SKLZ Gyro Swing

The SKLZ Gyro Swing is the only training aid that gives a player the “feel” of a correct swing… on plane and with a full release (eliminating the dreaded slice that 85% of all golfers endure).
  A gyroscope in the clubhead spins at 20,000 RPM, and the force of this super-fast rotation makes the club literally “come alive” in your hands, keeping it square to an arc around your center, keeping your swing perfectly on plane. And if you start to go off plane—inside, outside, whatever—it actually fights that movement.
  You can feel the resistance and twisting in your hands if you come over the top or cast the club (swing flaws common to slicers). And, you’ll also feel it force your hands to turn over, exaggerating an early release if you haven’t shifted your weight in your downswing, or with a smooth, late release if you have.
  Whether you’re an average amateur who’s never known the feeling of a proper release, or a low handicapper who just needs to refine his game, there’s finally a swing aid that helps you bridge the gap between mechanics and feel.

Power Angle Pro

Developed by John Rohan-Weaver G.S.E.M., authorized Golfing Machine G.O.L.F. teaching professional the Power Angle Pro was initially introduced to help professional golf instructors help their students to learn proper fundamentals. This unique trainer will purify your swing and unleash the power hidden by poor fundamentals. Use it at home, on the range or to stretch and warm up before a round.
The Power Angle Pro builds a perfect swing, position by position. As the golfer moves slowly from one position to the next with the Power Angle Pro, he or she can verify correct golf swing position movement and convert these needed positions into feel. With practice, the Power Angle Pro will correct your golf swing faults and purify your golf swing through effective motor skill learning. Used by Many Top 50 golf  instructors and Tour Professionals including Major winners. , 866-839-4653 or 407-862-2727

Pivot For Power Swing Trainer

This new swing trainer “hears” impact of  club on ball and simultaneously “feels” the position of the golfer’s  back foot heel. If the golfer strikes the ball with his heel down, it  emits a short tone,  telling a golfer he was “late,” transferring weight to front foot.  For a golfer whose primary problem is failure to aggressively move forward before he strikes the ball, this really works!   In only a few minutes most decide to avoid that persistent late tone--and make a big effort to get forward faster!
  Golfers must post on their front leg (and unweight their back leg) in order to turn  their hips toward the target and keep the clubhead accelerating through  the ball, make crisp contact, and straight or even draw ball  flight.   The change this makes in a high handicapper’s golf swing is dramatic and permanent-- nobody wants to go back to fat shots and fade or slice! A typical amateur can make a significant improvement in his golf swing--hit more fairways and greens, and lower his handicap!
