I did mine in the morning before my massage here at home. In the snow.

You had a massage in the snow?!?! 🤪

Starting on January 3 (because that's the Sunday), my intent with this topic is to have those of us with SuperSpeed sticks (or those of us who can get them by then) to band together, fill out a spread

So I did a bit of analysis of the Swing Speed Radar. Assuming the sensor is in the middle of the lower portion, it’s sensor zone should radiate out perpendicular to the face. The instructions say to p

Hey congratulations to @iacas, @phillyk, @DeadMan, @JuanTheGolfer, @MyLeftStrokeJustWentViral, @RhysPowell16, @NCGolfer, and @Lefty4lifewho all set new personal bests this week.  @JuanTheGolfer,

Hit my high of 115 today. Feeling like I turn back really far until I can’t anymore has helped my speeds. I tried some swings today where I felt like I was pulling down on the grip in transition, but it didn’t seem to work for me. Probably not doing the move right, especially when trying to do it in a max effort swing.

Hit balls today...got to 114 and 112 but the mean was around 109.  Both are up 2+ MPH from last week.  Probably going to hit some more tomorrow (high of 57) and not  over-swing and see how it goes.  Also might try and get on a trackman next week to compare numbers to another source.

Did my SuperSpeed at the range today. Hit 105, 104, 104, 101, 95 for my final blue swings. Hit 96, 95 and 95 with the driver. I had some weird readings with the radar where I would get a high 90s or 100 mph swing and the next would be 70. Not sure why as I was swinging in the same area.

Maybe the batteries are low. Or the sun came out from or went behind some clouds?  ... just guessing.

I just changed the batteries. I will double check them.

I get a handful of strange numbers with my radar device too (the blue/greyish sports sensor swing speed radar). I just ignore the obviously bad data. The other day I used the Mevo and SSR simultaneously, and they were pretty close for the most part but occasionally the SSR would be off by 8-10 MPH (both high and low) compared to the Mevo. I treat the Mevo as my reference because I know what I see on Mevo is more or less aligned with GC4 data from my lessons. Certainly would be nice if Flightscope could update firmware to measure swing speed independent of hitting a ball.

I wish I new the range and focal point of the SSR. They say 10”, but the radar has to be aimed from the device. I would guess it is a cone that projects from the center and is perpendicular to the face. So when tilted back, the detection zone must be there. Some of the training videos show it farther away than 10 inches.

Hit a new max speed today with the blue of 127. Was quite surprised by that because my lower back and legs were pretty stiff and tight from a workout yesterday.

Extra snapping power!

My five readings today were: 132, 133, 133, 133, 134. In that order. Weird.

Felt slow today, but was actually pretty good - 126, 127, 127, 128, 133 MPH. Moving on to protocol 3 next week.

Not sure if this morning was a break-through or a one-off.
 

I swung 114, 116, 123, 119, 114.

My previous best had been 117.

I went out and played 9 holes yesterday. 32 and sunny, not too bad, but definitely needed the handwarmers. My tee shots were pretty nice, 4 of 6 over 250 and max of 280 with driver. Hooked one into the trees and sliced one about 230. May have been getting some extra with the bounces and roll out, since the ground was still frozen underneath. Anyway, my swing felt strong and I think being on this protocol has helped.

My speeds are back up today after a dip. I had a video lesson and found out the drop of was a result of my setup getting worse. Now that I’m not stretching for the ball speeds are back to previous levels. Time to kick on 😃

Looking like @Daveje97 and @phillyk and @georgep need to get back on the horse, at least as far as updating the spreadsheet goes.

I lost my sticks and I have absolutely no idea how.  It’s maddening. But, I ordered a new set and will pick this up when I have them.

So I had some time at our indoor facility and Trackman.  I put the Swingspeed radar down to compare it next to Trackman to see what the difference in numbers were.  Had some interesting (and strange) results.

First I hit some 7 irons to warm up.  On trackman I averaged about 85 MPH but the Swingspeed was registering around 78/79...so it was consistently lower.

When I hit driver I was averaging around 102ish on Trackman but the Swingspeed radar was consistently around 110 or even higher.  I hit 105 on Trackman but topped out at 115 on Swingspeed.  I'd say that Swingspeed was averaging a little under 10 MPH higher with the driver but it was 6 MPH lower with the 7 iron.

Has anyone else seen results like this?  I was left slightly confused.  When I've done fittings in the past and been on Trackman I was normally in the 100ish range so my swingspeed is definitely up a little bit but not as much as I thought it would be.

    • Welcome back. I'll start with some easy ones here. 1) Get better camera angles. Having it slightly off makes it harder for everyone to see everything. https://thesandtrap.com/b/playing_tips/filming_your_swing This article is dated now, but just read the section about setting up the camera's position. Makes it way easier for the instructor to see what's going on. This will be key of course if/when you return to evolvr. Your instructor will thank me for bringing this up so he won't have to 🙂 2) Again, this is tough to be sure on because of the camera angles, but it seems like you have some freebee setup changes you can make here by moving the ball more forward in your stance and leveling out your weight at address. Your setup seems far too "stack and tilty" here. Try to be more 50-50. Using a mirror is the cheapest and simplest way to see this. It'll probably feel like you have too much weight on your back foot if you're doing it right, i dunno. No idea how this'll feel to you. Again though, the camera angle could be throwing me off on this. I'm not sure.   As for the swing itself, I assume your priority piece has to do with properly implementing more hip slide on the downswing and less excessive squatting. I don't want to get too wordy with this though, nor am I an instructor, so I'll just leave it at that for now 😄
    • Check out Laird’s third shot on 18. Quite impressive.
    • I know my left arm bends at impact, but I’ve asked and my instructor said not to worry about it.
    • You make it sound like 15 minutes and 25 tries is a lot. Lots of people spend hours on some bosses, myself included.
