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.
