What’s the best swing analyzer on the market? Looking to take my practice sessions to the next level and would love some instant feedback. I’ve been looking at zepp, blast, garmin, etc but have no experience with any of them. What’s your favorite?

Skypro is my favourite because of groove mode. In case you don’t know with groove mode you can practice a swing move (length of backswing for example) to a very tight tolerance window and get instant feedback if you were or were not successful.

Very true but I’m talking more for practice. Getting feedback so you can get to the places the knowledgeable coach would like you to

What part of your swing are you working on?  As noted above, the SkyPro is great at many "macro" things, like length of backswing, club direction at the top (across the line or laid off)...that sort of thing.  For "micro" adjustments, like clubface angles on the downswing, it can be good, but is subject to proper (perfect or near-perfect) clubface alignment at address.

I guess a little of everything. Right now I need to fix the across the line position. It’s causing me to come from the inside so massively. Sounds like the SkyPro is the best for that?

The best by far will be Flightscope, TM, or Foresight HMT/GCQuad.    But few have (or want to spend) the money for those.

I can't say I've tried them all - but I have tried several of the lower cost units that mount onto the club or wrist/hand (SwingSmart, SwingByte, garmin etc...) - and I found all of them pretty much useless and a waste of money for face and/or path data. I was better off working with video and watching the ball flight.

I tried zepp and hated it. None of the other ones you mention seem much better.

You'd be better off doing an online or in person lesson.

I think the swing analyzers aren't really worth it.....I would do 2 things.  Get a lesson or two each year from a good coach....and get the mirror vision app to use with an ipad/iphone.  Work on whatever the coach is telling you for 3-6 months and get a follow up lesson and do it again.  The app helps you to monitor what you are doing and will show you that a crazy FEELING move really doesn't LOOK that crazy which in turn should help you implement the changes a little quicker.

I did buy the swing vision app. It is really good. The only thing that frustrates me a little about it is that it needs wifi which I do not get on the range. I try to make my phone a hotspot but that doesn't seem to work either. So I mainly use it at home since I can't get it to work on the range.

Zepp 1 seems pretty good, from the 10-12 swings i took with it.

Swing Byte is absolute garbage. There was some decent feedback from putting though, but not that reliable.
