  2. I am stoked to read the results of this test event if I am not a tester!! Handicap: 16.7 The name, Hogan, carries a lot of weight with me. From the way he played the game to the way he lived his life. He was and still is a great role model!
  3. Thanks for all the replies everyone. I ended up going to a different store and getting fit again. I learned two things. The first, I killed the X2 Hot driver again, which reaffirmed my reasons to buy it. The second, I still could not consistently keep the spin numbers down on the SLDR, which kept the distance numbers close to the same as the X2. I also wasn't as consistent as the SLDR. I have a feeling a different shaft might help with this, but I figure I'd buy the X2 Hot driver, save $100 bucks and if and when my game improves I will upgrade to a new driver. Thanks again for the feedback. The MGS forum is awesome!
  4. Great write up Jondagcl! I have never used Golfshot Classic but I was a TourCaddie (old name for Golfshot Pro) before the update. Speaking from this side of the app the update brought a much need fix to the navigation of TourCaddie. Before it wasn't easy to figure out how to navigate between all the screens but now it is great. The font and overall layout has just a great polish to it that it was lacking before. It is really easy on the eyes now. I played 18 with it about a week ago and noticed that it chewed through my battery faster than the old version. This could have been the way I was using it as well so I need to try it again. All in all it is a great update and I think it is better than any of the other ones on the market.
  5. Thanks for the replies whiskey golf and DanUsh. I think I will go see another fitter on Friday and see if he says anything different.
  6. Hi guys, I am looking for your expertise here. I am a long time golfer who just got back into the game a year ago. I have been practicing for the last year and have got my handicap down to a 19. I decided for Father's Day that I wanted a new driver so that is what I did last Saturday. I went to my local big box store, Golfsmith, and got “fitted” for a new driver. The fitter had me hit the Callaway X2 Hot 9º, Taylormade SLDR 10.5º, Cobra Bio Cell 9.5º, and the Ping G25 9.5º. I honestly enjoyed hitting all of them and for me, didn't hit any of them bad. The fitter used the launch monitor to check launch angle, club/ball speed, and spin to make sure I had the correct shaft and loft. Spin numbers were close to the same on all of them and I was surprised the SLDR spin numbers weren't lower than the other clubs. I carried the X2 Hot the furthest and since none of them really stood out I went with the X2 for the low price. Mind you I haven't opened/used the club because I may return it based on what is said here. My question is since I am a high handicapper is it not necessary for a more comprehensive fitting then what I received? I read articles on here where guys are being fitted with different shafts, lofts…to achieve the numbers the fitter is after. I just didn't feel like this guy did that. It was more like "let's find you a club you will buy today.” I want to make sure I get the best club for my money. Any advice you guys can give me would be great. Thanks.
