I've seen a few people at the range I go to use it but I haven't yet myself... would like to find out more about it though.

I've seen some ads for it, but I haven't tried it. If it can help me shoot straight, I'm all for it!  Please let us know anyone that uses it if it works!

it's on my list of 'to-buys'...guy at the range had one a few weeks ago. took a few swings and it was quite a unique feeling. i've always had an issue with creating lag and a few swings with this puts emphasis to it, as long as you keep good posture/spine angle.

My golf instructor uses one for himself. Keeps telling me to go get one, but ive been procrastinating and thinking about getting the tour striker...

He hasn't done me wrong yet, so I should probably listen to him and go get one.

Looks interesting, but i don't know if it's worth 100 bucks.

One could probably make something very similar with a few simple items at home or found at some big store of random stuff. The Orange Whip is similar to the PBS in that it is designed to help sustaining the wedges through the swing and hit down on the ball.

I believe the Orange Whippy is sort of a take off on the Whippy Tempomaster. I've always favored the Whippy - you can actually hit balls with it. I've got a driver, iron, and wedge. Great for grooming tempo and keeping lag.

Price is my issue too.  If it was $50-75, I would already have one.  I'll probably end up with one anyway, but $100 for a relatively simplistic training aid seems stiff.

I have one.  I love it.  It IS worth the $100 if you actually use it for training and not just a way to loosen up before a round.  I would be surprised if anyone could create something on their own with stuff lying around the house.  I have a the Speed Stik that Vijay endorsed for the longest time and the orange whip is hands down a better swing aid.  It'll help everyone from a beginner to a scratch golfer.

Hey gopherNut thanks for the info. I had the opportunity to swing one the other day. Felt good. Where does the whip help you the most. The physical traning or the tempo part. Does it actuallly help with the basic swing?

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
