At first it seemed a little odd with the shape and we all thought with a windmill shape the thing would just spin around with the wind force from the swing( we were dead wrong). Easy to blow up, easy to get on and off the club, and just simple. We have seen, used, and tested so many swing speed enhancers and just nothing really warranted a true review. Others are bulky, odd, not very convenient, or just work the wrong muscles. There are a lot of options in the swing speed trainers but two of the major areas are weight and resistance. By far resistance training is better for the muscles we use in the golf swing, which puts this product ahead of swing weight training off the bat.
The method is simple, 10 swings on the 1st tee or on the range. That's all it takes. With the resistance of the SwinWing, it forces your body to make the correct motions through your swing. It forces your body to work in the correct manner, instead of flailing your arms about. While helping you find that correct swing, it also creates resistance, but not too much to help you warm up those muscles to make any swing feel effortless. We set up on our FlightScope Launch Monitor to put this to the test. 10 swings before the SwingWing and 10 swings after doing 10 warm-up SwingWing swings. I saw an average of 4.75MPH increase in swing speed after the SwingWing. Which was around the average of 5.2MPH gained for the whole lot of us. We are all always looking for that little increase in Club Head Speed, and to have a product that isnt so awkward to keep in your bag, do exactly what it says it does, actualy work, then that’s when you know you have a great product. If you dont mind blowing up spaceship looking objects while people gawk at you.
We found a few other uses we liked, When swinging the SwingWing, you can really track your clubhead path easily. So we were all able to make sure our swing was doing the right thing, which always helped us to make better contact (go figure). Everyone is looking for that inside-out swing, and the huge black star on the end of the clubhead really helps track that path to ensure you are following your desired swing.
Another use was a point of impact thing we were messing with. We saw that when we put the SwingWing up the shaft near our hands, in our swing we could find our release point when the SwingWing came flying down the shaft and made a "thump" as it hit the clubhead. So it also made us a little more aware of our timing. Not saying you guys will do this, need this, or work for you, just nice insight to making the best of use out of a product!
SwingWing also list a few other uses they find work well with the SwingWing and they are as follow:
All in all, this product does what it says and in some cases, it does more. Sure it is odd looking, but it works! Out of all the resistance swing speed trainers, I would say this is not only the most versatile, but also the best economical product. Do I recommend it? If you are in the market for a little pep in your step, yes! This should be a first choice in resistance swing training and I will continue to use this product for the foreseeable future.
