  1. First review I did was for a shaft that just did not work for me. After hitting it for a few rounds it was sent to another MGS member. If I can't use it, someone should.
  2. Jon - 45 Lexington, Ky Biggest bugaboo - inconsistent swing. Causes too many erratic shots and poor chips every round.
  3. 4 shirts, that's all? At least put forth an effort before placing your ad.
  4. I am 45 and play muni courses every weekend. I have played about 15 different courses this year and the yardage is so different its hard to have a standard. I play with my son and we will play the back tees - these range from 7100 yards down to 6200 yards depending on the course. My scores are pretty close to the same regardless of length because my putting and chipping are horrible.
  5. The club you say is "pretty banged up" looks damn good to me for a used club. My clubs look horrible compared to that one and they still hit the ball as well as they did when I bought them 15 years ago.
  6. I had been hitting my sons G30 while he is away at school, but recently went back to my RBZ Stage 2. Now I am thinking about trying a new shaft in the RBZ. The only issue is shafts confuse the hell out of me so not even sure where to start.
  7. Anyone ever notice if the scorecard yardage is quite a bit different than what the holes actually play? I played a course last week that was a little over 6500 according to the scorecard but came out to a little under 6200 according to the GPS numbers. I know tee locations can differ from day to day, but a difference of 300+ yards seems odd to me.
  8. For those of you that do buy used clubs, is there a particular club (wedge, putter) that you won't buy used? If not, is there a certain quality you won't go below, nothing worse than very good? Asking because a friend is getting ready to outfit his son with a new to him set and wondering if there is anything to avoid. Thanks.
  9. I would love to see this happen. If you take the past 3 Top Driver testing data and compare them, it seems as though drivers are getting worse. Of the top 5 this year, the longest was 250.5yds, while the shortest of the top five from '15 and '16 were 256.7 and 252. Accuracy is a little better with this years drivers having 2 of the top 10, numbers 6 and 7. The '17's also finish with the bottom 4 (and 5 of the bottom 6) in ball speed. Is that a result of better testing or worse clubs? That is what I think MGS members would like to know.

  11. My FIL bought all 3 clubs, once he bought the driver he got an email offering buy BOGO for the other 2 (17 and 20 degrees I think). He hits them better than his driver and regular fairway woods, but his swing speed may top out in the mid 80's. They have really helped his game and he is right in the middle of heir target audience. I tried hitting it and it was a disaster. Way to much flex in the shaft and the loss if distance was horrible, but it did hit the fairway.
