TheStack Swing Speed Trainer | Hazy Sticks Alignment Sticks

TheStack Swing Speed Trainer

Jonathan Wall (Managing Editor, Equipment): Matt Fitzpatrick and Viktor Hovland have used the system to pick up some serious speed. I’m not coming close to their numbers, but I’ve already seen a noticeable increase in my clubhead speed after a couple of months. The trainings are easy to knock out during the week, which is nice for someone who’s constantly on the go.

Ryan Barath (Senior Editor, Equipment): With so much of the game built around speed, I have been a big-time fan of The Stack System and feel it’s one of the most useful long-term training aids that I have ever had.


TheStack Swing Speed Trainer

Increase your swing speed with 5 milled Stack weights which enable 30 weight combinations between 0g and 300g.

Hazy Sticks Alignment Sticks

Marley Sims (Assoc. Manager, Commerce): These alignment sticks are made with 100% genuine hickory with nickel endcaps, and you can get them custom engraved. I got mine engraved with a wholesome quote from myself that reads, “Love the game. -Marley Sims.”

Hazy Alignment Sticks in various colors and customization aspects.
