This is one of the best training aids I have used. Great aid to grove your Swing and keep it on plane.
We're so glad you like The Golf Boks. My goal was to make it a visual training aid that would do exactly what you stated. Your kind words made our day.
In a world where so much is complicated, The Golf Boks team has figured out an effective way to derive tactile feedback on the golf swing. Would recommend!
Thank you Erik!
We're so happy to hear that you've gotten great feedback from The Golf Boks. That's exactly what we built it for. We look forward to watching you and your family keep improving!
I have a box full of several training aids. Gotta say this is the one I use the most. Quick, helpful feedback on your swing. The golf boks helps put into the right positions to improve your set up, swing plane, and contact.
Thank you Seth! We're so glad to hear you're loving The Golf Boks.
Just got my box today and was very excited to use it. Overall it’s a cool product, but not at all durable.
The boxes are made from regular, delivery box cardboard. It’s not any more or less durable. The description makes it out to be durable cardboard, but it is not.
It wasn’t shipped in another box. They do tell you this, but downplay how much scuffing and damage can occur during transit. Also, it’s annoying having postage stickers and tape all over the boxes.
Mine lasted all of a couple hours. One bad swing clipping a box is game over - it will tear it up like the cardboard box that it is.
I’m sure they have their reasons for not using another material, but functionally it really doesn’t make sense to buy a training aide like this that can’t withstand being clipped. Unless this an aide meant for only scratch golfers, you’re bound to get overconfident and connect with one of the boxes at some point. And when you do, it’s game over.
I’d highly recommend doing another version using the same foam that they use for the soft boxes at gyms for box jumps, etc. Costs may be higher but, but you’d have a much better product on your hands.
EDIT: Upgrading review from 2 stars to 4 stars due to the fantastic (and prompt) customer support I received from Sebastian and his team. While I do still think there are some kinks to work out with this product, I think it's well thought out and can be a great training aide, especially for those who are much better golfers than me and won't hit the box 😅
Thanks for sharing your review and feedback.
While the Boks will likely be damaged if hit by a swing, you will hopefully find that it is still capable of holding up an alignment stick afterwards. It seems like it is still functional in the image that you posted, even if it's not pristine anymore.
We also designed the Boks so that every 'HIP SWAY' hole matches the hole that you have the alignment stick in your picture. This way if that common swing plane hole is damaged beyond use, you can simply use any of the other holes to provide the same function. Hopefully this can extend the durability and lifespan of your Boks.
While we considered making the Boks out of other materials, we stuck with cardboard because while the product will damage more easily it is safer when struck. After being hit, yes the Boks will be damaged, but hopefully neither your club nor you will be damaged/hurt. This may not have been the case with other similar training aids that do not provide a foam noodle or give way when struck.
We hope that even though your Boks took some damage from being hit, you will still find it capable of holding up alignment sticks, and fully functional. And that after using it a little longer it provides you enough feedback to help you improve and see the value in it.
We truly appreciate your feedback and support, and hope that our reply helps you prolong the lifespan and use of your Boks.
The drills and training helped fix my occasional slice and hook and helped me develop a draw. Also improved my putting speed
