Tour Striker: Good training aid
July 1, 2011
The Tour Striker performs as advertised...that's hard to find with training aids. There are no gimmicks with this club. If you have the proper lag in your swing, you'll hit the ball well. I purchased this club to help me develop lag, but it showed me I already had good lag, which was just as helpful. Additionally, because the club head is smaller, it's good for developing an accurate and consistent swing (it doesn't have an over-sized sweet spot like most irons). One thing I found interesting was that I absolutely crush the ball when I hit it well. I hit my normal 8 iron between 140-150 yards...I hit this club, which is supposed to be lofted like an 8 iron, about as far as I hit my 5-6 iron.
Pros:- Performs as advertised
- Built well (i've used mine for 6 months)
- Forces you to swing with lag
Cons:- It's frustrating :)
