You coming down to Erie for that Edel bit? 🙂

Eventually, I will.   @tlazzol was impressed.   That's good enough for me. I believe that I'll purchase the Super Speed Golf before winter and work on it all winter.

5-10 is pretty common. I've had juniors add 20-22.

If you're gonna pay to get new ones (which I do recommend - if someone nicked or slightly cracked a shaft on a used one it could be a bad thing), click the link at the bottom of the site, if you would, please. I get like $5 and you pay nothing else, and then you buy from them so they have a record of your warranty, etc.

Sorry, brother. 

I couldn't pass up the thrift shop deal. If they crack, break or whatever, I'll click the link below. Of course I recommend everyone come and see you for an Edel fitting.

This is something that's on my list to get in the near future. I'm curious - what type of speed gains have you all seen from this? Are you looking at a 5 mph gain or more?

I went from 100mph to 110mph measured on both GC Quad and Trackman after about 3-4 months of doing the program last winter. 

The combination of the faster clubhead speed and getting into a driver that fits my swing has resulted in my average drive increasing 25 yds from 2018 to 2019 (240 to 265, and 275 yd average over my last 5 rounds)

I stopped (not quite sure why) once spring came but surprisingly I haven't lost any clubhead speed. I view this as a nice off season training activity to keep me swinging.

Sold! Haha. My current swing speed is right around yours (102-105 range), so even thought of an extra 10 mph is getting me excited.

Definitely something I'm going to do this offseason.

It is.

Cool. I have a vacation coming up in a couple of weeks so I'll probably wait until late September or early October and get it.

Swing speed radar also, yes?

Let's stick to the topic here please. It's not the club fitting or the facility.

Just use "iacas" or the link at the bottom of the page:


Contact SuperSpeed Golf if you have questions regarding your order or products.

I do ask that you also put the "iacas" coupon code in when you get to the order page, like this:

Thank you. If you buy this way let me know and I'll make you a Supporter here at TST for awhile.

Is there still a place to “apply coupon”?  I got to the screen where I’m entering payment info and didn’t see it yet.

I’ve had my SS sticks for about a month now. Did the protocol for only 4 sessions  right out of the box and put them aside until I finish a work project next month and have more time. Went from 106 avg driver swing speed to 114. 

Excited to see what consistent use will do.

I don’t think so. I think clicking the banner at the bottom does it for you.

I have the sticks in my shop, and the pro shop worker and myself were messing around to see what we can get to with the green.  I started the day at 119mph and I wasn't really trying to swing fast, just what my normal swing is. Then we went for it and I got to 139mph while he got to 146mph.  I wanted to get to 140 but I got tired.  It pumped me up a little bit because I hadn't been swinging fast for a while, and I think I found out why as I started getting into the upper 130's.  Need to feel the hands "release" more (I don't like that term but its hard to explain). Felt like the arms were trying to do too much and the hands nothing.

Tonight was my first time doing the protocol in 10 days due to weather, and was really surprised, hit a new  all time PR with the green club and it was in the last set of stationary swings at the end, not the step through swings. 

I figured for sure it'd take a few sessions to work my way back up but doesnt seem like I lost any speed, which might mean the current speed gains I have made have become my new baseline which is really encouraging to see.

Congratulations on your progress. That's awesome.

Ordered it today. Will work it into my regular workout schedule, shouldn't be hard to do. Looking forward to swinging faster and hitting more bombs 😎

Now you will out drive me by 80 yards??? :-P

I am going to start up again. I think my swing is in good enough shape. I will also make it part of my routine this winter.

Only when my ball lands on the backside of a hill and kicks forward 40 more yards. I can still see that shot in my head.

Too bad I only made par.

Since I got layed off from work I’ve been at the gym everyday.  I just put the sticks back in the car this week to start back up.  Usually I wait until January to start but since I’m out, gives me something to work on.

I've done it the last 2 years, usually just the first 2 protocols and it keeps my speed up plus slight gains.  I stop when the season starts so I don’t throw off my timing or tempo. 
I think maybe this year to try to get all the protocols done and see what kind of results I see.  Only thing is it looks like it’s a 52 week program which has me ending at my winter season.

Something to remember if you are using the blue or red “Swingspeed Radar”...

When swinging without a ball add 5-10% to the number on the screen to get a realistic number.  It’s in the instruction manual.

I just started up and was recording my baseline numbers.  They seemed low for how fast the sticks were moving.  I went out and got my driver.  Swung that and that was 10 mph less than I normally see when hitting balls on any radar.  
 

So again, add in the 5-10% and the numbers will be correct

You got a swing speed of 139 MPH?  Wow, mine is around 110 and questioned how much help this would be for someone like me.

    • Have been really focusing on my centered pivot piece and am starting to see pretty solid results. The two things that have helped the most are flaring out my front foot/not letting my knee collapse inward towards my right leg, and feeling like every swing stops when I'm at left arm parallel and the club is vertical. In reality the knee still moves down/in a little bit and the club still goes most of the way back, but centered pivot and strike have improved greatly. My head movement has decreased significantly compared to like 6-12 months ago, on most swings it doesn't go forward of its' starting position at all. Will start adding in the increased rotation piece that I worked on in my last lesson as well, and have started the Superspeed training again, would like to get my clubhead speed from 110 to 115 and would love to see some 170 ball speeds in a couple months. I have noticed that when I try to do a ton of rotation and opening my chest more through impact, the clubface tends to get very closed so it results in a lot of overdraws/hooks mainly with the irons. I'm sure my instructor can tell me why that is happening but was just wondering if that is a common thing and if anyone else has experienced that before?
    • When this happens to me, when playing alone and practicing, I'll gladly welcome the joining player.  But I always give them a chance to back out when I tell them I'm essentially practicing and I'm hitting a few balls on almost every shot.  Usually they join in on the silliness and we still strictly keep pace with the group in front.
    • 8 Dec in Iowa...  It was in the mid 40s....  Light wind. Today(the 9th)  it's snowing now with temps the next couple weeks in the 20s & 30s.  We're pretty much finally at the end of the year. Ended up playing 36.  91 and 91... that's rare...…. Especially for me..  LOL   Been struggling with my driver the 1st 18 and finally figured a couple things out towards the end of the 2nd 18...…  Of course at the end of play...LOL  Hopefully I can remember it in the spring.      
    • Lets go back to 2016, OSU versus Clemson, and why this is a different OSU team.  OSU Offense 2016 versus 2019 Passer Rating: 44th versus 5th Passing Yards Avg: 87th versus 10th Rushing Average: 17th versus 6th  OSU Defense 2016 versus 2019 Rushing Average: 19th versus 6th Passing Average: 1st versus 1st Passer Rating: 2nd versus 3rd The biggest issue with the 2016 team was an average passing attack with a vanilla inside zone read scheme (Urban's Base Run Plays). The issue came against AP Ranked teams in 2016. OSU's QB rating dropped from 147 to 125. The average dropped from 7.5 to 6.1. OSU could not push the ball down field. Specifically, against top defenses in 2016 the passer rating was sub 100. Against a Clemson team, who didn't have to worry about the top of the defense getting taken off, they could condense the field. Basically OSU was playing in the redzone the entire length of the field.  Compare this to 2019, against ranked AP teams, the rating did drop, but its still at 177. OSU's average yards didn't drop, they are pushing the ball down the field very efficiently. If you look at the top defenses they have played this year, the passer rating was above 170 three times and still above 147 the other two times.  This passing game, at it's worse, is as good or just slightly better (since the average is higher) than the 2016 OSU team.  I will still claim that the OSU defense in that 2016 game balled out. They held Clemson to 75% under their normal scoring potential (points per play). If you consider that Clemson ran 85 plays to OSU's 56 plays, the score should have been in the mid 40's.  I go back to my previous post, in terms of getting sacks. That 2016 Clemson team didn't need to use a linebacker to get sacks or tackle for loss. They had three DL who had more than 6 sacks. The top two in tackle for loss were DL. Compared to the 2019 Clemson team, their primary sack guy is a linebacker. They have no DL guys with above 6 sacks this season.  Kinda why I don't foresee a repeat of the 2016 game. They are completely different teams. You have a current OSU team who passes the ball WAY better than the 2016 team. They can stretch the field extremely well. This current Clemson team don't have three world beaters on the D-Line like that 2016 team. 
    • Shot a 96 at The Honors Course. 141 slope from the 6400 tees. Probably the toughest golf course I've ever played. Classic Pete Dye. No bailouts, very penal. A few holes with OB or water on both sides. Gust of wind around 15-20 mph. Tough conditions with a stretch of 4 holes with wind directly in our faces.  Despite the score (16.9 handicap), I am ok with my round. Back 9 I had 5 pars and a bogey with an 8, 8, 7. If I can clean up some errant play off the tee and stop short siding myself on elevated greens, it gives me confidence that I can play any course pretty well.
