I suffer with fat shots and I honestly thought this could do wonders for me. I've had it for about 3-4 weeks, I've used it practicing 2-3 times a week and it's done absolutely nothing but make my swing worse.
Perhaps I haven't given it long it enough but I do not enjoy using it. It's very easy to catch the plate on the back swing, which is frustrating, as it will move. In general it is a complete distraction to have behind the ball.
Missing the plate is one thing, but doing it the correct way is another, and this just about sums up the FatPlate. This is what a fire alarm is to a house fire - it'll alert to a fire, but it won't put it out.
The concept of 'missing' something is negative in itself. Perhaps using this with a PGA Professional during coaching would be great but I would advise against buying this to practice without guidance, because this may cause more swing faults while the training focus is missing the plate.
Complete waste of money for me personally, and I'm very disappointed.
If you're looking for a training aid I'd highly recommend the Hanger by Watson golf.
Quick delivery, good quality and should work well. Really forces you to hit the ball properly !
So much fun. Easy to set up and hopefully will improve my game.
