A Momentus® Discussion
My good friend Mark Lobster, otherwise known as The Formalist, is a big fan of the Momentus Swing Trainer®. We had long stand up dining room discussion about the Duval endorsed device, which centered around the meaning of the clubs weightiness. The discussion ultimately demonstrated how the Momentus Swing Trainer and The Golden Swing Thing act as reciprocal devices. More on this in a moment.
Later in this piece I will put forward another axiom of golf. This law of the swing system will never be disproven. Now this really could be a momentous discussion ;~)
Note to current Momentus® owners: As a swing trainer the Momentus must be used in a training mode. Although the product has a professional endorsement, many teaching professionals frown on a product that is prone to cause injury if used improperly. Since the Momentus looks very much like an ordinary club many pros fear that the student will attempt to swing it full bore under the misguided notion that they are trying to build a "swing muscle." Don't overextend yourself. Use the heavy club conservatively and much can be learned.
Momentus® owners: try the following exercise:
supposition 1: The greater the mass outside the sensous sphere, the lighter the grip must be.
You don't have to be a Momentus® owner to try this one:
The big question: Which side felt lighter and which heavier. Go try the exercise, think on that a moment, then click here.
