He speed trap was developed to help you do two things, hit it longer and hit it straighter! this is accomplished by doing 2 things: 1. Trap the ball- catch the ball and then the turf. Create a nice crisp divot, hit it solid with Great trajectory and phenomenal spin. The polycarbonate base tells you instantly if you are scooping the ball or hitting it fat. 2. Swing on-plane- when you learn to swing the club between the speed rods, your club will be on plane and on path. Great for eliminating a slice or hook and ultimately leading to straighter longer shots. Also, an incredible tool for chip and pitch shots. This is a fun challenge that you simple have to try! works for right and left handed players (rotate the rods).
