Q: Is the SPEED STIK easy to use?
A: YES!! Pull the SPEED STIK out of the box, take it out of the wrapper and start swinging it around your body in a continual fashion. Six to ten swings on the dominant side (for most this means right hand) then six to ten swings on the non-dominant side. Do two repetitions. Begin with soft swings and build to maximum speed on balance. That’s it! Workout over. 4-8 minutes, total time. The more you do this the faster you will increase your swing speed. Twice a day would be ideal.

Q: What is THE SPEED STIK?
A:The SPEED STIK is a training device specifically designed to enable you to increase your club head speed. Increased club speed will result in more distance. Research indicates that a one mile per hour increase in swing speed creates two to three yards more distance. An increase of 5 miles per hour, therefore, would equate to an additional 10-15 yards. SS training leads to an increase of swing speed (and more distance) with every club in your bag, not just the driver.

Q: Why should I buy a SPEED STIK?
A: Because distance matters and “Faster = Farther.” If you swing faster, you will hit the ball farther. If you hit the ball farther, you will score better. If you score better you will have more fun. Having fun is a good thing. THE SPEED STIK® will make all this possible.

Q: Why does it work?
A: Distance is directly related to swing speed. Tour professionals swing the golf club around 125 miles per hour and hit the ball 300+ yards. The typical male golfer swings the club around 90 miles per hour and hits the ball approximately 230 yards. The difference in the yards is in the speed. Swing speed is a function of five factors: Physical strength; flexibility; range of motion; balance and technique. Irrespective of age, gender, and athletic ability, THE SPEED STIK® combined with the prescribed drills, will bring about improvement in each of the criteria that determines swing speed.

Q: How does it work?
A: THE SPEED STIK® is longer than a golf club and heavier that a golf club. The outside diameter of THE SPEED STIK® is 1”. Swinging THE SPEED STIK® in a continual manner (drill number one) develops physical strength, improves flexibility, increases range of motion, enhances balance and improves swing technique. THE CONTINUAL SWING DRILL, IN TANDEDM WITH THE PRECISELY ENGINEERED SPEED STIK, BUILDS “SPEED ON SPEED” AS THE SPEED OF EACH SWING, GRADUALLY INCREASES, FINALLY CULMINATING IN MAXIMUM SPEED ON BALANCE. One of the drills that speed runners utilize to increase foot speed, is to run downhill. Running downhill forces them to run faster. Speed builds on speed. The continual swing drill functions on the same principal.

Q: Why are there two SPEED STIKS?
A: One size does not fit all. If you weigh less than 175 pounds you need Blue. If over 175 pounds you need a Red SPEED STIK. The Blue SS weighs 19 oz. and the Red SS weighs 24 oz. The serious golfer requires both SS because the Red (being slightly heavier) will produce maximum range of motion and golf specific muscle strength whereas the Blue SS (being slightly lighter) will create maximum speed in the swing.

Q: How do I know which SPEED STIK® is right for me - Red or Blue?
A: If you weigh over 175 pounds choose Red. For under 175 pounds choose Blue. If there is any question, choose Blue. You can create more speed with a lighter object, Vijay begins his practice routine with the Red SS and ends by swinging the Blue SS (3 minutes than 2 minutes).

Q: What is the difference between the Blue SPEED STIK® and the Red SPEED STIK®?
A: Same length. Same outside diameter. Only difference is the weight. Red weighs 24 oz whereas the Blue weighs 19.

Q: Is heavier better than lighter?
A: NO! The correct one for your weight is the one you want. THE SPEED STIK® is all about creating maximum speed in the golf swing on balance. You can swing a lighter object faster than a heavier object.

Q: What is the metal piece that slides up and down inside the speed gauge?
A: That metal piece is a reset button. It is designed to freely slide up and down the inside of the speed gauge shaft. Its function is to reset the red foam indicator that measures your swing speed (many people assume the gauge is broken when they first receive their SPEED STIK because they hear the reset button sliding up and down inside the gauge).

Q: Can I use my SPEED STIK indoors?
A: YES! Since the basic drill requires the SPEED STIK to be swung more around the body (as in a baseball type movement) than up and down, high ceiling space is not required. Indoor winter workouts actually produce better results because concentration is more intense and focused as you are not anticipating getting to the first tee or going to the practice range to hit a bucket of balls.

Q. Is it against the rules to take my SPEED STIK on the golf course?
A: No. (USGA decision 2001-496 It is not considered to be a 15th club, therefore you can keep it in your golf bag during the round and even in a tournament. You cannot, however, take it out and swing it during the course of the round without incurring a penalty. Good news is that you do not have to go to your car trunk or locker to put your SS up after using it on the practice tee or just warming up with it.
