Has anyone had luck or experience using the Momentus Driver? Pro's, Con's. Got one for sale cheap?

I have my father's momentus driver.

It definitely will help train your core muscles with continual use. The club is so heavy it will not allow you to swing off plane, so when you swing it consistently, your muscles will build up based upon it. If you try to swing it out of plane, you'll get instant feedback...

When my driving goes downhill, that is what I will pull out...

The idea of a heavy club/driver has been around for a long time. We used to make our own. It is a good way to develope more power, and a controlled swing.

I second the gets your swing on plane. i used one to warm up on the first tee, and then go to my driver and its awesome your swing just feels so much more in tune.

Stop by second swing, buy the biggest headed cheap driver you can find, drill a hole in the top of it, fill it with sand, duct tape it.....done.

The only risk with that is getting the head so heavy the shaft cannot handle it....thus..SNAP and you are out your cheap club. The momentus is weighted through the shaft as well, which will keep your body in tune and not allow the head to get ahead of the shaft...

Guys i'm a PGA teaching professional at [YouNeedAuthorization] in Minnetonka. The momentus driver is a good training aide to help with getting the arms more on plane in the down swing. The key is to swing slowly in order to feel the weight of the shaft fall with with gravity to get it on plane coming down.

if anyone has any questions about golf or their swing don't hesitate to ask.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
