Overview: I have used Hot Stix Golf in the past and have always appreciated the quality of their work. Their attention to detail is second to none and they ARE THE EXPERTS in the industry. I obviously was only asking for a very small portion of what they do but, as always, they were eager to fulfill my request. Here's a little background on that request. I received a set of Limited Edition Black Titleist AP3s and wasn't getting the most out of the clubs. After talking to the team at KBS Golf Shafts they sent me a set of Limited Edition C-Taper Lite Black shafts (4-AW) to give a try. Now, like a kid at Christmas I wanted everything set up now so I could tee it up in 2 days at our friendly weekend skins game. I began calling around to a few shops near me and they all were happy to do it but wanted 3-4 days to complete the work. I talked to "Fergie" Chris Ferguson at Hot Stix and he said bring them up and we will do our best to get them done for you. I must point out others had said similar things but I knew the work would be perfect at Hot Stix. So, I drove by 4 other shops and delivered everything to their team. More on the outcome in a bit..

From Hot Stix: Fitting Services And What To Expect
Prior to the fitting the player will receive a questionnaire about their game and what their goals are. Upon arrival we will do a quick evaluation of their current equipment (loft, lie, length, shaft frequency and swing weight). During this time the player will be able to warm up on the range. When the fitting begins, we will have the player hit a series of shots to gather data on Trackman and determine baselines for the players swing and tendencies. At this time the player will then test numerous shaft and head combinations until the proper fit and set make-up is met. Measurements for club length, lie angle, grip size and weight will also be taken. Upon completion of the fitting the player will receive a detailed analysis of the fitted equipment along with a price breakdown for the custom build. Since everything we do at Hot Stix Golf is 100% custom, pricing is done based on each individual manufactures component (head, shaft & grip). Purchasing the fitted equipment is coordinated through the players personal club fitter and all clubs are built to spec by Hot Stix Golf at our corporate headquarters in Arizona.
Shaft Fitting Only - Got the right clubs? With a lot of today's modern clubs being so easily adjustable, sometimes just finding the right shaft is all you need. Let Hot Stix Golf Shaft Profile your swing to find the best shaft for your current and future equipment.

From day one, Hot Stix sought to utilize technological enhancements to create competitive advantage in all facets of its business. 
A passionate focus to independent R&D and club testing has positioned Hot Stix in a league of its own. Deploying proprietary fitting software and mastering the art of custom club building has also set Hot Stix apart. In everything we do, exceeding each customer’s expectations is Hot Stix’s loftiest goal.
Hot Stix serves serious golfers from company-owned locations throughout the country. Each location utilizes all of Hot Stix proprietary technology, has all the latest in available equipment and is managed by a Hot Stix certified fitter. All operational activities are centralized and are coordinated in the Arizona-based headquarters.
Hot Stix is committed to expand into new markets as meaningful opportunities are evaluated. The Company also seeks to establish highly effective partnerships with leading organizations serving the golf industry.

Now Back to our Review: As you can see Hot Stix Golf is serious about getting golfers fit for every club in the bag from putters to drivers. They utilize the latest technology including their own proprietary fitting software, Trackman, Foresight and even have a Golf Laboratries Inc. robot! They offer every service that the Tour Pros use to optimize their game. You really need to visit them to get the full scope of their services! Hot Stix partners with the best like Titleist, Taylormade, Ping, Mizuno, Cobra, KBS, Project X, Graphite Design, Nippon, True Temper and many many more. Please Click on above photo to see them all as there are way too many to list!

Needless to say I was extremely excited and really looking forward to getting my clubs back. They removed old shafts, spined new KBS shafts, added 1/4", soft stepped them once, tipped them to maintain stiffness, added new Golf Pride MCC Grips, perfectly aligned labels and my clubs were ready to go faster than I expected! Quality Work - Excellent Service!

First up - The Range to dial in distance and get a feel for the new shaft set up. I added 6-8 yards per club (from stock shafts) and I was at my desired trajectory with every iron. These shafts are very accurate/consistent and my little draw was going where I wanted it to. This definitely has a lot to do with how Hot Stix set them up! While the range was fun I couldn't wait to hit the course to see what they do under pressure in a skins game! 

I specifically keep track of what club I hit into greens when I play. I had my 4-GW fit with these shafts and I hit 11 of 13 greens in round one! In round two much of the same hitting 12 of 14 greens with the same clubs. This is a one to three greens in regulation improvement from prior club set up. Overall after just two rounds I am extremely impressed and happy with the work performed by Hot Stix. I will have them swap out my wedge shafts next, go through a putter fitting and have them fit my woods so my entire bag is dialed in!

Review SQRDUP - Go Time Golf

Go Time Golf Review: SQRDUP

Tested: SQRDUP Instructional Golf Laser Training Aid

Visit SQRDUP at: www.SQRDUP.com

Current Promo: SAVE $50.00 Total Which Includes Free Shipping

Use Promo Code: GOTIMEGOLF

Visit Go Time Golf at: www.GoTimeGolf.com

Overview: We would like to remind everyone that we actually tested the SQRDUP "Prototype" a few years back and loved the product. Our feedback for improvement to the SQRDUP Team was:
- The tripod was a bit tricky to get set quickly - They addressed this and greatly improved it!
- The lasers were somewhat "dull" in bright light - Huge improvement on this final version!
We are extremely excited to put this multi-functional Laser Alignment Aid through the test!
More on this in a minute.


SQRDUP States: This Instructional Golf Laser Improves Alignment, Accuracy and Ball Position Memory Instantly. SQRDUP will assist you in becoming a Better Golfer. From putter to irons to driver,  SQRDUP is the ONLY golf alignment aid which teaches precision using lasers to help create the perfect lines. SQRDUP is especially effective on the putting green, where it provides a fixed putting line which can be easily tracked by your eyes and understood by golfers at all levels. SQRDUP works on any putt, anywhere and anytime! Putting is just the beginning though. 
To see SQRDUP in action on the range click on this video link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4XRBVKXOhY


What We want you to know about SQRDUP: SQRDUP is being used worldwide by teaching pros, Professional golfers at all levels and amateur golfers in numerous ways. SQRDUP took all the feedback from the "Prototype" and delivered a product based on what everyone said. The "Go To Market" product is in our opinion as close to flawless as it gets. We are ready to reveal our uses of SQRDUP and why everyone should put one in their bag! First, we applaud SQRDUP for receiving GOLF DIGEST's Editors' Choice Award for Best Golf Training Aid in 2019.


Go Time Golf Testing Session: We started our testing on the putting green. We found a 10 foot putt with a cup of right to left break in it. We then aligned the laser on the exact path that the putt needed to start on and hit 10 putts. I am a straight back and through putter so if my putter didn't stay on the laser it provided instant feedback. I did stop my putting stroke a few times because the laser told me it was not a good takeaway. I rolled in 9 of the 10 putts and saw the extreme value of SQRDUP!
Next we picked a "random" golfer on the putting green who wanted to know what we were doing. This golfer hit a few practice putts and then took our "10 putt challenge". He made all 10 of his 10 foot putts after just a few minutes of practice time. One of the findings was I thought I was lined up "square" to the ball while putting but found that when I looked at laser line and my feet I was actually closed to the target line of the putt. After hitting a number of putts a "square" stance became routine and felt normal. There are just so many benefits to SQRDUP on the putting green.


SQRDUP on The Range: Well, well, well more great alignment feedback from SQRDUP. First up some 75 yard wedges. We aligned SQRDUP at the flag, then put a ball on the laser line, aligned our stance to be square with the target, and found the proper ball placement for a "normal" trajectory shot. 
Wow, birdie after birdie opportunities with that 58 degree wedge! However, I did notice that my divots were NOT in front of the laser line that the ball was on. I made a few minor adjustments with my swing and focused on getting that divot in front of the line. Next thing I notice I am compressing the ball much better and gained about 6-8 yards with this wedge. Lets test this out with mid irons now! Much to my surprise more of the same except a few more yards gained with my 5-7 irons. I saw gains of 8-12 yards with them. We found a ton of other benefits of SQRDUP during our testing. Want to hit a draw or fade? Simply open or close you stance slightly to the perfect laser lines from SQRDUP. I typically use set up sticks for this but must say that SQRDUP takes ALL the guess work out of alignment perfection. Also it is extremely easy to see changes in ball position for a high, mid or low shot with SQRDUP. We believe that the uses of SQRDUP may be endless as we just kept finding more applications with it! 
One of our testers took it to hit pitch shots from a hill over a bunker. He set it up so the laser hit a spot on the green where he wanted to land the ball. His feedback was the tripod allowed him to set the laser quickly and held it's awkward position very well resulting in dialing in the perfect pitch to where he needed the ball to land. 
Then he stepped in the trap with it and set the laser 1-2" inches behind the ball, had the club enter on laser line and started hitting some very creative bunker shots immediately. SQRDUP does it again!


Pros: SQRDUP is the #1 Laser Alignment Aid in our opinion. Whether you use it for putting, chipping,  bunker shots, iron play, driver practice or the many other applications you discover with it, SQRDUP needs to be in your bag. A great value for the price - even better with current promo they are running!

Cons: Only available on line currently. It will take a few days to get it - but there is free shipping with their current promo.

Go Time Factor: This is rather obvious - It's Go Time for SQRDUP. Get yours ordered today, save and start taking your game to a new level using SQRDUP's Laser Alignment Aid!

Vokey gives you 14 days, Cleveland gives you 30 days. We have the best return policy in the industry hands down.

Wedge Specs: Our wedge heads are forged from 1020 soft carbon steel and have a CNC milled face. The bounce on the 56 is 12 degrees, the 50 is 8 degrees and the 60 is 10 degrees. Both the black and gold finishes are done using an electroplating process adhering the colored metal to the stock silver metal head.

The Shaft: The shaft is a stepless rifle shaft and not a standard stepped shaft. Its regular flex with a middle kick point and weighs around 120 grams. Shaft lengths are 35" for the 60, 35.25" for the 50 and 35.125" for the 56. The shafts are finished in silver on our black wedges and gold on our gold series. For details on other lofts please visit our site.

Our wedges embody a lifestyle that goes beyond just golf clubs and spin rate. A lifestyle where fun is paramount and where we acknowledge "it's better to be lucky than good".
Get Lucky Today.



So Let The Testing Begin: We were extremely excited to put Lucky Wedges through the test.
Unfortunately, it was pouring when we received them so our testing was slightly delayed. Immediately after opening the nice packaging we quickly found that these wedges are built with quality front and center. Our Test Package included - Black Series Bundle with 52, 56 & 60 degree wedges and a 60 degree Gold Series Wedge. The first thing we noticed was the precision milling on the face of the wedges, then the incredible look when addressing a ball with the face square or open and last but not least - the step-less "rifle" style shaft finished off with the tacky green grip. These wedges screamed performance, good looks and a FRESH style we haven't seen in the wedge market. Now we are waiting for the torrential rain to stop so we can hit the range and course with them.




Off To The Range: I feel it's important to state that I have been a long time user of Vokey wedges and feel that the wedges in my bag are scoring weapons that shave strokes off my score. However, these Lucky Wedges have an awesome look and feel about them and now it's time to put them through the test! First up some 72 yard shots with the 60 degree wedge. I quickly notice that the forged face provides a buttery smooth feel on all the shots I hit from this distance. Even shots slightly towards the toe (my miss) felt the same as ones dead center of the sweet spot. The milled face provided a one hop and stop action on normal shots which is exactly what I try to play. My distance was spot on throughout this portion of my testing. The "rifle" like shaft gave me a slightly lower trajectory under normal ball position but it was more than acceptable from this distance. The feel was a bit different than the stepped shafts in my current wedges but after a few shots the shafts were rather pleasing feel wise. My clubs are set up with Golf Pride MCC Grips but the stock grips on the Lucky Wedges performed fine especially since I rarely wear a golf glove. They were soft, tacky and extremely good looking. Now, time to move on to some touch shots... aka Flop Time.


Workability: These wedges are as good as any wedges on the market for "Around The Green" Shots.
The sole design and milled face allow you to hit any type of shot you need off any lie you may encounter on the course. We were able to hit flop shots, bump and runs, pitch shots and more from the rough, fairway and tight lies around the green. 
Now on to the sand. As I mentioned we had a ton of rain in AZ so the sand was rather on the firm side. However, we used our Caddie (or Caddy) skills to create various lies from firm to fluffy in the sand. The Lucky 60 degree Wedge handled them all very well. We even created a few fried egg lies and got them out with ease. The sole and bounce with an open to square club face let you play any type of shot as needed. 
The results of the 56 and 52 degree wedges produced the same shot making response as the 60 degree did. Hit them high, hit them low, check the shots up or add a little spin - Lucky Wedges did it all!
At our testing session we had 4 other players ranging from scratch to a 14 try Lucky Wedges and everyone said they were as good or better than the current wedges in their bag. The choice in finish (Black vs Gold) was equally split as some preferred the traditional less glare black while others loved the disruptive in the bag look of the gold finish! This is why Lucky Wedges has quickly become the Go To Wedge Company for golfers at all levels. 


Go Time Factor: If you are in the market for new wedges we highly recommend giving Lucky Wedges a Go! You won't be disappointed! They performed as well or in most cases better than any wedges on the market or any wedges our testers have in their bag. Your short game can shave strokes off of your score and Lucky Wedges will deliver shots that you need to get up and down!
It's Go Time!

Pros: Lucky Wedges are Top Quality, High Performance and Great Looking Wedges with the Best Guarantee on the market. You will be extremely happy with these wedges and they will improve your game while becoming a center-piece in your bag!

Cons: Lucky Wedges are only available on line at this time. However, if you try them and for any reason they are not for you - simply return them. We highly doubt this will happen!

Comments from other testers:

Chris - These wedges are the business. I am almost ready to replace my SM7s and will be adding a set of Lucky Wedges to my bag. So pure feeling and easy to spin. Awesome wedges.

Don - I know I will soon be winning more skins on Sundays - Lucky Wedges are Up & Down Machines. They will pay for themselves. Thanks for the testing opportunity of a great product.

Randy - Pure Gold and exactly what I am going to order! Time to ditch my old Callaways. 

Mark - These wedges were the biggest surprise of the year. I went from not sure to - got to get them in 30 minutes of testing. Smooth as silk... spins like a top... must add to my bag... time to shop...

What Go Time Golf Has To Say: So, gum has entered the golf industry full force and there are plenty of good reasons why! Going back a few years (ok more than that - like 1999 to be exact) I remember Payne Stewart winning The US Open Championship at Pinehurst and..... he was chewing on some gum all week. He remained calm, focused and energized right through that special moment putt on the 72nd hole! Did he know something back then? Some will say it was his way to stop smoking on the course.. whatever the reason - Gum and Golf have been around for a while.

Fast forward to recently, Tiger, Phil and a number of others have started chewing gum. They are chewing to reduce stress, help their concentration, gain some clean energy, stay more focused and probably to have fresh breathe around their playing partners and when interviewed. Yes, gum is now a big part of golf and in a ton of golfers' bags. It's here to stay!

Let The Testing Begin: We decided to bring Golf Gum samples to our weekend skins game to get feedback from some players in our group.

Please note - I typically would not take any caffeine products on the course as I don't want the Jitters!

Each Tester was given two pieces Golf Gum (individually wrapped) and asked to take one just before teeing off and the second on the turn prior to the 10th tee. I obviously joined in!

The first thing you will notice is that this Golf Gum has a rather quick cooling spearmint taste that is extremely pleasant and better than any gum I have ever had..

Golf Gum has a liquid center that tastes instantly gives your mouth a super clean feeling.

There was no crazy jolt of energy from the caffeine just a nice smooth and level amount of energy on the entire front 9. The gum held it's flavor and texture for the entire 9. Impressive!

It appeared that I had a heightened sense of focus especially on some tricky shots around the greens and while putting. At times I seemed to tune out all distractions around me and stay focused on the shot I was about to hit. I love this "In The Zone" feeling!

At the turn I tossed the first piece of Golf Gum (which still had plenty of taste left) and took my Back 9 piece. I do usually lose some energy near the end of my round so I was interested if the Golf Gum would help!

As I approached the 15th tee I noticed that my energy level remained solid, my focus was still awesome and felt that Golf Gum was the primary reason. I actually ended my round par, par and BIRDIE on 18 to capture some skins by sinking a 15 footer. What? Didn't Payne do that? It must be The Golf Gum!

Go Time Factor: Golf Gum is great tasting, Jitter Free, Sugar Free gum that delivers 18 holes of Focus, Clean Energy and needs to be in your bag. We were very impressed and now understand why so many golfers are chewing gum. It's Go Time for Golf Gum!

Golf Gum offers an assortment of packaging including Single pack, 2 Sleeve, 5 Sleeve or 15 Sleeve tray!

We would encourage you to give Golf Gum a Go Now!

Be sure to use your Promo Code GTG23 and SAVE 23% on any purchase!

Pros: Great Spearmint Taste, Clean Energy with No Jitters, Enhanced Focus and last a long time!
If you want to play better Golf Gum will help! Also, give it a try off the course for all of the reasons we pointed out!

Cons: It is only available on line but they deliver it quickly! We encourage all Pro Shops and Golf Retailers to try Golf Gum as we know you will add it to you shelves!

What Our Testers Say:

DD - I was totally impressed with Golf Gum and the energy it delivered. I felt at times like I was in a "Focused Trance" as I "Tuned Out" my obnoxious playing partner's banter and hit great shots! A huge TY to GTG and Golf Gum for including me in the test! Will order this and you should too.

SJ - Love Golf Gum, love the energy, love the taste and love the way I played! I am now a big Gum fan! I appreciate the opportunity to test this great product!

MP - I chew gum more than other testers and found Golf Gum to be my new favorite. This does more than your off the shelf gum and you can feel it on the course. It is the Gum of gums and I encourage you to give it a try! You will be glad you did! GTG and Golf Gum Rock!

AH - Golf Gum surprised the hell out of me! I had such great focus and energy through all 18. Can gum really so this? I now know it can! Thanks for letting me test it! I will order mine with the skins money I won! 

Note: As we have more tester feedback we will post their comments.

What is CBD? To Learn More Please Click On The Link Below:

What Go Time Golf Has To Say: We are sure that you are aware many PGA Pros, Champions Tour Pros and Amateur Golfers have tried and/are utilizing CBD products to improve their on-course focus, calmness as well as their desire to reduce pain while playing. A large number of Pros are utilizing gum as the preferred method to gain the benefits of non-THC CBD. The Pros that we have spotted chewing gum while playing include Tiger, Phil, Billy Herschel and others, Bubba is sponsored by a CBD company and Pros like Scotty McCarron have been extremely vocal about the benefits of CBD for golfers. CBD is here to stay and the list of CBD golfers is growing.

Please note that I have personally tried numerous CBD Products with this being the first time to use a CBD Gum. Many of our members, testers, vendors and weekend skins game participants also utilize CBD products to help their game and health!

Let The Testing Begin: We decided to bring SYNAPSE samples, along with one other gum sample (more on this in another review) to our weekend skins game to get feedback from a group of
current CBD users (5 total). Each player was given SYNAPSE and their feedback is posted later in this review.

Each Tester was given two pieces and asked to take one just before teeing off and the second on the turn prior to the 10th tee. I obviously joined in!

I should also point out that on the day of testing I was running a bit late to the course, my typical pre-round warm up went from 45-50 minutes down to 20-25 minutes so my stress level was "higher than usual". I started chewing SYNAPSE on the putting green prior to heading over to the 1st Tee.

The first thing you will notice is that this gum is delivered in a unique tin and has a very pleasant spearmint aroma that can be smelled from a distance before even opening the package.
SYNAPSE has a liquid center that tastes great and is refreshing as soon as it hits your mouth. All of our testers reported very similar comments.

After hitting my tee shot in the left rough and not starting the round with my typical down the center tee shot I noticed a sense of calming verses stress that I had a few minutes ago. Now, some of you may say.. "That's All In Your Head" and honestly maybe it was but Who Cares!

As the front 9 continued I did notice a higher level of calmness, more focus on my shots, less anxiety on any fairways or greens missed and a desire to stay in the moment. As I spoke to other testers on the front they all agreed the SYNAPSE does calm you even under the pressure of making a putt for skins or dealing with a tough lie. After finishing 9, I noticed the gum had a pretty good workout but still maintained a bit of it's flavor. Time for my back 9 treat!

Typically on the back 9 I start to lose focus around 14 and have to force myself to stay with it. I believe that part of this is caused by my body getting a bit stiff and not swinging loose and free. I couldn't wait to see if SYNAPSE had an impact on this.

So, as I approached the 16th tee I noticed that I my tempo and freeness in my swing was still there and I actually had a very nice back 9 going at +1 through 15. A few of the guys in my group actually said that my tempo was the best they had ever seen it late in the round. Thanks SYNAPSE!

Go Time Factor: As we stated CBD is helping golfers at all levels perform better, eliminate those golf aches/pains, stay focused, remain calm and the list goes on. All of this equates to more enjoyable, focused rounds of golf with better scores. All of our testers loved SYNAPSE and 3 of them had their best Skins results of the year. I highly suggest that you give SYNAPSE a try and benefit from this product. It's Go Time for SYNAPSE!

SYNAPSE offers an assortment of packaging including Single pack, 2 pack, 6 pack or 15 pack tray!

We would encourage you to test SYNAPSE Now!

Be sure to use your Promo Code GTG23 and SAVE 23% on any purchase!

Pros: Great Tasting, Long Lasting, Calming, Increased Focus, Delivers Energy in a Calm Way, Healthy and the list goes on. It will help your Golf Game and Health On and Off of The Course!

Cons: It is only available on line but they deliver it quickly! We encourage all Pro Shops and Golf Retailers to try SYNAPSE as we know you will add it to you shelves!

What Our Testers Say:

VG - I currently use an array of CBD products daily. SYNAPSE Gum is the real deal! It tastes very good, last longer than expected and gave me the right amount of CBD on the course. I would probably use 3-4 pieces per round but two were ok to test. I suggest you give it a try. I appreciate the opportunity to test this product.

JL - SYNAPSE = more calmness, more focus, smoother swings, less bad shots and in my case 
MORE SKINS WON! Now it's time to oder more!! Thanks to GTG for sharing!! Have any more??

ND - WOW I really enjoyed this gum! I chew regular gum frequently as I am a smoker... I know I need to quit! This not only helped my golf game but cut my urge to smoke while playing. I really didn't notice that until I was done with my round and saw that I only had 3 cigarettes during the round compared to my usual 8-9. This is really a fantastic product and thanks for allowing me to test it! Everyone should give SYNAPSE a try!

BT - The power of CBD in gum - the Pros use it - CBD is popular with many - Played better - scored better - felt better - stayed calmer than usual especially after a bad shot or missed putt - really enjoyed the round more & won some Skins! I would recommend SYNAPSE to friends and family for golf or everyday!

Overview: What the SmartBallGolf does:

A grass mat that’s a hitting surface to strike golf balls from. Horizontal sensors create a cloud just over the surface of the grass hitting area. These sensors detect where the golfer’s club impacts the ground. Then provides instant feedback to the golfer with LED lights using colors: red, yellow, and green.
    • RED means the golfer is hitting too far behind the ball
    • YELLOW is behind but getting closer to correct impact
    • GREEN is perfect impact after the ball which is the proper low-point of the swing.
  • Allows a user to detect, adjust, and maintain the low point of their golf swing
  • Allows a user to fine tune and repeat the low point of their golf swing
  • Creates muscle memory with its ability to be used with and without a golf ball
  • The Smart Ball unit is the first and only electronic training device that detects the low point of a golf swing. It uses a Red, Yellow, Green colored light pattern to display the user’s low point. The unit can identify a low point with or a without a golf ball.
  • Lots of players don’t like hitting balls off of mats because it is hard to tell how clean of a strike they actually made. A red zone swing that hits the matt before the golf ball has a much greater tendency to bounce off the surface and slide into the golf ball. It allows the player to sweep through a shot that impacts the turf before the golf ball. Our device will eliminate this worry by showing a player his low point with pinpoint accuracy.
  • High quality players can interpret their divot patterns to make changes to their golf swings. They will pay attention to the direction of the divot, depth of the divot, and location of the start and end of the divot. All of these things are impossible to detect when hitting off of an artificial surface. The SmartBall unit will allow players who are hitting off a matt to identify the low point of their swing.
  • Before the smart ball there were very limited options for training aids or drills to work on a player’s low point. There has never been a device that allows you to pinpoint the location of your low point until now.
How it can improve your game:
  • Teaches the player to hit the ball with a downward strike that impacts the turf at or in front of the golf ball.
  • Encourages the user to take divots like the pros.
  • Helps develop hands forward at impact.
  • Lighting green lights strongly encourages forward weight transfer.
Let The Testing Begin:

Go Time Golf Testing Session: When we received the SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer we first noticed the quality of the packaging and the unit itself. There were step by step instructions on everything from unpacking, charging and setting up the unit. We charged the unit overnight and couldn't wait to put it to use!

I have been losing distance with my irons (7-12 yards) over the past year or two from what I will blame on age! I have noticed that I am not compressing the ball like I use to. My biggest hope was that The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer would assist me in getting some of that distance back! More on this later when we get to the results...

Unfortunately for me I couldn't get to the range due to RAIN in Arizona so being impatient I decided to set up The SmartBallGolf unit and see what it would tell me without a ball on it! I warmed up a bit and started with a pitching wedge... The first few swings all had about the same feedback.. I was "scooping" a bit and hitting slightly behind the ball! This was actually one of the better swings in that session. Most of them had from 4-7 yellow lights to the right! If you look closely at the unit you will see an arrow on each side that indicates ball position. After a few swings I decided to add a whiffle ball which made it much easier for me to focus on. Rick, the Inventor of this unit suggested putting a dot on it where the ball should be but a whiffle ball worked just fine and I didn't want to mark up the unit! 

Next to the range: I should point out that there are two settings on the SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer - Hold Mode (lights remain on for 2 minutes unless reset) and Flash Mode (when you want to make many swings quickly). We used the unit in Hold Mode most of the time.

I started testing my skills with a 58 degree wedge (my 70-75 yard club) and noticed that I was getting 3-6 yellow lights and hitting most shots about 70 yards. I set up to a flag that was 78 yards away. After 3-5 shots I focused on getting my hands to the left more, my weight to the left more and trying to compress the ball more (hit the ball first and the my low point after the ball). Here is what my shots quickly turned into!

Now my shots were flying between 77 and 82 yards much to my delight! I could feel that the ball was coming off the club face better, I was getting the ball first and then the matt and starting to compress the ball like I use to! I should point out that this matt area is designed to provide excellent feedback and is virtually indestructible. The next few shots were more of the same and a few produced the best shots of the day with this wedge! PURED!! All 15 Green lights!

These shots averaged 80-85 yards of carry. That's more like it! It was easy to see that The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer can improve your swing quickly!
After 15-20 minutes I passed the unit on to other testers and went through my normal pre-round warm up. I noticed that the majority of my divots were now in front of the ball, I gained more distance on every iron and felt like the ball was being compressed much more. Obviously, I will continue to practice at home and on the range then update this review after 30-60 days of using The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer.

Now, I will share some other results of our other testers. This tester was hitting a PW and called me over and said "I pured that shot and still got 8 Yellow Lights - Something is wrong I know my club didn't make contact way back there"! Here's the photo.....

So, When I was talking to Rick he told me a story of a Pro who said something similar and he simply put some coins on the unit and ask them to try it again... so I did the same......

The Result - Coins Gone! The tester looked at me in dis-belief! However, after 3-4 more tries (using his coins) he began feeling what its like to have the low point after the ball. Then I saw our other testers chipping with The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer with this set up...

I began to try this and have been hitting "crisp" shots around the green and my confidence has gone up drastically knowing that I am less likely to hit these shots fat or thin! Yes, just another application for this great aid!

Pros: The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer can be used at home (with or without golfballs), at your office or on the range. It provides instant feedback on where your low point is on your swing and will make you a better ball striker. The unit is filled with the latest technology (from the mat to lights), extremely well built, durable (we did have a few testers hit the plastic leaving no marks), you can see all the LEDs in bright light, the battery lasted 5 outings without a charge, comes with a nice carrying case and the list goes on!

Cons: It is only available on line so you can't pick it up at your favorite retailer yet. It is addicting so someone will ask you to please put it up! I can vouch for that!

Go Time Golf Factor: When you watch the Pros all of their divots are in front of the ball that's exactly what The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer helps you do. There may be things in your swing that will change like your arms more left at impact (right handed golfers), your weight transferred to your left side better and more extension through the ball after impact. Hopefully a "light" just went on - that's what you should be doing! I have spent a ton of time talking with Rick and he is extremely knowledgable on the golf swing. He was a teaching Pro and has helped many golfers get better. He has studied all of the Pros and understands that regardless of their swing at and after impact they all are very similar. That's what led to his invention and I am extremely excited about this product and the benefits of owning one! Yes it's Go Time for The SmartBallGolf Low Point Trainer. Every teaching Pro should have one for their students to feel the elements of finding the correct low spot in their swing!

Comments from other Testers: 

Tester 1 - MB: First, I appreciate the opportunity to test this aid! Thank You! I found that it confirmed what I have been doing for a long time - hanging back on my right side. I lit more colored lights than are on my Christmas Tree with the first dozen swings. I did get to one, two or three yellows after about 20 minutes of my session time and was hitting it much better. I will invest in my game and purchase one in the very near future.

Tester 2 - JL: I keep hear Mike saying "Hit Down On It" like the song says. This test session cost me $2.78 plus whatever I owe everyone else. Yep, I am the coins behind the ball guy.... Ok, Ok, I confessed. Now I love the Smart Ball Golf aid! It is seriously an instant feedback aid that points out what you are doing wrong even though you don't believe it. Big Props to the inventor you are on to something big here and every stick I know would benefit by having one. Thanks (even though you made an example outta me) to GTG!

Tester 3 - GW: What a fabulous device. It's easy to use, fun, gives instant feedback and was the highlight of the range. If you struggle with chipping or pitching you need one! It will make you a better ball striker and improve your short game! Two thumbs up and thanks to Go Time for introducing us all to Smart Ball Golf.

Tester 4 - BT: Now I understand a bit better what it feels like to crush irons like the pros. If your swing bottoms out in front of the ball magic happens. I am a single digit handicap and enjoyed the hell out of working with this training aid. I always thought my swing was fairly good and that I compressed the ball well... now I know that there's room to improve. I also saw the results other testers who may be 15-20 handicaps got in a very short period of time. Well done Smart Ball Golf.

Tester 5 - MK: If you want to get better, hit it farther and be more consistent get one! I have my name on the list to barrow it for a week and can't wait. Thanks Go Time for this introduction. Now send it my way already! See you this weekend!
