    I don’t know if golfworks would be willing, but I would love to see tests of Maltby drivers and irons.

    How about a data comparison between like item winners from the last year 3 years for anything that is being evaluated.  With the restrictiveness of the rules the windows for improvement seem to be closing to minimal gains.  The most important thing for my game may be very different than what another player may be looking for.  I may want the straightest ball, iron or driver and someone else may be looking for gear that will draw or fade more easily.  We need to know if the new gear is better than what we could pick up cheap from the last year or more.   
     
    I would also like to see more japanese forged irons.  
    How about some boutique brands of putters, wedges and irons.

    I have occasionally purchased used, recycled (not refurbished - avoid) from a couple of sites and have had very good luck with all purchases. I recommend halfpricegolfballs.com or golfballplanet.com. Both sites offer a great selection of brands and condition ratings at very reasonable prices.

    All time fav was the real deal Fuji 757 Speeder that TM matched with the R510 TP. Heavy, low torque, low spin.

    Oh my...There are several...
    The GOAT in my opinion is the Grafalloy ProLite 35...The first premium shaft that paved the way for the Speeder, Diamana BB and others.  This shaft in a Callaway Great Big Bertha was pure.  I loved that setup.
    As far as my favorite ever...man...This Tensei 1K white is a contender...

    Would love to see Mizuno up their game, but I suspect Cobra will continue to set the bar in terms of highest ball speed.

    Played with Lamkin Tour full cord for years, then switched over to the GP Tour Wrap (liked the tackiness). Recently I purchased a used Mizuno Type ll driver and it came with an Elite grip. Similar to Iomic in terms of tackiness but firmer.
    Liked it so much, I purchased 2 dozen. Unfortunately I had to import them from Japan (couldn’t find a dealer in North America). A bit pricey like Iomic, but I think they were worth it. They come ribbed and non ribbed.

    MrHogan reacted to Headhammer in New Driver for beginner   
    Honestly, as a beginner you are not going to be able to discern the minute difference between those drivers right now. Your best bet is to pick-up a cheap used late model name brand driver on ebay, Facebook or Craigslist, get some lessons, develop a repeatable swing and then get fitted for a new driver. If you've got money to burn you could try the Dollar Driver Club where you can try out a few different drivers each year till you find one you like.

    Your wife is truly an incredible and understanding person. May she be a true inspiration to all wives out there. 
     
    Best of luck with your search for the perfect driver. 👍⛳️🏌️‍♂️

    MrHogan reacted to therod in Driver acquisition time...!   
    For my birthday a few weeks ago, my wife told me to get a new driver. She told me I could go to Club Champion if I wanted. I think I would rather go to the local PGA Superstore and hit everything they have. I'm a lefty, so that will narrow the field quite a bit. I did a truegolffit a few weeks ago, and it put me in a Wilson D9, with a TSI1 as the 2nd choice. I would also really like to tit the new Cleveland Launcher XL and the Exotics C721. And I'll see what else they have. I also have a brand new Evenflow Max shaft that hasn't even had a tip on it yet waiting for me to give it a shot. Needless to say, fun times ahead!

    MrHogan reacted to Shankster in Shortening 4 iron   
    Your 4 iron is likely only a half inch longer than your 5 iron.  I really don’t see any value to shortening it.  You’ll mess with the swing weight, shaft, and lie angle.  Smash the 4 iron as is, I would say.

    MrHogan got a reaction from sirchunksalot in What's going to be the best/worst part of your game post-quarantine?   
    Best part of my game will be my appreciation for the things i have in life. Getting a bit emotional here and by that I mean, my patience will be better and I think I will become more appreciative of what I have. Missed putts, strayed drives, bad lies and poor weather will no longer be something that will dwell on. I will definitely take the time to appreciate my family more, playing partners and stop periodically to smell the roses. I really believe my game will improve with a clearer mind.
    With cabin fever setting in, I think my putting will be the best part of game. May have to bring the mower inside to level out my downstairs carpet because I’m grooving a runway from putting practice. 
     
    Stay safe and healthy everyone.
