Does anybody have any experience with this?  Saw it on the golf channel last night and I'm curious.

First red flag - You saw it on golf channel on a night time infomercial.

2nd red flag - Their infomercial website.

3rd red flag - Buried in the text of the website they actually wrote the biggest use you'll get out of this.

Your buddies come over for a barbecue or a game-watching party. You show them your Super Sonic X10 and propose a friendly competition. Everybody tosses in a buck or two and takes five swings – fastest swing wins the pot. Next thing you know, it’s 3:00 a.m. and you’re on the tee in four hours.

I've never tried it, and who knows, maybe it would actually work.  But I'm not spending my money on it.

You could have simply said, "I have no experience with this".  I'm just curious and looking for valid comments from WRX-ers who may have actually tried it or know someone who has.  Thanks.

I could have, but where's the fun in that?

Sorry for giving an opinion vs a review

Wasn't trying to bust any balls.  I was simply asking for comments from anyone who may have EXPERIENCE with this thing.

Seems to me like he was just trying to make a joke. Considering that almost everything that is advertised on the golf Channel is complete garbage, I thought his post was pretty funny actually.

This product is almost an exact copy of the speedstick, which has some pretty horrible reviews. I would guess it will also not be that useful

I agree 100% with everyone's general opinion on infomercial products which is why I was wondering if anyone here may have actually tried it.

Someone in my golf group brought one to the practice area before the round yesterday and I took about five swings with it.  It is currently priced at $119 which I think is a tad high.  I would pay $99 for one.

It seems to be a good warm up tool to groove your swing and release point.  I like the speed meter that shows your swing speed and the adjustable slider release mechanism.  I am skeptical of the infomercial claims on the website.  I think you are inclined to swing it more slowly to start with while you are loosening up.  The swing speed gains that are claimed seem exaggerated.  I started swinging at 88 mph and climbed to 99 mph after a couple of swings.  That does not mean that the device improved my swing that much.  It means that I loosened up.  It does help with the release point on the swing and the adjustable slider accommodates many swing speeds and tempos.

Someone with experience.  Thanks for the review!
