Please take additional swings using a golf ball.  Air swings are not supported.

 

A certain thing must happen to use the sensor.  One of the main items that players must remember is contact is required to get a metric reading from the sensor. The user must make contact with a ball to get metrics.  Air swings will not register a swing unless that feature is turn on (Only supported on Blast Golf). 





Please align the sensor the sensor with the Blast Man Log’s Head with the toe of the club head. 


The alignment of the sensor is a very important part of utilizing the sensor. The Alignment works as the calibration of the sensor. When placing the standard grip attachment on the grip of the club. Make sure the attachment is flush with the top of the club grip.  Flip the top part of the attachment down so that it sits on top of the sensor. Insert your sensor with the blast man logo’s head aligned with the top of the clubhead. 

 


 



The alignment of the sensor needs to be as close as possible to the top of the clubhead.  There can be a 5% percentage variance to the left or right.  Anything outside of that and it wouldn’t work.
