Hi,

Has anyone used Momentus with RST or any other weighted clubs to increase power and speed?

Perhaps these aids can hurt more than help?

Thanks!

Horrible idea. Focuses on swinging the club rather than moving the muscles correctly. I'd prefer the golf club to weigh a few ounces so you could learn to move the body and arms correctly without the added momentum of the club while still being able to see clubface and shaft angle.

Generally, not speaking of technique and timing, but muscle adaptation, more than 10% increase in clubhead weight might in fact slow down your muscles due to the natural extreme muscle adaption rate, adaption to something heavy, which is too different from the real thing.

Golf is not a heavy weight sport, it is timing and sequence sport.

How about the swing fan, I used it in my RS1 swing for the broom drill, any benefit to RST?

How does one correctly and safely increase swing speed then?

Are there any recommended training programs that complement rotary swing?

speed is lag which is timing, technique, sequencing, mechanics.

In addition speed in golf is low force - high speed.  Like batting, like baseball pitching.  It is the muscle ability to contract fast.  The more muscle fibres that contract fast at the same time the more force can be added, fast.
 
One need fast fibres, well trained neural communication, good basic max power.
 
But the best way of swinging fast is to swing the actual club as fast as one can with the right technique and still hitting good shots.
A club being 10% lighter/heavier can be used in varied training.
 
I know Bruce Lee trained max power, speed and static muscle training in a combination, ending all sessions with max speed exercises.  Could be that this is a good way, but there is no exact way.
