    Power Angle Pro

    Well as some of you may now i am finally learning the proper way to hit a golf ball this off season after 15 years of self taught techniques i've had some tough times with parts of the swing getting things fixed from years and years of swinging the wrong way... During my last lesson we did quite a few things since my instructor is gonna be away for 2 weeks.... we changed my grip worked on getting my back swing straightened out ( which although is easy i have been struggling with) and making the first move of the downswing. A lot for me to think about during my swing. i have found that doing drill after drill has helped but its hard to incorporate all of these things and make the most of my training time. So at the end of my lesson my instructor brought out this training aid. The Power Angle Pro... it has a training grip to make sure you have a proper grip with 2 white V's painted on it to make sure your V's in between your thumb and pointer finger are aimed properly. As you make your shoulder turn there is an arrow on the one part of the shaft that is supposed to point down your target line to make sure you are coming back on a good plane. As you continue your shoulder turn and make your wrist hinge the bend in the shaft should rest on your upper arm. this happens when your left arm is fully extended and straight. you then can make the first move downward and keep the bend against your upper right arm to make sure you don't release the club to quickly. this also helps you get "in the slot".... after you "make contact" and release the club the one bend should be 90* to your target line and then as you finish your swing the shaft comes to rest on your back... I usually don't buy to many training aids like this. but i felt like this training aid has so many things i can work on with it it was worth the money. and something even after my swing change down the road i could use to get my swing back on track if it gets a little out of wack. I got it for $70 bucks and it included a dvd which is only like 3 minutes showing everything i just wrote out. i plan on using it during my down time at work and when i practice my drills for my lessons im taking. it seems to be helping me get a lot of different things down and making the most of my practice time. i have been spending a ton of my time working on drills its been difficult to get some things fixed and im hoping this helps me get most of my swing down and drilled into my thick head. Give you guys some more feedback after i get some more use out of this during the next few weeks.... Here are some pics i took...

    That seems rather complicated. Plus, it violates my one rule of training aids - they have to be able to fit easily in the golf bag. Still, it might be useful for a number of swing faults. Looking forward to your thoughts on this.

    Really been using this a lot the last few days. I think its got my back swing down and me getting in the slot on the down swing. i dunno how my grips gonna be when i grab a normal grip (havn't had a chance to get to the range) but my golftec lesson should show if this has helped my swing, Looking forward to seeing some video and hearing what my instructor has to say. but i think its been helpful i figure if i do enough reps with this ill get this swing change down yet. have a write up tomorrow after my lesson letting you know if its helped me or not.

    Just got back from my Lesson and watching my swing after using this for the past few days. And i have to say im pretty impressed with the results. I was a lot better with my back swing and my grip and i was getting down into the slot better than before. I was going back to my over the top downswing and still going a little to far in my backswing when i started my normal swing speeds (i swing my 5 iron 115-120 mph) in the video. BUT if i took a slower swing i was seeing much better results. after talking with my instructor he said quicker speeds hide flaws and i should keep doing my drills slower and as many times as i can and i will see better results. With me doing the wrong swing for 15 years i wasn't expecting a perfect swing after 5 days of swinging this aid. I was happy with how my swing progressed this week and we sharpened some stuff today and ill continue to use this this week and a couple other drills to help me stay on plane and make the right wrist hinge and pivot. But all in all i am impressed with the results so far and with the amount of times i'm going to have to use this to instill the proper swing into my head after doing it so long the wrong way i def think ill get my moneys worth out of this. Just wish i would have found it for half price like Dawgdaddy did! lol

    Thanks for the review buddy, based on your observations, and the observations of your instructor, I just ordered one myself. Of course, I ordered the one for half price
