The Swing Speed Radar with Tempo Timer is a small, inexpensive Doppler radar velocity sensor that provides the swing speed and tempo time for golfers of all age and skill levels. It assists players in developing/optimizing their swing by measuring Actual Tempo Time from club takeaway to ball impact at the climax of their forward swing, as well as the Swing Speed of the clubhead as it approaches the ball. Essentially two instruments in one, the Swing Speed Radar with Tempo Timer, featuring simple one-button operation, provides unmatched utility in a single device. Use it at home in the backyard, indoors or outdoors in a hitting cage, at the driving range, or during recreational play.
The Sports Sensors Swing Speed Radar with Tempo Timer lets you measure both your clubhead speed and swing tempo, from takeaway to ball impact. A small microwave Doppler radar velocity sensor, it can be used by golfers of all ages and skill levels to optimize swing mechanics and rhythm for achieving maximum distance and maintaining control, consistency and accuracy.
Clubhead speed and tempo are two significant characteristics of a golfer's swing that must be optimized and controlled if the golfer is to consistently achieve his/her best ball-striking results. Expensive launch monitors costing thousands of dollars, primarily used by well-funded clubmakers, instructors, or pro golfers, generally include these two vital parameters in their measurement systems. However, less expensive devices for use by most instructors, clubmakers, and by the golfing public are limited in utility. Conventional swing speed meters can be inconsistent, unreliable, and complicated to use. Some even require attachments to the club that can change the club swing dynamics. Metronome-type devices can provide tempo time models for the golfer to try to emulate, but the resulting tempo time can only be estimated by comparisons with the model.
The Swing Speed Radar with Tempo Timer can be set to measure and display clubhead swing speed alone (SS Mode); tempo time, from club takeaway to ball impact, alone (TT Mode); or both swing speed and tempo time in the Dual Mode, in which the display toggles (alternates) between swing speed and tempo time.
The Swing Speed Radar with Tempo Timer is the practical choice of clubmakers and instructors who want the flexibility and convenience of use in the field as well as at their home-based hitting stations. It can be used by golfers of all ages and skill levels, at home or at practice facilities.
When practicing at home, in the backyard, or in areas where actual balls cannot be hit, it is best to use a practice ball "target" to obtain swing speeds that correspond directly to those of hitting an actual golf ball. The practice target provides a point to focus the release of the clubhead. Many golfers experience a slower swing speed without a practice target on which to precisely focus.
