  1. Yeah, I was interested to see what they would offer. Seeing it now at $40 a box I'm not really interested anymore. There is a multitude of Premium DTC balls that can be had for this price or less. Oncore Vero X1 and X2 come in around this price (X1 less if you buy two boxes, X2 same price if you buy 2 boxes). I've really thought these Oncore balls were the best for me but I'm not really purchasing too often as I find the price creeps too close to Pro V1's. I bought a bunch when they had Black Friday sale (ended up at $27/box), and hoping it makes me through the season. Snell and Vice balls come in less than this as well. At $40 for this PXG ball I'm not jumping to get any. Might try it at some point, but the price point to me significantly lowers my interest level.
  2. Ordered and received a PXG Bat Attack Battle Ready Putter. I've had my Spider putter since the beginning in 2008 and I haven't looked back. I'm just finding it a bit too heavy for me these days and wanted to try something a little different, but still face balanced and such. Had it for one round and I like it. But next year I will really get into it and sort it out proper.
  3. Either a Sim2 5 wood, or a PXG putter. Or maybe even a new 60° wedge. But on my Christmas wish list is the Alphard Club Booster V2!
  4. Played hockey all my life (still playing 2 - 3 times a week in winter). I can agree that it makes the transition easier, but I wonder (just my own thoughts) if the slapshot also contributes to the "over the top" style golf swing. I've noticed it in my swing and when I watch my 14 year old play golf, I can also see how he hits the ball like a slap shot and in turn creates a slice. My other 12 year old who doesn't play hockey though hits a nice straight through shot and almost dead straight. No data to go off of though, just my observations. Plus, lots of hockey players have nothing do during the spring and summer months (especially if you play for the Leafs!!)
  5. Last year I tried the Elixr and didn't like it. I'm just across the border from Buffalo (love that they have the Bills Mafia ball) and thought same thing. I'd give them a go. Hated the Elixr and wrote off OnCore as crap ball. Lost distance off my driver as well, quite noticeably. But for some reason I decided to give it another shot this year with the Vero X1. Big difference for me. I love the feel of the Vero and no loss in driver distance for me. I've only used it twice so far, but gonna use it a couple more times. Now that the Vero X2 is coming out, I might give that a go next year. Also, the game ball that I have been using mostly is either Vice Tour or Vice Pro. I find that both of them work very well for me, with a price point that is great!
  6. But.......Everyone in Canada knows that friend Bob in Vancouver, or Steve in Toronto
  7. Currently 3 brands. Taylormade for Driver, Fairways, and hybrid. Also Taylormade putter. Iron set is Cobra, but Cleveland for wedges. However, I might be going to 4 as I'm looking at a PXG putter this offseason.
  8. Like it says, selling my Cobra putter. It's the Grandsport 35. Right Handed, 35" Barely used. Used for 5 rounds before I said that's enough. I just can't make the switch to blade and going back to mallets. SOLD
  9. Played this weekend at a course that I have yet to play. Shot of the day was hole 10. Tee box is low in the valley so you have to hit up about 40 feet to the fairway. It was into the wind, but still got a hold of it and put it middle left fairway. 3 wood over the bunker and onto the right of the green for a 48' Eagle putt that almost went in. Would've been nice to drain that, but still very happy with the birdie on that hole.
  10. Follow up to this one. I have kept the shaft that came with it and it's working wonders for me now. Most shots are straight, sometimes a slight fade. But they are going where I want them. Really, really liking the feel of this driver now.
  11. Picked up a used Stealth Plus Driver today. I decided I just wanted my woods to all match the same brand. Was a good decision? We will see. Hit it on the range and one round and had a massive hook left almost every time (normally I have a fade/slice). But I think I'm going to put my old shaft from my Cobra on there and see as I was fitted to that shaft.
  12. I'm a bit confused, the above link doesn't have anything on Forged Tec Irons. It had Rad Speed, King Tour MIM, and then King Tour MIM again but in copper. So nothing on Forged Tec. So I will weigh in here as I have these irons, just no in copper. I'm about the same as you @Plowedge81, shooting mid 90's. Last year I upgraded from cavity back GI irons (Callaway X20's) to these King Forged Tec 2020 irons. I find that the consistency on hitting these to be better than my old set. Distance is better overall, but more importantly not losing massive yardage on off center hits. In short answer, I have found forgiveness to be better on these and my shots to be purer. However, I was fitted for these and I'm certain that a shaft fitted for my swing also makes a big difference on being able to get consistent shots compared to my old "off the shelf" clubs. I can say this though, I am very pleased with my Forged Tec irons.
  13. I've been fighting this year with a torn rotator cuff that I did pre COVID while playing keeper in soccer. Thankfully it's an annoyance only and not affecting my activities too much. Doesn't seem to be a problem when golfing, thank goodness. I'm still playing keeper for my premier team, but I really should think about stopping that. At 43 playing keeper against a bunch of 18 - 20 year olds......my body is starting to tell me it isn't the happiest about that decision. Maybe time to slow down and put more focus on less jarring type of body activities (like golf!). I'm just hoping that it doesn't get worse, it's been a while and it's still an annoyance, but live able. Just don't want to have to go for surgery.
  14. I can agree here. I am using series 5 Apple watch. I use the GPS on the watch too and can't get thru a full round without the battery dying. Even when it's fully charged and I put in on theatre mode and clear out all the other apps from background, etc. I've gone to using the phone GPS instead.
