Questions About The GEM
You may feel a wobble during the swing. This could be due to the club being too open or closed at the point of impact. We recommend slowing your swing down whilst using The GEM. Once you succeed in stopping the club from wobbling, the Gem has corrected your swing. The instructional video here provides a handy guide.
Never hit a golf ball with The GEM weighted ball on your club. You can hit a golf ball with the Short Rod (GEM ROD 3) attached to your club - just not the weighted ball.

Absolutely! The GEM was originally developed for inventor Fraser Mann's personal use to improve his short game. His belief that the club should be toe up on the backswing and then toe up on the follow through is accentuated in the short game.
The club face isn’t closed at any point on the takeaway and comes back to square at impact. This means that the chances of a ‘chunk’ are far less likely as the club isn’t in a position to dig into the ground before you strike the ball.
Use the shortest rod without the weight as a visual aid on a club you use from fifty yards. Do this regularly for a week and you will see a huge improvement in the consistency of strike.

The three rods provide varying levels of essential movement within the swing.
- Rod 1 - the longest of the three, gives the strongest sensation and provides the greatest change in swing action and muscle memory. It is not to be used whilst hitting balls.
- Rod 2 - the mid-sized of the three, provides a similar action to Rod 1. It has a subtler feel to it than Rod 1 and can be used with a full and faster swing. It is a great warm up tool before a round or a practice session. It is not to be used while hitting balls.
- Rod 3 - the shortest rod can be used to hit balls. It has the subtlest feel of the three. It is used as a visual aid as you move through the key positions in your swing, these being waist height in the back swing, impact position with the ball and waist height position in the follow through.
The GEM encourages a neutral swing plane which helps both slicers and hookers reduce their misses.
