Momentus Golf is one of the leading golf training brands out there. A while back, I had a chance to try out their signature Power Hitter Driver as well as their indoor driver (It’s a small heavy driver you can swing for indoor use) and both were superb.
This time around, I had the pleasure of trying out their two irons used to help build golf strength and improve iron play. Both of these were so much fun to use and I’ll evaluate both of these clubs here for you.
These two clubs are the Power Hitter Iron and the XL Iron and both are perfect for range practice. Here are some key things I enjoyed from both of them.
Power Hitter Iron – Similar to the awesome Power Hitter Driver, the Power Hitter Iron is a heavy iron that helps improve iron consistency and distance. When I was hitting some shots on the range, I was feeling my muscles work and was getting that sensation (Or pain, whatever you want to call it) you get that tells you that your muscles are building a little.
This iron is about as good of a golf workout tool as any. Who knew that just bashing a bunch of balls on the range would help build strength and burn calories?
Bobby Jones had once said that hitting balls on the driving range is a great way to gain strength and hit further out on the course. Well, the Power Hitter Iron is definitely your friend here and makes for an excellent routine on the range.
One thing I really loved was that after hitting some shots with the Power Hitter Iron, I felt like I had more control of my swing. When I grabbed my wedge, I felt very confident swinging and I was able to hit a few shots close to the pin on the green out on the range.
I felt like I was much more in control with my wedge than before. I didn’t feel the need to take a full swing to hit a decent shot and I was making more solid contact with the ball.
The Power Hitter Iron is certainly a beast and is just a wonderful club when practicing on the range. After all, you use your irons more than any other club and the Power Hitter helps you get in complete control of them.
XL Iron – OK so this is seriously one of the coolest things I’ve seen in the history of ever. The XL Iron is an iron and has weight on it just like the Power Hitter Iron.
However, the “big” difference is the size of the clubhead. It’s freaking gigantic! When they said “XL Iron” they certainly weren’t joking.
It has more than just looks as it is an excellent training tool. The reason that the clubhead is so large is that it helps you on your backswing and follow through with air resistance to help you keep the head square every time you swing.
So when you swing this beauty, you’ll feel the weight of the head during the backswing and this is your feedback in regards to whether your swing is correct or not. You’ll feel the tilt of the head thanks to its large size so you’ll know if you’re going to be too open or close at impact.
Like the Power Hitter Iron, the XL Iron also is great for building strength and is a great club to swing before hitting balls on the range. You may also catch the attention of your fellow golfers as they look at your club with wide eyes and such.
This club really will help develop a more square clubface and that’s one of the most important aspects of a golf swing. We all want to make perfect contact with the ball without shanking or chunking it and having a square face is crucial to pure contact.
And that’s what makes the XL Iron such a powerful tool. Swing it a few times, and your mind will get used to a proper backswing a follow through when going back to your normal clubs.
The XL Iron also is great for your driving game. Although it’s an iron, the size of the head makes it beneficial for all clubs and as mentioned, helps you build those key golf muscles so when you grab your driver and tee it up, your swing speed will likely improve.
The club is short enough for indoor practice as well but make sure you have enough room as well, remember, it has a giant clubhead. But, it’s a great club to throw in your bag and take to the range, or maybe you just want to work on your iron game like I did where I brought a couple of irons and the XL to the range.
Overall, Momentus Golf has once again done an excellent job with helping golfers play better through training. Cool thing is, these are fun ways to get some great exercise while still enjoying the sport you love.
