  5. I'm Frank from Brookfield, IL, US of A Current set are Tour Edge HT MAX D, PW through 4 iron - graphite shaft R. Lamkin Crossline grips. Handicap 30 - still a work in progress. I'd like the C300 Forged if chosen.
  6. Frank from Illinois Driver Ping G25 3W Tour Edge Trilogy 20° hybrid Ping G25 Irons 4 - PW Tour Edge HD Max 50° wedge - Callaway X Series 54° & 58° Wedge - Cleveland RTX 588 Putter - STX SS2 30 handicap, or thereabouts I need to add distance. I can hit fairly straight. I am working with an instructor. I need to do that more often.
  7. I went out again and this time tested the Wilson Duo v the Callaway Diablo. Unlike my earlier test, the putts were about the same. I did hit the Duos, on average, 15 yards longer than the Callaways. Again, there was less left to right on the drives. I will be getting some of these after I go through the 4 dozen Srixons that I own. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in the test.
  8. Dynamic Duo I was thrilled that I was chosen to test anything golf. To preface this, I shoot about 100 on a good day. My swing speed is about 90 mph. I was surprised that I got a dozen golf balls to test. I was expecting a 3 pack. Nothing but the best from MGS. The day before my round I had to mark the balls and other preparations for the golfer (see image). I decided that the best test would be to hit with my usual ball, Srixon Soft Feel for a few holes and then with the Duo for a few. Then switch back and forth. I chose the Soft Feel a few years ago because I like the way they worked around the green and especially putting. I went out to The Sanctuary in New Lenox, IL. I decided I would measure the distance and count putts. It was a busy Saturday so I did not want to get too clever lest I slow things up and invite the wrath of the rangers. I found that on average, I got 9 more yard per drive with the Duo. These were shots that were hit with the driver only. I also noticed the drives went straighter. I still tend to go left to right with my driver. Can a ball really straighten out my mini slice? That would be an engineering marvel to rival the pyramids. I used each ball for 9 holes. Overall, I putted 4 less times with the Duo (14 to 18). I am not sure it is because they pitched better or putted truer. Overall I liked the ball. I hope to test it again soon to see if the distance and putting numbers hold up.
  9. I took a quick look on a retail web site for the cost of clubs. This list is somewhat random Callaway Diablo irons $799 Cleveland CG16 irons $799 Nike VR Pro $899 Taylor Made CB Irons $1099 Cobra ZL driver $349 Titleist 910D2 driver $399 How much of this cost goes directly to sponsorships of pro players? Some manufacturers seem to lock up as many top stars as they can (Nike & Callaway come to mind). I realize that having your clubs in a top pro's hand is marketing 101 however how much to we pay for that privilege?
