Swingclick Training Aid Review

Swingclick is a simple training aid that forces you to complete your back swing before starting the down swing.

Introduction

Tempo, rhythm, timing, and consistency.  Those are the things that Swingclick promises to improve in your golf swing.  These are big promises from a device that boils down to a metal bar that straps to your arm, but, especially in training aids, sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.

Set Up & Ease of Use

While not perfectly intuitive, Swingclick is a fairly easy to set up and use.  The idea is to strap the Swingclick on your lead arm with the metal rod in line with and parallel to your pointer finger.  From there, address the ball, make your back swing, and wait for the click.  When you hear the click, you can start your down swing.  You should also hear a click at impact, and then hold your follow through until you hear a third click.

It’s likely that you will need to do a little fine tuning to get Swingclick into the perfect position for you.  I had to twist the metal rod into an angled position because my swing is very flat.  Finding the right spot can be tricky because you don’t want it to click too easily, but you also don’t want to wait at the top forever.  Watching some of the videos Swingclick provides on their website can be helpful for this tuning.

Effectiveness

Let’s cut to the chase: what Swingclick does is force you to pause at the top of your backswing.  From that “frozen” position, you’re much more likely to sequence your downswing correctly – hips, torso, arms, club.  With the proper sequencing, you’re less likely to make a dramatic over-the-top swing that slices the ball into the parking lot.  While I don’t necessarily think the Swingclick will deliver all the things it promises, I do think that it’s a pretty solid slice-buster.

The other thing Swingclick emphasizes is holding your finish.  I found this to be a really helpful reminder, and a possible use for players who don’t fight a slice.

Swingclick claims to also have applications in the short game, primarily pitching.  I did not find it useful in this regard, but that may be because of my swing and the fact that I’m not a slicer.

Longevity

Swingclick has a couple important things going for it in terms of longevity: it’s small and durable.  You can leave Swingclick in your bag permanently, so it’s always ready to go when you practice.  It’s also a training aid that you can use indoors, to a degree.

Value

Swingclick is available at the very reasonable price of $30.  While Swingclick is a simple device, I still regard this price as being quite low for a training aid.  If you’re a chronic slicer, I think it’s well worth the money to see if Swingclick can fix your banana ball.

Conclusion

While I don’t think Swingclick lives up to the bold promises that it makes, I do think that it can be a highly effective tool for players looking to stop slicing the ball.  If you’re trying to slow down your transition and improve your sequencing, Swingclick is a good tool at a reasonable price.
