the small stature of the device. It recorded every
swing we took and was the process is reasonably fast for a bluetooth connection.
There are quite a few parameters measured. I find the Club Head Speed, Ball Speed and
Swing Path most useful and easiest to decipher. On the contrary, parameters such as Consistency and Tempo, were a bit hard to utilize for amatures like myself, unless a gold pro or a coach or someone with extensive knowledge of the swing was there to help me understand and best apply it to my swing.
I was also working on my driver as I tend to slice it quite a bit. With the swing path, I can tell that I maybe dipping and bobbling my head a little, as there is a sort of irregular"dent" on my downswing compare to my back swing. This, as I gather other information, affects the impact angle, and likely changed my square face at set up into an open face just before impact.
I do wish they tell you the impact angle/ face angle. It only tells you whether you have hit the ball with an open face, close face or square.
Overall, its a pretty neat device which you can carry around to the range or on the course. I like how it is inserted on the top of the club, rather than having something you clamp on the shaft. It does move after a few swings, so minor adjustment/re-positioning is need from time to time, but I was not bothered by it.
I saw such a mark and there is a mark on the grip, but the lineup is then based on how the grip was installed. Visually, this line to the club face would be perpendicular to the lines on it. So does the vertical line intersect with the line on the bottom of the club face or somewhere else? Or does it really matter??
I'm surprised there's no mention of the Swingsmart in this thread, from the research I conducted it seems the best product, albeit slightly more money than some of the others. It measures speed, tempo, face angle and lag and provides 3D view of your swing from a number of angles, it also has a training mudule that records swings without hitting a ball. I took the plunge a few months ago and was initially disappointed with the number of unregistered swings, obviously a bug which has now been fixed (almost) with an upgrade. The information transfer is pretty much immediate and the device is generally simple to use, but it is not perfect. Be interested to know what other users think.
Looked as several other units than the GSA and found they were all similar except as to how they are used on the club itself. It appeared to me that the GSA was the easiest to relocate which made it a stand out for me. I must confess that I was and still am concerned about the "insert process" and what the breaking point maybe. I would have like to see a screw type tip to get into the handle of the grip.
Any one heard of the tip breaking?
