  1. Update to CC5 It is with some sadness that I have to do this update as the competition this year has had to be cancelled. Due to delays in equipment arriving to the testers and our now shortened days for parts of the country and world it is not possible to run full proper competition. We had adjusted and made amendments to it back a month or so ago hoping to get 4 or 5 good weeks worth of competition, but sadly with a few still missing clubs it just isn't possible. That being said our testers will be putting up full bag reviews of all their clubs over the next little while in the original testing thread as well as updating some of their thoughts and such here in the pre chatter thread. The competitors already have been informed of this and are of course disappointed they weren't able to participate in a full CC5 event, but we appreciate all their efforts in keeping everyone informed and updated with how their clubs have been working over the last while. Sadly with delays we just weren't really able to get off the ground. This has also not been the only test which has been effected and as we have seen in some other threads many many manufacturers are having these same issues. This all being said thank you again to the competitors, thank you to Cobra for providing this opportunity and of course MGS for their support in providing the community with these testing opportunities. With that stay tuned for more reviews on the clubs some of which will be dropping this week!.
  2. Update for all: We had a bit of a hiccup on the backend with the accounts to get the coaching feature for us so we are still awaiting news on this. We are hoping to have it cleared up shortly and have access to the feature as well. On a personal front I was away on a work assignment for a while then came back home and my parents are visiting Switzerland from Canada (also first time in Europe for them) and seeing as we normally only see them once a year I have to give them priority which has stalled most my updates. However they did bring my "backup bag" all the way from Canada so I have my lovely Cobra Fly Z+ driver back to replace my broken GBB Epic Sub Zero. Along with my other gorgeous fly z pro irons, black trusty rusty wedges and more... can you tell I'm happy to have them back? In any case things will be fired up again shortly and I have still been using the net to get some good swing feels as well as some videos which have been fun to analyse my own swing and when the coaching feature is activated it will be interesting if they see much of the same thing or something completely different.
  3. Okay I think I understand a little more. The reason all the tests are not together are because this new platform runs separately to the forum which is why they have the new sign up method and so on. With this all tests from this year forward will be all together in the new area. All others 2020 and prior will be in the other past tests. Unfortunately there isn't really a work around with this unless we created all new threads for every single test that we have ever done which well frankly I won't be doing.
  4. They shouldn't be on any back pages. All the tests show up anytime there are posts in the Recent Content stream by default. So maybe there is a setting that we are missing on your account that could be causing that change or to not appear. I should also add that all the CC5 club reviews will take place in the testing page.
  5. I'll check, but I don't think it can be separated like that. I know I've mentioned it before in this thread, but the new testing platform is basically a separate site to the forum. This is why all the old tests (pre new systems) are in a separate tab. The new system has a better search function as well and will enable you to also sort by a star rating system. With this it will catalog a lot of tests and have ways to sort them down the road. I'll check in, because i do know that we will need to change the title from current tests to something else in the future, but unless a full new page is built for archiving I'm not sure how that will work. In any case I'll pass along the feedback. Also just want to see what you mean by main page? Do you mean forum or recent content?
  6. Thanks @Golfspy_CG2 for setting this up. I know I'm not eligible to win, but still submitted a team to see if I can beat everyone anyway!
  7. I mean injuries are bound to hit me soon then it will all be for nothing, however i will enjoy it while it lasts.
  8. With the ultimate customization of your wedges and clubs will you look at expanding that to color customization as well? Or would the costs outweigh the benefits of something like that?
  9. Not much of a story. Doing some training, hit one shot sounded funny. Setup hit a second and sounded worse. So put it down and saw a cracked crown. Taking it to the shop and looks like Callaway may replace it or repair? Oh it's a Epic Sub Zero OG
  10. I see your team in circus league but not the main one...
  11. Serves as a good reminder to make sure all teams put in (---) their mgs tag.... Yes that includes me which I'll be doing shortly.
  12. There are a lot of teams that have yet to trade which is all good! Definitely not something that is for everyone. I made most my moves before the draft and one after. I have a few offers out there, but I'm happy with my roster and won't be going crazy because I've constructed a solid team so far which should be okay? That being said I am still open to offers and will do my best to either counter OR give a reason in the comments why I did't accept the deal. I still would like to buy a WR4, but feel more will options and so on will come from waivers.
  13. I will say that (I know this wasn't possible), but had waivers been sooner we would have seen a lot different situation. Rosters would have been filled and teams wouldn't have felt the need to do some of the trades which they have done. The good (and bad) thing is goodness only knows what can and will happen with injuries and the like so truly nobody has won it or for that matter is out of it yet.
  14. I decided on an amount I wanted going into the season and decided to spend the rest if possible. I think I've put out enough to get all who I want but who knows. Honestly my bigger concern is that it runs properly as we had a couple issues in golf with priority settings. That being said I will take a screenshot of mine before as well just in case. Thankfully there are a LOT of good names out there and a lot of good players to fill in rosters, plus I hope trading pick back up after a little. Still lots of moves to be made for some teams.
  15. Feels like forever since the draft and waivers... I'm extremely interested to see how much many are dropping on players tomorrow. I have a feeling there will be some empty budgets after tomorrows waiver run.
  16. First Impressions and unboxing! Sept 7th To start off I have had my Rapsodo for about a week now and ran into a hiccup to start. Although my ipad is compatible on the range and course, it is NOT net compatible. It is a little disappointing as it isn't too old, but I understand and will be looking to update it at the end of the month as net practice at home is where a large focus of my review is going to be. With that I also got my new net and matt! Another hiccup is my driver decided to explode so I am waiting on my folks to come visit from Canada where they are bring my backup bag and a old driver. With baby on the way and some more things a new driver isn't quite in the cards at the moment. So here is the setup! The net was pretty simple to setup even with budget ikea instructions. It also came with a nice bag about the size of a baseball bat bag which it will fold into. Construction is sturdy and its is 8" by 8" by 8" so plenty of space. I also like there is a middle net which helps stop or kill some of the momentum also making me feel a little more comfortable hitting it towards the wood wall which is my neighbours living room. The mat is nice, not a lot of padding but enough that it feels good to hit off of even on the outdoor tiles. To start I did some baseline numbers with PRGR and swing speed is up and solid so I have a good idea of what to expect going in. I'll do a lot of numbers compared to PRGR as at $200 there can be the question what does Rapsodo give you for the extra $300? A few things to start with the Rapsodo unboxing- As other testers have mentioned there isn't a ton to it. The unit, usb c cable (this gets a big plus for me), case and the box with basic instructions. If I'm honest it is kinda nice, nothing you don't need, not a lot of extra waste. Also for me nice that doesn't include a extra wall block as it would have to be Swiss which wouldn't come so would just be tossed anyway. The setup of the unit is also straight forward, instructions lay things out as you would expect and walk you through step by step. Pairing took all of 3 seconds, setup with GPS, calibration and placement not too much longer. Again impressed with the simplicity of it. I did note however I had to take the ipad case off as the device being used needs to be properly in the Rapsodo slot in order to get best outcome. I haven't taken that case off for over a year or so and now I remember why, it was tough! A great case, but don't want it to hinder any results. I love the size of the unit as well. Compact and sleek I would label it as. Again a theme of everything you need and not really anything you don't. For now that will wrap up my first impressions. I am looking forward to starting up the Coaching portion of the unit as it is what really interested me about this unit. I will be starting up a bit later then the toher testers with a work assignment over the next few weeks that takes me out of town, but will try and do some follow up as I get along and hopefully sneak out some range sessions with it over this week before I leave. For your viewing pleasure here is a video of some unedited swings from the other day, this was where I also noticed the ipad didn't function with the net and will need to update.

  17. Awesome to have you and thanks for joining the MGS forum with this AMA. I've seen the reviews before and have been curious about them even with me being a lefty. My question is how much do asthetics play a part in the wedges you have designed? They are very unique looking wedges and may not suit everyones eye, that being said should raw numbers simply outweigh that or will the way something looks always play a significant if not larger role then the numbers?
  18. Big congrats to @blackngold_blood on a well deserved title. Sad to see it go, but a class year by him from start to finish. Enjoyed all the trade talks and discussion and now onto football where we are matched up week 1!
  19. Looking forward to this and hoping eventually we see more LH kit available!
  20. TRADES! Keep note that if a trade is accepted by ANY team and involves a player you have in any pending trades offers it will be removed. This is something that happened in golf, so you can sometimes miss out on trade offers. However if you go to transaction history and include deleted trades it will show you what had been offered. This way even though it wont show in your pending you will still be able to see what was offered to you and give you a chance to resend the offer or counter if you like. Also we have made note of this before in golf, but with so many new players good to say here as well. If you do not want to trade or have no interest in trading a certain player a few things can be done. One: post here and say so, makes it so you wont get offers when you just want to stick with your current roster. Two: Update your trade black, in the comments you can say player X or Y is untouchable and finally USE THE COMMENT section when declining a trade. None of us want to send offers to a team that have no interest in trading, saves us time and you so a simple yeah I'm good with my team or whatever you want to say will often suffice. Side note sending a ridiculous counter is not the best answer even if you think it may be funny. With that happy trading everyone and hope you have your waivers ready! I'm slightly terrified of how much is going to be spent.
  21. I see all the comments on my end. I do notice that is says 0 and wonder if this is part with the comments having not been split yet. I'll send it off to our dev and see if they have an answer for it. I can confirm I see all the comments though.
  22. No need to apologize, but check this out! Also their final reviews will be coming out shortly. (Keep in mind the star rating is incomplete at the moment too)
  23. How much faab do you want to place on that bet?
