Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim Too long for me and no feedback with use High handicapper looking to improve swing speed. This advertised to help. Purchased on line. Took 7d to arrive. It came in one size 48" and was too long for me (5'8") to swing freely. It also gave little tactile feedback for any meaningful change. I'm taking it back today... hopefully the local Dicks will accept or exchange.... September 9, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by toocoo66 Perfect warmup Product works just as well as the orange whip but at half the price. September 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris For the price, excellent purchase For the price, this was an excellent purchase. The Gold Flex Trainer does the same thing as the orange whip at half the price, I highly recommend this product if you struggle with tempo. June 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by golfsteve As good as competitor but 40% Cheaper. I shopped and tested the SKLZ Gold Flex Trainer v. the Orange Whip?minimal difference but 40% cheaper. Couldn't pay more just for the O. W. name. Have used the SKLZ Gold Flex Flex Strength and Tempo Trainer before my round. Defiantly helped to loosen me up. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Robinson HAPPY WITH THE GOLD FLEX My daughter got this for me at Christmas and it has improved my swing and tempo by hitting the ball farther and straight down the fairway . My golfing buddies can't believe how much my game has improved. I did take off there grip and had the same grip I use my own clubs installed for a better feel. January 21, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by TW Good Product but BEWARE I think this product is very beneficial in creating a "steeper angle" of attack and also helping make your wrist hinge and release more active. " Let me clear up one thing if you have a sound, solid swing plane and mechanics I think this will help re-ensure that, just as I think it could do the same for bad habits" HOWEVER, I noticed after really putting in some work with this that it caused a very bad "slip in my grip". My guess is that the added weight and whip effect contributed to this. Now I noticed this very early and am working on correcting it ( but I need to be conscientious of it) Huge downside in my book. I do like this product and will continue to work with it July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark Good Workout and Promotes Flatter Swing I have had this product for 10 days and it does exactly as advertised. It provides a good stretch that can be incorporated into a good core body workout. After 10 days you will notice a significant difference in the feel of your regular golf club as you will swing much faster and on a flatter swing path. You may even find that you may need a stronger flex after working out with this product for several weeks. I would not swing this product in the middle of a golf round as it will really screw up your tempo, only use during your off range/course hours. January 6, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLT Pretty Happy So Far ... After much deliberation, picking it up & putting it back on the shelf today, I decided to give this training aid a try. I have been having some issues with tempo and my swing plane & my hope was that this could help with those issues. I was itching to get to the driving range & must admit that I am pleasantly surprised with how well it went. First of all, this device really helped me get my body warned up & stretched. It seems like I have a harder & harder time getting my lower back loose as I get older, & swinging this thing 10 times before grabbing a club really helped. Second, I was able to get my tempo in line where it needs to be. And third, this aid seems to help me with making a good complete turn back & following that with a good finish. The clubs were very light after warming up with it & it did take a little adjustment for me to not get too fast on the way down. Granted all this took place at the driving range but after using this device I was crushing about 90% of my drives down the middle or with a little bit of draw. January 28, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bird-Dog Over Priced Strength and tempo trainer is useful for warming up prior to hitting golf shots and for enhancing muscles used during your golf swing. I personally believe the product is over-priced. March 3, 2012
