  1. Have you looked into the Nippon Zelos line? I was a tester of those and I love them. Feel and performance of graphite but steel. Just a thought...
  2. As a father of 3, now adult, daughters, I have to agree with @cnosil and @GolfSpy MPR. If you have the opportunity to spend the time with family you should. Kids grow up way too fast to miss out on any opportunities with them. Just my humble opinion.
  3. I don't work at any of those. But that is pretty funny. Everyone thinks the same thing. When I told my mother I was moving to Seattle back in 2012, she asked if I was going to work for Microsoft?
  4. I would rather trade off turf interaction with real, appropriate and unbiased data. I'm a big supporter of keeping things "old school", but I love the idea of some A.I. giving me real analytics.
  5. I can foresee this episode getting more than a few people fired up!!
  6. That explains why I liked my shots better when I lived in Arizona!
  7. Couldn't agree more. When trying to recover from a back injury, the last thing you should do is push yourself that hard.
  8. As someone who has had to deal with back injuries/issues pretty much my entire adult life, first back injury was at age 28, I can say that once that happens it doesn't take much to make that injury re-appear or worsen. So, while the argument that it's self-inflicted could be seen as valid, in my opinion its all down to the nature of the injury. Back injuries are a terrible thing to deal with.
  9. I was confused at first about what you were talking about because I don't ever see any ads with Chrome. Then I realized, after looking from home, that I am always getting on here while I'm on my work laptop and the ads are blocked. I have to agree that the ads are fairly annoying but at least they can be closed.
  10. I had a little more range time over the new years break, way too much rain around here to get out on the course. The more I practice with these shafts and the more comfortable I get with them, the more I like them. I have now noticed that my spin rate has increased, along with the height of my shots which equates to less roll on after landing. My short iron shots are stopping on dimes. I think I'm going to like these!
  11. I have a longer forearm than upper arm. Which it now makes sense why my putter swing looks the way it does. I always thought this was something I needed to work on when comparing my swing with that of the pro's. Now I know that may not be what needs correcting. This is good info.
  12. @Golfspy_CG2 kick COVID's ass! Get better soon.
  13. I absolutely love these 2 posts. Couldn't agree more! If you want to wait until you think you have mastered your swing, you'll be waiting a really long time.
  14. So, I finally made it out to the range over the weekend after a very long and stressful week (we had a COVID scare in the house during Christmas week! Everybody had to quarantine. We're all safe and healthy now.). I hit about 10 balls with each club 3-P. My first impression is that these shafts are really light comparatively. I found myself slowing my swing down a bit. This will take some getting used to. I have to keep in my head that I don't need to swing for the fences every time. They also feel like they have a bit more flex than a standard stiff shaft. Another reason t
  15. My shafts were returned to me. So if I don't like them, yes I can have my old shafts re-installed.
  16. I haven't been in Beaufort, SC since 2005, and I only played the course on MCRD Parris Island. Because it was quiet and it only cost me $25/month to be a member and play as much as I wanted. Kinda wish I could go back and play it again!
  17. My swing speed has always been in the mid- to high-90's. My comparison will be to stock shafts. This is my first set of aftermarket iron shafts. I haven't had much trouble with high spin, the opposite actually. I could use a little extra spin.
  18. I received my clubs in the mail and wanted to put up a few sneak peeks...
  19. The Review 11 January 2021 Nippon N.S. Pro Zelos 8 – Official MGS Forum Review by IDontGiveAchuck Intro Hello everyone. First let me express my appreciation for being given the opportunity to be involved in this test and review. I am a self-taught golfer who was sucked into the hobby during my military days. What started out as a way to hang out with my buddies and have a few beers has evolved into a way to hang out with buddies and drink a few beers. I take the game seriously but not to the point of high blood pressure; I get enough of that trying to figure out my swing
  20. Welcome aboard Cashuss, from the North end of Seattle!
  21. Moving to Phoenix?! Lucky you, I'm jealous. Great golf in AZ! I'm a Seattle guy now but home will always be Yuma, AZ.
  22. I'm intrigued, to be honest. I might have to look at getting a set of these. I have to get new grips for the Zelos shaft testing anyway...
