Orange Whip Compact Review
The Orange Whip might just be one of the most iconic golf training aids. The principle is simple. The Orange Whip simulates the weighted head at the end of a flexible shaft, just like a golf club, but in a structure that provides more feedback to help golfers develop a consistent and athletic swing motion.
From Orange Whip:
Three key components that make up the patented design of the Orange Whip Compact: a weighted orange ball, a counterweight, and a flexible shaft.
The orange ball replaces the club head and allows you to focus on swinging naturally without worrying about the position of the club face. It’s weighted to promote a fluid swinging motion rather than a jerky hitting motion.
The counterweight balances the Orange Whip Compact, stabilizing your swing from the start through the finish. It’s essential in providing critical feedback on whether you are loading and unloading the golf club properly.
Our proprietary shaft naturally promotes the need to swing in rhythm creating synchronization between your arms, upper body, and lower body. The result is a perfect tempo and balanced swing creating more consistent and powerful shot making on the course.
Feedback from the Orange Whip Compact is instant and any wobble in the swing indicates a need to improve tempo and balance. Swinging it, you will naturally find the Tour-like motion needed to be a better golfer.
At 47.5″ the traditional Orange Whip trainer might be a little difficult to swing freely inside and may be too long to help women or junior golfers. Enter the Orange Whip Compact. The ideal swing aid for indoors and out, men and women, and golfers of all ages.
The Orange Whip Compact is 35.5″ long, which means you don’t have to clear out too wide an area for swinging. It is a great solution for apartment dwellers who have limited space for practice at home and for golfers living in cold climates that are forced indoors for the winter.
The shorter shaft is designed to provide a similar degree of feedback as the mid-size and full-length versions. The compact length is also great for practicing your iron shots, whereas the full-length Orange Whip is geared towards simulating driver motion.
In our experience in training with the Orange Whip Compact, we found that it was really helpful for promoting good tempo. It was particularly useful to spend 5 or so minutes taking practice swings with the Orange Whip before a round to get started on the right foot, as opposed to going in cold turkey and needing the first few holes to warm up. It’s also just kind of fun to use, so picking it up for a few minutes indoors everyday to work on swing motion was easy, not tedious.
