The Power Package training aid teaches you to set the proper angles with your wrists using your own clubs.
Jokes aside, Power Package is the name of a new training aid designed to teach you to hinge, flex, and rotate your wrists and arms correctly.
Ease of Use & Setup
To set up the Power Package, you need to remove the screw, slide it over your grip, then replace the screw. Some fine tuning is usually required to get it into the exact position you want. All told, setting up the Power Package only takes about a minute.
The first question I ask of any training aid is, “How clear is the feedback?” With the Power Package, it can’t be much clearer: your arms are in the cups or they’re not. Similarly, the “fix” is easy to figure out: adjust your wrist angles until the cups hit your forearms.
Another thing I like about the Power Package is that it allows you to work with your own clubs. Yes, the Power Package adds some weight to the club which will change the feel of it, but overall the transference should be quite good.
Finally, I appreciate the honesty of the Power Package’s instructional material. They advise starting with small swings using a short iron before making full swings with longer clubs. The book doesn’t say how long you should stick with short clubs and small swings, but hopefully the user will be smart enough to know not to “move up” until they’re having regular success at their current level.
Overall, I think the Power Package is an effective way to improve your technique. Like most training aids, I think there will be a burst of improvement at the start, especially if your wrist angles are a train wreck. Getting that last 10%-20% dialed in will require a real commitment of time.
Power Package is a mixed bag on longevity. On the positive, it can be used on any club. Also, it can be adjusted to “stronger” (more closed face) or “weaker” (more open face) positions, which means it can help a wide array of people fix a variety of problems. You may start using it to fix a slice and come back to it years later to stop a hook. Finally, Power Package can be very effective as an indoor training aid since you don’t need to make full-speed swings to work on your positions.
On the negative side, Power Package can’t live on your golf club (won’t fit in the bag), and it’s too big and awkwardly shaped to live in your golf bag. This means that to use it you need to remember to bring it to the range and attach it to a club.
The Power Package sells HERE for $80. Like many training aids, it comes with a 30 day money back guarantee.
I think the Power Package is effective and is decent in terms of longevity, so I think it is a good value. As with any training aid, make sure you think about your problems and your practice habits before purchasing.
“Wrist angles” is one of the most popular phrases in golf instruction right now, and with good reason: they can be the difference between great ball striking and hitting it all over the planet. The Power Package can teach you to use your wrists and arms correctly with clear, simple feedback. If you want to put in the time to perfect your technique, the Power Package can be a very useful tool.
