Dan is an absolute training aid addict, if it’s out there he probably owns it.

The Gabe Golf swing trainer, by two time PGA TOUR Winner Gabriel Hjertstedt, is designed to give you instant feedback on your swing. If you struggle with your transition then this could be the training aid for you.

Thanks for the video. From where can I buy one?

Gerard Funds says:

Not a good training aid…AT ALL!!!

Keith Dennis says:

Buy a SWINGCLICK + for £25. Does the same job.

Bay Area Sparky says:

BTW, having a cameraman shooting the video helps the look.

Howie Land says:

Appreciate the honest review, Dan. Enjoy your videos and am amazed by your coaching of Rick & Pete on their channels. Awesome to see you at work! And your videos keep getting better and better. If I may offer a critique, re-watch this video and notice how many times you say “okay.” Keep the videos coming!

Dan is getting better and better every video. Love the training aid reviews. You don’t see many videos like this.

stu crompton says:

matsuyama on steroids!! omg dan hahahahahahaha great i dea behind it tho, great video pal

Jh T says:

Did seem to make you pause forever. I could probably use that as I am still learning to shift weight before the downswing but still seamed
too long a wait.
Really love the swing guide based on your training aid reviews but think the ring around the club is a brilliant idea and would try that first before investing $200 euros which would over $300 Australian. Great review and very smart posted comments.

Agata Soda says:

But it’s not a back swing trainer it’s meant for release patterns. Get the feel for the shot you’re trying to hit then hit a shot with your normal club.

This guide “kaha shocking guide” (Google it) presented me Golf swing lessons. They generate a custom model based on your arm length, height, shoulder width, club length, and so on. The lessons have been incredibly useful, enabling me to drop my handicap from a 22 to a 15 in the last year.

Thanks for the honest review

Hi Dan,

I have been wondering whether you could do a video specifically on how to practice the sequence from the top. Having watched most of your videos I feel like I have a pretty clear idea of what to do. But it would be really helpful to learn some drills for engraining the sequence.

Do I practice in steps, in slow motion? What is the best approach?

Thank you for all the great content.


Bay Area Sparky says:

It seemed like an eternity.

dean robinson says:

Thanks for the review dan. This thing is nearly 200 euros delivered. Bit pricey. I reckon you could just add a little hoop onto the shaft of your own club to achieve a similar effect or a whistle.

Jayden Redd says:

As I read golf swing secrets “kaha shocking guide” (Google), I discovered how in depth it explains the appropriate way of doing a golf swing. The book is based off of the swing model of all tour pros put together. I`ve read 1/2 of this book and the tips are perfect. Looking over this book allowed me to score Three straight low 80s rounds.

R Gallagher says:

Too expensive for what it does, most of the newer golf aids seem to be priced at crazy levels for what they are

Charles Harrison says:

This is a great gadget. It is exactly the same as THE IMPACT SNAP, which I have and regularity use. It slows down the backswing until you hear the two ball bearings click and then you can begin your downswing.

john uren says:

better players may not struggle with the problem this meant to fix. I’ve got to say it seems an expensive solution .

Henry Tracey says:

Hi Dan, any tips on how to stop rolling the wrists on the takeaway ? Thanks

scedab says:

grab an old club, or get the cheapest you can from fleabay, take off the grip, insert couple of marbles, new grip. 5 quid tops

Diego V says:

Hi Dan, love your golf videos.
I’m using a TM4 unit, but i’m having trouble connecting an external camera. What camera’s do you use for teaching?

Rick Howarth says:

Tried it. One word. Crap.

embo85 says:

It’s also designed for the player to pause to make sure your weight is transferred to your back side and then to the front foot. As well as the correct timing. It’s an aid. Not a swing changer. It’s made for you to pause so you get in the right position, weight transferred, and not rushed. It’s supposed to make you wait. Not a great review because you’re only talking about one of the fixes. And you make it seem like its supposed to feel like a normal swing. I know a few PGA guys who swear by this.
