Does the Orange whip promote a certain type of shoulder movement? Level vs. a tilted movement?

Thank you for the kind words, both Mandy and I are excited about our future with The Sand Trap.

As far as what kind of shoulder turn it promotes: it does not promote either one. It will help with your flexibility, completion of your turn and the sequence of motion coming out of the backswing into the downsing, however whether you are flat or tilted does not necessarily matter, just that you swing in good balance, rhythm and tempo. Does that answer your question?

In response to an earlier post on how it works, there are a few drills that we promote however the most common one is this:

Set up with the Orange Whip in the address position hovering it just above the ground. Start making small swings back and forth very slowly. As you get comfortable, allow the momentum of the Whip to carry you up into your full swing. Keeping the Whip in a constant motion from one swing to another, make about 10-12 swings in repetition waiting for the momentum at the top of the backswing and on the follow through. As long as you can stay balanced, you are improving your tempo, core strength and flexibility, balance, footwork and sequence of motion.

Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Dan

Hi! Seems to be a good alternative in comparison to what's out on the market already. How can I contact you for overseas distribution opportunities? Thanks, Nave

Don't we all ...

I've owned the Whip for over a year - was not using it as intended and had put it away. After seeing this thread, I went back to their website, reviewed the suggested plan, and used it this weekend on the range. I was lacking the gradual buildup to the swing and having the sensitivity - the feel - to what the Whip does - so I slowed it down and built up the momentum, felt the wrists, feet, etc. If you're too mechanical and want more sensitivity and trust in your ability to relax during the swing - the Whip does it. I also think it shows you where you build up speed - the so-called whip - you've got to be sensitive to what it does and try not to overpower the Whip. It does more, but I'll explore its uses as I go through their site.

This seems similar to a drill I heard about using a thick nylon rope... does this tool mimick that same concept, and if so, how does it improve upon it?

Yes, the concept is similar to the heavy rope swing drill, to assist the user in sequencing their arms and body. But the differences are the Orange Whip Trainer has a extremely flexible shaft, but not a collapsible material like a rope. Also, the Orange Whip has a weighted orange ball where the club head would be and a counterweight on the butt-end of the grip. These unique characteristics of the Orange Whip allow the user to swing the devise back and forth in repetition, therefor developing an on-plane athletic golf swing much more effectively than a heavy rope.

I am reviewing the product as we type this.  I'll be doing a full review after thoroughly testing it out, however, I will say to this point I am impressed with what the product does.

Are you testing both the Whip and the Peel or just the Whip? Looking forward to your feedback.
