Center Gravity Ball (CGB)

Center Gravity Ball $39.95
7.1 Reviewer
Pros
- Provides accurate feedback through ball movement (if your initial setup is good) - If your stroke is off, the CGB wonโ€™t lie. - Easier on your back than similar aids (Ie. the pill, putting wheel, etc...because you don't have to stand up the ball every time). You can just maneuver it into place with your putter rather than bending down and having to stand it up every time. - No matter what your putting style is, this aid gives golfers feedback on their impact - The geometric shape of the Center Gravity Ball provides better feedback than other aids (refer below for further explanation) - Can use with wedges (chipping) - Portable
Cons
- Setting up the CGB can be time consuming - Not easy to align - More expensive than competitors (the pill and putter wheel) but on the flip side it provides better feedback

Three versions (Free/Elite/Coach)
9.4 Reviewer
Pros
- Free to try, Easy to use, App works really well - Makes swings easy to compare so you can find your swing fault (refer below in review for further explanation) - The setup is hardest part without a stand (I made a diy stand) - Great app for practice (refer below in review for further explanation) - Revolutionary technology!!!! Nothing that comes close to it!
Cons
- Lacks on the drawing tools (other apps have different colors and shapes you can draw with) - All features worked perfectly except the auto plane line feature (On the positive side, you can manually adjust the plane line in the app) - Even if you are able to figure out your swing fault with the app, you might not know how to fix it. That being said, you need to know that there is a problem before you can fix it and that is what the app can provide...a greater chance that you will figure out your swing fault. - Not available on andriod devices

GripIt Rite

$21.11
8.6 Reviewer
Pros
- Can use the training grip with all your own clubs, during practice or play - There are different sizes (jr, small, regular, womens) - Can adjust it to be neutral, weak, or strong with the scope - inconspicuous device (other players won't notice if you're using the device) - Feels like you're holding your normal grip cause the bottom is your own grip
Cons
- Not Easy to take on & off clubs; the difficulty will depend on the the grip size & type (multiple customers on various review sites stated that) - After a few swings the grip aid moves, then you have to realign the aid with the scope - Does not address all aspects of a good grip (grip pressure, short thumb vs long thumb etc. read more below in effectiveness) - If you have really big hands or small hands it might be an issue if you pick the wrong size (I say this because you can't open up the package and try the aid out ex. small male hands might need a womens grip rite)
