Hello everyone, does anyone here have purchase or try out swingbye before?

It is a small device which tie on the shaft and when you swing as per normal, it will give you your swing data and club face contact on the way..
any feedback???

I bought 1 from eBay.
It's quite interesting that it will show u exactly how your shaft moves through the whole swing, it provides information like lie angle, club face angle, in-out etc at both approach and impact, telling you if it's straight, slice or hook etc.

Not so easy to gauge the alignment especially with the longer club. I mean if you don't fix it correctly, all the angles captured will be wrong.

I have a problem when I used it, maybe it's because my swing is v inconsistent, when I hit the ground hard first, the device alignment will get displaced. Another problem I had which I think is related to the above is that the charging port became loose and I couldn't plug my USB cable for charging.

Sent them an email and they were quite willing to replace. Hence have shipped it back to USA, shipping is abt $8.

Overall, quite fun to use. Should get from Singapore (learning tee) in case of problems I faced (save on shipping).

I paid $224.81 (including shipping).

I complement it with video.
For example, I look at the videos for the reasons why the statistics are as shown, then I compare swings to pinpoint what I should change or keep.

I've bought one from Learning Tee, too. Very good service.

The device is quite useful but you must be very careful with the orientation. If it's slightly off, the data it captures is not quite correct. It was reporting my ball flight as a slice even though it was drawing. As another bro said, sometimes after you swing, the device is displaced and you must reorient it.

The other thing is the software. The earlier version was quite buggy. The newer ipad version seems ok, though.

It's quite nice as it captures your swing path for all clubs, including your putter. Overall, I found it to be fairly accurate and cannot complain as the price was around $230+ if I remember correctly.
