  1. The $100 difference is more than worth it. I got fit at True Spec NYC in 2019. Here is a review of my experience
  2. Yup. The wedges are absolutely phenomenal. The star of the show in my eyes only because they can truly go toe to toe white any other wedge out there, and in some cases, have more bounce/grind options then the competitors outside of Vokey
  3. I do really wish I would have gotten my choice of iron shafts (Modus 105x). Would have definitely a more “enjoyable” review for sure. But I had to play with the cards I was dealt and did my best to ignore my hatred of the shafts and what they did to my swing and focus on the club heads and how they performed
  4. My full Cobra review is up! https://forum.mygolfspy.com/tests/3-full-bag-reviews-cobra-connect-5/?do=findReview&review=79
  5. ALL club head manufacturing in South East Asia is shut down. PING (and several other manufacturers) is no longer giving lead time windows on new orders.
  6. You probably have him on ignore under your NiftyNiblick account and not this account
  7. a couple tricks I do: I hold my putter upside down until it is my turn I don’t tap down repaired ball marks with my putter On tap ins I make sure I stop moving and then tap it in rather than just tap it in as I’m walking up to the hole
  8. Bingo. Mow high and more often. You should only be mowing off 1/3 of the grass height each time you mow.
  9. Well the review is in progress and just hit 1,000 words -- And I haven't even begun typing of the thoughts on the Cobra clubs yet!
  10. Handicap: 4.8 Course: Greenbriar at Whittingham GC 71.2/126 Bomb and Gouge Score: 41 Irons Only: 41 7 iron distance: 197 yards. Par 3 playing 205 to the front and had a little breeze at my back and gave it my all
  11. What would it take for you to start on Jan 1st of a given year with a set of 14 clubs and not be allowed to so much as demo another club for 365 days?
  12. I took off tomorrow and I will definitely be completing these challenges!
  13. Just finished editing all of my photos In Lightroom. Going to start putting my review together over the weekend with the goal to have it posted early next week!
  14. Haha my review is done with them, but I’ve given them to my brother in law for him to try for the rest of the season and I’ll be posting small updates regarding his time with them after I post my official review
  15. To be fair I got one of the sets of sensors I have for free through CCC so I wanted to pay it forward
  16. I have two sets of Arccos caddie sensors and I figured I could go down to one set now. The cost for you? Free99 (you still need to pay for a subscription) How do you get them? Simply post in this thread about why you want the sensors and how you’d use them to make you better. I will pick a “winner” on Sunday after the conclusion of the Ryder Cup and then ship the sensors free of charge
  17. First round (and first time swinging a club) in 3 weeks due local courses aerating, rains, flooding and me having a hell of a cold Decided to take my usual set out and not use Arccos. Played surprisingly well given that I had some rust to knock off Shot +6 78 with two double bogeys from lost balls off the tee. Other than those two swing I played really well. Struck my irons about as good as I ever have. The workout program and swing speed training I’ve been doing has given me about a half a club more distance with the irons which was great to see. Burned a bunch of lips on some short birdie putts but did get two to fall
  18. Yes, Contact ping. Inserts coming out, warping, or caving in can have a big impact on performance.
  19. Cmon man - you know how the game works. You of all people are not one to buy equipment when it is brand new just because you want new equipment. And most of the "averages Joes" are in the same boat - they aren't out there buying new equipment when it comes out just for the sake of buying it. I mean think about it - if you are doing things the right way and getting fit into equipment - you should really only considering buying a new driver once ever 3-5 years. So is $50 more for a new driver every 5 years really that big of a deal?
  20. https://mygolfspy.com/the-increasing-costs-of-drivers/ Some good stuff in that article. Also PINGS is just catching up now to the other big OEMs that had already increased their price over the last few years.
  21. Shipping expenditures in July 2021 were 43% higher than they were in July 2020. That is ocean, air and over the road. It's not just the material costs themselves - it is the entire supply chain
  22. Bingo. Price of metals have gone up. Price of rubber has gone up. Cost of shipping, especially overseas as gone WAY up. These are real costs of doing business, and unfortunately businesses have margins to maintain and often pass price/cost increases to the end user. It sucks, but it's unfortunately how business/capitalism work
  23. Dr. Sasho Mackenzie did a study with golfers across a range of handicaps and all golfers were found to be more accurate when swinging faster than when trying make a “fairway finder” swing
