I got this a couple of months ago to take my Wii Tiger Woods 11 ever closer to the real golf experience. And it does ! Its great fun - though you need much more space in your living room to avoid lights, chairs, etc. Go to the Bad Chicken website and you can find several videos about how to use it. I get very similar scores playing with or without the Chicken Stick but thats expected, its another fun Wii accessory not a magic golf wand ! Hooking your finger into the trigger does take a little getting used to, so I put some cord around my LH ring finger & through the trigger and can achieve the classic comfortable 2 handed interlocked golf grip.
The bottom line is - if you want to get closer to playing real golf with the best golf sim, turn the TW11 settings onto hard & get one of these !

1.0 out of 5 stars Broke in a few weeks 6 Nov. 2010
By S. Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I got this for my husband as we play Tiger Woods 2011 Wii golf almost every evening. He is a real golfer and has been his whole life. He loved this until it broke last night. He only had it a few weeks. There is an attachment where you put your pointer finger to pull back on it rather than using the B button as it is at the bottom of the stick and the top of the stick is like a real golf club. It is made of plastic and broke at the circle part where the finger pulls on it. Now we have to let Amazon know what happened, and for what it cost, I sure hope we can get a refund or another one to replace it. Hopefully, they will start making that part out of a thicker plastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST for wii tiger woods pga tour 11 & the wii-mote 4 Mar. 2011
By ginoe - Published on Amazon.com

wii tiger woods pga tour 11 & the chicken stick:

i am a recreational golfer and the chicken stick is the closest thing you can get to simulate real golf, IMO. the device is a MUST for this game if you wish to play with more realism. i still continue to slice as i do regularly on a real course. my only regret is not getting the chicken stick sooner.

i too found the 'b' ring to be out of reach but nothing a rubber band couldn't fix. my index finger can tug on the rubber band to activate the 'b' ring & still be placed in the proper grip position. for practice swings; a second, thicker rubber band around the wii-mote & a rubber foot can apply enough pressure to simultaneously activate the 'a' button. (i also use a rubber band & rubber foot for the 1 & 2 buttons when playing the david leadbetter golf trainer)

see picture of rubber band setup ---> [...]

this is a toy, $40 but still a plastic toy. exercise care when activating the 'b' ring & it will perform and last as it should.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality Product but needs work 20 Jan. 2011
By Customer #1138 - Published on Amazon.com

The build on this product is pretty solid. The design for engaging the B button is awkward and seems weak. As many have stated this piece seems to break shortly after some use. Mine has yet to fail but I can already see it happening. I bought this with the idea of being able to keep my arms moving during the winter months so that come spring I would be ready to go. Unfortunately I don't feel this is able to properly simulate proper technique. The main reason again comes back to the B button lever. If they had a locking mechanism instead of something you have to hold to engage the swing, then you would be able to use your normal golf grip. Because you can't do this you have to compromise your grip which leads to other issues such as the "closed face" issue. You will find that every swing seems to result in a closed face hit on the ball. I don't think I want to compromise my real life swing for a game.

Overall, its a great toy, but if you golf for real I can't recommend this product at this time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Really helps you enjoy the game more 28 Jan. 2012
By Darrel Owen - Published on Amazon.com

I got this about 8 months ago but haven't played with it until now just because I've been really busy. I finally had an afternoon free and decided to bust out my Tiger Woods '12 Wii game and see how the Chicken Stick did with it. I was really frustrated at first because I kept getting a message that the remote had become disconnected right after I swung, and it wasn't registering anything. I had to swing really slowly in order to get anything to happen in the game. I decided to log onto the company site and try to get some support ([...]). I honestly wasn't expecting much, but I went ahead and fired off an e-mail to the support address describing my problem, and this was on a Sunday afternoon. I don't want to set any unrealistic expectations for anyone, but I had a reply literally in 6 MINUTES!!! Not only that, it solved my problem. Turns out that with a hard swing, the batteries in the controller will be moved just enough that they cause the controller to lose power briefly, which causes you to get the error. The solution that was given to me was to insert something into the controller with the batteries to help secure them into place. What I ended up doing was taking part of a paper towel and folding it up a bit so that it covered just the top of the batteries inside the case, then putting the top back on to secure everything. The goal is to put something in there that can kind of form around the batteries (tissue, cloth, foam, etc) and be compressible so that you can put the cover back on. After you've done that, the batteries should be held snugly in place and then you can swing away without worrying too much about having your remote disconnect. It still does happen to me occasionally, so I think I need to work on engineering a slightly better pad, but it's MUCH better than it was before.
What I would say about this device is that it's not perfect, but it's very close. The grip is a real golf grip on a real golf shaft - it just happens to have a plastic holder attached for the controller. You feel like you're swinging a real golf club for the most part, which is a huge improvement over using the Nerf golf club attachment or using no attachment at all. Doing it that way just doesn't feel anything like a golf club. The only drawback on this device is that you have to hold the trigger with your forefinger so that it keeps the B button depressed, and that's a little unnatural. It's not too far off what you probably normally do, mind you, but it's different enough that it might affect your swing some. Given that this is a game and not a real replacement for an actual game of golf, I would think that wouldn't bother people much. I'll tell you that playing a round with the Chicken Stick inside on a rainy day is better than not playing at all. It really does seem to be just this side of playing an actual game. Maybe it's roughly 90% realistic? That's good enough for me. I enjoy the game for real and I enjoy playing it on the Wii when I can't get out to the course.
I did see some mention of the plastic loop thing breaking for some folks - so far mine has held up fine, and I swing fairly hard (100 mph on a regular swing, but I've been clocked at 120 mph when I really try - not Tiger Woods, but not bad for a middle-aged fat guy). The controller is held firmly in the device and I have no concern about it flying out.
All in all, this is a great device to help you enjoy your Wii golf games more, and I would absolutely buy it again.
5.0 out of 5 stars A+ purchase, great customer service, product is a game changer! 20 Jan. 2012
By Scotty G - Published on Amazon.com

After reading the reviews on Amazon, I decided to take the plunge and purchase this relatively expensive Tiger Woods Wii golf enhancer. That is exactly what it is in my opinion, and enhance it DOES!

I was a little apprehensive since some of the reviews mentioned that the circle plastic piece was a weak link of the product. However, others that had broken it, mentioned that the customer service was excellent and they were shipped a new one so I bought with confidence.

Well, after about 2 months of playing, the plastic circle piece did break on mine, right where it loops back to the main piece at the juncture. I was able to use it for another few rounds before my friend broke it completely off. He didn't realize that you just have to gently pull on it to activate the 'B' button before swinging.

So I emailed Bad Chicken and sent a pic of the broken plastic piece on the chicken stick asking what we could do to work the situation out. Jordan responded VERY fast within the hour and asked where I would like the replacement sent! I was blown away! Great to see there are still companies that stand by their product with great customer service.

Now, there are a couple other things I'd like to mention about correctly using this product. Hopefully, with this review, every single person that reads it will find it helpful...but more importantly...use the product correctly. That way, hopefully you won't break it to begin with.

As mentioned, you only need to gently pull on the plastic ring to active the 'B' button when pointing the stick downward before swinging. You should also choke down on the club a little bit so you don't have to pull the piece as far back. As some have said, yes you love some of the leverage that holding the club further towards the end generates, but this can be easily over-comeable. You can still very easily get the club head speed necessary to achieve 100% power chocked way down on the club - with the correct technique.

Correct technique involved a FULL back swing with the end of the chicken stick behind your head pointing back at the TV, and then a full smooth yet quick swing forward.

Lastly, as others have mentioned...a small piece of packing tape on the golf pride grip right where the plastic piece frictionizes with it helps to smoothly pull it back with minimal effort.

Overall, this is a great product and you can buy with confidence. The seller offers excellent customer service. Tiger Woods Wii will never be the same without it. I wouldn't even play the game (that I'm addicted to and play every day!) while I waited for the replacement to arrive.

A+ purchase
