  1. Love it, I keep trying new drivers for fun and to see if anything really matches up but nothing except the epic has really matched it. It's just a really solid driver and has great adjustability. Huge fan of it! Very underrated driver overall.
  2. Hello all, I have been around MGS for a little bit now. I absolutely love the forums, conversations and all the tips and tricks everyone here provides. My phone battery certainly gets eaten up by the time spent here! I work as an ice technician for curling clubs which is absolutely perfect for golfing as my work ends around beginning of May and doesn't start back up till sometime late august. I do help out at one of the local courses to kill time and learn some more about the industry. This is the first year I have ever bought a membership at a course and have made great use of it so far! Barely missed a day even with our less then ideal weather here. Anyway just wanted to say hi and thanks to everyone here at MGS for the great content and conversations. I look forward to being part of the community here!

  3. Last year found a pair of Puma BioDrive Leather shoes at a local course being cleared out. Extremely comfortable, I use to always find my feet getting sore after rounds with the Nike shoes i previously had. These definitely were a great purchased and have held up very well!

  4. It may be on the expensive end, but I was in the same boat as you with 3 woods and I ended up trading in my r15 3 wood with the bonus credit and picked up a cobra f7 3 wood. I wanted a 5 but they don't make them in lefty. Anyway it's been an amazing club and I've used it a lot. Super easy to hit. Launches the ball high, long and straight. Has a ton of different settings loft and weights to make getting fitted properly easy. Definitely something worth looking at. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. I love the cobra blades (amp cell pro to the new king pro) but have to say the whole mizuno jpx 900 range ticks all the boxes for me from players to gi Irons look great
  6. I have to say orange has been on of my favour colours since I was a kid so I do have a decent selection of orange shorts. After that however I'm definitely more plain. Lots of greys, blacks and blues. Here in Nova Scotia a hat is a must for all the bugs, especially this time of year. We get eaten alive and a jar is definitely a must!

  7. As much fun as it is to pump a drive 250+ yards down the fairway say 50% of the time. I'd take going 20 yards less for being in the fairway a lot more. It's amazing how much easier the game is when the ball is in the short grass. Seems like common sense, but way too many times have I gone out with friends and we spend more time look for long drives in the woods then actually enjoying putting up good scores. My father in law has a average drive of about 210 up to 230 on a good day, but he's straight as can be. He's tough to beat when his short game is working because he's always has relatively easy shots into the greens. Distance so often dominates headlines, but could you imagine how much better golfers in general would be if they just focused on putting decent drives down the middle rather then hit the ball as far they can?

  8. Stunning set! Love those Irons! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. I'd have to agree with the mizuno 900 series. That being said can't go wrong with ap2's and if you look at slightly older models the mp25s from mizuno are great. I love my Ping i e1 so those would be another iron I'd recommend looking into on the last years model list! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  10. Two things recently for me. One was a pair of shoes on for 50% off at a course I don't normally play. I tried them on and that was that, threw the old ones in the truck and played with the new ones. Then I was at the store looking at the f7 3 wood and ended up walking out with two shop worn callaway MD3 wedges for $120 cdn! Most used clubs since then! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. I always seem to have one or two bad holes a round. It is something where I'm not a great golfer and should be more taking lessons it is bound to happen. Usually after that bad hole I try to relax and remember that I'm out to enjoy playing and be outside (hopefully in the sun) and more times then not that will help get me back on track. Somehow I find it very hard to not enjoy golfing even if I'm playing terrible. One good shot and all the confidence comes back. Plus there are always more good rounds and more good shots to come down the road! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Had one of these happen today on the course. Par 4 about 320 with a island green going down hill. I always hit my 3 wood down because it sets up will for a wedge into the green. This time it popped way off high toe and I lost it as it went on into the trees. Being that it was a crappy day and it was only me on the course I grabbed another ball and hit the nice little draw where I had intended on hitting my first one. Grabbed my tee and went on down to continue the hole. Much to my surprise both balls were within 10 yards of each other and in great spots! No idea how it got there, but I was quite happy to see it there in the middle of the fairway. Ended up with a par and onto the next hole! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Of course the fitting will tell you what's best for you, but I'd definitely be rooting for the f7+. Hit one side by side my fly z+ at a demo day and all the numbers were very similar, but it definitely felt softer and was more forgiving. Plus the matte colours are gorgeous!

  15. Tee off in a hour and a half! Unfortunately we have had a really bad May in Nova Scotia and it's been raining and colder nearly every day, but still great to get out on the course regardless! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  17. Highly overlooked part of a lot of recreational sports. Warming up and stretching is very important. Great write up and thank you! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  18. I won't lie as long as it's coffee I'm happy. There are very few places I don't like coffee. Tim Hortons is one of them, but even in a pinch it will do. Gotta love a pour over first thing in the morning though! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. Completely agree. I've used a the cobra fly z+ for a few years now and have tried several other drivers including the king ltd, and so far nothing has beat the fly z+. That being said I did try the epic and wow. Didn't get any numbers to compare, but it certainly felt and looked like it was going just as far and straight. However tough to justify $600+ for something isn't that different in performance. Maybe I'll have to get a launch monitor to really test side by side.
  20. Tons of rain here in Halifax has turned the creek into a raging river. Great fun though!

  21. It really is a great community here. Love the in depth reviews of equipment and all the good conversation. Hopefully MGS gets more gear to buy in the future. Would love to get a shirt or two that is a medium! And of course there is always the ever hopeful applications for testing products! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. I started golfing when I was younger with my dad, although we kept score I couldn't tell you how well we actually did. We were definitely playing more for the fun of the game then being competitive. It wasn't until about 5 years ago that I took it back up and started playing more frequently. Since then I broke 100 pretty quick, probably 5 or so rounds. Breaking 90 was later on in my first season back and breaking 80 didn't happen until two days ago! Had a lot of close rounds up to that point, but always ended up in the 81-85 range. Next up is 70, which I have a feeling will take a long time! But here's to trying!

  23. 3 clubs were recently added to my bag. Cobra f7 3 wood, best 3 wood I've ever used. Can't see it leaving the bag for a very very long time. That and callaway MD3 black 56,60 wedges. Which I really can't complain about! So far good clubs. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
