  3. Hi everyone! Great discussions about our product, and we are here to help. First some boring stuff. We would like to send a warning about ordering our product off any other site or outlet than our own official website. We do not have any resellers, but have had a couple devices stolen, and we see these appearing on eBay. These devices will not work, as we have remotely turned of the access to the software for these devices (for those few individuals that have been unlucky to make a purchase so far, we are in dialogue and will ensure they will not be without a functioning device). By ordering from our website you will have the full manufacturers warranty, product support, customer service and all the goodies that come with being part of the deWiz community such as exclusive webinars and insights - which does not apply if purchasing from a non-authorized reseller. Also, as a thanks for you guys being a true community of early adopters we would like to celebrate with offering a $100 discount. Please visit this link and the discount will automatically be added in the checkout when making a purchase: https://dewizgolf.com/discount/MGS100 Now to the fun stuff We believe there are a couple of things that is really revolutionary with our product. First of all the accurate and instant real-time data of your swing. This is important because of many things, one of the main being that it enables the Learning Stimuli(TM) to give instant feedback as the unwanted motoric movement is happening. This is based in neurophysiology and the science of modification of motor behavior (we have worked with leading neuroscientists on this) - by receiving the stimuli instantly as the unwanted motor behavior is happening you will teach your brain and muscles a lot faster. To see your faulty movement on video will not give the same effect as instantly getting feedback on your wrist when the movement is happening. (here is the onboarding video with Alex Bennett just giving a short intro to this. This is a genuine first impression of deWiz as Alex had not before tried the product or met with us. In this video he is using the learning stimuli to try to learn how to achieve a 39" backswing) We always recommend that you take some time to really learn your numbers when starting. The data you find today is your tempo, start to impact and pause, transition, length of backswing, max hand speed, distance to impact, max backswing width and backswing plane. Start swinging and se what your numbers are. Once you know your numbers, you can start changing things. For me personally, my main issues has always been slicing and tempo. So I have been working a lot on transition and tempo with deWiz. It was obvious where my slice problem came from, my over-the-top swing. Seeing my actual numbers, setting the numbers I wanted to achieve and being able to get a slight buzz on my wrist every time if was in the unwanted zone really helped me correct that part of my swing. If I am not wearing the device I still get a pavlovian "ghost" buzz on my wrist when I come in over-the-top. My tempo was 2:1 when first using deWiz, which probably explains why I could be all over the place with my shots at times. I am at a steady 2.4:1 now and my shots are a lot more consistent than before. I don't know if I will ever reach 3:1, and it doesn't matter as that might not even be my ideal tempo. I am starting to think 2.4:1 is my ideal tempo, and I feel a lot more confident now being able to experiment and see actual data. By the way, Annika has around a 2.5:1 tempo. As the product is new, we launched it this summer, we are constantly working on improvement, new features and insights based on the data being collected. We have videos on our youtube channel explaining what the current features are and how you can improve your swing by knowing your numbers. We also recommend following our instagram or youtube channel as we are going to post more content and tutorials on how to get the most out of your deWiz and insights we find from all the millions of swings registered. There is no cookie cutter perfect swing. You have your swing and the elements of that swing you want to improve, that's why it's so important that you learn YOUR numbers. With this short introduction we just wanted to say hi to everyone and let you know that we are here and happy to help if you have any questions.
  4. Just to put in context I've been a Skycaddie user for over 12 years so been pretty happy with them. I've used 2.5 SGx Breeze Touch SX500 I've had the SX500 just over 2 years and noticed that the screen was delaminating. Anyone else seen this, I remember both Samsung and Apple had similar issues with LED backlit screens about 5 years ago?
  5. Other option is you can take the shafts into a shop and ask them to swap over adaptors if you really wanted to as well.
  6. Maybe a better way of looking at it along the lines of what Kenny said is why not go in try some clubs along with yours on the LM system and see the difference that could be gained with some new equipment independent of your swing variations as you would be comparing your current set and newer clubs on the same day... whether that is a good or bad swing day? Also I wouldn't go and do a full bag in one day. Break it up and do woods one day and irons another day. It is so easy to fatigue and hit too many shots and then results really go out the window. So if it was me, go in and get fit. Take your clubs and see if you can find the gains you want comparing side by side. As we are all amateurs (at least most all of us) we will always be working on swings, adjusting and seeing what swing we are bringing to the course on any given day.
  7. Thanks for the very kind words, @sirchunksalot
  8. Thanks for the feedback. Useful stuff going forwards The idea of 3 steps in the cavity was to add a little material for off-centre hits to help improve forgiveness. I don't have a similar head without them but, in testing, there does seem to be very little drop-off in distance.
  9. Well, here's the first dip into the pool. Reshafting a wedge to match the rest of my irons. Trimmed, dry fit, spine marked, and swing weighted with lead tape so I know what tip weight I need to beg from Roger Dunn tomorrow. Ready for epoxy after I get the tip weight. It's even the proper length. Also the spine finding was wildly easy with the McGolf bearing tool. I didn't expect it to be that apparent so quickly.
  10. OK, I'll bite. You're dumb and cheap! Seriously though, I'm pretty sure you play your driver and 3W very well, or you wouldn't still have 23-year old clubs. But a lot of tech has come and gone in 23 years. Have you tried any new clubs recently? Compared them to your 975's? If not, you might be surprised. Have you taken any lessons since you have been back playing or had a swing evaluation from a pro? If you have been playing most of this year and playing 36 holes a day, your swing probably isn't going to change much until you either get lessons or put a lot of time in getting your swing to be more efficient. It could be that properly fit clubs would help make it easier. An FYI... most everyone here has had "bad swing days" and it's very common to have "a tale of two nines" type of day; myself included!! You can read about many of them in the How'd you play? thread. What I'm getting at is that if we all waited to get fit until we are hitting the ball better, many of us would never get fit. Life is too short to think "Well maybe next year." I'm 74 and and got a new knee at age 67... should have done it sooner. It only took a few months to play better than i did before surgery, because I wasn't playing well for several years with the sore knee. I've been taking lessons and trying to improve my game through better technique and gain some of the distance I lost. It's an uphill battle, but that's why I love golf; there is always something to improve. I say... get fit! If you make significant improvements in the future, then you have earned another fitting, and we can read all about it in the What have you bought lately thread?
  11. Got the turf installed today. So this will be my hitting bay. Ummm... Mixed results with the club head data today, need to spend some more time with it, more to follow.
  12. The weather has been fairly awful the past few days with rain but I took the Spornia net outside for some testing. Mostly hit a few irons just to work on swing things and get some video to send for my first lesson. After that just worked on hitting some consistent distances with my 50 degree wedge. Consistently hitting everywhere from 40 to 80 yards with the wedge by just adjusting the length of my backswing was working pretty well. Video definitely supports my claims that I have a quirky golf swing. Will see what my coach gives me to work on. Mostly I just wanted to get outside after being stuck inside the last 3 or 4 days.
  13. New indoor hitting bay opened closer to my house, but uses trackman. These new Titleist balls make it a hard decision between this studio and another 20 minutes farther away that uses GC quad hawk
  14. Maybe I should have asked “When to fit?” Short background, I’m 64 and this is my first year back after 14 years … got a new knee. The first 3 months I had difficulty with being out of energy after just 6 holes. I ended the season playing 36 holes twice a week. So I’ve gotten stronger. I think my handicap went from 25 to 18. I’ve broken 40 several times, but my bad back always cause the wheels to fall off for 4-5 holes … I never have 2 good 9s back to back. I am capable of shooting 39-55 or 55-39 … neither side has an advantage. I win 2-4 skins a week. ……. Geezsh, this is such a long winded setup … get to the point already. Now, here’s my conundrum: I do not think it is smart for me to get clubs fit to a swing that I have not fully re-grooved yet. If I can get back to hitting the center of the face regularly, then I’ll get a full fitting. I don’t want to go in and hit everything badly … I’m fully capable of having bad swing days. I don’t want to get fit & buy a set for a swing that I think will change in a year. I am forever optimistic that I’ll get better. I doubt I’ll ever shoot par again, but I’ll be happy breaking 80. And then I’ll get fit. Is that dumb? Am I not understanding fitting correctly? I know I can tune my clubs … get fit for new shafts, etc. Maybe I’m just cheap.
  15. I bought a set of RadSpeed OL off CarolinaGolfer2, two weeks ago, and finally got to hit them today … on a cold, swampy, rainy, and misty day. Because of the conditions, and the fact that we are heading into winter, there is no way I can get an honest feel for these clubs until I can play them in warm weather. That said, I can certainly let y’all know what I think of the differences in the aesthetics … the mental surprises these clubs present. My old set is Apex Pro 19 … with a nice thin top line. The RadSpeed is completely different and looks sooo chunky … massive. And they feel so heavy to me, which I think is compounded by the length of the short clubs … heavy head plus a longer shaft really adds up. I’ve got to find a scale that measures both club & swing weight. I was prepared to face the length of the wedges, but completely forgot that it would push the ball so far out from its traditional position. I’m certain I can adjust … it just messes with your head seeing the ball so far away, you feel like it’s going to overfly the target. Again, remember rainy, cold winter day, so ball was not flying as far anyway. I laughed when I saw the GW, and I laughed harder when I stood over the 4-Hybrid … it looks like a kids club or a specialty club someone cut down to use as a recovery club, popping the ball out from under tree lines. I hit it off a tee box just to get an idea of trajectory, and it gets the ball up nicely. My Apex Pro hybrid runs quite a bit. It will be really interesting to see how this one lands when the fairways and greens aren’t plugging. I remain optimistic.
  16. Shot ok, buttttt, 33 puts wit 2, yes I said 2!, … 3 putts!! gahhhhhh…. But,one was on the first hole to a tough pin, after a decent storm yesterday, and the other was like a 50 footer, and I lipped out, but 2! Omg. It was like hearing Adele fart for the first time…
  17. If you need some help in testing, I am open to give it a rip.
  18. Happy Birthday!! Sorry for being a little late... hope you all had a wonderful day.
  19. We had a tee time late in the morning, but noticed some more rain moving in shortly afterwards. I checked and there were some cancelations and we got out at 9:20. A little breezy and we didn't get wet until hole #16. Second round in a row for the Mizunos and I'm starting to love them. They send the ball right where I want... most of the time! Still working on getting the correct distance, and the wind didn't help! My driver was working much better today than on Sunday. Shot 42 (+5) on the front nine with a stoopid double on the par 3 #8 hole. My 4i sent the ball off the back of the green; combination of poor chip and poor green reading and... "put me down for a 5." I had a couple of bogeys starting the back nine, but my shot of the day was driving the green on the par 4 #14 hole. A little tailwind helped, clearing the bunker and rolling to 7 feet... drained it! Parred the rest of the holes, including a 18-footer that barely fell in on #18 in the rain. Shot 35 (Even) for a round of 77.
  20. Thank you. Outside of a few years as a student or on staff, I’ve been in the Contracting career field my entire career.
  21. Nice work on the lag putting. Troon North is a course I didn't play while living there. I will double what TCUFrog said about the lag putting. I was able to get out on a leaf filled and extremely wet practice green this afternoon. No specific testing since the green was soaked and covered but I did hit a few 20' puts just to be able hot something longer than 8' in my living room. The insert felt good and even a couple heel shots the ball rolled pretty good considering the conditions.
  22. Congratulations and well done. 06 is indeed quite an achievement. What, if you don't mind sharing, has your AF career field been principally?
  23. Titleist TSi3 20 Degree Hybrid w/ Ventus Black 9TX Shaft - $400 shipped Standard Length
  24. I went ahead and bought a 7g weight for the Max. That will give me a 27, 17, 7. I’m still playing around with the shafts and weights. Trying to reduce the spin.
