    Black Friday 2018

    I'm not sure what your budget is, or what kind of laptop they prefer, but I picked up an Acer Swift 3 this summer and it's been one of the best laptops I've owned. Worth taking a look at.
  2. Come one, come all, check out this ball. Stage 1 is up!
  3. First Impressions Intro Welcome to the super secret Bridgestone golf ball testing. I am one of the few lucky members who was asked if I’d like to partake in a secret ball testing with some balls that have yet to hit the market. What’s better than trying new balls? Trying new balls that nobody knows about. Bridgestone is hoping to create a successful “in betweener” ball as I like to call it. A ball that sits in between their e6 and Tour B lines. Currently they do not have a marketed name, so we’ll stick with AAMSPD, as that was their confidentiality name when I received them. The AAMSPD is a 3-piece surlyn golf ball that, as you guessed it, fancies those with a higher swing speed. There is also another ball in the works, that you’ll see others review, that was made for those with a moderate swing speed. Now, lets get into the details. First Impressions When FedEx dropped off this package I was anxious to get inside and see just what Bridgestone had sent out way. Thought this will not be the final packaging on the ball, I have to say it is pretty cool to receive something from Bridgestone that says “Confidential.” From what I gathered from our call with Bridgestone, they want these balls to be priced between the e6, which retail at $29.99 and the Tour B, which retail at $44.99. My understanding is they are looking for those players that want a ball that is close to tour level, but aren’t looking to spend tour level dollars to get them. I like that idea. I’ve never been one to buy balls that are $45/dozen or more, I lose far too many balls to spend that kind of dough on them. I tend to stick with balls that are around the $30/dozen range and will pay a little more if it’s something that I really enjoying playing. I think the price point of these will be right in my wheel house. I was able to hit the course a few times to put these to the test against some of the balls I had in my bag, including Chrome Soft, Wilson Staff Duo, and even some Bridgestone e6. From what I gathered, these balls would compete with Wilson Staff Duo U, Taylormade Project a, and Srixon Z Stars.. as they are all balls priced between $30 - $40. Right out of the box, I knew they weren't going to compete with my favorites, the Chrome Softs, but that was to be expected. They aren't the softest and they aren't the firmest, I would say they are right in between, as one would expect with a ball in that price range. I won't spoil too much before getting into the scoring of the ball, but from my time with them around the green and some iron play, I can say they are a ball I will consider when they finally get released. As far as we know, the only release color of the ball will be in white, at least for now. With a variety of colors becoming more popular nowadays, including matte finishes, I believe this is something Bridgestone will look at and consider down the road. I personally am a fan of white, yellow, and a matte finish of both of those colors. I don't care for every other color of the rainbow when it comes to buying golf balls. Since I was able to test these before an official name is released, I am curious to see what they come up with. I'm always interested in stuff like that and how names come about for products, especially golf balls. I tried to do some research, but to no avail. Maybe since their top of the line ball is a "B xxx" and their less premium balls are "e", they will go with a letter in between there? Who knows. I'm looking forward to hearing everyone else's ideas as well. I will be hitting the course as much as I can in the coming weeks to prepare for the questions you all will hopefully have about these balls. I currently do not have a ball that I buy religiously and stick to it throughout the entire season, I try everything out. That being said, maybe this "unknown" will be the one that replaces everything in my bag for months to come... or... maybe not. Stick around to find out.

    Improve to 4-3. Just outside the top 10, I'll take it.

    Am I seriously going to lose by 0.9 points? I need Russel Wilson to just throw one nice completion.

    NFL thread! What are you thinking?

    Took a wild chance in another league and picked up Dez after the news about the Browns releasing Gordon. Guess we’ll see what happens this week.
  7. Something special is happening... New brand? New model? Just bluffing? Who knows.

    That was TOO CLOSE! Luckily Kupp came in clutch for me late last night. What a great first week.

    Thinking about switching from PS Vue to DTV Now. Subscribed to PS Vue since it’s football season, and I’m testing out DTV Now again this evening, as I’ve heard the resolution is better. So far, so good.

    Thanks for going through all of the hassle of sorting everything out and get us rolling. That is one heck of a grand prize!

    Yeah I plan on drafting on the laptop. They seem to be behind the times, claiming they're the home of fantasy sports, but lack an app. Tisk tisk.
