About

We've all experienced it; hitting an amazing shot that you can't explain how you hit. The secret is we all have it in us. We just have to find our swing that made it happen. The magic of Balanswing is helping you find that swing and bring it out with subtle tugs and pulls on your muscles to help put you in position for success! 

Balanswing is a compression innerwear designed for golf through four years of research in fabric technologies, biomechanical analysis of golf swings, and kinematic functionalities. As golf lovers and fabric experts, we tried to encapsulate all that we know about swinging a golf club into this one shirt.

Much like the Kenesio tape that is used by elite athletes all over the world, the elastic silicon strips strategically embedded throughout the Balanswing shirt work as a gentle reminders to get you into proper positions as you swing.  The strips are not forceful enough to restrict you, they have just enough tension to provide awarness.  A strip goes across your chest to bring your shoulders together when you get into the address position. And the vertical strips on your back remind you to keep your spine straight. 

Balanswing provides a subtle but constant reminder to place your body in a correct golf posture.  Wearing it, you'll feel how it positions your arms in front of body, important to creating a connected golf swing.

Additionally, if you have bad adress posture (hunching, “S-Back”), the embedded strips on the back of Balanswing provide tension, letting you know to straighten your back because you don't have good posture.  But when you straighten your back and get into a good posture, it will feel normal.

So Balanswing promotes correct body positioning and posture that will produce more consistent swings, and hence, more good shots.

Similar training aids are cumbersome, difficult and sometimes plain ridiculous looking - straps and rubber-bands, golfing straight jackets - typical tools used to acquire a connected golf swing.  These types of gadgets can be distracting, like the classic ball between your arms drill.  Balanswing is a more natural solution that provides constant reminders of proper form and technique. 

Golfers are willing to go to a ridiculous length to acquire the elusive "connected swing".

Additionally, Balanswing is made for anytime you play golf, including on the golf course.  It's not just for practicing on the driving range.  The UV protection and moisture wicking material which helps keep you cool in warm weather makes Balanswing not just a training aid, but smart sportswear.

Balanswing is a unisex shirt with sizing given in the chart below. We'll send out a survey at the end of the campaign asking for size and color.

Established in 2014, Balanswing is a fruit of four years of labor of love by our team.  We had a huge break-through when Hyosung, a leading textile manufacturer in Korea, became our partner.  Things looked a little funny back then. But we have come a long way, and look where we are now!

Risks and challenges

We have completely finished the design and have produced a small quantity of prototypes, which we've tested with golfers. Our parent company, Hyosung, is a producer of various textile products and they will help us with manufacturing issues, material sourcing, etc. With the funds we raise from this Kickstarter campaign, we're confident that we can produce a quantity with quality enough for the needs of this campaign plus more.

As for international shipping, it is not possible for us to ascertain the duties and tariff policy of every nation in the world. Therefore, our price does not include the VAT or duties that may be charged by each country when crossing the border. We encourage you to research your country's tax and import regulations before pledging.
