I guess I'd like to hear what you guys think about this as I don't see a whole lot of discussion about it.
I was curious so I borrowed one and spent some time fiddling around with it. As expected, the settings did have an effect but those differences were so minute, its more like a tiny tweak even when going from one end of the settings to the other. Like maybe moving the ball 10 yds left or right, or a little bit higher and lower. But that's just my own results.
But nowadays at the range, I see more and more people sitting on the benches tweaking their drivers rather than working on their swing. Most of these guys are either slicing their shots heavily or are just topping or thinning it badly. After a couple of those shots, they go open up the manual and start tweaking at different settings. Much like a sniper at a rifle range would do with their scopes. I find it somewhat..funny but at the same time, I feel bad for them. Here they are, trying to improve their game but instead, were sold a $400 magic stick with "adjustable desired results". So now they seem so distracted with messing with the club they're not even caring about their swing anymore.
That's just my observation so I could be way off. So what do you guys think? I can see how it may benefit better players trying to tweak their trajectory or so, but how about the rest of the players out there of other skill levels. Do you think it will help say, mid to high cappers with one of these or hinder their growth because they're so distracted with the settings that comes with it? I'd love to hear others' thoughts on this. And if you have one, how has it helped or not helped you?
