I wish i had a way to monitor this. Been meaning to get on sss, and this would be the perfect time. I may pull the trigger on this (some sort of launch monitor). Consider me a maybe.

For someone without the SS sticks or radar, is the best/cheapest radar option probably the PRGR from the SS website (it's $150 if you buy the SS sticks at the same time)? I know you can get a radar for ~$110, but I think the added functionality of the PRGR is worth $40.  Anybody know of a radar $<100?

The SS sticks seem very worth it at $200, but the extra $100 - $200 for the radar kills me.

For just doing the speedsticks, is there an accuracy advantage? 
I have a device that handles the added functionality. I'm considering getting something just for the speed sticks.

If you have something that measures swing speed (without hitting a ball) why would you get something that does less and just measures swing speed?

Maybe I mis-wrote what I meant. I have something that does all the "With a ball" stuff I need. To get swing speed, however, I have to hit a ball. So, I was asking about if the PRGR is better than the Sports Sensor Swing Speed Radar? Because I would like to have something that I can use without a ball. I want to participate in this challenge. I'm weighing the best options to do so.

I have the speed sticks and the radar that came with them. I haven't used them in a while so maybe I'll use this to get me back into using them.

First post on the site and it’s here. I’m in for this. I’m really motivated to work on my game this winter and speed sticks were part of my planned routine. Glad to have an accountability group to keep me on track.

This arrived yesterday.

Looks like I'm all set to participate. I am 100% in for this.

Nice!  I've got that one too.  Looking forward to this as well.  I've been doing the protocols off and on  for a while, but this accountability and tracking will be fun and helpful.

Great idea... I have my Speed Sticks, Swing Speed Radar and once a month I can get on Trackman to check how it measures my speed.  So I am set, AND I have some MACH 3 tools like the JetStick. ..  Looking forward to getting better together.

FWIW I'm going to mix in some Mach 3 stuff myself. I'll still measure 3x a week with the SuperSpeed sticks, though.

Is the Mach 3 program any good? Also, does it need space? In the winter, I can only do Super Speed outside now. I have no room indoors.

I don't know yet (I wouldn't have gotten it if I had many doubts - I think it's going to be great), and yes, it needs a lot of space for all of the rope stuff.

    • That's a very cool project, while challenging for the best players it does look like it has other options for the less talented when the winds are kicking up which is probably most of the time.    
    • BillChao, interesting point on the blind shots on the 'famous holes' course. We have a course here in Maryland called Renditions I have been meaning to play setup with famous holes as well. I'll need to take a look and make sure I'm not getting into something that isn't fun unless you've played it several times before.   I played a lot of golf today making the most of the last weekday of my week off. I played 2 balls on my 9 hole home course  in the morning and scored a 48 and 53, so close to my first under 100! I would have made it I believe, I got hit into on the last hole and whiffed two pitches that I'd been money on all day setting up a 2 putt. I had several 1 putt holes. Playing every day this week has made a tremendous difference in my putting....probably won't last once I go back to once a week golfing but it sure was nice making 7 and 8 foot putts on multiple holes.   My daughter had after school plans so I played 14 holes (they cut us off at 5:45) at Walden Country Club in the afternoon. Was paired with some really nice guys, my performance off the tee was terrible but I made a lot of good approach shots and my putting was really good. The course was packed so for pace of play reasons I didn't keep score, we did a bunch of tee-off rehits and drops to significantly better locations to keep things moving. I didn't feel tired at all but I wonder if some fatigue was leading to my terrible performance off the tee.   Stonewall Country Club tomorrow for the first time, looking forward to it but the layout might be tough since I'm not much of a distance guy. I may checkout 2nd swing golf for a new 3 wood in the morning...mine is a early 90's design and I wonder if something newer might help when I need distance. Hope everyone has a great weekend playing.
    • I've quit after 9 because of slow play.  I have never quit midround and don't believe I ever will.  
    • I purchased and am reading Lowest Score Wins. Great book so far!  Looking forward to practicing this weekend! Thanks!
    • I identify as "golf geek" thank you very much. 😉
