    Ive been a long Time lurker
  1. I called them from Canada and they said they only deal through local partners - and the sales advisor told me explicitly that they don’t ship internationally to regular folks like me - I was bummed given the club deals - you can’t believe how much it can cost to get those clubs in my grubby hands here when going though the local channels ....
  2. I really like the stroke lab shafts - was able to pick up a couple shafts as well as a few donor putters that gave up their shafts - I find it to be an interesting feeling - probably similar to stability - nice head weight feeling and smooth balance for me
  3. I haven’t played since November - winter in Toronto - and it shows SG stats for me going back a full year so it seems like it’s applied to previous shot data - I’m very happy to see this addition as it was the big gap for me
  4. when I last ruined a shaft with too much heat, once I got it out of the head, it had this weird "bloomed" appearance in which finer and things were clearly visible and it was clear I cooked any binding glues etc beyond function - basically too much heat seems to magically re-engineer a graphite shaft back to its natural fiber mode of being
  5. Compact and light are a bit conflicted in my experience The most compact in terms of storage and transport has been Clic Gear - but they aren't light and not necessarily the easiest rollers around (from my experiences). But the Clic Gear was one of my favourites - I think its nearly indestructible. The easiest roller, lightest in use I have owned has been the Sun Mountain SpeedCart - rolls easily and felt quite effortless in use BUT it has a large storage and transport footprint. Had a Bagboy quad an it was compact but also not a great roller. My current cart, a Walker Trolley (https:
  6. A friend of mine played around with adding some weight to the putter head to clean up his rotation a bit - helped him keep his putter and have it working toward a more neutral flow and presentation at impact - but it did reveal he was pulling a bit as I recall so than chased that for a bit which he tracked to alignment - seems quite happy now though so this path could be an option since it is possible on DIY basis if you have data to measure the changes/trends - which it sounds like you do Stay safe
  7. I’ve done all variants and the electric cart - motocaddy S 1 DHC in my case- was a great addition to my walking game - I now do a blend of walking, push cart and electric cart but the motocaddy days were a great way to enjoy golf and still get walking benefits
  8. My friend had a ClicGear and the Sync and fit wasn't perfect BUT it seems to have nailed the angle that club are presented while in the bag on the cart. I've had similar experience with Ping Traverse bags. But some standard Cart bags don't have the right angles for a bag sitting on a cart (on an angle) vs standing upright on a power cart. I didn't realize this could be an issue, but it for sure was with an older BagBoy cart bag. I've never really found any stand bags that work well on carts although my Jones classic stand bag strangely comes closer than most for me. When I was a p
  9. I don't recall the actual numbers, but Arccos and Shotscope data both confirm that players using those systems are short far more than 50% of the time - as a result the standard recommendation is hit one more club unless the risk of penalties etc outweigh the benefit. My data is below - my improvement in "short pin/green" performance was addressed more recently in Arccos (bottom graphic). The other thing for me was, at my course, long tends to be deadly for score on eight holes so my short approach tendencies were learned responses. That said, my conservative approach was (and is)
  10. Shotscope support has been awesome for me - reach out to them and I’d expect a response in hours
  11. My coach helped me get rid of the dreaded chicken wing by working with weighted clubs, so weight can/ will have an impact on swing dynamics - even if it’s only to experience the right feeling in a dramatic manner as my coach introduced
  12. Hey @toehold57 this is awesome. I’m also a shotscope user and it’s clear the patterns they talk about in their blogs are relevant since you called out most of them. My only beef with Shotscope is the lack of strokes gained - my sense is that it would get us to the level below what you shared and lead to further granularity of focus. and yes the web dashboard is far more useful for understanding trends and opportunities. One thing I’d like to see is impact of penalties- I don’t recall any such information nugget within Shotscope but I know I bleed more than my fair share on penalties.
  13. @Scooby456 thanks - that describes me as well. I once made the mistake of trying a friends 64 degree lob in a golf dome - full swing - not recommended as the guy in the swing bay above me saw a ball go nearly vertical .... there are better ways to make friends I must say
