Explanar Golf Swing Trainer

Don't let swing thoughts spoil your golf game! Build a more consistent and power golf swing... in just five minutes a day!

What is Explanar?

The Explanar is used by amateur and professional golfers around the world. Develop a powerful, repeatable swing, improve strength, flexibility and fitness in your own home.

History of Explanar

Master PGA Professional Luther Blacklock created the Explanar Swing Trainer after realising that, despite his 30 years of working with golfers of all levels, one key ingredient was missing from his coaching skills – the ability to teach feel.

Luther realised that his pupils not only need to understand how to swing the golf club to hit the shot, they also need to ‘feel’ what it is like to swing on their optimum biomechanical swing plane.

How it Works

The Explanar Golf Swing Trainer teaches and trains your muscles to perform the perfect golf swing.

It allows you to stop thinking about your swing and enables you to feel it instead.

Using The Explanar at home for just 10 minutes a day helps you create muscle memory that is automatically recalled by your subconscious when you play.

It’s the equivalent of hitting 150 balls at a driving range. That’s more than 1,000 practice swings a week – all on a perfect plane!

A Swing Trainer For Everybody

With an adjustable hoop and plane sensor, The Explanar can be set to your individual height and physique, and works with every golf club in the bag.

The patented Power Roller guides your muscles along your optimum swing plane, grooving the sensation of the perfect movement.

Using the Explanar Swing Trainer for just 10 minutes a day will rapidly improve your shoulder coil, forearm control and wrist hinge – the three key components to creating a solid, consistent and optimum golf swing.

The repeated movement also strengthens your arms and back muscles while also increasing balance and flexibility.

Crammed with features to improve your golf swing… fast!

Learn how to hit it longer and straighter in the comfort of your own home

The Explanar Hoop is easily adjustable to match your individual height and physique, as well as every golf club in the bag.

The Explanar’s adjustable hoop allows you to set it to your optimum swing plane as well as to different golf clubs.

This means that you can practise with every club – from a wedge to a driver – knowing that you’ll be swinging on your perfect bio-mechanical plane every time.

Guaranteed to get you onto your perfect swing plane!

The patented Plane Fin is what differentiates The Explanar from other simple golf swing hoops.

Situated at the top of the hoop, it highlights whether or not you are swinging at the angle of your optimum plane. This feature is patented for a reason. Swing hoops without it cannot guarantee perfect plane, or the perfect golf swing.

Develop and groove a fluid swing motion while building your strength, fitness and muscle memory at the same time.

Specially designed to be heavier than a normal golf club, the added weight of The Power Roller enhances muscle memory and strengthens your key golfing muscles.

Not only does this result in a more dynamic and consistent golf swing, but also increases power and accuracy.

There’s a long roller for driver to 5-iron and a short roller to simulate 6-iron through wedges.

Step into the perfect alignment and ball position every time with the Explanar Radial Stance Mat.

The curved markings on the mat allow you to adjust your stance and distance from the hoop to match different length golf clubs as well as to hit different shots.

You can also use the markings to learn how to shape your shots – to hit high shots, low shots, fades and draws.

"If you're serious about improving your game, you need an Explanar."

Martin Hall

"The Explanar is a terrific learning tool for golf."

Pete Cowen

Europe's No.1 teacher and coach to Gary Woodland and Brooks Koepka

"I've bought numerous swing aid/tools over the years. Most of them provided little to no help. However, the Explanar is the best swing tool/training device I've ever seen. It literally trains the entire swing. Take back, wrist hinge, tempo, turn, lag, wrist turnover, and follow through. I used it for 10 minutes the day I put it together and played golf the next day. My buddy asked if I had been taking lessons. I hit the ball farther and more consistently than I have in 8 years. It's like having my very own swing coach in my garage! I would recommend to any golfer of any skill level!!! Totally worth the money and I will keep the Explanar for as long as I play golf!

PS: My buddies all want my garage code so they can come use it before their rounds. HAHA"


"I really should have purchased this years ago. I've had my Explanar for several months, and it has really helped. My pro recommended it, he has been giving me lessons with his, and now I can continue to practice at home."

Richard S.

"I'm very happy with my Explanar. I've been working on staying on plane and not coming over the top. The Explanar has helped me get in the proper positions, and my handicap is starting to come down. I'm looking forward to a great season."

Frequently Asked Questions

How is The Explanar packaged?

The Explanar is a substantial piece of equipment that is disassembled and securely packed for safe delivery. It requires two people to assemble it.

How much space do I need for The Explanar?

When used in an indoor setting, The Explanar occupies the following space:
Height (8 feet/2.44m); Width (13 feet/4m); Depth (5ft/1.5m).

When stored in its packaging, The Explanar occupies the following space:
Height (7 feet/2.4m); Width (5ft/1.5m); Depth (16 inches/0.6m)

How do you store The Explanar?

The Explanar comes with wheels for easy manoeuvrability. However, we recommend that this is always done by two people.

Always detach the steel Plane Fin and calibrator strut before folding and take care not to lose the bungee cord that holds the Plane Fin in place when in storage. If the Explanar is wet, wipe it with a cloth to hand dry prior to storage.

Can you store The Explanar outside?

While The Explanar can be used both indoors and outdoors, its steel construction means it is not fully weatherproof. Therefore, it is not suitable for outside storage, especially in coastal areas. Leaving it outside for an extended period of time will accelerate the ageing process.

What are the key components of The Explanar?

The Explanar is made up of five key components – the adjustable Hoop, the Power Roller, the Plane Fin, the Radial Stance Mat, and the Plane Sensor. The combination of these five elements will develop your golf swing. With only 10 minutes practice on the Explanar each day, you will see a dramatic improvement in your swing, flexibility and fitness.

What does the Hoop do?

The adjustable hoop allows you to position the golf training aid to the angle of your optimum swing plane. Since each golfer’s optimum swing plane is unique, adjustable hoop caters for these physical differences as well as for different length clubs.

What does the Power Roller do?

The Power Roller is heavier than a normal golf club. The additional weight accelerates the muscle memory associated with swinging on your optimum plane. It also enhances fitness and flexibility by strengthening your arm and back muscles as well as increasing your core stability to help you develop a more dynamic and athletic golf swing.

What does the Plane Fin do?

The Plane Fin is unique to The Explanar and is a key differentiator from other swing hoops. Situated on the top of the Explanar Hoop, it acts as an indicator as to whether you are swinging on your optimum biomechanical swing plane.

What does the Radial Stance Mat do?

The curved markings on the mat allow you to adjust your stance and distance from the adjustable hoop. By adjusting your address position within The Explanar you will be able to vary your swing movement to hit shots of different shape and trajectory.

What does the Plane Sensor do?

The Plane Sensor allows you to set the adjustable hoop to the correct angle of your optimum golf swing plane based on your height and club length. When the hoop is set at the correct angle, the Plane Sensor should intersect with your sternum.

Who is The Explanar suitable for?

The Explanar is suitable for right- and left-handed golfers of all ages and abilities, from beginners to successful Tour Professionals.

Will The Explanar improve my golf swing?

Yes. The Explanar teaches the whole golf swing as well as its individual components.

Many golf training aids focus on individual parts of the golf swing. The Explanar thoroughly simulates the complete swing movement – from full swing drives to the short game.

Will The Explanar fix my swing faults?

Yes. The Explanar can fix all golf swing faults. The swing movement of the Power Roller will immediately diagnose any flaws. By swinging the Power Roller correctly around the hoop, the body is obliged to adhere to a more orthodox or effective swing.

By setting the Explanar at your optimum swing plane, you are encouraged to swing in your unique, most effective, accurate and powerful swing plane.

Will The Explanar help me hit it further?

Yes. With regular use, The Explanar will increase the length of your drives. Almost all pupils will gain extra distance.

Will The Explanar fix poor basics and fundamentals?

Your grip, posture and alignment will automatically improve, since swing and address flaws feel uncomfortable within the optimum swing movement.

For example, an incorrect grip will not function economically and you will often intuitively improve your grip.

Will The Explanar fix my slice?

Yes. The Explanar fixes a slice quickly. By using the Radial Stance Mat and the Plane Fin, you will eradicate a slice by swinging the Power Roller onto the fin at the end of the follow through.

Your swing path and club face control will improve immediately and a neutral draw shot will start to replace your slice.

Will The Explanar fix my hook?

Yes. The Explanar fixes a hook quickly. A hook is less common than a slice but is often more destructive!

By using the Radial Stance Mat to alter your swing path, and by ensuring that the Power Roller is held off across the Plane Fin in the follow-through, the hook will transform into a neutral draw or controlled fade shot.

Will The Explanar stop me topping the ball?

Yes. The Explanar will stop you topping the ball and help deliver a high, soft landing flight instead.

Most golfers mistakenly think that a topped shot is caused by lifting their head, however it is mainly due to poor wrist action during the swing.

By using the short Power Roller with an upright setting of the hoop, the wrists will regain their movement and the ball will fly higher, straighter and further.

Will The Explanar help me hit different shape shots?

Yes. The founding ethos of The Explanar is to teach golfers how to hit shots properly first, safe in the knowledge that a sound golf swing will follow!

The Explanar will teach you to control the trajectory of the ball as well as to intentionally shape your shots with fade and draw spin.

The more advanced golfer will also be able to use The Explanar to hit high and low shots with fade and draw spin.

Does The Explanar work with a specific coaching method?

No. The Explanar is teacher neutral. Its inventor, Luther Blacklock, designed the The Explanar to suit all physiques, abilities and methods.

Regardless of whether you follow the principles of Stack’n’Tilt, One Plane/Two Plane, Golfing Machine, Instinctive Golf, or Rotary Golf, The Explanar can be adjusted to create whatever movement or discipline you prefer.

When/Where can The Explanar be used?

The Explanar can be used alone or with a PGA professional, indoors or outdoors, at home or at a golf centre.

You can therefore practice your golf swing in any weather. With only 10 minutes of practice needed a day to groove the feeling of a perfect golf swing, you could even be improving your swing after work.

Do I need specific training to use The Explanar?

The Explanar comes with an instructional DVD that will enable you to get started as soon as it is delivered. The Explanar is very easy to use on your own or with a friend or PGA professional.

Is The Explanar suitable for all golfers?

The Explanar can be used by all golfers, including amateurs, professionals, men, and women between 5ft (1.5m) and 6ft 7" (2m) in height. Its adaptability makes The Explanar a truly fantastic golf training system for all the family. We have also designed The Junior Explanar – a scaled down version of The Explanar. It is suitable for golfers aged 6 to 11, or for anybody under 5ft (1.5m) height.
