  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. If I could mix up my bag my changes would be: Radspeed XB Driver in 9* -- I could use a little more spin. Unfortunately the 9* XB was unavailable during my fitting Radspeed Tour 5 wood -- this would replace the 3 wood and serve as my 2nd shot club into Par 5s King Tec Hybrid -- 4H would take the spot of both the 7 wood and 4 utility King Utility 2 Iron - This would be my secondary off the tee club
  4. So fellow CC5 participants, I want to pose a question. Given that most of us have had time with some or all of the clubs, are there any changes you’d make to bag composition if we were given the opportunity to make some switch outs prior to the challenge starting?
  5. Yeah I’m anxious to get things going too. We just got some catastrophic flooding here so probably won’t be playing for the next week or so
  6. Carry is measured if you are hitting balls on the course or at a range and it can track the ball the entire time. Carry is calculated if you are hitting into a net by factoring in ball speed, launch and and spin (which is also calculated/estimated most of the time)
  7. How the hell can a unit give you accurate carry distances or ball flight trajectory, direction and shape when it cannot properly read spin? spoiler: it can’t
  8. MGS review is up and they did a great job of making it sound better than it actually is. Need 16ft of flight (good luck getting a net big enough to allow that) Driver RPMs off by hundreds and iron and wedge RPMs off by thousands Sometimes reading fades as draws and vice versa? $600 gets you that? No thank you.
  9. I found the changeable weights really made a difference. Had an M Craft I and still have an MCraft II - both feel much better with the 3gg weights (345g head weight) as opposed to with the 8g weights (355g head weight).
  10. They don’t necessarily get to choose the exact ads, but they absolutely get to choose where the ads are located and how they interact with the site
  11. Eh I am all up in the google ecosystem so that wouldn't make a difference. Plus i like having everything synced across devices. Yup and when you finally click the magic spot to get them to go away they reappear midway through making a long post and cover what you are typing. Great user experience! It's painfully obvious the ones making the advertising decisions aren't actually using the forum
  12. The ads on mobile (iOS using chrome browser, so no ad block option) theyre friggen ridiculous now there are ones that animate , shrink the screen and you can’t click anywhere until they are done animating. Give us an option to pay a yearly fee have an ad free experience or make it so a certain donation gets no ads they are becoming more and more intrusive and have led to me browsing and posting less because they make the experience less enjoyable
  13. Are you playing as a single? Just really going to be always an issue unless you are playing late in the afternoon
  14. The Radspeed 3W has been one of the highlights for me thus far for sure.
  15. G410 LST. It was my baby. My stenson 3w. Then 3 weeks ago i noticed the face was caving in. Ping sent me a g425 LST as a warranty replacement.
  16. 425LST has been nice at the range so far for me. Going to take a few good rounds on the course to stay in my bag and not sell the head on eBay and by a few 410lst heads
  17. Why did you guys decide to have lie angles different depending on what loft driver head you chose (10.5 head is more upright than the 9* head in both the standard radspeed and the XB)
  18. Yup. I believe arcccos overly values fairways being hit. I’d take 90 yards out from the rough over 170 yards out in the fairway almost every time.
  19. I’ve noticed that with the caddie feature as well. To me it values accuracy way too much over ditsance
  20. There was a similar post on Instagram regarding the titleist testing. Made it sound like you had a chance to get selected to just liking the post
  21. First round with my standard size grips ( removed the crossline plus grips and put on standard tour velvets ) and man what a difference in comfort level. Hit the driver the best o have since I got it and the irons we’re definitely more manageable. Wedges were great on approach shots. Course was in really poor shape around the greens which led to some brutal lies and awful chips, but still scratched together a good round.
  22. We just finally started receiving the final pieces of equipment. The challenge should start around Labor Day and there will be a new thread created for it
  23. Speed, strike point and dynamic loft are the 3 main variables in creating spin. Simple video and explanation here https://blog.trackmangolf.com/spin-rate/
  24. Haha the headcovers are something I purchased by myself from their website
