“I didn’t realize how quickly I could pick up hitting the sweet spot until I used the iS1.”
Phil Kim was flabbergasted.
Alexander Acevedo was amazed.
And Frankie Coiro? He became an instant convert.
These three golfers took part in on-camera trials of the Impact Slot Trainer (iS1), with their swing data measured before and after a brief practice session with the new training aid.
None had seen or used the iS1 before. All achieved remarkable results.
Here’s a sampling of what Phil, Alexander and Frank – as well as the other testers – had to say about the iS1:
“After using the iS1 for only about 10 minutes, maybe a handful of swings, my average drives improved by 27 yards. The consistency and the dispersion got so much better, which is what golf is all about. It’s about your worst shot, it’s not about your best shot. My worst shot got a lot better using the iS1. I’ve never used a training product that (gave me) this much improvement in such a short period of time.
“I think a lot of golf clubs today are almost too forgiving for practice and training purposes. When you go out and play you want something forgiving, but when you’re practicing you want something that’s gonna help you become more precise.”
“The iS1 is definitely the best training product I’ve ever used.”
“I knew immediately if I hit it on the toe or the heel it would not perform very well, so I think I subconsciously was attempting to hit it in the center of that face. I think it’s a great training aid. And I love training aids.
“The iS1 caused me to focus on hitting the center of the driver. (Before using the iS1) I was hitting on the heel and the toe and pushing and pulling. Once I got this slot here into my brain to the driver, I was able to hit more consistent shots with the driver. I love it.”
“The feedback for me was instantaneous. I hit the first shot and I could feel it (hit) the inside because it had a little left to right spin (gestures that the ball flew to the right). I felt right away what was wrong. I mean, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. (It’s) very simple, and feedback is really crucial.”
“After I hit the iS1 and I went back to my own club – I went back to a 7-iron – I think I hit it the purest I’ve ever hit the club. I’m not kidding, no exaggeration. It was like a “Wow” moment. It was perfect.
“Everything about how I hit the ball after I utilized (the iS1), with my own club, everything was on plane, my tempo was much, much better, which is always an issue for me. I hit it absolutely straight, got all the extra distance.
“If I kept using this, I’d have to start reevaluating which club I’m going to use on the course because I’m getting so much more distance. Without any extra effort from me, I’m not swinging it any harder – I’m actually swinging it softer – it is a much easier game of golf this way because you’re not trying so hard. It just works beautifully.”
“It’s true, you kind of naturally improve your golf swing (with the iS1) because you’re not gonna continue to hit bad balls. You’re gonna hone your own swing till you make sure you hit it in the middle. So you don’t need somebody standing over your shoulder going, “A little more left. A little more right.” You can figure it out on your own.
“When I went back to hitting my own club, I hit my 7-iron 15 yards farther, which is huge… I’m not really sure what Smash Factor is, but I hear I have more and I’m excited about it.
“I have a ton of (training aids) in my garage, and most of them are in the corner and they have cobwebs on them because I try them for a little bit and they don’t really produce improvement. But this is the kind of thing that I would bring to the range every time I went and practiced.”
“After hitting a few balls with the iS1, I started to hit the ball more on the center. (When) I went back to my driver, I was hitting the ball, according to TrackMan, 20 to 25 yards farther. I had a better Smash Factor, it was straighter. There’s still improvement that can be made, but it was much, much better.
“ I never imagined I could improve so fast, because I’ve taken hours and hours of lessons and it didn’t seem to work, so that was amazing. I think the iS1 is the best training product I’ve ever tried. The results and the amount of time it took to get them (were) unbelievable.”
“After hitting the iS1, the driver started to improve. Distance, accuracy, and ball speed and clubhead speed. In just 10 minutes… I hit it over 25 to 30 yards longer just (from) using the iS1.
“I have a lot of (training) products, and I’m always interested in getting a new one. This by far is the best one I’ve seen in a long time. I’ve never gotten a training aid to give me 25 (to) 30 yards in 10 minutes… and if I keep using this thing I’m looking to get 40 or 50 yards.”
“It’s not a gimmick. I can understand the thought behind it, and I can understand the direction that you have to take to benefit from this club. Using the iS1 has added 20 yards in 10 minutes. That’s amazing. I’m sold. I’m completely sold on it.”
“After I used the iS1 for about 10 minutes, my distance went up about 20 yards. The biggest thing I think is that I had an awareness of the clubface, as far as hitting its center, than I did before I practiced with the iS1. My ball flight was definitely more penetrating and my clubhead speed was up as well.
“This has been the best training product that I’ve tried. I clearly got instant feedback and I definitely got improved distance in a short period of time.”
“I didn’t realize how quickly I could pick up hitting the sweet spot until I used the (iS1). After practicing with this and hitting it in the slot, when I used my real club I was getting 15, 16 more yards per swing, and I wasn’t doing that much different. It was making me make sure that the clubface was actually hitting the ball, and by doing that you hit the slot and it just easily takes off.”
