  • Cathy M. Mistovich - Appeals to wide range if skill levels and interests.

    Like the variety that appeals to a wide range of golf skills and new interactive feature for instruction pieces. Like the interviews as well.

  • Beth - Strength!

    While taking Test Freak I noticed a lot of strength gains. I set new PRs for my deadlift and squat and felt I was able to push heavier weights for more reps than I used to be able to. I felt that all my workouts were more intense and I got the most out of my workouts. Also saw more muscle definition while taking Test Freak.

  • LonePine - Promising but very disappointing

    The product sounds good in the video, but it does not deliver. The documentation is inadequate and the functioning is very spotty. It sort of works and then a little while later it does not work — which is *not* what I want when I need to depend on something. I was just very very disappointed. The developer/ manufacturer has not invested in enough testing, and not even in good documentation of how you are supposed to try to make it work. I'm not even sure why I would give it two stars. I have only so many days I can give to playing around with this. The Tile tracker that I acquired earlier (which does not have a replaceable battery, unfortunately, and so has a higher cost longterm) works very well. Big difference.
