Optimize your golf or baseball swing

Whether a novice or professional, the Swing Speed Radar from Sports Sensors will help you maximize your distance and control to take your game to the next level. A valuable aid for players of all ages and skill levels, the Swing Speed Radar is a powerful tool for coaches and instructors everywhere.

“It’s not how hard you swing, but how well you swing.”

The Swing Speed Radar is a small microwave Doppler radar velocity sensor that measures the swing speed of golfers and baseball/softball players. However, over-swinging can produce poor results. The Swing Speed Radar helps you improve both metrics by measuring your swing speed, determining the best speed for optimum performance, monitoring your swing consistency, and selecting the club or bat characteristics that best suit your swing type. Golfers can use the device to determine the optimum swing for distance, control, and accuracy, while baseball/softball players can work on honing their bat speed to create consistently solid contact. The Swing Speed Radar’s real-time velocity feedback helps players and coaches measure improvements and troubleshoot swing mechanics.

Instructions for Best Results

To measure golf swing speed, merely position the Swing Speed Radar in a forward location about 8 to 10 inches directly away from the tee. In baseball or softball applications, meanwhile, you can hang the device on a batting cage, pop-up net, or fence, or mount it on a tripod about 5 feet in front of or behind the player while he or she swings in the air or hits off a tee. By locating the Swing Speed Radar at a height that corresponds to the plane of the bat swing, the bat speed is measured “out front” of the batter in the hitting zone, which is where contact with the ball produces the best results. Put another way, the device measure the speed of the barrel of the bat, not the tip. This makes the Swing Speed Radar a great tool for helping you select the optimum bat size and weight for your swing.

What’s in the Box?

Your purchase includes a nylon drawstring pouch for carrying your Swing Speed Radar and two snap hooks for attaching it to your equipment bag or hanging from a net for bat speed measurements.

Care of Your Swing Speed Radar

The Swing Speed Radar is a unique electronics product intended for training and practice situations. Although the rugged design will withstand the rigors of normal use, it should be protected from golf club, bat and ball impacts; should not be dropped or thrown; or exposed to precipitation, or immersed in water or other liquids. Do not use or leave outdoors during inclement weather. Store the Swing Speed Radar in typical in-house environments, avoiding excessive temperature extremes, humidity, dust and dirt. The Swing Speed Radar can be cleaned with a slightly damped, soft cloth. Do not use alcohol, solvents, or chemical cleaners which can cause permanent damage.

    This will help improve your game I’ve been playing this silly game for decades and up to now the only feedback I could get (besides a teacher watching my swing) is how far does the ball go on the range or course. I know that hitting it farther depends on solid contact and club head speed. This product gives you an accurate assessment of the latter. In the first two weeks I had it, my results were pretty dismal, 85-89 mph. I have a relatively low handicap so not a duffer by any means and these results were discouraging as I…

    I’ve owned this fine swing radar for over 6 months I’ve owned this fine swing radar for over 6 months,now. I thought I’d give some perspective from a regular user. I’m 81 and can still swing over my age and score under my age (sometimes).The most important thing I’ve found to improve distance is to swing with your maximum club head arc. You’ve noticed that better golfers always swing with their lead arm straight. Well, this is why. You can swing with your lead arm straight and still not achieve your maximum arc, but you cannot…

    Sometimes the truth is painful this product delivers as advertised. i set it up about 30 degrees to ball impact and it gave consistent readings. as i make minor adjustments to set up and swing it verifies if i’m on the right track in my thinking. interesting how the club head speed is influenced by shaft length My nine iron is 30 mph slower than driver.. i now understand how the long drive contest hitters get more speed from drivers with shafts over 43 inches. if you are thinking of new clubs i would get this to use while…
