  1. I certainly love playing the classics too- I have some great thrift store funds: Walter Hagen "Forged in USA" blades 5-p + Hogan Radial 4i, ~'71 Hogan Bounce Sole 2-p and a set of beautiful Mac Muirfield blades 3-p that I got off the classifieds here. I'll combo one of these sets up with my Dad's old custom persimmons 1, 3, 5, and sometimes 7, with an old Ram sand wedge my Dad gave me as a kid and one of the various brass putters I've got. It's great fun, and nothing beats the feel of puring one. Funny thing is I can still whoop my buddy and be neck and neck with my lady- with them using their frontline stuff. When they use one of my classic sets, it can get pretty... colorful. I think everyone should give it a try- you can find a couple clubs cheap (they don't have to be wallhangers)- if for no other reason than to get a little perspective, and again, that feeling...
  2. I've recently found one of these balls in a box marked SR3- balls I actually liked. Are these just another year's version? Forgive me off can't post pictures, but the alignment aid/model stamp is identical except for the *. <SR3*>
  3. I really wish cart manufacturers would include pictures of the carts folded- folded size is pretty important to me.
  4. I still don't understand why they couldn't keep making balls.
  5. I hit a few balls on a break from Christmas shopping (10hrs- can you believe that?!) with the '85 drivers (thanks for my sanity, 2nd Swing!), anyways, I concur with JLukes- and add that the 585 was giving me real good numbers too- a little bit high launching, but that's probably shaft, and real good ball speed, although the 785 nicked it by a couple mph on good strikes and had a better flight for me (again, shaft). Both felt/sounded great, although I'm one who never had a specific type of feel/sound- these were great, very satisfying. Of course, this was inside, on GC Quad, so YMMV...
  6. I think I may already know the answer to this, but why go with a Tour head for the 3i?
  7. I'm so happy for Nelly- it would be a dream to play professionally with a sibling.
  8. Ok- I just want to get a few things straight here, and correct me if I'm wrong, but these balls won't compete with the AVX- AVX is top tier pricing, and urethane (and not a replacement for NXT). Also, Zstar is a tour level, urethane, ball. Qstar and Qstar Tour are different levels- Qstar Tour being are urethane ball "for slower swingers", alá Project A, non Tour Qstar is a ionomer (surlyn) covered, soft"er" ball... Not sure of pricing yet, but these appear to line up against Qstar, Duo soft spin, and others like this, while possibly trying to undercut Titleist Tour Soft. It looks to me like they'll be marketed as offering urethane like performance for less coin.
  9. I'm in the "both" camp- if you're brand new to the game, take a lesson or two, and get a basic fitting to get you close- at least get the clubs you have (assuming they're in the ballpark of what you should be swinging) dialed in to your specs, or get your specs so you know what to look for while shopping. However, lessons, or even a basic thirty minute session or two will do a ton to get you headed the right way. Take it from there.
  10. Stu's damn right- 59's please!
  11. Don't forget the 2 1/2, 3 1/2 woods!
  12. I'd check the "Master Golf Ball Review Thread" in the member review section for something that lines up with your needs and then see what you can find online (if you haven't already).
  13. Side note: it seems like we're hearing a lot of guys question getting rid of their PE2s...
  14. There is a thread for contests, but they are unaffiliated with MGS. MGS occasionally runs a contest (Major giveaways, etc), and these are generally announced on the blog.
  15. There definitely is a TV commercial, but I meant (snarkily) the website.
