Optimize your golf or baseball swing
Whether a novice or professional, the Swing Speed Radar from Sports Sensors will help you maximize your distance and control to take your game to the next level. A valuable aid for players of all ages and skill levels, the Swing Speed Radar is a powerful tool for coaches and instructors everywhere.
"It's not how hard you swing, but how well you swing.”
The Swing Speed Radar is a small microwave Doppler radar velocity sensor that measures the swing speed of golfers and baseball/softball players. However, over-swinging can produce poor results. The Swing Speed Radar helps you improve both metrics by measuring your swing speed, determining the best speed for optimum performance, monitoring your swing consistency, and selecting the club or bat characteristics that best suit your swing type. Golfers can use the device to determine the optimum swing for distance, control, and accuracy, while baseball/softball players can work on honing their bat speed to create consistently solid contact. The Swing Speed Radar's real-time velocity feedback helps players and coaches measure improvements and troubleshoot swing mechanics.
Instructions for Best Results
To measure golf swing speed, merely position the Swing Speed Radar in a forward location about 8 to 10 inches directly away from the tee. In baseball or softball applications, meanwhile, you can hang the device on a batting cage, pop-up net, or fence, or mount it on a tripod about 5 feet in front of or behind the player while he or she swings in the air or hits off a tee. By locating the Swing Speed Radar at a height that corresponds to the plane of the bat swing, the bat speed is measured "out front" of the batter in the hitting zone, which is where contact with the ball produces the best results. Put another way, the device measure the speed of the barrel of the bat, not the tip. This makes the Swing Speed Radar a great tool for helping you select the optimum bat size and weight for your swing.
What’s in the Box?
Your purchase includes a nylon drawstring pouch for carrying your Swing Speed Radar and two snap hooks for attaching it to your equipment bag or hanging from a net for bat speed measurements.
Care of Your Swing Speed Radar
The Swing Speed Radar is a unique electronics product intended for training and practice situations. Although the rugged design will withstand the rigors of normal use, it should be protected from golf club, bat and ball impacts; should not be dropped or thrown; or exposed to precipitation, or immersed in water or other liquids. Do not use or leave outdoors during inclement weather. Store the Swing Speed Radar in typical in-house environments, avoiding excessive temperature extremes, humidity, dust and dirt. The Swing Speed Radar can be cleaned with a slightly damped, soft cloth. Do not use alcohol, solvents, or chemical cleaners which can cause permanent damage.

I contacted SPORTS SENSORS and told them the story, I asked if they could send a replacement screen, they were great could not do enough for me, and posted a screen to repair the damage, they didn't even ask for payment.
I have never dealt with a better company, and the product is all quality, I cant say a bad thing about this product and would recommend it.
One thing I've noticed is that occasionally (maybe once every 100 swings) it registers an outlandish number, 124 mph in one case. Sometimes high and sometimes low. Also, it sometimes apparently can't clock the speed, in which case it just flashes the previous speed. That happens maybe once in 20 swings. These slight flaws are nothing compared to the value it adds.
The device comes with a handy little graph to tell you how far you hit the ball based on the swing speed. One things to keep in mind (in my opinion) is that if you are using it in a 45 degree garage in New England, the speed of the club head is probably slowed down by the cold air the same as a golf ball would be. Here's a chart of carry distance per temperature.
224 95* F
222 85* F
220 75* F
216 65* F
214 55* F
205 45* F
186 35* F
That's about 7% between 45 and 75, for example. So I add 7% to the swing speed before calculating the distance.
The most important thing I've found to improve distance is to swing with your maximum club head arc. You've noticed that better golfers always swing with their lead arm straight. Well, this is why. You can swing with your lead arm straight and still not achieve your maximum arc, but you cannot achieve your maximum arc without your lead arm straight. With a straight lead arm it feels as though I'm slightly reaching for the ball at address. On my backswing, and particularly on the lower part of my backswing, it feels as though I'm pushing the head of the club away from my body. You'll need to keep this extension all the way through the downswing and follow through. Your radar will tell you when you've got it right.
I've found that I swing slightly faster wearing a golf glove, so I wear a glove on my drives. Again, your radar will tell you if this is important for you.
Since no one else has mentioned it, I will. If extra distance is important to you, use a high compression ball. They go further. When you buy the HC balls, the clerk may try to tell you they were designed for the 112mph driver. Just remind him that the 112mph driver will be hitting a wedge on his second shot with a swing speed in the 70mph range, USING THE SAME BALL. The HC ball will go a bit further on putts as well as chips, so some acclimation may be necessary.
Another thing I've found is that while I play twice a week, that's not enough to keep my swing at top speed. Now this may just be my age, but it may also be that 14 high speed swings per round are just not enough to keep your swing at top form.Read more ›
