Orange Whip - Worth It Or Skip It?

I can only speak for myself, but I am starting to see the benefit of using the OW every day. My issue is that when I get fast in my transition, I tend to flatten out and any number of bad things happens when I do that. With the OW, there is simply no way to rush the beginning of your downswing...and you really need to lead with your lower body to get the whip going. The way it is weighted, you just can't be too handsy.

Do a search. Much love on the OW.

On my mobile so I apologize for not going into depth but I love the orange whip...it's fantastic as a warm up device and when I'm practicing it really helps me. Once I'm in a groove with the OW I know I'm going to make good swings, if I start going bad I just go back to the whip.

OW has really helped me with my tempo, and driving in general. Its a bit overpriced, IMO, but does what its supposed to.

FWIW, I'm also a big fan of using it to warm up on the first tee, for those days when you don't time or access to a range. It loosens up my "swing muscles" and puts a good swing feel/thought in my mind for the round.

One of the best training tools on the market IMO. Instant feedback.

Two this with this you will notice:

1. This will tell you instantly if you get quick.
2. This will not let you stop at the ball, it will make you swing all the way through to your down range side.

I bought one for myself a few weeks ago and after just a couple of days I liked it so much that I bought another one (the Hickory model for my kids). So far I'm really liking it. I try to use it at least once a day and it seems to be helping. I've been a lot more consistent off the tee since I started working with it anyway. Only time will tell if it's worth it in the long run.

I love mine, really helps with tempo and release as others have said.
I'd really like to get the "iron length" to compliment the full length one I have.
Great tool.

I like it from a tempo standpoint, but ever since I've gotten mine my 5yd draw has turned into a 25yd draw lol. Distance has definitely increased as I now know how to use lower body to increase club speed(the sound of the whip lets u know when you're getting faster) Never miss right anymore though, which is a huge plus.

I use it mostly for warming up and stretching out. I think it is a good swing-trainer but I'm bad about using it consistently. Not sure it would help with flexibility unless you used it daily. I always make great, full swings with it, but can't seem to make such a nice, full swing with my actual driver! I'm too stiff!

I was given one a gift(the original full length version).
I only use to warm-up before a round when I don't have time to hit balls (like in my weekly league).
It is absolutely perfect for that.

I truly think this thing has saved me strokes on the early holes as I feel grooved in and loose by the time I hit a ball.

Since I got it as a gift, I cannot comment on whether it is worth the price, but I will say that if I lost mine, I would buy another.

I've got one. I use it as a warm-up every time I hit balls, and before I tee off when I get to play. I really like it, but I could see how certain golfers wouldn't benefit. If you have a tendency to hit the ball from the top by yanking the handle, it should be of immediate benefit. Since that's basically me, I find it to be very helpful. If you already transition well, it might not be much more than an expensive warm-up tool.

I'm 6 feet tall and have the driver length one. If I could do it over again, I'd buy the intermediate sized one. I'd rather have something that simulates an iron.

The OW is huge for me in knowing if I dont use my lower body to initiate the downswing. I can most certainly feel a major difference in terms of how loaded the shaft is and how fast its "whipping" when I really concentrate on my lower body to start the downswing

[quote name='Jacob Mac' timestamp='1378239568' post='7792311']
I like it for warming up and staying loose. It has not helped my speed at all. But it does help me keep my lower back a little more supple. As far as tempo goes, it helps. But you still have to focus on translating the feel from the orange whip over to the real thing.

Indeed, big difference between a much lighter club and much less shaft loading.

In 2012 something like 47 of the top 125 PGA pros used an Orange Whip.

The whip allows me to feel where my arms are in relation to my hips. Simply a great product for me. I don't use every day but I use it several times per week and prior to teeing off.

Have one and love it. Believe me, I have EVERY swing aid/trainer and this is the only one besides the swingyde and tour striker that didn't immediately go on ebay. It really helps with my tempo. I swing it sometimes with my eyes closed before a round to try and get my tempo. I swing it lefty sometimes just for fun, but it always makes me sore the next day.
