Yes. Here’s why. A slice is predominantly caused by an out to in swing path caused by the golfer “sucking” the club on the inside in the take away which results in a compensatory movement on the downswing in order to re-align the body and to try to get the club to ball. Set at the correct angle PlaneSWING quickly gets golfers aligned and swinging on the right path. Following the advice in the comprehensive instructional video you’ll learn how the biomechanics of the body work in relation to the golf swing and the importance of the grip, posture, alignment and body and arms sequencing and how this influences the rotational movement and stability throughout the swing. Regular and correct use with the weighted PowerSLIDER ingrains a motion that promotes width in the backswing and helps prevent excessive forearm rotation so the club doesn’t get too far behind you too early. You’ll instantly FEEL the difference. Wrist hinge will be easier and more natural and will allow you to complete the backswing. At this point the PlaneCHECKER (the attachment that fits into the ned of the PowerSLIDER) should be in line with the angle of the PlaneSWING. In the downswing you’ll experience lag while your hands will be in front of you as you rotate towards the target. Your impact position will be more dynamic with a level of shaft lean, allowing you to release powerfully to target with extension and with natural forearm rotation and wrist hinge through impact. This improved understanding whilst simultaneously training specifically the muscles used in the golf swing will provide you with the knowledge you need to take your game to a whole new level and with continued support from the PlaneSWING Team.
PlaneSWING® is effective specifically because you DO NOT HIT BALLS when in use. The effectiveness of PlaneSWING® is achieved by regular use of the PowerSLIDER™ which trains and conditions the golfing muscles. Using a golf club and hitting balls is not only dangerous and invalidates any warranty, it also defeats the object of PlaneSWING®, which is to ingrain a powerful and repeatable motion without the distraction of hitting balls. Once you step out of PlaneSWING® and hit balls, the results are dramatic and with regular use the positive change could become permanent. What we do suggest is taping up an old club (say a 4 iron – you may need to re-set PlaneSWING to a slightly steeper swing plane angle) and swinging slowly around the PlaneSWING upper hoop. This enables you to replicate the motion you’ve been training and to observe club face position.
Absolutely not. Our customers include Open Champion Darren Clarke, US Open Champion Dustin Johnson, PGA Champion Shaun Micheel, Tommy Fleetwood and Bryson DeChambeau. Five more different swings you’ll struggle to find. Plus we’re used by golfers of all levels in over 80 countries. We believe PlaneSWING® to be “teacher agnostic” and the most effective and versatile teaching, training and golf fitness system available. Whether you are an advocate of one plane, two-plane, Homer Kelly’s “Golf Machine” or the “Stack and Tilt” method, PlaneSWING® can help ingrain the motion you as a coach or player is looking for. The age-old swing hoop concept has been used by many of the World’s leading coaches and PlaneSWING is used now by Hall of Famer Randy Smith, Martin Hall of Golf Channel, Martin Chuck of Tour Striker Golf & Revolution Golf, Kevin Craggs coach to Colin Montgomerie and Paula Creamer, Mike Schy, Coach to Bryson DeChambeau, Allen Terrell coach to Dustin Johnson and PGA Instructors across 4 continents.
Every PlaneSWING package includes the PlaneSWING apparatus, the Stance Alignment Mat, Decals 1-12, PlaneCHECKER, PlaneGUIDE, Assembly Manual and video link, Instructional video link and long STANDARD PowerSLIDER (simulates driver to 5 iron). The Birdie package also includes the SHORT PowerSLIDER (simulates 6 iron – wedge) and the Eagle package the SHORT & Long LIGHTER PowerSLIDER (designed for ladies and juniors that have outgrown the PlayNSWING junior).
Simple! With PlaneSWING® you will receive a link to a comprehensive instructional video and the PlaneGUIDE™ (an elasticated bungee cord) which stretches across the PlaneSWING® from one side to the other. Assuming the correct grip and posture, when the hoop is adjusted to the correct angle, using the calibrated telescopic strut, the PlaneGUIDE™ should be slightly bowed across the sternum marginally below the midway point of the sternum (across the top of the arm pits). Start with the PlaneGUIDE™ at approx. 6in (15cm) above the halfway point of the hoop and slide up or down to find the correct setting. NOTE: With the longer PowerSLIDER™ (simulating a long club 5iron – driver) the PlaneSWING® will be set flatter. Conversely using a short PowerSLIDER™ will require the PlaneSWING® to be set at a more upright angle. Also, see “How to Use PlaneSWING®”. We are available 24/7 via email and phone to help you get the very best out of your PlaneSWING®
The weighted PowerSLIDERS stretches and trains specifically the muscles used in the golf swing. The hardened rubber sleeve on the PowerSLIDER builds slight resistance which encourages engagement of the core and bigger muscles. This aids body/arms sequencing, the secret to accuracy and power. It also helps create LAG in the transition, delivers a dynamic position at impact and a powerful release. Regular use will help build strength and increase clubhead speed and ball distance.
Simple. There are actually only 8 components with all other parts factory fitted. The comprehensive manual and assembly video take you through the process one step at a time. It’s a once only job and should take you 45 mins. Once assembled, PlaneSWING folds and rolls away in seconds!
Yes. We’re proud that golfers of all levels, renowned golf coaches and dozens of players on all the main PGA Tours use PlaneSWING successful. The fact that we are used by US Open Champion Dustin Johnson, Tommy Fleetwood, Bryson DeChambeau, Open Champion & Ryder Cup legend Darren Clarke and others supports our claim that PlaneSWING is for “Beginners to Major Winners”!
Yes. We believe that our support both before and after purchase is the best in the golf industry and our testimonials would seem to confirm that. We strive to deliver the best service and if ever we fall short we’ll act quickly at our cost to ensure that every customer is 100% satisfied. Much of our business comes from referrals and word of mouth.
Yes. Consistent with our Mission Statement, we have designed the PlayNSWING (Play & Swing) for children aged 3 to 10 years old with a maximum height of 4ft 7in (140cm). Note that after extensive research with junior (golfers & non-golfers) we chose not to have a junior PowerSLIDER but instead to use a PlayNSWING club. Our research showed that excessive weight in a club for a child prevented a natural rotation of the upper body and hinging of the wrists. This has proven very successful.
Yes. Simply swing in the opposite direction. Around 12% of our customers are left-handed with a greater percentage in Canada due to ice hockey!
The powder coated steel construction is weather resistant. It is an extremely robust piece of equipment. Given this is a lifetime investment in hardware we recommend that you always keep your PlaneSWING dry and free of dust. Plus it folds and rolls away on wheels in seconds for easy storage.
One of Tony’s concerns with alternative hoop trainers was the tendency of golfers to corrupt their spine angle when checking whether or not the roller or club was on plane. To remedy this we have developed the PlaneCHECKER™. This simple tool (looks like a lollipop) fits into the end of the grip of the PowerSLIDER. Golfers can now check at a glance whether or not they are on-plane (consistent with the plane angle setting of the PlaneSWING). Fitting into the butt of the PowerSLIDER, the PlaneCHECKER is a simple reference point for golfers to check their hand plane without standing and corrupting their spine angle. It also provides feedback in the transition, impact and release!

We are the world #1 for good reason. Design; performance and support. No other swing circle can boast the testimonials, the distribution and the high profile users that PlaneSWING can. We have sold over 400 PowerSLIDERS and PlaneCHECKERS to other swing circle owners and over 200 numbered decal sheets. Note that we do not pay for any endorsements.
You can but here’s our advice. Never hit balls when using PlaneSWING. It’s designed for slow, extended movement using the PowerSLIDERS so that you stretch and train specifically the muscles used in the golf swing thereby creating motor-skill change by ingraining a repetitive motion on YOUR ideal swing plane. When coaching we do sometimes use a club as part of the process. This is an old 4 iron taped up to prevent damage to the PlaneSWING. We don’t swing we move slowly around the hoop to better understand how the body and arms relate and the impact this has on the path of the club and the club face.
