    Keep Left Arm Straight with the GolfStr

    Need to start working on keep keeping my left arm more straight instead of bending it. Came across this little gadget tonight and never heard of it before. Might be a reason I have never heard of it but just wondered if anyone has messed with it. Start lessons this week so I imagine the Pro will help me out with my arm. Here's the site: https://www.golfstr.com/

    for $30 I'd try it. their "large" probably won't fit, though. it claims up to 14" forearms will fit... that puts me right on the edge. Golf companies just have no love for the big n tall.

    What do you do to build such big forearms? Lol.

    This is good find and can help with the left arm. But remember if the rear deltoid isn't stretched and limber this will promote a very rigid swing. You want to keep some fluidity to your swing. These elbow and wrist hindering devises sometimes lead to bad habits.

    it looks like this one doesn't actually hinder the elbow. if your arm is straight, you can feel the device touching your arm, near your tricep. If you bend your arm, the device comes away from your tricep letting you know that your arm is bent. It doesn't hinder the wrist for lag training, it works the same way as it does for straight-left-arm, though it does hinder wrist cupping if you use it to train that part of your swing. It *seems* like that would be better than the ones that just force you into proper position. Do you think it could still lead to bad habits? I have enough of those already... don't want to spend $30 to get more of them!
