Timing
Computes timing information for each Key Position from Address through Impact and displays a numerical readout of the time elapsed for each swing segment, as well as, backswing, downswing and total time. It also converts this data into each segment's percentage of the total time and percentage of the backswing/or downswing. This information is conveniently summarized in a graph. A "Rhythm Ratio," based upon backswing/downswing times, is also displayed. 

Clubhead Speed (Side Swing Only)
Calculates primary (downswing) and secondary (backswing) clubhead speeds at various points before, at, and after Impact and during the backswing. It displays a miles-per-hour numerical readout. This information is also summarized in a graph. Load Data is computed: downswing time, Impact miles-per-hour and acceleration are shown. 

Measuring

Calculates angles automatically and updates degree-readout displays simply by moving pre-built angle line-pair elements. Measure distances by dragging-and-dropping line end-points over the span you want to measure. (Professional) Quick miles-per-hour measuring. Launch section utilizes special procedures for determining impact ball launch angle and ball speed.
