What we like and what we don’t like about the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Golf Swing Trainer. We have tested and used many popular swing trainers. It’s what we do. And we love it.
I was definitely skeptical when we ordered the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Trainer but being able to swing almost anywhere inside was too appealing. We quickly learned that there is so much more to the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Trainer.
SWING TRAINER GRIP
The grip forces you into holding the club the right way. Making sure the V-shape between your thumb and index finger on both hands are pointing at your right collarbone like they should.
The bend in the shaft corrects a strong or weak grip. When you’re holding the Golf Swing Trainer in the ready to swing position the bend in the shaft should be straight. If not, your hands are out of position.
The only issue we can see with the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Trainer is with the grip size. If you have bigger hands you might want to pass. To give a reference, I am 5′ 11″ 175 pounds with normal size hands. The Golf Swing Trainer fits my hands perfectly. My golf partner has much larger hands and the grip is just too small for him. It is what it is.
SWING TRAINER TEMPO
The two-weight adjustment is an interesting feature that allows you to make the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Golf Swing Trainer feel like an Iron or a Driver. We personally like the weight in for added swoosh through the zone. Alot of amateurs lose power in their swing by putting all your efforts into the down swing and by the time you make contact with the ball the club is actually slowing down. This golf swing trainer helps you feel that whip through the contact zone in your swing.
Another feature is the way it helps force you to roll your hands through the contact zone. I have told people to swing a frying pan like a golf club. You should see the pan rolling through your swing. It helps give a visual of what the club should be doing. The weight on the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Golf Swing Trainer provides the same benefit.
SKLZ TRAINER SWING PATH
If you have swing path issues, BUY THIS NOW. It’s very easy to see the weight at the end of the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Golf Swing Trainer. It allows you to follow your swing path as you swing. We use a SKLZ alignment stick on the floor. While swinging the trainer you can focus on an inside/out swing path very easily. It helps you keep that elbow tucked while rotating your body allowing for a nice inside/out swing.
If used correctly the SKLZ Tempo & Grip Golf Swing Trainer could be a miracle worker for any golfer. We have really enjoyed using this product and will be purchasing more to have conveniently located. Trust us on this golf swing trainer review. You will not be disappointed.
