  1. The only reason why I'm doing Arccos right now is someone gave me the never opened sensors for $40, so I couldn't pass it up. I'll see after a year if I'm looking to consider switching
  2. Based on previous reviews, it seems that Arccos has worked better with Apple in the past vs Android. I was finally able to get mine set up after about 3 calls to them. They were very nice each time.
  3. Glad to know it can be resolved! I emailed their helpline as the app suggested
  4. Hey guys! I just got a set of sensors, but when I went to "Activate Membership" and put in my payment information, it said "error in saving payment information." Has anyone had experience with this issue? I'm running off of a Samsung S22 ultra.
  5. My overall main goal this year is to drop into the single digits for handicap. I ended last year at a 10 and that was with not being able to find a fairway to save my life! I went through some pretty big swing changes a few months after my driver fitting, so the shaft didn't fit me at all. I was able to correct that this year and got the new Callaway Rogue ST Max w/Graphite Design Tour AD TP shaft in it. The fitting went great and I'm already seeing the benefits! To help play more, I joined a Monday night 9-hole league at a local course. It's really helped me shake off the rust from the off season and I'll hopefully be up to form a lot quicker this year.
  6. I've definitely been looking at these books! Brining up something mentioned earlier, are these books still legal for local tournament play? I know the Tours are eliminating them, but I wasn't sure if that was a "pros only thing" or if that was for all competition.
  7. Just curious, did you think about splitting the set and going with the XP in the 4-5 iron? I'd be curious how they would do that if you're only using a 7i. Could you go into more detail on the putter fitting? Did they actually give you numbers for that, or was that more of a visual fitting on the putting green?
  8. Hey everyone! Sorry for just finding this thread, but I wanted to share the official review I did a few years ago of the Tour Striker Academy. This was a 3 day golf school lead by Martin Chuck and this experience I can honestly say changed my game completely! In 4 seasons, I've gone from being easily an 18 handicap to playing as an 8 handicap at one course at the end of the season last year. I'm hoping to be single digits at all courses this season. I can't say enough how much this experience helped me! If you're looking to do a 2-3 school, please make sure this one is on your list!!

  10. I'm sure many of you have would have seen the subscription service called "Short Par 4." If not, it is a subscription service where you can pick from 4 different membership to receive golf related appear or accessories each month. They were running a special on their subscriptions, so I thought I would give it a try! Memberships Fairway Membership: This is the cheapest male subscription. It is $54.95/month, and you will most likely receive 2-3 apparel items such as 1/4 zip pullovers, polos, pants, shorts, etc. Executive Membership: This is the most expensive male subscription. It is $109.95/month, and this will unlock brands such as Ralph Lauren, Travis Mathew, Greyson, etc. Magnolia Membership: This is the female subscription. It is $99.00/month, and you will receive items such as shirts, skirts, dress, etc. Glove Membership: This is a golf glove only subscription. It is $15/glove per month. You can choose between all white or color gloves. Getting Started The process to start these memberships is very simple! You take a "styling quiz" the is composed of 5 sections: Gender Subscription Style Athletic Solid colors, subtle textures, strips, deep tones Examples being Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson Loud and Wild Bold, Strong, and Fun Examples being Rickie Fowler Traditional Solids, Ultra-subtle textures Examples being Matt Kuchar, Fred Couples All Styles Sizing Shirt Pants Shoes Hat Glove Glove hand Additional Handicap How Often You Play Putter Type Ball Preference Wedge Preference Once you've answered all those questions, it takes you to the shopping cart to check out and your first box will be shipped at the 1st of the next month. The selections I made were to go with the Fairway subscription and the "Athletic" style. Review Delivery: The delivery was super quick! It came within 3 days and was in a large bag like the ones below. I received 2 items, 1/4 zip pullover and polo. Both of which were from the brand 1764. The packaging was very good! They were each in their own ziplock bags, with cardboard in them to make the presentable. I will have to say when I first opened them, I was very disappointed at the style though. I went back through my subscription to ensure that I chose "Athletic" style and not "Loud and Wild" as both of these items seemed like Rickie more than DJ. The 1/4 I wasn't mad at, but it wasn't something I would have bought in store. The polo, however, was definitely not my style, nor would I ever wear it. I was very confused how this article of clothing would fit the description that I selected. I will note that the size and fit, were both spot on for what I selected. Returns With polo not being something I'd ever wear, I decided to try their returns process. I noticed on the website they had a section called, "The Vault." In there, it appears there were previous items that were left over, or possibly returns, that you could purchase. My first initial guess was I could just exchange the polo for another one, as I saw that same polo in The Vault listed at $53.95 if you were to purchase it off their website. I went through there "Mulligan" process, which is what they call their returns. It was a very quick form to fill out online to get a prepaid packing label to send back the item(s) you didn't want. When they received the item(s), they then evaluate the condition, to ensure you didn't wear, or damage, them anyway to give you money back. If they do suspect the items have be worn/used, they will only credit back 20% rather than 100%. Here is where I should have done more research! When I saw 100%, I was thinking the $53.95 that they were advertising in The Vault. In fact, "The value you receive will reflect the paid value of the subscription for the items shipped back to SP4 of the current month's package." The go on to list a few examples that I'll share below. Example of Fairway Subscription receiving a Polo, Hat & Glove Paid amount of $54.95 Shirt Value: 70% = $38.46 Hat Value: 15% = $8.24 Glove Value: 15% = $8.24 Paid amount of $27.48 Shirt Value: 70% = $19.24 Hat Value: 15% = $4.11 Glove Value: 15% = $4.11 I only found this out, when I went to my credits, or "SP4 Bucks" as they call them, in my account only 3250. For them 100 SP4 Bucks equals $1, so I only received $32.50 back. I figured ok let's just go ahead and spend the $32 on the account and call it a day. It would be an extra $5 in shipping because I'm not ordering anything over $100. They had a 3 pack of Nike belts and an Arnold Palmer divot tool that was going to total $37, so I was like, "Let's do it." When I went to go pay, and use my credits, they don't allow you to use all of your credits at 1 times. For the amount I was at, I could only use $25 worth. The SP4 bucks could only be redeemed for coupons in $5 increments, and once you got to $25, it skipped to $50. You can also only use 1 coupon per order, so if I wanted both items, I would have to make 2 separate transactions causing me to pay double the shipping. I went ahead and tried to just buy the belts as they were only 24.95, but since their total was not exactly $25 or greater, I couldn't use the coupon. They cut off the prices on every item so you have to go well over the coupon to use them. Either that, you have to complain to customer service to even try to make it work. Cancellation With everything going on, I decided to just cancel the subscription and cut my loses. Of course, they make it so you have to either call, or chat, with a customer service rep to cancel your subscription. You cannot go into your account and just cancel it on your own. We all know what that means, "We're sorry about your decision, but here's XX% off your next order so you'll stay." After a few attempts to keep me to stay, I was finally able to cancel it. Overall Review For the value of $55, or less if you have a code, getting a 1/4 zip pull over and a polo from a good brand like 1764 is a really good price. However, it seems like the styling of what they send you could be greatly off. I don't know if that's due to logistical concerns that are happening right now, or if that's just an issue on their end with what they pick to go into your box. I was also disappointed that you just couldn't swap for a similar priced item within their store. That you could only get a discounted price off another item and not the full amount that they rewarded to your account. Overall, I would only try this again if I could get the subscription down to about $20, but would most likely cancel it after that promotion just due to the concerns I saw with this box.
  11. I posted a little bit ago in this thread on how good I thought this driver was, and wanted to post an update. I did a driver fitting a few weeks ago and my top 3 going into that fitting were the Rogue ST Max, G425 Max, and TSI 3/4. The fitting confirmed the Rogue ST Max was the way to go for me with the Tour AD TP 6x shaft at 45"! I took advantage of Callaway's 150% trade-in and my driver came in yesterday! Here's one of my first hits with it....it's safe to say, I'm very excited for this season!
  12. Thank you everyone!! I definitely think there's some new clubs coming my way for this birthday!!
  13. I wasn't doing a full review on this driver, just initial thoughts/feels. That photo was just one shot where I was happy, and excited, that I got almost a 300 yard carry. All I was looking to do was show it off since that's something I've never done with a driver before especially with a stock shaft off the rack. If I was to analyze that shot by itself, my miss is a straight push, so I typically aim up the left side of the fairway. This shot plays perfectly into that miss with 23 RPM sidespin. Fairway widths are between 25-65 yards with the average fairway width is around 40 yards. This shot for me would have most likely ended up on the right edge of the fairway, or just into 1st cut of rough. I definitely wouldn't call that "quite far offline" as I'm just an average weekend warrior.
  14. Agreed would definitely need to look at a different shaft in an actual fitting. I didn't export the numbers from the session to show the average, but definitely blown away with how consistent the driver was! With different strikes on the face, I didn't have them screaming left or right. The misses would have been just in the rough which I'm normally used to playing from the adjacent fairway or being OB
