First let me start off by saying if this has been brought up in the past I am sorry for bringing up something old. If is hasn't maybe other see value in it as well.
I have been a member of my golf spy now for at least two years and I have learned to turn to my golf spy for unbiased reviews both from the MGS staff and members. I have found a tremendous amount of value in all the information you can find from all the posts and reviews on this site.
In this sport the vast amounts of money the top manufacturers pump into "creative marketing" it is impossible for a single consumer to cut through all the hype. Manufacturers are by nature profit driven which leads to products being produced and marketed to consumers even if it is not true improvement over the previous years model.
I have always wondered how much improvement is truely seen from year to year in all the "revolutionary engineering" the vendors claim. Is there anyway MGS staff could do multi year reviews on irons/drivers/putters to find the best of the best out of the best? Put them head to head and see how it all shakes out.
Baselining performance increase from year to year would prove valuable in knowing how often a change in equipment truely equates to a stroke or two improvement. I don't know what the rest of the MGS member think but investment of a couple thousand dollars to upgrade to all the latest equipment isn't in my budget year after year.
What is everyone else's opinion? Would this data be of value to anyone else?
