  1. A dab of super glue on the bottom of the ferrule is the easiest way to seat the pesky sliding piece of plastic.

    If the ferrule is very loose and has a collar as posted earlier, try turning to get the best fit then glue.

    Yes the ferrulle is typically for display but 1) if you know its there you are looking for it each time the stix is pulled from the bag.

    2) as also stated there are those that actually provide some support like the collared model.

  2. BIlly bobs has a selection of solid colored ferrules as do Cell parts and Grail golf. I prefer the Billy Bobs as I get a real voice on the other end of the phone.

    The BB&F are very nice and bring old school back to life. there is a $$ difference to be warned

    At my typical green fee rates, that's roughly 500 rounds of golf 😮!  I keep thinking the price of these will start dropping into the reasonable level, but apparently not.  

    At tech improves so will the price. Meaning go up. I believe the larger units are for folks that do fittings, pros and swing coaches, etc. I.e. people getting paid to be in the industry and those that have a disposable income or just plain ate up with the info the unit can provide.

    for golfs wanting to basically improve and track stats much like using game golf or Arccos, the MEVOs and skytracs of the world may be a better choice to track distances, directions, speeds alike. AND not leave a smoking crater in your wallet.

  4. Wth new units starting a 15k and going up it would appear that a used or refurb is the way to go.

    Personally a refurb is my choice as the company should have gone through the unit and you end up with some thing reliable.

    where a used unit is all on you when the check clears (does that even happen any more?).

    Then you need to ask your self what you want from the unit. Basic info, SS distance etc or more advanced stuff like acceleration profiles and swing path or  even the ability to link up with other sims.

    Finally, it depends on your mental make up to the technology you trust. That should narrow down your choices.

    Then contact the company and see if a unit exists. Personally I'm a flightscope guy, Mostly because Im used to it.

    Okay..... I'm not very savvy when it comes to the technical side of golf.


    I'm seriously thinking about getting fit for a driver. What numbers should I be looking for as far as launch angle, spin and dispersion.... as a general rule? 


    most fitters using a launch monitor will show you the optimal numbers, assume best case scenario, then give you best number generated via initial testing then move to parts that should get you from part A to Part B and best that can be accomplished.

  6. I jumped into the ONE on the other side of the ball (lefty)

    This is the first anser style putter I have owned and like you a newer stroke was a confidence killer.

    However, the ball rolled well and I was left with a bunch of tap ins. Just got to trust myself the putter works fine

  7. We've been counter balancing putters since 2000.

    Counter balancing IMO helps override the fast twitch muscles in the hands up to the forearms.

    We used and still do use an insert weight but the superstroke had made it easy to add the weight.

    There are others and as long as you are comfortable with the feel and style of the grip it aint all bad.
