  1. Jim is a great guy and fitter. And he's a member here. So @Steve-O-hio would be in excellent hands with him.
  2. It's really incredible when you think about the technology in this. And knowing Titleist, you know it was put thousands and thousands of hours and shots to insure it was accurate. Really amazing.
  3. Here's Tony's more in-depth look at it. https://mygolfspy.com/titleist-pro-v1-rct-golf-ball-for-trackman/
  4. TITLEIST INTRODUCES INNOVATIVE PRO V1 RADAR CAPTURE TECHNOLOGY Golf Balls Developed by Titleist Engineers to Enhance TrackMan Data Capture FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (Oct. 20, 2021) – New Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls with Radar Capture Technology (RCT) – developed by Titleist Golf Ball R&D engineers and validated in collaboration with a team of TrackMan experts – are designed to enhance the data capture of launch conditions in an indoor environment and deliver the most accurate information possible. Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls improve the TrackMan experience for dedicated indoor fitting specialists committed to a premium, precision fitting; coaches and instructors aiming to give their players even better tools to work with; and Tour professionals and golfers seeking precision data capture from their indoor practice sessions. “Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls combine the game’s greatest combination of speed, spin, and feel with new technology that more consistently captures precision performance and golf ball data from TrackMan units used in an indoor setting,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “We have worked closely with TrackMan for more than two years to optimize this embedded radar reflective, patent pending technology. The result is a reliably strong ‘signal’ that enables spin capture on all shots.” “We’re delighted to partner with Acushnet on the launch of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls,” said TrackMan CEO and co-founder, Klaus Eldrup-Jorgensen. “Titleist is a brand that goes to extraordinary heights to ensure the premium quality and performance of its products and that mirrors TrackMan’s approach to technology, innovation and development.” ABOUT PRO V1 RADAR CAPTURE TECHNOLOGY (RCT): Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT models offer the same design, quality and performance as Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls but with the enhanced benefit of indoor radar signal capture: • Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT do not require application of reflective spin markers or precision orientation, benefitting indoor-only and seasonal golf facilities that operate a TrackMan simulator and enhancing the golfer experience. • Testing of Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT models shows a 99 percent signal capture that delivers true spin, resulting in even more accurate carry and total distance calculations. • Spin is critical to deliver an accurate data set indoors, contributing to key data points such as peak height, angle of descent, carry distance, roll out, and overall distance. • RCT has enabled TrackMan to improve the spin detection algorithm to require less ball flight to measure spin rate, benefiting, in particular, high ball speed/low spin rate scenarios. • Pro V1 RCT ball models conform with USGA and R&A rules. Availability: Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls will be available through authorized Titleist trade partners in North America and EMEA, as well as titleist.com beginning November 3, 2021, with global distribution to follow in April 2022. MAP: $64.99/dozen.
  5. Well Id you do it on the front. You’ll find out quickly if he has a since of humor. I think @HardcoreLooper volunteers at that tournament. Or maybe has in the past v
  6. Bumping this. As another year of testing comes to close and with revamped formats and all. This still stands out as a Hall of Fame Review! Not that we have an actual HOF, but if we did, this would be an inaugural inducTEE for sure
  7. Not just you I’ve noticed it more of late here and other places. FB for isntance but like I said if it gives you pleasure and serves as learning experience, then by all means go for it But know I wouldn’t play any club in a round that means anything that I did the work on. Someone might get injured by flying components
  8. Not to be that guy. But how about having a trained professional do it. I’m all for guys having hobbies and fun. But if you’re trying to do it and help your play. I’d suggest all us Am’s and higher caps(including myself in this) let the experts do it. Seems to be a lot of examples of late of guys messing up clubs trying to DIY. But if you’re just doing it for fun or and don’t care about the quality or use ability, then have at it.
  9. Yeah. That would have been nice. Would have gotten him back in the Masters. Hopefully he can put some more top 10’s together and get up there on the points list. Although I will say, I never hate seeing a Rory win!

  11. For the record. I consider you an experienced club builder. You were probably building clubs before many on here were walking
  12. Hate to hear that. One big reason I stay in my lane of buying/selling clubs and leave the club building part to the experts
  13. You're welcome Easy. Thanks for the questions, it was fun doing it, I hope it was helpful to some out there. If nothing else, I put it on the line to take all sorts of grief if Carolina falls flat this year..ha
  14. Yep in my 3 and 6 month follow ups it was below 6 which is where the Dr. wanted to see it cutting out the 5-6 Pepsi’s and 4 to 5 chocolate chip cookies a day helped.
  15. Yeah, I meant to explain that in the first post and got called away. It was nice to have that in-depth of discussion with him, definitely a Sunglass fitting I only hit some 6 irons on the range and I could track them just fine. Unfortunately that's only about 140 yards We'll see what happens with the driver all the way out there at 200 to 210...ha
  16. Yep 70 pounds. A combination of being in the hospital for 8 days with COVID (December/January) and discovering your AIC is 11.4 while you're there. Kind of wakes you up and makes you make some changes. I think I have gained about 8 pounds of it back since April, coming into the office every day and eating a bit more than I did for the first few months, but trying to maintain where I am now.
  17. Thanks! Yeah, I've been partial to RayBan over the years as well, just very classic good looking frames. One of the things the optician...who get this his name is Rory and he's a golfer..ha and I spent some time talking about was the lens color. He asked about what kind of sunny days do we have, which knd of sounds odd, but then when he talked about out there in Carlsbad, it's a bright full sun every day they go with darker lens. Whcih made me realize here we have more of a hazy sunshine a lot since it's so humid there is a lot of moisture in the air so it's not as clear and full sun like CA, which I remember from being out there. He said he has more customers on the East Coast ordering the Rose Tint for that exact reason vs a darker black tint. In the short trial outside, they definitely provided enough protection and blocking of the sun. Would love to get out tomorrow afternoon, but we will see.
  18. So as September came close to an end I had FSA money left and really nothing to spend it on. So I did what I was always tempted to do and went against my original eye Dr’s recommendation and ordered a pair of Single Vison prescription. And would take my chances on things like reading a scorecard etc. Well they came in today and not only look great snd feel so much lighter they worked great on the range. No horrible fat contact. At least none that I could blame on the prescription. I definitely can’t wait to get out and try them on course and give an all around test. But I'm very happy with the results and looks as well. SportRX can’t be beat to work with. Their opticians and experts were extremely helpful in selecting the style, size frame and specs. Uploading my Script was very easy.
  19. Good shots are you, Bad Shots are the club or balls. I've gone with that theory for several years
  20. Yep, and truly not trying to hype them here, but the fact that nearly 80% of all pro tour players play their ball, says something, and I don't want to hear--not from you but the critics--that it's pay to play doing that. It really isn't they are by far the top choice of non contracted players playing their ball and it's more than the others combined. When you are at that level, and heck any level you want to be confident the ball you are playing is round and not defective inside. it's simple as that.
  21. So I have the Radspeed OL from 6 iron through SW (had the 5 hybrid) I ordered them 1/2 over length so they all play so they all play 38" I don't know if I'd go as far as ordering the 5 iron length. I think that would really hurt you more on high end of the bag, I didn't have any issue handling the 38" SW I may be putting these up for sale before long, as I got what I wanted out of them, and enjoyed them but never was going to be a permanent thing.
  22. This is probably truly a case of saving the best for last, or well maybe near the last. No surprises here, but it's always nice to know that a company that touts quality is living up to it. https://mygolfspy.com/titleist-pro-v1-review/#comment-696521
  23. Closing this and removing contact info. as I think most of us would be astute enough not to fall for this. But just in case.
