Training tools, anyone care or don't care about them?

At first, I thought nothing about these products when they first came out. But there are two items that look interesting.

The Alignment Trainer and the Feel Trainer (5lbs ball), maybe the release trainer too.

When I played golf a lot (4x a week for 4 years at one point), from 1990 till 2009, one drill that helped me break 82 was taking a full swing hitting a ball between two tees which were 1" to 1/2" from the heal and toe of of the club face. The Alignment trainer is similar. 

The Feel trainer is one I can use for bowling and non bowling purpose.

The Alignment trainer I can pretty much make my version of it.....

But is anyone taking a second look or have tried any of these products?

I would love to see a picture of your project when completed, if you could. I need more revs and the only way to do it is through practice/training.

The build is somewhat done, the wood I used needs some sanding down and paint or varnishing. Also, I'll be adding a handle to it for easy carry, it's a bit heavy. And unlike the original "rev trainer" I have a 12 rollers instead of 11. I placed one roller on each end.

Unfortunately, I'm not computer savvy and I can't post pics. I do have a pic and short video I sent to my buddies last night.. PM if you want me to text them to you.

It took me less than 20 mins to make. I rushed through it with my 3 yr old helping me lol
