SelfieGolf Record Golf Swing Training Aid Review
Ever tried recording your swing at the golf course using nothing but your phone? Imagine leaning your SmartPhone against your golf bag, pressing the record button and running to position yourself for the “perfect” golf swing?
You’ll admit that sounds nearly impossible. I have tried it and can confirm keeping your phone in the upright position isn’t the easiest of tasks. And positioning is everything if you expect to capture the right shot.
Whether you‘re looking for feedback to perfect your shot or simply want to show off on social media, we have the right gadget for you—a SelfieGolf.
Sure, you can always ask your buddy to record the moment for you. But what happens when you’re by yourself? This relatively new product is designed to make the whole process hassle free while providing you with instant feedback.
Does this convenient device sound like it’s worth investing in? Keep reading this review so we can help you make up your mind.
In this digital age where selfies are trending, it’s not surprising that manufacturers of golf equipment have introduced this very useful gadget for us selfie-loving golfers! A SelfieGolf was designed to provide you with a quick and easy way to capture your swing. This way you can easily see which habits to drop and which areas need more practice.
So it’s safe to say that it’s the ideal product for players who want to perfect their swing in a hassle free manner. I’ll have to warn you that this product doesn’t come cheap. But after you’ve experienced the multitude of benefits it comes with, you’ll realize it’s worth every penny.
Practice Makes Perfect
First off, to get the perfect shot you need a lot of practice. And it’s much easier to see where you’re going wrong if you can view the actual shot. Granted, you can always rely on your coach’s feedback, but this gadget will allow you to play the video over and over again. Only then can you analyze the swing, position and angle you tried before & find ways to improve it.
That’s what this SelfieGolf will help you do thanks to the recording system. This introspection is further made easy because the unit is very steady thanks to the clip on design. You don’t have to worry about missing any important detail.
For the price, I’m not surprised that it’s made of high quality material and features a solid construction. This means you won’t be making any repeat purchases any time soon because it’s built to last. I would know because I’ve had mine for a while now.
One thing you’ll appreciate is that though it’s sturdy, it’s surprisingly lightweight. This also makes it a very portable unit meaning you can place it in your golf bag and travel with all your important gear, with ease.
With this product, you have the option of pairing it with your favorite golf app. It even allows you to share videos with interested third parties like your coach for further feedback.
We love a bargain. And that’s exactly what you’ll get if you pick this product which comes with a number of useful accessories including:
- A phone clip
- A bag clip
- An extra pair of stick holders
- Storage bag for convenient storage & transportation
- Instruction manual
Easy Set Up
You’ll find this nifty gadget very easy to set up. And the best part is you can use it on almost any location making it a versatile unit. To install the device, simply follow these easy steps:
- Attach the aim stick to the clip holder
- Fasten the bag clip to any golf bag
- Snap the aim stick
- Attach your phone onto the stick
- Press play
Room For Improvement
A possible inconvenience is that the device that attaches to your bag is separate from the rest of the mounting system so practice extra caution to avoid losing it. Also, ensure you cover the tips on the alignment stick because they’re rather sharp. But overall it’s well designed.
You’ll appreciate how this device is compatible with both Apple and Android devices—regardless of size.
Pros And Cons
- Compatible with most SmartPhones
- Sturdy construction
- Easy to store
- Tips on aim stick are abrasive
- Instructions not detailed
- No landscape mode on camera
Overall, this product functions well and will help you perfect your golfing skills. I’m particularly impressed by how versatile it is because you can use it with any phone. Plus I love how it’s easy to use, considering the fact that I’m not that tech savvy!
It would be a good idea if the instruction manual came with more detailed information like the apps you can pair it with. But then again, you can always contact the professional and helpful customer service agents at SelfieGolf if you require assistance.
Is the product slightly expensive? Yes it is. But would I recommend it to a friend? Definitely. Besides, it did win the PGA best product of the year. And for the impressive functionality the product offers, I agree that the award was well deserved.
