    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    I don’t get to the range as often as I should, which results in my golf swing being inconsistent. Over my 45 years of playing golf, I have seen, and even owned a number of items which promised accurate feedback and easy, convenient use. The SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer is the first such product I’ve used which actually delivers what it promises. (In the interest of fairness, I am not comparing the SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer to any of the electronic swing/striking devices out there; I only measured this against other similar “low-tech” products.)

    Like most golf-related training tools, the SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer has Pros and Cons. In my opinion, here is a list of each:
    PROS:
    1. Rugged and durable. All components are constructed of quality materials, and have held up under frequent use.
    2. Easy to use and learn from. Set-up isn’t complicated. It took me about ten minutes to unpack, read the directions, and start whacking away.
    3. Compact, and easy to clean and store when finished.
    4. Reliable, accurate feedback. This is probably the most important “PRO”, because if the SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer didn’t actually help me to attain a repeating, functional golf swing, it’d be worthless, right? By the way, I validated the feedback I got from the SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer at a driving range within hours of each session. The components of my swing, including address, ball placement in my stance, and the actual swing (from takeaway to follow-through) which I had nailed down with the Swing Trainer provided very good results when striking real golf balls. Every aspect of my ball-striking improved: distance, direction, and above all, consistency.

    CONS:
    1. This is a biggie if you care at all about the appearance of your lawn; using the SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer is GUARANTEED to result in divots. Even though we don’t have a manicured lawn on the front, side, or back yard, my Spousal Unit registered an immediate and strenuous objection to my golf-related excavation. Even if you only use it in one place, the rut will grow impressively in a short period of time. While the obvious solution is to buy a practice mat, a good quality mat is fairly expensive, and takes up a lot more storage space, plus you have to drag it out and put it away for each session.
    2. You have to be smarter than the equipment when it comes to installing it. Fortunately, after years of bending metal tent-pegs in our rock-hard clay “soil”, I used a steel spike and a sledgehammer to create holes for the Swing Trainer’s pegs. Otherwise I likely would have bent it by trying to force it in the ground. So, “Know Your Terrain” before installing it!
    3. If you make the mistake of setting up your SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer in a place visible to passers-by, your non-golfing neighbors will razz you, and any other golfers residing in your vicinity will come by to offer “helpful tips”. I make a practice of ignoring any and all wannabe “PGA Teaching Pros”, unless they also provide me with an ice cold bottle of “Swing Lubricant” at the same time. Still, these distractions can be irritating all the same.

    In summary, the SKLZ Pure Path Swing Trainer is a useful implement for instilling muscle memory and obtaining a “grooved, repeating swing”. Despite the “cons” I’ve listed, for most mid to high handicap golfers this would be a worthwhile investment.

    I have been playing golf for many years, and I have seen many golf training aids come along the path. So it’s easy for me to say, despite its looks, the SKLZ Pure Path training device isn’t the most ridiculous training device that I have seen. However, it’s not the best one either.

    About the construction of the unit:
    * The frame of the device isn’t sturdy, but the ground spikes do plant it firmly in the ground. This requires the base to be readjusted regularly (because the force exerted on the ball at impact causes the device to shift).
    * I don’t really see any benefit to the swing path for the club.
    * The rope really doesn’t help do anything.

    The benefits to this unit:
    * I do think there is some benefit for hand-eye coordination.
    * It seems to help somewhat for practicing ball impact.

    If your need help with just hitting the ball, then SKLZ Pure Path might be somewhat helpful for you for backyard practice. However, if you need help perfecting your swing, I would take a pass on this product.

    Hello Leah Maines,

    Thank you for your review. We appreciate feedback both positive and negative, as we strive to make the best possible products for our users. We have a very comprehensive line of golf training aids for golfers of all skill levels. While the Pure Path can be used by all golfers to help with feedback on ball striking and to help with consistent ball striking, this particular product was designed for beginner/high handicap golfers. It was designed as a practice device that would not require a net or balls, that could be used in your backyard for a very reasonable price. Please feel free to let me know if you have any additional feedback.

    Thanks,

    Tim
