Product Overview

Price excludes Sales Tax/VAT

The DST Compressor 8 Iron warm up club comprises all aspects of the DST patented technology. The scientifically curved shaft replicates the shape of a normal shaft under its maximum load during impact, the DST Compressor forces you into a position where your hands lead the club face through impact and control it until after the ball has been struck. The curved shaft combined with the DST Impact Line enables you to locate a set up position and practice returning the club to the same position through impact every time. The DST Compressor forces you to feel the same movements and sensations as the greatest ball strikers in history and develop a repeatable, reliable movement through impact. The DST Compressor forces you to locate, train and perfect the optimal impact position.

Technical Features

The sole of DST clubs have been designed to be wide and flat, so when a player sets up in a conventional address position and then pushes their hands forwards the sole of the club will orientate itself horizontally to the ground due to the designed forward hosel lean. In this position the club has been designed so that DST Impact Line (the groove which runs at an angle down the front of hosel) will point towards the players eyeline. In addition the DST Impact Line will also appear to be aligned with the leading groove on the club head. In this position the leading groove and the DST Impact Line appear to be a continuation of the same line from the players perspective, the player will have located a set up position where the club shaft and their leading arm will be aligned with the center of the club head arc (their lead shoulder). From this position the player should make their normal swing and return the club to the same hand position through impact.

    DST Compressor 8 iron

    Very good trainer club. I use it in my indoor hitting bay each day to feel the proper powerful impact position. It has changed my setup position as well. Good product.

    This club should be added to anyone's bag who wants to understand forward shaft lean at impact. Needed this 15 years ago when I first took up the game. Thanks DST golf for changing the way the swing is learned.

    I like swinging with this, but honestly just seeing it in my practice area reminds me of the concepts and feel. I'd recommend buying this.

    At first I thought this felt strange. After swinging the club a couple of days I started to actually FEEL the club and I found how I was not anywhere near having my hands in the right position at impact. It is making a difference in my swing. I have more confidence with my irons. I am a believer in this club Frank C

    I feel much more powerful after using the club. Getting fully onto the left side and using the big muscles much better now. I feel like I am rotating much more later in the swing.

    DST Compressor 8 Iron

    Posted by David Carmichael on 5th Apr 2021

    I haven't used a golf training aid before. The idea and theory behind DST golf however made great sense to me. I have used the dst compressor twice so far at the driving range and it has been fantastic, helping me to identify the correct impact position very easily. I was very able to feel the correct position and see how that correlated to ball flight. Truly a major tool for me, someone who likes to hit a lot of balls.

    Have only had it a short while but in that time even though I have an injury my ball striking seemed to be better so looking forward to being injury free.
