  1. I've owned a BatCaddy electric for almost three years, and it does what I want it to. It has no remote, and cost $440 with a heavy duty lead-acid battery, which is rated to easily cover 36 holes (I only did that once without a re-charge, although there are times, after 18 holes, where the recharge transformer shows full charge immediately upon plug-in.). I did not want a remote control, because I have seen a lot of accidents with them due to operator inattention involving bunkers, hillsides, other players, etc. I'll never go back to a non-powered pushcart.

  2. I've played 3 rounds with it; I like it a lot...it is loooonnnnggg, and seems very much under my control...not enough grass around yet to tell how it will spin on half-wedge shots, but full wedges produce the same results as Pro V1's or Bridgestone B330 RX's for me (one hop and stop)...so far so good...

  3. No scorecard, I'm afraid, because it was more than 20 years ago...Spyglass...long, narrow, unforgiving and the greens were like glass...impossible to stop the ball near the hole...way tougher than Winged Foot West, Bethpage Black, Pinehurst #2, Troon North (Monument), Sebonac, etc. Pebble the next day was a walk in the park, even the 2nd shot over the chasm on 8...

  4. This device seems like it would enable you to work on minimizing horizontal head movement (swaying). My problem has always been vertical head movement, leading to inconsistent club face contact height, particularly with irons. I wonder if there is an equivalent and effective training aid for that problem.

  5. I find it quite amusing that some folks want to post replies to this topic as if the question was one of marketing, rather than product quality. I'd hazard a guess that many of us couldn't care less about marketing.

    Take the Jetspeed line, for example. 1) the driver is the longest in the current marketplace for lots of players (I have observed three very competitive Senior pros with 100+ mph swing speeds play it in a significant local tournament in October; each swears they've never had a longer stick.) It's longer than the SLDR for me, which was longer than anything else I've played. 2) The 3 wood and the hybrids shoved my RBZ Stage II's out of the bag. Better contact, better feel, more accurate, longer.You're missing a bet if you don't try them, especially at the highly discounted prices for discontinued clubs. TaylorMade's marketing failure has created a great opportunity for players.

  6. I've been following My Golf Spy for more than a year, and have used its reviews as a starting point for equipment acquisitions, as my PING Ketsch will attest. I saw a forum topic today on which I would like to comment (Worst product), so I joined up. I've been playing the game for more than 50 years, I play 60-80 rounds a year and this year, thanks to the Ketsch, my SLDR driver and Jetspeed 3 wood and hybrids, I got my handicap down to a record low of 6.7 in midsummer. Every year my index is highest in May and lowest in August, and the peak to trough is more than 3 strokes. I ended the handicap year (I live in the met area and play most of my golf at Bethpage) at 9.7.
