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.

"...I was not swinging too fast in the house and in the Swing Speed mode nothing registered. Called customer support and within 10 minutes I got a call back from Al who explained it had a minimum threshold of 40 mph in the SS mode. He spent over 15 minutes with me to test out all the other modes and shared tips for using it effectively. I was introduced to this training aid from John Novosel's book Tour Tempo that I also recommend. As noted, do not set it up too close or forward where it can accidentally get hit, and when you are ready to track your performance have someone with you to record the readings so you can concentrate on the swing.
Robust product at an affordable price. "
