    i don't know about your pro, but most pros i know charge money.  and after a couple sessions you have spent more at the pro than you did on the swing analyzer.  you will get more from the pro, but if you are basing your opinion solely on price, i think  you need  to recalculate things.tdogg21Wheelez3030i think that it is a waste of money when you can do the same thing with your local golf pro

    i don't know about your pro, but most pros i know charge money.  and after a couple sessions you have spent more at the pro than you did on the swing analyzer.  you will get more from the pro, but if you are basing your opinion solely on price, i think  you need to recalculate things.

    tdogg, They are worth it.  The pros at my course will always give you a couple minutes on the practice tee and they love to be invited to play.  Our Head pro and three assistants all do it. I guess it is just a relationship thing.  They even ask me to look at their swings once in a while too.  Every year I will get a tune up lesson or two, going over fundamentals.

    It does sound like you want an analyzer.  Go for it, you asked the question but obviously you don't agree with the replies. That is okay you only have to please yourself.

    i think you are misunderstanding what i'm saying.  you say i don't agree with the replies, but that's not true.  people are saying pros are the way to go, and they are right.  but that wasn't what i asked.  i'm not looking to replace going to a pro for a lesson.  i'm looking to supplement that with work on my own.  i think a lesson from a PGA pro is MORE than worth it.  i've only ever had one lesson where i came away worse than i started.  and that was mainly due to a swing theory difference the pro and i had.  if i had access to a pro every session, i would take it and spend the money and not think twice.  

    all i was asking, was if anyone had tried any of the devices and if they actually did what they say they do.  i have certain 'things' i try to do with my swing, and i thought maybe one of these devices would help me to 'see' if i was doing what i thought i was doing.  it's been a while, but years ago i was trained to use a real swing analyzer and interpret the data.

    I get your point and feel many devices give valuable feedback. I'm unfamiliar with the smartphone app. If it provides clubhead speed and tempo feedback, that might be useful.

    A few lessons with a good PGA pro is probably the best way to go but, I think swing analyzers can help. I purchased the Tiger Woods "My Swing" app for my iPhone but I havent had time to try it. I will let you know what I think about the app as soon as I can get to the range and try it out.

    Rick is on the money as always.  Your PGA Pro is worth visiting.

    I would only use Trackman System (you see it all the time on PGA Tour ranges at tourney's) or as a second choice Foresight...with a high quality PGA Professional.

    I thought we had a thread on this.  My pro recently gave me a SwingByte for my birthday.  I have used it a few days on the range and it does offer good insight.  It sounds like they will be updating the software to offer more options.

    which version did you get?  they have a 2nd version, but i'm not sure if it started shipping yet.  it was suppose to ship in the spring, but their website still says pre-order.

  •  

    I got the original.  My pro has the second version in hand as well.

    TA3,

    Have you bought one of these; if so what has been your expierence?

    What would be very useful is know exactly how far I fly each club.

    Thanks

    The SwingByte has been a neat tool to use so far.  Still have some tinkering to do with it to see if it can help.  I'm not a real technical guy when it comes to the swing, but I do like to know around what my swing speed is and if my swing path is correct.

    Below are some sample readings from a Driver and a 6I

    I think for putting it would be fine. Full swing I would not know what to do to correct my swing regardless of how much data I was given by a swing analyzer.

    I am with everyone else a good instructor is invaluable.

    sounds like you like it.  have you had any issues with it twisting during your swing?
