How the Perfector was born:
The Perfector was born out of a chance encounter between a PGA Teaching Pro and an engineer on his first golfing lesson.
The Pro, a thinking man, who regards golf in an almost religious way, searched for an easy precise drill or teaching aid to move the golf club on the back swing from an address position into the position where the left arm is parallel to the ground; whilst keeping the club head travelling ON PLANE. The troubled Pro knew there should be a better way and duly spoke to the client, an engineer, regarding some sort of device.
The engineer noticed that sticking alignment sticks in the ground was less accurate than it might be and, of course, they could not be used in the indoor range.
The engineer took up the challenge and between the two of them the Perfector was born 9 Months later. Although the gestation time was the same as a human embryo, the Perfector is a whole lot quieter at night. A portable swing plane training aid.
Swing Plane Perfector for the general golfer:One of the hardest concepts for golfers who are trying to improve and those who are social golfers to understand, is the concept of precision and immediate feedback in the small amount of time that they have to practice.
The PERFECTOR gives players both of these vital elements. The precision comes from the constant plane angle and base line and the feedback is immediate visually and kinesthetically. This allows the golfer to notice the changes he/she is making the second he/she has made a swing or completed a drill.
The small light PERFCTOR also allows golfers to take their practice regime anywhere with them so that within 3/4 minutes they can be up and running practising perfectly, even INDOORS.
15 minutes a day working with the PERFECTOR will improve your PLANE , PATH and CLUBFACE at impact.
Uses for the Golf Professional / Coach:Note: This message is from the product inventor, Les Coe.)
As a teaching professional myself, I recognized that there were tasks that I needed to do be able to achieve and changes to students that I needed to make that were really challenging my abilities because of the lack of suitable equipment.
Firstly on the indoor range I could not set up any work/teaching station with an inclined pole or tour stick because you cannot push them into a solid floor.
This was the beginning of the PERFECTOR. The PERFECTOR allows any coach to incline a tour stick on any surface !!
Also the visual of an inclined plane attached to a base line is hard for students to imagine - now they do not have to. The visual and kinesthetic feedback changes them so much.
Videoing becomes easier and more precise due to the camera being able to be set up directly down the plane line. Setting up median lines and positioning tour sticks to deprive students of lateral movement room is so much easier too. In fact the list of uses only finishes with how far your imagination travels.
I use mine in the majority of my lessons in one way or another, it is quite simply essential for me, my coaching and my students.
Used by Tour Pros!Elite golfers by definition are precise, predictable and constant in the way that they approach their practice and playing. Most, if not all, keep a constant record of their statistics whilst on the course and record of their practice regimes and results on the range.
The PERFECTOR gives the elite golfers an absolutely constant set up for these practice sessions, an ability to carry on from one day to the next without the worry of differentials in the setup. The base line alignment stick allows ball position to be kept exactly the same during practice, which is invaluable to club face alignment during the impact interval.
The PERFECTOR is perfect if used in their lesson environment too, as it is so small, light and compact that wherever they are going to play or practice, once the lesson has finished they can easily transport the PERFECTOR in their golf bag so that the continuity of the lesson/practice is kept.
Also many players, when away from their coaches, either at tournaments or practicing at another venue, video their swings to forward onto the coach for verification of changes. The PERFECTOR has another vital role, it allows the camera to be placed in exactly the correct position every time, so that the coach can see even the smallest change.

Coach to Rory Mcilroy
"The Swing Plane Perfector has allowed me and my students an accuracy and ease of consistent set-up with alignment sticks that, previously has been unavailable. It’s a real bonus that it works on the indoor range as good as it does on grass. The unit is light and compact and is easily carried in a student’s golf bag."
European Tour Player
The Swing Plane Perfector fits in with my practice regime perfectly. I take it to every tour event I play as I’m looking for consistency and precision, the fact that it is small and weighs next to nothing is an added bonus.
