DUOTRAC 2.0

Golf Starz Product Review – DuoTrac 2.0

If you are anything like me, your swing could use some work.  With two kids at home, finding time to golf is hard enough, let alone finding time to get a lot of range work in and lessons from a pro.  Because of this I have been in the market for a training tool that will help me make adjustments in my swing that isn’t over priced or over complicated.  While, I am excited to share my review of this product, I am a little embarrassed how much my swing needs work…be gentle.

Our friends over at DuoTrac sent us over their new club and body tacking system for us to review.  First thing I noticed was how easy this was to figure out and start using.  Download an app, put the sensor on your club (doesn’t matter what club, as long as it fits on the top of the grip), and put the other two sensors on your hips.  It didn’t matter if I was dry swinging or actually hitting the ball, I immediately got feedback.  To break this review down I am doing to take it step by step…

The App:

The app is very easy to navigate.  The app has a practice mode that allows you to take a swing and give immediate feedback on both your club and body movement.  The biggest plus side to this was being able to take multiple swings without resetting the app and getting quick fixes or suggestions based on the information collected.  The sensors are measuring your hips and the club face at four different times during your swing. When you are addressing the ball, back swing, your down swing, and impact.  I included some pictures of the feedback from the app with my swing below.  As you can see when your swing is correct you get a thumb up and when you are off you get a thumb down as well as a link on drills or suggestions to fix your mistake.  I plan on updating this blog after I am able to play around more with the DuoTrac more and are able to use more of the tips.

 

 

The app also included fixes and drills outside of the practice feature as well as tracks your performance over time.  The app is available for both Apple and Android.  We have both and each app operated the same.  Another great feature in the app.

Sensors:

The sensors were easy to use.  The hip sensors connect via Bluetooth and hook on to either your pants or belts.  I wore the sensors during a round of nine and never once felt like the hip sensors were falling off.  It does not take long to charge the sensors and they last for a pretty long time before you need to give them more juice.

The sensor for the club was easy to use as well.  It was easy to move it from club to club.  As you move it from club to club from time to time you will need to reconnect the sensors to the app.  Not a huge deal but can add a little time to your round or practice.  Now admittedly, the product is designed for range time. I notice I practice better on the course than the range so wanted to try it out.  Other than adding a little time moving the sensor from club to club the DuoTrac worked great both on the range and on the course.

Overall:

DuoTrac was easy to use and is very affordable.  If you are looking for ways to self-correct your swing, I would say give DuoTrac a try.  I have been using it for a couple weeks now and am seeing improvements.  I am looking forward to using the DuoTrac during winter training.  I plan on updating this blog in the near future showing the progress I am making.

You can pick up the DuoTrac here.
