    I have a question for anyone who actually owns the real thing:



    If you put the sticks down so that the are grips lined up straight, do the heads look like this?

    Basically, I am making a DIY set, and I want to know whether these should be make to the same TOTAL length, or rather if they should be made so that the CENTER OF MASS of each weight should be at the same length. So the lightest weight would be a slightly shorter club

    I have a very make-shift version but it seems like the weights are close to where they should be. My gamer M2 weighs 332 grams. Because I'm such a tinkerer, I have a ton of Titleist, scotty cameron, M1 and other weights sitting around. I took an old R11 Fujikura Motore shaft, put enough weights in a baggy and tightly duct taped it to the end. It weighs 282 grams, about 15% less than the gamer. I also have an old hogan persimmon speed slot driver with an apex 4 steel shaft. In its natural form, it conveniently weighs 376 grams, so 13% more than my gamer. Both close enough. I should be more consistent with the speed drills and should follow a routine, but I usually just take about 8-10 swings with the light, then the gamer, then the heavy, then repeat. I may do a few extra sets with the light to put an emphasis on speed.



    I have been doing a lot of golf focused gym work for legs, core, flexibility as well as power moves like ball slams. My gamer is 44.5" and comes in at D3. My avg ss with this has typically been 108-110 measure on a GC2 HMT. It used to be a touch higher but I was also playing my driver at 45". My ss last session average about 111. It's a positive sign given that the speed avg is up by about 2 mph. I should also point out, I not been trying to swing any harder but actually smoother and more in balanced which cal also have a positive effect. It's hard to tell whether it's from the leg/core strength training, flexibility, or speed drills, but something is having a positive impact. Going to stay with it, hopefully get more consistent with it as well and see what other gains can be made.



    At this point, I just turned 38, so maintaining speed is the real goal going forward but if gains can be made, even better!

    That Priest in his avatar and Richard grew very close over the last three years as he was a patient of Richard's father and he just passed Sunday morning. His name is Father Carlos and he sat with me when they gave Richard Last Rites and Richard's father asked Father Carlos to perform the Last Rites due to their relationship but he declined because he said "God has plans for Richard here on earth." It was incredible and I was a mess and don't really remember much except Richard lashing out with his arm and knocking the cross out of the Priest's hand and Father Carlos kept saying, "I told you, I told you....". Richard is crushed and I was going to do a little story in Richard's cancer thread. Thanks so much for your kind thoughts image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> Fondly, Madison

    For anyone wondering more info on the build. I bought 3 calibration weights 150,200,300.



    After drilling them 1.25" with a 9.1mm bit (Amazon) they each lost exactly 15grams of weight. So I ended up with 135/185/285 weights.



    I ordered 3 graffaloy pro blue 75 gram .350 shafts off RBG for $12 a piece after coupons. I tipped them each 1.5" to help keep them stiff. They have 4" of parallel tip in case anyone is wondering.



    I shafted them with Brampton 20/20 Epoxy (strongest stuff on earth) and Brampton shafting beads. I left some extra epoxy coming out of top where it meets the ferrule in an attempt to make sure the shaft was protected and wouldn't snap against the steel. I'd recommend using collared ferrules if you have them but I just went with what I had on hand.



    My normal driver is 347 grams total weight.



    My speed sticks came out at



    266 77%

    316 91%

    408 117%



    My heavy one I used a grip that was 10grams lighter than the others but it still came out a little heavy. I may have to drill out some weight in the future.

    So once cylinder of washers and then add washers. Epoxy them onto the shaft and then add additional washers to get it to the right weight.



    180-200-220



    10% lighter, even weight, 10% heavier



    The -10 will be quicker than gamer speed, even weight will be slightly faster and the +10 will be slightly slower

    Why did this topic go off on making these at home to save $90? THe set is only $200.. SS up 4mph after 3 weeks...
    Like a lot of topics, if it stayed true to the subject or question asked, it would be half of a page and 9-12 posts/responses, if that.



    I think it's pretty cool for guys to share their DIY projects and their experiences, like Albatross, Ago and Kabir.



    $90 is a lot to some guys-



    That's 2-3 rounds of golf



    "Only" $200???



    That's a driver for some guys and for others a putter and even a set of used irons....



    Congratz on a the 4mph pick-up!!



    Nicely Played👍

    My total spend is gonna be around $75. Would be even cheaper if I used washers. I've probably spent $500 on all of my clubs together, so that is significant!

    I've been seeing a lot of Instagram posts of this training system. Thoughts? What's the difference between this and an Orange Whip or a SKLZ Gold Flex besides the 3 different weighted clubs?!




    Visited the guys at Superspeed a couple of weeks ago, their base is down the street from me, and they explained to me some of why the system works. I thought it was great because I did get more speed, I got up to about 113MPH (not bad for an old man). But the key is the weighting of the system for the brain to pick up and understand the ability to go faster. A couple of things, is you need to be healthy to do it. Any injuries and it's not a good idea. Also it requires a lot of other really good mechanics (use of the ground, etc...) to make it happen, or I could see it being detrimental. The number one things that worries me with any speed training is the body accepts forces and torques in certain ways, and while trying to go crazy fast, people will lose these correct motions and end up getting hurt. But definitely worked for me on that day, although I will also say it didn't translate to yards, because i lost control of the club.

    Curious if anyone used solid round bar stainless to make tips rather than calibration weights? Can't find 150gram calibration weights for a half reasonable price in U.K. There's a custom fitter/clubfitter here in Ireland that makes and sells his own for a very reasonable price, it's more that I would just like to make them myself as I've no problem with the shafts and clubmaking side of it.. I was thinking of a frequency tip weight but they're expensive and my suppliers start at 205g so need something lighter..

    Could always use washers. It's actually the easiest way. I think I'm gonna do the calibration weight just so the final product looks cooler. But then again, they are going to end up needing grinding and maybe even lead tape, so may not look so cool after all that

    I was asking for the same reason rather than washers ha. Purely worried about how they'll look aesthetically even though they'll never leave the garage haha

    The Calibration weights I have are Chrome plated brass alloy. Holy cow do they spark if you strike the pavement accidently. It sent my dog running in a panic with all the sparks. I was working on the drill that requires a squat then legs open and then you drive hard down with your lead leg to get the extra whip at the bottom. Think I remember it being called the Tiger squat or something. Either way my 315 weight has some battle scars. You guys using the washers should try that plastidip used for tool handles. Might come out kinda cool or really dumb. Not sure until someone tries it.

    besides using collared ferrules if i had them, no not really. I'm very happy with the result. When my broken wrist is healed (march 1) ill be training with these bad boys every day hopefully.

    What's the point of the heavier club when overspeed training is using lighter clubs only.




    It will teach your muscles that they can swing a heavier object just as fast as the light object just that the duration will not be as long. There is a relationship between the weight percentages though. SuperSpeed golf talks about all the research they did to discover the weights then post it clearly on their website. good for us and bad for them I guess. More you practice the longer you can sustain the higher speeds. I posted a video on another thread showing how your fast twitch muscles will make the speeds go up then plateau then dip. Your goal is to make the plateau last longer before you fatigue. My speeds go from 108 to 115 then come back down around 110 mph. I can usually get 6 to 8 swings at 115 before it starts coming back down. That's coming from 105 to 110 to 107 when I started. I have peaks with the 315gr club hit 122mph and the lightest club hit 171mph. Its cool to see the peaks but the plateau speeds are where the money is at. At the end of my work out I will swing 5 times with the super lite club then 3 times with my Blue 315 gram club. If I rest a few minutes and hit balls with my 915 I can expect to see the same speeds as my last set. The heavy club will make your driver feel crazy lite and fast.

    You can use it without a Radar but you will never really able to tell if your progressing. You can get a Bel Swingmate on eBay for $30 but the SSR is better.

    I "think" you could really use almost anything to bring the tip weight up, washers, nuts and lead tape would work ok - with the added benefit that you don't need to drill out the weight.

    I have been doing a modified version of this over the last few weeks and, at least for me ,the radar is a necessity. There have been so many times I felt a swing was really fast and look down at the radar and it is relatively slow. Without that feedback it is hard to train your body to know what fast feels like.

    ^^^ this. I agreed 100%. Don't make one swing until you have the radar. You need a barometer to gauge and also push yourself. I use the radar a lot to experiment with different feels and swing keys. Try it.

    I have the cheaper red and white colored SS radar, but anyone know what might be causing the fact that my radar is consistently 7-8mph faster than a trackman reading of swing speed?

    I can obviously still use it to benchmark where I am at now and the differential/progress, and just continue to subtract 8mph to get to an actual reading but anyone else experience this?

    Red/White Radar is just fine. I've had this debate regarding swing speed on several other threads. Just remember Trackman "calculates" swing speed it doesn't "measure" it like a radar. Many things can influence Trackman, ie color of your driver or backlighting.



    Don't worry about any other methods of measurement. Use the Red/White Radar as your benchmark. It'll read +/- 2 of your actual speed. Don't pay attention to anything else...

    You literally couldn't be more wrong. Trackman is a radar. And a lot more accurate one than in the toy that is a SSR. Color of your driver is not influencing the reading. You literally have no idea what you're talking about. Clubhead speed is absolutely measured with radar launch monitors. It's not calculated.
