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.

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.

    • You eat bass and you're going to rip on some grapefruit Shandy? Your self-righteousness knows no bounds.
    • let us know when there weren't racial tensions.
    • I was thinking the same thing, but when I don't see it listed with the features I don't want to go off my own assumption. I sent Tebben a couple emails 2 days ago and hadn't heard anything yet.  I'll give Berkon a try and see what they say.
    • There is a side bi-fold ramp that is similar to the one in the back. He had an aluminum "blank" made to fit in its place so that he could use it as a regular trailer if needed. He still has the ramp and it bolts in when you need it by removing the blank. Not the same brand, but would look similar to this with the side ramp installed...
       
    • Strange, there were racial tensions in 1992, i wonder if there's a coinsidence... Clinton model of divide and conquer.
    • Just remember, for every 1 wackjob chiro there's probably 10 surgeons that don't give a rip about you unless they're able to get surgery approved.  Meaning their advise and prescribed narcotics/injections will eventually lead you to a pay day.  We can't be so naive now folks, but let's all dive into this one case and attempt to destroy the practice while we turn a shoulder to the other, that happens WAY more often.    That number of 10-1 is pretty light by the way.
    • Just for reference, Clinton was elected in 1992 and took office in January 1993. 
    • Sorry I forgot to add, I didn't build on this one, already came built so the brakes were on already. (I built my last one however) But I did look at the Berkon frames before I bought because I was going to build again myself and pretty sure that they had the brakes already. (At least the ones I looked at in their catalog) But I feel like any brand at that size should come with the brakes already, since a 20' house is going to go over the 3k limit.
    • Thanks for the reply trav102, the Berkon frame looks pretty similar to the Tebben and it looks like they do galvanized trailers pretty regularly. Did yours come with trailer brakes?  Or is that something I'd have to add on myself if I go over 3000#?
    • Do the sides in the front come off For your ramps your do they drop down and you use your own?
