POWER LAG + FLAT WRIST PRO The FlatWrist Pro and PowerLag Pro combo pack combines two products that perfectly compliment each other and will help you learn how to create and maintian more lag and develop a better downswing plane with consistent hand and wrist position at impact. Let’s look at each separately to see how they can benefit you. PowerLag Pro – A lightweight molded yellow plastic brace that is worn on the player’s rear hand (right hand for right-handed golfers). The position of the product is important – make sure it is oriented just left of the index finger as indicated in the video. When the wrists are properly cocked the index finger joint should be at the top of the L shape. The idea is to feel the PowerLag Pro touching the back of the wrist from the top of the backswing all the way down until the trailing elbow gets near the belt line. By this time the hips should have opened and the club can be delivered to the back of the ball with maximum force. FlatWrist Pro – Worn around the player’s leading wrist like a watch and clipped into the glove for additional stability, the FlatWrist Pro features a wrist face ‘needle’ that shows the player where the back of the left wrist is pointing. It has an alternate configuration that will indicate the plane of the club as well.
GRIP SOLID A thin rubber strap, which uses innovative 3D FLEX•BAR technology to solve grip pressure and position problems. Raised soft ergonomic FLEX•BAR fins on palm side contour against your club grip, working intuitively to eliminate “death grips” and help you achieve greater distance and accuracy each time you swing.
PUTTFIDENCE This training aid which will help you make more putts within ten feet! You can practice with Puttfidence at home, the office, or the putting green at your course. It is easy to use and you will see immediate results.
