  1. Yeah I don't play tournament golf so I carry a PW, 50, 52, 56, 60. I can get buy with less, but if I've got them, why not use them?
  2. Heavier grips moves the balance point higher = making the club feel lighter. The opposite is true for lighter grips. I put some JumboMax Ultralite grips on my father in law's clubs. He likes the heavier feel of the head, so he hasn't had an issue.
  3. It's definitely a personal preference for sure. I play KBS C-Tapers in my irons, but really disliked the feel and control I got from the KBS Hi-Rev shafts in my wedges. I played some wedges with the TI S400 and really liked the feel and spin. I currently have KBS Tour S+ in the wedges and I do like the stability in them and the spin on partial shots. Wedges are tough because, unlike most irons, you rarely get the chance to try different wedge shafts in a head to see what you like. It's a lot of trial and error. It was great when Scratch was out because they had a fitting cart and vokey did for a bit as well. Edel wedges offer a fitting cart in some places as well. Good luck on the search!
  4. Unless I'm hitting a tee shot that I want to roll or a punch out, I don't like to see my irons really roll out at all. I want to hit those things a specific distance and have them stay there. Most people expect their longer irons to run out a bit, but from 7 or 8 on down, you shouldn't want any roll on your normal shot. If you're seeing run on the short irons, it's time to look into a new golf ball or weakening your lofts.
  5. I want to be able to pass the knowledge on to the kids I coach. I feel that if I'm not a good player or can't physically show them what certain things look like, I'm not an effective coach. Also, I want to win my family's golf tournament. I'm already the low handicap guy and I need to shoot 2 rounds at just about even to win (FYI I've never shot a shore of even for 18 holes). So yeah, I need to be good at golf lol
  6. I want to see the talk of bringing the app back. When it was on my phone, I felt like I checked it daily. Now, with everything else going on, I feel like I spend less time on MGS. It's not a knock on the site itself, but I just feel like if it's not right there, more stuff grabs my attention/time.
  7. Whenever I do them for people, I have them there with me. I put it in straight to my eye and then lay the flat part of the grip on a flat surface to check the angle. Everyone's eyes are different, so as long as the person likes the way it's set up, there's no complaints. As far as manufacturing tolerances, I've seen more than a few grips come from the factory that were significantly off center.
  8. I've tried these at a couple of demo days I've done. They are ridiculously easy to hit. I was bundled up with multiple layers, a winter coat and some thinner under armour winter gloves (welcome to demo days in Michigan!) and I could still find the middle or close to it with these things.
  9. For me I do two extra wraps and then a final layer. I use all double sided tape because then I know the thickness is the same and that's the way I did it back in the shop. I make sure that I alternate the seams on the tape. I used pure grips a long time ago and I liked the feel of them, but I found that with the painters tape underneath, the grips would turn and twist. Just my two cents worth.
  10. So I've been fortunate enough to have had 2 testing opportunities for MGS and both have worked out really well. I saw that you mention the "star" rankings on the reviews. Is this something new? Is there a way to see what ranking our reviews got? I checked my profile and older threads, but couldn't find anything. Having feedback from the MODs on what they would like to see or what they think we can improve upon as testers would be great!
  11. I've used a heat gun plenty of times with zero issue on steel or graphite. It makes the job so much easier!
  12. Anyone have one of these laying around? I've seen a few on ebay in the UK, but nothing much in the states. Thanks!
  13. I read that Cameron Champ put 2 i525 long irons (3-4) in the bag recently. Sounds like he was reaching high 170s ball speed off of the 3 iron. Pretty crazy!
  14. Who is going to go and fetch all the balls off the hillside lol This would be awesome!
