DBS - Dynamic Balance System
DBS is a training tool to learn consistency in specific body motion parameters including address position, motion to the top of the backswing, tempo, balance, and target side stability. sportsbalance.com
"The biggest factor in controlling the golf ball is being able to produce repeatable actions. The DBS is the best system for providing the correct information in regard to center of gravity and balance. These are the two most important factors in being able to produce a repeatable golf swing!"

MEGSA Perfect Practice Equipment
As a golfer, all you can ask for is the "Most Efficient Golf Swing Attainable" or MEGSA. To train its students, Golf Academy of America uses MEGSA PPE, a golf training system that guarantees perfect practice every time it is used. It works by limiting the space in which the club and body can move, producing the desired swing mechanics. By allowing the golfer to make correct movements, it only becomes a matter of repetition before he or she has the most efficient golf swing attainable. megsappe.com
"The MEGSA equipment, in my opinion, can and will revolutionize teaching and the application of the golf swing."
