Building on the success of the original HS-120A Launch Monitor, Japanese equipment manufacturer PRGR announces their new 2021 HS-130A model in cooperation with top speed training aid SuperSpeed Golf.
PRGR has been a prominent Japanese club manufacturer since the 1980s. SuperSpeed launched its line of Overspeed training aids in 2014 and quickly rose to one of the leading training aids in golf.
Launch monitors have become an essential tool for golfers to quantify their practice and play. Previously reserved for the top end professional golfer and coaches, technology has become much more accessible and affordable. This year’s HS-130A model packs a punch for accuracy and price. Offering measurements of club head speed with and without ball contact, ball speed, smash factor, carry distance, and total distance, it retails at $229.99.
New HS-130A features:
Those familiar with the previous model will notice a similar pocket size footprint, making it one of the smallest launch monitors on the market. The display is now slightly larger to accommodate 4 metrics shown at once in higher resolution.
To aid the user experience, the HS-130A includes a higher quality processor as well as a faster dual Doppler radar sensor. Combined with new launch algorithms, this creates more precise and consistent readings throughout the bag.
The key metric available to aid SuperSpeed club head speed training is its ability to measure club head speed without ball contact. This helps users track their speeds over a period of time to gauge their training progress. Furthermore, the PRGR now offers both metric and imperial measurements. The unit can be used both indoors and outdoors and keeps a history of 500 shots.
SuperSpeed began seeding on the PGA Tour at last month’s US Open at Torrey Pines with 3 players immediately adding it to their training tools. What stood out to the professionals most was how helpful it is to have a device that measures swing speed without ball contact; a feature the highest-end launch monitors don’t offer.
“The ability to partner with and offer the PRGR Launch Monitor to our SuperSpeed customers worldwide is very exciting for us. This new unit especially offers all the metrics we were wanting to ensure our users get maximum gains from using the SuperSpeed Training System” Kyle Shay CEO, Golf Digest Top 50 Instructor Trillium Rose
“The PRGR is what I use with speed training because it is one of the few on the market that accurately measures the speed without a ball. If you’re going to track your progress, you’ll need a reliable tool and this is a great choice for speed training.”
SuperSpeed’s website SuperSpeedGolf.com features exclusive packages combining a SuperSpeed set and PRGR or just the PRGR on its own and is available in most golfing countries around the world.
About SuperSpeed Golf
The SuperSpeed Golf Training System helps players increase swing speed through a concept called “OverSpeed Training”. OverSpeed Training resets the normal reaction speed of a learned motor pattern to something faster. This works by first reducing the weight of the golf club, therefore allowing the player to create a faster than normal golf swing. The brain “remembers” this faster speed as the training progresses through the three training clubs, which gradually increase in weight.
