  • Amazon is selling the Skilz trainer 40” version for $37.00. I just ordered one. The OW is over $100.00 for basically the same thing.

      That’s a different item.

        I found that the Skilz was not exactly the same. Less whippier, not as counter-balanced. But it is hard to justify the higher price! I eventually found an orange whip on sale & bit the bullet. I've been pretty happy with it. One thing I noticed is that after I started using it, I started to hit draws (especially with driver & FW woods). Before the OW, I could count on one hand the number of draws I hit.

        • Anyone use the Orange Whip wedge? It seems interesting and I'm curious to know how well it actually works for people who have used it.

            No, but I just ordered a GForce wedge which seems to be a similar product (seems more popular in UK) so I’ll post my thoughts after I’ve used it for a while

            • Good warm up and tempo tool with multiple uses - you can also use it to stretch before a round.

              • I just received my SKLZ Gold Flex today. Can’t wait to start using it. Unfortunately I got the 40” version instead of the 48” one. But it still should do the job.

                  • Orange Whip is a great warm up aid. It’s probably in my head but I feel like it helps me maintain a good transition from back swing to through swing as I begin to warm up with my clubs. I use it in the drive way at home. One more thing the neighbors can talk about. I leave it in the bag most of the time. It just works.

                      I need to get back to using mine more frequently. I’ve been rushing my downswing. It is definitely a good tempo trainer along with a warm up tool.

                      • My wife got me one for my birthday. I used it to loosen up before I left the house yesterday. 20 mins later, and my driver still felt like a toothpick on the first tee.

                          • I really liked mine when I first got it. I think it helped a lot in my timing. I have gotten out of the habit of using it the last few years. I think maybe I should dig it out and start making swings each night again. I don't like using it before rounds since it makes my driver feel super light.
