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

I’ve just reviewed the spread sheet. Just to check is it driver swing speed you want to capture? And do you want it before or after the speed training? 

Driver, before. The third column.

What are folks doing for a warm up for this? I am having trouble getting loose the last couple of sessions. It’s cold a raw out. I’ve been doing active stretching followed by some of my drill work. When I feel warm, I do the SuperSpeed Phase 1. 

Also, @iacas, what Mach 3 training device are you using? I may try that as well.

I was messing around with a buddy today swinging as hard as we could regardless of contact. Max driver speed was 131mph, and green speed stick got to 140mph (using super speed radar). Most driver swings were around 126/127mph. Honestly couldn’t believe the numbers. Not sure if I can improve on that. What felt like normal driver swings in the beginning were 118mph. At the end of the session, I tried to slow down and go for contact, and hit a good one at 123mph. I wouldn’t expect to keep that but if I could swing normal and get 120-122 consistently, that’d be awesome!

Remember, we start January 3.

For those of you who don't have initial speeds posted, let's get those in there ASAP.

I'll be at the range tomorrow and I will be recording my averages. Those are the numbers I will be using for my baseline.

Sorry I meant for the med and max columns each session not the start one. I asked the question poorly :-(

I assume it’s driver swings after doing the training each day.  Or it could be the speed from the medium stick during the training?

It is the max green stick and max driver hitting a ball.

The link on the very first post in this topic isnt working for me either, but the one @iacas posted on Dec 31st worked for me just now.

I do have a question and maybe I missed it when I was quickly catching up in this thread, but I'm a bit confused which swing/colored stick is the one that we should be recording and entering in the spreadsheet for Days 1,2,3. (I get that Column C is the baseline driver speed before starting the program)

The link in the first post worked for me. The image was broken, though, and so maybe you clicked the image link instead of the link to the spreadsheet. I re-posted it, but also, it's here:

Just bookmark that link. Should work forever.

Measurements are with the blue stick, the medium one. Green is light, red is heavy.

Before: 118 median, 123 max.
After: 122 median, 129 max.

I think this is incorrect. It should the blue stick speeds, correct @iacas?

Yes, measure with the blue.

Anyone who measures with the driver hitting a ball, bold your speeds. I’ll add a note to the first post later on.

Okay I am confused about the protocol and posting.

I posted my average driver speed.

What is Before and After        Med and Max?  Step by Step how is this determined.

Do I do a series of swings with the Blue Stick BEFORE I start the Level 1 Protocol and then after I am done.  How many swings for Med (which I assume means average)?    HELP!!

    • I played as a 2 man in a pretty big local tournament that gets top flight guys. The course was set up long and tough, but weather was good. 1st day =X 2nd day =79 I hit the ball really well both days and would’ve shot in the 70s both days if I didn’t take an X on a hole. I didn’t know where to hit the tee shot, so my captain gave me a starting line hit the ball 15 yards right of the start line- quality drive, captain says that’s not bad, you can get home from there ball was lost on an overgrown hillside and the team was in good shape, so I sat in the cart instead of holding up play i had 50 yards of open fairway to the left thanks captain  Putting was bad but, even with a 5 putt (4 of them were within 3.5 feet and I tried on them all) - I scored pretty well and made a handful of birdies on a tough setup.
    • My biggest drop in handicap over two years was going from a 9.9 to a 3.9. How? I stayed out of the shit.... I called the zoo... I finally cured my hook (It came back again, then I was able to cure it again like literally today.)    @iacas will be the first one to tell you or you can tell for yourself, in My Swing Thread... my swing looks like an unfolding lawn chair. (I’ve taken literally four lessons in my 24 years playing golf). I can understand complex, like the number A# that Erik has on this site. I’m trying to learn to play golf with mostly a three-quarter swing. It is however a process. In the meantime, I aim away from the shit (darker zones), try to get on or around the green, and don’t do anything stupid when I do get out of position... basically “miss” straight... 
    • Yep. Jack was never so lucky to be gifted a major. Those club pros gave him their best every tournament in the early years! 
    • Started with a 5 putt, but turned it around. I’ll find the topic for the better details lol
