Has anybody tried the Orange Whip ?
Would be great to hear some feedback from you mob 
I am always looking for more distance of the tee and this swing aid brags it will teach a bloke lag.

Pover,

I've had these training aids in-store for a month or so and find them a great way to start a fitting session.

The average golfer usually takes 20/30 swings to loosen up and to make decent contact with an 8 iron. This warm up period can either make or break the confidence of a client and will even effect a low marker.

Swinging the Orange whip will quickly loosen anyone up, without the pressure of having to strike the ball well first up. It also gives me the opportunity to see if they are swinging it on plane or can even get a good rhythm and tempo going.

It will quickly show up your faults but can also help to slow you down and let the weight of the whip work.

In my opinion it is a great training aid and if used properly can really help develop a solid swing for anyone !

Jon...

I bought a clone of the Orange Whip some time ago ('yellow whip'), but I think they lost something in the translation. It's just a heavy blob on the end of a very flexible stick and waving it around bears no resemblance to swinging a golf club. Of course, it might be my fault entirely. Perhaps I just have no idea.

I'd be interested in trying 'the real thing' next time I visit Jon.

I have seen another device advertised. It has a small moveable weight which slides along the shaft toward the hands at the top. In the downswing, the golfer can hear the click and feel the weight hit its stop in the release.

That might also be good to try.

It's called a swing setter and I have one. It's promoted by Ledbetter and I used it quite regularly years ago as a warm up device but it has other uses.

Seems that most of the responses talk about this aid as a ‘warm up’ device, rather than actually answering the OP’s question - will it teach a bloke lag? I think it’s one of the better aids to produce ‘lag’ as it simulates what you should feel with a club if you’re generating lag. As you ‘whip’ the club through impact you’re going to generate clubhead speed which will mean greater distance. Where the average golfer loses this distance is when he or she ‘casts’ the club; which essentially equates to an early release. Casting occurs when there is no lag.
