Not everybody has the same problems in their swing, and because of this, not everybody needs the same kind of training tool. With this in mind, we decided to eliminate the Rukket Flex and Rugd Sports Tempo. While they are both effective, they are simply too similar to the Sklz Gold Flex and Orange Whip Full-Sized, and we thought we could provide our readers with more value by highlighting more varied training aids.
Freeing up some space allowed us to add the Total Golf V2, which provides touch feedback when your arms stray from the best path, no matter where in your swing that happens. This also gave us room to add the Swing Right Now Compact, which works in a similar manner to the eliminated models, in that it utilizes a wobble as feedback to help you work on your tempo and consistency. Its smaller size means that it is more convenient to travel with and use in indoor spaces.
Perhaps the most unusual one is the Pro-Head Portable. Unlike the others that generally focus on helping you keep your arms in the right position, this one puts the focus on your head and body positioning, which is just as, if not more, important than the movement of your arms.

The Pro-Head Instant Improvement stood out as an option that focuses more on fine-tuning head and back position than swing motion and technique, which some users may prefer. Noted that while it’s unlikely the Izzo Smooth will dramatically improve someone’s swing, it’s an affordable tool that will help with basic arm positioning.
Golf Gruva Though considerably expensive and probably only for the most dedicated players, or perhaps as useful tool in a coach's arsenal, the Golf Gruva has a patented design that helps you develop proper rotation, wrist technique, and weight transfer, and swing principles, things that may otherwise takes years to master. golfgruva.com
