  1. Congrats and good that you got to go through the process and get something that works for you! Can't wait to see some pictures when they arrive. Thanks for letting us take part and the update!
  2. So cool. Good luck to all those who apply and this one I will be following very closely as it's something that I would definitely purchase. Looking forward to some stellar reviews!
  3. You will know more then I will, but much with my last post I think it's essential to warm up the body before this and golf or really any other physical activity. Especially as we get older, I know over the past few years I definitely feel my body not quite being able to do what I use to and need that extra time to warm up for any activity I do. I can feel stresses on my body (especially knees and back) and work hard to be more active on daily life to keep up that mobility and flexibility. I've even gotten into a routine of doing their dynamic warm up on off days.
  4. Nothing with my lower back and the only discomfort I've felt has been with off hand swings. The warm up before is very important and will help prevent any of those issues.
  5. A interesting article about back swing for any of those interested. https://golf.com/instruction/driving/faster-backswing-driver-hit-ball-longer/
  6. Extended plateau for me. This for me is a longer goal. I plan on continuing this for a long time and using it to really push my game forward. Plus I am still driving the ball well and not seeing any negatives yet.
  7. Awesome to hear! Glad to new sticks are working out so far too!
  8. I would be looking for head then shaft because a shaft can act differently depending on the head. The i210s are definitely in a similar forgiveness category as the apex and 919's. I guessing you're going to a good fitter so they will hopefully go through everything and listen to your input as well as work with you to find what's best overall. Hard to go wrong with your initial thoughts and srixon is a fantastic product so have fun enjoy it and looks like you're getting lots more feedback here which is great!
  9. Good you have a general idea of what you're looking for, but keep a open mind to lots more. Not Forged, but ping i210 are fantastic (we have some good reviews of them here) tm p760 are a favorite of mine. Not to mention all your other bigger names Callaway and Titleist... I haven't hit the new Forged Tec from Cobra but loved previous versions of those as well. Hopefully your fitter can narrow down a head that works well and then focus in on shaft for you. I know that has made the biggest change to my game and ball striking! Good luck and looking forward to hearing what you get into and of course some pictures of them when they arrive!
  10. Just a quick update because we have had a lot of talk about tempo. For me personally I tried out a few different methods today quick back swing, slow, inbetween, controlled and more wild really trying to get a rebound and I found that again for me a slower more controlled back swing and applying more force through the ground then swinging free gave me the fastest swings and the fastest swings to date so far. I also have my fastest starting swing with 107 so I am definitely seeing a increase. Looking forward to the rest of the week and hopefully able to crack 120 with a driver for one swing!
  11. Good luck and enjoy guys! Awesome group and should be a ton of fun to watch you guys go through the review process
  12. A little tease of some pictures to come... Finally found a good theme for these!
  13. I am bit on the other side. I havent used my setup this season, but rather then get into all that I will say their customer service has been amazing. I have had a few sensors die on me and a quick email and that day they have normally sent out new sensors to me. Yes it can be annoying that some shots don't get picked up or that sensors die, however I have lived the system from day one and just enjoyed using it. I normally go through my round after to check on any missed shots or pins and off I go. Only thing I have found is that my handicap is way different on it then in real life and in part I think that is due to some of the course ratings where it doesn't have all the tees assigned.
  14. Week 3 Protocol 1 recap: June 25th Week 3 was definitely a step up from week 2 here are the numbers session by session. Start End Light ND Light D Med ND Med D Heavy ND Heavy D MAX! 103 111 102 114 101 114 95 109 123 105 119 107 130 103 123 103 115 128 104 113 104 116 98 119 95 107 121 Step Change Dominant/Non Dominant 116/103 109/99 106/96 122/107 118/103 114/100 118/108 110/100 100/96 Quick hits- This week was simply better, a lot more rest and just overall better results. - Hit a milestone finally reaching 130! and got up 119 with the driver, still waiting to see 120 - Noticing how important it is to have a good base for these swings, its not as though I loose balance, but having a solid setup and base gives the freedom to launch away and get some great numbers. - For the first time so far the final session of the week was arguably the weakest, I did it around the same time as normal, same routine, same footwear and all that. Is a little humid but never felt as though I was loosing the club, however I just didn't get the results. My off handed (RH) swings felt tight and just not all that appealing. Even when loosening up they didn't feel good and I felt stiff. Only thing I can maybe think of is that we went canoeing the other day and may have worked in a few muscles... although if anything I honestly figured that would help. - I have a few rounds booked for next week so I can't wait to A get to a range and see some fly as well as see what its like on course. I am hoping to have another 2 sessions in before my next round and will be sorting out ARCCOS to make sure I get some reliable distances. That is all for this update, of course more to follow and hopefully will have some new pictures and content to upload in the coming days.

    You're too quick! Thanks for linking that in and saving me the trouble of finding it.

    Apparently the Mizuno golf balls are very high in spin. Only tried out a few times, but seems like a great ball and definitely has a different looking simple pattern that would lead me to think it has more spin. Also Bridgestone is one to look at, the ball tiger uses same thing is apparently very high in spin. I'll try and find a link to last year's golf ball test, it has a ton of charts and such that should help narrow some of your choices.
  17. Given how many they are testing and the results that come back I personally feel they are doing a good job. They seem to test about 400 per week so close to 1200 total and only 3 positive, not bad. The hope is that they are doing a good job distancing and making sure players aren't coming in contact with too many others so it doesn't spread quickly.
  18. Not likely I'll get anything amazing for them, but Spieth, Rickey and day are on the block for those interested. Along with HV3... Who are we kidding the whole team is available for anyone looking to do some shake.ups.
  19. I'm going for anyone on my fantasy squad! So Spieth, HV3, kisner and Day. Only 4 in the field so could be a struggle this week. Outside of that kinda hoping to see more Canadians do well. Conners has had a great season so far... Well since the restart at least.
  20. As many have already said it doesn't really matter. A lot of same brand set ups have to do with preferable to a brand and in some cases the fitters preference to a brand. One of the big terms used by MGS is be your own brand. The really holds true in a good fit process where it's unlikely you would get fit into a single brand top to bottom. That being said depending on where you are in your golfing career and budget sometimes buying a good boxed set (TM and Cobra have had good ones in the past) then slowly upgrading different areas can be a great way to get started. For me personally there are certain brands I prefer over others, yet I still carry clubs from a variety because they are what work and are best for me. In the end if it works and I like it I don't really care which company it came from.
  21. I mentioned it in the lefty thread, but TC from NLU is going the entire season lefty included their tourist sauce season. Had some really good and interesting reasons behind it and will be amazing to watch. I may be able to scrounge up a right handed set in a week or so and give it a try for those who may be interested. I'm thinking only 9 holes though haha
  22. Anyone feel they could make a solid effort at going opposite handed for a round or two after this? I don't mind my swing speed numbers, but I feel making contact would be a whole other issue, however the swing feels a lot better then I would have figured. Oh and reached 130! With the green stocks! Still waiting for 120 with the driver with a few at 119.
  23. I am in favor of anything that will help a lefty
  24. Can't wait to get my bigger names firing away. So far they have been let downs and the back ups have been on fire!
