    I am an avid golfer and love trying new equipment and not necessarily only what comes from Golf Digest Hot List. I have participated in various ball testing through manufacturer's sites. I did one club test with Mizuno MP 52 irons several years ago and really learned a great deal about testing clubs for a manufacturer.

  1. From what I've seen so far, you are doing some beautiful work. Congrats on selling one. The heads just look like they are meant to sink every putt in sight,
  2. I tend to agree with Bigjim1013 if I have the ability to tinker with settings I usually get myself in trouble. I am going to get fitted for some PXG irons and will test the 0211 driver at the same time. I'm really looking forward to the experience.
  3. I personally buy only grips made in the good old USA. In the past I was a distributor for Pure Grips, Star Grips both of which are in Arizona and also sold Tacki Mac which are made in the Houston area. Pure warrants theirs for 2 years and Star for 3 years. I converted all the guys I play golf with to either Pure or Star and all love them. The only problem with both is they just didn't want to wear out. When I buy new clubs, I have them ship the clubs sans grips or just put them in the box but don't install them. I then sell them on EBay. Just food for thought. I really believe we need to buy more USA made products.
  4. I am seriously considering the 0211's. I want to at least be able to be fitted before I pull the trigger. I live near Cleveland, OH and am looking to find a fitter certified by PXG for their equipment. I can't wait to try them out.
  5. It just takes a little practice with the compressor. Now I use grips that don't require tape so the alignment process is a snap. I use Pure grips, Star grips or Tacki Mac none of which require tape plus they are all made here in the good old USA!!
  6. I was a distributor for Pure for years and yes the compressor is the way to go. Home depot, Lowes, Sam's Club or Costco all will have the small compressors. Mine ramps up to 100 psi and makes regripping very easy. Good luck with it and I would recommend buying the Pure gripping tool. Pricey but excellent.
  7. This should be a great opportunity. I would love to test the shot scope but if not selected best of luck to those that are. I will be very interested in reading about the experience.
  8. I have been poring over the info which has been very time consuming. I have narrowed down my selections of golf balls down to 3 possibles of which I currently have been playing for the last couple of years. As I am approaching 80, obviously my swing speed has decreased significantly. I am currently playing the Bridgestone BRXS and the Srixon Q Star Tour. I like both balls and I don't think many more options are going to significantly increase my distance. The outlier ball that I am going to try is the MG C4. The results seemed relatively comparable both the Srixon and Bridgestone and in some cases they were actually longer. I will a couple dozen and just see what types of results I can get.
  9. I would absolutely love to have the opportunity to test this shaft especially with an Evnroll putter head. I'd also like to revisit some of my old haunts in SoCal!
  10. I signed up to test the 8 but would test the 7 as well.
  11. Why do most big-name golf companies focus their driver design and engineering specifically for Tour players? MONEY - they get millions of dollars of exposure from television. But where does that leave you? The last thing you want is a super low spin clubhead with a heavy tour weight shaft like that designed for less than 1% of golfers on the planet. An ultralight, high-performance driver that adds more than just distance to your bag is what you need. One that ensures a minimal loss of distance and direction when the club is hit off-center! When the engineers at Speed System Golf drilled into the stats, they found that 90% of golfers have a carry distance under 255 yards, and a swing speed of under 100 miles per hour. The main problem? Weight. Even with custom-fit, high-flex shafts... even with higher loft... the big‑name drivers were just too heavy for 90% of golfers to swing effectively. So the team got to work, building and testing prototype drivers that were optimized specifically for the amateur golfer’s swing. The result: The Speed System Driver In the end, it all came down to basic physics: if you can swing the club faster, you can launch the ball further. And this technology is no joke, it's been tested by Golf Laboratories who gave it two thumbs up. Learn more here and pick one up at a great discount to start your season off with a bang. Your Prescription to a Better Game, GolfersRx Has anyone out there tried or possibly know someone who has tried the Speed System Ultra Lite Driver being hawked by Golfer's Rx? As I have reached the ripe old age of 78 I am curious as to whether or not the spiel given about this product would be considered fact or fiction. If no one has tried it out could MGS possibly do a quick trial, obviously not as detailed as the Most Wanted but to see if any one of you sees a difference in distance. Thjey purport the club to be for senior golfers whose swing speed has decreased. Just curious. Vern Haynes Austintown, OH
  12. Vern Austintown, OH I am a senior and qualify for slow speed and would love to test the Epic Speed. I currently carry no driver and use a 13.5 deg. Tour Edge Exotics EXS 220 with a regular shaft. We play at least 4 days a week weather permitting so I would really be able to give it a good go and would to share the results with all.
  13. Vern Austintown, OH Walk quite a bit. Currently own no push cart.
  14. Sure do hope I can qualify for this opportunity to test the Rad Speed.
  15. Very happy to see the Ping G410 still hanging in there. Totally surprised at PXG being the bargain. I plan to test the Tour Edge Exotics EXS Pro and the PXG 0211. I am curious as to how much difference there was between 1 and 38 in actual yardage. As always a fabulous test.
