World Long Drive Champion approves this speed trainer
Everyone wants to play golf forever, but our bodies aren’t getting any younger. Joints hurt, mobility worsens, and as a result, swing speed decreases.
For young players to hit drives like World Long Drive champion Maurice Allen or experienced players to swing with more freedom, the Power SwingFan is a must-have. Oftentimes, people resort to warming up by swinging two clubs, getting used to a heavier weight. This makes a single club feel lighter and easier to swing. However, while this strategy helps swing speed, it messes up the swing plane.
The Power SwingFan can increase your swing speed without putting unnecessary strain on your body. The product uses air resistance rather than weight to make your clubs feel lighter in your hands. Compared to added weight, which can cause injury, continued resistance through the downswing requires better rotation.
I was able to set up my SwingFan in under ten minutes. Included in the packaging is a two-piece shaft: one with a real grip, and one with the mount for the blades of the fan. After attaching the two pieces together, I then inserted the fans and fastened them tightly with the included bolt and wing nut.
I found that the four-finned design has two purposes: building strength in the gym and warming up at the range.
The SwingFan is a fitness tool that can be incorporated into golf-centric cable workouts. The resistance of the fan reminded me of my cable resistance twisting exercises. Additionally, it can be used on the driving range 10 minutes prior to your tee time. Because there is no added weight, your club plane will remain intact. Weighted clubs may cause your shoulders to dip, but the SwingFan keeps your action tight and on plane.
