    Tried the Wilson Cortex - Initial Thoughts & Pics

    To be fair it goes the same way for the TEE EXS at $299. For that price you can get a new Ping G400 (non max) driver with the drop in prices now. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I never thought about using it to grab a ball from under a tree. I will have to remember that for next year. Thanks for the tip! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    LOL Oh no I don’t deserve anything and I would feel really crappy to win like that. I do find it funny that Kittle goes for 210 and a touchdown in the first half, then Mullens decides to quit throwing to him. Nice to see a “blackngold” alum have a career day. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I have never actually used the ball retriever on it as I don’t play a lot of course with water. Plus I don’t have the patience to stand there and look for them! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Yes sir I am. I absolute hate the bag covers that come with the bags. I think they are a pita. Plus I tend to like stupid things. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Any chance I can get that as a guaranteed win? I am still not sure I have this locked up. Your 3 players left are capable of putting up over 100 points between them so it isn’t over by any means. I will say that I got called out to a not working furnace emergency and when I got home I found out Cooper went off while I was gone. So that was nice! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I was just talking with my wife about the league and realized that my entire starting lineup was not drafted by me. All players were acquired through free agency or trade. Apparently I drafted like crap!

    I am happy with what I got out of Josh Allen and what I have gotten from Kittle so far. My only regret to this point was the last minute switch of Edelman for Shepard.

    Everyone? Rick Shiels review shows 111 CHS and 160.9 BS and that is 1mph slower than his optimal swing speed and above average for ball speed. Plus keep in mind if he went with a shaft that is better suited for him to reduced the spin and help with launch, the cortex may very well be better than his G400 LST. As it is he is within a yard or 2 in carry with of his fully fitted driver. I just don't think your blanket statement that everybody is seeing less ball speed is correct. It may very well be true for you and some others but certainly not everybody. On a side note, not everybody is concerned with ball speed. I will gladly give up 5-10 yards to find the fairway more often.

    I haven’t seen a lot mentioning slower ball speeds. Everything I have read have been stating similar ball speeds but higher launch and spin. Granted I haven’t had a chance to hit it myself yet but I’m hoping to before too long. Also nobody seems to be able to demo with a shaft that fits so I wonder how skewed everyone’s numbers are and what they would be when properly fit. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    So you got Jeff Wilson Jr. Now I don’t feel bad at all. I was hoping to get him when I learn Brieda was out but he was already gone. Wanna Trade? Let’s reopen trading! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    What is your biggest swing fault

    My biggest swing fault is getting to quick with my backswing. When that happens I always end up OTT. Slices with the driver and chunks with irons are my clear sign that I need to slow down. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Lol. Strategy? I don’t think I can beat both [mention=55883]Bergtaur[/mention] and you so if I luck out this week my only shot may be to help put you in jeopardy this week. Probably all for nothing but got to try something. I need the Rams, Chiefs, and Bears to combine for as few points and yards as possible and some long shots of mine to pan out.

    What's your view on tape on the face of demo clubs?

    I thought 2 things while reading this. 1. The Assistant is a whiny baby that got upset over losing a possible sale and cried to the Head Pro. 2. The Head Pro is a DB. There was no reason for him to come out and say something to you while you were warming up other than he wanted to show off his "authority". I don't blame you for never buying there again. As far as demoing with tape or plastic on a club, it is not something I would ever do. I would think that every performance factor of the driver head would be effected. The only meaningful thing that could come from that situation would be how the club feels when you swing it. Otherwise it sounds like a waste of time to me.
