Momentus Speed Whoosh Golf Trainer
You’ve most likely seen it on TV or heard about it about it through your friends. The Momentus Speed Whoosh Golf Trainer is gaining more and more attention. Why? Because if you believe what Momentus is saying about the Speed Whoosh, it can increase your golf swing speed. Those of us that have been around long enough, know that increased swing speed equals increased yardage. Usually in the neighborhood of 2.5 to 3 yards for every 1 mile per hour increase or decrease in swing speed.
- Average PGA Tour Club Head Speed = 100 M.P.H.
- Average Golfers Club Head Speed = 80 M.P.H.

The thought behind the Speed Whoosh is that your body is made up of both slow twitch and fast twitch muscle fibers. If you continue to do what you’ve always done with your golf game, your slow twitch muscle fibers will continue to fire as they’ve always done but your fast twitch fibers will stay relatively dormant. So, read the directions and then grab onto the Momentus Speed Whoosh Golf Trainer. My recommendation is to swing like you would normally swing with the exception of not striking the ground on your downswing. If you were to look at your golf swing speed with a device such as the Medicus Power Meter and do a before with your normal swing (using your driver) and follow that up with a half dozen swings or so with the Speed Whoosh, you should notice an increase in swing speed up to 20 mph and beyond with the Speed Whoosh as compared to your driver. With the increase in clubhead speed by using the Speed Whoosh, your fast twitch muscle fibers start firing. Now if you were to pick up your driver and do an after swing, you should pick up 7-10 mph over your previous result with your same driver. With the same conditions (temp, wind, etc…) you should see an increase of 21-30 yards in your drives.
What I like about the Speed Whoosh is the sound that you get (whoosh) as you are swinging the club. Another added benefit is that you are able to work on the lag in your swing. This is something that is a definite bonus for me because I found that I was releasing my wrists and hands way too soon. To test this, you put the magnetic timing ball just past the grip on the Speed Whoosh and make your normal swing. If the ball hits the end of the shaft before you’ve hit the bottom of your downswing, you are releasing (un-cocking) your wrists/hands too early. This immediate feedback is what told me that I did not have enough lag in my swing. After a dozen or so swings (and continued practice), I can now feel the magnetic ball hit the end of the shaft at the bottom of my downswing. Woohoo. Mission accomplished thanks to the Momentus Speed Whoosh.
I’ve just gotten back into golf after a relatively long layoff. Yes, I play each year but not enough lately to make any improvement in my game. This past year the passion returned for me and I’ve purchased a bunch of golf gadgets that both make the game of golf easier and will hopefully improve my game. Yes, upgrading from a 20+ year old set of clubs is a tremendous bonus in and of itself. I added 20-30 yards to my drive with just a change in my driver. Now, truth be told I do not have a device that measures clubhead speed at home. I’m looking into both the Medicus Power Meter and Sports Sensors Swing Speed Radar at the present moment and am open to any suggestions. Having said that, I am unable to measure before and after speed in my Momentus Speed Whoosh review. However I do feel an increase in swing speed. Hopefully I’ll be able to substantiate that soon.
Final Thoughts: Momentus Speed Whoosh Golf Swing Trainer
Although the Speed Whoosh weighs approximately the same as my current driver, I find that it is much easier for me to warm up by using this device instead of using my driver. Now, you are not going to fix a duck hook or slice just by practicing with the Speed Whoosh. However you can do what this product was intended for. That is to increase your clubhead speed for increased yardage on the course and work on your point of release (lag) which comes from the timing of your golf swing. Talking about the lag, I found that if I actually slowed down my swing and worked on my tempo while using the Speed Whoosh, I could get the clicking noise of the magnetic ball at the bottom of my swing. Then, I gradually worked on speeding up my swing while maintaining that same lag. My only caveat is to not hit the ground (hard) with the Speed Whoosh as I could see that causing potential problems in the longevity of this device. Overall, I think the Momentus Speed Whoosh Golf Swing Trainer is a great product that can help beginner and intermediate golfers alike.
The Speed Whoosh works 2 ways: 1) It increases club head speed, resulting in more distance & 2) The proprietary Magnetic Timing Ball improves timing. The Speed Whoosh is a revolutionary club head speed accelerator that activates the fast twitch
