  1. Part two : ball data Yep, it gives it. What do any of you want to see here? I think we are all probably familiar with foresight software, so I don't want to rehash that. I haven't found a way yet to change which of the data points it shows on just the lcd screen. Having it hooked up to my computer I don't look at the screen that often. But I did hit a few shots before getting it hooked up and just looking at the lcd. Spin Axis was a hard data point for me to put into useful terms. I got that left axis meant the ball would move left, but how far left? Maybe more time with a PLM and I'll know how much curve axis equates to, but for just our of the box.... Eh. It's crazy fast, data is displayed before I even look back down to it, so compared to skytrak, well, about 3 seconds faster. The unit isnt small, but it is definitely compact and very movable. Its hitting area is pretty decent sized and it is easy enough to get a ball into position, I didn't have any issues there. It would be nice if I could show you the gaping feature and how it highlighted the gaps in my bag that should be addressed. But I haven't tried that yet. Seriously, this thing came with Pebble Beach, you think I was going to spend the first hour on the range working on my distances?! I can say that Pebble on a Sim is still fun. And that the GC3 hasn't missed any of my shots yet. Also, it hasn't shown me a ball flight that I have been suspect of. Plenty of ball flights I didn't like, but you know, golf. Next up is club head data. And whatever anyone here asks to see Any feature or option anyone wants me to try?

  4. Thinking about snow shoes and orange balls.... Saw this report yesterday and two rain storms for this week are being called "nor'easters" which is something every New England golfer fears as it's generally brought up as a winter storm pattern. Thankfully I'm pretty sure that snow was just due to the winds and elevation along the Kancamagus, but still... Also a wellness check on @ejgaudette you staying warm up there buddy?

  5. Finally was able to play the Rawls Course at Texas Tech. Lets just say its a great course and by far the WINDY AF course I have ever played. That back 9 the wind was steady at 20mph, making those 14-18 very long. Greens were very undulating and if you was on the wrong side of the slope, good luck making it in 2 putts. But you can make birdies, if you are in the correct side, greens are faster than they appear, struggle with them in the front 9 but figured them out by the back 9

  6. We finally got some rain this weekend!! Rained hard Saturday night and was still raining 2 hours before our tee time. I looked at my wife and said: "Do you really want to play in this?" It's a desert; it doesn't rain for long!! She said: "It's not raining THAT hard"... so we went!?! Got to the course, put the cover on the cart, headed to the range, although no one was there, and we could have just headed to the tee. Rain stopped. Sun came out a little, and I took off 2 of my 4 layers of clothes at the turn. I have been hitting my Mizuno MP20 HMB irons pretty well at home, so thought I would take them out for a spin on the course. It's really tough when you don't really know how far each iron goes, but based on the lofts I used two more clubs than my usual Bridgestones. Not a bad guess. I birdied hole #1; first time all year!! Managed a 39 (+2) on the front nine and 41 (+6) on the back nine, which I started bogey, double on #10-11. I was happy with an 80 though. Every shot I hit with the HMBs was solid, except for one on #18. I was hitting a 6i to a layup position and I just didn't commit to the swing; slight block to the right, but I was still in the fairway. I loved the ball flight!! I think I will stick with them for awhile. My issue all day was my long game. Driver was just OK, shorter than usual; and my woods were very inconsistent and also shorter than usual. I think my sore right shoulder is affecting those shot more than the short clubs. May need to take a break for awhile.

  7. For all those RB needy teams and some who just need to change things up or looking at adding a RB I want to pair Lockett with either Sanders or Monty in a 2 for 1 for a different WR. I know I said I woulddn't do recaps, but I found some interesting stats on the site Offensive Point leader (QB/RB/WR/TE/FLX) is @djmicro with 951.95 points Kicker Leader is @Crossroads Golf with 75 points 9.5 clear of anyone.... @STUDque I really expected you to be leading this category. Defence Leaders are @Nolan220 and @TBT both with 143 points ytd. Total point leader is @Mtbryant01 with 2187.3 points so far. Total Points Against Leader is @jddaigneault who has had a run of really tough luck with injuries and more.

  8. Sounds like your stock shot is just fine and what you really need to do is work on technique for a knockdown shot. No need to change anything for the full swing

  11. Today I drove a little over an hour one way for my first lesson with a new coach. An hour lesson and paid $250 for the lesson. Two hours of driving, three hours total time away from home. Worth every penny! If I can hit the ball tomorrow like I did today it will be worth even more. My coach texted me a video after the lesson that he took while we were working together demonstrating a drill he wants me to do. When I asked him when we should get together again he told me it was completely up to me. When I had mastered what we had discussed come back if I want help with something else. I’m excited to get to the range tomorrow!

  13. I feel vindicated. A week or two back, i was struggling to pull some graphite shafts, thought it was me, even though i have a lot of experience doing so. Sent my Mitchell shaft puller (which should be indestructible) back to Mitchell to take a look just in case, and there was in fact an issue with the puller and they repaired it and its on its way back.

  14. I'm playing tomorrow as well. I went on a family vacation last week and only decided not to bring my clubs (regretted it as soon as I left) so I've not played in a few weeks. I hit the skytrak today and was hitting it solid. Also, the skytrak had an update so it's reading much better now and I'm seeing similar results to the range/course which is a good thing going into the winter.

  16. I think @RickyBobby_PR and @jlukes already have it covered, but I will second that the numbers you posted for 7 iron are really solid. Learning the knockdown certainly seems the way to go. You could also experiment with some different golf balls to see how they perform in windy conditions compared to your current gamer. Might help, might not, but the biggest difference will come from learning to control the trajectory via swing and club selection.

  17. I’ll just pile on if you are tweaking because wind or other non optimal condition then it probably isn’t a stock shot. You need to change something to get your desired results. This could be accomplished in many ways: choking down, taking more club with less than full swing, or moving the ball back and delofting. golf is not always plays in optimal conditions and you need to learn how to adapt from shot to shot.

  18. Nothing new from me - winter is settling in up here, so my season is on its last legs, but I'm continually impressed with the jumper "protection" from the T100's. I am going to see if I can get my hands on some Modus 130x shafts that I was fit into so hopefully next spring I'll have even more perspective on how these puppies work

  24. I think it's a cool drill and whoever came up with it is a genius. One of the biggest things that scared me about the 2 Ball alignment was how I'd react to it since it's totally different from anything I've ever used. I was scared that I would just be a disaster with it, but those fears have been squashed. This was a good verification for me to see that it rolled 31 inches down the ruler.

  25. Had a 'birthday' round on a new course yesterday with my F-in-L. Not a great course with lots of blind tee shots but the greens were in great condition as they'd had their winter treatment early. Rolling really nicely which is a nice change to my home course who've just done the treatment. Shot a nice 88 and play around the greens was good with a 1.7 putt average, no 3-putts so safe to say the new revisions to the putter are working. Driver working well too Highlight was driving a 310y blind, uphill par 4. Was only a foot on but on is on Lipped out from 20ft for an Also had a practice on the GC2 on Saturday and was getting up to 160mph ball speed with driver

  28. I played 36 over the weekend but before the round, I spent an hour on the putting green with the following putters: Sub 70 002 Mid Mallet TaylorMade Spider SR Ping PLD Tyne Ping Sigma Arna My struggles on the course are a quick stroke that can lead to pull/push, especially on 8' and in. My stroke can get a little to the outside on the takeaway and the transition to follow-through can get a little loopy, thus resulting in an inconsistent line. The Sub 70 won out on the putting green and in the bag it went. After 36 holes, I saw my first back-to-back rounds that showed strokes gained on putting via Arccos. It wasn't just a little on the positive side for strokes gained putting, it was +2.8 and +2.0 for the two rounds. I saw a lot of 3'-7' putts drop that might've missed with a lighter putter and quicker stroke. I'm really shocked to see those results. If you need a heavier putter to smooth out your stroke, this is a great, budget-friendly option.

  29. For the basics: 1) a vice you need to hold the project in a stable fashion 2) a bench to mount the vice too, this will also act as future landing spots for other machines as you grow 3) a shaft clamp, This can a simple as a rubber clamp to fit into the vice or a speed clamp that again can go on the vice but is far easier to use 4) a butane torch. 5) a catch pan to contain solvent if you plan to regrip will chemical if not then a pancake compressor, hose, and tool. 6) a back knife to scrap tape, move ferrules. etc. 7) masking tape 1" wide, good epoxy More involved: a ruler to measure club length, this can be done better using a bench mounted unit however a ruler for club length is a must a machine to measure flex, Strain gauge, frequency machine whatever fits your mind set to measure the club. loft and lie machine if you plan to make adjustments or ensure a quality build. belt sander for finishing ferrules, tip prepping, removing burrs. a place to allow the clubs to dry.

  30. Part 1: the getting Hello all, it's time for another unofficial review. A standard brown cardboard box. This one came complete with 6 sides and some packing tape. As far as brown boxes go, I'd say it is as good as most. It retained it shape while traveling from the far reaches of California to Washington. This box also did its best Russian nesting doll impression. Inside the first cardboard box was some foam, and another cardboard box! This second cardboard box was not nearly as sturdy, much thinner ply and shinny black. It turns out that it wasn't even a box! It only has 4 sides. Since it is missing 2 sides I only give it a 3.5 on my cardboard box rating scale. Things got back on track with a good solid, fully 6 sided box inside that flimsy fake box. Good texture, solid feel. I'd give it a slightly higher rating if it was scented, but it wasn't so... Let's give it a 8. Hidden inside this non-scented box, was what I guess I'll spend the next post discussing.

  33. I had wondered if it was a puller issue because I have never had any problem especially with graphite. Now my puller has pulled many a shaft and the die is getting worn around the 355 and 370 slots. I have already flipped it a couple of years ago. I will get over to my buds shop and use his wire welder and weld and grind it back with a Dremel tool or he is a machinist too and may just have him cut me a couple of dies with his laser cutter. The screw is not worn either because I keep it lubed up with WD 40 when using

  34. You sir are correct, no wires. it connects to everything via wifi. And it's battery is good for a listed 5-7 hours. I've connected it to my pc and phone, looks like it should /will connect to an ipad/iPhone the same. Very quick and easy. It does have a standard ethernet port and a USB-C port. I did get an email from foresight that says the USB-C is not too be trusted at this time and should work in a future update.

  36. I’ve done the Tour van fitting with them 6 years ago. They have whatever shafts are in the manufacturers matrix. That will include the no upcharge shafts along with the upcharge ones, but if it’s a shaft like say they ventus red and a titleist driver then they won’t have it because only ventus blue and black are in the titleist matrix.

  37. Played a couple rounds with these and have hit balls on the range. What I have noticed is not much, in a good way. I haven't noticed any significant stinging from vibrations, i don't have any elbow or joint pains, etc. You will still occasionally feel a sting if you hit one really poorly, but i think that is unavoidable. So far so good with this product.

  38. Agreed. I had a reasonable short game before I came across Monte and Rebellion Golf. For some reason I always played the ball a little forward of center for most shots. The bump and run was not a shot that I commonly played, so I rarely had the ball behind center. Monte's Use the Bounce 2.0 video showed me how and why to play this shot. I became a better chipper when I rotated more and as Monte emphasizes, get your humerus (upper arm) over your lead foot after contact. Made a world of difference! In his video he tosses golf balls underhanded to spots on the green. That motion is the same as basic chip motion shown here. If you don't get your humerus forward, it's easy to chunk and blade the shot.

  39. I know this is self inflicted swing angst from trying to get a better wrist set in my swing. Doing videos for the Sub70 849 Pro driver review I noticed I was less than optimal with that part of my swing. Made an adjustment that has translated to the irons pretty well but is very inconsistent with the driver swing. I am out of sequence and really stuck with an over the top move to varying degrees. It's crazy how it's only the driver swing. Fairway woods, hybrids and irons are all fine....not that I'm complaining about that! Edit to add.....I think its time to switch up putters for a round or two. I have lost my feel with the Heppler Fetch and though I know its my fault not the putters, it may help to look at something different. So I am going back to a vintage Ping Anser which is what I use to practice with at home.

  40. Picked up a club for the first time in almost two weeks yesterday and chipped two shag tubes around the yard really quickly. Weird, but refreshing feeling to not touch a club for a while as I've been focusing on a few other things as of late. Also got my EXPUTT set up in our spare bedroom and have rolled about 75 putts on it over the last two days. My speed control is so much better than it was a year ago. Didn't have more than five land outside of a 3 foot circle around the hole. Face/path still need some more work though. At least initially it appears I've been setting up really open this past season and swinging the putter way out to the right. Worked on feeling more square in my setup and that got my face angle and path both on more reasonable numbers. My garage space isn't ready to use yet, and I'm starting to get the itch to hit some golf balls. Might have to make my way up to the heated range next weekend to scratch that itch.

  42. Guys, got home today and I was correct, the net is here! Solid packaging and super easy to open/setup. Tear down was a little tougher but seems like this is made more for a semi permanent setup. First impression this seems really durable especially where the ball is hit. FullSizeRender.mov Of course I will give much more info/pictures in the review but wanted to give a sneak preview! Hoping to try indoor testing as well!

  43. ... Every day is an adventure ain't it? I wish they were all good adventures but not even true for Tiger. Might have been my best day ever with a putter yesterday as I missed one putt inside 20 feet. Irons were about as good as I can hit them. But my driver was a Jekyll and Hyde all day. Knowing the fairways have just been over seeded so practically zero roll and I think subconsciously (OK, maybe a little consciously ) I was trying to get a little extra out of my driver and hit 2 really nice drives, several serviceable drives but waaaaaay too many poor drives. Nothing worse then needing a few extra yards and hitting it in the heel and losing about 20 yds or the 2 I hit high on the face with 1/2 a ball dimple showing for a drive traveling higher than it's distance from the tee. Hitting a hybrid or 5 wood when it is normally a mid iron is just brutal. ... So thanks mostly to my putter I had 3 birdies and 2 bogies. This game is just so difficult to do everything really well and it always seems like at least one element of the game is a struggle. Ya drive the ball great, hit your irons reasonably well and just can't make a putt. Your putter is on fire but your wedges and irons are on vacation.

  47. Definitely received the full size, and it is a solid size for semi-permanent setup. I have my initial thoughts on the portability of the net. As you can see, it is pretty compact when folded up, and very nice when setup. I know I mentioned some indoor testing and I will do that, but as you can tell full swings just won't be possible in this garage. It will work well for feel purposes for wedges.

  48. Good sign that it’s a bad fit. Having to go after it there will be days that really work and days where it’s going to play havoc. I love the feel and stability of the ventus but I had similar issues with the one I one because it was x flex and just didn’t jive with it when my swing was off

  49. The heads do not to be ground. They are fully finished, just need to add a shaft, ferrule and grip of your choice and you are ready to go. The weight of the heads are right at about 300 grams. The lofts and lies have been consistent. Since experimenting with this first set I have now built probably ten sets of these. Some given to friends, some donated for golf tournament prizes and some sold to golfers in our Mens Golf Association. The heads are soft enough to bend easily if you want to change the loft or lie. Some of Corey Paul’s heads have additional hand grind applied to remove material on the leading edge and or provide additional toe and heel relief. There are some with additional face milling to provide additional spin, but I have found that not to be necessary as I’m getting lots of spin with premium urethane golf balls.

  50. No, it's still up in the middle of the shaft but the insert itself is very short. It won't really fit in the tip section since it's a drinking straw wrapped in open cell foam. Here is a picture of the full insert that used to be Sensicore. Now it's the same insert but only about 4-5" long instead of 8-10" long.
