I think there is enough here to make practice more pointed and enjoyable.
Totally agree. Although I havnt been able to get it out on an actual practice green yet there is a lot to look at. BUT, you dont have to look at everything. You can pick out a stat that you are working on and specifically single it out over the others and concentrate on that. Its actually a really nice tool. But like anything, you have to have the patience to use it and use the data to integrate into your practice. Not saying its hard to use (its stupid easy) but some get bored or some dont like to practice period. Which is also fine.

I imagine you are going to have some fun with this. Even more so when you are able to start coaching your team up.
I’m surprised my backstroke tempo is slower than I realized. And irked.

I had decided to upgrade my Blast Motion sensor to the gen 3 to see how and if the new full swing would be worth the upgrade. Boy, is this worth the 75.00.

Provided the numbers are accurate this little sensor combined with your phone video can replace many of the cheaper options available for viewing your swing.

I take the sensor out to the range while using, but you could also easily use a home net or simulator.

The main idea behind this sensor is to work on tempo, but for me, I am using this as a complete self video analysis and improvement tool. This would be fantastic with a coach or instructor as you can go to the range, turn on a custom session for each club or change via woods/irons/wedges and you simply swing as many shots as you like. The sensor and video will only record each swing in a separate video for analysis. You can look thru each swing one by one and save, send to coach, place your lines and circles if you like and watch your progress.

Here are a couple videos I did. You can see the differences from a good shot and flight to a bad shot.

Good Shot

My swing speed is up and I stay down more on the ball. I have an issue of over rotation on backswing and too little rotation on the forward swing. I use way too much arms and not my legs and hips. This I believe breaks my wrists in contact losing speed and consistency I believe

You see as I lift up my body here:

Bad Shot

Here is a picture from the front view of what the analysis can look like. Drawing some lines. I am working on not swaying and keeping my head stationary throughout the swing.

Another great feature is comparing swing together. You can take any two swings and the system will match them in sync. You can draw your lines, list your areas throughout the swing that you want to have as stop points in the video like Address, Backswing, Power Area, Impact, Finish.

Here is a picture of the comparison

This is one fantastic tool for any trying to improve their golf swing. The price is amazing at 75.00 plus subscription of 59.95 if you want to draw lines and do some extra analysis.

If we had enough people if would be great to start a thread to help each other with video analysis. Breaking down areas of our wings to help us improve. You don’t need a Blast Sensor as any video would do, but this little tool would be an awesome way to go.
