  1. Love this. Long a fan of Mizuno but have not played many of their woods. Thomas/Washington SLRs 10 deg/fujikura speeder 65 S 95/10 Preferred ST 180 loft/shaft --- LH, 9.5, probably an R depends on what shaft, I often end up S in stock shafts to get spin correct

  6. How much do each of us need to chip in to get Krank Formula 7 in the annual driver test protocol and bring #datacratic to the hype? "If you haven't ordered the New Krank Golf Formula 7 yet, you are leaving distance on the table! There is no faster way to gain 20+ yards and to make sure your ball ends up in the short grass than to add a Krank Driver to your bag!" Of course, they may refuse during the fitting ordering to do that...we can't provide a "generic" driver to a set of testers, each must be "custom fit" (which they do without a launch monitor...). They live off their position in World Long Drive which is generally two man race between Callaway and Krank and because they are direct, you gave to go at this as a consumer blind based on wow, I just saw xyz pound a 400 yard drive that thing must be magic. But I am willing to chip in a few more dollars to my donation pile if we can make this happen. Anyone else?

  8. I start with do I need something new? I am always looking and I like shiny new toys as much as anyone but would rather put the money into more golf. So I buy wedges the most because I wear them out. As a lefty, availability sucks in stores and a store isn't really the place to find a wedge unless you know exactly what you want. Really any club I want to try it on a range if not in play etc. That said: Wedges - look and feel, different brands swing weights vary. If it is a lob wedge I am looking at what versatility the bounce and grind is giving me. Sand wedge I am going to look at how it sits when opened. I like a straight leading edge. I like soft feel but now blend that against wear. I have Cleveland, Ping, and Mizuno but generally play Vokey. Mizunos are great but wore out too fast. Pings are hard. Vokey is good blend. Cleveland nothing wrong just like Vokey shape and options better. So I change when they wear out Driver launch monitor after like shape etc. I tend to lag latest thing here another 2 yards isn't going to change my game. Adjustability great for fitting but then...get the shaft, head combo right and life is fine SLDRs here. Launch monitor and range. Sound is big issue here for me. 3w seeking now. Shape, low profile play well from fairway, flight and workability I like this outside another find a great one and stick with it till it breaks club. Irons -do they come LH? Look and feel always played Mizuno so far. Hit lots of clubs first with no monitor just feel and sound. Then launch monitor and range. Workability. Consistency. Feel there is something about clubs that just swing right there is swing weight sure but there is more to it some heads just balance across face differently. Who has a lot of this right (hate them or not) is titleist at free fitting events. Launch monitor, green grass, every head every shaft and they have good LH support. Putter hmm I try them all the time at stores. I have only used 3 in over 30 years. I started with Ping Zing 2 why? Pro recommendation and they pioneered fitting. I used that till balata went away and golf balls became rocks. Decided to go to insert with Odessey because again they kind of in my mind pioneered that. Found I was better on short putts worse on long and would go back and forth a lot especially as the ball evolved. A couple years ago switched to Ping Shea H after LOTs of trying lots of things. Used my Ping putting app data to help with that. Wanted TR putting is coming together. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. name: Thomas State: WA Strengths: short game is my strength and I spend more than 1/2 my practice time on it. Have a backyard green to assist with this. My strengths are good hands, and an imagination to work different kinds of shots Weakness: intermediate distances: 50 yard, 30 yard, this is where I am losing strokes I am wavering between 10-12 hcp, next goal is 5 to do so GameGolf tells me short game and approach (125-100) strokes lost to a 5 is 2.91 and 2.39 — so it is “good” but could be better. Distance control. Specs: 50 SS 54 SS – half moon grind 58 TS – lob combo grind All White, Dial-A-Wedge Gold, Length +.25″, AWT 2.0 or Prefer: KBS Tour Stiff
  10. just was on the "emerging" new site... http://miuragolf.com/#product-lineand as a lefty see everything is RH only, it is like a thinner product line than the current line. Hopefully this is just "incomplete"
  11. At shareholders meeting yesterday it was one of the topics CEO discussed. He hopes to work out issues with supplier and bring them back. Which means they must be working directly with Nassau will be interesting to see how it plays out. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Well there already is Miura Giken and TourSpec will be the distributor for Miura as a whole so, sure I can see more premium clubs like that (not that "standard" Miuras are cheap). The key thing is the family is still involved, ie your clubs can be hand ground by the "hand's of god" and his son...as long as that stays true and they keep building clubs for lefties, they are still top of my short-list this year though my game would probably be better served with i200s (and I would save a LOT of money that way).
  13. Don't dig boa myself. Launch monitor/sim for personal yes I want a swing caddie 3 that connections to my phone. More graphite iron shaft innovation like Aerotech with consistent tight dispersion yes. Apple watch2 there are lots of cool options here....oh wait with gps on it only runs 5 hours ☹️. Continuation of BallWars. Integration of technology like gamegolf. Club silencer system [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  15. Still I applaud them for pushing the envelope. If you really are trying to innovate whether it is just in creating market buzz and face it they needed the adrenaline you are going to have failure otherwise you are just walking the safe well worn path. Which would have produced yet another same thing we've always seen welcome to the party tmade callaway ping already own have fun fitting for next with cobra and touredge. They need to make conforming plates and ship them to stores and all current customers and move forward. Turn the negative into positive as much as they can we are pushing limits of innovation and time to market but we always have your back. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
