  1. 1. How often do you use video to breakdown your swing on the range?

    • Every time I go to the range
      8
    • Every once in a while
      28
    • After I have a lesson with my teacher
      9
    • Never
      38
    • Only if I have a friend there to video my swing for me
      21

I gave a couple away to some friends. One had been using an Otter Box iPhone case and clipping the phone to an alignment rod. I think he'll like his ProtoSports Holster a lot more. :)

Just curious ... when I went to order mine the choices were black and white, however, on the picture attached to the reviews, it looks like its lime green.  Are there more colors available now?

The only colors available are black and white. We were doing a green clip for a promotional before the clip was released on a campaign site called kickstarter. The campaign wasn't funded so there were no green holsters produced.

Mentioned this morning on Sirius XM 93  "Tee'd Off With Brian Katrek".  Check it out! They will get the name right eventually :)

Used the iPhone holder on the range while on vacation last week.  It was very easy to use.  (I had to buy alignment sticks that had points on one end so I could stick it in the ground.)  I set up the phone and turned on started shooting video.  I played the video back just before falling asleep and thought the feedback I got from watching my swing was really useful.  I instantly saw a couple of things to work on.  The simplicity and convenience is really nice.

You shouldn't be. Sales figures are pretty much a matter of public record, as are market share #s.

Why don't you tout a success story or tell us something more about the product instead of just bumping your thread with the website?

. iOS market share is around 20%, most people don't have an iPhone. 20%<50%. Like I said.

I don't.... I have a prepaid Nokia that barely takes photos.  If I wanted to video a golf swing, mine or a friend's, I'd use my Canon 60D mounted on my Vanguard tripod - it does full HD video.  Something I never want to see is my swing on video - it would probably screw up my game for life.

Samsung sells more phones than apple and there are more android os phones sold then ios phones. That alone tells me most people don't have iPhones. Some people still have basic phones and a few have no phone at all. So this is not a product for the "golf world". It's a product most golfers can't use.

And that's a lot of people.

Like I said.

(I never said "most" - you did, and obviously we don't only post threads here that appeal to people with 51% market share or more).


P.S. Apple is 34% of smartphones in Q2 2012.

Anyway, this stuff is OT.

There are a lot of great apps out there for all of the phones that help golfers video their swings! Using these apps, you can slow your swing down frame by frame and draw lines.

This is using one called Insta- Pro and it is being used by a bunch of the guys on tour. Obviously you can break it down further frame by frame but these are a couple screen shots I took.

If you are trying to decide if the iPhone is capable of taking great video here are some good examples. I think it is awesome. All of these were taken using the Holster.

I am happy to announce that we have several players using the ProtoSports Holster on the PGA Tour as of the PGA Championship. It has been a big hit with the guys, not only from the golf swing aspect but also there are a some guys using it to monitor putting paths and skid rate of the ball on the putting green. Since you can attach the phone all the way to the bottom of the stick in the portrait setting you can video as close to the green as possible. Pretty cool stuff. Thanks for all the supporters here on The Sand Trap and all of the good reviews so far!
