Claims:

What I claim as my invention is that there has never been a weighted swing trainer for golf designed, constructed or balanced likes the powerstik:



1. The unique balance of the PowerStik is created by the 500-gram, round stainless steel head-attached to a 100 gram steel shaft with a 50-gram grip attached.

Description:
[0001] Attaching a stainless steel golf shaft into a 500-gram weight stainless steel head makes the PowerStik. The head is a completely unique design. It is two inches in diameter and 1.280 inches in depth. The hole, which the shaft fits in, is 0.375 inches in diameter and 1.0 inch in depth. The edges of the head are beveled and it is perfectly round in shape. The shaft is connected to the stainless steel head with 2000 lb tensile strength glue, and a rubber golf grip is inserted on the top of the golf shaft.

DESCRIPTION OF THE POWERSTIK

[0002] The PowerStik is a weighted swing trainor for golf. It consists of three parts—a stainless steel head,steel golf shaft and a rubber grip. It is used to strenghthen the muscles used in a golf swing. The weight ratio of the club or balance of the materials, has never been patented or manufactured.

[0003] I hereby apply for a provisional patent based on these claims.
