    Best Training Aid at the PGA Show!

    According to Marcus Edblad, the SwingWing was the best training aid at the PGA Show this year. Who is Marcus Edblad you ask? Until 3 days ago, I had no clue. I was at the PGA Show, sort of introducing my SwingWing to the golf world, when all of a sudden this Swedish guy pulls over and starts talking up a storm with me. He say's he has seen my product, and the video at my website and he thinks it is a terrific idea. He tells me that he thinks the "Little One" (7 iron with a tiny club face) is the 2nd best product at the show... but for training to hit the ball further, the SwingWing is, in his mind, the best product at the show!!

    Lot's of stragglers were complimenting me on the SwingWing, so I was not terribly impressed. I asked him who he was and why was he at the show. He told me his name was Marcus Edblad and that he has a training academy in Sweden. He bought a SwingWing, and then told me he would be ordering between 50 and 100 per year going forward... another order! Then as a matter of courtesy and to acknowledge my appreciation that he is now a customer, I had a passerby snap a photo of us on my iphone. Can't really see the SwingWing too well, but what can I say.

    Three days later (Monday) I was going through cards from the show and came upon Marcus' card. I googled his name just to see what his credentials are, and it floored me what I saw:

    Marcus Edblad: Swedish Long Drive Record Holder - 432 Meters (oh, about 475 yards). 25 times top 10 on European Longdrive Tour. AN ANIMAL!!!

    So now you know who Marcus Edblad is, and although not a sponsor of SwingWing Golf, he now owns a SwingWing, and he is of the opinion that Wind-Resistance training works and the SwingWing can help any golfer add distance to their game. It's only $29.99 (only $19.99 until Saturday) at my site, and if you don't like it --- send it back for a refund of the cost plus shipping both ways. http://www.swingwinggolf.com

    I'll detail this more in my review (which will be turned in early next week) but this works on ALL clubs pretty well and not just on woods, hybrids, and irons.

    Thanks to all who have chimed in. And Hanks, thanks for testing the SwingWing. Yep, it can be used on any club, but the longer the club, the more resistance you will feel. And one other thing, try it as an Impact Ball replacement, a bunch of pros at the PGA Show thought it worked even better than the Impact ball, and you can let some air out of it for a perfect fit, no matter what your size. So that's what the pros were saying, I can't honestly say I've tried the Impact ball, or really used the SwingWing in that way. I just use it to warm-up before playing, and it if nothing else, it's certainly good for that. Chow for now. Dan from SwingWing Golf

    Yes, I ordered one this morning and will definitely provide feedback in the review thread. Primary use will be warming up on the first tee for those after work rounds.

    Also curious to see how it helps to feel the lag and hopefully build some additional power.

    Ripper, and all others. I have tried to keep up and work a blog or two, not to mention the retail and wholesale efforts that are so fun to engage in. I've decided to really have a go at this, the SwingWing, and in order to do so need to raise my price - effective Saturday - to $29.99. Why? So I can commit funds to brand it, and potentially have an endorsement deal. In the end of the day, the product may sell itself, but after 6 months trying myself, well I need to throw a lot more $$ at this to compete with the heavies. So Ripper, no risk if you're interested. Order one now and return it for a complete refund if it's not your cup of tea. I'll even send you the shipping charges back both ways, and I see you're in Mexico - yes? Shipping is only $7.49, my cost, if you checkout at my website. Why did I say "if", it's the only place you can order and have it shipped to Mexico! Just saying, in two days I need to change my price, it's a commitment I made with my wholesalers when I raised the price earlier this week. Even so, the SwingWing is worth $29.99 - no kidding.
