Swingbyte 2 $10 - sold out - wonder if it's not selling well

13 posts in this topic

I've heard it's not accurate. Wonder how sales are doing? http://www.att.com/accessories/specialty-items/swingbyte-2-golf-swing-analyzer.html?partner=LinkShare&siteId;=lw9MynSeamY-mZIAr.GT6sdHigfhTNa57A

For only $10 it seems like it might be worth a try.

Umm...I can sell you a bunch of other random stuff that does't work very well. ;-)

I've been leery of those devices in fear that self diagnosis could lead to undoing what I work on with my instructor. On my own I don't want to chase numbers, especially not numbers that may or may not be accurate, just continue what I do with him. I've yet to have a follow up lesson where my numbers haven't improved only working through the drills he assigned. The one very small full swing change we made was months ago and my guess is we won't move on until 2015.

Like what?

I would've given it a shot for $10. IIRC it had swing speed and if only that worked decent I would pay $10 for it. Why is AT&T; selling it?

If it's the original SwingByte, it's been replaced by the SwingByte 2 or higher. there WERE issues with V1 like the clip not holding very well, connectivity issues, and stuff like that

Have one and it really messes with me when I am practicing and decided to put it away. Trackman and a few other expensive devices are about as good as you can get but most of us cannot afford those things.   I tend to regress when I start relying heavily on numbers.  I focus more on ball flight and how far the ball goes.  If you learn the ball flight laws you really do not need these electronic gadgets, but they sure are fun to play with though.

I glued an old coffee cup to a mop handle. It's a really shitty ball retriever but...it's only $7. C'mon, $7, how can you go wrong?

I'll take it depending on how long the handle is but I want fee shipping.

It said Swingbyte 2. It's sold out though so I guess it's really neither here nor there, unless someone has it somewhere else for $10 it was probably a mistake.

I can make that work, but you'll have to buy two.

I paid about $150 for the original.  Used it for maybe an hour.  It didn't hold well, had connectivity issues, and was more of a pain than it was worth.

I probably would have bought game golf if not for my experience with the swingbyte. Instead I will wait until the reviews are all complete and the bugs worked out.

Fee shipping???  Is that where you pick whatever "fee" you want to ship it......

    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good. 
    • Sounds similar, I have never heard any one with this swing thought just hope it's not a one time fluke.It makes sense though if your belly button follows your club head all the way back and through with arms connected to body you can't get ahead or behind with your swing , if  that make sense , don't have to think of anything else it just happens naturally perfect rythem  and a nice draw I also visualize the swing path and try to keep club head on that path
